Selfless Service – by Sant Kirpal Singh


An excerpt from the book: “Morning Talks” by Sant Kirpal Singh

 

 

Selfless service is done in two ways. The first way is physical service. If somebody is sick, go and serve him. Shall I see somebody in need, hungry, naked, poor fellow? The Masters have always been for the poor, for the needy, to console them, to raise them up to the level of every man. If we do that, if everyone would share with others, there would be no poor in the world. Why are men so needy and hungry? Because we don’t share. So by sharing with others, our self expands. At the very moment of giving you feel a little joy within. That is the compensation you get, direct. But whenever you give, don’t give with the hope that you will have a return. Give for the sake of sharing with others. Sometimes we give for the reward that we will get in heaven. This is not the way, selfless giving is what is needed. This is one of the qualifications for one who would like to progress on the Spiritual way. So he is a man, who lives for others, who shares with others, with the needy, with the hungry, with those who are in very poor circumstances and cannot go on. What do we do? We feed our children very richly, while the children of our neighbours die of hunger. This is not what is wanted.

One of the Mohammedan saints, who happened to be a lady, once prepared to go to Mecca on pilgrimage. Mecca is a place of pilgrimage for Mohammedans and is located in Arabia. She had some money for the journey and as she was about start, she noticed some poor, hungry fellow in the neighbourhood. She gave away everything to him and so was not able to go to the place of pilgrimage. What was the result? An angel appeared to her and said that her pilgrimage had been accepted. You follow what is meant? The man who lives on his own earnings, earned by the sweat of his brow, honestly, and who shares with others, such a man only is fit to progress on the Spiritual way. Give not for the sake of compensation or return. Give for the sake of sharing with others. That is your duty towards your brothers and sisters.

A mother, whose children are hungry, will take out a morsel from her own mouth and give it to the children. She does not care for any return. So help others with that angle of vision, with that spirit. We give sometimes for show. That is only for name and fame. That charity is no charity. Christ said, “If one hand gives, the other hand should not know”. If one hand gives something, let not your other hand know about it. So this is what is meant by charity.

 

 

Do not think evil of others – by Sant Kirpal Singh


 

An excerpt from the book: “Morning Talks” – by Sant Kirpal Singh

 

 

Once Akbar, who was a great Emperor of India, was told by his minister that thoughts were very potent and that great care should be taken in what we think of others. Akbar asked his minister how he knew this. The minister said, “All right, I will give you a concrete example. Let us go outside.” So both of them went outside and they saw one man coming towards them at a distance of a few furlongs. The minister said to the king, “Look here, just think something about this man in your mind and when he comes near, you might ask him what crossed his mind at that time. You are only to look and think.” The king thought in his mind that this man should be shot. The man approached the king and the king asked him, “When you saw my face, what thoughts crossed your mind?” The man said, “Emperor, excuse me, but I thought that I should beat you with my fists and break your head.” So thoughts are very potent. If you think evil of others, the other man will react. You should be careful how you speak to people. If you speak ill to another and say “You are a fool” and things like that, or if somebody calls you a name and you react in the same way, what is the result? There will be a flare-up. A man calls you once, twice and that results in a fight. This is by words, their very root is the thought. A man speaks out of the abundance of his heart. Whatever is lying there, those things take the form of words, then words lead to fighting. So don’t hurt the feelings of others, in thought, word or deed.

 

 

Believe in the heart


 

Tears in my heart,
Reflecting in the sun,
Smoothly carry life.
Flowers in the air,
Coloured in the breath.

You, the light ,
The path in moments,
Hand in hand,
To follow heart,
A rose of my life,
A dance of souls

Fountain of my happiness,
Life in my life,
How quickly a man can fall
On the edge of a mountain
With the wrong choice
That mind has suggested

Tears in my heart,
Listen to it,
And truth reveals;
For mind is blind,
Lost in the moment.

