Acted kindness


 

 

 

Sometimes we make a show
Perform a play of theatre
Use friendly words
Pretend humbleness, respect

When life comes to test us
We lose self-control
Are hurt within speculations
React: hurting, punishing

Fired arrows find their goal
Through self-made illusions
Revenge onself for being “hurt”
Self-pleased satisfaction

Words of respect
Crumble, fade away
Reveal the true face
Unmask the show

Our mind has thousands masks…

Waves of cause and effect


 

Every single thought
Each word and deed
Create reactions, reflections
Waves of cause and effect
In the stormy ocean of life

Shouldn’t we therefore think twice
Before words and deeds are released?…

Lashed freedom


 
 


 

Strandet at self-created limitations
Horizons fenced with words
Thoughts of right and wrong
Shaking, breaking

Waves of fixed measurements
Strike against the bank of tolerance
On a rigid sea called non-acceptance
Water of no space

Accompanied by fear and pride
Defended knowledge of scarred injuries
Fortress against hostile attackings
House of a snail

Ship of prison in the mind
Should weigh its anchor
To be free from thoughts and words
From luring wishes of these worlds

Like an eagle fly above all clouds…

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…

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

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

Borrowed acknowledgement


 

Born in the dust
With hands hurt
Through barbed wires
Arising from moments

Left in the corner
In ice-cold smiles
Eyes searching for help
Asking for mercy

A deal in the air
Between stumbling words
And false promises
To grant a piece of affiliation

Time covers the root
Forgotten is the deal
Found in resonance
Flattering words

Life continues in darkness
Not knowing of the trap
Thinking of love and light
Imprisoned in the night

My heart is with them…
May they awake from sufferings, dark dreams
Newly born in conscious light
Of love and happy life…

Connecting link


 

 

There is one religion
It grows within
The religion of love

Is beauty of a flower
Spreading its perfume
From man to man

This love connects
Creates unity
Beyond boundaries

Unites planets and univerves
Is essence of life
Lives in the hearts of every man

Religion of love
On the level of man…

Know yourself – know God!


Everyone has in him, says a Saint, a pearl of priceless value, but as he does not know how to unearth it, he is going about with a beggar’s bowl.

The science of the soul

It is a practical subject and even to call it a religion of soul is a misnomer, for soul has no religion whatsoever. We may, if you like,call it the science of the soul, for it is truly a science, more scientific than all the known sciences of the world, capable of yielding valuable and verifiable results, quite precise and definite.

He who, by the power of the Word, finds himself can never again lose anything in the world.

By contacting the light and life principles, the primordial manifestations of God within the laboratory of the man body, we can virtually draw upon the “bread and water of life”, rise into cosmic awareness and gain immortality. This is the be-all and end-all of all religions, and embedded as we all are in the one Divinity, we ought to represent the noble truth of the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man. It is the living Word of the living God and has a great potential in it. It has been rightly said: “Man does not live by bread alone but by the Word of God.” And this Word of God is an unwritten law and an unspoken language. He who, by the power of the Word, finds himself can never again lose anything in the world. He who once grasps the human in himself, understands all mankind. It is that knowledge by knowing which everything else becomes known.

Man, know thyself

The only prerequisite for acquiring this spiritual treasure in one’s own soul is self-knowledge. This is why sages and seers in all times and in all climes have in unmis­takable terms laid emphasis on self-analysis. Their clarion call to humanity has al­ways been: Man, know thyself.

You will find all Masters gave that you must know yourself first, as self-knowledge precedes God-knowledge. The old Greeks had to say the same thing, “Gnothi Seauton”, “Know thyself!” The Upanishads say so, “Know thyself” and the Bible says, “Be still, and know that you are that.” So I mean to say there are findings of all Masters in all religions; and they have given out the same parallel thoughts, which are the same everywhere. God is to be realized.

Now the highest aim before us is to know God. All scriptures say so. But to know God, we have to know ourself.

How to know ourself?

By self analysis – by rising above body-consciousness. This physical body which is shaken off at the time of death – if we learn now how to leave the body, we will know we are not this body – we are the indweller of the body. We have got the astral body to work through the astral planes, and the causal body to work through the causal planes. If we just rise above all these, we know that “The father is working through me, and I am in the father.” “I and my father are one.”

You must know

You must know what you are, who you are.
You must know from where you came and how you came.
You must know your purpose of human life.
You must know all you did so far is fake and void.
You must know now you learn how to live and speak through life.
You must know your disease is within and remedy is within.
You must know all your questions are within and remedy is within.
You must know that still you need the help.
You must know your determination is a turning point in your life.
You must know you feel fully embedded with positive and potent thoughts.

