Love of heart and mind


 

 

Love that passes away
Is the love of the mind
Love that stays forever
Is the love of the heart

Touched by Eternity


 

 

In deep silence
Space opens up
Feels like a dream
It pulls me out of my body
And I understand:
I am not the body

In deep silence
My spirit leaves this world
Moves upwards
Into a new world
Where God composes life
Let me live as a music note

In deep silence
Awakened from a dream
In a new dimension
Where eternity is my home
Love hugs me
Touched by light and bliss

In deep silence
Gently kidnapped
Into divine music
I present to you
My God, my heart
Give back what is Yours

Rise in divine light and sound…

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

 
 

Mind – Intellect – Ego — by Sant Kirpal Singh


 
 

 
 
The mind by itself is not conscious. It is the consciousness of the soul that the mind reflects. Anyone whose soul is under the mind’s influence and control becomes an image of the mind, for he forgets his true self. We call this ego or I-hood for one thinks, “I am everything”. God plus mind is man and man minus mind is God.

In the temple of God (the body), the mind drags us downward, away from the truth. It is because of the mind that we cannot partake of that which is inside us. It drags us down like a weight of iron. In turn, the senses are dragging the mind, and the pleasures of the world are dragging the senses. If the attention withdraws from outer environments, leave the senses and calms the mind, then only does it realize that it is soul. Our mind is the barrier between soul and God.
 
 

Too simple to believe


 

 

The truth is sometimes so simple
That man does not believe in it…

Social activities in Kirpal Sagar


Dear friends,

Today I would like to give some information about social activities in Kirpal Sagar.

Selfless help for needy and ill people are a way of keeping distance to one’s own ego,
if there is no self-pride involved in it.

From heart to heart
Didi

Kirpal Charitable Hospital

Sant Kirpal Singh whole-heartedly wished to provide help to those people who cannot afford medical care. Thus the hospital became the first facility within the Project taking up its function in 1983.

Various treatments are applied, such as allopathic, homeopathic, and ayurvedic therapies.

Poor people receive free medical treatment and medicine at the hospital. Presently the majority of the patients are treated as outpatients.

The accomplishment of the hospital up to 50 beds with departments of general medicine, pediatric, gynecology, obstetrics, ophthalmology, dialysis center and surgery is under construction.

Furthermore, ambulances reach out to remote villages at central gathering points, such as schools, to provide medical care for people who otherwise would not have a chance to see a doctor. From time to time external eye specialists come to Kirpal Sagar to perform eye operations.

A dentist’s practice at the hospital provides dental care for the people of the neighbouring area and also for the students of the Kirpal Sagar Academy.

Students of the future Medical College will perform their practical training within the hospital. An international student exchange is also planned.

Medical Care

From the very beginning of the Kirpal Sagar project, humanitarian help has been provided to the people of the surroundings. Due to the weak infrastructure of this rural area it is very difficult to get medical treatment, especially for the needy.

Medical camps provided help for patients from the near by villages before the “Kirpal Charitable Hospital” eventually took up its function in 1983 as the first facility within the Project.

Meanwhile a large Hospital complex was constructed with departments of general medicine, pediatric, gynecology, obstetrics, ophthalmology, dialysis centre and surgery.

Disadvantaged people obtain free distribution of medicine and medical care irrespective of caste, colour and creed.

Many volunteers from different countries support the project and some medicine firms in Germany and Switzerland are donating medicines.

 

Wheel-chairs for disabled people

Selfless service

To serve the poor and the needy is the true selfless service. If you give food to the hungry, you will never feel hungry. If you give water to the thirsty, you will never feel thirsty. How true is the prayer of the meek and unwanted and accursed is the life of him who ignores, and how great and broat-hearted is the one who works selflessly and gives head and heart to overcome the miseries of others. By holding on the treasures of virtues he becomes actionless. So long as one knows not the miseries of others, he knows not the very secret to overcome his own miseries. Wise persons tell us that it is vain to ask for pleasures and shun from pains. More one does, more one feels happy. This is what Sant Kirpal Singh ever felt.

Help for Self-Help
Job-training

At Surajpur a stitching and sewing school was opened in April 2005, there sewing and needle work courses are offered to enable women to earn their own living. Also, a training for nurses is planned for the future.

Untrained workers can undergo a job-training in the workshops at Kirpal Sagar, which also provide jobs for people with disabilities.

Women empowerment

Since the year 2008 seminaries for women empowerment are organized by the B.ed.College at Kirpal Sagar.

