Longing for the Stars


 

 

Longing for the stars
Journey to faraway places
Passing suns, planets
Interstellar nebulae, roving comets

Crossing light and darkness
Watching cosmic lighthouses
Voyage into the abyss of time and space
Like a crazy dream

Visiting moons and worlds
To exchange, share experiences
Broadening the horizon of the spirit
To understand the inner world

Longing for the stars
Embracing infinity
To illuminate silence in the heart
Gilded with the light of millions of suns

Home


 

Can one feel the music of this word?
Is our home the place where we live?
Is it the village, the town?
The state we live in?
The planet we live on?
The solar system our residence?
The universe our home?
The dimensions and multiple universes?

Our true home is not in this world
It is our Father’s home

The soul is singing
Home, sweet home
Reflecting in the tears of eyes
Trembling within divine music
Vibrations like ripples
Sent out to touch home
From the market of this world

Yearning arises
With homesickness
Vibrating voices
Near and far
Penetrate the heart:
My children come home, come home

We are in this world
But not from this world…

Walls around words


walls-around1

Part never expresses the whole
Thoughts are build in words
Draw borders around
Become issues
Get lost in self-opinionatedness

Bricks of words and names
Build houses
Air-castles, fortresses
Fenced in point of views
Collided knowledge

Fragments torn from the whole
With names
Of smoke and mirrors
Connect with bridges
Devided understanding

Silence gives birth
To nameless consciousness
Silent voices
Arising from the heart
Language of the soul

Where nothing is separated
No borders in words and thoughts
There is life in pureness
Communication
All in all

In this silence
Connected we are
Away from the market
Hue and cry of the mind
In one voice: Love and light

THE SINGLE EYE OR THIRD EYE – text by Sant Kirpal Singh

Christ said that it is better to enter the world with one eye rather then two, which will cast you into hell. Everyone has got two eyes, which are open in the face. They have been working ever since birth. All through life we have been working at the level of the two eyes. About eighty percent of all impressions that are received from outside come through the eyes. Those who work only at the level of the two eyes receive either good impressions or bad impressions. Good impressions will react as good actions. Bad impressions will result in bad actions. The very impressions that are embedded in our heart will overflow. It is a very superficial life that we are living. The Masters tell us that there is also another eye, called variously the third eye, the single eye or the shiv netra. Unless you open that third eye (which can be opened only while in the manbody), you are nowhere. It is the eye of the soul, not of the intellect nor the outgoing faculties. We are ensouled bodies, conscious entities, working through mind and outgoing faculties. That inner eye is opened when our soul, the outward expression of which is called attention, is withdrawn to the seat of the soul in the body, which is at the back of the two eyes. The attention is now working at the level of the eyes through the mind and outgoing faculties. We are identified with the body and we have forgotten ourselves. Unless that very attention is withdrawn from outside, and just extricated above the outgoing faculties, which end at the level of the eyes, we cannot know who we truly are. At the time of death you come up to this point. Therefore it is said that “Those who are initiated into the Mysteries of the Beyond, their soul has the same experience of leaving the body and the outgoing faculties, as it has at the time of death”. That eye opens when the attention is withdrawn from outside and then dragged up from the level of the outgoing faculties to the seat of the soul in the body, which is at the back of the two eyes. That is the place where man leaves the body at the time of death. Kabir says, “Just direct your attention to the seat above the outgoing faculties”. When your attention reaches that point, your inner eye opens. The inner eye is within all. So that is why it is said that it is better to enter the world with one eye rather than two, which will cast you into hell. This has now been explained to you very clearly. If you can do it yourself, well and good. If not, then seek the help of somebody who is competent to do it for you. Outward sadhana of japa and mantras and outward performances at the level of the outgoing faculties, anybody can preach with little effort. It is a fact, I would say, of withdrawing the attention from outside and dragging it above the eye level of the outgoing faculties, whereby the inner eye is opened. This eye is opened to see the God-intoExpression Power, which is Light and Sound Principle. To give you one illustration, when a hen sits over an egg, she produces heat within herself. This heat is conveyed to the egg and within the egg, the chicken is born. But the chicken is all hemmed in by the outer coverings of the shell. So the hen says, “Look here child, there is a very big sun outside, and there are fields and vales.” The child says, “Mother, it might be so, but I am in all darkness”. What does the hen do? She just gently taps on the shell with her beak until the egg bursts and the chicken is freed. “If thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of Light”.

