Watcher of life


 

 

Outside all is changing
Whirls of passing times
Bubbles of coming and going
Morphing moments

Inside all seems the same
Carries my being along the time
Knowing to know
It is me, center of my Self

May be a bit wiser
Through walking experiences
Fragrance of knowledge
That clings to my Self

While the world turns
Faster and faster
A carousel of changing moments
Infuses its magic

My Self in the eye
Of Noting and All
Surrounded by a storm
Of a kaleidoscopic illusion…

Implosion of you and me


 

 

As soon born
A line was drawn
Border between
You and me

Mirror broken
Fragments flying around
Separating time and space
Birth of death and life

Thoughts draw lines
Contours of words
Wandering deeds
On a picturesque stage

Everything seems separate
Like pearls on a bead
Conscious fractures
Between me and the world

Everything moves outwardly
To cement lost pieces
Endless searching
Happiness in vain

But inside rests the answer
To find oneself
Unattached to the world:
Big-bang of life, consciousness

Reverse: Implosion of fragments
Restoring the mirror – Picture
Of you and me
Without lines, contours

Formless, timeless
Closed in itself
Eternal happiness
Radiant love

Presciousness of listening


 

 

An egostic ear
Can only hear
Listen to itself…

Stale words


 

How many times it happens
That we deceive ourselves
We identify us with mere words
Without really knowing,
Practically living them

To make us better
Compared with other?
To demonstrate knowledge?
Or to make a show
In front of us?
Or do we just run after
What is in fashion?…

We try to justify it
With some book-reading
And are even proud of it…

However, when reading
A book about water
We cannot squeeze the water
Out of it – not even one drop…

Ignorance in hurting people


 

 

Often we are not aware when we hurt someone
For we are so much busy with ourselves, not seeing
That our reaction has a hurting content
As a motto: “I come first…”

We are fast with prejudices
See things on the level of our ego
Too proud to admit when mistakes made
Leave the hurt one alone: “Not my business…”

There is fear to face the truth
That we were wrong, ego-oriented?
A chess-player cannot just see his own chess pieces
Needs to step into each other’s shoes

Only then we learn the “moves” of the other
Better to understand, better to react
Instead of adopting the position: “I do not care…”
So also no reactions – can hurt…

These thoughts packed in silence
Are like an arrow shot into the other’s heart…

Journey to become honest and pure


 

 

To be honest
Is a matter of consciousness
To know our own mistakes
A process – walking into the depth

It is easy to say: “I am honest”
How many things we have overseen
Have not considered as honesty, dishonesty
In our daily life?

Yes, I am honest according of what I know
About my present state of mind
Present knowledge of myself
But what about the ignorance of myself?

Then I have missed many things
To consider as honesty, dishonesty
So walking in ourselves
Is to discover, to know ourselves – more and more…

What I claimed yesterday as honesty
May be today under a broadened horizon
So we bear honesty on our shoulders
To get lighter and lighter from ourselves…

The more we find us
The more we lose us
Detached from the world and even ourselves
To become pure in our hearts…

Path of truth


 

Truth may diviate so much
Of how we understand our world view
That it would trigger a shock in us
Would we really see the truth
As it is

At once our whole conception of the world
Would be upside down…

Therefore: development is necessary
“Seeing is believing!”

May we all advance
On the path of truth

World of love


 

 

Our system is built up
In a hierarchy of power and titles
Attached to the ego
Wants more and more control

How much dirt and sand is used
To climb on this ladder?
A system, a business tailored
Between Yes and No

Forced to follow, to obey
In exchange for new roles
For higher positions
Paid with tricky temptations

One hand gives
Draws values, ideals in the air
While the other hand
Imprisons, keeps one tight

Orders are given from top to bottom
Manipulation on each level
Freedom – where is it?
When life is spoon-fed

At the horizon a new mankind is announced
Where better and higher crumbles away
A silver-lining of humanity
In the language of the heart

Where the voice of the heart is arising
There is no space for control and power…

Play with fire


 

Ignorance goes along
With naive thinking

Who sees through
The game of politics?…

…Bargening for votes
By unrealistic promises
Fairy tales – to win
Credulous voters
At all cost
To be on power

With people left behind:
Abused and cheated…

…Who also have to pay the bill
For following damages…

Difference between love and love


 

 

Love on the level of senses and mind
Loves the partner, the family, the pet, the country
Is limited to few people
Excludes millions and millions
Is a separating love from All and Oneness
Is a chosen love, not a love for everyone
Thus subject to conditions
Love with less understanding, less consciousness
That smells like ego, mind

Love on the level of the soul
Loves everyone, the whole creation
Is unlimited, embracing all and everything
Is sunshine for everyone
United in All and Oneness
Is a world-wide love, a love for all
Thus subject to unconditions
Love embedded in understanding, consciousness
That smells like roses and jasmine

May we all take a bath in the light of love
Love that is from the same essence as that of God
For all brothers and sisters in this world and beyond
For all creatures that God has created
Bathing in the Ocean of Love…without any borders…

Fingerprints of words


 

Words are fingerprints
Of each indivual
With borders drawn
By the mind

Words smell
Like prison and war
Among people
Clashing ideas

With tolerance and love
Words can unite
Bring peace
Connect humans

Words seek agreements
Middle way, compromise
In colours and expressions
Under one roof

Thoughts – brain-traces
Coming into being
Translated feelings, imaginations
Into framed words.

