Playground of give and take


 
 

 

Loaded with presents and debts
Man lands in the market world
Basar 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…

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?

DidiArtist, 11.10.2019

 
 

Knowledge and Ignorance


 

 

What we don’t know
We ignore
What we know
We sell as omniscient…

What we don’t know
We reject, compensate with know-it-all
Enveloped in our pride
An intellectual fight

With no light
Just tight in mind…

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

Positive and Negative Powers – by Sant Kirpal Singh


 
 

 
 
Nobody can ever see God-Absolute. God-in-expression called Word or Naam manifests in the form of Light and Sound Principle which can be seen and heard with the inner eyes and inner ears with the help and grace of a competent Master. He has a two-fold function; one that of Kal and the other that of Dayal. Mohammedans designate these by the words Shaitan and Rehman, while Zoroastrians use the term Aharman and Harmuzd. These may be called the negative and the positive powers, both aspects of the One Great and Undivided God.

The negative power, Kal, Shaitan, Aharman, represents the power that is going into expression, bringing all creation into being, and the other, Dayal, Rahman and Harmuzd (the Positive Power) represents the power of inversion, bringing the soul back to its source. These then are the centrifugal and centripetal powers working in all creation.

Mind is an agent of the negative power and always brings one into the outer world. On the other hand, the contact with the Divine Word within leads the soul back to God which is wordless or absolute. Though mind is activated by the soul, yet it has come to dominate it. Again, mind is further controlled by the senses or the outside faculties which in turn drag us into the field of sensual pleasures born out of attachments to sense objects without. Master tells us how to withdraw the soul current by means of concentration at the centre of our being and grants us contact with the Divine Word which is within and which is the way to God. Negative power keeps in control the creation in expression or manifestation. But once the soul comes in contact with the Divine Word, it is liberated from the bondage of mind and matter with the help and grace of the Master, and is freed from the grip of the negative power.

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…

Fights in the world


 

 

Everywhere we see fights
Brother against brother
Sister against siser
Family fights

Everywhere we see fights
People mark their rights
Fight for interests, religions
In thoughts, talks and actions

Parties are against parties
Political oponents, smarties
Groups against groups
Countries against countries

Cultures compare, measure, judge
Who is better who is worse
Attitude of arrogance, anti-humilation
Pride in fights

Where to find this evil behaviour?
In us, in each of us…
But mankind is one
Not yet done

Our fight should not be against others
Not against sisters and brothers
Each of us should fight
Own ego, mind – becoming love and light

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…

DidiArtist, 22.09.2019

 
 

Pride or primitivity?


 

 

As long as we threaten ourselves with weapons:
In thoughts, words, and deeds –
Until then, we can “proudly”
Call ourselves as primitive species…

The technique may be ready for us
But are we mature enough for it…?

Spiritually we are still underdeveloped
That is why we behave so primitively…

Positive and negative


 

 

Positivity: Implosion
Negativity: Explosion

Positivity: Way from many to One
Negativity: Way from one to many

Positivity: Unity
Negativity: Separation

Positivity: Unconditional love
Negativity: Conditioned “love”

Positivity: Consciousness, light
Negativity: Ignorance, darkness

Let us become the torchbearer
A beacon in this dark world…

Gravitation of fault


 

 

Guilt and fault are like hooks:
Once they are there
More guilt is thrown on them
Like coats

Problem of generalization…

God, an Ocean of All-Consciousness


 

 

God is described as the one supreme being, the unmanifest-manifested, the eternal verity, the conscious spirit pervading all forms that emanate from Him – He upholding all creation, but is immanent in every form.

God is nameless, absolute, but when He wished to become from one to many, His power came into expression. That power is known as Naam in the terms of the Masters. It is also known as Shabd, as Kalma, as Word, and other names. That power is the creator of all things, it is controlling all things.

God is an ocean of all consciousness. We are of the same essence as that of God: a drop of the ocean of all consciousness.

Sant Kirpal Singh

 
 

One Being – One Love – One Life


 

 

All is saturated
With Your Consciousness
In shades and grades
From the lowest to the highest
From the smallest to the largest

All Being is Your Consciousness
Everything has sound and colour
Everything rests in itself
Everything carries Your light
Everything is Your handwriting

Pure consciousness You are
Pure love, pure life
Your kingdom built with stones
Full of consciousness of any size, any kind
Conscious perfection

All is connected with everything
Nothing is separated
Flowing Consciousness through All Being
A Being of All and Nothing
Symphony of Light and Sound

Every atom, every particle
Is Your universe within us
Every sun, every star
Is Your colour, Your light
Every drop Your Ocean…

How Sant Kirpal Singh met His Master 7 years before He saw Him physically


Dear friends,

Today is the Birthday of my Master`s Master, Baba Sawan Singh. This time I want to share with the story how Sant Kirpal Singh met His Master.
Thank you for your attention.
Love and Oneness
Didi


