Music in the heart


 

 

Music touches the string
Of all hearts listening
Makes bodies tremble
Pouring out emotions

Invisible hands reach each other
Get together,feel together
A flow of dancing sound
Beyond borders, differences

Language of music
Sound of Light
Shining on people
Connecting blood

Rhythm of Oneness
Without words
Spectrum of feelings
Expressed in tears

Man is man
Not divided in tones, notes
Nor in colours or shapes
He is One – in Sound and music

Love for All


 

 

I am not a Christian, Muslim, Hindu,
Or Buddhist, Sikh, Taoist in particular
Nor do I represent any other religion
Isolated from the others
To separate me from other people
I am unity, belonging to the whole
The boat we all sit in
I am a Christian, Muslim, Hindu,
Buddhist, Sikh, Taoist
And other creeds at the same time
For we are all children
Of the One God
And not split into this and that
We are all this boat in Him

So let us remain in our respective religion
Become a true Christian, a true Moslem, a true Hindu
A true Buddhist, a true Sikh, a true Taoist, etc.
In other words: to become a true man
To rise above separation, dogmatism, fanatism
And live in Oneness and Unity with the One
Then all fights will cease and vanish
Love and respect will increase
And right understanding will grow
Among all people and peoples
To understand we are all One in Him

True love is to love His whole creation
Is service to man, service to God
Helping each other…

Because He is undivided love –
How can we separate this love into fragments…
Even our sun gives sunshine to everyone…

Quote: An example of true love – told by Sant Kirpal Singh


 

Excerpt from the book: “Morning talks” by Sant Kirpal Singh Ji


 

Lord Rama was exiled for fourteen years, and one woman called Shivri, who was living in the wilderness to where Lord Rama was exiled, heard that he was coming. She thought to herself that he would be coming bare footed and that the thorns would prick his feet. So she began clearing the way of all thorns. Love is developed not necessarily by seeing, but also by hearing. She also wondered what she would offer him to eat. In the wilderness there wasn’t much, only berries. So she started picking the berries, tasted each one of them, and kept only the sweet berries. There were also some great yogis living in the wilderness but Lord Rama never went to them first. He went to Shivri, who cleared the way for him so that the thorns would not hurt his feet, and who had kept the half eaten berries only for the sake of knowing those which were sweet and those which were sour. So love knows no law. After Rama had been to Shivri, he went to visit the yogis. There happened to be a pond where the yogis lived which was full of insects and the yogis asked Lord Rama to wash his feet in the pond, so that the insects would be cleared out. Lord Rama declined and said, “No, you are great yogis, it is better if you wash your feet in the pond, and it will then be cleared.” All of the yogis put their wash water into the pond but it was not cleared of the insects. The yogis then said, “You are Lord Rama, if you wash your feet in the pond it will surely be cleared.” “All right,” said Lord Rama, “We’ll try it.” He washed his feet in the pond but it still was not cleared. Lord Rama then told the yogis to wash the feet of Shivri (whom they disliked) and when they washed her feet and put the wash water into the pond, it was cleared. Those who love God, love the Master, the God in Him of course. It is not matter of show. That very power is within you and knows every act of yours, what you are doing and why. He knows the very trend of your thoughts. Love knows no show. Love knows service and sacrifice. The outward symbol of love is a sweet tongue, imbued with humility. When you have developed that love, what should you do? You must have patience, perseverance and go on with it. Just like a moth which burns itself on the flame of a candle but never makes any sound. So those who want to love God should not care for their name or fame, honour, this or that thing. They should leave every greatness that they have got physically outside, and lay down at His feet. If they lose their life in sacrifice, even then they won’t mention it. So this is a very delicate question, I would say. Those who have love for God, or the God-in-man, well, this is a relation between you and the God in Him and nobody else. You have to develop it. For that you must have perseverance. It takes time. The work of the servant is to do work, that’s all. It is for the Master to see what He has to give to him.

Present Fate of Various Beliefs and Faiths

The dictionary defines mat as wisdom; but the colloquial meaning of the term is a sect or faith, a group of people holding certain opinions or beliefs in common. Such beliefs and opinions, however, based on stray knowledge and teachings, are not sufficient without the support of personal experience; and therefore the seeker is led astray by mere empty words. Many societies, faiths, and other religious circles have only a legacy of books, beliefs and theories to offer those who thirst after spirituality. They conceal their shortcomings and deficiencies behind a screen of warm welcome, an outpouring of technique and terminology, and the liberal use of sayings and quotations from the enormous mass of literature on the market today. Propaganda and acting and posing have taken the place of practical spirituality, with the result that the deluded public is being repelled from sacred books and thoughts of God. Atheism therefore is on the increase.

