We are so much convinced of our lies
Until we believe them to be true

God, an Ocean of All-Consciousness


 

 

God is described as the one supreme being, the unmanifest-manifested, the eternal verity, the conscious spirit pervading all forms that emanate from Him – He upholding all creation, but is immanent in every form.

God is nameless, absolute, but when He wished to become from one to many, His power came into expression. That power is known as Naam in the terms of the Masters. It is also known as Shabd, as Kalma, as Word, and other names. That power is the creator of all things, it is controlling all things.

God is an ocean of all consciousness. We are of the same essence as that of God: a drop of the ocean of all consciousness.

Opening of a new door


 

In the hall of back-doors
Seeds are sown
To secure oneself
Of being not alone

When a door closes
Replacements are there
To compensate the loss
For getting a bit attention

Eyes turning around
Harvest the fruit
Of what was prepared
Between old and new

Words appear as shining gold
Baits to catch the fish
To open a door
That will close in time

A door to another attachment…

When do we stop


inner flowers

 

When do we stop
Looking for advantages

When do we stop
Comparing us with others

When do we stop
Critizing others

When do we stop
Finding mistakes in others

When do we stop
Blaming others

When do we stop
Separating us from others

When do we stop
Being proud

When do we stop
Making a show

When do we stop ourselves
From being “ourselves”…

When do we learn
To love and live
And share and give???

The five cardinal virtues of spirituality – by Sant Kirpal Singh


 

An excerpt from the book: “Crown of life” – written by Sant Kirpal Singh

 

To cultivate and develop the five cardinal virtues which constitute the bedrock of spirituality.

These are:
1. Ahimsa or Non-injury to all living creatures, and more so to fellow beings, by thoughts, words and deeds the injunction in this behalf being: Injure not a human heart for it is the seat of God. We must have respect for others feelings and tolerance for others opinions.

2. Satayam or Truthfulness: As God is Truth, we must practice Truth in all our dealings. If Truth resides in every heart, it must manifest itself in life and action. Be true to thyself and it must follow as night the day, thou canst not be false to any man. We must therefore avoid falsehood at all costs. It includes, besides downright lies, hypocrisy and dishonesty, suppresso veri [suppression of truth], and suggestio falsi [suggestions of false ideas].

3. Brahmcharya or life of Chastity: It includes continence in thoughts, words and deed-houghts within, for Chastity is life and sexuality is death. If we want to tread the Path of Life Eternal, we must be chaste and clean both within and without.

4. Prem or love for all living creatures and more so for all human beings. Let there be hatred for none. The entire manifestation is the handiwork of God and must therefore be loved and respected. He who does not know love, cannot know God.

5. Nishkam Seva or Selfless Service to all living creatures in sorrow and distress. If one limb of the body is in torture, the other limbs can have no rest. Service before self should therefore be our motto in life.

 

 

 

 

Playing with the truth


 

Like the season returns
Within the wheel of time
Life and death are reborn

Like the echo in the mountain
Mirrors back to our self
So our words and deeds resound

Unless we are really aware
Of the inner light and truth
Our sharing increases confusion

If we share without real knowledge
Our thoughts, experience, opinions
Are a contagious disease from mind to mind

If our motives are of good nature
And our deeds are a leaf in the wind
The credit goes to the street of darkness

May we fear of what we give and take
And turn our little “we” into His Will
To live divine knowledge, His sharing

Then we will understand
That nothing we can give from “ourselves”
So ultimately become His humble servant…

But sometimes we pretend to be humble
Not knowing that we cheat us, bear a mask
Just another way of the colour of mind

Seeing is believing…

How Sant Kirpal Singh met His Master 7 years before He saw Him physically


Dear friends,

Today is the Birthday of my Master`s Master, Baba Sawan Singh. This time I want to share with the story how Sant Kirpal Singh met His Master.
Thank you for your attention.
Love and Oneness

Baba Sawan Singh

 

Sant Kirpal Singh reports from His own life:

I used to pray: “Oh God, I’m convinced that without one who knows You, nobody can reach You.” It is a practical matter of self-analysis. God cannot be known by the outgoing faculties, by the vital airs or by the intellect. It is a matter of seeing: whoever sees can make you see. “I know there’s a need – definitely: all scriptures say so. I’m quite convinced, but where am I to go? Suppose I go to somebody who has not met You – what will be my fate?” I used to pray like that. “If You could reveal Yourself to the old Saints” – sometimes there are stories like that – “why can’t You do it in my case? I am convinced, I’ve great regard for that need; but there are so many Masters – whom shall I select?” With this, my Master (Baba Sawan Singh) began to appear to me when I sat in meditation or when I was doing something. I thought perhaps it was Guru Nanak. He used to talk to me. In those days there was the First Great War, and my brother was on the Indian front along the Persian side. I used to traverse along with Him and went to those places, here, there and everywhere.
The Guru appears when the disciple is ready.