Here and there fences
Where people fight behind
Singly, collectively
Fingerprints’ defences

Light and Darkness


 

In light there is no darkness
In darkness there is no light
We often jump from light to shadow
And from shadow to light
According to our jumping mind

To stay in light
Thoughts need to be bright
Be sunshine
For no mine and thine
To empty our ego
With buckets of shadows
To fill the vacuum with light divine
To make us pure and fine

Darkness flees
When light is coming
Stars embrace the moment
Happiness bestowment
Open hearts with inner keys

Clenched fist


 

There is a huge difference
If you want to hurt someone
Or you are hurt by mistake
Without the intention to hurt

Then the mistake
Becomes violent
In response…

An escalation founded
On misunderstandings…

How much violence we see in the world
Based on misunderstandings?

Travelling home


all in all

 

Juggler between life and death
Opposites breaking up
Opening in torpid senses
Vacuum of all and nothing

Dreaming clouds of finity
Facettes of changing illusions
Within the breath of infinity
Bleeding time, bursting eternity

Beyond all words and forms
Eternal moment arises
Sailing in silence
The Ocean of no(w)-here

Embeded in white roses
A sea of golden light
Fragrance of pure love
Torrent of all times

Coming together all and nothing
Fragments of a bursted dream
Endless unity, oneness without beginning
Meadow of All-consciousness

Forms are losing their forms
Words fading away, sinking back
In the pool of namelessness
Merging, embracing divinity

Illusions lose their taste
Broken actors their acts
Silently in the wake-up
Finding oneself, sky of eternity

Justified judging – mission impossible


 

 

Justice and injustice
Are subject to sympathy and antipathy

To be without prejudice
When judging a man
Is not possible
Because we are not within the
Causal effects and causes
Of a person we judge and condemn
As we do not live the life
What another man lives

We have only
The tiny life excerpt
of one we judge
Not his overall view

However, we judge and condemn
As if we knew – everything
about that man

Why?…

Colour of God


colour-of-god

 

Some are so much confused
They mistake love for blind hate
Some twist peace with violence
While others hide behind the name of God
Commiting murder in their blind hate
A fire burns in them: – the fire of hell?
They come with lies and promises from ambush
Enticing other persons without shame
To infect them with their illness and fire –
Who do not know the difference of love and hate
Manipulating them as their marionettes
However, many good people are out there
Who really know from their hearts:
Love does not know any violence
As it is the true colour of God…

Do not think evil of others (a talk by Sant Kirpal Singh Ji)


 

DON’T  THINK  EVIL  OF  OTHERS 

(an excerpt from Sant Kirpal Singh’s book: “Mornings talks”)

 