Listen to your heart
And feel the true colours
The rainbow touching you
Believe in the heart
Not in the mind
A fool of black and white

Message of goodwill


 

 

Usually we have good thoughts for our dear ones
Let us widen our horzont
To give room for the whole world
For good thoughts, words and deeds to everyone

A message that should go
From heart to heart
Torchbearer of light
To bring love in every house

No more violent thoughts
No more harsh words
But kindness and love
Respect and goodwill

Or do we want to be a mirror
Of our bad thoughts?…

Courage and strength


 

 

My dear friends all over the world
Life is a roller-coaster
We smile and are happy in good times
And we mourn and cry in bad times

When misfortune knocks at our door
Lets remember to be a beacon
For all lost ships in darkness
In doing so we overcome our own pain

Service and help are the features of light
To give and share unconditionally
To fight poverty and desparation
To bring people on their feet again

Words of hope can encourage
Deeds may reach lost hearts
Enlight their sad fate
To regain forgotten smiles

Let us put our heads and hearts together
Our hands in mutual service and help
To bring courage and strength
To those who suffer

Noone is foreign to us
We are all brothers and sister in Him
We all are one family – human beings…

Appeal to all adults


 
 


 

Hello, adults all over the world
Adopt the attitude of the children
They have no borders to each other
No skin-colour that separates them

They do not threaten themselves
To kill each other
They speak and play in tune with their heart
Never get apart

Hello, adults all over the world
Children are our future, our love
Not our destruction, but our hope
Living innocence, colour of nativeness

Children know only one language:
The language of the heart
Understanding among each other
Originality lost in grown-ups

Hello, adults all over the world
Burry your weapons and be like a child
Put your heads and hearts together
To save the human race from perishing

We all are sitting in the same school
We have much to learn from our children…

Quote: How to develop love for God or for the competent Master (mouth-piece of God) – By Sant Kirpal Singh Ji


 
Excerpt from the book: “Morning talks” – By Sant Kirpal Singh
 

 
Guru Har Govind said that whoever should recite from the Jap Ji with no other thought intervening during the time that the verse was being recited, would be given his heart’s desire. One man came forward and said that he would recite. He began reciting and just before he was nearing the end, he thought to himself, “I wonder what the Guru will give me?” He remembered the Arabian horse that had been given to the Guru and thought that it should be given to him. When he completed the recitation, the Guru ordered that the horse be given to him. He then turned to the man and said, “You poor fellow, you did not know what I was going to give you . I was going to give you my very own place.” So it is not for you to judge things and request what you want, but it is for Him to see what is really in your best interests. How can you develop love? First, just develop those attributes which are in the Master. If He is a good painter, then develop painting. If He is a good singer, then develop singing. Our Master used to have wells dug for the good of the people at large. So those people than began to dig wells for Him and He was pleased. He wanted selfless servants who would never utter any word to Him about what they were doing for the Master. He was a very plain spoken man. Those who went to Him and said, “Master, I have committed this or that sin,” He would say, “All right,” and forgive them. But those who concealed their shortcomings from Him would lose out. When we go to the Master, we simply think that He does not know anything. But at the heart of hearts He knows what you say. As I was telling you yesterday, just like something in a glass jar, He sees what is in us. Even if you try to conceal it, He still sees. So we should go to the Master with very clean hearts, with love for Him, with all due deference for Him. Then naturally, He will give His own Self to you. So this is how we can develop love for the Master, for the God in Him. The attributes that He has developed in Him, you should try and develop in you. What are they? He wants love, no show, strict obedience to what He says. Once He says something, obey Him. Obey Him literally. While developing these things you will all the time be having the sweet remembrance of the Master within and also outwardly. It is for the Master to see what He has to give. He has come only to give Life. He has no other business. He is Life, Light and Love. He can give you these qualities only when you have become receptive and there is nothing that stands between you and Him. The attributes of God are reflected in Him. If you just adopt those attributes in your own life, then you will be loved by the Master and by the God in Him. As Christ said, “Those who love me, will be loved by my Father, and whom my Father loves, I manifest myself to him”. All Masters have said the same thing.
 