You know what that means? It is a demonstration, a proof, that when the third eye opens, you see the Light of God within you. To give another illustration, suppose there are one hundred stairs in a house, and a man climbs thirty, forty, fifty, sixty stairs, but still he does not see any light. As he gets near to the roof, he sees flashes of light. When he gets to the top of the roof, he sees light. This is only a first step to show when the third eye is opened. This we can do only in the manbody, which we have got with the grace of God. When rain comes in torrents, it floods the whole world. Similarly, when the true Master comes, He brings with Him the Water of Life. I use the word ‘true’, as there are so many ‘masters’ flooding the world. They simply give you something at the level of the outgoing faculties. Their third eye is not opened and they cannot open the third eye of others. The greatness of a true Master lies in the fact that He has opened His inner eye and can also make others see. Our Master used to say, “Well, what is the use of giving the five names, five mantras, or any outward thing? That even a little girl spinning a wheel can tell you”. The outward methods of performing a ritual anybody can do with a little training. But rising above body consciousness and opening the single eye, only a competent man can do. He will give you a sitting and after that you will see some Light. The more accurately you follow His instructions, the more Light you will see. Even a blind man has got the third eye. On my first tour to the West in 1955, I went to Los Angeles. During the meditation hour in the morning, a blind doctor was there and he was given a sitting and he saw Light. Masters give the eye to the blind man. In the eyes of the Masters, we are all blind. They see that our third eye is not open. Kabir says, “I see all are blind”. Who is not blind? He who sees the Light of God within him, whose third eye is open. You follow me now, exactly what I mean to say? When Masters come they flood the world. Their rays pour down in torrents and the whole world is flooded with the Water of Life. Kabir says, “There is a flood of the Water of Life given out by the Masters. People may take away as much as they like”. When you leave the body at the time of death, you will simply repent. You should die while alive and this can only be done in the manbody and at the feet of a competent Master whose inner eye is opened and who can open the eye of others. Even the blind man has got the third eye. Those who do not see light outside see Light within when their inner eye has been opened. This eye is opened only when you rise above body consciousness. This is to be born anew. “Except ye be born anew, ye cannot enter the Kingdom of God.” “Learn to die so that you may begin to live.” At the time of death, your soul will be withdrawn from outside and from the outgoing faculties. It will come up to the seat of the soul at the back of the eyes. If this process is done while living, your inner eye is opened to see the Light beyond. All glory lies within you. So when the Masters come, there is a flood of Spirituality in the world. This is high time to take away as much as you can. This is the true wealth that you can gather while in the manbody. All other wealth is left here along with the body. When the Masters come they cry, “O people, now is the time. Make the best use of it. There is a flood of the Water of Life.

Take as much as you can, it is all given free.” Only a little devotion, a little receptivity is to be developed, whether you live near or far makes no difference whatsoever. Why are we fortunate to have the manbody? It is because in the manbody only can we open that eye. When your eye is opened, you enjoy the Beyond while still living. You should graduate while you are here, then you remain the same graduate after living the body. If you are unlearned now, how can you become a graduate after leaving the body? Our Master always used to say, “Who becomes a learned man while in life remains learned even after leaving the body. Those who are illiterate here, how can they become educated afterwards?” You follow now, why so much praise is given to the Master. Not to the socalled masters, the world is flooded with them. If their own eyes are not opened, they cannot open the eyes of others. To go on in your present condition won’t do. You will remain all along at the level of the eyes, or at the level of the outgoing faculties. So if you can rise above yourself, well and good. What more is required. If not, you can have the help of somebody whose eye is open and who gives you something to start with, some capital to see the Light of God. So you can now appreciate the beauty of the advice, “It is better to enter the world with one eye rather than two, which will cast you into hell”. When Masters come, they speak in their own language, but they say the same things. The whole world is at the level of feelings and emotions, or of drawing inferences at the level of the intellect. They have not seen. So feelings, emotions and drawing inferences are all subject to error, seeing is above all. Those who have seen say the same thing. That is why it is said, “Listen to the words of the Master. He says what He sees and He is competent to make others see”. Books cannot explain these very few words, which are very simple, quite to the point and at a commonsense level. Our inner eye is closed but it is there and can be opened while in the manbody. Why can’t we open it ourselves? Because our soul, combined with mind, has become a jiva, and by outward expressions through the outgoing faculties, it has become identified with the body and the world outside so much so that it has forgotten its true nature. If it continues for years and years all methods of outward worship and uses them for meditation at the level of the outgoing faculties, or at the level of the eyes, it cannot go up. If it can go up by its own efforts, well and good. Otherwise it should take the help of somebody whose inner eye is open and who is competent to open the inner eye of others.

