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…

Good or evil

In extremely difficult situations (war)
Man reveals himself
Whether he is human or bestial
His strengths and weaknesses come to light
Goodness or abyss of his nature

Thoughts on the move

Thoughts have hands, feet
They pick up other thoughts
Walk over cliffs and precipices
Touching fire and water
Flying with the wind
Full of lust and anger
Multiply themselves on the fly
Heat each other up
Drown, burn, sink

Thoughts wander
Erupt, lose themselves
In search of stability
Capture themselves
In the labyrinth of mirrors
In the maelstrom of external impressions
They flee with the wind
As countless grains of sand
Never come to rest

Thoughts get lost – in themselves…

Excerpts from the Library exhibition in Kirpal Sagar -1-

 
 

 
 

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…

DidiArtist, 06.11.2019

 
 

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

We are ignorants

How many things do we think and do
Out of ignorance?

How many things do we falsify
Out of ignorance?

Ignorance is the cause
Of our ego and mind

The world is full of ignorants…

Shadow and Reality

 

 

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

DidiArtist, 03.11.2019

 

Stormy thoughts

Thoughts have hands
They pick up other thoughts
Walk over cliffs and precipices
Touching fire and water
Flying with the wind
Full of lust and anger
Multiplied in their flight
Heat up, drown themselves
Burning, sinking

Thoughts wander
Erupt, lose themselves
Searching for inner balance
Capture themselves
In the mirror labyrinth
In the maelstrom of external impressions
Fleeing with the wind
As countless grains of sand
That never come to rest
A spectacle unparalleled

Thoughts seek silence
Without any thoughts

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

Too simple to believe

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

Disunity

The more opinions drift apart
The more hatred and controversy arise

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

 

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…

DidiArtist, 17.10.2019

 

Caught in the mirror

We mirror ourselves
In our thinking and doing
Throw at each other
Thoughts and deeds
Like in an abstract mirror
Reflecting, impacting

We sow and reap
From this labyrinth of mirrors
Are prisoners of our own deeds, thoughts
In the prison of cause and effect
Are like shadow plays
On the wall

When will we awake
From this unreal dream
Called life, reality?…

DidiArtist, 02.08.2022

Intelligence without heart

People of power only think
By not looking beyond the range
Of their own limited horizon

A foresight that we are all one
Does not occur in their thoughts
In their strategic planning games

They want to be smart
But have no head in their hearts…

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…

DidiArtist, 14.10.2019

 
 

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…

DidiArtist, 04.10.2018

 
 

Be aware before, not after…

 

 

Could we see in advance
All the bad things we do
The ripples of our actions
We would change immediately
Not to eat the inedible fruits
To have to harvest and eat them…

So let us think twice
Before we release a word or an action…

Transformation: Drop into Sea

 

 

I wish my I and ego dissolves
Like sugar in a glass of water
Becoming one with the Ocean
No longer separated in my mind

I wish I flew with the birds
Sing their songs of happiness
Across countries without borders
A flying spirit of love and light

I wish I rolled with the waves
Kiss the sand of beaches, shores
Go along in storms and calm waters
Feel all beings in the sea of life

I wish I went with the wind
Around the world, feel oneness
With all creatures
The beat of life

I wish I travelled through time and space
Say hello to galaxies, enfolding universes
Take a ride on sun beams
Hear the breath, the pulse of cosmos

I wish I dissolved in You
O my Lord, Beyond and Here
Merging as a drop
Back into Your Ocean of Life

At Your feet without ego, mind
Light that returns into light
Surrendered in Your Will
To be with You everywhere…

World in flames

 

 

Uncontrolled fire spreads
When tamed, it is a good servant

Our mind is like fire
Our soul should control, master it

The world is on fire…
Only the water of the soul
Can extinguish the flames…

At least the flames
Created by our own mind…

As long as our mind is on power
We burn in its fire…

Outside Shining – Inside Fouling

 

 

How many angles and corners are there in us
Where chaos and disorder reign
Where dirt accumulates
Dust is setting down?

How many impurities are in us
Which we have neglected
Falling into oblivion
Where no external soap helps?

On the outside nice and clean
Well-groomed appearance among witnesses
Inside without hygiene
There’ s no one watching

But inner dirt
Moves motives on the outside
Hidden, concealed
Determines our thoughts, actions.

Our internal residence
Like a mirror:
What is inside is outside
What is outside is inside

We should be dust and germ-free
That the inner dirt
Does not become external dirt
With the soap of innocence and honesty

We cannot hide from ourselves nor from God…

Animal or human

In war, the true character of a man is revealed
That of the instigator and the one who carries it out

Short-sightedness

The short-sightedness of man
Limited to a few moments
Is the reason for his/her fatal effects….
