Mirror: – Karma


 

Karma does not ask
If anything is bad or good
It is just the mirror
Of our own thoughts,
Words and deeds

It pays back
In golden or iron coins…

Roots of mistakes


 
 

 
 

Mountains and shortcomings


 

 

When approaching mountains
They appear bigger
When coming closer towards our own shortcomings
They also appear like mountains…

There are many mountains in us
We do not see yet
Approaching ourselves
Will bring them to light

Process of becoming conscious…

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

Don’t make a mountain out of a molehill


 

Humans easily condemn
Use smaller mistakes
To make a mountain out of a molehill:
To turn a man into a bad guy
To put him into the drawer
For good
To dress him
With prejudices

Shouldn’t we all
See our own mistakes
Instead of others?

Two seekers after truth went to… story by Sant Kirpal Singh


 

 

Excerpt from the small book: “What is a true Satsangi”

Two seekers after truth went to a Master to be put on the way. What did he do? He gave them two pigeons and told them, “Go to some place where nobody will see you and kill them.” One man went out behind a wall, killed the pigeon and came back: “Master, I’ve killed it. There was nobody there.” The other poor fellow was hunting, knocking about from place to place, in many secret places, many lonely places, from morn to night. He could not find any place where nobody was seeing him. He came back: “Master, I’m helpless. I could not find any place where nobody was seeing me.” – “Who was it?” He said, “The very pigeon was seeing me.” When he went to kill, it looked at him. It was God in him. Just think. These are very simple things, but they are pregnant with meaning.

God resides in every heart. He also resides in you. He is watching our every action. Similarly, God in man, the Master, also looks to our shortcomings, but he does so lovingly. He wants to wash them away. So always remain in his presence. That is why Kabir said, “When the Master initiates you (Master is not the body; it is the Godpower working in him), he resides with you forever.” One thing: He is always present. Can you do any sin, tell lies, deceive others, act or pose? No.

5 Pet Peeves


Medical camps in Kirpal Sagar and surroundings are available
to give free medication and treatments to poor and needy people

Dear friends,

A blogging friend of mine has nominated me to give 5 answers every day lasting 20 days. Thanks, dear friend 🙂
Here is her site: https://daysixtyfive.com/

Day 4:
5 Pet Peeves

1.) Seeing people starving in poor countries while others live in luxury

2.) Spending money on military purposes – instead of finding a peaceful solution for the whole mankind – sharing resources and that everyone has a place to live, enough food to eat and drink.

3.) Seeing our values of our society in a huge chaos, starting from education, media influences, and power control by a few people over millions of people. New noble values should replace old values: instead of violence it should become and honour to serve man, country, the whole world and one’s own soul -as service to man is service to God. Instead of sex-glorification in magazines, TV, books, advertisement etc. – we should focus on how love can become pure and spotless again without reducing it to the mare body-love and lust. Children and people should be prepared for the life in such a way that respect and honour play an important role in their lives.

Now, wherever we look we see a global decadence in human values. Noble schools should therefore come into being to teach values of positivity and not of destructions – then we have a chance to develop as a real human being…

4.) Religions should work together and not against each other – to see and understand deeply that we are all one and that there is only One, no matter what name we give to this ONE. Not necessary to dig new wells (create new religions – we surely have enough of them) – but it is important that a Muslim becomes a good Muslim, a Buddhist a good Buddhist, a Hindu a good Hindu, a Sikh a good Sikh, a Christian a good Christian etc. – to rise above the the narrow limitation that only one religion is right, has the right God and all the others are put on the side-track. We should learn to understand that we are all human beings or are all the others that do not represent our religion – aliens? No, they are humans as we are with the same birthright to return into our Father’s lap some day, our eternal home. We all are in the same boat and if one says because we see the sun shining from different angles and places: “My water looks green” – “No”, says another: “My water is blue” and again another: “No, my water looks grey and so on… – Isn’t water water? …

With real love towards God we will not leave anyone – everyone has our love – as it is His ONE creation, as God dwells in the temple of each heart. Not a single tiny wheel in the vast machinery of God is useless – the Ocean is a collective consciousness containing all consciousness what is existing… We are all unique and each of us has a unique way and connection with God…

5.) Men and woman should have the same rights and equally treated in respect, salary, appreciation

Final words: When we see God in everyone, automatically love and dignity can be developed – we may see them as one holy person said: “God loves the sinner but not his sins…”

Thank you again, dear friends, for taking your time to read this subject 🙂
