Starlight – yearning


 

Nightsky dressed
In a web of dreaming galaxies
With endless sparkling stars
Infinity sinking slowly
In the eye of a child
With magic light

Silence speaks
Weaving the night
With a golden thread
Piercing through eternity
Perls of light

Moonlight vaporizes
Losing in dreams
Between past and now
With empty wishes
In the pulse of light

From deep abyss
Lost faces appear
To greet the heart
A wave of life
A touch of light

Voices from far
Streaming through the night
Whisper blue eternity
Echo of the silent sky
Glamour of the midnight light
Dance in the eye of a child…

Implosion of you and me


 

 

As soon born
A line was drawn
Border between
You and me

Mirror broken
Fragments flying around
Separating time and space
Birth of death and life

Thoughts draw lines
Contours of words
Wandering deeds
On a picturesque stage

Everything seems separate
Like pearls on a bead
Conscious fractures
Between me and the world

Everything moves outwardly
To cement lost pieces
Endless searching
Happiness in vain

But inside rests the answer
To find oneself
Unattached to the world:
Big-bang of life, consciousness

Reverse: Implosion of fragments
Restoring the mirror – Picture
Of you and me
Without lines, contours

Formless, timeless
Closed in itself
Eternal happiness
Radiant love

Stale words


 

How many times it happens
That we deceive ourselves
We identify us with mere words
Without really knowing,
Practically living them

To make us better
Compared with other?
To demonstrate knowledge?
Or to make a show
In front of us?
Or do we just run after
What is in fashion?…

We try to justify it
With some book-reading
And are even proud of it…

However, when reading
A book about water
We cannot squeeze the water
Out of it – not even one drop…

Journey to become honest and pure


 

 

To be honest
Is a matter of consciousness
To know our own mistakes
A process – walking into the depth

It is easy to say: “I am honest”
How many things we have overseen
Have not considered as honesty, dishonesty
In our daily life?

Yes, I am honest according of what I know
About my present state of mind
Present knowledge of myself
But what about the ignorance of myself?

Then I have missed many things
To consider as honesty, dishonesty
So walking in ourselves
Is to discover, to know ourselves – more and more…

What I claimed yesterday as honesty
May be today under a broadened horizon
So we bear honesty on our shoulders
To get lighter and lighter from ourselves…

The more we find us
The more we lose us
Detached from the world and even ourselves
To become pure in our hearts…

Prayerless Prayer


 

Wishlessly happy
Free from attachments
Of the world
When completely surrendered,
Devoted to God
Because He is
In the heart
Knowing each thought

This service to God
Land, man and soul
Done with the heart
Becomes a permanent prayer
Without thoughts…

DidiArtist, 16.05.2017

Breath of knowledge


 

Once our knowledge has practically manifested
It becomes the breath of our life
There, we are no longer ignorant…

However, ignorance is there
Where practical life is missing…

There where practical life is present
Living knowledge and experience
Fill the gap between saying and doing…

Searching for perfection


 

 

Perfection lies in the imperfection
It can never be reached
But is a way
To become better and better

Same as with consciousness…

Play with fire


 

Ignorance goes along
With naive thinking

Who sees through
The game of politics?…

…Bargening for votes
By unrealistic promises
Fairy tales – to win
Credulous voters
At all cost
To be on power

With people left behind:
Abused and cheated…

…Who also have to pay the bill
For following damages…

Difference between love and love


 

 

Love on the level of senses and mind
Loves the partner, the family, the pet, the country
Is limited to few people
Excludes millions and millions
Is a separating love from All and Oneness
Is a chosen love, not a love for everyone
Thus subject to conditions
Love with less understanding, less consciousness
That smells like ego, mind

Love on the level of the soul
Loves everyone, the whole creation
Is unlimited, embracing all and everything
Is sunshine for everyone
United in All and Oneness
Is a world-wide love, a love for all
Thus subject to unconditions
Love embedded in understanding, consciousness
That smells like roses and jasmine

May we all take a bath in the light of love
Love that is from the same essence as that of God
For all brothers and sisters in this world and beyond
For all creatures that God has created
Bathing in the Ocean of Love…without any borders…

DidiArtist, 12.01.2020

 

From one to One


 

 

We spin our dream
The thread of reality
Not knowing – it is a dream

We have to spin the thread
Of awakening, of consciousness
To wake up in Oneness

Into the One
Who is dreaming us
In His self-realization

To cast off – separation
Ego and mind
To live love in Oneness…

Fingerprints of words


 

Words are fingerprints
Of each indivual
With borders drawn
By the mind

Words smell
Like prison and war
Among people
Clashing ideas

With tolerance and love
Words can unite
Bring peace
Connect humans

Words seek agreements
Middle way, compromise
In colours and expressions
Under one roof

Thoughts – brain-traces
Coming into being
Translated feelings, imaginations
Into framed words.

