Lack of Determination


 

 

Whoever has his chair between two camps
Will neither know the one place
Nor the other one properly

He sits on the chair of indecision
Is neither here nor there at home…

Decision taken


 

 

A convinced person is bound
To his own conviction
Is rather choiceless

It may be good, it may be bad
However, often he is unable to listen…

DidiArtist, 25.05.2020

 
 

Who is good?


 

 

Good is he
Who is only of some use
To others?

Behind judging there is always a motive…
Selfish evaluation…

Love for All


 

 

I am not a Christian, Muslim, Hindu,
Or Buddhist, Sikh, Taoist in particular
Nor do I represent any other religion
Isolated from the others
To separate me from other people
I am unity, belonging to the whole
The boat we all sit in
I am a Christian, Muslim, Hindu,
Buddhist, Sikh, Taoist
And other creeds at the same time
For we are all children
Of the One God
And not split into this and that
We are all this boat in Him

So let us remain in our respective religion
Become a true Christian, a true Moslem, a true Hindu
A true Buddhist, a true Sikh, a true Taoist, etc.
In other words: to become a true man
To rise above separation, dogmatism, fanatism
And live in Oneness and Unity with the One
Then all fights will cease and vanish
Love and respect will increase
And right understanding will grow
Among all people and peoples
To understand we are all One in Him

True love is to love His whole creation
Is service to man, service to God
Helping each other…

Because He is undivided love –
How can we separate this love into fragments…
Even our sun gives sunshine to everyone…

The perennial nagger


 

 

His characteristics:
He knows everything better
Criticizes everything
Knows an answer to all questions
Speaks ill of others
To take a bath in the limelight
His hobbies:
He judges and condemns

Spares himself
Without nagging
Because he is not aware
Of himself and his doings

May he find the road of life
In humbleness and respect…

Self-cheating


We just want to hear
What we like
Any truth that is contrary to us
We sweep under the carpet

Are we afraid
That our innermost is discovered?

Are we anxious
That the truth harms others?

Are we frightened
That we lose appreciation?

Are we scared
That our ego is losing something?

It is an illusory world
That we are building
Leading us to dependency
On the opinions of others…

How much honesty towards ourselves do we have?…

DidiArtist, 20.10.2019

 

We have forgotten what we really are


We’re not the body
Not man, not woman
Not old, not young
Are a smile of the heart
Are soul, drops of light
In the sea of light

Move the body
Like a puppet
Are the vital force
In this house
Are space-ships
Hurrying through the time

We are consciousness
Alive in the moment
Are eternal in the being
Wandering through illusions
Veils of dual worlds
Are cosmic breath

Breathe eternity…

Playground of give and take


Loaded with presents and debts
Man lands in the market world
Bazaar of give and take
Old meets old
Giving hands
Open hands
In exchange
Known faces appear
Join the market
Endless rows of stands
To sell and buy
To lose and find
Business between man and man

Many get “richer”
Become more and more overloaded
Create new debts
While few empty their bags
Pay their bills
Gain rich emptiness
Close old wounds
Go Home smilingly
With empty hands…

Right Understanding – by Sant Kirpal Singh (part 6)


 
 

 
 

Self-introspection


 

 

If we don’t look at ourselves in the mirror
To find the original reflection of it
Then we cannot see us either
Do not know who we are
What we are
Where we come from
Where we have to go…

Then the purpose of life
Is covered by our ignorance…

Man know thyself…

DidiArtist, 15.10.2019

 
 

Oneness is the Goal


 

 

Many roads lead to that one way
Differences flow into equality
Merge into oneness

Where they touch each other
The world is parting
Between death and life

Like an hourglass through time and space
From illusion to reality…

Cry of my heart


 

 

My words are a cry
Of my heart
People, brothers, and sisters
Let’s not seek the fight
Battle among one another
Let us meet in kindness
With compassion and love
Let us free ourselves from hate
Of being better, of craving for power
To find each other in peace
Let our hearts speak
Not our mind

People, brothers, sisters
Let’s replace self-interest.
To help each other
Bury prejudices
Serving each other selflessly
Overcoming pride and ego
Finding our own mistakes
Not those of the others
To make us better
To be higher
To create envy
But to create harmony
Togetherness, not selfishness

People, dear brothers, sisters
We’re all one
No-one’s better, nor worse
In our hearts we are all equal
Let’s stop waging war
Because every war
Is a war against ourselves
Let our hearts speak
Not our mind…

This path begins
By ourselves – individually:
The way of love and generosity…

Let us begin – not tomorrow, NOW…

Painful Understanding


 

 

Only a deep pain breaks through
The wall of our ignorance…

Upside down


 

 

Everything seems to be upside down
Is that why we’re looking
At the wrong end?