State of Oneness


 

 

Matter and energy are equivalent
Both vibrate, have their own frequencies
If the vibration is low, it becomes visible
If it swings higher, its state is energetic

We see things
Because we share the same vibration with them
When not seeing things, they swing higher
Consider them as forms of energy

We grow old in an environment
With the same speed
Do not perceive it directly
Only time shows the age

We are matter and energy
Are state and vibration
Are neither matter nor energy
Nor state and vibration

We are an invisible word
Unspeakable, hidden as a whole
A walking something, conscious being
Beyond time and space

We are changing physical states:
Solid, liquid, gaseous, visible, and invisible…

Life: Ocean of transformation


 

All is moving
Along a long street
Of changing moments
Changing life forms

Islands of transitions
Time-eating processes
Devoured in itself
In front of the eye of Now

Living bubbles burst
In the ocean life
Arise and burst in cycles
Breath of eternity

Transitory bridges in-between
Spectral colours show the way
Metaphysical masks with streching hands
To reach the golden light

Divine waves roll
At the banks of time
Flow in magic forms
A dance of life and death

Spirit rises with the dust
Puts off the coat of matter
Light and love everywhere
Flowing music through the heart

Stillstand – silence – united
Embracing consciousness
Splitting dust to dust
Spirit to spirit…

Yearning of the soul


 


Kirpal Sagar

 

Following text about yearning of the soul can be read here:

http://spirituality.unity-of-man.org/en/spirituality/god-spirit-and-soul/59-yearning-of-the-soul.html

 

 

Yearning of the soul

“O God, Your attention reaches far and wide, everywhere.
Millions of souls are longing for Your blessing – they are standing at Your door to get Your Naam.
But You give Naam only to those who love God from the core of their heart.”

All the disciple needs he can get just by surrendering fully at the feet of the Master. When the disciple surrenders to Him, Master is happy, for He sees: “My child who was sent into the world with many promises and got lost in the fair of the world, has now returned to me.” Then, full of joy, the Masterpower takes the child to the place where His work is done so that the child may get further lessons. That is called Satsang. Through His word and blessing He dyes the soul in His own colour so that it may never leave Him again, for Master wants to keep His child close to Him. The soul then knows, “My Father is highest in the whole universe, no one is equal to Him!”

 

When the soul gets these blessings, the disciple prays, “O Master, take away from me lust, anger, greed, attachment, and ego and give me the real life. I want to live at Your feet forever!” Inside, reaching at the gate to His throne, the soul recognizes Master’s abode as the treasure of Naam. Seeing Him distributing this treasure, the soul says, “Master generously distributes this unique treasure of Naam. I need this blessing from Him to cross the ocean of life.”

Weeping the soul begs, “O Master, do not leave me! If You are with me, all troubles and sorrows are gone and all attachments to the world are cut off. Under Your shelter and protection alone I can live, otherwise I am in the grip of the five thieves. When You are with me, the five thieves run away. Keep my face always turned to You! You have granted me Your help again and again, so I can overcome all those problems.” The soul further cries, “How great a burden You took on Your shoulders, how great the power You give us to cross the barriers! Without Your help we could hardly ever reach Your heart. Grant me the grace to sit under the shade of that tree (of Your grace) or plant this tree in front of my house. Branches and leaves of this tree should be made of truth, so that I may relish its fruits.” I am crying before You on behalf of myself, beseeching You not to send me into the wheel of life again.” A doctor can only be called who knows about the patient’s suffering. The soul says, “Take away from me lust, anger, greed, attachment, and ego, and give me the knowledge of Brahm (which cannot be gained unless one lives a pure life) and Bhakti (devotion to the Master). All that lies in Your hand.”

