True and false love

Love that only wants to take is not love
Love only wants to give itself away, only gives
Love that is only concerned about itself is not love
Love sacrifices itself for others
Love that bears no responsibility is not love
Love is thoughtful, responsible
Love that says: I come first, is not love
Love is service to man
Love that expects something in return is not love
Love is selfless
Love is not business, not barter
Love is like the sun, it radiates kindness and warmth
Love that loves everyone is God’s love….

Injured pride

We are proud of what we know
Proud of what we have achieved
We boast with pride
Woe betide anyone who hurts that pride
We react hurt
We strike back
Without realising
That pride is a relative of our ego

When we put pride aside
We become humble
Begin to understand
What hurts us and why
Is a bitter medicine
To break through the armour of our pride

Are we ready for it?
Are we ready to look beyond ourselves?
Instead of clinging to pride?

False expectations

Praise is sometimes expressed
For reasons we neither expect nor see
The same is true when giving/receiving Likes

DidiArtist, 03.12.2021

Not honest towards oneself

We sometimes want to see ourselves differently
From what we really are
We put on a mask
And hide us from ourselves

We seek refuge in a world
That we have tailored for ourselves
Defend it, uphold it
Like a big lie…

Wrong understanding

Praise is sometimes expressed
For reasons we neither expect nor see
The same is true when we give Likes
There may be other motives behind…

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?

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….

DidiArtist, 03.12.2021

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…

Confirmed belief

A faith that only believes
Stands on feet of clay
Has its foundation in the assumption
Can lead astray
But a faith that sees, has experiences
Is a confirmed faith

May we have inner ears
To hear the inner divine music
May we have an inner eye
To behold the divine glory

Seeing is believing
Is a knowing belief…

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…

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

Life in darkness

Living with an error
Is like walking in the dark
You feel things
But you don’t know what they are
And so you start to speculate…

Chaos and collision

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

What is collision?
When chaos enters the society…

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)?

Lacking knowledge

Ignorance and half-truths become entrenched
Into error and false knowledge

How often are these half-truths sold as truth….

Right understanding, part 53 – by Sant Kirpal Singh

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?

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 ourselves and 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….

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…

Closed eyes

We close our eyes to ourselves
Thus do not know ourselves

An open inner eye
That is the meaning of spirituality…

Changing one’s own angle of view

We repeat our mistakes
Are spinning in circles
Like a hamster in a hamster wheel

When do we look at our mistakes
And not at those of others?…

A scale in listening

Not to listen
What other people have to say
Is wrong

To listen
What we have to say ourselves
Is wrong too

We need a blance in it…

Depending on the point of view…

Missing consciousness and honesty

One must first have recognized one’s own mistakes,
Only then one can start to change
However, how much blindness is in us
Not to recognize most of them…

Concealed lies

One is so ashamed of some deeds
That one represses them, denies them
Concealed behind lies…

On the level of the soul

We can see the world:
Physically, Chemically, Biochemically, morphologically
Matematically, Geometrically, Philosophically,
Quantum-Mechanically, Astronomically, Theologically…
Physically, Historically, Theoretically etc.
But everything is only one point of view
Interwoven with our perceiving senses

Let us see the world from within
Spiritually, metaphysically
On the level of the soul, beyond senses
Then we are free from all words
Free from duality and questions
For all questions and answers
Are contained in Oneness…