Turning into…


 

 

When someone talks badly about you
Talk nicely about him

When someone thinks badly of you
Think well of him

If someone accuses you of making mistakes.
Emphasize his good qualities

If someone hates you
Embrace him with love

When someone criticizes you
Praise him

When someone is angry with you
Show compassion

When someone appears to be your enemy,
Treat him like a friend

If someone hurts you
Have gratitude

This is how a stone is transformed
Into a heart… into humanity…

Our inner anchor should be:
Peace, balance, love, humility
Compassion, kindness, non-violence – ONENESS

Lack of Love


 

 

There are people, they harm themselves
Expose themselves to pain self-created
To feel they are still alive

They do it not knowing
It is an act of self-punishment
Not to be loved so much

As a lack of love and self-love

May we all treat us with love
That no-one is excluded from this shower…

That no-none searches happiness
In a self-refuge of tasting own pain…

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…

Overcome walls between us


 

We fight for differences
Erupt in hate, blind conflicts
Measure colours of skin
Within tight sights

Fight for good and better
Separate religions
Hide behind names
Dismember unity

Cultures and nations
Meet in fear, have no trust
Prepare for wars
Mankind’s annihilation

When do we see and learn
We are all human beings?

Let us create values of harmony
To live in peace and oneness

On the common level of a Human Being…

The science of the soul – (Part 4 – last part)

The science of the soul – (Part 4 last part)

The whole text can be read here:

http://spirituality.unity-of-man.org/en/spirituality/god-spirit-and-soul/357-the-science-of-the-soul.html

We have just seen that as a counterweight to both the faculties of mind, that of sight and audition, the providence has provided us with a treasure of divinity within which can be unearthed to our advantage with the aid of a competent Master. So mind can be controlled only with the grace of the Master, who attunes it with something substantial within – the light and voice of God. We should always try to sit at ease at the eye focus, the resting place of the soul during waking hours, and try to get the mystic experience which the Master vouchsafes to all who come to Him.

The search without causes a lot of pain and sorrow. The well of life-giving nectar is within and one need dip therein.

With all our gratifications at the sensual level, we get nowhere. “Desire is the root cause of all misery,” exclaimed Buddha. It is the intense craving for the enjoyment of the senses which leads to untold misery and agony. It is a perverted viewpoint that we try to satisfy our thirst for enjoyment by our (outer) indulgence. Even in the field of spiritual discipline, many souls continue looking for the Lord outside in the scriptures, places of pilgrimage, ascetic living, or in other good acts, all of which mean searching the self outside, ignoring the fact that the fountain of bliss and immortality known as Amritsar (the pool of nectar) is within, and can be properly tapped with the grace of a Master-saint. The bliss-giving holy Naam, or the Word, is within the body; and we waste our precious time and energy in its pursuit in the wrong direction. The divine source of immortality is within us all, and those who introvert and recede within do sip the elixir of life; and by drinking that, all their cravings come to an end. The holy initiation into this mystic science by the living Master gives a foretaste of the wine from the divine cup-bearer, who doles out and administers it under the divine commandment. No worldly enjoyments can equal the ineffable grandeur which lies far beyond the ken of human comprehension and apprehension.

After we have known that the very fountainhead of perpetual bliss and harmony is within us, and fortunately having been blessed with holy initiation by the gracious Master, the next question is how to derive the maximum benefit. The succeeding verses provide an answer to this question.

Leaving all vices, become an abode of all virtues. Whenever you fall into the vices, it behoves you sincerely to repent.

Herein lies the secret of spiritual discipline. To err is one thing, but to go on repeating past mistakes is unpardonable. Most people have no idea whatsoever of their doings. In the whirlwind of passions, we seldom care to look within and pause to consider about our lapses or shortcomings. Many of us do not know the maladies with which we are affected. This is why daily self-introspection is recommended, for unless we know of our faults, we cannot take the next step of weeding them out. Ethical life precedes Spirituality. It is only during the silent moments of deep thought and meditation that one comes to find these hidden thieves constantly keeping us in perpetual bondage. Every action has a reaction. It is a universal law. It works everywhere. The spiritual aspirant is necessarily required to keep a stern watch over his thoughts, words, and deeds. The evil has its roots deep down in the unfathomable past and grows strong with the present actions. You should know it for certain that the past cannot be undone, but one can take a stand somewhere. It is only possible when we have something more fascinating and more abiding than the sense objects that keep us in fascination. Mind loves to enjoy, and all enjoyments derived at the sensual level are but a reflection of the attention of the self within. The gross vices that at present hold a charm should be weeded out by self-analysis and self-introspection. These should be replaced with their opposites, the ennobling virtues, by leading a well regulated life. Regular meditations and continued self-examination help a lot in this direction. The changeover cannot, of course, be accomplished overnight; but patient and persistent efforts do go a long way in achieving the desired results. We may fall and fail here and there; but with each failure, we get more strength to fight and overcome the evil. A sincere repentance and prayer for divine help and guidance make us invincible in the long run. Thus, by continued vigilance and check, we can get good dividends. The mind is a treacherous gamester. With every loss it craves for more gain. Unless we stop eating any more poison, we cannot possibly wash off the poison in our bones and blood.

