Ill mind

As long as our mind rules
Over our soul
It causes destruction
Is like a wildfire
Untamed, uncontrolled

Mind fights against mind
Separates instead unites
Leads wars, is selfish
Is greedy, egoistic
Wants power, wants money
All wishes to be fulfilled

Mind is self-destructive
Far from love and respect
Is full of disharmony
Able to change feelings
From one second to the other
Is only the shadow
Of our soul

Mind is a monster
Hidden in us
As long uncontrolled
Policy is only born
From our mind
It only searches
For own advantages

Consciousness means
To be aware of our thoughts
Aware of our doings
To know the consequences ahead
To know where it leads to
When following the voice
Of our mind

Mind is the illness in us
The devil in us
If it is tamed
It can be a good servant
To support us
As a tool of the soul

Let us make the step
Out of this fire…

Own dialogue

How often do we mix up?
Mind with soul
Love with lust
Truth with half-truth
Selflessness with obstinacy
Wholeness with particularity

Should we not question ourselves
To get to know ourselves better?…

True religion is universal love and remembrance of God

In the light of truth

 

 

Truth does not hide
Is transparent for all
Shines like the sun
Is love and light

Geometric Being

 

 

Building elements of all shapes
Puzzle of circles
Angles, curves, corners
On this side and beyond
A symbiosis of all and nothing

Life within limits, borders
Fences around space and time
Perfect construction
Living geometry
Kaleidoscopic structures

Everything fits together
The cube, the rectangle
The triangle, trapeze
Lines that draw themselves
Components of life

Designed from eternity
A flux of being, non-being
Breathing change
Specific interspaces
Yet cohesive

Holography of flowing geometry…

A projected world

The visible and invisible world
Is something becoming in being
A being in the becoming

Our perception realizes
The being, the reality
A reversed projection…

DidiArtist, 02.11.2019

Our mind controls

Our mind controls

As long as our mind controls world and soul
There will be no peace in the world

This mind is the cause of hatred and violence
For the striving for power
The greed for money
Wealth and lust

It moves
Between anger and joy
It leads to ego and self-opinionatedness
Wears a cloak
Full of arrogance and self-pride
It is the source of darkness
In human abysses

Let us analyze it
And take more than just a glimpse
Then, our understanding will begin…

Shadow and Reality

 

 

We are the shadow
A hidden reality
A world of shadows
Reflection
Of a mystical being…

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…

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

DidiArtist, 30.10.2019

 
 

Observe and Understand

Not like being involved
To see what we think and do
From a distance
Beyond ourselves
As watchers from above

To understand the connection
With all and everything
Actions and reactions
Where it leads us

To understand ahead
The consequence
To avoid wrong ways
Within the silence of non-thinking

An understanding deep down in our hearts
Consciousness that leads us
Like a shining star
Above the ocean of life

Intelligent Design

 

 

Life and everything else moves
On a firm foundation…

No automatic prayer

Mostly our prayers are wishes
We want this and that
For ourselves and others

Have we forgotten
That God knows our hearts?

If we surrender to Him
Through and through
He takes seat in us

He becomes the Doer in us
While our ego slowly disappears

However, we play with the world
Are not really honest towards ourselves
Accept only what we want

He lives in us
And we live in Him

Our prayers become thoughtless
Connected with Him and wishless
Based on trust and surrender

A matter from heart to heart…

DidiArtist, 07.09.2022

Love is not for sale

Love does not prove itself
By complying with wishes
Expectations, conditions, and demands
Of friends, relatives, and acquaintances
For love is not a document of proof
It proves itself without having to prove it
It is unconditional, without expectations
Is not a means to an end
Is not a business
Cannot be bought
Nor earned through unpaid bills

Love is like light:
It radiates from heart to heart
Illuminates thoughts, words, and deeds…

Broken mirror

We can see ourselves in the mirror
Only when it is complete
We cannot see ourselves
Because the mirror is broken
Ego breaks it
Into smaller and smaller fragments
We lose ourselves in broken pieces
Like our attention
Which also splinters in all directions
Our senses pull us from fracture to fracture
We have lost unity

Only a mirror of unity
Lets us recognise ourselves…

Unity is love
Is soul and humanity

Unity is Oneness…

Living without a goal

We build our future on sand
And pretend it’s for eternity
But eternity needs a different present
Another foundation

What is it?…

DidiArtist, 02.09.2022

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…

Reincarnation and Eternity

Not reincarnation is the goal
But the eternity…

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…

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…
