Lakbir Singh - The Palmist
is to watch "your" body talk and
move without a feeling of "I" doing it. Your body
might as well belong to somebody else.
This realization happens spontaneously
when your awareness is quick and clear enough to see that the feeling of "I"
doing this or that really just is a trick of the brain.
In alerted states of
awareness you will feel the total freedom and joy in the
realization that everything is just happening automatically - pretty much
the same way as you intelligently digest food: You don't need to involve the
notion "I am doing" for your intestines to work.
Similar - living in this alerted state there is nothing to understand. The
Intellectual brain is not an essential organ in this body of
truth - it is
more a byproduct - like exhaustion gas from a car.
So... just for the joy of addiction we can inhale some philosophical
thoughts: As a consequence
of the fact that everything is happening by
we could play with the thought that everything is
predestined to happen just the way it does - including "my"
efforts to make things change.
In this context it is interesting that some Sikh Gurus have developed a
remarkable ability to
read the lines of pre - destiny.
Now it is time to introduce Lakbir Singh.
In general I am not in favor of occultism
and too much
past life bla bla. But Lakbir Singhs ability as a hand & human-being
reader were absolutely extraordinary! He in fact is the first convincing palmist I have met -
way beyond the commercial tricksters you as a tourist encounter in the center
of New Delhi.
No doubt Lakbir Singh Ji was also an educated man of great intuitive
and psychological insight. But his palmist readings were
astoundingly precise - even in referring to small details and events
in the life of a person that he had met for the first time. What
Lakbir Singh could do in minutes would probably take a trained
western psychologist month. Was this really palmistry or was it a
display of almost supernatural human intuition?
I once went to Lakbir Singhs house with some friends from Germany
and Denmark .
We were sitting in a circle in his beautiful garden (photo below)
together with Lakbirs friends and devotees. A wonderful
peace would come with the fraqrant smell of the flowers. We had
offered him mangos and fruits and his devotees now served us chai.
Lakbir put his hand in my lap and said:
- Now you read my hand!
- But Sir! I don't know the art of palmistry!!
- Oh! Sure you do. I see that you you can do that. Devine intuition
is the most important.
I could not tell him anything apart from what could be said with a
little intuition, but he seemed to be satisfied. Now my friends were
lining up and one by one he sculptured precise human portraits that
left us all speechless - even chocked. It seemed like he was reading
hand lines like letters in a book. Sometimes he was also using a
- I am really not interested in reading hands - he said after
the long session.
GOD is my only true concern and several times I had visions of
Christ and the Holy Mother.
I repeat a secret mantra and the name of Jesus over and over with
great intensity in my meditation. And in blessed moments Jesus comes
to me as real as you are sitting in front of me! I hope to be fully
realized in communion with HIM before I leave this body. My time is
short but my goal is in sight. Nothing this world can offer can be
compared with the BLISS of
being together with HIM. When I have realized enlightenment I will
visit you in Denmark.
