Dawn of a new morning


 

 

In my heart lives
A world of peace
Harmony between people:
Noone is rich
Noone poor

Everyone exchanged
Greed for love
Money for selfless help
Ego for compassion
War for humanity

One language governs
Our beautiful planet:
Language of the heart
One God for all
No separation anymore

Ideologies merge together
To the welfare of mankind
Children grow up
Without fear
With ethic values

Hearts are touching everywhere
With respect towards each other
Borders are taken down
Freedom for everyone
Free breath, recovered nature

May this dream come true…

Anger and fury


 

 

Anger controls
Controls thoughts
Deeds, words
Sets on fire

Anger closes eyes
Sees things
In blindly rage
That are not there

In Anger – house in flames
Attempt to extinguish them
With burning oily thoughts, words
Throwing them wildly around
When pride feels offended

Intention to hurt, to react
To judge in conflicts – blindly, unfairly
Not knowing the one
Who should be hurt

Anger, a game: eye for eye
Tooth for tooth
Which should not have
Our participation

To stay calm is the answer
To be untouched, unaffected
Not willing to fall for the trap
In this game of mind

Opposite: When someone throws words
Let us send back: Thoughts
Of compassion, of sympathy
Kindness, good wishes, of love

Separation and Oneness


 

 

Politics is separation
From party to party
From man to man
While spirituality is:
The unity of man, Oneness

It is time for wise men to govern
With respect, humility, understanding
With honesty and compassion
For all people…

I see God in all


Today my heart is overflowing
With love and tears for everyone
I feel the deep connection
From man to man
From heart to heart
A music of the spheres
Between God and man
Between Creator and creation

Today my heart is overflowing
A symphony of love
A flow of tears
Golden water pearls running
Down from my cheeks
Feeling one with all
Embracing the universe
A divine kiss into my heart

My heart is dancing…

Crazy World


 

 

Many people pray, meditate
Need witnesses
Perform a show and pose
On public stages
Making themselves important
In front of others and God

Ripping away their masks
They show their true face
React with foaming rage
Then where is their love
For their neighbour, for God?
The curtain falls, they are exposed

Fools flock around the head fool
Whatever he does
Is welcomed, easily forgotten
He who cries out loudly
Attracts the masses
In the market of the world

The world cries for improvement
But where are those
Who are true to themselves?
Where are they?
Rising from the dark night
To prepare a new world…?

Everything belongs to God


 

 

When we belong to God
Then all things belong to Him
Which “belong” to us

Even our body, mind and soul
Belongs to Him
Is part of His creation

As He is One
And nothing exists
Without Him

So we are just administrators
Of everything He has given us:
Lent life

So we are and are not
At the same time
Depending on our point of view…

Should not we then
Become more humble?
Instead of saying: “I” and “mine”?…

Poison of the mind


 

 

Sometimes we are like snakes
Injecting our poison
Into the heart of other people

Sometimes we are like scorpions
Directing our sting towards ourselves
To punish ourselves and others

Neither this or that is a solution
We should rise above it
And free us from the poison of our mind…

How? – Through love, honesty, Oneness, and non-violence

Coronavirus: An appeal to Humanity


 

 

Let us all stand together
Overcoming differences through our heart
Whether rich or poor
No matter what colour we are
What religion we belong to
What country we come from

This virus affects us all
No one is spared
Spreads fear and terror everywhere
But it can unite us
Make us conscious: We are all one
Are all humans, a big family

This virus gives us the understanding
That nothing is certain
That everything changes
What is today is different tomorrow
But it can wake us up:
To treat each other as human beings

Let us conquer terror and fear
Walking in humanity and respect
Help each other, make sacrifices
Coming together from man to man
Anchoring love as the strongest force
And hold us from heart to heart

In the end, we all can come out as winners
When we have learned our lesson:
We all are human beings, no better, no worse
Just a big human family

Silent prayer


 

 

Mouth is quick
But heart not able
To follow
To put tongue
In hand

Oh my Creator
Let my thoughts be water
And words be sun
To be flower of life
In Your garden

