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 shape 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.

Inexpressible


 

Life is abyss
Between here and now
Ripping worlds
Creating breaks

Depth in knowledge
Disintegrates, separates
Birth of answers, questions
Break of being

Drop and ocean likewise
Search of sense of life
How and what
From where and where to

That what is
Is not
And that what is not
Is

Observer of being
With eyes from non-being
Incomprehensible comprehension
Multiplicity from void

Framed worlds
Woven in each other
Penetrate
Always wrestling

Foot in front of the abyss
Spirit without words
No being, no non-being
Thoughtless thought

Time without space
Light without shadows
Shadows unborn
Space without time

Creation…

Power seekers


power-seekers

 

Power seekers want
To control
Dictate and rule over people,
Use all means
Without scruples
To reach their goals

May God bless them
With right understanding
Respect people
Not prison them in fear
With their intrument of power
In their hands

May they see their own mirror image
To understand what they are doing
And stop abusing power
On the shoulders
Of millions of people

Kirpal Sagar – all Religions peacefully together under one roof


Dear friends,

In 2007 there was a World Conference on Unity of Man and it was the first time in mankind’s history that symbols of truth of all religions side by side were revealed in Kirpal Sagar during this unique celebration.

This is an example that all religions can live together in co-existence in harmony – as there is only One God for all – we all are His children. God created man but man created religions. They all are a help for us to think of God, remember Him and it is not meant to fight against each other (one religion against another). Only ego says: this is better, this is higher – we are all in the same school of life, and aren’t we living on the same planet?…

May we all open our hearts

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.

Know yourself – know God!


Everyone has in him, says a Saint, a pearl of priceless value, but as he does not know how to unearth it, he is going about with a beggar’s bowl.

The science of the soul

It is a practical subject and even to call it a religion of soul is a misnomer, for soul has no religion whatsoever. We may, if you like,call it the science of the soul, for it is truly a science, more scientific than all the known sciences of the world, capable of yielding valuable and verifiable results, quite precise and definite.

He who, by the power of the Word, finds himself can never again lose anything in the world.

By contacting the light and life principles, the primordial manifestations of God within the laboratory of the man body, we can virtually draw upon the “bread and water of life”, rise into cosmic awareness and gain immortality. This is the be-all and end-all of all religions, and embedded as we all are in the one Divinity, we ought to represent the noble truth of the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man. It is the living Word of the living God and has a great potential in it. It has been rightly said: “Man does not live by bread alone but by the Word of God.” And this Word of God is an unwritten law and an unspoken language. He who, by the power of the Word, finds himself can never again lose anything in the world. He who once grasps the human in himself, understands all mankind. It is that knowledge by knowing which everything else becomes known.

Man, know thyself

The only prerequisite for acquiring this spiritual treasure in one’s own soul is self-knowledge. This is why sages and seers in all times and in all climes have in unmis­takable terms laid emphasis on self-analysis. Their clarion call to humanity has al­ways been: Man, know thyself.

You will find all Masters gave that you must know yourself first, as self-knowledge precedes God-knowledge. The old Greeks had to say the same thing, “Gnothi Seauton”, “Know thyself!” The Upanishads say so, “Know thyself” and the Bible says, “Be still, and know that you are that.” So I mean to say there are findings of all Masters in all religions; and they have given out the same parallel thoughts, which are the same everywhere. God is to be realized.

Now the highest aim before us is to know God. All scriptures say so. But to know God, we have to know ourself.

How to know ourself?

By self analysis – by rising above body-consciousness. This physical body which is shaken off at the time of death – if we learn now how to leave the body, we will know we are not this body – we are the indweller of the body. We have got the astral body to work through the astral planes, and the causal body to work through the causal planes. If we just rise above all these, we know that “The father is working through me, and I am in the father.” “I and my father are one.”

