Further Soamiji says, “What is the whole creation? It is the expression of God. It all came out of Him. There is no place where He is not.”

The world, you see, is His expression only. The Masters give us an example: there is a tree that is a perfumed tree. When you rub a piece of the wood of that tree, it gives you perfume. Sandal, sandalwood, it is called. Soamiji says, “The whole world is a sandalwood tree.” It is said that the poisonous snakes are in contact with the sandalwood tree, lying around the tree – to give them some peace, or some satisfaction, you might say, or some cooling effect. When these snakes bite or sting somebody, the man who is stung feels like fire in that place, he gets a burning pain. Those snakes remain attached to the tree. Soamiji says, “If you want to have the juice of that tree, how will you have it? The only way is to cut the snakes with your sword and have the juice of the tree.” This is an example to show that this whole universe is the sandalwood tree – it is all God’s expression; but this delusion, the snake of delusion, is all around the tree. So what is the way out? How to rise above, come out of the delusion?

Soamiji says, “With the sword of ‘Gyan'”. What then is “Gyan”? “Knowledge”. “Gyan” is not just literary findings, but it is just rising above body-consciousness and coming in contact with the God-into-expression-Power and see Him. This is the true meaning of the word “Gyan”.

He says, “Take the sword of ‘Gyan'” – that is, rise above body-consciousness, – “and you will see. You will have that enjoyment of God within you.”

All Masters tell us how to come out of this delusion by rising above body-consciousness, which is the source of all delusion, because you are identified with the body, which is changing every moment of life; and the world around us, being made of matter, is also changing at the same rate as our body is changing. Because we are identified with this (body), the world appears to be stationary. If you come out of that delusion, you will find that your inner eye is open; you will see that it is all an expression of God outside. So, this is the way.

What will happen if you come in contact (with God), have a conscious, beatific vision of God? The result will be that all your sins which you have committed in the past up to this date, ever since you left the Father’s Home (Sach Khand), will be washed away.

He (Soamiji) gives an example: there are great stores of wood and if you just put a little fire in them, they will burn down to ashes. Similarly, you have got innumerable sins ever since you left the House of the Father. If you take a little bit of the light that the Master gives you, all of these sins will be burned away with it. The reason is that when you become a conscious co-worker of the divine plan, the ego is lost, who will suffer? In all other actions, good or bad, we are the doer: “As we sow, so shall we reap.” If you see that it is that Power which is working, not we, we are mere puppets in His hands, naturally there is nobody to bear the fruit of it. “As you sow, so shall you reap.” There is nobody to reap it because you have become a conscious co-worker of the divine plan. So, you can get that light from the Master. By coming in contact with that God-into-expression-Power, the two aspects of which are light and sound, you will burn away all your sins, accumulated ever since you have left the Father’s Home.

Masters always say, “Please, whatever you have been given, just stick to it like anything.” Now, Guru Ram Das says, “This is what the Master gives you.” And the Master – what is He? He is “Word made flesh.” He is light personified, He is sound personified. When you come near Him, that very thing which He personifies – the “Word made flesh” in its two aspects of light and sound – that radiates from the body of the Saint, the Master. If you just sit in that field or area and you become receptive, you will have that radiation. As is the case with perfumed flowers, if you sit by them – near them – you will get perfume, isn’t it so? Without touching them! If there is a room and you keep some perfumed flowers in it, the whole room will be perfumed. They say, “What to do? Just sit in the company, have a Satsang in the company of such Saints who are ‘Word made flesh’, and be receptive to them” not being like the man sitting in the church and thinking of the play-ground!

