Predator disguised as a human

Something lurks in every human being
Some kind of animal
A predator…

Time to find the human being in us…

Sirens of the World

We admire the real saints and sages
But are too lazy, too distracted
To follow their footsteps

Because the fair of the world enchants
Its glitter steals our attention
Makes false promises

Binding us in a thousand wishes, desires
Into a labyrinth of delusions
Captivating us like Odysseus’ sirens

We should close our ears and eyes….

Separation of people

Cracks do not only go through politics
The virus also divides people
In camps of pro and con

Differences of opinion are aired
Openly with hate and violence
The “right” between claws and teeth

Humanity is forgotten
Parties form against each other
Have no togetherness

One sees the other as a foe
Not as a friend
Raising fingers threateningly

Everybody claims
To do the right thing
No matter how high the price

Everybody wants to see themselves
On the throne of truth and approval
And trample it with feet

Humanity looks different
It unites and does not separate…

Artificial excuse

Sometimes we conceal the truth
Looking for another playing field
For another person
Distract from it
Not to use violence
Yet it is our own scorpion-like sting
To make us lying

Sometimes truth may hurt
But better than to live with a lie…

Wishes of the five elements

We direct our attention
To the high waves of life
Watching for auspicious wishes
Burning with desire
Building castles in the air
Finally stranding at our destination
Caught in the magic of such wishes
In short-lived ectasy
Only to release the anchor again
In the ether of time
On the waves of hope and happiness
Focusing on new lands
Where milk and honey flow

Wishes are like footprints on the seashore
They fade in the waves of coming and going
They keep forcing new wishes upon us
Just to catch a little happiness

This is not the immaculate happiness of life
Our soul searches for, for lasting happiness

Our mind copies the longing of the soul
For that eternal happiness
It chases from wish to wish
Remains trapped in the outside

Blessed are those who are desireless….

Concealed lies

One is so ashamed of some deeds
That one represses them, denies them
Concealed behind lies…

Fallen into a swamp

The deeper you struggle in the swamp
The deeper you sink…

The one lie
Turns into a thousand…

Politics – A sysiphus work

Politics is like
Pouring water into a bucket
That has a hole
Now parties and people argue
Who can fill the bucket…

This does not quench
The thirst of mankind…

Hidden truth

Every quarrel hides a truth:
To know better than the other

Arrogance has never been part of the truth
There is oil and fire in between…

Spreading violence

 

 

The more we deal with violence,
Through movies, games, media
The more it influences us…
Is passed on:
In thoughts, words, and deeds

A virus of our mind…

Frozen prejudices

We often treat people
As if their past is frozen
As if no time had passed
Judge them by old deeds

Lack of understanding

Man is like a child
Playing with the bomb…

Body, mind, and soul – by Sant Kirpal Singh

 
 

 
Man consists of three parts: the body, the mind, and the soul. In spirituality, mind is defined not only as emotions and feelings but also consists of intellect, the self-assertive ego, our imaginations, and wishes, as well as the stored karmic impressions of this life and all previous lives.

The whole world is in the grip and mercy of the mind. Mind is made of matter, it takes the energy from the soul and has acquired astral form in the body and works with four different phases:

It absorbs the attention (the attention is the outer expression of the soul, the soul is working outside through the attention) The result of the attention i.e. its activities. It differentiates through the intellect and affects the intellect in its own way, draws inferences out of differentiation
The mind keeps the man busy through reading, writing, feeling, emotion, drawing inferences on its own way. It also creates desires and identifies itself through the senses and sense organs. Temporarily it has made the soul blind and the soul does not discriminate since the procedure, the mind has developed, is very tedious and uneven.

Sant Kirpal Singh

 
 

Differentiation of feelings between mind and soul

Our mind harbours many negative feelings:
Jealousy, pride, aggression, resentment
Envy, arrogance, conceit, feelings of power
Vanity, narcissistic self-love, accusation
Feelings of lust, self-gratification, self-indulgence
Anger, fear, disgust, exaggeration
Contempt, hatred, desires, greed
Guilt, obstinacy, lies, crimes etc.

Our soul overflows into feelings of the heart:
Love, compassion, pity, generosity
Sacrifice, helping, affection
Selflessness, goodness
Kindness, balance, mercy
Patience, sharing, caring
Courage, serenity, joy
Honesty, constancy, discipline etc.

