Human bridges


 

Let us build bridges
From religion to religion
Mutually bridges
Leading to God

No bridges
Of hate and violence
But bridges
Of loving essence

Bridges, which connect
Which do not seperate
The scaffold of humanity
Turning hate into love

Let us build bridges
Create brotherly love
Broaden our horizons
Leaving no wounds

As we all sit in the same boat
Are not black or white
Are connected lights
Drops of the Ocean Oneness

Dreaming together


 

 

World appears
My dream begins
Sailing on waves
Up and down

White sails – everywhere
In search for each other
Signalizing light codes:
Here I am

Sea gulls gliding
Through the air
Interchanging messages
Accompany the boats

Sunlight breaks
Through clouds
Touching foaming waves
In a ryhtmic dance

Eyes looking
For land to strand
Islands of dreams
To anchor peace

Awoken from this world
Dream of illusions
As separated boats
Floating through eternity

To see us sitting
All in One boat
Sailing through empty spaces
Timelessly connected

With One Captain on board
Bringing us ashore
Residence of bliss
Home in light

Name of this dream: – Life!
Name of this awoken dream: – ONENESS

A friendly smile


Dr. Harbhan Singh

 

 

A smile invites
Opens the heart
Communicates
Without words

A smile is
A hug of the soul
Where eyes meet
In joy and peace

A smile overcomes
Distances between people
Is the symphony
Of the heart

A smile wins
Trust and confidence
Is harmony
Bridge of unity

A smile connects
Old and young
Is medicine
For all of us

Library of Kirpal Sagar


Dear friends,

Here some more information about the library of Kirpal Sagar.

I send my greetings from my heart to all of you
Didi

 

 

Library

A person who lives in the world must know who he is, what he needs, where he can get it from, how he can get it and who will give it to him. Reading and analyzing all the Holy Scriptures, one learns something about the higher values of life, that is the meaning of the library.

Dr. Harbhajan Singh

In the library, especially the Holy Scriptures of the religions will be available, as well as biographies of great personalities and philosophical writings. Here you will find exhibitions focusing on spirituality.

Today we are confronted with a multitude of scriptures that have been written in different times and in different languages.

Already in the Upanishades it is said that there is only one truth, although it is described in different ways by the saints and wise men. Ultimately, recognizing it is a matter of inner experience and not of understanding on a purely intellectual level. The writings give valuable clues to this original inner aspect, which is common to all religions, just as we find many similarities in the ethical guidelines.

The external aspect of religion encompasses the doctrines of faith and the external forms of worship, which can be very different. If the inner core falls into oblivion, they gain too much weight. In this lies the danger that through narrow-mindedness and dogmatism religion becomes a bondage for mankind and can even become the cause of war and conflict. The library aims to encourage comparative study of religions and promote an unbiased viewpoint.

One of the exhibitions illustrates the basic unity of all religions through various texts and graphic representations.

 


 

 

 

The science of the soul (part 1)


 

Spirit or soul

What is soul?

The soul is a ray of His (God’s) thought. Soul is a ray of His wish. The soul felt its identity when it was separated from the ocean – the ocean of consciousness, and for that it had to assume different forms. It bears the physical, astral and causal body and is living in the material world, in the material nature.

Who knows, “I am the soul”?

This awakening and right understanding came out of its own self, from the soul, and it could know that it has to go somewhere, but it is tied in the body with mind and matter and cannot get out of it. However, the link is there. No one can separate the link from the origin.

The thought of that power awakens the soul.

You know, as the clouds burst in the skies and it rains on the earth, so does it happen with the soul. When the thought of that power, which is within vibrates, it awakens the soul in the body. The soul is not satisfied in this human body. The greatest help we can give is the help to the soul. It is the greatest selfless service, the service to our own self.

The Masterpower reminds us, “You are the spirit, you are the soul.” Man is the first creation of His thought. Everything else came afterwards.

The ocean lives in the fish

It is our ignorance that we think the fish lives in the ocean. That power is innate in the soul and due to Him we know that we are of the same essence as that of God. So the ocean lives in the fish and not the fish in the ocean. If we know that, we are nearer to the goal.

 

 

Dr. Harbhajan Singh

 

 

The science of the soul – (Part 1)

The whole text can be read here:

http://spirituality.unity-of-man.org/en/spirituality/god-spirit-and-soul/357-the-science-of-the-soul.html

With due deference to the scientific progress, man has ignored the most vital part of his life – the active life-principle in him, the soul, the very essence of life, or spark from the all-consciousness, an unseen and invisible power at the back of all creation. The Masters of the mystic science have been deeply engaged with the development of this mysterious power called life, and the results of their experiments are recorded in the form of various scriptures of the world. This sacred literature, in spite of the apparent diversities, reveals a marvelous uniformity at the core – a basic unity testifying oneness of the source – the immutable radiance of the divinity.

