Sirens of the World

We admire the real saints and sages
But are too lazy, too distracted
To follow their footsteps

Because the fair of the world enchants
Its glitter steals our attention
Makes false promises

Binding us in a thousand wishes, desires
Into a labyrinth of delusions
Captivating us like Odysseus’ sirens

We should close our ears and eyes….

Body, mind, and soul – by Sant Kirpal Singh

 
 

 
Man consists of three parts: the body, the mind, and the soul. In spirituality, mind is defined not only as emotions and feelings but also consists of intellect, the self-assertive ego, our imaginations, and wishes, as well as the stored karmic impressions of this life and all previous lives.

The whole world is in the grip and mercy of the mind. Mind is made of matter, it takes the energy from the soul and has acquired astral form in the body and works with four different phases:

It absorbs the attention (the attention is the outer expression of the soul, the soul is working outside through the attention) The result of the attention i.e. its activities. It differentiates through the intellect and affects the intellect in its own way, draws inferences out of differentiation
The mind keeps the man busy through reading, writing, feeling, emotion, drawing inferences on its own way. It also creates desires and identifies itself through the senses and sense organs. Temporarily it has made the soul blind and the soul does not discriminate since the procedure, the mind has developed, is very tedious and uneven.

Sant Kirpal Singh

 
 

Money rules the world

Is hope and destruction
Is help and exploitation
Makes greedy and envious
Proud and submissive
Is a means to an end
For dreams and wishes
Is sorrow and happiness
Is joy and pain
Is rollercoaster of emotions
Makes dependent and repressed
Violent and demanding
Makes corrupt and blind
Is human and inhuman
Is power and influence

Consciousness also means:
Being generous with money….

Plaything of the mind

As soon as one is immersed in the world
One becomes the plaything of the mind

Let us not forget:
We are only guests here

Let us be untouched
From the duality of the mind…

Hall of mirrors

We are all subject to the same behavioural pattern
Does it not then stand to reason
That we all come from the same source?

The sunbeam belongs to the sun
And the soul to God

Yet we are all prisoners
Of our own desires and needs

This world is like a hall of mirrors
It throws back everything our ego creates….

DidiArtist, 03.07.2021

Control and power

In the roots of the ego
Hides a great secret
Insatiable greed
Control over the whole world
For more and more
Over people and nations
Without a will of their own
As obedient servants, puppets
Human beings as possession
Every means is justified for it
To operate from darkness
To banish heart and light
Greed without limits
A mirror to oneself
Narcissistic love
A power play without equal
A shadow existence
Unconscionable action
Bloody wishes
Waiting to be fulfilled

Who rests in this ego? …

DidiArtist, 29.06.2021

False values

 

 

Is it a good wine?
A good meal?
A good sports game?
A handsome man?
A beautiful woman?
Is it wealth?
A house and many children?
Worldly pleasures?
Travelling around the world?
Gaining advantages?
To fulfil wishes?
Is it book knowledge?

No, all that is not the purpose
The purpose of life
Which is only passed on
To our children
Only repeated constantly

We play a game with God:
Want to have the world and God
However, to have both is not possible
The world is just a market of endless wishes

What is the purpose of life?
Re-entry into our eternal home
But with filth no one can enter
A holy house

We must learn
To live in unity
For the drop
Is not separate from the ocean

We must learn
To serve one another

We must learn
To realise
That we are all one
In the house of God

To be aware
Of our thoughts and actions
Not to hurt anyone
Living in unity

Living for others
Is living for God
So let us no longer live
For our little ego

Then every action
Becomes His action
Without pride in a good deed
Then we live in harmony

With all creation…

Killing in the name of

 

 

Man is still more animal than man
He kills in the name of God
In the name of religion,
In the name of the state,
In the name of a people
Hides his motives
Is hungry for power
Starves for more
Speaks of love
But hates in reality
Speaks of peace
But dreams of conquest, campaign
Is ego oriented through and through

When will he learn
That no one is a stranger
When will he learn
That all are one
When does he learn
That all are brothers and sisters
Children of the same God?
When?

Is he still killing then?
Will he still go to war?

Or does he then understand
What love really is?

Man is still more animal than man

Ready for eternity?

 

 

The bridge from pleasures of the world
To become a tool in the hands of God
Is a way of making decisions
To live for Him, with Him eternally

Wishes and pleasures are tempting
Draw attention in all direction
Are not focused, absorbed in Him
Prevent full concentration

With stops and go indecisions are made
Preferred to bath in pleasures
To push off the ultimate decision
To enter into Oneness

As long as mind is besmeared with dust and matter
The soul cannot be ready for her last step
To live without ego in His light
To become one with the One

This bridge, a way from ourselves to “our” Selves
From our being to His Being…

Virus: Ego and Mind

 

 

Ego and mind of a man
Is like a virus
It needs a host
To multiply his power through:

Money, selfishness, pride, greed,
Attachment – packed in wishes

Detachment is the solution

Even from oneself
To be one…Self…

This virus is spreading around the world
May we all find a serum against it

Sense of life: – A merry-go-round?

 

 

Is it the sense and purpose of life
To be after money and wealth
To fulfil “all” wishes?

Is it the sense and purpose of life
To start founding a family
Which in turn starts founding a family?

