    Afraid of predestination 

    When I was a BK teacher, once I gave the class of the “Eternally repeating cycle” to a student.

    Once I broke the news that “everything will repeat identically for we live in a cycle,” she broke down crying. She told me that she has been molested and just the thought of that happening to her again, was very traumatic.

    Most individuals are afraid of “repeating” something traumatic in their lives. That is “normal.”

    Although we could say that “it will repeat” at the same time, we can say that “it will be new.” In fact, every experience that we have in this Life time is “new” although theoretically we know it is “repetition.” Do we see that paradox? That understanding requires a bit of emotional maturity.

    Let me call the person of my example “Mary.”

    “Mary” will have that unsavory experience. It is fixed in the Drama. Mary should know as well that such an experience came as a consequence of other things she had done in her life or previous lives, for everything is “cause and effect.” Thus, can we say that she DESERVED the experience? NO! Let us not talk with the duality of “good or bad” terms. That terminology creates immense misunderstanding. It is too childish (although easy to understand in a world conditioned through the “reward system.”)

    Why? Here is the programming:

    “Mary” DESERVED the (BAD) experience. She did something WRONG before. She feels GUILTY. That SHAMEFUL incident was PUNISHMENT for her. That will REPEAT ETERNALLY. It is PREDESTINED.

    Those words in capital letters only create “sinners.” It is the conditioning that society and religions have exploited through the “reward system.”

    If we understand the paradoxical play of Life, we could appreciate that “Mary” will have the tools to overcome that experience. No one has a “flavor-less” experience without being capable to overcome it. That is another paradox which is not typically taught at the BK center. In fact, that experience will help her to change and eventually open up to Life again in her journey. It is guaranteed, for no one leaves the “play” without settling everything. Correct? That is “zero” balance.

    Therefore, in the “UNLIMITED” where was the WRONG action? Why feel GUILTY? Emotionally we have been conditioned to act that way, but feeling remorse will not “fix” anything. Thus, we should learn to be mature enough to take the consequences and learn from them, so we can grow even out of “unfortunate” experiences. That is to be conscious.

    In Life, experiences just ARE necessary as they ARE. For conditioned humans, there is “good and bad” according to their own morality and conditioning. Religions will remind us to “think twice” before DOING an action. That is fine if we have the chance to meditate before our next activity of the day. However, many times ACTIONS happen right there, instantly. No time to think. Have you notice? Those may have a lasting consequence in our lives.

    Just OBSERVE in the moment that that happens. Observe how perhaps a repressed “I” takes over. Let us be conscious of that as it happens. To emotionally beat ourselves up will not DO a thing but to preserve the programming of feeling a victim and a failure. We may need to get out of that.

    Actions are predestined in the Drama; but how we feel about them may not.

      Om shanti. Thanks brother for throwing some light on ‘punishment’. Yes, we do fall in the trap of being punished for our ‘wrongdoings’ and regret as to why we had performed such actions which have created a painful situation. The unlimited and repetitive drama is benevolent.

    The lie of mental understanding 

    While in society we value mental understanding as a tool to make decisions within social circumstances and even Life itself; in “spirituality” the mind is truly a hindrance when we do not recognize its proper place.

    Caught up in concepts, interpretations and language itself (all mind) we miss the point of change of consciousness. BEING needs to change, that is the gist of spirituality. Our mental understanding does not bring any change whatsoever in BEING. It is only second hand theoretical information.

    When a BK follower is caught up in “knowledge,” he merely is exercising his ability to understand concepts. That knowing is false.

    The value of “churning knowledge”as BapDada has said, is to only entertain the mind.

    The mind needs to be entertained as otherwise, it will present itself as an obstacle to remain in the BK path. Most BK followers’ doubts and “test papers” are in the category of the mind. Do I eat out in a restaurant today? Do I pursue that woman or man? Do I wake up for amrit vela today or miss it?

    Observe that the mind will complain as if we are missing out something in Life. We will compare with others who are seemingly enjoying a “normal” Life, etc.

    The mind demands that entertainment. In society we have TV, movies and Youtube; but in the BK “pukka” world, is nothing else but to “churn knowledge.”

    Nevertheless, a sharp observation will elucidate our path: There is no change in consciousness when we apply knowledge to ourselves, only change of behavior which many times we take as “having changed our sanskaras.” However, the tendency will be to go back to “normal” after awhile.