Reaching hearts


 

 

Not necessary to twist words
To hold whole lectures
Bend lips and tongues
When reaching a heart

Heart speaks with simple words
Touches you with light
A hug of love
Symphonie between hearts

Beams of light touch each other
Cosmic melody
A dance in Oneness
Vibrating happiness

Poem that find its way
Directly into the heart
Changing the beat
Song of two hearts

Happiness for you and me…

Spiritual Talk – by Sant Kirpal Singh and Biji Surinder Kaur (part 4)

The whole world was created by Him, and for him who understands, it is not difficult to attain Him. And those people, who have a bad destiny and who cannot attain Him, they only weep in this world. The root of consciousness of the competent Master is in this world and He gives consciousness to everybody. And we all who are sitting here are part of His light. And the light of a Bhakta, a devotee, is of no use if Master’s light does not shine through him. There is no place where His light does not shine. No low power can approach one in whom the light of God has been lit.

Where is He to be found? We can only find Him in us, and there we have to search for Him. For ages and ages, man has been suffering but was unable to search for God in his own self.

God, who has blessed you with this body, who has created it, He made your heart His temple. He gave it to you as a present to live in it for a short time. And Master said, “In the same way as He had cleaned this body, which had been built by God, so you should also clean your heart.” We should not remain in the dirt forever, one time we have to reach our eternal Father. As long as the soul does not meet the Father again, He cannot be happy. This is the food of our life, which we can only get from our Father. This is the shining temple which is in us, and when you want to see Him, you can see Him there at any time. There is the flame of truth, and Master says, “O soul, you do not care for this temple where the flame is burning day and night. You are so busy with (outer) devotion and caring for the beauty of the gurdwara, mosque or church, but you do not see the inner temple. The human body, in which the Godpower resides all the time, is the highest in the creation.”

Then the soul replies, “O Beloved, how can I thank You with my words. You have created the whole world, so many bodies, and in everybody You reside. O my God, how great You are that You always think of this temple. You have given us the true heart, a place called Harki Pauri, where one can make the holy round-walk (the Parkarma).” What is Harki Pauri? When the soul goes back, it first takes a bath there. Harki Pauri is in us. When we close the eyes, we can see Him at this place. “A heart where You could take residence is better than thousands of holy places. If You had not blessed me with this body, You could not live in my heart.” He gave us the way of our life and made in us a place where He Himself can hide. Why is our temple a thousand times more colourful (than any outer temple)? Because He, the giver of Naam, is within us and He is giving this colour to us. He gives us Naam. This temple has not been built by our hand but by Master’s hand. Therein our Beloved gave us the water of His blessing, of His grace, and with the grace of His Naam, He made it strong like concrete. With the hardship (in the meditation) of His Naam, the light always shines in this temple. This is the temple of our competent Father, the treasure of His intoxication is always there! There is only one Sakhi (cupbearer), one Satguru, and one pot from where He distributes it. He made this pot out of His hardship. And when the soul has been dyed in this colour, one can see the soul shining in this temple. There the soul bows down and cries, “O God, You have always been residing in me, and I was only wandering around in the whole world. Without Your grace, nobody can find You!” The soul further says, “You have sent us into this world, You fill (the pot with Your colour) and You reside in us, but You keep the key in Your hand. … I know only one place where I can bow down: where day and night the hidden inner melody is going on in us.”

With Master’s sound-current the soul rises above and then it says, “Today I could see that there is only one place where I can bow down my head, one place for the devotion to Him, where Your inner light always shines. If You do not bless and guide us – with the outer ways we cannot go and reach inside. Only with Your grace can we rise above our body.” This world is like a jungle, and when we rise above the body, we cross thousands of moons, stars, and suns.

When Master takes us to the seat of the soul, He takes the burden of His soul. If a Master is not able to take the burden of the soul, He is not competent. When the Master takes over the burden, the soul becomes very light and can go within. As long as we do not get the second birth from Master, the initiation, He cannot take our burden. Only with the power of Naam, with the initiation is the soul’s burden removed. Only with His power can we go on the inner journey. Only when He gives His full grace does the door to the inner knowledge open.