The Master-souls have come time and time again to grace this earth for the humanity’s spiritual enlightenment. They have left behind for our guidance the precious records of what they experienced within.

Ever since the first flicker of life on earth, man has been mightily engaged in search of happiness. He has made a tremendous progress in all walks of life. Take, for example, physical research. Many wonderful sciences have come to light: Unani system of medicine, Ayurvedic system of cure, Allopathy, Homeopathy, Naturopathy, and the like. All of them aim at the smooth working of the physical body. Surgery has progressed to an extent unknown before – the finest organ of the human body can now be replaced or transplanted from one to another. Similarly, man has taken long strides in the field of intellect. Man has not only conquered the forces of nature, but has pressed them into his service. You can hear and see a person from thousands of miles afar with the aid of a wireless set and a television. Man is now trying to probe into the mysteries of space and establish interplanetary relations. All these are the miracles of the scientific mind.

With due deference to the scientific progress, man has ignored the most vital part of his life – the active life-principle in him, the soul, the very essence of life, or spark from the all-consciousness, an unseen and invisible power at the back of all creation. The Masters of the mystic science have been deeply engaged with the development of this mysterious power called life, and the results of their experiments are recorded in the form of various scriptures of the world. This sacred literature, in spite of the apparent diversities, reveals a marvelous uniformity at the core – a basic unity testifying oneness of the source – the immutable radiance of the divinity. It is due to the lack of practical persons well versed in Paravidya, or the science of the beyond, that we are offered shadowy rites and rituals, symbolic of the great truth bubbling with life. So many faiths and isms fail to offer us a perfect solution of the problem of life. The maximum that priest craft can offer is a certain belief in the goodness to come in the distant future. Thus, most of the people devoted to the so-called spiritual enlightenment remain in their water-tight compartments, make-belief of religious affiliations, following a code of set principles with the hope that all this will ultimately lead to liberation.

All the established religious orders have their origin in some Master in the past, who in his own good time guided the people to a higher purpose of life – the spiritual perfection. Every flow is followed by an ebb in the affairs of man. To err is human and people generally relax into ignorance with the passage of time. The merciful providence, however, in the fullness of time, provides the world with the means of regeneration. Another prophet, a new messiah, comes on the scene to fan into flames the dying embers and tries to knit all his children into silken bonds of world fellowship.

Carousel of the time


 

 

Habits repeat
Day in, day out
Running in a circle
With man: as a hamster in the wheel

Circulations in microcosm
In macrocosm
Circular time
Rotating space

Summer and Winter
Spring and autumn
Return in the spiral
Of time and space

Everything turns, moves
Orbites the silence of being
Twists like DNA
Revives life

Flows back
As Divine Inhalation
No beginning, no end
Breath of eternity

Bent Spirit
Wave of coming and going
Rests within
Sustaining itself

The end drives the beginning
The beginning the end
The play of eternal repetitions
Divine Dream

Awakening in silence
Movements dissolved
Death and life overcome
Oneness flowing

Awakened from Maya, mind, illusion
Separated replicates…

Bridge of duality


 

Walking between yes and no
Choices made in moments
Along a ribbon
Called living experience

Changes on the path
Time lines, time spaces
Fixed in moments
Affirmative, negative

Yes becomes no
No becomes yes
Fruits beyond moments
Bridge of here and now…

Impressions of Kirpal Sagar


Dear friends,

Some more impressions of Kirpal Sagar (translated: Ocean of Grace), India.

Have peace in your heart and progress on your spiritual path.

With heartfelt greetings.
Didi

 
 


Sant Kirpal Singh started the project Kirpal Sagar…

 


…and commissioned Dr. Harbhajan Singh and…


…his wife Biji Surinder Kaur to build up this beautiful place Kirpal Sagar, where all wordl-religions are peacefully under one roof, where poor people are helped, where man can feel the “aura” of Kirpal Sagar, where spirituality, moral and ethic is taught and lived practically, where man can become a real human being, where respect, love and Oneness are lived in service to man, mankind, God and to one’s own soul.
 

 

 

 

Medical help is given to poor people as there is a hospital too and even doctors are coming from Europe to help voluntarily.
 

This is the first hand-equipment for poor people who normally cannot marry, however, Kirpal Sagar helps them and arranges their wedding celebration.

 

The students of the Kirpal Sagar Academy perform plays and dances when there are days of celebrations.
 

 

 

 

 
 
 

We all are humans, no aliens to each other!


 

Don’t we breathe the same air
Under same sunshine?

Don’t we come and go
The same way
Birth and death?