    The mind changes as the heart takes over as our main tool to rely in Life, and that “change of command” has a process in itself. It is not made through will power, or through mental understanding of some philosophy.

      Om shanti dear Avyakt bhai ji.

      Yes, I understand, when we do not ‘go into silence’ of the mind, we can never really bring about changes in the soul. If the mind keeps on chatting, be it a worldly matter or spiritual knowledge, there will be no spiritual evolution.

      Only in the silence of the mind can we ‘hear’ and visualise what we have to become. Only when the soul experiences that peace and silence, the real transformation starts happening.

    Honesty is the key 

    After all, philosophies describing the “truth” are mere past time. We could spend our time fitting our behavior to follow a philosophy but there will not be honest change within.

    There could be a beautiful behavior from someone, something impresses us and we want to act in the same way. That action came from a saint, an angel, etc. That same action if it is done by us just to copy the behavior, becomes false; the work of a con artist.

    Actions by themselves, do not make a great man. But a great man makes great actions automatically. Until we do not realize that, honesty will not be known by us.

    Of what good is to know that we are souls, who God is, and what will be the future, if we keep on using others for our own interest? Peddling in ideas to fill our empty egos with some certainty.

    That is the predestined Drama.

    Inner Honesty is the way out from that closed door.

    Question on sexuality, infatuation, jealousy and attachment in the BK experience 

    Thank you for your question. Although, Avyakt7-NG does not wish to answer personal questions, I felt my answer could be for the “common good,” as you are struggling with something which many BKs may also experience. That is infatuation. This answer will have a personal note to you based on what you have shared.

    Observe that your case has become more difficult as time went by. Observe that my first answer to you back in 2016, had 2 sides: 1) Do not repress sexuality which you interpreted as a license to go on with your sexual fantasies. The word “repression” means to keep something in the unconscious by force. Many people practicing celibacy keep that vow using force, violence within. There is no repression when that inner struggle is not there. 2) The second and perhaps most important part of my answer was to be HONEST with yourself. You know that you are a sexual person, but you may not be aware that violence is impulsing the expression of your sexuality. A BK follower does not “practice” any form of sexuality. Honesty will guide you to see that “reality.” From your previous posts you explained that you practice BK ism as you see fit you at a particular time. Although you have been associated with Brahma Kumaris for 7 years, you haven’t been fully practicing the BK path. Do you realize that?

    Now, you are infatuated with one of the BK female teachers. Do you see the escalation?

    If you value peace and tranquility above any other things in your Life, you may clearly and honestly see that you need to leave the BK religion. This is my straight advise to you: Leave. Completely and quickly. “Cold turkey.” Cut all relationships with the BK center that you attend and all the people in it, and the BK religion at once. At this time, Brahma Kumaris is not for you. Hope I did not give any space for misunderstanding in my reply.

    What do you do now? You need emotional help. You must look for that help. You need to observe the habit of masturbation and how that is being used to deal with depression and inner violence. That is the main point to find. In your current condition, your mind will not allow you to have a loving relationship with a woman. It will be only sexual to try to satisfy the mind and its repression and then you will look for another one, for the mind cannot be satisfied and you will be empty handed but depleted of vitality. Jealousy and attachment go together. With those vibes inside you now, you may need to be honest and protect the personal integrity of the object of your infatuation/sexual attraction. You haven’t written about loving her, but only being strongly attracted to her. That is a very honest note from you. But even if you might think that you love her, leaving her completely will be a kind act from you, given yours and her circumstances.

    In the last couple of articles I have explained extensively the issue with habits and sexuality and how other”lower” beings may be involved as well, depending on the INTENTION behind our actions. A strong habit may become difficult to dissolve due to that symbiosis.

    What do you take as a teaching from the current situation? This is what matters in your spiritual development. Perhaps you learned about your insecurity, your jealousy. Perhaps you observed your own inner violence in action and the trigger for that. Perhaps you realized that the ideal to be without sex, is not workable at this time for you. You observed the consequences on following the ideal of celibacy with repression. I am not saying that celibacy is “bad” or that it doesn’t work. Celibacy naturally works for some people, without repression. Perhaps you see clearly our tendency to blame others if things do not go the way we wish. Brahma Kumaris was the institution that made you see “your weaknesses” as all the “normal” supports were cut off from your life. You paid the price, the “tuition” through your own experience. That is invaluable.