Not a reflection
From a reflection
But living truth
True life

Let my mouth be silent
And voices rinse from heart
That all flows along
Your will, Your love…

Marriage of head and heart


 

 

When our head says: go
But our heart says: stop
Where does it lead us to? –
Towards insecurity and doubts

When our heart says: go
But our head says: stop
Where does it lead us to? –
Towards insecurity and doubts

When heart and head get married
There is a bondage of unity and oneness
Where does it lead us to?
Towards happiness…

A clear Yes, a clear No…

Thoughts in isolated times


 

 

In times of isolation
We are aware:
Friends are important
Just as relatives and men

People around us
Infecting our hearts
With feelings range
From day to night

They give us light
Even in darkness
Are near in our lives
Present in reality

In isolation, only memories remain
Life that withdrew in the past
To make us think:
We all need each other

How precious every person is
To give us life at our side
To make our presence alive
With his or her presence…

Essence of unity


 

 

No matter what skin colour we have
No matter which country we belong to
No matter what our creed, religion is
– We are are all human beings

No matter where we live
We live under the same sun
We breathe the same air
Live on the same planet

No matter how we leave, come into this world
We all have come, we all have to go
Whether rich or poor
The same way

No matter what we do, think or speak:
All is subject to the same law:
Action and reaction
Cause and effect

Good reflects good
Bad mirrors bad

Noone is better or higher
We all are in the same school of life…

We are a united society – MANKIND
And no mind can ignore or separate it…

Repressed


 

 

Easily we would like to repress the bad deeds
Which we have committed countless of times
Not even regretted them
Placing them into the unconscious
Just so not to make us remember them…

Selfishness has no hope


 

 

He can do nothing but stir up hatred
Separating people from each other
He boasts, is in love with himself
Defends himself with mockery and poison
In his words and gestures

He is a lout, knows no manners
Makes a mockery of himself all over the world
He cannot control himself
Entirely, he is an egoist
Knows only his own person

Are we blind not to see that?

He is ignorant, does not know what he is doing

Selfishness has no hope…

I feel sorry for such a person who is so blind

Seasons of love


 

 

Eyes touch in the meeting
Spring in the air
Hearts are beating
Ready to pair

Sleeping feelings arise
Carefully, tender, stretching
From snow and ice
Sun-light catching

Breathing the summer wind
Gently wafting through the hair
Leaving a beautiful tint
Of love in the air

Somersaults in feelings
With hay odour around
Old wounds are healing
In light and sound

Farewell of storm and heat
Of buzzing life and noise
To harvest ready seed
Where autumn gives a choice

Past voices falling off like leaves
In coloured dress of patience
Love is growing, thrives
Has no masks nor agents

Hearts calmly beating
In winter silence covered
Send from depth a greeting
Where nothing can be suffered

Love is always present
Never dies in time
It is an endless present
A light of cosmic shine

Borrowed Happiness


 

 

Every possession only possesses us…
Embedded in our ego, mind
Imprisons, steals our attention
In the focus of worldly pleasures
To make us believe
We are the owner
Own, possessing things
Identified with them
Distracted for one reason…

Who is the real owner?…

Virus of Love


 

 

May a virus enter the world
That does not spread fear and terror
But transmits love and understanding
From heart to heart
Is enriched with consciousness
Does not separate people
But unites them
Is a transmitter of cordiality
Kindness and happiness
Connecting our hearts
To remind us:
We all are one…

Habits


 


 

Follow us
At every turn
Like programmed
In our steps

So we follow them
Obey their “suggestions”
Repeatingly
Hardly look beyond

Habits are made of steel
Good or bad ones
Not easy to change
Are platforms of the mind

Requires iron discipline
To open new ways
Ways of love and light
A step to our inner sight

True Love


 

 

True love is not a business
True love has no expectations
True love shares and gives
True love exudes the fragrance of the heart
True love unites, embraces
True love sacrifices without equivalent
True love is full of humility
True love is full of compassion
True love is consciousness
True love is the light of God

Let us light this light in us
And share it with the whole world

Roses and Thorns


 

 

