We are ignorants

How many things do we think and do
Out of ignorance?

How many things do we falsify
Out of ignorance?

Ignorance is the cause
Of our ego and mind

The world is full of ignorants…

The perennial nagger

 

 

His characteristics:
He knows everything better
Criticizes everything
Knows an answer to all questions
Speaks ill of others
To take a bath in the limelight
His hobbies:
He judges and condemns

Spares himself
Without nagging
Because he is not aware
Of himself and his doings

May he find the road of life
In humbleness and respect…

Intelligence without heart

People of power only think
By not looking beyond the range
Of their own limited horizon

A foresight that we are all one
Does not occur in their thoughts
In their strategic planning games

They want to be smart
But have no head in their hearts…

Painful Understanding

 

 

Only a deep pain breaks through
The wall of our ignorance…

Self-introspection

 

 

If we don’t look at ourselves in the mirror
To find the original reflection of it
Then we cannot see us either
Do not know who we are
What we are
Where we come from
Where we have to go…

Then the purpose of life
Is covered by our ignorance…

Man know thyself…

Oneness is the Goal

 

 

Many roads lead to that one way
Differences flow into equality
Merge into oneness

Where they touch each other
The world is parting
Between death and life

Like an hourglass through time and space
From illusion to reality…

Knowledge and Ignorance

 

 

What we don’t know
We ignore
What we know
We sell as omniscient…

What we don’t know
We reject, compensate with know-it-all
Enveloped in our pride
An intellectual fight

With no light
Just tight in mind…

Food for the mind

 

 

Power of discrimination is needed
To know what is what

Out of laziness, tradition, ignorance
We follow truth where it finds majority
Easily convinced and persuaded
Leaving things unchecked

Thus throw everything in one pot
Stir truth and untruth
Mix them together
Sell them as truth

Result: A dish of half-truths
Food for the mind…

We need a good stomach
To digest such inconsistencies…

SPIRITUAL HEALING, BLACK MAGIC adds strong fetters over the soul – DR. HARBHAJAN SINGH

Ego and Pride

He who considers himself a good person
Ego and pride speak from him
Usually, he is unaware of it….

Self-Introspection

 

 

If we don’t look at ourselves in the mirror

Do not know who we are

Then the purpose of life
Is covered by our ignorance…

Man know thyself…

Short-sightedness

The short-sightedness of man
Limited to a few moments
Is the reason for his/her fatal effects….

DidiArtist, 30.09.2021

Violence only leads to violence

Any violence in our heads
Points to our own person
That something is wrong

There is no excuse for violence
It only exposes our own weaknesses

Eye for an eye
Tooth for a tooth
Does not help at all

Violence only sows violence
However, love sows love…

DidiArtist, 01.02.2022

Fast prejudices

Through misjudgment and ignorance
We condemn all too quickly

We should learn
Not to condemn and judge at all

We should be our own judge…

DidiArtist, 28.11.2021

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….

DidiArtist, 01.12.2021

Have we forgotten how to differentiate?

Do human rights go so far
To put human lives at risk
Just because it is a matter of self-interest?

When individuals do not submit
To the welfare of all in peaceful coexistence
Not to see personal views represented
Does it then violate human rights?

It violates them only then,
If one’s own view becomes irresponsible
Towards other people
Knowingly or unknowingly
By their decisions
Putting the life and limb of others at risk

In the past, it was the smoker
Who forced his smoke on his fellow human beings
Today it is the mask refuser
Who see their freedom restricted
To decide for themselves

They do not see themselves as a risk
To infect others with Corona
As long as they are not infected themselves
They see only themselves
Not the other…

They say: it is then my death
Not the death of others
Not admitting that there is a risk
Bringing death to others
Without mask protection, without social distancing

They insist on their opinion
Whether with or without a mask
With or without distance
The result is the same for them
In doing so they are subject to a terrible error

They are people who think more of themselves
Rather than on the welfare of others
So-called rebels, lateral thinkers
Who hide behind their own ego

If I knew the mask only protected one percent
Then I know that I can protect at least one person out of 100…

Even that is better than
Exposing oneself and others
To a deadly uncontrolled danger
Without doing anything against it

So is my personal opinion
Not to consider it necessary
To wear a mask, to keep a distance
More important than the possible danger
To infect others (let alone oneself)?

DidiArtist, 02.12.2021

Wrong orientation

Our view depends on our knowledge,
On our ignorance
But often enough we pretend
As if we know certain subjects
Hiding our gaps in knowledge
Behind titles, reputations, and names
Selling false or inadequate knowledge

Result: The world is fed with wrong knowledge…

DidiArtist, 03.12.2021

Fearing death – yes or no?