We may speak a different language
May have different skin colour
May belong to different countries
To different religions, creeds

However, we should not build fenses
That separates us
From human being to human being

We all are humans
Under the same sky
Living on the same planet

So let us treat each other as humans
And not as aliens

When do we learn this lesson?…

One Being – One Love – One Life


 

 

All is saturated
With Your Consciousness
In shades and grades
From the lowest to the highest
From the smallest to the largest

All Being is Your Consciousness
Everything has sound and colour
Everything rests in itself
Everything carries Your light
Everything is Your handwriting

Pure consciousness You are
Pure love, pure life
Your kingdom built with stones
Full of consciousness of any size, any kind
Conscious perfection

All is connected with everything
Nothing is separated
Flowing Consciousness through All Being
A Being of All and Nothing
Symphony of Light and Sound

Every atom, every particle
Is Your universe within us
Every sun, every star
Is Your colour, Your light
Every drop Your Ocean…

Climbing the inner mountain


 

 

During life, there is a meeting
Of people coming and going
Some walk with you
Some stay with you

Life-pathes fork, separate
Newcomers enter your way
Unite thoughts and words
Are with you

Own path loses friends
Breaks into loneliness
And from loneliness
Into Oneness

Opens a new gate
The door of being
Al(-)one and All One
Shutting the door of separation

We enter the world with tears
But we may leave it with a smile…

What is God, and how can we know Him? (Part 4) – by Sant Kirpal Singh


 

My dear friends

Continuing talk by Sant Kirpal Singh: “What is God, and how we can know Him”

The complete text can be read here, under the website of Unity of Man:

What is God, and how can we know Him? (Part 4)

So on these two commandments hang all other commandments. The Sermon on the Mount, the Eightfold Path of the Buddha, the Niyama yama and Sadachar of the Hindus all speak of the same thing, in their own languages and, of course, in their own ways.

If we live up to what the scriptures say, there will be peace on earth, and the Kingdom of God will surely come on earth. Then there will be no danger of any war. What a pity: these things are given in our holy scriptures, but we follow, if at all, the letter of the law at the cost of the spirit. That is the cause of discord.

All Masters came to unite men, not to separate man from man. They were the lovers of God, and they taught men how to love all humanity. You will see, this is one side of the thing that we have before us. We are to love all humanity because God resides in every heart.

The holy scriptures, with all the rest of the sayings about the various aspects of God, have not been able exactly to say what God is. Some phase of it, some part of it they did express, out of loving devotion. But from there we can only deduce some idea of God.

Man’s highest thought of God never has and never can measure the Eternal, but it constitutes self-revelation. Your highest thought of God is not the measure of God, but the measure of our own hitherto unknown propensities. Each Master has been saying the same thing: When I attempt to speak of the highest, I cannot. I become as one dumb. How then can we express it? Even out of the love and intoxication they have of Reality, they give out something, but it still remains as unsaid as ever.

This is what the scriptures lay down. I told you this is the outer aspect of religion – social religions. When you think that God resides in every heart, you will not kill anyone. You will respect each man, when you know for certain that God resides in every heart.

When we live up to what the scriptures say, we should all love God. Naturally, we will have respect for all others, for all living things.

The human body is a true temple of God, in which God resides. The body is the true temple of God. All Masters say so. If the body is the true temple of God, how then can we destroy or kill it?

Wrong preachings are given by ministers of the various religions instead of giving out the truths which are already in our scriptures. They have been simply proclaiming that their religion, their fold, is the highest and others are in the wrong. The result is, division between man and man and, of course, clashes between class and class. They will be ready, excuse me, just to destroy so many true temples of God – human bodies – for the outer temples which we raise with our own hands.

God resides in temples not made with hands. He resides in the true temple of the body that you are carrying. Of course, we are to maintain our outer temples (bodies) and keep them clean and chaste. These bodies are the temples of God. If the right preaching is given you will see love between man and man. Paid services, in almost all religions, I would say, have gone to make matters worse.

Now, some people think that they have special privileges. Well, God gave equal privileges to all. You see the outer form. Each has two eyes, two nostrils, two ears, a mouth, two arms, two feet and two legs. The outer construction is the same, and the inner construction is also the same. Each man has lungs, stomach, brain. God has given equal privileges to all. They are born the same way; they die the same way.

When men suffer from fever, irrespective of whether they belong to one religion or another or one country or another, they suffer the same way, and there is the same remedy to cure their fever. When you go to a doctor, an adept in medicine, and tell him that you have fever, he gives you some medicine. He will give the same treatment to anyone else for the same trouble.

I mean that the outer expression, the outer privileges, are the same for each man, as given by God. The inner privileges are also the same. We are souls. God is a limitless Ocean of All-consciousness. We are conscious entities, drops of the Ocean of Life. Of course, our conscious self is hemmed in by mind and matter. It is given over so much to the organs of sense and identified with the body that we cannot now differentiate ourselves from the body.

