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….

Gates of Wisdom

Life contains many ways
At every moment they fork
Shower us with tests

Once passed
New gates open
Gates of wisdom

They become part of our lives
Create new challenges
Search for answers

Situations come and go
Entangle us in them
Challenge us to untie the knot

Every moment dies and lives
Demanding understanding
For practical experience

Opens invisible gates
That want to be crossed
Colour us in wisdom

He who knows himself
Knows the others

Because we all come from the same source…

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…

Discrimination – between Yes and No

 

 

We must learn to distinguish
Need to understand individual puzzle parts
They have to be disassembled
To assign them the right place

This is a walk
From Yes to No and from No to Yes
Transformation occurs from the center
Then distinction dissolves

In the end there is no friend, no enemy
No better, no worse
The center speaks: Love for all
Equality for everyone without differentiation

Because Everything is Nothing
And Nothing is Everything…

Lack of understanding

Man is like a child
Playing with the bomb…

What is consciousness?

Is consciousness perception?
Total range of our senses?
Knowledge of ourselves?
“Reality” at the level of the mind?

Is consciousness a flow in time and space?
Soul within a collective consciousness?
Stream of self in being and becoming?
Powerhouse of self-consciousness?

Is consciousness flowing life?
A mirror of itself?

Is consciousness light and love without words?
Bridge in the breach of duality?

Cogito ergo sum…

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…

Self-realization

One cannot observe oneself
If one does not stand above oneself
As long as one is locked in mind and ego
Has not reached his own Self

Only in freedom
In the silence and absence
Of mind, ego, and intellect
The soul knows its Self

DidiArtist, 31.07.2021

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

Wrong angle of view

That is why we do not understand certain things
Because we have the wrong point of view….

Ignorance and speculations

Many lies originate
From the foundation of ignorance
They spread like wild fire…

Silent observer of oneself

How big is our contribution
For the world – good or bad?
How many thoughts are bad of us
That make the world worse?
How many of them are good
To make it better?

We keep silent because we don’t know
Because we have an attitude of indifference
Because we let our thoughts run free
Spreading like fire uncontrolled

Every day we fill the world
With good and bad thoughts
Like infecting viruses
A battle of good and evil

Consciousness is being aware
About itself
Where our thoughts lead
What direction they take

When not knowing
We stumble, we fall
Hurt each other
Running after our own thoughts

They carry us from joy to sorrow
In the ups and downs of life
As resonance of all our thoughts
Of our words and deeds

One beat of a butterfly’s wings
Changes the whole world
A single thought as well…

DidiArtist, 01.07.2021

Prejudices

They exist because
Because we stand still in time
Not noticing the change
The development of a man
Not follow his cause
Or perceive that makes him
What he is…

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

 
 

Divine family

 

 

Divine family

Hate sows hate
Violence only violence
Hunger for power
Remains hungry
Hunger for money
Increases without an end
Dissatisfaction remains
A game without winners
A game of losers

Only love wins
It makes two into one
It unites
Sows compassion
Respect and understanding
Is an expression of oneness
Harmony among people

If everything is One
Then everything is connected with Oneness
Then each individual is
Brother and sister of the One
Is family in the lap of God

When enters this understanding
Into our heart
Into our mind
Into our head???

When does man stop playing war?
Stop his so-called “cleverness” and tactics?

We are all one family
One in the One…

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)

Led astray

 

 

We believe the more of here and there
In all directions of “spirituality”
The greater the “weight”
The better the “taste”, the “spices”
The deeper the realization
The more developed we are
On the “path of spirituality”

We mix everything in one pot
And wonder
Why we still suffer blindly
Without proper background knowledge
Proper understanding

It blinds our power of discrimination
Makes us walk thoughtlessly on thin ice
Because not everything is tolerable for us
Not every “spiritual ingredient”

We can even drown in this process
Without even knowing it
While stepping on dangerous ice

Eating wrong mushrooms
May cause dangerous consequences
Taking the wrong medicine
For body and spirit
Will have dramatic effects

Before we prepare a “spiritual diet”
We should know its “ingredients” very well.

Do we not blindly follow what is in fashion?
Such as countless types of yoga and meditation?
But in truth do not know where they lead us
To the purpose of our existence?

Who only knows the night,
Knows nothing of the light of the day
Everything is then limited within the range of the night

Are we not blind in a moonless night?

Beyond narrowmindedness

 

 

If we expand our horizons so far
That all people find room in it
All walls will fall…

Right Understanding – by Sant Kirpal Singh (part 1)

 

 

Right Understanding (part 1)
 
 

Truth and honesty

 

Devine play

 

When there is a grain of dust in honesty
It is no longer true and pure

Half-truths are not truthful…

Honesty and Awareness

 
 

 

We are not aware of all our mistakes,
How can we then be honest
Where mistakes stay hidden?

Honesty goes along with awareness…

How much blindness is still in us?…
