That which we interpret as a piece of information
We often want to sell as truth…

Fragment and Oneness

Each fragment has an origin
We are fragments
Our origin is Oneness

Time that the sun rays will be united again
With their source:
Sun of life

Yearning, devotion, and love will bring us back
Each fragment reminds us where we belong to…

No embracing brotherhood

Wars waged
Do not speak of love
Not of respect
Not of unity
Not of brotherhood
They are the mouthpiece
Of hate and violence
Of lust for power
Of destruction and suffering
A sign of the Negative Power

Those who order the war
Carry hatred and violence within themselves

They are poor souls
They do not know what they do
Do even to themselves…

DidiArtist, 27.04.2022

Where is true love?

If you have hate and enmity in your heart
You are not capable to love

Since God dwells in all
And God is love
We must love all His creatures

Limited, chosen love
Is not love, is divided love

Are we ready to truly love
To love God in all?…

Time to remember

We are all members of the One
Members of Oneness
Unfortunately, we have forgotten

Isn’t it time to re-member?

Question of Being

Is consciousness to know oneself, to be
Without knowing what life, being is?

Or is it consciousness to know
To discover one’s own Self
Under the cover of knowing oneself?…

DidiArtist, 24.11.2021

Ocean and Drop at the same time

We are waves from one Source
That transcends time and space
Waves of an Ocean
Without words and intellect
Beyond death and life
An eternity of the transcending drop in the Ocean
Ocean and Drop at the same time…

The Teachings of the Masters (Man-making)

A man, according to the Science of Para-Vidya, is not entitled to be called a man in the true sense of the word, unless he has full knowledge, both theoretical and practical, of his distinguished position in Creation, his several component parts – body, mind and soul – in order of comparative importance, and of his relationship to the Unseen Power, called God, which is to be achieved while he is living on this earth. He who does not understand this much has not even been introduced to the first lesson and is yet to begin the Alphabet of Man The Saints, therefore, impress upon us the need for ‘Man-making’.

Satsang

When scientifically observed facts drawn from practice and experiment are explained verbally to a gathering by a Master Saint, it is called Satsang (external). This Satsang constitutes the theoretical side of the teachings; whereas the actual demonstration given to develop and achieve inner advancement is the practical part, called meditation or Satsang (internal). Conscientious practice brings fruit within days or weeks and it is not necessary to wait years for results, though progress also depends to some extent on one’s past background. A true Master gives a first-hand inner experience at the very first sitting. When the practical side is neglected due to lack of firmness or determination, carelessness or pressure of circumstances, scholars of many religious schools dwell more and more upon theory alone. The decline of the science then commences and man finds no solace. This is usually the case when a master leaves the body. Adequate provision however is made for the revival of this science in every age, when both the positive and negative powers commence their rounds again: the former through the agency of Master-souls, while the latter works through persons – so-called masters – who lack practical experience or are lost in theoretical disputations. Master-souls, though quite ordinary men in appearance, are a great deal more. Just as it is difficult for us to judge a scientist, a doctor or an engineer until they speak out or display their skill and knowledge, so too we cannot recognize the knowledge and authority of a Master until we have experienced the Divine Power working through Him.

In this science there is no secrecy or mystery. The objective is constructive and beneficial to all, and so the Saints have torn aside the curtain of secrecy which usually covers mystic teachings to make them available to each and every one who calls. There is an Unseen Power working through the Saints. Why this Power prefers to remain concealed from the human eye is a question to be asked directly by contacting the human pole through whom this Power is working. This is the only medium of approach to this Power. If we wish to use electric energy we must go to a switch or pole which will put us in contact with the powerhouse. The Unseen Power may be called a Sea of Love. When we wish to bathe in the sea, we go to the edge where the shallow waters begin and then say that we have bathed in the sea. Thus, to experience this Power and to derive benefit from it, we must go to the only source of contact – a Master Saint.

Present Fate of Various Beliefs and Faiths

The dictionary defines mat as wisdom; but the colloquial meaning of the term is a sect or faith, a group of people holding certain opinions or beliefs in common. Such beliefs and opinions, however, based on stray knowledge and teachings, are not sufficient without the support of personal experience; and therefore the seeker is led astray by mere empty words. Many societies, faiths, and other religious circles have only a legacy of books, beliefs and theories to offer those who thirst after spirituality. They conceal their shortcomings and deficiencies behind a screen of warm welcome, an outpouring of technique and terminology, and the liberal use of sayings and quotations from the enormous mass of literature on the market today. Propaganda and acting and posing have taken the place of practical spirituality, with the result that the deluded public is being repelled from sacred books and thoughts of God. Atheism therefore is on the increase.