The inner disease is also the same. Masters are physicians of the souls which have been given over to the influences of mind and matter. They tell us how to analyze the soul from the outgoing faculties, from the organs of sense, and rise above body-consciousness to know oneself, enter into the Kingdom of God and know God. All mankind suffers from the same disease.

Well, for God there is no East or West, no North or South. All creation is one. God is One.

Where do we stand now? We are all one. All Masters, all the holy scriptures say that we are the children of God. Prophet Mohammed says that we are members of the same family of God. The Sikh Masters also say that we are all brothers and God is our Father. The Christian scriptures and all others say the same thing.

Mankind is one, and God is One. We are worshippers of the same God. When we are worshippers of the same God the archers may be many, but the target is the same then, naturally we should have love for one another. You will find that two drunkards will embrace each other irrespective of whether they are of the east or the west, or belong to one religion or the other. But do you find that among those who profess to be lovers of God – between followers of one religion and those of another? They are lovers so far as their own faith is concerned. If they are lovers of God, they all should sit together and love one another.

The heads of the various religions are supposed to have contact with God. Whether they reach Him or not, that is another question altogether. But they are supposed by their followers to have seen God and to be one with God. They also profess that they are Godmen themselves. If so, why should they not love and embrace each other? There is one God overhead. It is all one humanity. We all are the same soul – conscious entity.

Man made social religions for the uplift of man. We have to make the best use of them. The best we call have out of the social religions is to know ourselves and to know God. Of course, we have to lead an ethical life. An ethical life is a stepping-stone to spirituality. These are the teachings of all Masters who came in the past.

As lovers of God, we should love all humanity. Having been born in any religion, it is a blessing to remain in it. Nevertheless we should rise above so that we become lovers of God, and then all mankind will have one religion.

Guru Nanak was once asked: “What is the highest form of religion in your opinion?” He replied: “Well, look here. I take all humanity, all men, as reading in the same class, seeking God. We are all classmates and I consider men the world over as classmates for the same ultimate goal.” We should love one another.

The tenth Guru of the Sikhs, Guru Gobind Singh, was asked: “What do you think about man?” He replied: “All mankind is one – I tell you the whole truth – whether he is wearing a hat or a turban or is a recluse in a yellow or a black gown.” That makes no difference. These are the outer forms.

Excuse me if I ask you: What is the religion of God? He is all-consciousness. He made all men equal. Did He stamp anybody that he was such and such? No. When you know yourself, you will analyze yourself from the body and discover who you are. When you rise above body consciousness then you will find out. Religions pertain only to the outer forms of our life. We have to make the best use of them.

I have love for all social religions. That is all right. But the point is these social religions should go to help us on the way, to love God and to love all humanity. This is our ultimate goal. And further, to know ourselves and to know God, and have a first-hand experience of that Reality. Although that Reality cannot be expressed in words, still it can be experienced.

True religion is the first-hand experience of oneself, with his own Self and with God. That is the only true religion you have before you. There is the outer religion, and here is the inner religion. When you think everyone is all equal, then you will have love for all.

Our ultimate goal is to have love of God. Those persons or human beings whose souls came in contact with God, became the mouthpiece of God. They spoke as inspired by God. They are called Masters, or Godmen. We love them also for the sake of our love for God.
What did Christ say? He said:

No man knoweth the Son, but the Father;
Neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son,
And he to whomsoever the Son will reveal Him.

That is why your love goes to them especially. They have had a first-hand experience and they are competent to give us a first-hand experience of that Reality within. They tell us how to rise above body consciousness, to know ourselves and to know God.

We all sit in the same boat – solutions to our life


Dear friends, I invite you to see this really important documentary video about how we can all come together peacefully and in harmony to make our world better and to give a real sense to our life as it concerns us all. It deals with the Mission of Sant Kirpal Singh who said that we are all ONE – but we have forgotten…

So I recommend this documentary with all my heart to you, my dear blogging friends

From heart to heart
Didi

 

May God bless you all
and my warm greetings to all of you
Sincerely yours Didi

Human beings


 

We wear the dress
Of a woman or a man
Our characters may differ
The colours of our skin
The language we use
The country we live in
The label of our religions
The faith we belong to

But we all laugh and cry
Are born the same way
All have to leave this world
Have feelings and emotions
Are all directed by our mind
Have a human shape
Are all of the same kind
With life in every heart

So let’s not see
The difference that separates us
But let us see
What all unites us:
We all are Human Beings

From this common denominator
We can treat us humanely.
From man to man…

Time for the curtain to fall
Of seeing us – “differently”…

We are all ONE
Made of the same essence…