Man does not differentiate between good and evil with the result that he again and again goes deep into the quagmire of delusion.

This is our true state of affairs. We can hardly foresee the results of our doings and foolishly cling to the pleasurable sensations, caring little for the consequences. Having been fully engrossed in the lures and temptations of the physical life, we are unwillingly going down in the scales of moral values. Our flight is like that of an ignorant man held fast in the quicksands of time who at every step forward goes deeper into the treacherous sands. A mighty hand of some friend may come to our rescue and pull us out of this condition of helplessness. Our mighty little soul is woefully entangled in the physical limitations; and only the gracious Master, in the form of the holy Naam, may come to our rescue. Otherwise, there is no hope for our safety. Like muck-worms, we are rushing in the mud. In spite of it, O Lord, have pity and take us out!

Within thee is the dross of false attachments. How can the washing of the body help?

The water can wash off dirt from the body, but not from the mind polluted with vices. There are many vices lying hidden in the mind including those of falsehood and greed. These are the dormant latencies of the mind and require a strenuous effort for eradication. Falsehood does not simply mean telling lies, but it means and includes the great gulf between what is in one’s head and heart and what one says and does. Many persons come up and take the spiritual course as a fancy, but inwardly with some ulterior worldly motive. They fail to attain their goal. We should be true to ourselves, and delve deep into our hearts to find out as to what is the underlying factor for which we are taking up the holy path. The Master is competent to grant us anything we cherish of this or of the other world. But He advises us always to keep our target high; that is spiritual perfection. Greed is equally a strong fetter. It should be overcome by renunciation. Greed breeds hatred and feeds fat the latent ego. It blinds the inner eye and thickens the dark veil. A spiritual aspirant should always feel grateful for the manifold blessings, which are granted to him by the grace of the Master. If we awake to the sacred truth and comprehend the grandeur of the holy Naam granted by the Master, we will be dumbfounded with its divine ecstasy.

Let the peerless Naam be ever with the Gurmukh. This will make manifest all the inner secrets.

This holy Naam is immaculately pure and its constant practice confers the greatest blessings. One must, however, try to be a Gurmukh, the mouthpiece of the Guru, in his daily life. It means that we should follow the behests of the Master implicitly. The term Gurmukh has a special significance in the sacred terminology of the Saints. It literally means the mouthpiece of the Master or a prototype of the Master. We should always yearn for spiritual perfection, which the Master has set before us by precept and action. One with all his attainments should never consider oneself as perfect, because there are innumerable spiritual realms, one over the other, as so many mansions in the palace of the Father. Always look up for the charming radiant form of the Master within, and follow Him lovingly. The holy meditation on Naam will open up many a new region, and divine grace will fill in with abundance.

Give up covetousness, censure of others, love of mortal things, and take to the search of truth through the Word of the Master.

The Master repeats His admonition in yet stronger terms. We should give up the habit of useless talk for and against others. Censure means criticism, but Masters have gone a step further. They include in it both praise and dispraise. Whatever we talk about has a bearing on our character. If we talk about the evils of a person, naturally these will gradually begin to reflect on ourselves. Similarly, if we give undue importance to somebody, it will lead to misrepresentation, for we cannot possibly know the intrinsic worth of a person. It is, therefore, enjoined that we should always be calm, cool, and collected within. Nothing is perfect save the gracious Master on whose chosen human pole that divine power works. If there is anyone who commands our reverence and adoration, he is the Master. And it is our own mind with all its blemishes that deserves scrutiny and censure. If we throw a brick-bat into a pool of dirty water, we are sure to soil our own clothes. So we must always be cautious in this respect and always dwell on our own selves by keeping our faculties well under control by self-examination and spiritual discipline. The holy words of the Master when cultivated carefully will bring much reward.

Redeem us, O Lord, in any way it pleaseth Thee. Thy servant Nanak adores the holy Shabd.

Humility is the highest watermark in spirituality. Guru Nanak concludes the hymn by invoking the Lord to take any course that pleaseth Him and prays for redemption from the whirlwind of lusts and passions. I always adore and appreciate the greatness of the holy Shabd – the God-into-Expression Power – that has blessed me with this rare union. So the Naam, or the audible life stream, is the central theme of the teachings of the Masters, through whose grace one finds everlasting peace and harmony. In fact, the living Master is Word personified, as it is through Him that the divine word is made manifest to us and helps us in attaining perfection in due course.