Never hurt anybody. We hurt others by thinking ill of them. We think ill of others, we scheme. This is wrong, as thoughts are very potent. When you think ill of others that reacts to them like a telegraphic wire. You may not be telling anybody anything but if you think of them, radiation is there. Once Akbar, who was a great Emperor of India, was told by his minister that thoughts were very potent and that great care should be taken in what we think of others. Akbar asked his minister how he knew this. The minister said, “All right, I will give you a concrete example. Let us go outside.” So both of them went outside and they saw one man coming towards them at a distance of a few furlongs. The minister said to the king, “Look here, just think something about this man in your mind and when he comes near, you might ask him what crossed his mind at that time. You are only to look and think.” The king thought in his mind that this man should be shot. The man approached the king and the king asked him, “When you saw my face, what thoughts crossed you mind?” The man said, “Emperor, excuse me, but I thought that I should beat you with my fists and break your head.” So thoughts are very potent. If you think evil of others, the other man will react. You should be careful how you speak to people. If you speak ill to another and say “You are a fool” and things like that, or if somebody calls you a name and you react in the same way, what is the result? There will be a flare-up. A man calls you once, twice and that results in a fight. This is by words, their very root is the thought. A man speaks out of the abundance of his heart. Whatever is lying there, those things take the form of words, then words lead to fighting. So don’t hurt the feelings of others, in thought, word or deed. Even in very religious places, if a dozen men are working together they start thinking evil of one another, with the result that the thoughts radiate and react in another’s mind. You follow my point? The heart is the Throne of God. The body is the Temple of God. If you defile the Throne where God is, then who will sit there? So blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. Purity mainly lies in not thinking evil of others, in thought, word and deed. There are other factors too, but this is the main factor. Wherever you sit, even in an Ashram, if one man thinks of somebody else, that goes round like anything. That is just like a plague, an infection. A rat infested by plague goes around and spreads that infection everywhere. So this is a very strict condition, “Don’t be the unpaid apprentices of the C.I.D. of God. Don’t take the law into your own hands.” If you think good of others, you will radiate good. If you purify your mind you will purify the minds of others. By thinking ill of others, we spoil our own Temples of God first and then defile them. Outwardly, we are all right, quite clean, but our hearts are impure. We are defiled by thinking ill of others. We are all parts of the same machinery. If even one part is out of order, the machinery will stop working. So that is why it is said , “Wanted – reformers, not of others, but of themselves”. Charity begins at home. We should first reform ourselves. Example is better than precept. So today’s subject is “Don’t think evil of others, in word, deed and mind”. If you think of anybody else, always think good of them. Why? because they are your brothers and sisters in God. God is active in every heart. Our bodies are the Temples of God. If we think evil, first we defile our Temples, then we defile others. Instead we should think, “Peace be unto all the world over, under Thy Will O God.” This is what Guru Nanak gave out in His prayer. Let all the world be happy. How can it be happy if you defile everybody! So the foremost thing is, not to think evil, speak evil or hear evil of others. If you come to know something then it is for you to just keep it to your own self and try to privately tell others concerned for their own well being. We should not become reformers of each other. We should reform ourselves first. If we have sympathy for others, we should tell them privately what we think that they are doing wrong. Then the other person will care to listen. If a blind man is there, and you say, “O Blind Man” he will take it to heart. If we simply say, “Well dear friend, when did you lose your sight?” the purpose is served. There are ways and means to express. So speaking, you might say, is an art. The same words that carry a loving and peaceful effect can also create fire. This is what we have to guard against. So we should not think evil of others at heart, in mind, word or deed. God is not difficult to meet, but it is difficult to be a man. Man is in the make. God is seeking after a man who is a man. So when you are ready, God will come and also give you a commission. I went to London, I remember, on my first tour. There were two children about 7 or 8 years old, that were given Initiation for hearing. I asked them, “What do you want?” “We want to become Masters,” they said. “All right,” I said, “you have been put on the Way, improve, progress on the Way and you might be selected as a Master.” God is after finding out some man who is a man, so that His work may go on. It is not for us to pray for this, but for God to select who is fit for the job. Hankering or only propaganda to have that position which is not in man’s hands won’t do. It is a commission from God. I told the children, “Well, you may become a Master, that’s all right. You have been put on the Way, go on with it and you may be selected as a Master.” Each one has after all, to come to perfection. It is no sin. Every saint has his past and every sinner his future. This starts where? From our own self. First of all, we should not think evil. If there is evil in your mind, out of the abundance of heart a man speaks. That radiates, by thought and by word. First and foremost, this is the Teaching of the Masters. We should examine our own self and see how we stand, where we stand. Because these things are there, how can we aspire to become Masters! So purity of mind is essential. Let it not be defiled by the thinking of evil thoughts. You should pray for forgiveness. You should also forgive and forget. Generally, we don’t forget. We say, “Oh I don’t mind,” but that poison goes on working in our mind. That affects, sooner or later. So whenever anybody hurts your feelings in word or deed, forgive. Forgiveness is the only sweet water that will wash away all dirt. Justice won’t do it, mind that! If you want justice, then that will react. Forgiveness only washes away all dirt. Forgive and forget, this is the way to Spirituality. A man once went to Lord Buddha and began to insult Him like anything. He went on in this way for one, two, three hours, until it got dark. When night fell, he wanted to go away. So Lord Buddha said, “Well dear friend, just tell me one thing.” The man asked what Buddha wanted to know, to which Buddha replied, “If anybody brings some present to somebody and if that person does not accept it, with whom is it left?” The man replied, “With the person who brings that present.” “Well,” said Buddha, “the present you have brought, I don’t accept it.” So these are the things to be developed in us and lived up to. If you live up to them, your thoughts, your radiation will change. It is not a matter, I think, of acting or posing, it is a matter of living. The Masters used to say, “Those who live up to what I say, I am their servant, they are my bosses. I will serve them to the best I can.” Truly any son, who would be obedient to his father and would do all things what he wants, naturally he is most dear to the father. This is not done by mere outward assent, acting or posing, because the mind radiates. The Master knows the mind, not the outward things. These things are not explained in general talks. They are heart to heart talks in which you are being given these topics. The secret of success is to keep your mind unalloyed.

Tightrope walk


 

 

Man balances on a rope
High above gorges
Walks between love and hate
Between hope and doubt
Truth and lie
Freedom and captivity
Promises and breaking words
Faithfulness and unfaithfulness
Between honesty and show
Chooses the next step:
Up or down
Positive or negative

How many times he still has got to fall…

The right decision brings him up
The wrong down…

So let us be aware of our steps we take…
