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…

Born in a day of light
Life paves it way
Along pearls of years
Given by God

Deep thankfulness remains
In the heart
For mother and father
Giving life though oneness

Each year a candle is lit
In our heart and spirit
For life is given
Celebration of our being

Let us use this being
To be in harmony with everyone
Then our birthday is a celebration
For all of us…

Light and Darkness


 

In light there is no darkness
In darkness there is no light
We often jump from light to shadow
And from shadow to light
According to our jumping mind

To stay in light
Thoughts need to be bright
Be sunshine
For no mine and thine
To empty our ego
With buckets of shadows
To fill the vacuum with light divine
To make us pure and fine

Darkness flees
When light is coming
Stars embrace the moment
Happiness bestowment
Open hearts with inner keys

Gilded silence


 

Silent is the mouth
While heart is trembling
Talking with light:
Vibration

Stream of muted voices
Flowing in each other
Receiving, sending
Stars in exchange

Fantasy touched
By ripples
Heart drops
Falling

Invisible touch
Warmly hugs
Woven in echos
Heart reflections

From heart to heart


 

I have lost my mouth
The tongue got stuck
Where bubbles of words
Used to spring up

My language is silence
Meeting and space
Beyond mind and senses
Enveloped touches

My heart speaks in riddles
Symbolic hieroglyphs
That only hearts can read
To follow just its traces

Stars are sparkling
And so is my heart
Singing through eternity:
We are in unity

DidiArtist, 07.04.2017

 

Wind of eternity


Wind of eternity
Touches the heart
Morning dew
Hidden silence

Light coats the eye
with rays of sunlight
Inner journey
Embracing meeting

Time flows along
From heavenly mountains
Metamorphosis
Kaleidoscopic Life

Thoughts are splitting
Waking up illusions
Into unreal films
A break of the middle

Wind of eternity
Untouching touched
Dancing in the heart
Kidnapped by the light

Rolling tears


 

 

Shedding tears express
Joy and sorrow
Are invisible words
Living experience
Water of life

Tears wash and clean
Pain and heart
Are talking pearls
Stories of ups and downs
Innermost feelings

Tears flow from the depth
Sing a sad or joyful song
Invite for compassion
Deep empathy
Is understood wordlessly

Tears are touching
Leaving a trail
Salt of the soul
Infect warm hearts
To strech out hands, embrace…

Tears – language of the soul

Compassion


 

 

Tears fill the sky
Of millions of crying hearts
Each of them walking
Through dark times

Oceans full of bloody tears
Lose their voice in storms
Lost fates, drowned screams
In the ocean of life

Such voices whisper in my heart
Need someone to listen
A ray of sunshine
To warm their broken hearts

With the prayer of my heart
May all who suffer in deep pain
Detach from darkness, tormenting states
To take a bath in light

My tears accompany you
With showers of hope
Rain of good wishes
To wash away your pain

You are not alone, my friend
Your pain is felt
Your voice heard
In the depth of my heart

My answer, dear brother, sister:
Love and light to you
Rise above agony
Seize courage, a new beginning…

May the ray of my love
Reach your heart
Give some solace
And be a lamp in the night…

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…

Language of the heart
Never be apart
Compassion spiced
Spreading like Christ
Scent of unity

Egofree life
Without selfish styles
Self-made strife
But heartful smiles
Odour of pure heart
Inner food, divine art

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…