Sun in my heart


 

Spirit travels
Beyond the abyss
Of time and space
Journey in my heart

Passing supernovas,
Black holes, quasars
Collapsing stars
Galaxies, dimensons

Riding on rays of light
To the source of love
My date, the inner sun
Island of bliss

Arms of protoberances
Streching out towards me
Divine embrace
To welcome his child

Sunshine sings in my heart
Opens new golden sources
To send out the message
Into the depth of the universe:

Love unites, love is one…

Monolith society: Between light and shadow


 

Individuals
In the grip
Of dictation
Education

Squeezing egoism
Attached to
Showbags
Promised candy

Imprisoned mind
Based on
Empty words
Ensnared wishes

Refulgence without orign
Sheep behaviour
To follow blindly
Embraced by ignorance

Hierarchic divions
To give importance
With instilled power
Often abused

Swinging between
Creeping corruption
And ideals in light
Showering humanity

Togetherness is light
Separation just darkness
With no life and consciousness
Lost in selfish desires

Rigid society,
Turns into humanity
By individuals
Becoming human

Beware your dream
And make it come true
To manifest harmony
Beween you and yours

Dancing light


 

Light is dancing in my heart
Like diomonds glittering on waves
Eyes wander through galaxies
Inhale light

Affecting, touching
Essence of my being
Like billowy waves
In rushing waters

Bliss arises
Rays of love
Cosmic expansion
Kissing the universe

Suns invite for dancing
Lay their light in me
Whirl around mysteries
Lift them from the depth

Time sails by
With myriads of stars
Opens divine spaces
On the floor of eternity

Leaving a heart pondering
Anchored in love and light…

Ready for eternity?


 

 

The bridge from pleasures of the world
To become a tool in the hands of God
Is a way of making decisions
To live for Him, with Him eternally

Wishes and pleasures are tempting
Draw attention in all direction
Are not focused, absorbed in Him
Prevent full concentration

With stops and go indecisions are made
Preferred to bath in pleasures
To push off the ultimate decision
To enter into Oneness

As long as mind is besmeared with dust and matter
The soul cannot be ready for her last step
To live without ego in His light
To become one with the One

This bridge, a way from ourselves to “our” Selves
From our being to His Being…

Conversation with God


When we understand that this Oneness is God, real love, life and light, perfectly in Itself, with no ending and beginning, then we understand that mind and ego are illusions. What is ego? Ego is the separation of God, is duality. May we all wake up from our ego-life, from our duality, from I-ness, from I and mine and bow down to God in all humbleness – as we all are still in a deep sleep, in the dream of I and mine…

Poetry by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

 

Song of the heart


 

Today my heart is bleeding
Golden tears
Sunshine of love
Dawn of divine emotions

Slight trembling of a cobweb
Touched by rays of light
Of global significance
Spanning the world

Tripping pearls roll along
White threads of flooded light
Heartfelt symphony
Shaking feelings

In an ocean
Of pure happiness
Singing the song:
We are one

Today my heart is bleeding
Golden tears
Sunshine of love
Dawn of divine emotions

I see God in all


Today my heart is overflowing
With love and tears for everyone
I feel the deep connection
From man to man
From heart to heart
A music of the spheres
Between God and man
Between Creator and creation

Today my heart is overflowing
A symphony of love
A flow of tears
Golden water pearls running
Down from my cheeks
Feeling one with all
Embracing the universe
A divine kiss into my heart

My heart is dancing…

Heart vibration


 

 

When the heart sings
It warms people
Wraps them in singing light
Then it speaks a language
That reaches every heart
Which is melting ice
Touches our innermost core
Takes us to paradise

When the heart sings
All clocks stand still
Time itself listens
The sound of love
Eyes look up
Feel harmony
Vibrating happiness
That silences the mind

Let us sing this song together…
Divine vibration…

God, an Ocean of All-Consciousness


 

 

God is described as the one supreme being, the unmanifest-manifested, the eternal verity, the conscious spirit pervading all forms that emanate from Him – He upholding all creation, but is immanent in every form.