 

Marriages arranged in Kirpal Sagar for needy and poor people

Marriages

In the Indian culture, marriage plays an important role but wedding ceremonies are very expensive. Consequently, Unity of Man helps poor families by arranging the wedding and the furnishings for the couples to give them a good start in their family life. The marriage ceremonies are celebrated according to the religious belief of the couples. The newly married couples receive basic equipments needed for a new household: a fully equipped bedroom, furniture for a living-room, kitchen utensils as well as clothes and watches, everything sponsored by Unity of Man.

Disaster relief

Further help is supplied in case of disasters. During the big flood in 2010, two truckloads with emergency supplies were sent to the city of Leh, Ladakh.

Since Kirpal Sagar has its own water supply, big water tanks are put up in neighbouring towns during a big drought, to supply people passing by with drinking water.

The size and variety of the now existing facilities enable to react flexibly in emergency situations. In the home for the elderly for example orphaned children could be accommodated together with their grandfather.

No one can be said to have been born for himself alone, for none can be an island unto himself. To serve the needy, sick and starving, is also a sideline, more effective than mere preaching.
Sant Kirpal Singh

Compensatory Satisfaction


 
 

 
 

Lack of Determination


 

 

Whoever has his chair between two camps
Will neither know the one place
Nor the other one properly

He sits on the chair of indecision
Is neither here nor there at home…

Decision taken


 

 

A convinced person is bound
To his own conviction
Is rather choiceless

It may be good, it may be bad
However, often he is unable to listen…

Love for All


 

 

I am not a Christian, Muslim, Hindu,
Or Buddhist, Sikh, Taoist in particular
Nor do I represent any other religion
Isolated from the others
To separate me from other people
I am unity, belonging to the whole
The boat we all sit in
I am a Christian, Muslim, Hindu,
Buddhist, Sikh, Taoist
And other creeds at the same time
For we are all children
Of the One God
And not split into this and that
We are all this boat in Him

So let us remain in our respective religion
Become a true Christian, a true Moslem, a true Hindu
A true Buddhist, a true Sikh, a true Taoist, etc.
In other words: to become a true man
To rise above separation, dogmatism, fanatism
And live in Oneness and Unity with the One
Then all fights will cease and vanish
Love and respect will increase
And right understanding will grow
Among all people and peoples
To understand we are all One in Him

True love is to love His whole creation
Is service to man, service to God
Helping each other…

Because He is undivided love –
How can we separate this love into fragments…
Even our sun gives sunshine to everyone…

The perennial nagger


 

 

His characteristics:
He knows everything better
Criticizes everything
Knows an answer to all questions
Speaks ill of others
To take a bath in the limelight
His hobbies:
He judges and condemns

Spares himself
Without nagging
Because he is not aware
Of himself and his doings

May he find the road of life
In humbleness and respect…

DidiArtist, 20.10.2019

 

Experiences infuse consciousness


 

 

We must have fallen down first
Before we know what pain means
But often it’s too late
To repair a situation

Next time we may do better

Everyone must learn from own mistakes…

DidiArtist, 19.10.2019

 

Self-cheating


We just want to hear
What we like
Any truth that is contrary to us
We sweep under the carpet

Are we afraid
That our innermost is discovered?

Are we anxious
That the truth harms others?

Are we frightened
That we lose appreciation?

Are we scared
That our ego is losing something?

It is an illusory world
That we are building
Leading us to dependency
On the opinions of others…

How much honesty towards ourselves do we have?…

DidiArtist, 20.10.2019

 

We have forgotten what we really are


We’re not the body
Not man, not woman
Not old, not young
Are a smile of the heart
Are soul, drops of light
In the sea of light

Move the body
Like a puppet
Are the vital force
In this house
Are space-ships
Hurrying through the time

We are consciousness
Alive in the moment
Are eternal in the being
Wandering through illusions
Veils of dual worlds
Are cosmic breath

Breathe eternity…

DidiArtist, 19.10.2019

 

Playground of give and take


Loaded with presents and debts
Man lands in the market world
Bazaar of give and take
Old meets old
Giving hands
Open hands
In exchange
Known faces appear
Join the market
Endless rows of stands
To sell and buy
To lose and find
Business between man and man

Many get “richer”
Become more and more overloaded
Create new debts
While few empty their bags
Pay their bills
Gain rich emptiness
Close old wounds
Go Home smilingly
With empty hands…

Right Understanding – by Sant Kirpal Singh (part 6)


 
 

 
 

Self-introspection


 

 

If we don’t look at ourselves in the mirror
To find the original reflection of it
Then we cannot see us either
Do not know who we are
What we are
Where we come from
Where we have to go…

