Animalistic roots in us


 

 

We bear the seeds
Of good and evil in us
Rooted feelings
Eruptions, outbreaks
In all colours
Spectrum from anger to joy
Of happiness and sadness
Patterns of love and hate
In an alternating bath

Living blood
Pulsating in the roots
Intertwined arteries
Of fluctuating feelings
Thoughts that take shape
Reaction, perception of senses
Principle of cause and effect
Waves crashing down on us
Turning ourselves into waves

Who wins this game
Wins the life
Becomes a real human being…

In the clutches of the mind


 
 

 

Someone who is in the middle
Of his demanding mind
Running after desires, worldly pleasures
Is a slave of his mind
Acts with ego, anger
Attachment, lust and greed
Remains unteachable
Until he understands
Learns through suffering and pain…

Light without words


 
 

 
 

We are not those ones
As it seems
Are shadows on the wall
In the big game
Of a shady illusion
Light without words

We are not the fire
That burns within us
Ignited by the soft wind
Carried by anger and greed
Ego that feeds on others
Are light without words

Are prisoners of the mind
Play ball of a moody power
Of highly flammable conditions
In the maelstrom of darkness
Are, however, beyond this world
Where no shadows are thrown

Are light without words

Virus: Ego and Mind


 

 

Ego and mind of a man
Is like a virus
It needs a host
To multiply his power through:

Money, selfishness, pride, greed,
Attachment – packed in wishes

Detachment is the solution

Even from oneself
To be one…Self…

This virus is spreading around the world
May we all find a serum against it

The thousand faces of the ego


 

 

Sometimes we run after power
Sometimes bath in lust
Sometimes drink from the straw of greed
Sometimes are like oil and fire
Sometimes are possessed by possessions
Sometimes act like actors
Sometimes persist to be right
Sometimes convince with lies
Sometimes lose honour for little advantages
Sometimes are prisoners of wishes and desires
Sometimes hate even others for their otherness

We all change the masks permanently
To feed our ego and mind…

Time to be aware of our thoughts, words, deeds and its consequences…

To lose oneself, to find one Self


 

 

Only when we lose our identity.
We can act selflessly.
As there is nothing
To cling at, attach with

Then we become actless doers
Dive in Oneness, become one with the One…

Dreaming life


 

 

 

We dream our life
In all facets
Spin the thread
Multi-dimensionally

Immerse in the depth
Dream we are awake
Stumble over Illusions
Grasping void

Take us by our hands
Dreaming life together
Virtual matrix
Fed and shadowy life

We enter spaces
Whole Universes
Lose us in echos
On the pulse of time

Separate our being
To taste unique life
Experience happiness
In endless wishes

Chained to attachments
We carry heavy loads
Fall victim to them
Deceptive promises

Deeply we sleep in this world
Not knowing we are sleeping
We dream our life
To be alive

Time to be awake
To leave own reflection
Shadow matrix
To live real life

Flames of Love


 

 

A touch of the eyes
May inflame it
Wrong words and deeds
May extinguish it

This is the love of the mind
The love of the soul always shines…

Within the wind of change


 

 

Attachment and pain go hand in hand:
If we lose someone we are attached to
Pain and fear arises for the loss
Binds us to the past

We should therefore,
Love without attachment
Let go the change
Accept the change

To be the change within the change…

Mind outside – Soul inside


 

 

The soul is a silent observer
While our mind fishes in outward appearances
Turning its attention outwardly

When the mind turns inwardly
It shuts itself off
And the soul shows up…

Mind and Ego


 

 

We are storm and conflagration
War and peace
Heaven and hell
Hate and love
We are a raging ocean
An erupting super-volcano
We are smart and cunning
Always have a motive
To win, to enrich ourselves
For better or worse
We are greedy and exuberant
Striving for power and riches
For titles and acknowledgments
For possession and control
Worship the lust, which is our love
Attach ourselves firmly to the world
On things and people
Create wishes upon wishes
We are a serpent with thousands of heads
Medusa, a changing face
A spectrum of feelings, emotions
In shades and grades
We have chameleon-like thoughts
Deceive the owner
Lead her astray
Wrapping her in illusions
We, the five thieves…

The owner? – The soul…

DidiArtist, 18.07.2020

 
 

Toughest Test


 

 

The toughest test is,
To say goodbye to old habits
Which went into our flesh and blood…

From which we even think
They are good for us…

DidiArtist, 24.06.2020

 

Spoilt world


 

 

Power dictates what is good
What is bad
What is in fashion
What meaning one should have

Manipulation throughout the world
With money ruling along
Tailored egos, minds
Smell of egoistic ideals

Baits attract the mind
Packed in wishes
To bind attention
Injection of deceptive dreams

Confused people – victims of the system
Walk about with greedy eyes
Coloured in blood-red
Lustfully gaze through eyes hypnotized

Pink sky filled with endless wishes
Screaming market – ecstasy
Of more and more
Better and higher

Lost ideals sink in these clouds
Swamp of decadence
Battle between winners and losers
Heads falling down like leaves

Listen searcher of the truth
Keep your ideals high
And lead a life in light
Be a beacon in the night…

Compensatory Satisfaction


 
 

 
 

Wishes in the sand


wishes-in-the-sand2

 

Spirit dressed in matter
Dreams awake, ready  to fly
Reality to find
Freedom to search
To be alive

Marbled illusions
Take shape
In the wind of time
Unfolding dusty dreams
Perishing, renewing continously

Spirit woven in the light
Caressing the very moment
Eagle flight in timeless skies
Dissolves in the light
On wishless traces

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.
