Fast prejudices

Through misjudgment and ignorance
We condemn all too quickly

We should learn
Not to condemn and judge at all

We should be our own judge…

Honest protests?

We are all affected
By the Coronavirus spread around the world
But there are people
They don’t wear masks, see no reason for it
They protest against restrictions

When we were little
Vaccinations were the order of the day
It was normal to be vaccinated
Protests did not rise
We didn’t have the media

Today we have social media
Alongside the traditional media
Today the internet dominates
Fakes and hoaxes everywhere
Influence from all sides

Today’s man does not know
Where to stand
What to believe
So he blindly accepts this and that
Is easily persuaded

Conspiracy theorists, lateral thinkers come into play
They replace doctors and scientists with their opinions
Know the truth, are fanatical
Don’t get vaccinated – that’s still ok
What is not ok is that they do not wear masks

Is it bad to wear a mask
When it protects others?
Not to wear it is irresponsible
Shows the colour of our mind, our ego
We should see the reality in the intensive care units….

Maybe one of us is the next
That the virus will strike
But then our remorse may come too late
In case to die from it
Or get seriously ill

When the bitter realization awakens:
To have protested hiddenly behind half-truths,
To cover up our own ego
To make ourselves look good in front of others
When the wave of truth overtakes us….

Is service to man a foreign word?

May right understanding take its place in our hearts….

Have we forgotten how to differentiate?

Do human rights go so far
To put human lives at risk
Just because it is a matter of self-interest?

When individuals do not submit
To the welfare of all in peaceful coexistence
Not to see personal views represented
Does it then violate human rights?

It violates them only then,
If one’s own view becomes irresponsible
Towards other people
Knowingly or unknowingly
By their decisions
Putting the life and limb of others at risk

In the past, it was the smoker
Who forced his smoke on his fellow human beings
Today it is the mask refuser
Who see their freedom restricted
To decide for themselves

They do not see themselves as a risk
To infect others with Corona
As long as they are not infected themselves
They see only themselves
Not the other…

They say: it is then my death
Not the death of others
Not admitting that there is a risk
Bringing death to others
Without mask protection, without social distancing

They insist on their opinion
Whether with or without a mask
With or without distance
The result is the same for them
In doing so they are subject to a terrible error

They are people who think more of themselves
Rather than on the welfare of others
So-called rebels, lateral thinkers
Who hide behind their own ego

If I knew the mask only protected one percent
Then I know that I can protect at least one person out of 100…

Even that is better than
Exposing oneself and others
To a deadly uncontrolled danger
Without doing anything against it

So is my personal opinion
Not to consider it necessary
To wear a mask, to keep a distance
More important than the possible danger
To infect others (let alone oneself)?

Chaos and collision

What is chaos?
When thousands of individual points of view come together…

What is collision?
When chaos enters the society…

DidiArtist, 02.12.2021

Wrong orientation

Our view depends on our knowledge,
On our ignorance
But often enough we pretend
As if we know certain subjects
Hiding our gaps in knowledge
Behind titles, reputations, and names
Selling false or inadequate knowledge

Result: The world is fed with wrong knowledge…

Murderous

Who murders others in cold blood
Tortures his victims
In boundless hatred
May not call himself human
He has a level under the beast

He who gives the orders
Or who allows such things to happen
Is the proper mastermind of this evil

However, when they leave the body
They must pay a high price
They will then wish they had never given such orders
Or condoned such atrocities

Even kings and statesmen are not exempt from it
If their behaviour is like that
But then their regret comes too late

They look in a mirror of cruelty
And have to face the consequences
What they have done to others

They cannot redeem themselves
Nor can they escape punishment
The law hits them with full harshness

But as long as they can only see
As far as the edge of their plate
They will go on and lull themselves into safety

Because they do not believe
In that divine law
They run away from their own conscience

They may deceive themselves
But they cannot deceive God
Who lives in every heart

Praise and Pride

Just because we are excellent in one field
This does not mean we are familiar with all disciplines
However, we often act as if we would be
Thus we deceive ourselves and our fellow human beings.