To believe in a thing or fact without troubling to investigate it does not in any way do credit to an intelligent man. On the contrary, it reflects adversely on his ignorance or credulity. Any belief not based on personal experience and verification of the facts has little value. The modern man wants a well-defined, clear cut science, capable of verification by his own experience and giving concrete results. We should therefore try to see and hear with our own eyes and ears rather than with the eyes and ears of others.

Self-Analysis

Man is composed of body, mind (intellect) and soul. We are extremely careful to develop ourselves physically and mentally, but understand very little about the soul, which is the power ruling both the body and the mind. Physical joys are not lasting, and there are limitations of body and mind that we cannot ignore; so we must search for the perennial source of joy and peace within ourselves. Self-analysis is the first step in this direction. Many doubts assail our minds at this stage. There is an Omnipotent Power called God, believed in, worshiped and talked about by most people. Can we know more about Him? Can we see Him and talk to Him? There is a definite and clear reply to these questions; the Master in a few brief words explains, “Yes, we can see and speak to Him; that is, if we become as exalted as He is said to be.” Masters say “Yes,” and we do not have to wait until death comes, but we can experience it right now. This is in consonance with laws of nature of which we have as yet no knowledge worth the name. All around us we see and feel that everything from the tiny atom to the mighty universe is governed by a law of nature. So, to the profound thinker, there is nothing chaotic, haphazard or uncertain about this universe and the laws which govern it. To gain any objective, there is a law of nature, a principle and method involved for checking, testing and weighing the result of our endeavours. So it is too in this science of nature, and similar methods can be traced in all religious scriptures by any careful student, though expressed in different words and various languages. We wish to enter the Kingdom of God; “but how?” we ask ourselves. “With the help and guidance of one who has himself entered and can guide us there,” is the simple reply from the Masters. “Is it possible?” “It is a knowledge which is as exact and sure as two and two make four,” is again their reply. It is not enough to be content with Holy Books and the singing of praises and hymns. We must strive for the same degree of advancement as the authors of the talks and knowledge recorded in these books achieved. Their experience must become our experience, for “what a man has done, a man can do”; of course, with proper help and guidance. We should stop at nothing short of this.

“We have hardly a dim spark of love for Him; will it help to cherish a hope?” is another question asked, to which the Saints reply, “It is sufficient to make you eligible for the Highest science of approach to Him.” This is a pleasing ray of hope. Oh! if this small spark could be kindled into a flame! Again, we say, “Jesus and other great Masters spoke so lovingly of Him, but we are sinners and there may not be much hope for us in this age.” The Masters’ soothing reply is, “No matter if you are the worst of sinners, stop where you are. There is hope for everybody, even in this crucial age.” Ages ago, nature provided for us materially and spiritually. Today the same unchangeable law is operating and will continue to do so in the future. There is food for the hungry and water for the thirsty. Nature’s inexorable and eternal law of demand and supply always works. It is only through a living Master that we can contact the Almighty God within us. In Sant Mat, contemplation of objects or images is not advised, as this is harmful to progress. Photographs of the Masters are for remembrance and recognition only, and on no account should we become attached to such external practices.

What ist the greatest study of man? Is it theology? I would say no. Is it knowing the law of Blackstone and other great men who came in the past? Even then the answer will be no. Is it the study of works of men like Shakespeare, Miltion, Dickens, Burns? No. Is it occultism or Buddhism or Christianity or Sikhism or any other social religion that we may study? Are such works the greatest aim of man’s study? Again I would say that the answer is no. Why?

If you become conversant with all the scriptures left by the Masters, what do they speak of? “Man, know thyself.” So, knowing man, both his outer and inner aspects, is the greatest study for us. The greatest study of man is man.

Sant Kirpal Singh

Since the beginning of creation, when the first flicker of self-awakening dawned on man, his attention has been more and more concerned with the problem of his own worldly existence and the investigation into the cause and source of all creation. For ages he has probed and queried in vain; but now at last his increasing thirst for knowledge is turning him to study the results achieved by others in the field. Ancient and modern sages asked, “What is that, the knowledge of which makes everything else known?” and in the same breath replied, “Knowledge of the higher self – the true man.” So the supreme knowledge is that which deals both in theory and practice with man’s true nature and his relation to God. It is in fact a natural science without hypothesis, subject neither to change nor time.

In ancient India it was called “Para Vidya” (science of realized truth or science of the beyond), and different denominations sprang up to interpret this knowledge. The term “Apra Vidya,” standing for preparation for achieving the knowledge of Para Vidya, was then introduced. This preparation consists of following an ethical and moral life, and the practice of concentration or meditation (in so many ways), both being indispensable for spiritual development. Man is constantly changing or introducing new names and terminologies to describe this science. The Masters were called “Sant,” and the nature of knowledge “Mat,” thus giving us the term “Sant Mat,” which is at present mostly used to name the Path of the Masters. Other terms, such as Shabd Yoga, Surat Shabd Yoga, Sehaj Yoga, are also used to describe the same science. In the Sanskrit language, the word “Sant” means a Master of the Highest Order; and “Mat” is a confirmed opinion or statement made by an adept after personal experience. The foundation of this science therefore is the result of critical study, minute investigation, and the life-long personal verification of facts based on practical experience of the Self in man. This experience of the Self is something that a competent Master is prepared to give to each individual who approaches him. Sant Mat, therefore, is the teaching, system, and path of the Saints.

