Painful Understanding

 

 

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

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…

Opening Of New Ways

 

 

Only when the fruit is ripe,
We can eat it
When certain knowledge is mature within us
Then we can take certain paths…

Knowledge from the soul

True knowledge gives us certainty
It takes away the fear of the unknown
For the soul is connected with the divine

DidiArtist, 03.12.2021

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

One-sided

When failing to perform the balancing act
From knowledge to knowledge
One remains one-sided in his knowledge

Theory and practice

Sometimes we speak of universal love
As if we knew what truly universal love is

How often do we speak of love and harmony
But do we know what love and harmony really are?

We pretend that we are already love personified
But these are only our words, not our deeds

Understanding universal love, divine harmony
Requires us to live by it, not just throw down words

To understand what love really is
For this, we must first understand ourselves

Not with words, but with deeds
Changing our point of view

To look at everything from Oneness
That will teach our little crazy ego to be silent….

Believing and knowing

There is a huge difference
Between believing and knowing

What I don’t know, that’s where my belief begins
And what I know is where my belief ends
Or:
I believe to know…

Then there is a huge difference
Between outer knowledge and inner knowledge

Inner Seeing is Believing
Is knowing

I know to believe

DidiArtist, 26.04.2022

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…

Question of Being

Is consciousness to know oneself, to be
Without knowing what life, being is?

Or is it consciousness to know
To discover one’s own Self
Under the cover of knowing oneself?…

DidiArtist, 24.11.2021

Driven feelings

Some things we know
That they are not right
Yet we enter these paths…

DidiArtist, 19.11.2021

Unconsciousness

 


 

Does not know any colour
No darkness
No light
No knowledge
No perception
Knowing about oneself
No nothing
No being
Contains dead knowledge
Is a thought
Without thought

We all are rather dead than alive…

DidiArtist, 10.11.2020

 
 

Life in darkness

Living with an error
Is like walking in the dark
You feel things
But you don’t know what they are
And so you start to speculate…

DidiArtist, 03.12.2021

Where we stand

Sometimes we hold on to a straw
We think it is our true home
And overlook that we are once again deceived

We stretch out our feelers everywhere only to discover the truth
And overlook that we are like a fish in water
Seeking the water, the ocean

We think we have found the truth
In the jungle fight of this world
Have a thousand irons in the fire
To make sure
That one of them is the truth
And overlook our own ignorance

We fearfully flee into thousands of directions
Losing the one direction
That leads us to the truth
Unconsciously patting ourselves on the back
What we do, think, and know
By mixing it all together
And fail to see that we are not true to ourselves

When we can let go of ourselves
Then the gate to the truth opens
The gate to our own Self…

DidiArtist, 24.11.2021

So-called backseat drivers

The know-it-alls know
Usually everything better
Because they do not know better…

DidiArtist, 05.10.2021

Inner knowledge

When understanding and knowledge flow into the heart
Light shines into the darkness of human abysses…

DidiArtist, 23.10.2021

Surrender of the proud intellect

Only when we deeply have understood
That we cannot understand everything
The river bows to the ocean…

DidiArtist, 03.07.2021

Truth and honesty

 

Devine play

 

When there is a grain of dust in honesty
It is no longer true and pure

Half-truths are not truthful…

DidiArtist, 19.11.2020

 
 
 

Walker between worlds

 

 

Climbing mountain
Vibrant ups and downs
Collecting wisdom, truth
Stowing them into the backpack
Of the heart

Pathes become familar
Traps and dangers known
Inner worlds visible
Experiences practical

How to share them?
Only those who know
Have eyes to see
And ears to hear

Others ogle with the mind
Cannot hear the truth
Of higher worlds above
But need their time, their way

Seeing is believing
Is knowing practically
Has no race with others
But humbleness and grace

Lonesome are the ways
The walks between the worlds
And those who know the land
Confirm, others not…

Making decisions

 
 

 
 

Flooded by the past
Within the orbit of experiences
Gravity of feelings
To define the essence of being

Free will restricted
The echo of old deeds, thoughts
Pyramid-like decisions
That impose themselves, orbit around

Releasing from the buffer zone
Of mind and emotions
To show the next forking path
Building the future

Thin is the bridge of decisions
Choice of heart and mind
To follow the red thread
Where the sun shines

DidiArtist, 09.11.2020

 
 

Learnt knowledge versus experienced knowledge

 


 

How many things do we learn, copy
Without thinking, checking

We are loaded like a donkey
With knowledge that is not our knowledge

The more we follow this automatic process
The more we live a life that is not our life

Thousands of books cannot give us
What own experiences provide

In adopted outside knowledge there we meet death
While experienced knowledge fills us with life

However, sometimes we need to be “dead”
To strand at the shore of life…
