Wrong decisions


 

Sometimes we make decisions
Without background knowledge
Thus decide wrongly…

What is meditation?

The purpose of meditation


 

 

Blessed are those who meditate for the love of God.

Nowadays, meditation is done like breakfast is taken. Some people meditate to fulfill their wishes, some meditate for peace of mind. Some people meditate to gain riches in the world, name, and fame. Some people do it only for the building of the body, to get rid of the diseases. Some people make a show of their meditation, there are mesmerism, spiritism, spiritualism, there are hundreds of branches out of it and they have nothing to do with spirituality, on the contrary, they are dangerous traps for the soul. Some meditate to acquire supernatural powers, some meditate to influence others, and some people meditate for salvation. With these aims, however, one stays on the level of mind and cannot reach the plane of consciousness. There are thousand ways of meditation, which will not take us anywhere.

Better not to meditate than to meditate in the wrong way

To meditate only with the help of mind, to meditate to fulfill wishes, is a death trap for the soul. The astral plane is fully controlled by the negative power and is open for everybody. The experiences given by the self-styled “masters” are merely astral experiences. If you want to go to the astral plane, you do not even need a master, because the mind itself will take you there. In any way you will come there into the clutch of the negative power, you will lose your free will, your consciousness, and discrimination power, and you will be further bound in the net of transmigration.

So it is of great importance to find out what is that meditation, which will transcend us above the body consciousness and take us back to home eternal. Which is that meditation, which provides us the Water of Life and Bread of Life?

The subject meditation is directly connected with the purpose of human life, the development of the consciousness – the soul or spirit in man. The highest aim of life is self-realization and God-realization. But who meditates out of yearning and love for God?

To meditate without competent guidance, to perform yoga practices and to go into the chakras and use the Kundalini-power means to get lost in the astral and causal plane

Those who stress at the place between and behind the eyebrows and try to meditate by themselves, or practice various yogas, go into the chakras and enter into the astral plane. The chakras are controlled by astral forces that reveal themselves as gods and goddesses or angles. They are not conscious and of no help to man since they do not know the Father. They are of no use. They can only fulfil your wishes.

Many people go down into the body, their Kundalini-power opens and, coming from the spine, it rises from behind to the top of the head. The light and sound one experiences there is negative, it has nothing to do with the experience given by a competent Master.

Dr. Harbhajan Singh

 

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…?

Power game


 

 

There are always only a few people
Who decide over war and peace
While the common people suffer
Mostly in the event
Of an escalation between nations

They are the pawns
Of a strategic power struggle…

Lost in arrogance


 

 

Good and evil kindled
Fire of the mind
Are we sitting in the front row
As the good guys, play the game
Justice: better and worse
A trick of cunning treachery
To reap advantages
Willing to die in this battle
As a slave of the mind

To measure ourselves in search of adversaries
Emerging as a winner
Judging, appraising
Scale of equality
Weighing in our favour
Without the host’s bill
Same gambling everywhere:
With haggling, bargaining
To place one’s own person
In the right light

Lost seems to be who wins
Who doesn’t respect himself anymore
Looking for money and power
To classify man, use man
As a means to an end
An operation without dignity
Compassion, humanity
As lost humility
Intoxication of one’s own arrogance…

So-called masters


 

 

So-called masters

What a mire the world is lost in! It doesn’t know a Saint from a charlatan!
O my brother, just because someone has collected a group of followers, does that make him a holy man?

Kabir

It matters what we want to attain

Sant Kirpal Singh describes it as follows: There are Masters and masters, with due deference to all. It is for us to see what we get. Those who are after worldly things or supernatural powers or mind-reading or perhaps healing are really not after God. These are side issues. They get that thing and that is all; but they do not get God.

Why is gurudom in disrepute today?

Modern gurus are generally political at heart. They have an axe to grind – to make money and get honour and respect. They are not concerned with the well-being of the people. Their object is to impress the people by their hypocrisy, deceit and falsehood. You may be taken in by these methods.

What did Christ say: “Beware of the false prophets who come in sheep’s clothing but are ravening wolves.” They appear to be very polite. The only criterion can be one who can give you a lift, open the inner eyes so that you see there is light there; not tell you that you’ll get it in due course. What another criterion can there be, tell me? Their propaganda? No! There is no dearth of propaganda anywhere. Money can buy anything. Propaganda can be paid for. But what is the criterion? Can he open the inner eye, remove the darkness from within for you to see? There you say, “God is Light”.

Sant Kirpal Singh

 

So-called masters

“Tricky people create confusion and the confused follow them as their Master and out of confusion they do not leave. To create confusion in one’s heart is the act of “so-called poles” (who claim to be a Master or a competent teacher but do not have any competency). Directly or indirectly they are connected with the negative power. They themselves do not know the consequences of that play and cannot explain it to others. Preacher and followers are under illusion, which they think to be an act of God.”

“Miracles, which are a play of the astral powers, affect such people and bring them into the fold of the negative power. Those who enjoy the miraculous powers are devoid of the positive and the higher values of life, (they cannot regain them) till they really find the way to an awakened person.”

The miracles shown by those confused people are the outbursts of the astral effects in the physical world and bring them lots of diseases of the mind. Thus the diseases of the mind are due to the astral effects on the mind. In other words mental diseases or the diseases of the mind are astral diseases. Most of the people wish to gain peace of the mind, and they can be easily misled by the negative power and the astral effects upon them.