Is it the sense and purpose of life
To strive for power and prestige
As a legacy for posterity?

Or is it the sense and purpose of life
To develop as human being
To step out of this copied circle?

Is it the sense and purpose of life
To build one’s house on transient sand
To call this house home?

Or is it the sense and purpose of life
No longer to be the “Doer”
But to be a tool in God’s hands?

Our true home is timeless
It is the temple in each of us
Lets build upon it – as human being…

Everything is subject to time up to timelessness
Our real home in God…

The sun-beam coming home
To its source…

Forgotten what we are

 
 

 

Disembodied is our Home
There is some power in the body
That controls it
But we think
We are bodies
Are identified
With matter and dust
Buy dust and material
Through wishes, money
Matter to matter
Dust to dust
Purchased happiness
Accumulated power

Disembodied is our Home
As we are spirit and light
Conscious beings
Prisoners in the fog
Of mind and ego
With distracted attention
Have forgotten who we are
Lost our purpose of life
Are blind, outside and inside
Have eyes only for illusion
Are chess pieces on the battlefield
Of positive and negative forces

Are fighting against each other
And do not see the brotherhood
The light in every heart
The source of sunlight
Forgotten that we are one
Separated from light through darkness
May we become a lighthouse
For searchers of the truth
Out there on the dark sea
Showing the way to light with light

Consciousness, fire of right understanding
Torchbearers, igniting the light within the hearts…

First God or the world?

 

Embracing the whole world
Running after things and people
We call it: love and compassion
Not knowing its illusion

Worldly love
A beginning with the world
Divine love
Starting with God

Attachments to the world
Comes with death and time
Attachment to God
Comes with freedom, infinity

We can only across
This bridge
Between world and God
With love for God

DidiArtist, 18.09.2012

 

Foolish man

 

 

For short “blissful moments”
Man sacrifices his whole life

But eternal happiness
Does not lie in external things
In fulfilled wishes
Chased pleasures

It lies hidden inside in us
It is time to excavate this treasure…

Are we aware that we stand
In our own way as a hinderance…?

Sleeping desires

 

 

Our desires sleep
Like flower seeds in desert sand
As soon as the first rain comes
They awake and bloom…

Leaving the wheel of life

free-from-wishes

 

Wishes in the last breath
Come true
Bring us back
In this world

However this world is a big prison
Bindung us with
Attachments and wishes

With a pure heart
Free from attachments
Free from wishes
Embedded in God
We can leave
This wheel of coming and going
Of living and dying
Of giving and taking
of 84 millions
Different life forms

DidiArtist, 04.08.2017

Mind versus soul

 

 

Mind needs nearness and warmth
Limits love to a few
Is I-oriented, complacent
Intoxicated by l and mine

Soul is like a universe
Where everyone can take a seat
Nobody forgotten, excluded
Love that embraces the universe…

Mind watches jealously
That nothing is taken from what it “owns”
Rarely is satisfied
With what it has

Soul lives and lets live
Embodies all-encompassing love
Is sunlight and warmth
For all creatures

Mind separates, breaks in two
Words and persons
Replaces happiness with wishes
Reaps ups and downs

Soul builds up, puts together
Is one with everything
United consciousness
Breathes happiness and eternity

DidiArtist, 29.06.2019

 
 

Mind and Ego

 

 

We are storm and conflagration
War and peace
Heaven and hell
Hate and love
We are a raging ocean
An erupting super-volcano
We are smart and cunning
Always have a motive
To win, to enrich ourselves
For better or worse
We are greedy and exuberant
Striving for power and riches
For titles and acknowledgments
For possession and control
Worship the lust, which is our love
Attach ourselves firmly to the world
On things and people
Create wishes upon wishes
We are a serpent with thousands of heads
Medusa, a changing face
A spectrum of feelings, emotions
In shades and grades
We have chameleon-like thoughts
Deceive the owner
Lead her astray
Wrapping her in illusions
We, the five thieves…

The owner? – The soul…

DidiArtist, 18.07.2020

 
 

Spoilt world

 

 

Power dictates what is good
What is bad
What is in fashion
What meaning one should have

Manipulation throughout the world
With money ruling along
Tailored egos, minds
Smell of egoistic ideals

Baits attract the mind
Packed in wishes
To bind attention
Injection of deceptive dreams

Confused people – victims of the system
Walk about with greedy eyes
Coloured in blood-red
Lustfully gaze through eyes hypnotized

Pink sky filled with endless wishes
Screaming market – ecstasy
Of more and more
Better and higher

Lost ideals sink in these clouds
Swamp of decadence
Battle between winners and losers
Heads falling down like leaves

Listen searcher of the truth
Keep your ideals high
And lead a life in light
Be a beacon in the night…

Dry Within

 

 

Outside we may appear like a fertile garden
Full of fruit trees and lush vegetable beds
Which represent our fulfilled wishes
But inside we are dry, barren land

As we have not yet drunk the water of life…

Compensatory Satisfaction

 
 

 
 

There is a bridge

 
 

 

Nothing they know about each other
Life puts a fense between them

A full stomach speaks a different language
Than an empty one…

However, there is one food which does not differentiate:
Food for the soul, sunshine for everyone…

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
