The thousand faces of the ego


 

 

Sometimes we run after power
Sometimes bath in lust
Sometimes drink from the straw of greed
Sometimes are like oil and fire
Sometimes are possessed by possessions
Sometimes act like actors
Sometimes persist to be right
Sometimes convince with lies
Sometimes lose honour for little advantages
Sometimes are prisoners of wishes and desires
Sometimes hate even others for their otherness

We all change the masks permanently
To feed our ego and mind…

Time to be aware of our thoughts, words, deeds and its consequences…

Human bridges


 

Let us build bridges
From religion to religion
Mutually bridges
Leading to God

No bridges
Of hate and violence
But bridges
Of loving essence

Bridges, which connect
Which do not seperate
The scaffold of humanity
Turning hate into love

Let us build bridges
Create brotherly love
Broaden our horizons
Leaving no wounds

As we all sit in the same boat
Are not black or white
Are connected lights
Drops of the Ocean Oneness

Our Earth, a living Being


 

 

O man, with billions of spines
You sting your own home
Destroy seas and forests
You take our air to breathe

O man, in your boundless greed
You eradicate diversity
Of countless species, creatures
You are destructive and unconscious

O man, for how long are you going on like this?
Before you realize, it is you
Who ruins our world
Our wonderful blue planet

O man, more and more species are disappearing
You stand there with the torch
And burn the ice of the world
Indeed, you are responsible

O man, how much more stupidity you have to commit
To realize that we are one
With our nature, this great organism called EARTH
To live with her in Harmony

Our earth will definitely present you the bill
If you think only of yourself…

I am an Alien


 

 

I live among people
Who hate each other, go to war
Where blind rage draws faces
Laws degenerate: eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth
Where people chase each other
To blame each other

I live on a planet
On which power, tyranny, egoism, money-greed rules
Where weapons and sharp words speak
Masses pour out in anger
Suppression is on the agenda
Man himself is next

I live in a boat called humanity
That staggers on the ocean violence
Where holes are chiselled in the planks
Threatening to sink the boat
Where stubbornness screams to the skies

Really, I live in this world
But I am not from this world

My heart belongs to the One
Where love is my home…

A bit of attention and love


 

 

We, humans, are social beings
Need each other
Seek for comfort, security
Want to be respected

Some look for the outer way
In clothes, in styling
Outbid each other with tattoos and piercings
Want through sensation attention

Others brag about money and power
Holding property to show
Invite to disfavor and pride
Want to be envied

Still, others outbid each other
To “celebrate” to be sick in competitions
At the cost of health and life
Want to be in the limelight

Again others escape the world
Search their peace in the virtual world
Carry out their competition there
Want to obtain virtual acceptance

But what do we really want?
A bit of attention and love

We should distribute them unconditionally
Without show and expectation…

Power game


 

 

There are always only a few people
Who decide over war and peace
The common people suffer
Mostly in the event
Of an escalation between nations

They are the pawns
Of a strategic power struggle…

Chair of Power


 

 

Some are stuck in their seats of power
They think they are indispensable
It shows weakness
Not to free the chair for others

They want to rule, dictate
They have tasted the power
Now they are addicted
Are themselves controlled by it

Strength is to recognize
When to resign
Hearing the call of time
To leave the chair in honor

The sting of power is deep in them
They are poisoned by it
Their heart tied in a small space
They only hear their own voice

Give way to the power of humanity
Your time is up…

Selfish mind


 

If we are conscious
That God is everywhere
How can we hurt other people?
As in all people
This power is there too

We can only hide us from Him
When we are unconscious
When we ignore, hide Him in us
When we deceive ourselves
Play a game or make a show

So let us become conscious
Knowing that we are all one
That He is the One in all of us
Let us treat therefore with respect, love
As this is love and respect to God

From good thoughts
Good words and deeds will follow
On the foundation of honesty
Which is honesty towards God and Oneness
A tool to clean our impure mind…

Mind and Ego


 

 

We are storm and conflagration
War and peace
Heaven and hell
Hate and love
We are a raging ocean
An erupting super-volcano
We are smart and cunning
Always have a motive
To win, to enrich ourselves
For better or worse
We are greedy and exuberant
Striving for power and riches
For titles and acknowledgments
For possession and control
Worship the lust, which is our love
Attach ourselves firmly to the world
On things and people
Create wishes upon wishes
We are a serpent with thousands of heads
Medusa, a changing face
A spectrum of feelings, emotions
In shades and grades
We have chameleon-like thoughts
Deceive the owner
Lead her astray
Wrapping her in illusions
We, the five thieves…

The owner? – The soul…

Counteract Craziness


 

 

Allowing craziness in our national worlds
Is a lack of deeds and words…

If a crazy man leads
It requires actions and deeds…

Fear, ignorance, and laziness
Will lead to craziness

Do and live wisely for others and yourself…

Egoism has a face


 

 

There are people with extinct light
In their eyes and hearts
They embody greed and selfishness
Are the closest to themselves
Walk over corpses for an advantage
They order, they command
See others as a means to their purpose
Seek for power and influence
Want to control, determine
Have a heart made of stone
Are possessed by their possessions
Watch lurking over their “achieved things “

They don’t know how poor they are…

Spoilt world


 

 

Power dictates what is good
What is bad
What is in fashion
What meaning one should have

Manipulation throughout the world
With money ruling along
Tailored egos, minds
Smell of egoistic ideals

Baits attract the mind
Packed in wishes
To bind attention
Injection of deceptive dreams

Confused people – victims of the system
Walk about with greedy eyes
Coloured in blood-red
Lustfully gaze through eyes hypnotized

Pink sky filled with endless wishes
Screaming market – ecstasy
Of more and more
Better and higher

Lost ideals sink in these clouds
Swamp of decadence
Battle between winners and losers
Heads falling down like leaves

Listen searcher of the truth
Keep your ideals high
And lead a life in light
Be a beacon in the night…

Cold as ice


cold as ice

 

Is it clever – to appear clever
And to be paid for it?

Is it clever – to speculate on people
And benefit from them?

Is it clever – to propagate truth
And to hide the lie

Is it clever – to help
And to bath in generousity?

Is it clever – to take
Instead of sharing, giving?

Cleverness that selfishly uses others
Is cold and has no heart

Exploitation


 

In their minds
Prevails an ice-cold principle:
“To get the maxium
For a minimum”

Blindly they are oriented
Towards money and power
While tears flowing unseen
From a forgotten heart

The carusell of speculation
Turns faster and faster
Squeezing blood and life
From more and more people

Outwardly they may be rich
But inwardly they are very poor
Running thoughtlessly
After their business

If we want a change in the world
We have to begin with ourselves
And listen to our heart
The music of harmony

Virus: Ego and Mind


 

 

Ego and mind of a man
Is like a virus
It needs a host
To multiply his power through:

Money, selfishness, pride, greed,
Attachment – packed in wishes

Detachment is the solution

Even from oneself
To be one…Self…

This virus is spreading around the world
May we all find a serum against it
