Walls around words


walls-around1

Part never expresses the whole
Thoughts are build in words
Draw borders around
Become issues
Get lost in self-opinionatedness

Bricks of words and names
Build houses
Air-castles, fortresses
Fenced in point of views
Collided knowledge

Fragments torn from the whole
With names
Of smoke and mirrors
Connect with bridges
Devided understanding

Silence gives birth
To nameless consciousness
Silent voices
Arising from the heart
Language of the soul

Where nothing is separated
No borders in words and thoughts
There is life in pureness
Communication
All in all

In this silence
Connected we are
Away from the market
Hue and cry of the mind
In one voice: Love and light

Counteract Craziness


 

 

Allowing craziness in our national worlds
Is a lack of deeds and words…

If a crazy man leads
It requires actions and deeds…

Fear, ignorance, and laziness
Will lead to craziness

Do and live wisely for others and yourself…

Fruits of Life


 

 

All our thoughts, words and deeds
Are mirrored fruits on the field of life…

Walls in the mind


 

 

Words are separating fences
Drawing lines in the mind
Visable islands
Within the endless emptiness
Light and Sound
Of a timeless Ocean
That has no words…

Courage to admit own mistakes


 

 

Sometimes we are not aware
Of the consequences of our words and deeds
When we notice them,
Often it is already too late…
Then we get stuck in our own pride

With courage and confession
To be responsible for own mistakes
The rudder can still be pulled around

So we have to make peace with ourselves
To be in peace with others…

It is never too late for that…

Voiceless meeting


 

 

Eyes whisper the language
Of feelings, temperature
Exchange wordlessly
Vibrate and sing

Meeting within the gaze
Approach and leave
Attract, repel each other
Send and receive

Throw light and shadow at each other
Search themselves in contact
To find: cordiality, friendliness
Between action and reaction

Dance in invisible words
In the rhythm of the eyesight
Give themselves away, reflect
Love each other in happiness

Do not think evil of others – by Sant Kirpal Singh


 

An excerpt from the book: “Morning Talks” – by Sant Kirpal Singh

 

 

Once Akbar, who was a great Emperor of India, was told by his minister that thoughts were very potent and that great care should be taken in what we think of others. Akbar asked his minister how he knew this. The minister said, “All right, I will give you a concrete example. Let us go outside.” So both of them went outside and they saw one man coming towards them at a distance of a few furlongs. The minister said to the king, “Look here, just think something about this man in your mind and when he comes near, you might ask him what crossed his mind at that time. You are only to look and think.” The king thought in his mind that this man should be shot. The man approached the king and the king asked him, “When you saw my face, what thoughts crossed your mind?” The man said, “Emperor, excuse me, but I thought that I should beat you with my fists and break your head.” So thoughts are very potent. If you think evil of others, the other man will react. You should be careful how you speak to people. If you speak ill to another and say “You are a fool” and things like that, or if somebody calls you a name and you react in the same way, what is the result? There will be a flare-up. A man calls you once, twice and that results in a fight. This is by words, their very root is the thought. A man speaks out of the abundance of his heart. Whatever is lying there, those things take the form of words, then words lead to fighting. So don’t hurt the feelings of others, in thought, word or deed.

 

 

Message of goodwill


 

 

Usually we have good thoughts for our dear ones
Let us widen our horzont
To give room for the whole world
For good thoughts, words and deeds to everyone

A message that should go
From heart to heart
Torchbearer of light
To bring love in every house

No more violent thoughts
No more harsh words
But kindness and love
Respect and goodwill

Or do we want to be a mirror
Of our bad thoughts?…

Lashed freedom


 
 


 

Strandet at self-created limitations
Horizons fenced with words
Thoughts of right and wrong
Shaking, breaking

Waves of fixed measurements
Strike against the bank of tolerance
On a rigid sea called non-acceptance
Water of no space

Accompanied by fear and pride
Defended knowledge of scarred injuries
Fortress against hostile attackings
House of a snail

Ship of prison in the mind
Should weigh its anchor
To be free from thoughts and words
From luring wishes of these worlds

Like an eagle fly above all clouds…

Be aware before, not after…


 

 

Could we see in advance
All the bad things we do
The ripples of our actions
We would change immediately
Not to eat the inedible fruits
To have to harvest and eat them…

So let us think twice
Before we release a word or an action…

Reaching hearts


 

 

Not necessary to twist words
To hold whole lectures
Bend lips and tongues
When reaching a heart

Heart speaks with simple words
Touches you with light
A hug of love
Symphonie between hearts

Beams of light touch each other
Cosmic melody
A dance in Oneness
Vibrating happiness

Poem that find its way
Directly into the heart
Changing the beat
Song of two hearts

Happiness for you and me…

Time for Self-Introspection


 

 

Many questions come
Addressed to ourselves:
How has my life been so far?
What have I done wrong?
What can I improve in the future?

So much dirt in my thoughts
Garbage in words and deeds
Pyramid top of a now and here
Time to take stock
Who I was, who I am

How many people have I hurt
Including myself?
In the hamster wheel of equal deeds
Bad habits?
Shame on myself

Every thought, every word, every action
Has a heavyweight
When they hurt
It’s banging against the walls
Of one’s own heart

The scale shows
Where we stand
Honesty and confession may help
To cleanse us from dirt
To become a better person…

Time to bring about the change in us…

The five cardinal virtues of spirituality – by Sant Kirpal Singh


 

An excerpt from the book: “Crown of life” – written by Sant Kirpal Singh

 

To cultivate and develop the five cardinal virtues which constitute the bedrock of spirituality.

These are:
1. Ahimsa or Non-injury to all living creatures, and more so to fellow beings, by thoughts, words and deeds the injunction in this behalf being: Injure not a human heart for it is the seat of God. We must have respect for others feelings and tolerance for others opinions.

2. Satayam or Truthfulness: As God is Truth, we must practice Truth in all our dealings. If Truth resides in every heart, it must manifest itself in life and action. Be true to thyself and it must follow as night the day, thou canst not be false to any man. We must therefore avoid falsehood at all costs. It includes, besides downright lies, hypocrisy and dishonesty, suppresso veri [suppression of truth], and suggestio falsi [suggestions of false ideas].

3. Brahmcharya or life of Chastity: It includes continence in thoughts, words and deed-houghts within, for Chastity is life and sexuality is death. If we want to tread the Path of Life Eternal, we must be chaste and clean both within and without.

4. Prem or love for all living creatures and more so for all human beings. Let there be hatred for none. The entire manifestation is the handiwork of God and must therefore be loved and respected. He who does not know love, cannot know God.

5. Nishkam Seva or Selfless Service to all living creatures in sorrow and distress. If one limb of the body is in torture, the other limbs can have no rest. Service before self should therefore be our motto in life.

 

 

 

 

Spreading violence


 

 

The more we deal with violence,
Through movies, games, media
The more it influences us…
Is passed on:
In thoughts, words, and deeds

A virus of our mind…

Stale words


 

How many times it happens
That we deceive ourselves
We identify us with mere words
Without really knowing,
Practically living them

To make us better
Compared with other?
To demonstrate knowledge?
Or to make a show
In front of us?
Or do we just run after
What is in fashion?…

We try to justify it
With some book-reading
And are even proud of it…

However, when reading
A book about water
We cannot squeeze the water
Out of it – not even one drop…