God is nameless, absolute, but when He wished to become from one to many, His power came into expression. That power is known as Naam in the terms of the Masters. It is also known as Shabd, as Kalma, as Word, and other names. That power is the creator of all things, it is controlling all things.

God is an ocean of all consciousness. We are of the same essence as that of God: a drop of the ocean of all consciousness.

Sant Kirpal Singh

 
 

A happy soul is…


 

Dear friends,

My friend Kamal has inspired me to write some lines of a happy soul.
Please, check out her great blog-site, full of wisdom and spiritual richness.
 

https://boundlessblessingsblog.wordpress.com/2018/12/04/happy-souls-are-we/
 

Indeed we are soul, love and light – however, our mind stands often between our inner happiness and covers it with its own permanent changing colour.

Thank you, my dear friend, Kamal 🙂
 
 

 
 

Here is what I have added to her lovely post:

A happy soul is who has seen with inner eyes the everlasting happiness in Him…

A happy soul is who is detached from all worldly affairs, who is in this world but not from this world

A happy soul is who lives Oneness

A happy soul is who combines Self-realisation with God realisation

A happy soul is who has reached emptiness from oneself, to enter One Self

Embracing inner light despite darkness in the world


 

Night covers human hearts
Fearful clouds pass by
Polluted thoughts
Fill the atmosphere

Negative power
Ready to push the button
Appetite to eat millions
Use leaders as their pons

In the whirl of confusion
Dark forces
Let us remember our inner light
Sunshine beyond fear and threat

This light is eternal
And cannot be destroyed
Nor can death take it away
Life in light

A close look inside
Removes the veil
Of illusion, maya
All remains – is light…

Symphony of the inner spheres..

Light and shadow


light-and-shadow

 

Sometimes we appear
Because of pride and fear

Sometimes we lie
To have no cry

Sometimes we hide
From our side

Sometimes we play
With mud and clay

Sometimes we cheat
And steal the seed

Sometimes we are loud
On which we are proud

Sometimes we pretend
With masks we were lent

Sometimes we fight
With our mind too tight

Sometimes we’re blind
Convinced of our kind

Sometimes we cannot see
The beauty of a tree

But sometimes we can hear
The voice of the heart
And all is clear
Our conscience, our guard

One Being – One Love – One Life


 

 

All is saturated
With Your Consciousness
In shades and grades
From the lowest to the highest
From the smallest to the largest

All Being is Your Consciousness
Everything has sound and colour
Everything rests in itself
Everything carries Your light
Everything is Your handwriting

Pure consciousness You are
Pure love, pure life
Your kingdom built with stones
Full of consciousness of any size, any kind
Conscious perfection

All is connected with everything
Nothing is separated
Flowing Consciousness through All Being
A Being of All and Nothing
Symphony of Light and Sound

Every atom, every particle
Is Your universe within us
Every sun, every star
Is Your colour, Your light
Every drop Your Ocean…

Life, a mysterious dream


 

 

I move myself in this world
Like in a dream
Pupated, veiled
A Sisyphos-dream
Without time and space

Life passes by
Like dancing clouds
Of which each touches me
Secretly kidnapping
Approaching with singing words

Words without meaning and reason
Fade away in the abyss time
Pictures that capture me
Burn into my memory
Dissolve into nothingness

Life after life in the same rhythm
Like a dream without spaces
Milky shapes that I reach for
I cannot touch nor understand
Losing myself, finding myself again

Pupated in a dream
Waking up in light…

DidiArtist, 21.07.2019

 

Foolish man


 

 

For short blissful moments
Man sacrifices his whole life

But eternal happiness
Does not lie in external things
In fulfilled wishes
Chased pleasures

It lies hidden inside in us
It is time to excavate this treasure…

Are we aware that we stand
In our own way as a hinderance…?
