Threatening a country

The threat to a country
Is the beginning of violence

Whoever threatens, reveals himself as a perpetrator of violence.
He stirs up fear and terror
Seeks reasons and pretexts
To justify his violence
He bases it on fear
Which he himself spreads

The threat to a country
Does not lead to solutions, relaxations
Does not lead to peaceful coexistence
It leads to prescription and interference
Dictating a country
What to do and what not to do

Threatening a country is a bad advisor
It exposes dictatorship, wanting control over a country
Through blackmail, power, violence

When does man learn
That violence is no option?…

What man does reveals him

A dictator is not a dictator by himself
He is dictated by his own desires and intentions
Is under the control of his mind
Thus his control over people and states
Is only a copy of the control of his mind….

Not a strong man – a weak man….

Role swapping

Each dictator thinks
That he is dictating

However, it is his mind
That is dictating him

What to do
What not to do…

With and without motives

Every evil deed
Needs an excuse
A pretext
A good reason
To justify it
Under the cloak
Of power, greed and control

Every good deed
Requires no alibi
No insidiousness
To be selfless…

Mind – Intellect – Ego — by Sant Kirpal Singh

 
 

 
 
The mind by itself is not conscious. It is the consciousness of the soul that the mind reflects. Anyone whose soul is under the mind’s influence and control becomes an image of the mind, for he forgets his true self. We call this ego or I-hood for one thinks, “I am everything”. God plus mind is man and man minus mind is God.

In the temple of God (the body), the mind drags us downward, away from the truth. It is because of the mind that we cannot partake of that which is inside us. It drags us down like a weight of iron. In turn, the senses are dragging the mind, and the pleasures of the world are dragging the senses. If the attention withdraws from outer environments, leave the senses and calms the mind, then only does it realize that it is soul. Our mind is the barrier between soul and God.
 
 

Hidden in our own shadow

When we allow our mind to control us
To follow the tracks of our wide-ranging feelings
To follow the delusions of our intellect
We stand in our own shadow

The other side of power and money

It is a shame that a few people
Have control over many people
They cannot even control themselves
Are in love with themselves
Love leadership, money, and prestige
Their greed for power drives them
Makes them blind to:
Modesty, humility, genuine sharing with others
They do not know that it is they
Who are not admirable
Are blind in their actions
Are prisoners of their own greed

An honest and loving heart cannot be bought
Through power and money…

Thumb on other people

Pride and bossiness make a man
Who does not know himself
He loses himself in boasting
Wants approval and control over others

My pity is with him….

Food of our Senses

 
 

 
 

People are equipped with antennas
These are oriented to the outside
They connect to objects
Suction of information

We connect in seeing
In hearing and feeling
In tasting and touching
Ready to eat information

Millions of pieces of information flow
Want to be processed, digested
They land in the catch basin of our mind
Influence our thinking

Splitting, analysis takes place
Memories of good and bad
What is repeated, what is avoided
Data streams that move us

Senses control the mind
Garnishing it with information
The mind in turn controls us
Shackles us with habits and attachments

Do we have an antenna
That leads us inside?

Control and power

In the roots of the ego
Hides a great secret
Insatiable greed
Control over the whole world
For more and more
Over people and nations
Without a will of their own
As obedient servants, puppets
Human beings as possession
Every means is justified for it
To operate from darkness
To banish heart and light
Greed without limits
A mirror to oneself
Narcissistic love
A power play without equal
A shadow existence
Unconscionable action
Bloody wishes
Waiting to be fulfilled

Who rests in this ego? …

DidiArtist, 29.06.2021

Game of leading people

Who has the power
But is unconscious in many things
Sows the destruction
Is like a weed in the garden of life
Acts irresponsibly
Puts his ego first…

Game of mind

 
power and control
 

Some people are like cats
They play with their victims
Play cat and mouse with them
In this way they increase their appetite
For control and power

Spirit and Matter

 
power and control
 

What controls the body?
The body controls the body?
The car controls the car?
Or does the spirit
Inside the body controls the body?
The driver controls the car?

When we are spirit
Then we are not body
Body is not life
Because when life withdraws
From the body
Then it is dead, rudderless

Spirit is life
Mind: A mixture
Of spirit and body
Embodied spirit
Illusion, Maya
Punched wine

Sunbeam wants to return
To the sun
Spirit to spirit
Dust to dust…

Pyramid of power and influence

 

 

Power, not sharing, destroys
Eats itself

Intelligence that annihilate life
Is soulless, cold

Experiments, without respect
Are abhorrent

Control that dominates
Is blind

Everything that hurts
Is thoughtless

Violence done to others
Has no compassion

Influence – self-loved
Feeds the ego

Life in this shadow
Has no sunshine, no life…

Question of conscience

 

 

You are leaders of people
Within politics, in the military
At the working place, in the society
What was your reason to lead people?

Was it money?
You believe to get along
with people in an excellent way?
You believe in it
That your leadership
Is it a good service for your country?
You have “more” privileges?
You have “more” recognition in the society?
Or to advance in your profession, career?
Or you just like it –
To be in control of other people…
Or was it to quench your thirst for power?

Your honest answer maybe
A mixture of those questions…

But how can a man lead people
If he/she does not know him/herself?…

And all will answer:
We all know us, know ourselves very well…

You may control other people
But you are controlled by your mind…

Forgotten what we are

 
 

 

Disembodied is our Home
There is some power in the body
That controls it
But we think
We are bodies
Are identified
With matter and dust
Buy dust and material
Through wishes, money
Matter to matter
Dust to dust
Purchased happiness
Accumulated power

Disembodied is our Home
As we are spirit and light
Conscious beings
Prisoners in the fog
Of mind and ego
With distracted attention
Have forgotten who we are
Lost our purpose of life
Are blind, outside and inside
Have eyes only for illusion
Are chess pieces on the battlefield
Of positive and negative forces

Are fighting against each other
And do not see the brotherhood
The light in every heart
The source of sunlight
Forgotten that we are one
Separated from light through darkness
May we become a lighthouse
For searchers of the truth
Out there on the dark sea
Showing the way to light with light

Consciousness, fire of right understanding
Torchbearers, igniting the light within the hearts…

DidiArtist, 28.09.2020

 
 
 

Control

 

We control and handle our possession
Or are we possessed by our possession?

We control and protect our money
Or are we controlled by our money?

We have control over power
Or are we controlled by our power?

Is there anyone who has control over his mind?
– As mind is in control over us…

World of love

 

 

Our system is built up
In a hierarchy of power and titles
Attached to the ego
Wants more and more control

How much dirt and sand is used
To climb on this ladder?
A system, a business tailored
Between Yes and No

Forced to follow, to obey
In exchange for new roles
For higher positions
Paid with tricky temptations

One hand gives
Draws values, ideals in the air
While the other hand
Imprisons, keeps one tight

Orders are given from top to bottom
Manipulation on each level
Freedom – where is it?
When life is spoon-fed

At the horizon a new mankind is announced
Where better and higher crumbles away
A silver-lining of humanity
In the language of the heart

Where the voice of the heart is arising
There is no space for control and power…

Without Guidance

 

 

The mind is like a ship
Without rudder and captain
It floats on the waves of senses
Uncontrolled in all directions
On the ocean of life…
