The Third Eye – By Sant Kirpal Singh Ji


 
 

 

The third eye

The Third Eye, Shiv Netra, Divya Chakshu, Tisra Til, Brahmrendra, or Single Eye must be opened to see the Light of God. It opens when the sensory currents are withdrawn and gathered up to the seat of the soul at the eye focus behind and between the two eyebrows. Then one experiences the mysteries of the Beyond into which a Master-soul initiates a disciple during his lifetime. He gives a first-hand inner experience of conscious contact with the holy Naam -the Divine Light and the holy Sound-Current (Holy Ghost), as the lowest expression of the Divinity within. The light of the body is the eye, “if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light…”.

Revealing a secret


 

It’s me, Didi, at the age of 18 years – now I am much older…
A friend of mine and I arranged a photo-story: Man and nature…

Why I use nightskies in my artwork

Maybe many from my friends and followers have wondered why I almost always use stars as a kind of emblem in my artwork. This time I want to share this “mystery” to you.

When I was 2 years old we were living close to a forest and at that time there were hardly street lamps installed. My mother used a pram and was walking with me as a baby along a smaller path of a close forest which was really dark. I remember – although so young – that someday when my parents again had to walk with me along the edge of a forest, there was such a wonderful star-night which impressed me so much, although I surely did not understand it, only had feelings for this wonderful miracle in the sky, no words of course (I think we think in feelings at this age, a language maybe straight from the heart). Now if I think back I would describe the stars like sparkling diomonds in the dark night. I felt safe in it, like to be in my mother’s arms. I felt something very big in my heart.

This impression has accompanied me my whole life and therefore you will find space and time, stars of living beauty in my artwork, an expression of embracing eternity, infinity…

Thanks for your attention πŸ™‚

All good wishes

Walker between worlds


 

Climbing mountain
Vibrant ups and downs
Collecting wisdom, truth
Stowing them into the backpack
Of the heart

Pathes become familar
Traps and dangers known
Inner worlds visible
Experiences practical

How to share them?
Only those who know
Have eyes to see
And ears to hear

Others ogle with the mind
Cannot hear the truth
Of higher worlds above
But need their time, their way

Seeing is believing
Is knowing practically
Has no race with others
But humbleness and grace

Lonesome are the ways
The walks between the worlds
And those who know the land
Confirm, others not…

First rejection, then acceptance


 

 

Often we cannot accept something
What we do not understand
Out of ignorance

As soon as knowledge flows
Into our heart through experience
Our angle of view changes

Then we are able to accept
The newly aquired view
As living knowledge

What is meditation?

Old and New


 

 

We usually accept familar things
Something unknown requires our openness

Conclusion: we hold on to traditional things
Thereby often reject new ideas
Especially when they are in conflict
With our old adopted habits…

Inner seeing – by Sant Kirpal Singh Ji


 

 

When you meet someone who’s one with the truth,
who knows who and what he is and has experienced the Lord,
your senses will turn inward through His help,
you will withdraw from the outer world
and you will be able to look inside.

Param-Sant Kirpal Singh

 
 

The inner Sound (music of the spheres) – by Sant Kirpal Singh


 

 

 

 

Maulana Rumi says: β€œThe Saints are the True Devotees of God, always listening to the Divine Music within. That infuses life into the lovers of God.” Shamas Tabriz, another Muslim Saint, also speaks of it: β€œEvery moment a strange type of call is coming from the Heaven. I hear that voice and none else. Blessed indeed are they who hear this call.” This song is quite unique in character. No language can describe it β€” neither Turkish, nor Arabic, nor Persian, nor any other. It is, in fact, an Unspoken Language and an Unwritten Law unto itself. The Prophet Mohammed once declared that He listened to the Voice of God just as He listened to any other voice. But when questioned as to why it could not be heard by others, He said, β€˜β€You cannot hear this Voice as your ears have been sealed up. Hie to some Master Soul with a prayer for breaking of the seal and then listen attentively in the silence of your heart.” Mrs. Annie Besant, the great Theosophist, calls it the Voice of the Silence and says that the Silence becomes vocal when the mind is at perfect rest. β€œThe Kingdom of God is within you,” says Christ. The trouble is that we search for it without and find it not. Man in his search for God has not spared any efforts. He has looked for Him in the sacred rivers (like Ganges, etc.), in the snow-capped mountains of Badrinath, Kailash, Amarnath, etc., in the deep recesses of the forests, and in the sacred places of all antiquity, but with no success. As the β€œway out” to God lies within, you will have to find a Master who knows the Way and would be a guide unto you until the goal is reached. This work only a True Master can do and no one else can do it. Now the question comes: Where can this Divine Music be contacted? To this the Master replies, β€œThis Divine Music is going on in Sukhmana (a central cord between Ida and Pingala, the two cords on either side, which running through the spine and passing through the center of and between the two eyebrows, reaches directly as far as Sach Khand or Shah Rag as named by the Muslims). It can be experienced by the soul in her deepest depths, when layer by layer the various sheaths or coverings (physical or gross, mental or subtle, and causal) are shaken off from the soul in her onward journey to the various Lokas or regions: the sun, the moon, the stars, of spirits (Pithrian), of Deities (Devian), etc. At each stage, the Music becomes more enrapturing than before, until in Par Brahm (beyond the three Lokas) the soul becomes self-luminous in her pristine glory; then the Music, too, becomes exceedingly charming, in full swell with unending continuity. This is the Ajapa Jap going on at all times in an Unspoken Language. As the soul hears it she gets magnetized, with the result that the mind with its outgoing faculties is paralyzed for want of the inspiration it is used to drawing from the Spirit, and gradually it loses its hold of her. The high-born maiden (being a drop of the ocean of Sat Nam) is freed from its clutches and now moves on unhampered.” It is, of course, impossible to describe the sublime symphonies in so many words, as they are past description for want of adequate expression. At present every soul has, on account of constant association with mind, acquired a tendency to flow downward and outward through the outgoing faculties. It is because of this that she cannot catch the Sound Current (the Elixir of Life) within. A cup turned upside down may for ages remain in the rain, but not a drop will fall into it. But if it is turned aright, it will get filled up in one or two showers. Exactly is it the case with the soul. As soon as the Master Soul gives her a contact with the life-giving Sound Current, by turning it aright through the withdrawal of the sensory current, the lotus-like cup of the spirit gets more and more water of Immortality until she gets drenched through and through and is saved forever. Mind, you know, is ever after pleasures of one kind or another. But the pleasures of this world are all transitory and have always some sting at the bottom. β€œOur sincerest laughter with some pain is fraught,” says an English poet. This renegade of the mind can only be subdued if some internal pleasure of rapturous strains of the Divine Music β€” the Word β€” is given to it in lieu of the external one. When mind tastes the sweet Elixir, it is diverted from the worldly enjoyments and is subdued. The soul becomes free. This is the only remedy by which the sages controlled the mind. It held good in all ages β€” the Golden, the Silver and the Copper, and holds good even today in Kali Yuga or the Iron Age. The Sat is eternal. It was in the beginning. It was in the middle, and it shall ever remain until Eternity.

