Fooling ourselves (2)

How can we trust ourselves
If we are not even honest to ourselves

This belief in ourselves
Is broken by the first lie

Then self-cheating starts…

Killing in the name of

 

 

Man is still more animal than man
He kills in the name of God
In the name of religion,
In the name of the state,
In the name of a people
Hides his motives
Is hungry for power
Starves for more
Speaks of love
But hates in reality
Speaks of peace
But dreams of conquest, campaign
Is ego oriented through and through

When will he learn
That no one is a stranger
When will he learn
That all are one
When does he learn
That all are brothers and sisters
Children of the same God?
When?

Is he still killing then?
Will he still go to war?

Or does he then understand
What love really is?

Man is still more animal than man

Throwing stones in the glass house

 

 

There are people
They do not only want to criticise
Know everything better
Actually want to punish
Have a hidden reason for it

As Nietzsche said:
“They attack to hide that they are attackable”

Let us pass them in silence
Wishing them all the best

Self-cheating

 

 

Not seldom do we things
With veiled motives
Hiding dully us from ourselves
From our consciousness
To remain unrecognized
In the shadow of other motives
So we ignore the true intentions
Living with a lie in front of ourselves
Not knowing this self-cheating
Feeling even good
Within these second-hand motives…

Is it so?

 

 

We are the good ones
We also say
We are bad
Our theater in front
Of us continues

We do not compare ourselves with others
We love the love
We hate the hate

We tell the truth
We do not seek advantage
We help others first
And then ourselves

Is it so?

Our life is just a big theater…

Honesty and Awareness

 
 

 

We are not aware of all our mistakes,
How can we then be honest
Where mistakes stay hidden?

Honesty goes along with awareness…

How much blindness is still in us?…

Arrogance and Pride

 

 

If we believe
To have tamed our mind
That we smile at
Then it is our mind
That smiles in our face

Another mask
A mirror of our thoughts
Prisoners of our mind…

Truth comes to the light

 

 

One can deceive oneself
Hide from others
Believe in his own fairy tales
Convince others to tell the truth
But the truth cannot be deceived
It is there like the sun
Even if clouds are blocking its light
The light of truth always shines
Penetrates all corners
No matter how dark it may be there…

How many sell their honour because of power and money?
Thus tell lies to maintain their egoistic advantages…

One cannot run away from the truth
Sooner or later it will catch up with you…

Missing honesty

 

 

How much nonsense goes out into the world
Out of stupidity, ignorance
Acting and posing
Out of greed for power, money, reputation
To achieve advantages
By a selfish attitude
To be better than others
To instill arrogance
Overconfidence
Dripping vanity
Condemnation
Unfair usage of elbows

Let us see the good in people
Because bad things create bad things
While good things sow good things

Therefore, we have to be more honest with ourselves…

Easily said…

 

How often we take words
Of beauty in our mouth
Copy them even from others
But do we live up to them?

We use words like “unconditional love”
For this our mind needs to be pure
Crystal clear, no dirt, no spot in it
Can we really claim, our mind is pure?

Frankly, I can’t, for this we have to know
All the tricks of our mind
And it is a trick of our mind
To make us say: we are pure in our mind

If our mind says: I am a good person
I love unconditionally, I am free from violence
If we claim this from ourselves
We should be alarmed at once

Our mind takes a certain attitude
Plays with us, with our feelings
Even with our reasoning
Pressing the stamp of appearance on us

In the end we believe it
Do not control it
Stay in a state
Between clouds and light…

Can we really love unconditionally?…
Can our dress really stay clean
When working in a coal mine?