Here and there fences
Where people fight behind
Singly, collectively
Fingerprints’ defences

DidiArtist, 07.04.2017

 

Clenched fist


 

There is a huge difference
If you want to hurt someone
Or you are hurt by mistake
Without the intention to hurt

Then the mistake
Becomes violent
In response…

An escalation founded
On misunderstandings…

How much violence we see in the world
Based on misunderstandings?

Travelling home


all in all

 

Juggler between life and death
Opposites breaking up
Opening in torpid senses
Vacuum of all and nothing

Dreaming clouds of finity
Facettes of changing illusions
Within the breath of infinity
Bleeding time, bursting eternity

Beyond all words and forms
Eternal moment arises
Sailing in silence
The Ocean of no(w)-here

Embeded in white roses
A sea of golden light
Fragrance of pure love
Torrent of all times

Coming together all and nothing
Fragments of a bursted dream
Endless unity, oneness without beginning
Meadow of All-consciousness

Forms are losing their forms
Words fading away, sinking back
In the pool of namelessness
Merging, embracing divinity

Illusions lose their taste
Broken actors their acts
Silently in the wake-up
Finding oneself, sky of eternity

Justified judging – mission impossible


 

 

Justice and injustice
Are subject to sympathy and antipathy

To be without prejudice
When judging a man
Is not possible
Because we are not within the
Causal effects and causes
Of a person we judge and condemn
As we do not live the life
What another man lives

We have only
The tiny life excerpt
of one we judge
Not his overall view

However, we judge and condemn
As if we knew – everything
about that man

Why?…

Colour of God


colour-of-god

 

Some are so much confused
They mistake love for blind hate
Some twist peace with violence
While others hide behind the name of God
Commiting murder in their blind hate
A fire burns in them: – the fire of hell?
They come with lies and promises from ambush
Enticing other persons without shame
To infect them with their illness and fire –
Who do not know the difference of love and hate
Manipulating them as their marionettes
However, many good people are out there
Who really know from their hearts:
Love does not know any violence
As it is the true colour of God…

DidiArtist, 06.01.2017

 

Crack in time and space


 

Our world separates
Day from night
Good from evil
Love from hate
Big from small
Hot from cold
Poor from rich
Stupid from clever
Greed from generosity
Matter from spirit
Values from opposites

This crack
In our world
Is our duality
Is Maya in our mind
An outer appearance
Merged with our senses
Is illusion
Separating us
From the whole
From Oneness

God and the world


 

World, a permanent change
Identified body
Journey into abyss
Shadow of light

Eternal God
Unity of all
Life in His breath
Sun without shadow

Worldly love
Crazy attached to pieces
Life in mirrors
Broken in fragments

Conscious love
All in One
Egoless giving
Compassionate Oneness

Worldly life conditioned
Sharing of one’s own
While divine light
Lives in service thankfully

Embracing Yin and Yang


 

Between two bodies
a warm hug
Can open hearts
Merging together
Into one world
Without words

Living silence
Interwoven
In each other
With stars pulsating
Giving birth
To unknown universes

Two hearts beating
In oneness
Rhythm and heartbeat
Eyes beyond worlds
Beyond bodies

Arm in arm
United, one
Singing love
Sphere
Of dancing light

Music of the soul
Vibrating tenderly
Harmony
Yin and Yang
Imploding explosion

Touch of inscrutability
Tides of feelings
Spiritual Gravity
Breathing life
Together

What is God, and how can we know Him? (Part 1) – by Sant Kirpal Singh


 

 

My dear friends,

Today I would like to share with you a talk by Sant Kirpal Singh: “What is God, and how we can know Him” – this important talk given by a real competent Master I am going to share with you in several parts.

The complete text can be read here, under the website of Unity of Man:

http://spirituality.unity-of-man.org/en/spirituality/god-ocean-of-consciousness/276-what-is-god-and-how-can-we-know-him.html

 

Have a good time in reading and digesting

All good wishes
Didi

 

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

 

 

What is God, and how can we know Him? (Part 1)

“He is One, He is the First. He is all that is. His name is Truth. He is the Creator of all, fearing naught striking fear in naught. His form on lands and waters is Eternity; the One Self-existent.
Through the grace of His true servant, continually repeat His Name. He was in the beginning; He is through all ages, and He shall be the One who lives forever more.”

This is the first of four talks given during Sant Kirpal Singh’s First World Tour in Philadelphia

Let me introduce myself, I have come to you as a man to man. I am just as any of you are. Of course, each man has got the same privileges from God. I developed in a way that concerns my own Self. What I learned at the feet of my Master about my own Self, the real Self, I will put before you so that those who are seeking after Truth may find some guidance.