Knowledge and Ignorance


 

 

What we don’t know
We ignore
What we know
We sell as omniscient…

What we don’t know
We reject, compensate with know-it-all
Enveloped in our pride
An intellectual fight

With no light
Just tight in mind…

Right understanding badly needed


 

 

Out of misunderstanding
Lack of understanding
The whole world is on fire

Misunderstanding and ignorance
Lead to hate and separation
Is an expression of our ego

May love and benevolence
Be the engine of our actions

May God bless everyone
With right understanding

Thoughts move


 

 

Thoughts move the world
Influence our now
As we are all connected
Not separated
Because we are all
A collective being
One consciousness…

Positive and Negative Powers – by Sant Kirpal Singh


 
 

 
 
Nobody can ever see God-Absolute. God-in-expression called Word or Naam manifests in the form of Light and Sound Principle which can be seen and heard with the inner eyes and inner ears with the help and grace of a competent Master. He has a two-fold function; one that of Kal and the other that of Dayal. Mohammedans designate these by the words Shaitan and Rehman, while Zoroastrians use the term Aharman and Harmuzd. These may be called the negative and the positive powers, both aspects of the One Great and Undivided God.

The negative power, Kal, Shaitan, Aharman, represents the power that is going into expression, bringing all creation into being, and the other, Dayal, Rahman and Harmuzd (the Positive Power) represents the power of inversion, bringing the soul back to its source. These then are the centrifugal and centripetal powers working in all creation.

Mind is an agent of the negative power and always brings one into the outer world. On the other hand, the contact with the Divine Word within leads the soul back to God which is wordless or absolute. Though mind is activated by the soul, yet it has come to dominate it. Again, mind is further controlled by the senses or the outside faculties which in turn drag us into the field of sensual pleasures born out of attachments to sense objects without. Master tells us how to withdraw the soul current by means of concentration at the centre of our being and grants us contact with the Divine Word which is within and which is the way to God. Negative power keeps in control the creation in expression or manifestation. But once the soul comes in contact with the Divine Word, it is liberated from the bondage of mind and matter with the help and grace of the Master, and is freed from the grip of the negative power.

Learning to be Thankful


 

 

When we have lost our jobs
We start to see what we had

When we have lost our freedom
Only then we start to appreciate it

When we have lost stability of our life
Only then we understand its meaning

When we think we are lost
Then we are really lost

As we think
So we become

When we think that each thunderstorm will pass
No wind can treat us like a leaf

When all is back to normal
We are aware – in thankfulness what we have…

Understanding rises out of problems
Is medicine to make us aware of our own value:
We are all human beings
Children of God
Have to live in harmony together
To bring out of us: humanity, thankfulness

Game of Mind


 

 

If we stop playing
The world can no longer capture us…

First, we have to understand this game…

Clouds of our mind


 

 

When too many clouds cover our inner sky
Then how can we see the bright sun?

DidiArtist, 03.05.2020

 
 

Be aware before, not after…


 

 

Could we see in advance
All the bad things we do
The ripples of our actions
We would change immediately
Not to eat the inedible fruits
To have to harvest and eat them…

So let us think twice
Before we release a word or an action…

Gap between Saying and Doing


 

 

It is easy to make politics
With big words in their mouth
Instead of true words in their hands…

Transformation: Drop into Sea


 

 

I wish my I and ego dissolves
Like sugar in a glass of water
Becoming one with the Ocean
No longer separated in my mind

I wish I flew with the birds
Sing their songs of happiness
Across countries without borders
A flying spirit of love and light

I wish I rolled with the waves
Kiss the sand of beaches, shores
Go along in storms and calm waters
Feel all beings in the sea of life

I wish I went with the wind
Around the world, feel oneness
With all creatures
The beat of life

I wish I travelled through time and space
Say hello to galaxies, enfolding universes
Take a ride on sun beams
Hear the breath, the pulse of cosmos

I wish I dissolved in You
O my Lord, Beyond and Here
Merging as a drop
Back into Your Ocean of Life

At Your feet without ego, mind
Light that returns into light
Surrendered in Your Will
To be with You everywhere…

Fights in the world


 

 

Everywhere we see fights
Brother against brother
Sister against siser
Family fights

Everywhere we see fights
People mark their rights
Fight for interests, religions
In thoughts, talks and actions

Parties are against parties
Political oponents, smarties
Groups against groups
Countries against countries

Cultures compare, measure, judge
Who is better who is worse
Attitude of arrogance, anti-humilation
Pride in fights

Where to find this evil behaviour?
In us, in each of us…
But mankind is one
Not yet done

Our fight should not be against others
Not against sisters and brothers
Each of us should fight
Own ego, mind – becoming love and light
