Gates of Wisdom

Life contains many ways
At every moment they fork
Shower us with tests

Once passed
New gates open
Gates of wisdom

They become part of our lives
Create new challenges
Search for answers

Situations come and go
Entangle us in them
Challenge us to untie the knot

Every moment dies and lives
Demanding understanding
For practical experience

Opens invisible gates
That want to be crossed
Colour us in wisdom

He who knows himself
Knows the others

Because we all come from the same source…

What makes sense?

What is the meaning of truth
When there is no truth?

What is the meaning of wisdom
If wisdom does not exist?

What is the meaning of life
If it does not exist?

But all truth contains
Truth and untruth

But all wisdom
Rises from truth

But all sense comes about
Through sense and nonsense

So truth, wisdom, sense
Is a superior continuum

So untruth and nonsense
Is part of truth, sense of life

Thus chaos lies in order….

Searching for the sense
Cannot be counteracted with sense
Negative or positive…

Through which glasses do we see the world?

which-glasses

 

If our glasses are pink
All we see is pink

If our glasses are smoke-coloured
The whole world appears as smoke

What kind of glasses we bear
Is a reflection of our condition…

Is a facet of decption, illusion
From the well: clouded gaze

However, if we do not wear glasses
We are beyond good and evil…

Let us rise
Above these worlds…

We are in this world
But not from this world…

Separation and Oneness

 

 

Politics is separation
From party to party
From man to man
While spirituality is:
The unity of man, Oneness

It is time for wise men to govern
With respect, humility, understanding
With honesty and compassion
For all people…

Lack of Knowledge

 

 

How can a person lead people,
If he cannot lead himself
If he doesn’t know himself?
Then how can he know other people
To guide them properly?

And when this person says:
“O yes, I know myself!”
Then it is sure:
He does not know himself…

Fingerprints of words

 

Words are fingerprints
Of each indivual
With borders drawn
By the mind

Words smell
Like prison and war
Among people
Clashing ideas

With tolerance and love
Words can unite
Bring peace
Connect humans

Words seek agreements
Middle way, compromise
In colours and expressions
Under one roof

Thoughts – brain-traces
Coming into being
Translated feelings, imaginations
Into framed words.

Here and there fences
Where people fight behind
Singly, collectively
Fingerprints’ defences

Breath of Love

 

 

Beauty and wisdom are relative
Taste is both: debatable and non-debatable
Pro and contra have a wide range
Interests and experiences are different
Views and opinions vary
Understanding rests on mountains and valleys
But love is unique to everyone
Is One for All…

Two-sided love

two-sided love

 

Love in duality
Takes, demands

Love in unity, oneness
Gives, unselfishly

Love in duality
Separates, loses

Love in unity, oneness
Is universal, wins

Love in duality
Fires the mind

Love in unity, oneness
Is life, is soul

Love in duality
Is possessive, wordly

Love in unity, oneness
Is free, divine

Love in duality
Is unconsciousness

Love in unity, oneness
Is consciousness

Duality is Maya
Unity, oneness is God

Wisdom lost in knowledge

 

 
 

Body and spirit

 

 

Years go by
One after another
Body wilted
Split into
Folds and wrinkles
While beauty arises
A flower of wisdom
Inner grandeur
Garlands around your heart

Aged eyes full of love
Spreading light around
Reveal intensive life
Experienced in ups and downs
Express a winning smile
Timeless sunshine
Rays that say Yes
To the very moment

Body in the wake of time
Blossoms from outside
To inside
Gives birth
To many children:
Happiness, contentment
Embracing love, witty wisdom
Flowing in the veins of your spirit

Sharing love unconditionally
Love that has no age…

Signalling eyes

 

Eyes in Eyes
Searching
Inviting each other
What a beautiful world

Eyes questioning
Careful touching
Lovely happiness
What a hidden exchange

Eyes in eyes
Hesitating whispering
Creative music
What a bliss

Eyes in Eyes
Getting lost
Only slightly touch
What a poor world

Eyes alienating
Disengaged in the moment
Loss of happiness
What a lost opportunity

Cold as ice

cold as ice

 

Is it clever – to appear clever
And to be paid for it?

Is it clever – to speculate on people
And benefit from them?

Is it clever – to propagate truth
And to hide the lie

Is it clever – to help
And to bath in generousity?

Is it clever – to take
Instead of sharing, giving?

Cleverness that selfishly uses others
Is cold and has no heart

We are all humans

 

We are humans
Search for mutual nearness
Grab hands
Touch interests
Merge in groups

We are humans
Shelter of kindred spirits
Build a fortress
Keep together
Set contrary poles

We are humans
Create spaces
Conflicts
Draw boundaries
Form opposites

We are humans
Fear the loss
Have rubbing thoughts
Moving tectonic frames
Prepared defence

We are humans
In search of solutions
Peacefully together
Accept being different
Dismantling barriers

We are humans
Remember – humanity
Open hearts world-wide
Take us by our hands
Merge into unity…

Unity of Man

unity-of-man

 

If we humans face trouble
Merit great suffering
Our humanity awakes
Then we help each other
With open heart
Not asking from where we come
What colour, religion we have
We are then one in distress
Standing together from man to man

Back in our everyday life we fall asleep again
In anonymity, distance, old habits

Foreign people who lay in their arms
Now avoid eye contact

So let us keep this humanity alive
Not just in bad times, but also in good times

Let us be aware of this deep happiness
Of this unique unity – as we are all One
With selfless help any time…