As a child, I had that awareness in me: “What is the mystery of life?” I sought to find the solution in books. I may tell you that I had the opportunity of going through almost two libraries and also going through the holy scriptures of almost all the religions, or the majority of them, I would say. There were very good descriptions given there, but I could not find the practical solution of my problem.

What I came to know at the feet of my Master, I will be putting before you in the course of four talks. The subject of each talk will be a little bit different.

Today we will deal with “God and Man.” The next three talks will deal with “Higher Values of Life,” “Kingdom of God,” and lastly “The Most Natural Way to Enter the Kingdom of God.”

From a careful and unbiased study of the sacred books of the world we find that there is one Reality, which is our goal. That Reality is termed God and by various other names.

God made man and man made worldly religions. Such religions were made for the uplift of man. We have to make the best use of them so that ultimately we may know ourselves and then know God.

Religion has two aspects: One is the social side, or the outward side. The other aspect is the inner religion, the spiritual side. We have to start with outer forms of religions. Man is social; he must remain in some society.

Each society has its own various ceremonies and rituals, its own scriptures, its own mode of saying prayers. This is the non-essential side. We have to remain in’ some social religion because man is a social being – and to remain in some social religion is a blessing. But that is an elementary step – our going to churches or other holy places of worship, saying prayers, reading the scriptures, observing certain ceremonies, and rituals. All these go to create love in us for God.

But if our performance of rituals, reading of the scriptures or attending the churches or other holy places of worship does not even create in us love of God and constitutes mere mental gymnastics, these lead us nowhere. That does not mean that you are not to live in any social religion. You are to do so. If you revolt against it, you will have to form another society.

Suppose there are ten thousand people of your views. Then you will have to form a separate society and make certain rules to go by. After some time you find that a certain rule has proved defective and must be amended. So you go on amending the rules.

All the same this has to do with your outer selves. The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. Similarly, social religions were made for man, but man was not made for social religions. The purpose of remaining in any social religion is just to know oneself and then to know God. That is one aspect of religion. The other aspect is the observance of certain rituals and ceremonies. These vary in different religions, but you will find their purpose is nearly the same.

For example, in some churches to sit bareheaded is a mark of respect. In India, to sit with one’s head covered is a sign of respect. That is a custom there. Apparently, there is a difference between the two observances, but the purpose is the same. Both signify that whenever you sit in the presence of God, just remembering Him, you should sit in a respectful posture.

These are, however, non-essentials. The purpose is the same, no doubt. Apparently, some differences exist, but those differences do not affect in any way the purpose of the church.

Those who follow the letter of the rule, simply forget the spirit and fight only for the apparent differences. In Arabia, where there is a dearth of water, there is a custom that whenever you say prayers, you should just wash your hands, feet, face, and then sit for prayers. In other countries where there is an abundance of water, they say that until you take a bath, it will not be right to sit for prayers. That is only an apparent difference on account of the climatic or geographical conditions of the place.

We have to live in some social religion. So it is better to remain where you are. Do not change, if it can be helped. While there, what should you do? Just read the holy scriptures – the sayings of the Masters – you have, and try to understand what they say, and live up to them.
This is what you find: All Masters who came in the past were the children of Light, and came to give Light to the world. They did not come for any special religion or special country. They came for all humanity.

It is now time to cast aside the trivial differences that exist – the non-essentials. We should just look to the purpose for which they were made, and open our eyes to the Reality that we are all worshipping the same God. These were meant to represent that Reality which exists.

Now you will find, from the standpoint of all religions, that God the absolute is beyond what is known and manifested. That is something even beyond what is supporting and creating all creation. That Reality is at the back of everything. Can we search Him or find Him? No. He cannot be searched. He is unsearchable.

Canst thou by searching find out God? Canst thou find out the Almighty? The Almighty is inexpressible and cannot be expressed in words.

Names are simply given by the Masters to express that Reality, which is really inexpressible. He is the Changeless One. You find: “Forever more, O Lord, Thy Word existed in Heaven.” Forever more – that is the lasting Reality and that is the Changeless One. Ultimately, it is unconditioned and undivided. He is the Nameless One.

 

 

Impressions of Kirpal Sagar and history


Dear friends,

In the library of Kirpal Sagar visitors can see the history how Kirpal Sagar came into being – by the Grace of God, uniting all religions and men – only our ego and our outward going senses separates – in reality we are all One. We are the ones who draw the borders as matter discovers matter… as our physical eyes see the physical world (same recognizes same).

Have a good time, dear friends and good yearing on your path to find the truth, to find your self.
Didi