When someone says he is not afraid of dying
How can he say it if he has not died yet?

Actually, this person shows his hidden fear with it
He gives himself courage, even if he is afraid of death

Our ignorance makes us say things
That we don’t know until we experience it ourselves.

We reassure ourselves and want to stand brave
Especially when we say it in front of others, needing witnesses

There is a way to experience death
Even if you are still alive, it is a practical experience

Meditation that goes beyond body consciousness
Where soul rises to the eye focal point, traveling from there to inner worlds

It is the Surat Shabd yoga practiced by all competent Masters
That leads beyond death

St. Paul said, “I die daily…”

Guru Nanak said, “Learn to die a hundred times a day…”

He who knows death no longer fears….

Death, where is your victory? / Death, where is your sting?

DidiArtist, 03.12.2021

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

Wounded pride

 

 

How it is possible to understand higher mathematics
If the foundation is missing…

On how many misunderstandings do we build our knowledge
And hold on tight to it…

Then when hearing the truth
We cannot accept it and are offended…

We prefer ignorance and old habits
Instead of questioning them…

It is our pride to admit
That we made mistakes…

Because everything that is in fashion seems right to us
Inducing us to do our best to copy everything…

Well, we’re more sheep than we think
If a sheep runs into the fire
Then all the others run after it…

Who can handle the truth…?

DidiArtist, 16.07.2020

 
 

Lacking knowledge

Ignorance and half-truths become entrenched
Into error and false knowledge

How often are these half-truths sold as truth….

DidiArtist, 02.12.2021

Fear and ignorance

We defend our point of view
And equate it
With the point of view of others
Without knowing it

It is a protective measure
To continue to go in the direction
That brings us joy and sorrow
Worldly pleasures, disappointments

It is our pride and ego
Not allowing us
To accept another point of view
That rises above doubt and ignorance

It is the trust in the old familiar
Fear of the new way
Fear of having made a mistake
Which is difficult to overcome

For as long as we do not really know something
We do not grant this knowledge to another person
We feel hurt
When new truths oppress us

It is not the knowledge of being better
Compared to other lifestyles
It is a knowledge of humility, not of boasting
What we see normally in the world

Knowledge of practice is required, not theory
Where all the world theorises
Not realising how to live the truth
Instead, faith is followed blindly – in ignorance

It is our lack
Longing for the truth
Leading it through muddy grounds
Instead of living, experiencing it for ourselves

We run after fashion
Do not question it
Do not know its impact, essence
Blindly follow our herd instinct

Ignorance is our biggest problem
Build truth on half-truth, ignorance
And defend our point of view
As if it were the truth…

Truth is beyond fashion, beyond herd instinct
It has no will to offend
But only to be true
It is in the hands of God

God offers it to us
But we reject it
Choose the way of worldly pleasures
In which we are drifting

Like a raft on an endless sea…

DidiArtist, 26.04.2022

How can one…

How can one love
When one hates?

How can one show respect
When one kills?

How can one be true
When one lies?

How can one speak of humanity
When one is inhuman?

How can one respect his neighbour
When he attacks him?

How can one speak of peace
When one wages war?

How can one find his own faults
When all the blame is on others?

How can one express empathy and compassion
When one shows brutal ruthlessness?

How can one have humility
When greedily seeking power?

How can one understand
When one sees nothing and hears nothing?

How can awareness come
When ignorance reigns?

How can we be human beings
When we are still animals…?

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

Progression of ignorance

From not knowing, ignoring
Misunderstandings grow

From misunderstandings
Errors and dislikes spread

From dislikes
Hate and enmity are born

And finally from enmity
Rises war and intolerance

How much ignorance is in us?…

DidiArtist, 30.01.2022

Cunning propaganda

He who says of himself: “I am good”
Is surely not good

He who emphasizes: “This is the truth”
Reveals his untruth

He who says: “Trust me”
Is not trustworthy without proof

He who speaks in superlatives: “I am the best”
Points to his I is egoistic

He who says: “I am the right one”
Convinces those who are easily manipulated

He who spreads lies: “All that is fake news”
Hides himself behind fakes

Such people are power-hungry
They feed on ignorance
Rely on the good faith of their followers
Using them to their own advantage

They deceive people and themselves
Their so-called honesty is dishonesty…

DidiArtist, 11.12.2021

This world: A madhouse

This world: A madhouse

It is the stupidity, the short-sightedness
The ignorance and egoism of the common man
That brings man down

May those who still hear and see
Do not get infected

Trust is not based on the night
Trust is based on the day

May we walk the path of light and love
Even when the world burns…
