Eternity, transitoriness


 

 

The body is transitory
Like a wave in time
Which changes constantly

The power that dwells within
Is mysterious silence, sound
Light and eternity

Outside everything changes
Inside rests the eternal now
Timeless ocean, golden love…

In the labyrinth of body and mind







Intertwined inside and outside
Corridor of infinite paths
My soul on the raft of search
Where no walls outside and inside

Where outside and inside stops
To exist as an appearance
Where a gate opens inside
Leaving the labyrinth of deception

Where the exit calls:
One in the One – Oneness
Tap on the door
And it will be opened onto you…

Knowledge: outside and inside


The outer knowledge
Shallow water
Easily gets dirty
However, the inner knowledge
Is flowing water
Pure, clear and fresh
In deep waters…

Book-reading is food for the mind
Spiritual reception is food for the soul…

The inner book is written
By one’s own life…

Darkness cannot be overcome by wearing white clothes… quote by Kabir


 
 

 
 

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…?

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…

Mind outside – Soul inside


 

 

The soul is a silent observer
While our mind fishes in outward appearances
Turning its attention outwardly

When the mind turns inwardly
It shuts itself off
And the soul shows up…

Inside Out


 

 

The water of life
Is not boiled outside
But inside…

Deceived and fooled


 

You led me to the market of the world
Bazaar of trade and desires
You showed me treasures
Beauties, attractions

No breath without show
Attention without direction
I got stuck in my senses
Deceived by the splendour of the world

You came with promises
To find everlasting happiness
But your happiness is bound
At the post of time

Everything passes like sand blown away
And you still say:
This is my home, my wealth of the world
Yes, it is your house, built on sand

You pretend: eternal happiness
Eternal home that falls apart in your hands
Breaks to empty illusions
You deceive, seduce, kidnap

The truth is not outside
It is within me
That you trample all over
With lies besmeared

You live for my death
Though you get all the strength from me
You go the way out
And not the way in

You are my constant companion
Shadow of my light
You control, you direct
Set directions

Time to change roles
Since you are a bad master
But a good servant
So follow me, my mind…

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

Outside Shining – Inside Fouling


 

 

How many angles and corners are there in us
Where chaos and disorder reign
Where dirt accumulates
Dust is setting down?

How many impurities are in us
Which we have neglected
Falling into oblivion
Where no external soap helps?

On the outside nice and clean
Well-groomed appearance among witnesses
Inside without hygiene
There’ s no one watching

But inner dirt
Moves motives on the outside
Hidden, concealed
Determines our thoughts, actions.

Our internal residence
Like a mirror:
What is inside is outside
What is outside is inside

We should be dust and germ-free
That the inner dirt
Does not become external dirt
With the soap of innocence and honesty

We cannot hide from ourselves nor from God…