Sant Kirpal Singh

 

 

 


Baba Sawan Singh

 

Sant Kirpal Singh reports from His own life:

I used to pray: “Oh God, I’m convinced that without one who knows You, nobody can reach You.” It is a practical matter of self-analysis. God cannot be known by the outgoing faculties, by the vital airs or by the intellect. It is a matter of seeing: whoever sees can make you see. “I know there’s a need – definitely: all scriptures say so. I’m quite convinced, but where am I to go? Suppose I go to somebody who has not met You – what will be my fate?” I used to pray like that. “If You could reveal Yourself to the old Saints” – sometimes there are stories like that – “why can’t You do it in my case? I am convinced, I’ve great regard for that need; but there are so many Masters – whom shall I select?” With this, my Master (Baba Sawan Singh) began to appear to me when I sat in meditation or when I was doing something. I thought perhaps it was Guru Nanak. He used to talk to me. In those days there was the First Great War, and my brother was on the Indian front along the Persian side. I used to traverse along with Him and went to those places, here, there and everywhere.
The Guru appears when the disciple is ready.

I was very fond of rivers, ponds, water. Even in my young life, I used to go and sit by the waterside or some river, the whole night through, in a calm and quiet place. The running water helps a little to concentrate. So this went on for some time. In the meantime, I was first at Peshawar, and then I was transferred to Nowshera station: a river runs by there. I used to sit by that riverside for hours. Then I came to Jhelum side. That is also by the riverside, and I sat there for hours on end. I was very fond of swimming, too. (Just enter the river: if you’re not afraid, nothing will happen; it’s only fear that kills you. If you simply shake your foot a little or move your hands a little, you won’t drown.)

In the meantime I was transferred to Lahore: that was also by the riverside. I passed my days there. There was also the river Beas: “Let me have a look at that!” One Sunday morning I left by train and detrained at Beas station. There was an old man there; he was the station master. I asked him which side the river flows. He was (Bua Das), a devotee of the Master: “Do you want to see the Master?” – “Does a Master live here?” – “Yes!” “Where?” – “On the riverside.” I told him, “I have two things now. I’ll enjoy the river scenery and also see the Master at the same time.” Then he directed me there. Master was sitting upstairs; He was taking His meal inside. I went out and sat outside. After half an hour or so, He came out. I was wonder-struck: He was the same man who had been appearing to me for seven years before, from 1917 to 1924. I paid homage to Him: “Why so late?” He said, “That was the most opportune time that you are to come.”

So this is how I met the Master. “The Guru appears when the chela (disciple) is ready” – even to the most skeptical mind. Perhaps none of you has been so sceptical as I was; I was afraid, you see, lest I go to somebody who had not met God; and my life would be spoiled.

When I went to Him, then – once or twice, every Sunday I used to go – He looked after me like a father looks after his son coming: “All right, arrange this room, bring this bedding”, this and that thing. I requested, “Well, Master, don’t You worry, I’m here, at Your feet.” – “All right, now, you’ll have to look after this Dera (Ashram); go on with it. Those who come, you’ll look after them.” These were the words He expressed, the very first time.

The next time there was initiation – this was early February – and all were sitting in initiation. Master said, “You sit inside.” I will come. He gave initiation there; I was inside, sitting in His room. This is how I was initiated! I was waiting for Him; perhaps He will call me. I was sitting inside. Then He returned. I asked Him, “Will you kindly initiate me?” – “Oh yes, surely.” What the mystery of life is – what is a man, what is a soul – was solved in little or no time.

A qualification of a Master is given as one who can give you some experience. Some say, “All right, go here; here are maps to show you the way; go by this road, or turn right, then left; this or that.” Sometimes you have to hunt for hours, and you do not find the way. But a Master is one who gives you some experience to start with, who can appear and remove the dark veil by giving a sitting; and you can testify that it is so. You are not to wait until after death or until after many years. He does not tell you, “All right, go on; you’ll have it in due course.” You’ll find that it is so with most of the teachers: “All right, do some regular meditation; some reaction from the past might help you.” But the competency of the Master lies in the fact that He is able and competent to give experience to the learned or the unlearned, to a man off the street.

It so happened that there was some controversy when our Master became a Master – I mean, took up the role of the Master. (He was a Master, but He took up the role of the Master.) When others asked, “Why, how can you become a Master?” He was very polite and very humble. He never liked to get into a controversy. After they kept pushing the point, He said, “All right. Catch some five or six people off the street, make them sit, and give them some experience. I will also catch some, and then we’ll see who can carry it out!” That’s all: to give the ultimate goal and what to do to reach it. So this is how I met my Master.

Generally, when people ask me, “What is Your date of birth?” I tell them, “I have three birthdays: first, when I was born in the flesh; second, when I met Him inside seven years before; and third, when I met Him physically.”