    On Emotional help: At this point, I’d suggest for you to try a psychologist first. Once that person counsels you to make you aware of your hidden emotions and mental habits (fantasies) with your inner violence continuously looking to express; then seek help of alternative healing to dissolve those energies within you. Google for “emotional healing and alternative medicine.” This will be a new journey for you. It requires your complete focus to observe your inner changes. If you need a religion or spiritual system for support, look for something else available resonating with you. To learn from your own emotional and mental state, should be your top priority. That is part of any serious seeker’s journey. Also consider giving part of your time to help others. That is a wonderful “cure” for self-absorption, which is one of the causes for many emotional/mental issues.

    If you are honest in your willingness to heal your emotions and mind, Life will bring the right settings and people for you. It all depends on your true intention. What seems hard to do now, will help you later on when you look back at that experience and you will be able to share with others going through the same. Inner honesty will help you to be conscious, aware of this experience as it unfolds.

    Remember: To experience pain in Life is unavoidable, but to experience suffering is a mental disease.

    All the best to you.

      Thank you for your advice. As you have given straight advice I want to make every thing clear to you.
      I am thankful and grateful to her because her loveful sharing helped me a lot in my difficult times. She started giving special attention to me and called me mostly for service, I also enjoyed her presence, confusion started when I asked questions regarding knowledge and told her about my research She told me not to research and started doubting me, from here she started making distances I felt bad and my fantasy increased. I told her about my problem she said do not bother about it and follow knowledge properly. She shared her loveful feelings from behind, I fall in love with her and shared loveful feelings from heart. She continued calling me mostly in service but I felt bad and decided to leave because i thought my fantasy is distributing her but she always called me to attend class whenever I was absent for more than one week. I decided to visit class weekly but was called for service mostly and could not make excuses. My fantasy increased, I tried many things to transform this habit but failed till here every thing was ok. The problem started when I saw her last year enjoying the company of a new brother and she noticed my insecurity and jealousy and thought that I am doubting her character. she didn’t say anything but stopped calling me for service and gave my part of service to this new brother when I saw this I became more anxious and jealous and my thought became voilent and reactive towards her. My fantasy also increased. She misunderstood all this as doubting her character. I wanted to make every thing clear but couldn’t get the chance. I felt very bad and decided to leave but she calls me to attend the class and share her loveful feelings from behind. I feel love for her and share my feelings from heart I am in between love and sex. Love entered my life because of her my experience regarding sex has also changed greatly now I also share my loveful feelings from heart but now she is doubting me and not comfortable in my presence but shares her loveful feelings from behind, I am confused whether she loves me or not
      Thank you for your suggestion. But feeling hard to take decision.

    From BK Gyan to Vigyan: Churning by BK Javier 

    The following article was written by Javier Gomez and submitted to my blog “Exploring the Depth of Living.” Although it is addressed to me, I find that it would be unfair to give my opinion, as I am no longer a BK. However, I believe this “churning” may be of benefit to intellectual BKs, and I responded to him that I will publish it in this blog, as this site is meant for BKs, ex-BKs or anyone who is interested in the Brahma Kumaris. Javier’s contact e-mail is in the link with his name (mouse over it.)

    I will respond to this question, on Monday November 2nd and then take a break and resume writing on November 11. Enjoy Life!

    Dear brother
    Om Shanti
    I want to share with you a churning that I’ve had lately. I would like you to consider it carefully, with open mind and share your opinion with me; especially the “why would you not agree” with the issues that you consider so. Thank you in advance for your kind consideration.
    FROM GYAN TO VIGYAN