Very rare are such people who have no desires and whose wishes are fulfilled without having any desire. They are the blessed ones to whom God reveals all they need. All others are thus (due to their wishes) bound in giving and taking, since there is no (possibility of getting) free out of grace without the gracious Master. Thus all such people lose their capital, and the interests are increasing till they have lost the whole capital and also the positive vision.

Its likings in an always finer and more subtle way, and there is no end to this desire. Thus one feels even more happy when one sees something in the astral vision. But he is ignorant and does not know this play which is mere smoke and dust. The miracles which appear due to one’s wishes, affect one’s mind and the thoughts remain involved.

The fruit of life is within the belief of the Master

One may outwardly pose like a Master, one may create oneself to be a holy person and start proving a great holy personality with the help of bookish knowledge, but the inner life is not changed. For how long will such acting and posing continue? At last the cat will be out of the bag. For how long will people trust?

One may put a silken cloth on dirt, the bad smell will be emitted from there. Acting and posing have taken the place of true living. Those who act well are taken into good books. When people have bitter experiences for want of their demand, they call names (him who was not able to give them something). They should (complain), since they had given their head and heart. So Master says, “Believe only when you see yourself.” Without seeing, sometimes belief becomes a mystery and to solve it may take one’s whole life.

Master tells us: “Reading, writing, feelings, emotions. drawing inferences are all subject to error, seeing is above all.”

All worldly disputation is fake and futile.

There are two knowledges – one of the heart and the other relating to bookish knowledge. The knowledge of the heart is light and full of intoxication. It is easy to carry either during life or after life. Whereas the bookish knowledge is a burden of many sighs and is difficult to carry.

Saints have respect for the bookish knowledge provided one moves further to attain it in practical form. Otherwise this theoretical knowledge is liable to forgetting. In the scriptures there is written about God, but God is not there. Without the practical knowledge, there can be strains of various degrees, which leads to illusion and delusion.

The “so-called saints” in the world are devoid of that practical knowledge but are well versed with the theoretical aspect of life which they have grasped from the experience of others. They advise others (inspite of) their fake and suspicious conduct. They preach the truth but they act the other way. There is the difference of day and night between their inner and outer life. It is highest time to rely on the experience of our past competent Masters, which are in accordance to the holy scriptures, and to develop the sincere wish to have those experiences ourselves. And this very same experience we should demand (from a Master). One should create a ruling passion to get the highest gift of life and never remain (contented) in those experiences limited to one’s intellect and mind. Where the world’s philosophies end, there the religion starts. The physical, astral and causal region are the worlds made by physical, astral and causal matter, and they have no importance for us and have nothing to provide. Whatever exists there is not the heritage of the soul, but is rather the food and heritage of mind and intellect. What the soul wants is the longing (for God) and the reunification with Him.

Right understanding 7 – by Sant Kirpal Singh


My dear blogging friends,
Here another continued video of the series: Right Understanding – by Sant Kirpal Singh

Good digestion
Didi
 
 

 
 

They cannot be mistaken…


 

When many people do the same
It is not the guaranty
That this is the right thing
What they are doing

Truth cannot be backed
By a large amount of people
Based on quantities
But founded on qualities

In this way many are mislead
Inspite of their argument:
Many cannot be mistaken…

Blessed are those with right understanding…

Right Understanding 6 – by Sant Kirpal Singh


 
Dear blogging friends,
 
The series of videos about “Right Understanding” by Sant Kirpal Singh continues.
 

 
Thanks for your attention 🙂
 
All the best
Didi

It is not seldom that…


 

 

It is not seldom that we show ourselves
As the good, the infallible ones
Looking down on others
Measure them, judge them

It is not seldom that we compare ourselves
With people around us
Loading guilt on their shoulders
To rise above them

It is not seldom that our gaze
Is dyed in Higher and Better
To demonstrate flawlessness
Humiliate our fellow men

It is not seldom that we exhibit
How great and good we are
Catching applause, reward
Carelessly, arrogantly

It is not seldom that we seek victims
Who pay the price
For our fallibilities
That we hide from others

To lose oneself, to find one Self


 

 

Only when we lose our identity.
We can act selflessly.
As there is nothing
To cling at, attach with

Then we become actless doers
Dive in Oneness, become one with the One…

DidiArtist, 28.10.2018

 

Play of the mind


 

Far and near perspectives:

If we see our world from far
All is one, united
If we come closer
All is separated

Separation in Oneness

However, in reality
There is no far, no near
All is connected, one
Beyond separation

Macrocosm lies in microcosm
And microcosm in Macrocosm

We see the world
According to our understanding

All is a game of the mind…

We need to change
The angle of our perspective…
To change our understanding…
Develop right understanding…

Searching for perfection


 

 

Perfection lies in the imperfection
It can never be reached
But is a way
To become better and better

Same as with consciousness…

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…

The competency between the Sant and Param Sant differs


 

 

Dear friends,

Another video about the competency of the Param Sant.
Enjoy and all good wishes.

Quote by Kirpal Sagar (youtube member):

Yogis leave the world, Rishis, Munis leave and the Sant who is sent by God leaves the world, but the Param Sant (God Himself) never leaves… …with Him we must come in contact.