These feelings are our compass
Give direction
Mix daily
Have their own colour

Let’s take a bath in the heart
To come out with humanity
Human, positive values
In the awareness: we are all one…

Money rules the world

Is hope and destruction
Is help and exploitation
Makes greedy and envious
Proud and submissive
Is a means to an end
For dreams and wishes
Is sorrow and happiness
Is joy and pain
Is rollercoaster of emotions
Makes dependent and repressed
Violent and demanding
Makes corrupt and blind
Is human and inhuman
Is power and influence

Consciousness also means:
Being generous with money….

When will we understand

When will we finally understand
Being willing slaves of our desires
Of our egos and our minds?

Freedom starts in controlling
Our thoughts, deeds, and words
With the help of God

DidiArtist, 01.07.2021

Pigeonhole thinking

When a person is seen as bad
Then even his good deeds
Are judged, condemned within this framework

Pigeonhole thinking…

DidiArtist, 22.08.2021

Too less – too much

All our thinking and doing
Is dependent on our state of mind

How many things we do
That are wrong
In this state
Only to regret them
After a few moments…

A word too much
A deed too less…

Or:

A word too less
A deed too much…

A word wrongly chosen
A deed wrongly made…

Therefore, think twice
Before doing or speaking…

DidiArtist, 22.08.2021

How often

How often do we hurt
Without knowing it?

How often do we ignore
Unintentionally, unintentionally?

How often do we overlook important things
With open eyes?

How often are we deaf
To hear the truth?

How often are we blind
To our own mistakes?

How often do we look away
Without helping?

How often are we different to others
Than to ourselves?

How often do we think differently
Than we act?

How often do we have to fall
To learn from our mistakes?

How often does everything repeat itself
Like Sisyphos rolling a rock uphill?

It may be avoided,
When in our attention lies consciousness
Right understanding…

Plaything of the mind

As soon as one is immersed in the world
One becomes the plaything of the mind

Let us not forget:
We are only guests here

Let us be untouched
From the duality of the mind…

DidiArtist, 11.05.2021

Fight for names

We entrench ourselves behind names
defend them with claws and teeth
In all areas
Do we not know
Truth bears all names and none?

Therein lies innocence and unity, Oneness
For names bear the quality of duality….

DidiArtist, 28.07.2021

Why do we lie?

We lie because we are afraid,
The truth will come out
Because otherwise we miss an advantage
Because we’re keeping a secret
Because the truth can hurt
Because we want to look better
Because we are not aware of it
Because we are not honest with ourselves
Because we deceive ourselves
Because we want to be what we are not
Because we are inconsiderate
Because we want to hide something
Because we have not learned
To be honest to ourselves

Each lie has its start in our head
It multiplies easily…

Proactive Life

A good driver looks ahead
Sees possible dangers coming towards him
Can react prudently

We are our own driver
But we often do not follow the rules of life
Putting ourselves in danger

We are distracted by thousands of things
On the road of life
Often react too late in dangerous situations

Then lie injured on the roadside
No sooner are our scars healed
We invite new wounds

Where are we heading in blind drive?
Without a goal in sight
Wasting precious life time

Conflicts lurk at many crossroads
Let us collide with others
Without insight we go on like this

We all want to go home
Then we should know our way
All the dangers waiting in ambush

Thousands of detours hinder us
Temptations in the marketplace of the world
Keep us from reaching our destination

Let us be a good driver
At the destination we may throw off the fatigue
Enter our true home…

DidiArtist, 26.07.2021

Fallacy

A dirty garment does not come in the wardrobe
Neither does a dirty garment of the soul

We must learn to understand here and now
Become conscious now
Becoming conscious is a process
That cannot be achieved after life
Thus we continue to remain dirty

We should not believe that after death
Everything falls in our lap
Without lifting a finger
Like snapping the fingers magically
To bring a sudden change

No, consciousness must be achieved
By the sweat of our brow

God wants to see our efforts too…

DidiArtist, 11.07.2021 – inspired by Him

Fear of consequences

Within us there is the gate to God
As well as the gate to hell
Good and evil in alternation
Cycle of good and evil
Blood for good
Blood for evil
Deeds and thoughts flow
In these streams
Divide, constantly in a battle
At the end there is a reckoning
The path is drawn…