We love people
Like blooming roses
See their beauty,
Forget sometimes
They may have thorns

Soul is this beauty
Mind the thorns…

Window of the soul


 

 

From the depth of the heart
Rays of the inner sun
Find their ways through the eyes
A mirror of the heart
Shining brilliance
Radiating happiness
Eruptions of love
A pyroclastic flow of light
Between touching looks
A jump of the heart through the eyes
An opening of the inner entrance

The window of the soul…

Satsang, one of the three pillars of spirituality (part 2)


 

 

 

By Sant Kirpal Singh, in Oakton, Virginia, USA, 29 September, 1972

 
 
You see what sort of prayer is heard? As I told you the other day, (it is) the prayer which comes out of the heart and that is in unison with what you say by the word of mouth, and what you think. If the prayer comes, and the three (mind, intellect, and tongue) agree there, then that is a true prayer. When that prayer comes out, that Power who is also within us hears, “This child is after me.” Then He will catch you by the hand, “Well, child, tell me what you want.” So such a prayer is heard. Perhaps you have read the book “Prayer”. That gives you all these things.

Guru Ram Das says, “My prayer was heard. Thank God. I was under the impression that the philosopher’s stone would turn me into gold only; but strange enough, I met such a Guru who did not make me turn into gold but made me a philosopher’s stone itself. Now, whoever comes in our contact, they also turn into a philosopher’s stone.”

Every king wants his son to be a … what? Do you know? A king – not a minister. Every Guru wants anyone coming to Him to become a Guru. So Guru Ram Das said, “My prayer was heard and I got such a Guru who made me like this philosopher’s stone. Now, those who come in contact with me, they are also turning out to be philosopher’s stones.” He further says, “Strange enough, that qualification spoken of about the philosopher’s stone is that if any metal comes in contact with that it is turned into gold.” He says, “I was not the metal; I was the rust! Still worse. And, even then, I was made into the philosopher’s stone.” That bespeaks of the beauty of what he became after meeting the Guru. So the meeting or having the company of such a man is called Satsang.

The first Satsang you get inside – first class. Another Satsang is coming in contact with suchlike people who have got first-hand contact with God. What do you want? That’s the point. Do you want God? Or do you want worldly things? This is to be decided. If you have got true desire, yearning, to know God, then God will make arrangement to bring you in contact somewhere where He is manifest, where He is the mouthpiece of God, and He will enable you to contact God who is within your own self already.

Guru Ram Das says, “What is the world after?” In the world, what do you find? We find (that we pray), “O God, give us higher planes, heavens!” Some say, “(Give us) all enjoyments of the world hereafter” or “the enjoyments of this world”. When you pray, what do you pray for? For these worldly things or for your children, or your possessions, or your position, or that you may have enjoyments in the life after death? Generally this is what people pray for. Guru Ram Das says, “I have not prayed for that.” They (people) get that for which they have truly prayed. They get it! Guru Ram Das says, “I wanted only Him and Him alone, and I got such a Guru which has not turned me into gold but made me a philosopher’s stone itself.” Now, those who are really after God, these (other) things don’t appeal to them, you see. They simply want a glimpse of Him.

It is said that Lord Krishna once stayed away from a group of his followers, who were called “gopis”, for some time. Those who wanted his company always, who could not live without his company, they cried. They were feeling a very strong yearning, a very strong separation, and could not live without him, away from him. So when he heard about their state of affairs, whatever they were undergoing, he sent one devotee of his to give them some consolation: “Look here, the word Krishna comes from the root ‘kiru’, ‘kiri’. ‘Kiri’ means (the one) who is nearest to your soul – that is God. God resides in you. Why are you crying?” So that devotee went to see them and explained, and gave them all kinds of quotations from the scriptures, this and that: “God resides in you. Why are you crying?” They simply replied, “Look here, friend, what you say is alright: ‘He is the very soul of our souls, He resides in our body, He is our controlling Power in the body, He is so near that He is nearer than the hands and the feet.’ But tell us, for the eyes that are yearning to have a glimpse of Him, what is the remedy?”