I was very fond of rivers, ponds, water. Even in my young life, I used to go and sit by the waterside or some river, the whole night through, in a calm and quiet place. The running water helps a little to concentrate. So this went on for some time. In the meantime, I was first at Peshawar, and then I was transferred to Nowshera station: a river runs by there. I used to sit by that riverside for hours. Then I came to Jhelum side. That is also by the riverside, and I sat there for hours on end. I was very fond of swimming, too. (Just enter the river: if you’re not afraid, nothing will happen; it’s only fear that kills you. If you simply shake your foot a little or move your hands a little, you won’t drown.)

In the meantime I was transferred to Lahore: that was also by the riverside. I passed my days there. There was also the river Beas: “Let me have a look at that!” One Sunday morning I left by train and detrained at Beas station. There was an old man there; he was the station master. I asked him which side the river flows. He was (Bua Das), a devotee of the Master: “Do you want to see the Master?” – “Does a Master live here?” – “Yes!” “Where?” – “On the riverside.” I told him, “I have two things now. I’ll enjoy the river scenery and also see the Master at the same time.” Then he directed me there. Master was sitting upstairs; He was taking His meal inside. I went out and sat outside. After half an hour or so, He came out. I was wonder-struck: He was the same man who had been appearing to me for seven years before, from 1917 to 1924. I paid homage to Him: “Why so late?” He said, “That was the most opportune time that you are to come.”

So this is how I met the Master. “The Guru appears when the chela (disciple) is ready” – even to the most skeptical mind. Perhaps none of you has been so sceptical as I was; I was afraid, you see, lest I go to somebody who had not met God; and my life would be spoiled.

When I went to Him, then – once or twice, every Sunday I used to go – He looked after me like a father looks after his son coming: “All right, arrange this room, bring this bedding”, this and that thing. I requested, “Well, Master, don’t You worry, I’m here, at Your feet.” – “All right, now, you’ll have to look after this Dera (Ashram); go on with it. Those who come, you’ll look after them.” These were the words He expressed, the very first time.

The next time there was initiation – this was early February – and all were sitting in initiation. Master said, “You sit inside.” I will come. He gave initiation there; I was inside, sitting in His room. This is how I was initiated! I was waiting for Him; perhaps He will call me. I was sitting inside. Then He returned. I asked Him, “Will you kindly initiate me?” – “Oh yes, surely.” What the mystery of life is – what is a man, what is a soul – was solved in little or no time.

A qualification of a Master is given as one who can give you some experience. Some say, “All right, go here; here are maps to show you the way; go by this road, or turn right, then left; this or that.” Sometimes you have to hunt for hours, and you do not find the way. But a Master is one who gives you some experience to start with, who can appear and remove the dark veil by giving a sitting; and you can testify that it is so. You are not to wait until after death or until after many years. He does not tell you, “All right, go on; you’ll have it in due course.” You’ll find that it is so with most of the teachers: “All right, do some regular meditation; some reaction from the past might help you.” But the competency of the Master lies in the fact that He is able and competent to give experience to the learned or the unlearned, to a man off the street.

It so happened that there was some controversy when our Master became a Master – I mean, took up the role of the Master. (He was a Master, but He took up the role of the Master.) When others asked, “Why, how can you become a Master?” He was very polite and very humble. He never liked to get into a controversy. After they kept pushing the point, He said, “All right. Catch some five or six people off the street, make them sit, and give them some experience. I will also catch some, and then we’ll see who can carry it out!” That’s all: to give the ultimate goal and what to do to reach it. So this is how I met my Master.

Generally, when people ask me, “What is Your date of birth?” I tell them, “I have three birthdays: first, when I was born in the flesh; second, when I met Him inside seven years before; and third, when I met Him physically.”

These are the gifts of God. I was very afraid because generally you’ll find that Masters simply tell you, “Go on reading scriptures.” That is right; that is the first step. But you cannot have the right import of the scriptures unless you meet somebody who has that experience: he alone is able to give you an experience, to give you the right understanding and the right import of the scriptures. Because, what are the scriptures? They are the fine records of the experiences that the Masters had in their lives. Then, perform one ritual or the other; that’s all right for the preparation of the ground. But seeing is something else: it only arises when you analyse yourself, when you rise above body-consciousness and you testify that there is Light. A Master is also defined as one who can make the Music of the Spheres audible. Who can give you Light and Music of the Spheres? What are these two? These are the two aspects of the God-into-expression Power. God has no equal, no father, no mother – nothing of the sort. Only He who is Word personified can give you the experience of that Power, the very first day. Even the blind man has that inner eye, called the single eye. Scriptures tell us, “If thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light … If you shut the doors of the temple of the body, you’ll see the light of heaven.” That is called the third eye, or shiv netra; there are so many names for it. These are the basic teachings that give you the ultimate contact with that reality. Philosophies deal with theories. This is what is called mysticism: it gives you a contact with reality – that reality which came into expression. Psychology works at the level of the intellect. This does not work at the level of the intellect; it works only when you are intellectually stilled. In psychology and philosophy you have two: a subject and an object. And in mysticism, there is no duality: you have direct contact with the God-into-expression Power. The more you are unattached from outside, the more you have an ethical way of living, the more you come in contact with that Power; and, like an electric lift, it will take you to the place from where it emanated.