    Challenging the stone intellect
    INTRODUCTION
    Baba tells us that only 8 souls understand Him correctly, the rest being numerical; and a few, who will be the rulers of the world, manage to understand the Drama. Is it because knowledge is not churned enough, with an open mind, devoid of prejudice and conditioning, many associated with bhakti or is it individual fortune to understand up to a certain level?
    Reaching vigyan, the experience of silence full of meaning, is a very difficult transit, perhaps impossible for someone who is too conditioned by bhaktigyan (gyan mixed with bhakti) or who is content to just listen and not go deep.
    As teachers, I feel that we should no longer be afraid that the term will be misinterpreted: “If it’s in the Drama (or in my role) I will make efforts”, because ‘would stop making efforts ´. This idea may be true, but it should not be used as an excuse for not doing what needs to be done, follow shrimat. Although remembering Baba may be the most difficult (or the easiest?), It is also true that the more we understand the Gyan, the easier the memory is.
    This essay is just an attempt to explain, in a nutshell, issues as complex as:
    * “Drama is Predestined”
    * “I (God) am also tied to Drama”
    * The “Philosophy of Karma” (lawless).
    * “Existence in Parandham”, beyond time and space.
    * “Drama inspires your efforts”
    * Freedom of choice and Predestination
    * “Eternally fixed roles” and “Karmic accounts”
    * In cyclical time “the past is the same future”; its implications.
    * “Cycle after cycle” implies a linear sequence in time
    By churning them, you can access a new level of understanding.
    It is a fearless adventure. For some it will be like trying to decipher a coan (a riddle in zen), something that cannot be named, because it automatically loses its essence and can only be experienced in silence. It is necessary to get out of the limiting scheme of words and look from another perspective, unlimited consciousness.
    For 36 years I have been fascinated by the possibility of “Staying stable in the meaning of Drama” (Mama’s favorite slogan). I’m not bragging about fully understanding Drama and I don’t have any writing talent either. I love going deep into the Gyan and this document is a humble attempt to explain personal accomplishments that seem very logical to me but are generally not discussed among the Brahma Kumaris.
    Sometimes I have to repeat some concepts, because they are lost from view very easily and are crucial for understanding other topics, which requires associating several key ideas. It could also happen that in some cases apparently it contradicts some points, that happens because of the attempt to put into words something that is unmentionable, such as really understanding eternity.
    Baba has said that in the end science will help corroborate the Gyan. To reach these conclusions, I have considered some points of modern scientific currents such as quantum physics, anthropocentrism and epigenetics, among others.
    I suggest that you answer the questions in part two before reading your answers. I think it would make this adventure more interesting! I would greatly appreciate your feedback, it would be very helpful to me.
    School Gyan and Bhaktigyan
    Baba teaches us very deep matters in a masterful way by adapting His explanation to all levels of consciousness and age. He insists on the basics to undermine the “stone intellect” with which we arrived at the Gyan. That basic gyan is what I call “Gyan schoolboy”. Between the lines he gives us points from the upper Gyan (we will analyze some of those points later) in such a way that we will be interested in ruminating and drawing new conclusions. I think that many BKs do not consider the deep implications of these points and in the best case they will repeat them as it is, which is why my interest in discussing them here.
    In the gyan school Baba has to use images, metaphors, similes, stories and more pedagogical strategies, even until he has to “lie”, as when he said that the soul is like a thumb, so that the soul releases the “rust” that It prevents you from seeing wider and freeing you from the devotional burden of 63 births. Many times, although Baba insists that we go to the limitless, the Gyan is approached from the relative, it is interpreted in different ways focusing almost everything from the Dharna. My intention is to delve into pure Gyan, or let’s call it, absolute Gyan.
    In basic gyan a devotional love relationship with Baba is practiced and promoted more than “yoga of the intellect” as ShivBaba suggests. Sometimes it happens that the gyan is interpreted in a very elementary way, as when children teach us that 2 + 2 = 4 and it is counted on the fingers of the hands. That is fine, however, I consider that continuing to think that 4 are fingers and nothing else, is a very limiting conclusion.
    Loving (God) without understanding is devotion. Believe that God helps me, protects me, etc. it is bhakti. Bhakti is based on belief. Gyan is based on understanding. God gives Gyan (the truth that saves, liberates) and all our achievements depend on the use that we give it, according to the plan of the drama. Baba does not give blessings; we bless ourselves by obeying shrimat, if it is in our fortune
    The first phase of the Gyan is to call the attention of the Soul to God as that mirror that reminds me of what I am originally and essential. It is the state of manmanabhav. Then, I must go further and realize that what I see in the mirror is not God itself but my own reflection. And finally, to assume or experience the absolute self in all its greatness. That is the state of soul consciousness, where I feel that I am that almighty authority, totally virtuous and wise. It could be considered the state of madhiajeebhav, the god that I originally am.