You must know

You must know what you are, who you are.
You must know from where you came and how you came.
You must know your purpose of human life.
You must know all you did so far is fake and void.
You must know now you learn how to live and speak through life.
You must know your disease is within and remedy is within.
You must know all your questions are within and remedy is within.
You must know that still you need the help.
You must know your determination is a turning point in your life.
You must know you feel fully embedded with positive and potent thoughts.

Nameless sun


 

 

 

All we see the same
Mountain, sky, ocean
Give names what we grasp
With our senses

Different countries
Dress them in their language

Different cultures
In their own way

Different religions concrete
Their creeds by different names

Countries fear the otherness
Cultural infiltration

Cultures fear diversity
In habits and customs

Religions fear religions
Competitive exclusion

Translators, interpretors
Smooth the waves of thousand names
Are glasses to see same things
In same names and words

Countries, cultures, religions
Should put on those glasses
Then Oneness, not diversity, will appear
Based on humanity…

The sun does not hide behind names…

Power of discrimination


 

Most problems
In the world
Happen
Caused by
Misunderstandings, ignorance

Most misunderstandings
Among people
Come into being
Due to
Inaccurate assessments

Most inaccurate assessments
Between situations
Occur
Because
Of insufficient knowledge

So we have to learn
What is what
With the right
Angle of vision
To differentiate

Right differentiation
Puts us on the path
Of consciousness
Is a renunciation
Of judging other people

Seeing the world with blind eyes
Lets us put
Chaff and wheat together
Mixing the truth
Leading us to …

…a blurred and cloudy world
Full of problems, ignorance
In which the grapes of truth
Can only be eaten
With the sword…

…of the power of discrimination

Faith and Chaos


 

All is faith, belief
In different things
From different roots
Different points of views

Many believe in God
Others in chaos, chance

To deny God means
To claim to know everything
All causes and effects
To be “God himself ”
To be the “Whole One”
Even infinitiv “Whole One”
To say: There is no God…
– Is just another kind of belief

We believe in our intellect, mind
But is it really so trustworthy
As it likes to appear?
When it often changes its colours…
To become aware
That even our senses
Are kept in relativity

Is intellect the ABC
To explain everything?
But it fails to explain
What really life and death is

Utmost we can describe the world
And its functions
Do we describe an illusion
A cosmic dream?
Within the borders of names given?

We can deny everything
But we can also deny the denial…
And interlectually
We cannot explain everything…

So everyting is under the roof
Of believing, even non-believing

Trust in God gives us sense to our life
Otherwise leaves us in a state of Chaos
With no sense in it…

A logical way does make sense in a certain frame
But to explain the Chaos
With the logical Interllect
Which is reasoning on a “sense-line”
To deny there is a sense of life
To talk with a sense against the sense…
Is in contradiction to it.
To use the tool of sense
Against sense giving subjects

The only way out of this interllectual dilemma
Is – Spirituality: “Man know thyself”…
To dive into the depth of the Unknown
Wordless realms, into the Non-explainable
Boundless Unfathomable
United opposites…
To realize one’s own Self…

Well of the heart


 

Mind, self-reflecting sound
Hardly bears the silence
It comes with fear and doubts
Performing violence

In the well of the heart
The smile of sunshine always there
Is never far from you, apart
But comes with light and care

The mind may cry
To touch an empty wish
And feels so dry
Without the conquered dish

When mind is finally so still
It enters silent places
No longer in its will
But follows inner traces

So be in sunshine, not in doubt
Aware of inner voice
Embraced by light and sound
Without the worldly noise

New world


 

New rays of sunlight
Hope along the horizon
The morning is spreading
A change in the heart

Calls of seagulls
Announce the new day
Colour of unity
Golden beams of love

Old animosities vanish
In smiling open hearts
Turn into understanding
Handshaking sighs

Fights of differences
Learn to unite
Overcome old wounds
Space for a new world

A world of caring and sharing
With humans living peacefully
Together hand in hand
Under one roof:

One world
One universe
One Love
One God for all

Touching thankfulness


 

Thankfulness in my heart
We walk together
Here and beyond
Oh, Lord in my heart

Thankfulness in every pore
Of my spirit and body
Living in the ink
Of your pen, writing my life
Oh Lord in my heart

Thankfulness in my breath
Heartbeat follows your will
Colours my thought
Along sandy streets
Oh Lord in my heart

Thankfulness in my soul
Sunshine in each step
Because you are everywhere
And I – a borrowed lifetime
Oh Lord, Life of my life

Dawn of mankind


Let us stand together
As humans, to live
Unity of man
Overcome hostilities

Let us lay down the weapons
Thoughts of violence
Like ulcers in our heads
Overcome what separate us

Let us treat as humans
As brothers and sister
Remove selfishness
Overcome conflicts

Let us be an inter-net
Of Love and brotherhood
Bond of service, mutual help
Overcome hate and greed

Let us widen our hearts
Welcome all people
As part of ourselves
Overcome better and worse

Let us simply be humans
Helping each other
In good and bad times
In the light of humanity

Let us begin to bear responsibility
Each one of us – today
To see a better world tomorrow
A mankind of love and peace

Ocean of Life and Being


 

We all are one
Millions and millions
Of drops, living consciousness
We are unity of man
Not separated from each other

When this understanding
Dawns in our heart
– Then we really know:
We are all brothers and sisters
In the Ocean of life
Forming the higher Self
– Collective Consciousness
Oneness – God

Then we will begin
To have real respect and love
For everyone – in the connection:
Brotherhood in Fatherhood…
All in One
And One in All

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

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…

The science of the soul – (Part 3)


 

 

 

Dr. Harbhajan Singh, Sant Kirpal Singh, Biji Surinder Kaur

 

The science of the soul – (Part 3)

The whole text can be read here:

http://spirituality.unity-of-man.org/en/spirituality/god-spirit-and-soul/357-the-science-of-the-soul.html

Guru Nanak has extended a loving invitation to all. The Master tells us that we have a purpose in life. Have we ever cared to think why we have been granted this physical existence? Human birth is really a great blessing. Man is the roof and crown of all the creation. Man is a rational being, and this is what differentiates man from the rest of the creation. He has been gifted practically with the faculty of discrimination to distinguish between right and wrong. It is for him to make the best use of his intellect and develop in him consciousness of the soul, which is lying dormant at present. Guru Nanak, therefore, reminds us that to attain Amrit, the divine nectar or the water of life, we should go to a living Master, who has access to the spiritual fountainhead and is competent to lead us to it. The living Master enjoys a supreme status. He is the very life and light of humanity. “Son knows the Father and those whom the Son reveals,” says Christ. The Master-souls are the children of light and come to diffuse the holy light among those who come to them. The Vedas pose a pertinent question: What is that thing having attained which one is fully satisfied and desires nothing else? And then go on to explain that the crown of life is the realization of God, attaining which one enjoys perpetual bliss and harmony. Soul is a conscious entity. It is a drop of the ocean of all-consciousness. It is gifted with all the attributes of the Lord. Kabir tells us that it is of the same essence as that of God. Muslim divines regard it as Amar-i-Rabbi, or the essence of God. It is due to the misdirected attitude of mind that it is overtaken by wild passions. So, when the soul is analyzed from the body and liberated from the meshes of the mind and matter, it can, once again, wing its way to the elixir of life within. It is the holy Naam – the holy Shabd or the audible life stream that the Master reveals to those who come to Him. It is the central theme of His teachings.

