Outside Shining – Inside Fouling

 

 

How many angles and corners are there in us
Where chaos and disorder reign
Where dirt accumulates
Dust is setting down?

How many impurities are in us
Which we have neglected
Falling into oblivion
Where no external soap helps?

On the outside nice and clean
Well-groomed appearance among witnesses
Inside without hygiene
There’ s no one watching

But inner dirt
Moves motives on the outside
Hidden, concealed
Determines our thoughts, actions.

Our internal residence
Like a mirror:
What is inside is outside
What is outside is inside

We should be dust and germ-free
That the inner dirt
Does not become external dirt
With the soap of innocence and honesty

We cannot hide from ourselves nor from God…

Peace begins with oneself

Only if we succeed
In making peace with ourselves
We can pass it on to the world

Deplorable creatures

There are people
They walk over dead bodies
Just to reach their goal
They have no conscience

Their evil deeds emerge from the dark
They are cunning, have no scruples
Threaten and even kill
If someone is in their way

They practice propaganda
Distort facts in their favour
Are power-hungry and obsessed
To get their way

They are ice-cold strategists
Who plan long ahead
Waiting for their hour
To strike unpredictably

They play, they poker, they provoke
Enjoy their power
Direct others, seek challenge
Use people for their delusions of grandeur

They are clever people
But without a heart
Without respect for man and life
If only they could see themselves….

A question of conscience

Is it you who contributes to the chaos in the world?

Who rashly takes sides
Who is easily influenced
Who hides responsibility behind bogus reasons
Who spreads disinformation in the society
Who fanatically clings to baseless ideas
Who thinks that his intentions are good and positive
Who does not admit his mistake, does not see it
Who sows disharmony around himself
Who carries violence in his thoughts
Who is not honest with himself
Who denies himself to these question

Who lacks the power of discrimination, the inner voice?

Honest protests?

We are all affected
By the Coronavirus spread around the world
But there are people
They don’t wear masks, see no reason for it
They protest against restrictions

When we were little
Vaccinations were the order of the day
It was normal to be vaccinated
Protests did not rise
We didn’t have the media

Today we have social media
Alongside the traditional media
Today the internet dominates
Fakes and hoaxes everywhere
Influence from all sides

Today’s man does not know
Where to stand
What to believe
So he blindly accepts this and that
Is easily persuaded

Conspiracy theorists, lateral thinkers come into play
They replace doctors and scientists with their opinions
Know the truth, are fanatical
Don’t get vaccinated – that’s still ok
What is not ok is that they do not wear masks

Is it bad to wear a mask
When it protects others?
Not to wear it is irresponsible
Shows the colour of our mind, our ego
We should see the reality in the intensive care units….

Maybe one of us is the next
That the virus will strike
But then our remorse may come too late
In case to die from it
Or get seriously ill

When the bitter realization awakens:
To have protested hiddenly behind half-truths,
To cover up our own ego
To make ourselves look good in front of others
When the wave of truth overtakes us….

Is service to man a foreign word?

May right understanding take its place in our hearts….

Lost by ignorance

As long as we live in ignorance
We cannot be honest with ourselves
What matters is the point of view:
Right understanding
Water and bread of our soul

Discover own mistakes for the benefit of others

Why is it that we have so many faults in us
That we are not even aware of them?
That we do not even know them?
And even when we know them, we carry on as before
Without questioning ourselves
Without starting to eliminate them

This is why we see the evil in the world
As long as our mind can do what it likes
Without making serious efforts to unravel these faults
To make ourselves conscious of them
To learn from them, overcome them

A state full of these unconscious people
Who do not know themselves
Out of it, these errors become visible
This is what we see in the world….

Sant Kirpal Singh:
“Reformers are needed, not of others but of themselves…”

Hidden truth

Truth cannot be measured
With a worldly limited view
But it rests hidden in all of us

Honesty is a milestone to it
Longing is the driving force
Receptivity the connection

DidiArtist, 12.12.2021

Closed eyes

We close our eyes to ourselves
Thus do not know ourselves

An open inner eye
That is the meaning of spirituality…

A Question of trust

How trustworthy can the Internet be
When man does not even know his own mistakes?

Mistakes are spreading
According to the mistakes coming from the source…


DidiArtist, 30.01.2022

Missing consciousness and honesty

One must first have recognized one’s own mistakes,
Only then one can start to change
However, how much blindness is in us
Not to recognize most of them…

Deceiving ourselves

 

 

Just because we do not experience something
That other people may experience
That they are lying, telling the untruth

Often the truth is hidden
When we live it, experience it
This treasure comes to light…

Gossip at its highest level

 

 

The silent post of social media
Provides Fake News and Conspiracy Theories…

DidiArtist, 09.04.2021

 
 

Note: “Silent Post” is a game in which one whispers a word to another person, this person has to forward this word to his neigbhour, also whispering that others may not hear it – and when many people join this game, the last person has to tell this word openly. So you can imagine that the word in the round has changed totally at the end of the game…

 

Fallen into a swamp

The deeper you struggle in the swamp
The deeper you sink…

The one lie
Turns into a thousand…

Leading People through Humanity

 

 

Is it not contradictory
To be rich and lead a nation?

One cannot lead people only through money
But through humanity…

Prayer from the heart

The helpless cry of the soul
Is the prayer that is heard….

Ignorance and speculations

Many lies originate
From the foundation of ignorance
They spread like wild fire…

Our biggest problem

 

 

Our biggest problem:
We are not true
To ourselves
Then how can we be true
To others?
Let alone to God?

Let us be certain:
Our mind tries
To stand always in between

Let us understand
How this mind works…

It is like a snake:
When we think we caught it
It slips through our fingers
And bites us again…

Honesty is one
Of our strongest weapon

However, it needs to enter our consciousness…

Blessed are the pure in heart

 

 

We say that we love God
But we do not even obey all his commandments
Are not willing to lay down our dirt within us
Are not even aware of our dirt

Where is he who is pure in heart….?

If we do not even lay down our dirt here,
So we think we can lay it down in “heaven”?

A great self-deception…

God helps those who help themselves….

When we take a step forward towards God
God will approach us with a thousand steps

Sant Kirpal Singh: “Reformers are needed, not of others, but of themselves.”

Ghandi: “If you wish to see a change in the world, be the change…”

“Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they shall see God.” – (Matthew 5:8)

Facing the consequences

 
power and control
 

Within us there is the gate to God
As well as the gate to hell
Good and evil in alternation
Cycle of good and evil
Blood for good
Blood for evil
Deeds and thoughts flow
In these streams
Divide, constantly in battle
At the end there is a reckoning
The path is drawn…

Self-cheating

 

 

Not seldom do we things
With veiled motives
Hiding dully us from ourselves
From our consciousness
To remain unrecognized
In the shadow of other motives
So we ignore the true intentions
Living with a lie in front of ourselves
Not knowing this self-cheating
Feeling even good
Within these second-hand motives…

Greed for power

 


 

Up to the highest echelons
Bargaining for power
Power struggles, corruptions
Maintaining power, expanding power
At any price
Paid with lives
Play God and the world
They do not know that they are lost

Have lost their souls…