    Gyan is the foundation that will allow us yoga, Dharna and service accordingly. When the deep Gyan is not clear, the memory or yoga becomes more of the heart (mental, devotional) and not of the intellect as Baba suggests. With superior Gyan (overcoming the barriers of devotion), the precise Dharna is automatic, natural. However, even if we reach an understanding of the absolute or higher Gyan, we have to continue speaking from the school gyan to the new ones, who come with “stone intellects” (citing the term Baba uses to refer to souls who have not yet developed the divine intellect).
    The map is not the territory
    Map: The interaction between God, souls and matter in a 5,000-year-old drama (cycle?) With 5 ages that is repeated indefinitely and where the rule is that if the soul chooses to do something it will have to bear the consequences – its prize or their punishment. Baba constantly exhorts us to make use of our freedom to choose the right, the good, and to avoid the bad, the wrong. However, looking from the limitless, we really do not have freedom of choice, our decisions are automatic expressions of a previously recorded role, eternally predestined. There really isn’t anything that is wrong or bad. Baba is also tied or conditioned to say that to motivate our efforts that are also inspired according to the role that is fixed in the soul.
    Drama is a predestined play, where the future is the past itself, therefore there is no such thing as past or future. The only real thing is the present moment, in which the soul expresses its recorded script, but it is not the result or consequence of a past, nor is the present determining the quality of the future, nor is every moment being overwritten at an equal moment in the past. cycle because, logically, there can be no such thing as past cycles or future cycles, since we would fall into the same contradiction of giving existence to temporality, which is not possible, there is only an eternal now. Life is not a school, we do not learn anything. Everything is indelibly engraved in the soul. There is an illusory feeling that we learn, that we improve, that we decide, but no, that feeling that we learn is simply emerging from the soul, the recorded role is being expressed.
    However, according to the logic of the Drama, everything goes through sequential processes or steps. And that is what Baba does by giving us knowledge. We change from a stone intellect to a divine intellect (equally predestined). For which he has to speak to us at that level, like school children. Each soul has to take these teachings, work them and apply them in ourselfs, churn them deeply until the divine intellect develops. Also, if you are in your fortune, according to Drama!
    God enters into an equally predestined role, embedded in the everlasting game called Drama. For example, it is not His motivation to make efforts that determines that we do what we call efforts, but rather, God is programmed, without choice, to tell us that and we are equally programmed or forced to do what we do; Call it correct efforts (being obedient) or not making efforts (disobedience). There is no such thing as that if I do this I achieve this other, because there is no causality, there is no freedom of choice, decisions such as results and consequences are already programmed in advance in the Drama machinery. Therefore, in reality, nobody makes efforts, only automatically expresses what is eternally engraved in the soul. The same thing happens to God. In this predestined logical process, praise for God becomes very intense, as in bhakti, and it is because loving God is basic in the application of the magical mantra of manmanabhav. However, as will be explained later, it is necessary to understand the intention and deep meaning of remembrance, so it does not become another form of devotion.
    To understand and apply what has been previously analyzed is to enter the territory. The map is not the territory, the truth is the the territory and its absolute. The “map” is the subject of various descriptions, some BKs adorn it, entertain and delight and impress those who listen to it. That’s part of the show in Drama, but it’s not the last truth, it may be the way, in the best case.
    Reason & Pure Intuition
    When the map is abandoned to enter the territory, reasoning and therefore concepts lose meaning, become limiting, blur reality. Being very rational becomes an obstacle. In the same way, you can fall into the trap of imagination and convince yourself that it is the truth. By tuning consciousness with the unlimited, there is then room for intuitive wisdom, pure experience, comprehensiveness, meaningful silence. It is then when Baba’s statement is fulfilled: Gyan is silence. A state like the one Baba predicted in 1969: “In the end, this daughter (Dadi Gulzar) will be in complete silence and stillness, experiencing soul consciousness.” I think that is the incorporeal state, the seed state. So, I don’t need to remember ShivBaba anymore. I am Bapsaman, I am a god!
    As the deity state, I enjoy the safety and comfort of my original state. I live my eternal qualities of peace, love, power, etc. I am aware of the self, the seed and not the body, the trunk … (murli state of the seed 07-05-2017). The memory of the Supreme Soul is only a strategy (or tool) to become conscious of the soul, not the opposite. I do not have to be soul conscious to remember God, I have to be God conscious (remember or imagine him?) to become soul conscious.
    Initially, what we call soul consciousness, is only in theory or imagination and it is necessary to connect multiple points to get to realize deeper and more subtle aspects.