The soul knows that if the disciple has attained this knowledge and gets Master’s attention, even the gods and goddesses bow down before him. The soul says, “O God, Your attention reaches far and wide, everywhere. Millions of souls are longing for Your blessing – they are standing at Your door to get Your Naam. But You give Naam only to those who love God from the core of their heart.

 

 

 

One in the One


 

 

I feel my heart overflowing
With love for the whole creation
Humility at the feet of the Creator
His light flowing in me

I feel this Ocean inside me
Like waves of pure light
Hugging the whole being
Moving my heart to tears

I feel oneness with everything
Heart to heart connection
Dawn to dusk, day to night
Perfect happiness

I feel the current of bliss
That flows through me
A dancing light
On the waves of my being

Everything sounds, everything shakes
Shines like millions of suns
Sound of Eternity
One in the One

Right understanding 4 – by Sant Kirpal Singh


 

Dear blogging friends
 
The small video series of “Right Understanding” by Sant Kirpal Singh continues.
 
All the best, my friends and thanks for your attention
Didi
 

 
 

Let the heart speak


 

 

When the heart speaks
It makes no difference
Between black and white
It speaks with love and light

When the heart speaks
Forgotten all the differences
Be it culture or religion
Since it knows no collision, division

When the heart speaks
It hugs with love
Takes us as we are
As a golden star, not apart

When the heart speaks
No mind comes in between
It dresses us in love
In oneness and above

When the heart speaks
It shines in our hearts
Humanity and lights
That human love ignites

Learn to swim


 

 

We do not learn swimming on land
We learn swimming in the water
– In the water of life…

So let us swim in the ocean of life
Without drowning, accepting even high waves
To reach the shore of eternity

Dangerous ways


 

 

How many things do we mix
Put in the same pot
Lose the sharp look
To differentiate?

Slip in thoughts
Are deluded in results
Stay in the wilderness
In the jungle of ignorance

How many things do we declare
To know them, without knowing
Without personal experiences
Adopt, accept without checking?

Are proud of acquired opinions
Soup of light and shadow
We defend angrily, vehemently
Leaving traces of violence

So we eat our meal
Convinced of its taste
Ignoring the risk
To upset the stomach of our spirit…

Golden light in the eyes


 

 

Have you ever seen the light
In the eyes of people
The brilliance of it
The sunshine radiating?

This glowing is not male, not female
It is beyond description
No words can catch it
No thought can pin it

Living music flows out of these eyes
Over the edge of matter
Penetrates time and space
Is pure nectar of the heart

It touches my deepest being
A ray of divinity
Light that merges into light
A dance of love between you and me

Beacon of the soul…

DidiArtist, 13.06.2019

 
 

Who we are


 

 

My life is a grain of sand
Within the life of all life
It is connected to everything

I look into the depths of life
Into the cosmos of all things
Movement of being, non-being

So everything is in me:
Consciousness, my Higher Self
That also is in everyone

Connected to this Higher Self
Is each and every-one of us
Universal connection, togetherness

God is called this Higher Self
We are looking for but cannot find
For He is already within us…

Journey of my life


 

 

As passenger hardly seen
The light of the world
I am called – by life:
The train to somewhere
First cry, worldly feed

Kidnapped – where to?
Old man: “To the death, to the unknown!”
Young man: “To the world of activity!”

As passenger I am driven
From the beginning of my spirit
A morning of glowing sunshine
Along the whole day
Till the evening dusk of the winter
Which signals from afar
Rising from dark mountains
Silence, nightfall

The train yet travelling
Still rattling along the time
Two eyes looking backwards:

Lost moments – those beloved
Stoned in time
On the field of immortality

During the night they rumble about
Like ghosts wandering around
Burst from the depth
Holding their lamps right in my face
Touching past moments –
Two eyes looking forward…

As a passenger of life
Much seen from the world
I am called – by the death:
The train – going somewhere
Leaving a smile on my face
Providing last food

Now the rattling fades away
The train stops – endstation:
Evening turned into night
Life became winter
While sparkling stars act as guards
Cover my life with silence

Young man: To open a new door…
Old man: To the life, to the known…