Charitable hospital of Kirpal Sagar, India


Dear friends,

Today I would like to present the Charitable Hospital of Kirpal Sagar.
May God bless you all
Didi

 

Kirpal Charitable Hospital

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

Since it ­was ­the ­wish of ­Sant Kir­pal ­Singh to ­help ­the ­needy ­with med­i­cal ­care, ­the Kirpal Charitable Hospital ­was ­the ­first fa­cil­i­ty with­in ­the pro­ject ­which ­took up ­its func­tion in 1983.

Poor ­and ­needy peo­ple ­are get­ting ­free med­i­cal treat­ment ­and med­i­cine. Ho­me­o­path­ic, al­lo­path­ic ­and na­tu­ro­path­ic ther­a­pies ­are ap­plied by doc­tors ­from In­dia ­and Ger­ma­ny. Furthermore, ambulances reach out to remote villages at central gathering points, such as schools to provide medical care for people.

From time to time eye specialists from the Indian Government 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.

Al­so prep­ar­a­tions ­for a Med­i­cal Col­lege ­are in ­progress. Students of this Medical College will perform their practical training within the hospital.

Old people’s home in Kirpal Sagar


Dear friends

In Kirpal Sagar we have also started to built an Old People’s Home (about 24 years ago) that possibly will be the biggest in whole India giving accomodation for about 1000 elderly people in future. So the social aspect plays also an import role beside the spiritual aspect in Kirpal Sagar where man can develop as a real man to practise service to man, service to the land and service to one’s own soul.

To you all greetings from my heart
Didi

Old people’s home

The old people’s home was opened in 1994 during the World Conference on Human Unity held in Kirpal Sagar.

Due to the prevailing poverty, many elderly people in India, although they are loved by their families, do not have a pleasant life. The elderly people with their life experience will be able to give their advice and help each other. They have also learned certain professions. If they are able to guide others, they can be of invaluable help for unskilled people working on the project.

It will be possible for them to deal with the meaning of human life, and even in old age they will be able to understand what they have not yet understood. In this way, their lives can come to a peaceful and gentle end.

Those who want to serve selflessly have the opportunity to do so here. You can choose from the various activities of the project to find a job that suits you. In this way, they can find fulfilment in the service to their fellow man and can live in a carefree manner, in an atmosphere that is entirely focused on their physical and spiritual well-being.

Some build relation
On cleverness
Some choose power
As their means
Some use violence
To achieve their goals
Some bath in fakes
To stand in light
Some are tricky
Behave like vampires
Some fill their pockets
With dark money
Some escape
Create virtual worlds
Some are greedy
Fight for more
Some are hurt
React as bumerang
Some are jealous
See ghosts everywhere
Some flatter
To win advantages
Some do business
With life and death
Some lose themselves
Search their place

Some love God
Not for their own sake
But for God sake

Some share and give
Their last shirt

Some do and live
Not for themselves
But in service for others

Some are conscious
See the world in flames
Give their life
For a better world

Lets peep behind the curtain
To which motives we belong to…

Sharing smiles


 

 

Let us take by our hands
By our hearts, by our heads

Let us sing together
The song of humanity

Let us forget dark nights between us
And let the sun shine on us

Let us treat as humans
As brother as sisters

Let us live love among us
Compassion from man to man

Let us help each other
Live for each other

Let us overcome differences
On the level of man

Let us not see the mistakes of others
But let us work on our own ones

Let us share a happy smile
To be happy together

A world of peace
Harmony between people:
Noone is rich
Noone poor

Greed for love
Money for selfless help
Ego for compassion
War for humanity

One language governs
Our beautiful planet:
Language of the heart
One God for all
No separation anymore

Ideologies merge together
To the welfare of mankind
Children grow up
Without fear
With ethic values

Hearts are touching everywhere
With respect towards each other
Borders are taken down
Freedom for everyone
Free breath, recovered nature

May this dream come true…

Anger and fury


 

Anger controls
Controls thoughts
Deeds, words
Sets on fire

Anger closes eyes
Sees things
In blindly rage
That are not there

In Anger – house in flames
Attempt to extinguish them
With burning oily thoughts, words
Throwing them wildly around
When pride feels offended

Intention to hurt, to react
To judge in conflicts – blindly, unfairly
Not knowing the one
Who should be hurt

Anger, a game: eye for eye
Tooth for tooth
Which should not have
Our participation

To stay calm is the answer
To be untouched, unaffected
Not willing to fall for the trap
In this game of mind

Opposite: When someone throws words
Let us send back: Thoughts
Of compassion, of sympathy
Kindness, good wishes, of love
