On a larger as well as on a smaller scale


Nations fight nations
Towns in rivalry
Hate arises
Violence at the horizon

Villages set boundaries
Sports atrophied into enemies
Exciting the minds
Polluting hearts

Families fight families
Blood-filled hatred
Tear the right
Trample on respect, human values

Bothers and sister
Clashing minds
Radiate their ego:
Envy and competion

Where lies this evil?
In our own mind
Root of good and evil
Changing in the wind

Time to get down
To the root of our troubles
Time to understand
Who we really are…

Man know thyself…

Pride between opinions


 

Opposing views
May be so much repelling
That they create huge walls
Between themselves and human beings

It is the pride
That lies in-between
Inability, attachment
Blocking them to come closer

Old paths well-trodden
Unproved, unchecked adopted
With little or no experiences
Teeth defended grindingly

Built on half-truths and less
Binding affinities
Clinging to personal conviction
Lashed views

Oneness broken in opinions
Show that something is wrong
When people go apart
Leave the circle of unity

Separation versus Unity


 

There are many trees in a forest
And so are many people in this world
The tree does not see the forest
And man does not see mankind
The single drop separates from the water
Searching for the water
But we all are One
One forest
One mankind
One water

Separation is fear, is ego, is shadow
Unity is love, consciousness, life and light

Should we continue to live in this shadow
In the mirror of our mind?

Our destination is –
See Oneness
Understand Oneness
Live Oneness

Once we see, understand, live Oneness
We become Oneness…

Seed of life


Nothing comes from nothing
But life comes from life
All is already there
Sleeping as a seed of time

Life itself manifests
Is dormant in Nothing and All
Expresses its light
Along the breath of time

Oneness bears no life, no death
But a move- and formless Being
Ready to give birth
A life within a life

Dream of here and now…

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

Lack of Determination


 

 

Whoever has his chair between two camps
Will neither know the one place
Nor the other one properly

He sits on the chair of indecision
Is neither here nor there at home…

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…

Collective Consciousness


 

 

As the drop is not separated
From the ocean of all being
So is not man from man

Thoughts interact between people
In realms of subconsciouness
Communicate unknowingly

Synchronities demonstrate presence
In neural higher networks
Connect man through time and space

Living unities turn to
Higher thoughts, combined
As an Ocean of life

Reservoir of moving waves
Self-sufficient biosphere
Migrating life impulses

Oneness without a break
Void and abundance intertwined
Timeless, spaceless, formless

Voiceless voice, living light and life

Self-introspection


 

 

If we don’t look at ourselves in the mirror
To find the original reflection of it
Then we cannot see us either
Do not know who we are
What we are
Where we come from
Where we have to go…

Then the purpose of life
Is covered by our ignorance…

Man know thyself…

DidiArtist, 15.10.2019

 
 

Truth is ONE


 

One is the truth
Is like the sun
Which embraces us
With her sun-races

Some feel more light
Other less…
We are the ones that separate us
From the sunlight in grades and shades

However, truth is ONE
Eternally and unchangeable
Is beyond time and space
Life and death

God is this truth
Silence of true life
Is light without shadows
Love without spots

Right Understanding – by Sant Kirpal Singh (part 5)


 
 

 

 
 

Beyond the mind


 

When do we see
Not with eyes
Of mind
The truth?

When do we hear
Not with outer ears
The sound of love
The silence alive?

When do we taste
No longer pleasure, power
But food of light
The inner sight?

When do we smell
No longer profit, advantage
But sweet compassion
Fragrance of unity?

When do we feel
Divine touch
That all is one
The inner sun?

So let us share respect
Love for everyone
As all we are a ray
Of such a loving sun

So let us live the inner world
Beyond the mind and senses
And bring the light of oneness
Awakening of our hearts

DidiArtist, 07.10.2012

 

Right understanding badly needed


 

 

Out of misunderstanding
Lack of understanding
The whole world is on fire

Misunderstanding and ignorance
Lead to hate and separation
Is an expression of our ego

May love and benevolence
Be the engine of our actions

May God bless everyone
With right understanding

The Teachings of the Masters (Man-making)

A man, according to the Science of Para-Vidya, is not entitled to be called a man in the true sense of the word, unless he has full knowledge, both theoretical and practical, of his distinguished position in Creation, his several component parts – body, mind and soul – in order of comparative importance, and of his relationship to the Unseen Power, called God, which is to be achieved while he is living on this earth. He who does not understand this much has not even been introduced to the first lesson and is yet to begin the Alphabet of Man The Saints, therefore, impress upon us the need for ‘Man-making’.