To believe in a thing or fact without troubling to investigate it does not in any way do credit to an intelligent man. On the contrary, it reflects adversely on his ignorance or credulity. Any belief not based on personal experience and verification of the facts has little value. The modern man wants a well-defined, clear cut science, capable of verification by his own experience and giving concrete results. We should therefore try to see and hear with our own eyes and ears rather than with the eyes and ears of others.

Self-Analysis

Man is composed of body, mind (intellect) and soul. We are extremely careful to develop ourselves physically and mentally, but understand very little about the soul, which is the power ruling both the body and the mind. Physical joys are not lasting, and there are limitations of body and mind that we cannot ignore; so we must search for the perennial source of joy and peace within ourselves. Self-analysis is the first step in this direction. Many doubts assail our minds at this stage. There is an Omnipotent Power called God, believed in, worshiped and talked about by most people. Can we know more about Him? Can we see Him and talk to Him? There is a definite and clear reply to these questions; the Master in a few brief words explains, “Yes, we can see and speak to Him; that is, if we become as exalted as He is said to be.” Masters say “Yes,” and we do not have to wait until death comes, but we can experience it right now. This is in consonance with laws of nature of which we have as yet no knowledge worth the name. All around us we see and feel that everything from the tiny atom to the mighty universe is governed by a law of nature. So, to the profound thinker, there is nothing chaotic, haphazard or uncertain about this universe and the laws which govern it. To gain any objective, there is a law of nature, a principle and method involved for checking, testing and weighing the result of our endeavours. So it is too in this science of nature, and similar methods can be traced in all religious scriptures by any careful student, though expressed in different words and various languages. We wish to enter the Kingdom of God; “but how?” we ask ourselves. “With the help and guidance of one who has himself entered and can guide us there,” is the simple reply from the Masters. “Is it possible?” “It is a knowledge which is as exact and sure as two and two make four,” is again their reply. It is not enough to be content with Holy Books and the singing of praises and hymns. We must strive for the same degree of advancement as the authors of the talks and knowledge recorded in these books achieved. Their experience must become our experience, for “what a man has done, a man can do”; of course, with proper help and guidance. We should stop at nothing short of this.

“We have hardly a dim spark of love for Him; will it help to cherish a hope?” is another question asked, to which the Saints reply, “It is sufficient to make you eligible for the Highest science of approach to Him.” This is a pleasing ray of hope. Oh! if this small spark could be kindled into a flame! Again, we say, “Jesus and other great Masters spoke so lovingly of Him, but we are sinners and there may not be much hope for us in this age.” The Masters’ soothing reply is, “No matter if you are the worst of sinners, stop where you are. There is hope for everybody, even in this crucial age.” Ages ago, nature provided for us materially and spiritually. Today the same unchangeable law is operating and will continue to do so in the future. There is food for the hungry and water for the thirsty. Nature’s inexorable and eternal law of demand and supply always works. It is only through a living Master that we can contact the Almighty God within us. In Sant Mat, contemplation of objects or images is not advised, as this is harmful to progress. Photographs of the Masters are for remembrance and recognition only, and on no account should we become attached to such external practices.

 

 

Diversity in Oneness


 

 

Common feature

We see men and women in the world
What do they have in common? – They are humans

We see many different skin colours in the world
What do they have in common – They are humans

We see nationalities in the world
What do they have in common? – All are humans

We see so many different relgions in the world
What do they have in common? – All are humans

Ergo: We should see us on the level of Man
Not on the level of differences…

This common denominator is the glue
Of all differences we see in the world…

It connects us, makes us One…

“Man! Know Thyself” – by Sant Kirpal Singh – Part 1


Dear friends,

In the coming days I am going to share with you in many smaller parts a very important subject: “Man know thyself!” – by Sant Kirpal Singh
which can be read also here:

May you all be blessed and happy.

What ist the greatest study of man? Is it theology? I would say no. Is it knowing the law of Blackstone and other great men who came in the past? Even then the answer will be no. Is it the study of works of men like Shakespeare, Miltion, Dickens, Burns? No. Is it occultism or Buddhism or Christianity or Sikhism or any other social religion that we may study? Are such works the greatest aim of man’s study? Again I would say that the answer is no. Why?

If you become conversant with all the scriptures left by the Masters, what do they speak of? “Man, know thyself.” So, knowing man, both his outer and inner aspects, is the greatest study for us. The greatest study of man is man.