Then the purpose of life
Is covered by our ignorance…

Man know thyself…

DidiArtist, 15.10.2019

 
 

We are Light


 

 

At the speed of light
Time stands still
There, eternity lives

Slowly we time-travel
Growing old
As a lightless body

Moving in space
Feel the time passing
Hidden eternity within

Yet we are not bodies
Are pure light
Bound in time and space

Are vessels, wandering life
That opens up spaces, dreams
To see the world as blinds

Spirit rests in eternity
Not in external happiness
It travels as a light within

Where the speed of light is
There lives the moment
Home of eternal light…

DidiArtist, 18.05.2020

 
 

Oneness is the Goal


 

 

Many roads lead to that one way
Differences flow into equality
Merge into oneness

Where they touch each other
The world is parting
Between death and life

Like an hourglass through time and space
From illusion to reality…

DidiArtist, 17.05.2020

 

Cry of my heart


 

 

My words are a cry
Of my heart
People, brothers, and sisters
Let’s not seek the fight
Battle among one another
Let us meet in kindness
With compassion and love
Let us free ourselves from hate
Of being better, of craving for power
To find each other in peace
Let our hearts speak
Not our mind

People, brothers, sisters
Let’s replace self-interest.
To help each other
Bury prejudices
Serving each other selflessly
Overcoming pride and ego
Finding our own mistakes
Not those of the others
To make us better
To be higher
To create envy
But to create harmony
Togetherness, not selfishness

People, dear brothers, sisters
We’re all one
No-one’s better, nor worse
In our hearts we are all equal
Let’s stop waging war
Because every war
Is a war against ourselves
Let our hearts speak
Not our mind…

This path begins
By ourselves – individually:
The way of love and generosity…

Let us begin – not tomorrow, NOW…

Upside down


 

 

Everything seems to be upside down
Is that why we’re looking
At the wrong end?

Right Understanding – by Sant Kirpal Singh (part 5)


 
 

 

 
 

Right understanding badly needed


 

 

Out of misunderstanding
Lack of understanding
The whole world is on fire

Misunderstanding and ignorance
Lead to hate and separation
Is an expression of our ego

May love and benevolence
Be the engine of our actions

May God bless everyone
With right understanding

The Third Eye – By Sant Kirpal Singh Ji


 
 

 

The third eye

The Third Eye, Shiv Netra, Divya Chakshu, Tisra Til, Brahmrendra, or Single Eye must be opened to see the Light of God. It opens when the sensory currents are withdrawn and gathered up to the seat of the soul at the eye focus behind and between the two eyebrows. Then one experiences the mysteries of the Beyond into which a Master-soul initiates a disciple during his lifetime. He gives a first-hand inner experience of conscious contact with the holy Naam -the Divine Light and the holy Sound-Current (Holy Ghost), as the lowest expression of the Divinity within. The light of the body is the eye, “if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light…”.

Sant Kirpal Singh

 
 

The problem is that nobody really knows where the Single Eye or Third Eye is


 
 

 

The problem is, that nowadays all people say: “Here is the seat of the soul, meditate over here!” – between and behind the two eye-brows. But it is a big problem that nobody really knows where the seat of the soul or the Single Eye is. What happens at the time of death? Our attention, the outer expression of the soul or consciousness, withdraws from the lower extremities, and transcending the throat ganglion, it goes to the root of the two eye-brows. From there it takes upward-trend, then it takes inward-trend, and where the eyes are crossing, there is the seat of the soul. To say, “Here is the seat of the soul” is easy, but to reach there and to locate it there is very difficult, because just very close to the seat of the soul, a little bit below, there is the seat of the mind and below there is the seat of the intellect.

What do most people do when they meditate? First, they have to overcome the intellect. Maybe they can overcome it, but they cannot overcome the mind. When we create a wish, our mind at once identifies with it. Mind in this physical body is astral.

Everyone has wishes upon wishes, and our mind identifies with them. So when we create a wish to see something, at once our mind identifies with it and will give us the light over there. Mind will show the light at once, whereas the experience taught by Christ and all the competent Masters starts from the darkness and then leads to the holy light.

Dr. Harbhajan Singh

 
 

Thoughts move


 

 

Thoughts move the world
Influence our now
As we are all connected
Not separated
Because we are all
A collective being
One consciousness…

Big Bang of Life


 

 

In deep silence
Divine Eternity
Space and time
Collapse at
The Event Horizon
Are merged
Into a zero point:
Black hole
Big bang of life
Divine creation
Birth of spirit and being
Scattered in all universes
Consciousness – everywhere