These are the gifts of God. I was very afraid because generally you’ll find that Masters simply tell you, “Go on reading scriptures.” That is right; that is the first step. But you cannot have the right import of the scriptures unless you meet somebody who has that experience: he alone is able to give you an experience, to give you the right understanding and the right import of the scriptures. Because, what are the scriptures? They are the fine records of the experiences that the Masters had in their lives. Then, perform one ritual or the other; that’s all right for the preparation of the ground. But seeing is something else: it only arises when you analyse yourself, when you rise above body-consciousness and you testify that there is Light. A Master is also defined as one who can make the Music of the Spheres audible. Who can give you Light and Music of the Spheres? What are these two? These are the two aspects of the God-into-expression Power. God has no equal, no father, no mother – nothing of the sort. Only He who is Word personified can give you the experience of that Power, the very first day. Even the blind man has that inner eye, called the single eye. Scriptures tell us, “If thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light … If you shut the doors of the temple of the body, you’ll see the light of heaven.” That is called the third eye, or shiv netra; there are so many names for it. These are the basic teachings that give you the ultimate contact with that reality. Philosophies deal with theories. This is what is called mysticism: it gives you a contact with reality – that reality which came into expression. Psychology works at the level of the intellect. This does not work at the level of the intellect; it works only when you are intellectually stilled. In psychology and philosophy you have two: a subject and an object. And in mysticism, there is no duality: you have direct contact with the God-into-expression Power. The more you are unattached from outside, the more you have an ethical way of living, the more you come in contact with that Power; and, like an electric lift, it will take you to the place from where it emanated.

God came into expression from the wordless state as Light and Sound: “The Word was made flesh and dwelt amongst us.” That Power which manifests in some human pole is called the God-power or the Master-power or the Gurupower: Christ lived before Jesus, mind that, and lives forever. This is what St. John said. But we only ruminate over the scriptures, we don’t follow what is what. Once a man starts with the wrong thing, others follow him blindly. How many are there who can give you a first-hand experience? They may say, “All right, go on meditating,” and some may get an experience, but others may not. This is where the competency lies: because of the God in Him, not the son of man.

Someone asked our Master, “How should we address you?” He said, “Take me as your brother, as your father, as your friend, as your teacher. Just act up to what I say. When you rise above the body and you find Him inside, too, and there He is also competent to guide you, then you will call me by any name you like.”

The purpose of meditation


 

 

Blessed are those who meditate for the love of God.

Nowadays, meditation is done like breakfast is taken. Some people meditate to fulfill their wishes, some meditate for peace of mind. Some people meditate to gain riches in the world, name, and fame. Some people do it only for the building of the body, to get rid of the diseases. Some people make a show of their meditation, there are mesmerism, spiritism, spiritualism, there are hundreds of branches out of it and they have nothing to do with spirituality, on the contrary, they are dangerous traps for the soul. Some meditate to acquire supernatural powers, some meditate to influence others, and some people meditate for salvation. With these aims, however, one stays on the level of mind and cannot reach the plane of consciousness. There are thousand ways of meditation, which will not take us anywhere.

Better not to meditate than to meditate in the wrong way

To meditate only with the help of mind, to meditate to fulfill wishes, is a death trap for the soul. The astral plane is fully controlled by the negative power and is open for everybody. The experiences given by the self-styled “masters” are merely astral experiences. If you want to go to the astral plane, you do not even need a master, because the mind itself will take you there. In any way you will come there into the clutch of the negative power, you will lose your free will, your consciousness, and discrimination power, and you will be further bound in the net of transmigration.

So it is of great importance to find out what is that meditation, which will transcend us above the body consciousness and take us back to home eternal. Which is that meditation, which provides us the Water of Life and Bread of Life?

The subject meditation is directly connected with the purpose of human life, the development of the consciousness – the soul or spirit in man. The highest aim of life is self-realization and God-realization. But who meditates out of yearning and love for God?

To meditate without competent guidance, to perform yoga practices and to go into the chakras and use the Kundalini-power means to get lost in the astral and causal plane

Those who stress at the place between and behind the eyebrows and try to meditate by themselves, or practice various yogas, go into the chakras and enter into the astral plane. The chakras are controlled by astral forces that reveal themselves as gods and goddesses or angles. They are not conscious and of no help to man since they do not know the Father. They are of no use. They can only fulfil your wishes.

Many people go down into the body, their Kundalini-power opens and, coming from the spine, it rises from behind to the top of the head. The light and sound one experiences there is negative, it has nothing to do with the experience given by a competent Master.

Dr. Harbhajan Singh

 

Foolish man


 

 

For short blissful moments
Man sacrifices his whole life

But eternal happiness
Does not lie in external things
In fulfilled wishes
Chased pleasures

It lies hidden inside in us
It is time to excavate this treasure…

Are we aware that we stand
In our own way as a hinderance…?