God came into expression from the wordless state as Light and Sound: “The Word was made flesh and dwelt amongst us.” That Power which manifests in some human pole is called the God-power or the Master-power or the Gurupower: Christ lived before Jesus, mind that, and lives forever. This is what St. John said. But we only ruminate over the scriptures, we don’t follow what is what. Once a man starts with the wrong thing, others follow him blindly. How many are there who can give you a first-hand experience? They may say, “All right, go on meditating,” and some may get an experience, but others may not. This is where the competency lies: because of the God in Him, not the son of man.

Someone asked our Master, “How should we address you?” He said, “Take me as your brother, as your father, as your friend, as your teacher. Just act up to what I say. When you rise above the body and you find Him inside, too, and there He is also competent to guide you, then you will call me by any name you like.”

Justification and confirmation


 

In the labyrinth of life
Dead ends are entered
With pride as a drive
Manipulated, mentored

False sights ensnared
In the light of others
Confirmed, impaired
Trap for sisters, brothers

A barb in the heart
To spread illusion
Mind of the art
Black blood infusion

Houses built on sandy grounds
With bricks of charming words
That leave the truth in wounds
To raise illusive worlds

Flattered ways prepared
Where feet are lost
With filth besmeared
The light in frost

Dressed in uniforms
Following the cross
Of worn out norms
In ignorance and loss

A chorus of praise
Along the sky
A costly price
So why…?

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…

Path of truth


 

Truth may diviate so much
Of how we understand our world view
That it would trigger a shock in us
Would we really see the truth
As it is

At once our whole conception of the world
Would be upside down…

Therefore: development is necessary
“Seeing is believing!”

May we all advance
On the path of truth

Travelling home


all in all

 

Juggler between life and death
Opposites breaking up
Opening in torpid senses
Vacuum of all and nothing

Dreaming clouds of finity
Facettes of changing illusions
Within the breath of infinity
Bleeding time, bursting eternity

Beyond all words and forms
Eternal moment arises
Sailing in silence
The Ocean of no(w)-here

Embeded in white roses
A sea of golden light
Fragrance of pure love
Torrent of all times

Coming together all and nothing
Fragments of a bursted dream
Endless unity, oneness without beginning
Meadow of All-consciousness

Forms are losing their forms
Words fading away, sinking back
In the pool of namelessness
Merging, embracing divinity

Illusions lose their taste
Broken actors their acts
Silently in the wake-up
Finding oneself, sky of eternity

DidiArtist, 01.02.2013

 

God and the world


 

World, a permanent change
Identified body
Journey into abyss
Shadow of light

Eternal God
Unity of all
Life in His breath
Sun without shadow

Worldly love
Crazy attached to pieces
Life in mirrors
Broken in fragments

Conscious love
All in One
Egoless giving
Compassionate Oneness

Worldly life conditioned
Sharing of one’s own
While divine light
Lives in service thankfully

Home


 

Can one feel the music of this word?
Is our home the place where we live?
Is it the village, the town?
The state we live in?
The planet we live on?
The solar system our residence?
The universe our home?
The dimensions and multiple universes?

Our true home is not in this world
It is our Father’s home

The soul is singing
Home, sweet home
Reflecting in the tears of eyes
Trembling within divine music
Vibrations like ripples
Sent out to touch home
From the market of this world

Yearning arises
With homesickness
Vibrating voices
Near and far
Penetrate the heart:
My children come home, come home

We are in this world
But not from this world…

Inner seeing – by Sant Kirpal Singh Ji


 

 

When you meet someone who’s one with the truth,
who knows who and what he is and has experienced the Lord,
your senses will turn inward through His help,
you will withdraw from the outer world
and you will be able to look inside.

Param-Sant Kirpal Singh

 
 

Unique ways


 

Some people like to play General
Are in love with greed on power
Some hide
Behind their knowledge
Some fish in troubled waters
Lose themselves in speculations
Some seek pride, satisfaction
In wrestling intellectually
Some want to have attention
Through self-pity
Some keep themselves high
To keep others low
Some use force
To detract from their fear
Some sow fire
And burn in it
Some know everything better
Not to be worse off

But some people lose themselves
To find themselves…

Multitude in Oneness


 

 

How many truths lie in this world?
As many truths as there are lives and things
Down to every form of demarcation:
Organic and inorganic

And yet these separated truths
Are united in one big truth
Like the single drop
In the Ocean…