You may better understand it through a parable. Criminals are sent to the prison to serve their allotted sentence. A dignitary goes there and finds that the prisoners do not have adequate living quarters. He sanctions a large amount for the construction of good ventilated rooms for them. Another one goes there and discovers that the food for the prisoners is no good. He allots more funds for this purpose and the inmates are served with good food. Both of them have done a good deed, each in their own way. Another man – the master of the prison – goes there with the prison keys in his hand. Out of compassion he opens the prison gate and allows the prisoners to escape if they like. You will agree that the last man has done a magnificent service by providing the prisoners an opportunity to be free again. The world is a large prison-house where each one of us is serving his term, the allotted span of life. We are mightily engaged in the various pursuits of life with no knowledge of the free life beyond the prison walls. The Master has the key into the realms beyond; and when He comes, He throws open the door of the prison-house and invites us to take our chance of breathing the free air outside. Those who take the chance are blessed indeed. In the succeeding verses, we will know of various factors that qualify a person to gain liberation for the soul.

Leave off artificiality, all outer forms and thy wit, for in duality and uncertainty you cannot get any spiritual benefit.

The Master tries to pull us out of our deep slumber. In compassion, He shows us the way to freedom. He asks us to simplify our life. It is a blessing to be born in a temple, but a sin to die in it. Just as discussed earlier, it is necessary to remain in the religion to which one belongs; but while remaining there, one must learn to rise above all religious and social barriers, expand the self so that it embraces the entire humanity, nay all the creation, and realize the principle of the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man. Once a person rises above body and bodily limitations, blinkers fall from his eyes and he sees his Self in all and all in his Self. All the narrowing prejudices of nationality, race, and tribe sink far below, for now he belongs to the one great family of man. We take up certain religious beliefs with the purpose of spiritual enlightenment; but after some time, we find to our regret that we are bypassing the very purpose of life and are caught up in a vicious circle of forms and formalities. One must be cautious to see which way the wind blows and how he is faring. Again, I want to emphasize that the basic concept of all religions – spiritual enlightenment – should never be lost sight of. We must keep the bull’s eye constantly before us if we are out to be a good marksman. A lover of the Lord must, therefore, love God with all his soul, with all his mind, and with all his might. Too much of formalisms and formalities will necessarily bring in doubt, suspicion, and duality. There is a world of difference between an intellectual and a spiritual man. The two are poles apart. A philosopher deals with theories, while a mystic deals with the reality alone. Hence the need for disenfranchising the self from all limiting adjuncts that keep the soul smothered under the dead weight of rites and rituals.

O mind, be thou still and not run into the wilderness.

It is in the stillness of the mind that one can see the face of divinity. A close study of the subject will show that the mind is generally in the grip of the senses and the latter are helplessly rushing out into the fields of sense-pleasures. In the Hindu mythology, soul is described as riding a chariot of the body with intellect as its driver, the mind as reigns, and the senses as powerful steeds which are whirling it restlessly into sensual enjoyments. So the first step for a spiritual aspirant is to control his senses and save himself from falling unwittingly as prey to the temptations. It is said that we receive 83 percent of our impressions through the eyes, 14 percent through the ears, and rest of the three percent through other organs. Just see how needlessly we are rushing head long into the wild drama of life! The Master not only guides us on how to free ourselves from this captivity, but actually offers a better substitute to the mind in the form of inner light and sound current or the music of the spheres.

To be continued…

Source of Unity, Oneness


 

If we do not longer see us
Separated from woman and men
Cultures and nations
Religions and ideals
Skin-colours and systems
Which are our outer lables
Then we reach the core in us:
That what unites us
Connects us
Makes us ONE
– The human in us

From there we can start
Without barriers between us
From there our mutual love
Can grow in harmony
The source of all humans
– To be humans…

Let us treat as humans
– And not as outer lables…
…Then all outer lables
Differences, so-called separations
Lose their fenses, borders and win
Respect and harmony
Humanity for humanity

Marriage of head and heart


 

When our head says: go
But our heart says: stop
Where does it lead us to? –
Towards insecurity and doubts

When our heart says: go
But our head says: stop

When heart and head get married
There is a bondage of unity and oneness
Where does it lead us to?
Towards happiness…

A clear Yes, a clear No…
