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…

Wishes in the sand


wishes-in-the-sand2

 

Spirit dressed in matter
Dreams awake, ready  to fly
Reality to find
Freedom to search
To be alive

Marbled illusions
Take shape
In the wind of time
Unfolding dusty dreams
Perishing, renewing continously

Spirit woven in the light
Caressing the very moment
Eagle flight in timeless skies
Dissolves in the light
On wishless traces

Love beyond words


 

Loud are our words
In need of audience
Reflection to oneself
Conditioned, self pleasing

Hearts whisper
Across time and oceans
Painting love
On empty papers

Fractions are playing
Drawing symbols
In the timeless ether
Yearning to be one

Words of love
Appear in the air
Convincing, inviting
Veiling its origin

Captured in dreams
At the banks of the mind
Breathing joy and happiness
Juggling feelings

Ready for the puzzle?
Where love is is not the drop
Where love is is not the ocean
Where love is, is…

Optical illusion


 

A white vest
Does not make innocent

A suit
No gentleman

A necklace with a cross
Not yet believers

Pompous words
No practitioners

Make-up
No natural man

A beard
Not yet a philosopher

Gifts do not come
Without  intentions

Money
Not with wishes

Fire
Not with heat

Senses flowing outwardly
Not necessarily reflect reality

Often the truth can be found
– The other way round…

Power seekers


power-seekers

 

Power seekers want
To control
Dictate and rule over people,
Use all means
Without scruples
To reach their goals

May God bless them
With right understanding
Respect people
Not prison them in fear
With their intrument of power
In their hands

May they see their own mirror image
To understand what they are doing
And stop abusing power
On the shoulders
Of millions of people

Dream of a peaceful world


 

If there was trust among peoples
If there was respect among them
If there was tolerance between religions
If there was honesty in every heart
If there was compassion for those who suffer
If there was understanding among leaders
If there was fair sharing in the world
If there was no poor and rich people
If there was no violence any longer in the heads
If there was an ideal of high values within the society
If there was help and service to man
If there was spiritual development in our lives

We would not see weapons in the world
We would meet us with love and harmony
We would no longer use our earth as a trashbin
We would turn our ego into sunshine
We would understand the meaning of oneness:

We all sit in the same boat
We all are one as brothers and sisters

May each of us take this responsibility
For a better and safer world

May this dream come true…

Acceptance and respect


Planets-of-respect

 

Easy it is to critisize
But difficult it is
To think oneself into situations
Not belonging to us

We do not live
With decisions
Another person
Has to take

We do not live
The life of anyone
With his/her background
Instead ignore reasons

So no right we have
To condemn or judge
Or make us only better
With hidden motives?

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…

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

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

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

Thanks again, dear Amira! 🙂

 

My today’s two quotes, topic: Hope

1. “You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us. And the world will live as one.” – by John Lennon.

2. “Do not go to the garden of flowers!
O Friend! Go not there;
In your body is the garden of flowers.
Take your seat on the thousand petals of the lotus,
and there gaze on the Infinite Beauty.” – by Kabir (Songs of Kabir – Translated by Tagore)

 

Some words about the topic: “Hope-quotes”

John Lennon expresses in his quote his “Dream of Oneness and Unity” in our world – this is just what lies in my heart. The hope that we all understand us as One and when we all belong together – should we still fight, should we still have not enough respect and trust to each other, threaten us, separate us from Oneness? We should learn to understand that we all sit in the same boat. If each of us takes care (responsibility) that no water will come into our boat, then we surely can take our trip peacefully on the ocean of life in harmony and respect with all nations and religions, with all human beings under one roof: Humanity!

As Kabir puts it: “The Beauty lies within” – and we all try to find our happiness outside which is like: The fish is in the ocean searching for the water…

As Amira has beautifully written it: “Keep your hope flame alive and pass on the torch of HOPE to others!”- to add something to it: “With the flame of one candle thousands and thousands can be lit.”

 

My three nominees are:

1. MG Wells
2. A Tangle of Weeds
3. Akriti – doodlessworld

Wishing you all, dear bloggers, sunshine and peace in your heart
Didi