The Divine Music of Sat is then the sovereign remedy for stilling the mind. In due course of time, by regular practice, the soul becomes fully absorbed into the Elixir of Naam, and the mind is rendered absolutely ineffectual. As said above, the Sound Current begins from Turya Pad when, the sensory current having withdrawn from the body, the soul enters into the Beyond. The five strains in seriatim follow one another from one spiritual plane to another until Sach Khand is reached. One has to take hold of each of these strains or melodies for traversing from stage to stage until the final stage is attained. It is only here that salvation of the soul is assured and the cycle of births and deaths ends. This is the grand purpose of life, which one fulfills through the grace of the Master Soul. The Master Saint Shamas Tabriz says: β€œThe Great God has turned us out and closed strongly the door behind the eyes. He Himself comes to us in the garb of a man to take us back into His fold.” The method by which He lets us in once again is explained further: First one has to withdraw into the silence of the soul, before he begins to hear the five strains of Music. The sensory current is to be withdrawn at the seat of the soul behind the eyebrows. The journey onward begins from this stage, the seventh in the order from below. When the soul rises above the six chakras or ganglions in the Pind or physical body and starts toward Sahans dal Kanwal (thousand petaled lotus), the seventh stage, she catches the first of the five strains of the Divine Music and proceeds further. There is no Naam in the lower six chakras. These, in fact, are the grave, from which we have to rise above and come to the point from where the Grand Trunk Road of Spirituality begins. Another Saint says, β€œAt the seventh stage you begin to hear the five strains of the Divine Music, when you remove the tent of the soul from the graveyard of the body comprising the six lower chakras. From here heavenly Music takes charge of the soul and pulls it up from stage to stage until the final consummation with Sat Purush or Sat Naam takes place.” Almost all the Saints have given the same qualifications of a True Master. Guru Arjan says, β€œAccept that man as a Guru who can give you an experience of the Truth, the Naam. That is indescribable, no doubt, but we must have some contact thereof.” In short, whoever can tune us into the Shabd β€” the Divine Music.

 

 

Believe what another person believes ?


 

 

 

How can a person believe
What another person believes or thinks?
Even when they know each other over years
None of them sits in each other
Noone knows him or her completely
Not his or her motivations, background
And only sees a tiny part…

How easy it is to judge, condemn…

Hurting people with prejudices
Is in fact a bumerang to oneself…

As we think we become


 

 

Experiences differ
Cannot be transfered
From one to another
Is unique knowledge

Endless discussions
Are not the instruments
To make us understand
In exchanging experiences

Closer experience, lived mutually
Shared with each other
Results in deeper understanding
Making us friends

Hints we may give
To enter the flying carpet
Of individual experiences
To carry us through imaginations

Experiences of others
Can be made as our experiences
When following their footprints
Counting 1 + 1 together

Therefore holy Sants and Saints
Invite us to step into their way
With discipline and honesty
To make their experience as ours

Truth is One…

Unequal Perspectives


 

 

Only who experiences the same
Or things similar
Is able to understand
Able to know

How many mistakes, misunderstandings arise
from the inequality of experiences?
How many prejudices are fired off
Without a common foundation?

Inner experiences
Cannot be shared
Nor discussed or transferred
They must be lived through…
