We are blind towards ourselves

Would we see the mistakes we make
How many times a day would we have to apologise

Would we see why we do or say something
We would see our selfish motives

Would we see how we treat other people
Our pride in ourselves would leave us

Would we see how we treat ourselves
Our theatre towards ourselves would end

Would we see how we struggle to gain advantages
Our self-respect would be at rock bottom

Would we see what we are doing with our lives
Would we be ashamed to the core

Would we see where our attention goes
We would perceive wasted time

Would we see the meaning of our life
We would become a different person….

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.

How often

How often do we hurt
Without knowing it?

How often do we ignore
Unintentionally, unintentionally?

How often do we overlook important things
With open eyes?

How often are we deaf
To hear the truth?

How often are we blind
To our own mistakes?

How often do we look away
Without helping?

How often are we different to others
Than to ourselves?

How often do we think differently
Than we act?

How often do we have to fall
To learn from our mistakes?

How often does everything repeat itself
Like Sisyphos rolling a rock uphill?

It may be avoided,
When in our attention lies consciousness
Right understanding…

It all starts with honesty

When we change our angle of view
A new understanding is born
By observing ourselves
What we think, feel, say, do
Then the haze of inattention lifts:
Attention – scattered in all winds
That makes us unconscious
Distracted from our own faults
Drives and pulls us into the outside
Out to the market of the world
Lets us sow bad habits

The new point of view will help us
To overcome the old and bad habits

Everything begins with longing for the truth
For the One, Indivisible, Eternal

It all starts with honesty
Before oneself and others
Let alone in front of God…

Outside and Inside

 
power and control
 

The mind directs the attention outwardly
The soul inwardly
Unfortunately the mind is so strong
That we look for truth and love only on the outside….

Merging duality – Oneness

 

 

Our attention – superficial
Constantly distracted
From our inner treasure
Does not go into the depth
Height, width, length
Makes us experience only separately
Yet with the focus
Beyond one’s own nose
We invite the ocean…

Ready for eternity?

 

 

The bridge from pleasures of the world
To become a tool in the hands of God
Is a way of making decisions
To live for Him, with Him eternally

Wishes and pleasures are tempting
Draw attention in all direction
Are not focused, absorbed in Him
Prevent full concentration

With stops and go indecisions are made
Preferred to bath in pleasures
To push off the ultimate decision
To enter into Oneness

As long as mind is besmeared with dust and matter
The soul cannot be ready for her last step
To live without ego in His light
To become one with the One

This bridge, a way from ourselves to “our” Selves
From our being to His Being…

Borrowed Happiness

 

 

Every possession only possesses us…
Embedded in our ego, mind
Imprisons, steals our attention
In the focus of worldly pleasures
To make us believe
We are the owner
Own, possessing things
Identified with them
Distracted for one reason…

Who is the real owner?…

Be Good, Do Good, and Be One

 
 

 
 

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…

DidiArtist, 22.06.2019

 
 

Let God live in our attention

 

 

Wherever we go
Let’s take Him with us

He lives in our heart
Knows our thoughts

There is no way
To hide from Him

Our knowledge should be a reminder
He is always with us

Our love for Him will grow
As we become aware of our sins

Cheating us, cheating Him
It will not work

We run against self-built walls
Reap what we sow

Forget Him in turning our face
To this and that

So let us enter Him
Into our attention

And become One with Him…