In this way, we are carried away
In a torrent of arrogance

Are open to praises
Equally averse to criticism

Addicted to being acknowledged…

DidiArtist, 18.05.2022

A world of tomorrow

What should a world look like
If it is full of egoists?

How should a world be full of love
If it is torpedoed by hate?

How should man evolve
If he continually behaves like an animal?

How should man change
When he continually lives between fear and distrust?

How should the world change positively
If we make it negative?

How should man behave
So that he brings about a worldwide change?

All together we cannot reach this goal at once
Because we are not equal in thoughts

But individuals can rise
To change for the better

Like the beat of a butterfly’s wing
That causes a chain reaction

So the direction of humanity can be changed….

Theory and practice

Sometimes we speak of universal love
As if we knew what truly universal love is

How often do we speak of love and harmony
But do we know what love and harmony really are?

We pretend that we are already love personified
But it is only our words, not our deeds

Understanding universal love, divine harmony
Requires us to live by it, not just throw down words

To understand what love really is
For this, we must first understand ourselves

Not with words, but with deeds
Changing our point of view

To look at everything from Oneness
That will teach our little crazy ego to be silent….

Fearing death – yes or no?

When someone says he is not afraid of dying
How can he say it if he has not died yet?

Actually, this person shows his hidden fear with it
He gives himself courage, even if he is afraid of death

Our ignorance makes us say things
That we don’t know until we experience it ourselves.

We reassure ourselves and want to stand brave
Especially when we say it in front of others, needing witnesses

There is a way to experience death
Even if you are still alive, it is a practical experience

Meditation that goes beyond body consciousness
Where soul rises to the eye focal point, traveling from there to inner worlds

It is the Surat Shabd yoga practiced by all competent Masters
That leads beyond death

St. Paul said, “I die daily…”

Guru Nanak said, “Learn to die a hundred times a day…”

He who knows death no longer fears….

Death, where is your victory? / Death, where is your sting?

DidiArtist, 03.12.2021

Making decisions

Between good and bad
There is a small bridge
It is our choice
Which way we take

Sometimes we do not know
If good is bad
And bad is good
We may decide wrongly

We are convinced our side is correct
Are not really weighing pros and contras
Does my decision only help me
Or does it help others or both

Injustice cannot be justified by silence
For silence means consent
Do we condemn when we speak the truth
If thereby enlightenment is procured?

To be accused of condemnation
Is it a tool of defense, of attack
To oppose the truth
To refuse to believe it?

Sometimes we have to decide
Even if the mind is hurt
But the soul remains untouched
Only pride feels hurt

Between good and bad
There is a small bridge
It is our choice
Which way we take…

Effects of a false pride

How many times our necks were broken
Due to our false pride
Because we are not ready
To give in
To overcome our stubborness…

Lost by ignorance

As long as we live in ignorance
We cannot be honest with ourselves
What matters is the point of view:
Right understanding
Water and bread of our soul

Prayer for peace – by Sant Kirpal Singh Ji

Cowardice and insidiousness

To invade peaceful countries with superior force
Waging a brutal war based on lies
To turn weapons against children and women
To traumatise and kill children, women and ordinary people.
To make millions of people homeless
To insult innocent people as neo-Nazis
Only to disguise the lust for war, power and murder
To set in motion and maintain the war machinery
To incite and encourage one’s own people to war
To sow hatred, enmity and the will to kill
By calling the invaded country the aggressor
As so-called security measures for their own country
To justify reasons for their outrages
How many of their people fall victim to these lies?
They are victims of a large-scale fake propaganda
Without really knowing the truth
Ignorantly supporting this brutal government

The aggressor is not the invaded country
It is the warring country, its leadership
That is the aggressor itself

It is a dark time for humanity
That has his second Hitler

None of this has anything to do with humanity
But with cruelty like in the deepest Middle Ages

DidiArtist, 02.03.2022

Attitude of defence and attack

For some, their defensiveness goes so far
That they can no longer accept anything else
Only hear their own voice

Some take on such an attitude of attack
That they overrule the voices of others
They are empty in their willingness to accept…

Discover own mistakes for the benefit of others

Why is it that we have so many faults in us
That we are not even aware of them?
That we do not even know them?
And even when we know them, we carry on as before
Without questioning ourselves
Without starting to eliminate them

This is why we see the evil in the world
As long as our mind can do what it likes
Without making serious efforts to unravel these faults
To make ourselves conscious of them
To learn from them, overcome them

A state full of these unconscious people
Who do not know themselves
Out of it, these errors become visible
This is what we see in the world….