The Masters do not attach any importance to names, designations, or the fact that many religious sects, groups and circles have claimed this science as their own and named it after their leaders or founders. They look upon these groups as schools where man – the noblest being in creation – can study with other men as children of one and the same Almighty Father. A Master (also called Sant Satguru) has complete mastery of both theory and practice, and is competent to impart both knowledge and experience to all sincere seekers after truth, without any distinction whatever of colour, caste or creed. Any man or woman, whether rich or poor, young or old, sage or sinner, learned or unlearned, who is able to grasp the theory of the science has a right to acquire this knowledge.

In the beginning was the WORD of God…

From the WORD of GOD, His creation was born
From oneness arose multiplicity
But the multiplicity lives in the unity
Lives in ONENESS
Is ONE with HIM
As all SOULS are

Beyond all causes
As WORD, NAAM, SHABD, KALMA

Heaven of Oneness

Our perception is called duality
Our seeing is splitting

Thoughts are broken fragments
Words mere fenced limited information

Fragments open time and space
Life and death

We are and are not
Have our chair in the abyss
Of here and there
A matrix of truths and lies

Beyond all broken pieces
There is the heaven of ONENESS

Break in time and space

 

 

Seeing, living, hearing, feeling
Thought-wrapping, thought-peeling
To experience awareness of ourselves
In the middle between you and me
Division and opening
Dual, fragmented being
Consciousness, I-awareness
Cleavage of consciousness
Of time and space
Here and now
Dripping life
Wandering metamorphosis
A separate understanding
A look into the abyss of life:

Play of Illusion
In the dream of Oneness…

New world

 

 

New rays of sunlight
Hope along the horizon
The morning is spreading
A change in the heart

Calls of seagulls
Announce the new day
Colour of unity
Golden beams of love

Old animosities vanish
In smiling open hearts
Turn into understanding
Handshaking sighs

Fights of differences
Learn to unite
Overcome old wounds
Space for a new world

A world of caring and sharing
With humans living peacefully
Together hand in hand
Under one roof:

One world
One universe
One Love
One God for all

Touching thankfulness

 

 

Thankfulness in my heart
We walk together
Here and beyond
Oh, Lord in my heart

Thankfulness in every pore
Of my spirit and body
Living in the ink
Of your pen, writing my life
Oh Lord in my heart

Thankfulness in my breath
Heartbeat follows your will
Colours my thought
Along sandy streets
Oh Lord in my heart

Thankfulness in my soul
Sunshine in each step
Because you are everywhere
And I – a borrowed lifetime
Oh Lord, Life of my life

No death, no life
But eternity beyond eternity
Life beyond life
Cohesion, unity
Flourishing consciousness
Away from duality

Only Unity
Only Oneness

From soul to soul

Mind recognizes mind
So our behavior, in general, is mindlike
We mirror us from mind to mind

However, should not we recognize us
From soul to soul?
Since mind separates
Since soul unites

Then we should all see us
From the level of the soul
Not from the mind

As one in the One…

Thoughts go for a walk

Thoughts walk
High into the world
Full of happiness and rapture
Dreaming of peace
Of loving harmony
With all people
Of understanding and insight
Of mutual respect

Thoughts paint drawings
On imaginary walls
Symbols of unity
Where all people
Reach out to each other
Helping one another
Living peacefully together
Overcoming selfishness

Thoughts vibrate
In the light of pregnant beauty
Take the path of love
On a cloud of happiness
Where no one comes to harm
Where shadows, dark nights
Give way to light and day
Man recognizes himself

Thoughts flow back to the present
With the aftertaste of hope….

Oneness lies in the heart

The heart of every human being
Is not yellow, red, black or white
It transcends all the boundaries of the world
Is a religion of love
A language of understanding
That unites all hearts
Into one unity, oneness

So let our hearts speak…

Only a reflection

The outer light
Is only the shadow
Of the inner light

The outer music
Is only an imitation
Of the inner music

The whole outer world
Is only a reflection
A dead reflection

Light and sound
Is an expression of the power of God
Love, life consciousness

Dwells in every heart
Beneath the rubble
Of ego and mind

Is indivisible One
One in the One
Eternal Being, Oneness

Fight for names

We entrench ourselves behind names

In all areas
Do we not know
Truth bears all names and none?

Therein lies innocence and unity, Oneness
For names bear the quality of duality….
