Everything belongs to God


 

When we belong to God
Then all things belong to Him
Which “belong” to us

Even our body, mind and soul
Belongs to Him
Is part of His creation

As He is One
And nothing exists
Without Him

So we are just administrators
Of everything He has given us:
Lent life

So we are and are not
At the same time
Depending on our point of view…

Should not we then
Become more humble?
Instead of saying: “I” and “mine”?…

Modesty and humbleness


 

Modesty and humbleness
Are the remedies for
Good, better – arrogant syndroms

If we compare ourselves with others
This syndrom may begin its run…

There is a bridge


 
 

 

Nothing they know about each other
Life puts a fense between them

A full stomach speaks a different language
Than an empty one…

However, there is one food which does not differentiate:
Food for the soul, sunshine for everyone…

Accept or reject


 

All what is good for us we accept
All what we consider bad for us we reject
However, often it turns out later
That it was good medicine for us

How many times
We misunderstood it
How many times
We missed this opportunity…

Kabir and King Ibrahim: story about ego/pride and humbleness


 

 

Story told by Sant Kirpal Singh in His book “The light of Kirpal”

 

Ibrahim was a Saint, he was a king who left his kingdom and came to Kabir, lived with Him for three, four years. He was quite obedient and did not ask for anything. Whatever was given to him he would eat. He would do whatever he was told to do, like a bought slave. So Loi, the mother of the house, told Kabir, “Well, he is quite ready, will You give him something now?” And Kabir told her, “No, his vessel is not yet ready.” She said, “What more is wanted? He is very obedient; he does not say anything; whatever you give him, he eats; he never grumbles.” “All right, tomorrow morning when he goes out of the door of the house, you put all of the refuse of the house into a basket and throw it over his head. Then, listen to what he says.” Next morning when Ibrahim went out of the house, Loi put all the house refuse over his head. Ibrahim said, “Now! Had this been Bokhara . . .” (He was the king of Bokhara, you see), “this would not have been.” His ego was still there . . . “I am a great man living at His door.” When she told Kabir, He said, “1 told you, his vessel is not yet ready.” Then some years passed. He remained there for more than ten years. Then one day Kabir said, “Now the vessel is ready.” Loi said, “There is no difference outwardly.” [Kabir:] “All right, tomorrow morning when he goes out, just throw all of the night waste over his head.” The next morning she did so. Ibrahim said, “God, I am worse than that.” And Kabir said, “Didn’t I tell you? He’s now ready, you see.”

 

 

 

Thankfulness each moment


 

Thankfulness is devotion
Contains humbleness
Knows respect
Accepts
Even pain
Rain in life
Has no conditions
Is no business
Just pure trust

Thankfulness in the heart
To be near to you
To walk with you, Father God
Life of our life