Sant Kirpal Singh

Since the beginning of creation, when the first flicker of self-awakening dawned on man, his attention has been more and more concerned with the problem of his own worldly existence and the investigation into the cause and source of all creation. For ages he has probed and queried in vain; but now at last his increasing thirst for knowledge is turning him to study the results achieved by others in the field. Ancient and modern sages asked, “What is that, the knowledge of which makes everything else known?” and in the same breath replied, “Knowledge of the higher self – the true man.” So the supreme knowledge is that which deals both in theory and practice with man’s true nature and his relation to God. It is in fact a natural science without hypothesis, subject neither to change nor time.

In ancient India it was called “Para Vidya” (science of realized truth or science of the beyond), and different denominations sprang up to interpret this knowledge. The term “Apra Vidya,” standing for preparation for achieving the knowledge of Para Vidya, was then introduced. This preparation consists of following an ethical and moral life, and the practice of concentration or meditation (in so many ways), both being indispensable for spiritual development. Man is constantly changing or introducing new names and terminologies to describe this science. The Masters were called “Sant,” and the nature of knowledge “Mat,” thus giving us the term “Sant Mat,” which is at present mostly used to name the Path of the Masters. Other terms, such as Shabd Yoga, Surat Shabd Yoga, Sehaj Yoga, are also used to describe the same science. In the Sanskrit language, the word “Sant” means a Master of the Highest Order; and “Mat” is a confirmed opinion or statement made by an adept after personal experience. The foundation of this science therefore is the result of critical study, minute investigation, and the life-long personal verification of facts based on practical experience of the Self in man. This experience of the Self is something that a competent Master is prepared to give to each individual who approaches him. Sant Mat, therefore, is the teaching, system, and path of the Saints.

The Masters do not attach any importance to names, designations, or the fact that many religious sects, groups and circles have claimed this science as their own and named it after their leaders or founders. They look upon these groups as schools where man – the noblest being in creation – can study with other men as children of one and the same Almighty Father. A Master (also called Sant Satguru) has complete mastery of both theory and practice, and is competent to impart both knowledge and experience to all sincere seekers after truth, without any distinction whatever of colour, caste or creed. Any man or woman, whether rich or poor, young or old, sage or sinner, learned or unlearned, who is able to grasp the theory of the science has a right to acquire this knowledge.

We are not…


 

 

We are not numbers
We are not a passport
We are not titles
We are not outer emblems
We are not devided
Not in different skin colours
Not in different religions
Not in different ideologies
Not in different politics

We are all human beings
Oneness from heart to heart
Drops of the same Ocean…

Are we not all human beings?


humanity2

 

We cry, when we are sad or happy
We laugh, when we are joyful
We feel, when others suffer
We love, when our heart vibrates

Therefore: Let us overcome boundaries:
Nation, colour, language, fear, being better
Idelogies, names, cultures

Are we not one?
Are we not – a human being?
So let us refocus: on our humanity

Don’t we all dream the same dream
– to treat us humanely one another?
– to be human for one another?

Let us make this dream come true…

Revealing a secret


 

It’s me, Didi, at the age of 18 years – now I am much older…
A friend of mine and I arranged a photo-story: Man and nature…

nightsky2

 

Why I use nightskies in my artwork

Maybe many from my friends and followers have wondered why I almost always use stars as a kind of emblem in my artwork. This time I want to share this “mystery” to you.

When I was 2 years old we were living close to a forest and at that time there were hardly street lamps installed. My mother used a pram and was walking with me as a baby along a smaller path of a close forest which was really dark. I remember – although so young – that someday when my parents again had to walk with me along the edge of a forest, there was such a wonderful star-night which impressed me so much, although I surely did not understand it, only had feelings for this wonderful miracle in the sky, no words of course (I think we think in feelings at this age, a language maybe straight from the heart). Now if I think back I would describe the stars like sparkling diomonds in the dark night. I felt safe in it, like to be in my mother’s arms. I felt something very big in my heart.

This impression has accompanied me my whole life and therefore you will find space and time, stars of living beauty in my artwork, an expression of embracing eternity, infinity…

Thanks for your attention 🙂

All good wishes

Human meeting


 

Sometimes a man and a woman meet
Like two galaxies approaching
Dancing, interwoven, embracing
Touching, becoming one

Or “go through” to each other
Continuing their star way
Within the universe of their lives

A meeting in time and space

Naam is a crest jewel

“His grace, Naam, or you may say His love – it is one and the same. It is a crest-jewel, and Master comes as a jeweler in the world. He also comes in the market to sell that very crest-jewel. A lot of people come, but no one dares to buy that crest- jewel, because it is priceless. So, the whole world is full of artificial diamonds also. They say, ‘Yes, it is good – it appears like diamonds, so it is good.’”