 

Gate to a new dawn


 

Scared time
Wounds in the night
Bleeding past
With little light

Searching for happiness
Peaceful understanding
Living dreams
Side by side

Forward in looking
To feel the freedom
In the presence
In deep thankfulness

Thirst in the desert
For drops of love
Ready to still a heart
In the dawn of light

Deceived and fooled


 

 

You led me to the market of the world
Bazaar of trade and desires
You showed me treasures
Beauties, attractions

No breath without show
Attention without direction
I got stuck in my senses
Deceived by the splendour of the world

You came with promises
To find everlasting happiness
But your happiness is bound
At the post of time

Everything passes like sand blown away
And you still say:
This is my home, my wealth of the world
Yes, it is your house, built on sand

You pretend: eternal happiness
Eternal home that falls apart in your hands
Breaks to empty illusions
You deceive, seduce, kidnap

The truth is not outside
It is within me
That you trample all over
With lies besmeared

You live for my death
Though you get all the strength from me
You go the way out
And not the way in

You are my constant companion
Shadow of my light
You control, you direct
Set directions

Time to change roles
Since you are a bad master
But a good servant
So follow me, my mind…

Labyrinth of mind


 

We get lost in ourselves
Stuck in questions
Answers in speculations
Fight for point of views

We speak much
With empty words
We appear with masks
With fear in tasks

We run after pleasures
To keep us entertained
We talk about love and happiness
And lose us in words

Let the silence speak
Arising from the heart
Where no food is given
To the labyrinth of mind

Two seekers after truth went to… story by Sant Kirpal Singh


 

 

Excerpt from the small book: “What is a true Satsangi”

Two seekers after truth went to a Master to be put on the way. What did he do? He gave them two pigeons and told them, “Go to some place where nobody will see you and kill them.” One man went out behind a wall, killed the pigeon and came back: “Master, I’ve killed it. There was nobody there.” The other poor fellow was hunting, knocking about from place to place, in many secret places, many lonely places, from morn to night. He could not find any place where nobody was seeing him. He came back: “Master, I’m helpless. I could not find any place where nobody was seeing me.” – “Who was it?” He said, “The very pigeon was seeing me.” When he went to kill, it looked at him. It was God in him. Just think. These are very simple things, but they are pregnant with meaning.

God resides in every heart. He also resides in you. He is watching our every action. Similarly, God in man, the Master, also looks to our shortcomings, but he does so lovingly. He wants to wash them away. So always remain in his presence. That is why Kabir said, “When the Master initiates you (Master is not the body; it is the Godpower working in him), he resides with you forever.” One thing: He is always present. Can you do any sin, tell lies, deceive others, act or pose? No.

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…

Dreaming reality


 

Often a dream
Is an anchor
Island in a cruel world
To rest in ourselves
With hopes on painted time
To let us breath
Fantasy
Plaster on wounds

A flight in ourselves
Where no hand can steal
To live in rainbow colours
Spilling gold to ends
A handful happiness
A dream alive
Caressed heart
Invisible touch

Awoke from dreams
In grey reality
Where freedom lives alone
With a dream exploded
In splitting feelings
To taste stale moments
Fading pulse
Losing hands

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…

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

Well of the heart


 

Mind, self-reflecting sound
Hardly bears the silence
It comes with fear and doubts
Performing violence

In the well of the heart
The smile of sunshine always there
Is never far from you, apart
But comes with light and care

The mind may cry
To touch an empty wish
And feels so dry
Without the conquered dish

When mind is finally so still
It enters silent places
No longer in its will
But follows inner traces

So be in sunshine, not in doubt
Aware of inner voice
Embraced by light and sound
Without the worldly noise
