Not convincing

That which we interpret as a piece of information
We often want to sell as truth…

Didi.Artist, 30.10.2021

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….

Knowledge from the soul

True knowledge gives us certainty
It takes away the fear of the unknown
For the soul is connected with the divine

DidiArtist, 03.12.2021

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

Our inner room

There is a light switch in each of us,
But we are too blind to find it in ourselves,
To turn it on
So we walk in blindness, darkness

DidiArtist, 08.01.2022

Blossom of consciousness

Consciousness grows like a tender flower
Until one day it opens
Like the splendour of a blossom
It is the beauty of the 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

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

Unity of Man

Love, unity, brotherhood
Respect, tolerance, understanding
Non-violence in thoughts, words and deeds
Oneness among brothers and sisters
Serving, helping each other
Supporting those in need
Sharing and caring
Living in harmony and peace

This all will help us
To jump over the shadows or our own ego…

DidiArtist, 22.08.2021

Fragment and Oneness

Each fragment has an origin
We are fragments
Our origin is Oneness

Time that the sun rays will be united again
With their source:
Sun of life

Yearning, devotion, and love will bring us back
Each fragment reminds us where we belong to…

Where hate is is no love

Love can move to tears and laughter
Unfortunately, so can hate…

DidiArtist, 12.12.2021

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

A cosmic chess position

Our human relationship with each other
Is like a chess game
In that, we are the pawns of a cosmic game
Everything happens: move by move
Each moment results in a new cosmic position
On the fields of life

A game between the powers:
Good and evil…

Impressions of Biji Surinder Kaur – Gurmukh of Sant Kirpal Singh

Shadows of our Selves

How much is real about us?
How much is copied, taken over?

How much is in us
That our mind demands?

How much is in us
That makes up our soul?

We follow our ego
Have selfish goals

We are deaf and blind
Repress our innermost

We wear different masks
Depending on the event and occasion

We are not
What we really are

We are only shadows of our own selves….

When being aware of it, then…

DidiArtist, 18.09.2021

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…?

DidiArtist, 16.07.2020

 
 

Beyond questions and answers

When the mind is still
No question arises, even no thought
Intellect is still
No search for answers

Questions and answers embrace each other…

God touches us in the silence…

DidiArtist, 18.04.2021

Silent thoughts of harmony

Every living person stands at the top
Of a great substructure
Of a great pyramid
Where life was passed on
Until it has reached us

Gratitude – we should have
Carry it in our hearts
Honor our ancestors
As torchbearers of life
Kindling fire, our life’s birth

Over countless pyramids, we all stand together
Are all rooted in each other
So let us share, shed this gratitude
From man to man
As brothers and sisters of life

Now we are these torchbearers
Planting the life forth
Put our hope there
That our children will live a life
In peace and harmony on this earth

May this gratitude rise in all hearts
And make us aware: We are all one
Are all one big family
Are not strangers to each other
Are born of the same substance

For life comes from life…

DidiArtist, 05.10.2021

What is the purpose of life?

Is the purpose of life to accumulate money and things?
To raise a family?
To run after pleasures?
To be as happy as possible?
To fulfil one’s own desires?
To build and follow habits?
To be after acknowledgment and reputation?
Set one’s own memorial?
To repeat this all?
To pass it on to one’s children?

Or is it:
To rise above expectations and desires?
To learn from mistakes?
To overcome one’s own ego?
To serve God and people?
To focus on Oneness as everything is connected?
To become light and love?
To become heart and human?
To connect with eternity?
To awaken from a worldly sleep?
To live and die for God?
To be absorbed in His will?

What is your purpose of life?

DidiArtist, 02.12.2021

Labyrinth of viewpoints

We assess people
Only from our point of view
As life teaches us
But people’s points of view
All have a different angle

Through this labyrinth of points of view
We must find our way
To the freedom
Beyond cause and effect
Matter and time…

DidiArtist, 03.05.2022

True to be oneself

If we want to progress on the spiritual path
Then we have to be very strict with ourselves
We should judge our own mistakes
As we judge the mistakes of others
After a while, we will not see
The mistakes of others anymore
Just our own mistakes

As long our own house is on fire
We cannot help to extinguish the flames
Of other houses

We also will get to know
That we cannot help ourselves very much
It is God who can help us
So why not surrender to Him
Wholly and solely?

Well, it is our mind
That turns the attention
To the pleasures of the world
Distracting us from God

If you ask someone if he is true to himself
And he answers: “Yes I am”
Be sure then, he is not
As he does not know himself
He does not know all the hidden tricks of the mind…

Are you a good person?…

DidiArtist, 03.05.2022

To be in a huff

For being in a huff
It requires at least two persons
Who are responsible
For their saying and doing

The one who offends
Cannot hide behind the words
“You are in a huff”
For he is the cause
To be offended

These words are like:
Oil in the fire

Our words should always be
Smooth and friendly…

Friendly words will usually be answered with kindness
Unfriendly words usually with unfriendly words

It is nothing
But a competition of the mind…

DidiArtist, 03.05.2022

No embracing brotherhood

Wars waged
Do not speak of love
Not of respect
Not of unity
Not of brotherhood
They are the mouthpiece
Of hate and violence
Of lust for power
Of destruction and suffering
A sign of the Negative Power

Those who order the war
Carry hatred and violence within themselves

They are poor souls
They do not know what they do
Do even to themselves…

DidiArtist, 27.04.2022

Fear and ignorance

We defend our point of view
And equate it
With the point of view of others
Without knowing it

It is a protective measure
To continue to go in the direction
That brings us joy and sorrow
Worldly pleasures, disappointments

It is our pride and ego
Not allowing us
To accept another point of view
That rises above doubt and ignorance

It is the trust in the old familiar
Fear of the new way
Fear of having made a mistake
Which is difficult to overcome

For as long as we do not really know something
We do not grant this knowledge to another person
We feel hurt
When new truths oppress us

It is not the knowledge of being better
Compared to other lifestyles
It is a knowledge of humility, not of boasting
What we see normally in the world

Knowledge of practice is required, not theory
Where all the world theorises
Not realising how to live the truth
Instead, faith is followed blindly – in ignorance

It is our lack
Longing for the truth
Leading it through muddy grounds
Instead of living, experiencing it for ourselves

We run after fashion
Do not question it
Do not know its impact, essence
Blindly follow our herd instinct

Ignorance is our biggest problem
Build truth on half-truth, ignorance
And defend our point of view
As if it were the truth…

Truth is beyond fashion, beyond herd instinct
It has no will to offend
But only to be true
It is in the hands of God

God offers it to us
But we reject it
Choose the way of worldly pleasures
In which we are drifting

Like a raft on an endless sea…

DidiArtist, 26.04.2022

Not just dry theoretical knowledge

We have to eat and digest the knowledge
With our spiritual heart
Internalise it with the inner eye
Listen to it without outer ears
Experience it practically
Then the knowledge becomes
A real knowledge

Seeing, not with outer eyes
Is believing…