Satsang

When scientifically observed facts drawn from practice and experiment are explained verbally to a gathering by a Master Saint, it is called Satsang (external). This Satsang constitutes the theoretical side of the teachings; whereas the actual demonstration given to develop and achieve inner advancement is the practical part, called meditation or Satsang (internal). Conscientious practice brings fruit within days or weeks and it is not necessary to wait years for results, though progress also depends to some extent on one’s past background. A true Master gives a first-hand inner experience at the very first sitting. When the practical side is neglected due to lack of firmness or determination, carelessness or pressure of circumstances, scholars of many religious schools dwell more and more upon theory alone. The decline of the science then commences and man finds no solace. This is usually the case when a master leaves the body. Adequate provision however is made for the revival of this science in every age, when both the positive and negative powers commence their rounds again: the former through the agency of Master-souls, while the latter works through persons – so-called masters – who lack practical experience or are lost in theoretical disputations. Master-souls, though quite ordinary men in appearance, are a great deal more. Just as it is difficult for us to judge a scientist, a doctor or an engineer until they speak out or display their skill and knowledge, so too we cannot recognize the knowledge and authority of a Master until we have experienced the Divine Power working through Him.

In this science there is no secrecy or mystery. The objective is constructive and beneficial to all, and so the Saints have torn aside the curtain of secrecy which usually covers mystic teachings to make them available to each and every one who calls. There is an Unseen Power working through the Saints. Why this Power prefers to remain concealed from the human eye is a question to be asked directly by contacting the human pole through whom this Power is working. This is the only medium of approach to this Power. If we wish to use electric energy we must go to a switch or pole which will put us in contact with the powerhouse. The Unseen Power may be called a Sea of Love. When we wish to bathe in the sea, we go to the edge where the shallow waters begin and then say that we have bathed in the sea. Thus, to experience this Power and to derive benefit from it, we must go to the only source of contact – a Master Saint.

Thoughts move


 

 

Thoughts move the world
Influence our now
As we are all connected
Not separated
Because we are all
A collective being
One consciousness…

Separation and unity


 

When looking with the eyes of our mind
We see things from far united
If we look closer
All divides more and more
The deeper we look:
Outside: Separation

But when we look closer
With our spiritual eyes
All unites more and more
The deeper we look:
Inside: Oneness, Unity

Sharing peaceful nature


My dear friends,

These photos were taken on a trekking tour in Finland close to a lake and I enjoyed this peace given by the beautiful nature.
Birds sang their sweet songs around, the light of the sun sparkled and flickered on the lake, smooth waves were gently touching the shores and nature my heart.

It is a kind of reflection remembering the time when all was still normal giving us hope to return to our everyday life and appreciate all those little things life offers us.
Stay safe and healthy, dear friends 🙂

Borrowed acknowledgement


 

Born in the dust
With hands hurt
Through barbed wires
Arising from moments

Left in the corner
In ice-cold smiles
Eyes searching for help
Asking for mercy

A deal in the air
Between stumbling words
And false promises
To grant a piece of affiliation

Time covers the root
Forgotten is the deal
Found in resonance
Flattering words

Life continues in darkness
Not knowing of the trap
Thinking of love and light
Imprisoned in the night

My heart is with them…
May they awake from sufferings, dark dreams
Newly born in conscious light
Of love and happy life…

Connecting link


 

 

There is one religion
It grows within
The religion of love

Is beauty of a flower
Spreading its perfume
From man to man

This love connects
Creates unity
Beyond boundaries

Unites planets and univerves
Is essence of life
Lives in the hearts of every man

Religion of love
On the level of man…

Broken mirror


Mind is like a mirror
That is broken
Into time and space
Into myriads of fragments

A broken piece sees broken pieces
Same identifies same
Duality recognizes duality
But still remains a fragment

To rise above duality
Is to bring together
All to be One
To lose the pain of separation

All stars come together
Spread its light
Beyond time and space
As One Sun of Love

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.

 

 

Love beyond words


 

Loud are our words
In need of audience
Reflection to oneself
Conditioned, self pleasing

Hearts whisper
Across time and oceans
Painting love
On empty papers

Fractions are playing
Drawing symbols
In the timeless ether
Yearning to be one

Words of love
Appear in the air
Convincing, inviting
Veiling its origin

Captured in dreams
At the banks of the mind
Breathing joy and happiness
Juggling feelings

Ready for the puzzle?
Where love is is not the drop
Where love is is not the ocean
Where love is, is…

Unity of Man – Sant Kirpal Singh


The intention of the movement Unity of Man is to inspire man by the ideal set by Sant Kirpal Singh:

 

Be good – Do good – Be one

 

It invites all to unite in order to find out about the spiritual base of human nature and to promote a spirit of oneness.

The name Unity of Man carries the core message of Sant Kirpal Singh:

This human birth is our chance to realize the great truth of the oneness of life
vibrating in the universe – Unity already exists, we only have forgotten it.

 

Respect for the whole creation and love and tolerance for each human being regardless of colour, creed or nationality are the practical shapes of this ideal.

There is one hope for the world, and this hope lies in the spiritual link from man to man and nation to nation. This genuine hope will bring us together.

The problems of the world are not of political, but of spiritual nature, so we have to find the solution on the spiritual level, on the level of consciousness.

The change will begin from man’s heart.
Harbhajan Singh