Sant Kirpal Singh:
“Reformers are needed, not of others but of themselves…”

DidiArtist, 04.03.2022

Expression of separateness

We dream life
In a time-space continuum
Are separated from the whole
On the level of senses
Acting and thinking
As individuals
Trying to conquer the world
Make it our own
Shape and form it
According to our wishes and ideas
As an egocentric worldview
Of intellect, ego, and mind….

Fogged vision

The personal freedom and choice of some
Is so dear to their hearts
That they blindly overlook
When others are harmed as a result…

DidiArtist, 12.12.2021

Restricted freedom for the benefit of all

If you allow someone
To do what he wants
Then this personal freedom leads
To a social chaos
Why laws regulate
That this so-called freedom
Does not become a danger to others

Our traffic system is regulated likewise
If everyone wants to drive the way he wants to
Then this personal freedom
Leads to social chaos
To death and suffering

If a smoker smokes recklessly in front of others
And a law forbids it
Then the smoker cannot invoke
On his personal freedom
Because he harms others

A dictator is himself the traitor to his people

Dictator: “Whoever does not think like me
Is a traitor to the people.”

People are only a means for him to an end
Pretext put forward

In reality, they are traitors to the dictator
But not to the people

However, this dictator does not know
That he himself is the traitor to his people

It is his threats to his people
Which speaks volumes about what he really is
What he is thinking and doing…

Truth reveals even through lies…

Wounded pride

 

 

How it is possible to understand higher mathematics
If the foundation is missing…

On how many misunderstandings do we build our knowledge
And hold on tight to it…

Then when hearing the truth
We cannot accept it and are offended…

We prefer ignorance and old habits
Instead of questioning them…

It is our pride to admit
That we made mistakes…

Because everything that is in fashion seems right to us
Inducing us to do our best to copy everything…

Well, we’re more sheep than we think
If a sheep runs into the fire
Then all the others run after it…

Who can handle the truth…?

False assessment

Just because we are excellent in one area
This does not mean we are brilliant in all areas
But often we act as if we were
Thus deceive ourselves
As well as our fellow human beings

Right understanding, part 53 – by Sant Kirpal Singh

Predator man

Man is like a predator
Lurks up his prey
Creeps upon it
Attacks and devours it
Feeds on the weaker ones
Looks for new targets
To increase his strength
To quench the thirst for power
For a short time

Adapted knowledge

Knowledge can sometimes be crushing
Be a great weight on the shoulders
If knowledge is not digested
That is why the gates of knowledge
Should only be opened to such an extent
As much as a person can bear

So one can slowly climb
The stairs of knowledge
Able to live up to it
Understanding it

Stories and lies

How many stories are necessary
To maintain a lie?

How many lies are necessary
To distract people from it?

How many statesmen tell stories
To reach their goal?…

Human ingenuity

Human ingenuity is mainly busy
To kill each other

It seems that the rest of it
Is just a side product of it

Fear makes inventive
But also makes us kill

However, to overcome fear
Courage is needed too…

Man and technology

DidiArtist, 05.05.2022

Every technical advance and intellectual wealth
Plunges us into deep poverty and crisis
If we have not found a human balance in it
If we lack the human progress for it

Man is in an imbalanced state
Between technical usage and spiritual understanding

DidiArtist, 05.05.2022

Clever manipulation

Some people are so manipulated
By the media, by the internet
That they can no longer distinguish
They live in their own world
Which they proselytise
Even aggressively defend
They abandon friends and relatives
Sacrifice them for their ideology

Reasonable words bounce off them
For they live in their own rationality
Which they only allow taking part in
To those who share their views

A new disease in our society?
Wanted or unwanted….

They tell you: “You are being manipulated”
Without realising, it is them
Who have been brainwashed

Aggressivity is their distinctive feature