The whole world is dealing in such affairs and no one is true to himself – what to say of others! How can one be true to the Master? How can we buy that crest-jewel? It is very difficult.+

Naam is within us

“Where is He (God) 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.

One should have such an eye that can see Him so that He can take us where He is. Our inner husband resides at this place, and our eye should become one with Him. Then our soul says, “I have nothing to do with the world, I only need Your eyes.” When we rise above the body and come on this path, the Master-power, the Godpower, who resides behind the two eyes, takes the child in His lap. And when after so many ages the soul meets God, there is no limit to the inner happiness. Then there is no more difference between soul and Master – it becomes one with Him. When all the coverings have been removed, one does not differentiate any longer; you love everybody as your own self. Then there are no enmities and no ill feelings against anyone.”

We all have gathered here to have the darshan (sight) of the competent One. By His darshan our destiny can be changed, our luck can be changed. He is not far, He resides in our heart. He even quenches the thirst of those who wish to see Him physically. Such a competent Master is in us, not outside. Whoever has attained Him, has only attained Him within this body.

The outer love and attachment is only very short, and therefore we suffer. The Satguru opens the inner way according to the background of His disciple. And He brings us to the Satsang only to raise us above this physical world. With the power of His colour, by His Naam, we are able to rise to the higher spiritual regions and to see the radiant form of the Master. A Master who gives such a fragrance to us always remains with us.

First, we should know our purpose and should know the meaning of the religion into which we were born. We should not be bound to the outer religion (dharma) and thus get entangled in this world. The Mahapurushas come into this world to raise us above with their inner light. The competent Master has made a place in our heart. How can we get it (the highest bliss)? The problem is that we have gone far away from the highest bliss that we have to get from Him. We have separated from the highest Power and have taken a different way, and now our boat is drifting in the Bhav Sagar (the terrible ocean of the three worlds).

Nobody knows where He has come from and where He will go. Whoever has got Him, could get Him in the physical world, in the physical body. The human body that we have got, is the highest in the whole creation. When someone could get in contact with God, then only while being in this physical body.

Master says, “O soul, the time to meet Him is not far.” The ocean of His love is overbrimming in the heart of the Master, and only with His full power can we attain Him.

Sharing smiles


 

 

Let us take by our hands
By our hearts, by our heads

Let us sing together
The song of humanity

Let us forget dark nights between us
And let the sun shine on us

Let us treat as humans
As brother as sisters

Let us live love among us
Compassion from man to man

Let us help each other
Live for each other

Let us overcome differences
On the level of man

Let us not see the mistakes of others
But let us work on our own ones

Let us share a happy smile
To be happy together

Dawn of a new morning


In my heart lives
A world of peace
Harmony between people:
Noone is rich
Noone poor

Everyone exchanged
Greed for love
Money for selfless help
Ego for compassion
War for humanity

One language governs
Our beautiful planet:
Language of the heart
One God for all
No separation anymore

Ideologies merge together
To the welfare of mankind
Children grow up
Without fear
With ethic values

Hearts are touching everywhere
With respect towards each other
Borders are taken down
Freedom for everyone
Free breath, recovered nature

May this dream come true…

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…

…because God is Love – Quote by Sant Kirpal Singh


God is love. The soul of man is a spark of this love.

And it is the link between God and man on the one hand

and between man and God’s creation on the other.

That is why it is said:

He who does not love does not know God,

because God is love.

 

 

 

 

Love is like a bird…


 

 

Love cannot be caught
For it flies from heart to heart
However, if holding it tight
Then it is not love
Then it is ego

Love is a free spirit
A divine Bird, a Hansa
Building its nests
Into to the hearts of men
Leaving a scent of roses and jasmine

We all are humans, no aliens to each other!


 

Don’t we breathe the same air
Under same sunshine?

Don’t we come and go
The same way
Birth and death?

We may speak a different language
May have different skin colour
May belong to different countries
To different religions, creeds

However, we should not build fenses
That separates us
From human being to human being

We all are humans
Under the same sky
Living on the same planet

So let us treat each other as humans
And not as aliens

When do we learn this lesson?…

DidiArtist, 08.04.2018

Human beings


 

We wear the dress
Of a woman or a man
Our characters may differ
The colours of our skin
The language we use
The country we live in
The label of our religions
The faith we belong to

But we all laugh and cry
Are born the same way
All have to leave this world
Have feelings and emotions
Are all directed by our mind
Have a human shape
Are all of the same kind
With life in every heart

So let’s not see
The difference that separates us
But let us see
What all unites us:
We all are Human Beings

From this common denominator
We can treat us humanely.
From man to man…

Time for the curtain to fall
Of seeing us – “differently”…

We are all ONE
Made of the same essence…
