Qualities of Love


 

 

Selfless service
Unconditional giving and sharing
Deep sincerity
Yearning to be One
In the garden of love

Thinking of the Beloved
Heart-filling, permanently
With true devotion
Rays of sunlight
Turning into sunshine

Two hearts become one
Adopt the colour of unity
Smell of roses and jasmine
Timeless togetherness
Life in love

In thankfulness to God
My love to Him
As He resides
In all and everything
To love God in everyone…

Solidary Lies


 

 

Belonging to a party
Should not be a free ticket
For joining a concert of lies

Not the lie from your mouth
Should speak, should rise
Just to show solidarity
Truth and warning conscience
Should be your driving force…

Political testimony: Excellent!


 
 

 
 

He, as a political leader, never lies
He always speaks the truth
He never points his finger at others
He does not make fun of others
He radiates peace and serenity
He insults nobody and is always polite
He does not seek the faults of others
He never twists the words
He is reliable and predictable
He is a living example for everyone
He never shows weaknesses
He is very educated, shares his knowledge with others
He is always humble and modest
He never speaks nonsense
He regularly pays a lot of taxes
He never praises himself, the others do
He promises many things and keeps his word
He is there for everyone and is unselfish for himself
He never exaggerates, underestimates

How nice that we have such leaders
Our world will definitely become better as a result

Political backdoors


 

 

When laws are broken by several people
One speaks of accomplices
Can an entire party be considered as accomplices?

Sad, but true, if members prevent real justice
If they decide as majority
What is right and what is wrong…

Then there must be something wrong in the system
Leaving them a backdoor open to sustain their power
To prevent the truth to come on the table…

The five cardinal virtues of spirituality – by Sant Kirpal Singh


 

An excerpt from the book: “Crown of life” – written by Sant Kirpal Singh

 

To cultivate and develop the five cardinal virtues which constitute the bedrock of spirituality.

These are:
1. Ahimsa or Non-injury to all living creatures, and more so to fellow beings, by thoughts, words and deeds the injunction in this behalf being: Injure not a human heart for it is the seat of God. We must have respect for others feelings and tolerance for others opinions.

2. Satayam or Truthfulness: As God is Truth, we must practice Truth in all our dealings. If Truth resides in every heart, it must manifest itself in life and action. Be true to thyself and it must follow as night the day, thou canst not be false to any man. We must therefore avoid falsehood at all costs. It includes, besides downright lies, hypocrisy and dishonesty, suppresso veri [suppression of truth], and suggestio falsi [suggestions of false ideas].

3. Brahmcharya or life of Chastity: It includes continence in thoughts, words and deed-houghts within, for Chastity is life and sexuality is death. If we want to tread the Path of Life Eternal, we must be chaste and clean both within and without.

4. Prem or love for all living creatures and more so for all human beings. Let there be hatred for none. The entire manifestation is the handiwork of God and must therefore be loved and respected. He who does not know love, cannot know God.

5. Nishkam Seva or Selfless Service to all living creatures in sorrow and distress. If one limb of the body is in torture, the other limbs can have no rest. Service before self should therefore be our motto in life.

 

 

 

 

Becoming aware of own mistakes


       

When we put our mistakes
Before our inner eyes
Honestly and self-critically
Then we become aware of them
To avoid them in future…

Our giving “likes”


 

Do we give a like
To get a like?

Do we give a like
With unsure feelings?

Do we give a like
With fast fingers?

Do we give a like
Because of sympathy?

Do we give a like
To bloggers preferred?

Do we give a like
To be liked?

Do we give a like
Because of true feelings?

To give a like in honesty
Without pretending?

Whatever motives – of any kind
To find the reason there behind
To make us just aware
Did we play or were we fair…

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…

Missing honesty


 

 

How much nonsense goes out into the world
Out of stupidity, ignorance
Acting and posing
Out of greed for power, money, reputation
To achieve advantages
By a selfish attitude
To be better than others
To instill arrogance
Overconfidence
Dripping vanity
Condemnation
Unfair usage of elbows

Let us see the good in people
Because bad things create bad things
While good things sow good things

Therefore, we have to be more honest with ourselves…

Justification and confirmation


 

In the labyrinth of life
Dead ends are entered
With pride as a drive
Manipulated, mentored

False sights ensnared
In the light of others
Confirmed, impaired
Trap for sisters, brothers

A barb in the heart
To spread illusion
Mind of the art
Black blood infusion

Houses built on sandy grounds
With bricks of charming words
That leave the truth in wounds
To raise illusive worlds

Flattered ways prepared
Where feet are lost
With filth besmeared
The light in frost

Dressed in uniforms
Following the cross
Of worn out norms
In ignorance and loss

A chorus of praise
Along the sky
A costly price
So why…?

Journey to become honest and pure


 

 

To be honest
Is a matter of consciousness
To know our own mistakes
A process – walking into the depth

It is easy to say: “I am honest”
How many things we have overseen
Have not considered as honesty, dishonesty
In our daily life?

Yes, I am honest according of what I know
About my present state of mind
Present knowledge of myself
But what about the ignorance of myself?

Then I have missed many things
To consider as honesty, dishonesty
So walking in ourselves
Is to discover, to know ourselves – more and more…

What I claimed yesterday as honesty
May be today under a broadened horizon
So we bear honesty on our shoulders
To get lighter and lighter from ourselves…

The more we find us
The more we lose us
Detached from the world and even ourselves
To become pure in our hearts…

Courage to admit own mistakes


 

 

Sometimes we are not aware
Of the consequences of our words and deeds
When we notice them,
Often it is already too late…
Then we get stuck in our own pride

With courage and confession
To be responsible for own mistakes
The rudder can still be pulled around

So we have to make peace with ourselves
To be in peace with others…

It is never too late for that…

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…
