What is love?

Love is not a toy
Love is not a sentimental affair
Love does not change
Love is not a barter
Love does not expect
Love does not take
Love does not demand
Love is not for sale
Love knows only giving
Love does not leave
Love stays
Love sacrifices
Love is oneness
Love serves
Love surrenders
Love is home

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…

Worldly love

Love is not a piece of clothing
That one can change

However, in the world we see everywhere
Cabins to change dresses…

Path of the light

Just as the rays of the sun have their source in the sun
So darkness has its source in human abysses

Good and evil rest in us equally
Daily we commute on this bridge

Dark thoughts come with hate
Light thoughts with love

Our life is a rollercoaster
Of shadow and light

We live in the jungle
Of actions and reactions

Are a plaything of our own choices
Which are cast like a mirror image

When following the light
We are in the light

The darkness does not know…

DidiArtist, 18.09.2021

We are blind towards ourselves

Would we see the mistakes we make
How many times a day would we have to apologise

Would we see why we do or say something
We would see our selfish motives

Would we see how we treat other people
Our pride in ourselves would leave us

Would we see how we treat ourselves
Our theatre towards ourselves would end

Would we see how we struggle to gain advantages
Our self-respect would be at rock bottom

Would we see what we are doing with our lives
Would we be ashamed to the core

Would we see where our attention goes
We would perceive wasted time

Would we see the meaning of our life
We would become a different person….

True love – quote by Sant Kirpal Singh

“What kind of love is it that exists today and is over tomorrow, where you love one person today and the next tomorrow? Love is one. What changes is not love. And the love that is real, like no other, the soul receives through (inner) experience, this love always remains unchanged.”

Sant Kirpal Singh

Oneness lies in the heart

The heart of every human being
Is not yellow, red, black or white
It transcends all the boundaries of the world
Is a religion of love
A language of understanding
That unites all hearts
Into one unity, oneness

So let our hearts speak…

DidiArtist, 07.09.2021

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…

DidiArtist, 04.07.2021

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….

DidiArtist, 15.07.2021

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

Hidden motives

Often we say or do things
Without knowing the real reason
In the foreground we keep up appearances
But if we scratch the surface
We come across the spring water of truth:
A thin voice that tells
The real reason for our actions and words
Which we often hide
Do not even want to hear
When we know it
We are horrified
Shocked at ourselves
Ashamed of our own ego
That appears “shining”
Conceals in motives
Behind actions and words
Not as innocent as we thought

Man know thyself…

DidiArtist, 30.06.2021

Forgive and forget

We all have mistakes and weaknesses in us
We do bad and good things
Nobody is perfectly good
No one is perfectly bad

Life shows us the direction
Though we may have to go through many chambers
That are painful and unpleasant
We are all in the process of becoming, in the making

Let’s not pigeonhole any human being
To judge, to condemn him as he is at the moment
For time and tests of life will change him
Like the waves of the sea breaking at the shore to form the rock

God always gives us new chances
To learn from mistakes, to become a real man
That’s how we should treat each other
Always giving us new chances

That is true forgiveness and forgetting…

For the sake of God’s love – by Sant Kirpal Singh

 

 

For the sake of God’s love, we love all people. We must love them without exception. If you do not love all people and claim to love God’s power, you are lying, you are not being true to yourself. He who is imbued with the color of the Master, the color of love, knows no hatred, he hates no one. He loves all people, regardless of what these people think and what their deeds and actions are. He knows: “My Father is in each one of us.” He sees that the Father dwells in everyone, so he loves everyone from the depths of his heart, not outwardly. What he says is free of duality. His words are full of meaning.

Sant Kirpal Singh

 
 

No true life

 

 

On the outside we live
Yet inside we are dead…

Blind to ourselves

Many of us do not even notice
When our behavior
Through words, gestures and deeds
Hurt the feelings of others

In such a way we are blind to ourselves…

Unlimited Love

True love goes beyond the body
It carries its roots into all living beings
Is rooted, connected with everything

The time will come

 

 

The time will come
Where smoking and drugs will be frowned upon
When animal food will no longer be eaten
Death will no longer make the body a grave

The time will come
Where lust for power will be a thing of the past
Where egoistic systems disintegrate
Where unconscious people no longer rule

The time will come
Where people appreciate and respect each other
Where violence and sex glorification end
No longer have a place in society

The time will come
Where people understand, help each other
Where money and titles no longer matter
Replaced by honesty and generosity

The time will come
Where we look back on ourselves shaking our heads
Where unity lives, is understood
As brother and sister in the One….

The time will come
Where humanity comes of age…

Compassion and Love

 

 

A bad person sees
Only himself in the reflection
As an expression of his ego

A good person sees
Himself and others in the reflection
As an expression of pride

A person without ego and pride sees
Only the others in the reflection
As an expression of compassion and love

Love and Hate

 

 

Love unites
Hate divides

Blessed are the pure in heart

 

 

We say that we love God
But we do not even obey all his commandments
Are not willing to lay down our dirt within us
Are not even aware of our dirt

Where is he who is pure in heart….?

If we do not even lay down our dirt here,
So we think we can lay it down in “heaven”?

A great self-deception…

God helps those who help themselves….

When we take a step forward towards God
God will approach us with a thousand steps

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

Ghandi: “If you wish to see a change in the world, be the change…”

“Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they shall see God.” – (Matthew 5:8)

True Prayer

 

 

True prayers do not need approval from others
They come silently and sincerely from the heart
Are not pinned to one’s own breast
Like an order
They need no witnesses, no emphasis
Are selfless, addressed directly to God
Are neither materialistic nor selfish
Are full of compassion for others
Without attracting attention…

DidiArtist, 27.04.2021

 
 

Facing the consequences

 
power and control
 

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 battle
At the end there is a reckoning
The path is drawn…

Beyond questions and answers

 

 

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…

Time for Self-Introspection

 

 

Many questions come
Addressed to ourselves:
How has my life been so far?
What have I done wrong?
What can I improve in the future?

So much dirt in my thoughts
Garbage in words and deeds
Pyramid top of a now and here
Time to take stock
Who I was, who I am

How many people have I hurt
Including myself?
In the hamster wheel of equal deeds
Bad habits?
Shame on myself

Every thought, every word, every action
Has a heavyweight
When they hurt
It’s banging against the walls
Of one’s own heart

The scale shows
Where we stand
Honesty and confession may help
To cleanse us from dirt
To become a better person…

Time to bring about the change in us…