    The route from the map to the territory would be as follows:
    “Know” the fundamental aspects of the Gyan or the “map”.
    “Churning” the details of that map is the next step.
    “Understanding” is the consequence of a systematic churning.
    Proper “practicing” occurs as a result of understanding.
    “Experimenting” happens when practiced repeatedly.
    “Being” is the result of continuous deep experiences. It is to settle in the territory. It is enlightenment.
    “Bapsaman” means to remain in the experience of the Self, including the understanding of God and Drama.
    Life is a Pre-Fated Drama
    Existence is the manifestation or expression (existere, being) of everything in space-time. Drama is the interaction of everything that exists. Predestined means that what exists does not have a cause, nor does it have a purpose. It is, eternally. There is no choice, therefore, there is no option to change. If we consider Drama as a cycle, there would be no Pre-destined future because the future would be the same past, so there is neither past nor future. There is an eternal present.
    Our decisions depend on our predestined role, not on inspiration from God or maya. Our present situation is not a consequence of our past decisions and the future does not depend on what we do in the present, because the future is the same past. Therefore, the present or future position of someone is not particular merit, it is according to his fortune, which is nothing other than his predestined role.
    Repeating the same thing is meaningless within eternity. Repetition of time (cycle) is an attempt to put the concept of eternity into words. Time is relative, eternity is absolute. Eternity is confused as endless time. Parandham would be the absolute or eternal state of everything.
    5,000 years of Brahma’s soul is his eternity. God doesn’t have to show up every 5,000 years to teach. The time he spends teaching is his eternity. Any other direct function attributed to Baba is the result of devotional love.
    In India there is the term Videhi, which means the soul conscious of its eternity, outside the body (8 inches above the head), as a detached observer. In quantum physics they call it the “supreme observer state.” It is like being in parandham. That state is only possible while we are with our own body. I think that God cannot be said to exist in parandham, because there is only existence within space-time.
    Like a hologram, which is a simulation of events in which the actors seem to decide, but it is not, there is no freedom of choice. Decisions are conditioned by a pre-established plan. It is like a robot game. It could also be compared to the instinct of animals: it seems that they decide what suits them or not. However, it is eternal information that moves them. The same happens with plants. Even the information is not in the genes. According to Epigenetics, the information comes from outside…
    When we understand this, the fact that we have no choice, the subject of the ego and all forms of attachment disappear, we accept and accept everything and everyone more easily. We enjoy life, like the game that it is.
    God is tied to Drama
    Drama is the highest authority. It implies that God also has no freedom of choice. Baba has the only role of giving Gyan. Applying that Gyan the soul is purified, or we would say that the corresponding role emerges according to its fortune. Any other praise or function that is given to it is bhaktigyan, such as: That it gives power, it purifies, it guides, it gives inheritance, it gives visions, it gives love, peace, etc. Baba says: “Krishna is praised as the one who is full of all virtues. You would not praise Shiv Baba in the same way. Someone who has virtues would also have flaws. For this, the praise of the Father is different from the praise of any other (Murli 06-23-2020) and in the Murli of 05-14-2020, Baba affirmed: “You are establishing your kingdom with your power.”
    Would God then be one more spiritual piece in the gear of the enormous machinery called Drama? If Brahma Baba sometimes claims that God has other functions, it is to emphasize the importance of remembering Him, as essential Gyan. In addition to giving us Gyan, God is the “mirror” from which we change perspective by remembering Him and we can see the material and spiritual dimension of reality (the two sides of the coin). I dare to say that when we have yoga with God, we are doing it with our own elevated original self since God only exists in the age of confluence when He speaks through Brahma. Let us remember that in Parandham there is neither time nor space! This does not mean that the soul is God!
    In the murli sakar on January 3, 2020, the Father says: “This drama is predestined. I am also bound by the bondage of this drama. Not even I can free myself from this drama ”. So God is the main actor. He cannot be the creator or director, because he is also tied, forced to play a role. Would he be another robot ?! Drama is the highest authority. That is why Baba himself bows to his children and says that we do not need to bow to Him, nor thank Him.
    Relatively, every situation in Drama (like remembering God) seems to have a purpose, but on an unlimited, absolute level, there is no goal. Everything is already given. It’s just a game for no reason other than to be there. God says, the essential is manmanabhav (connect with the truth), but he explains many details to make this game entertaining. Often motivated to have that memory, he exaggerates himself in Baba’s praise, again being caught up in a devotional relationship.
    In a murli on the “incorporeal state,” it was generally about remembering Baba. In another murli (S.M. 27-06-2020) Baba said that being incorporeal is: being aware of the Soul. As we said, when we remember Him, Baba acts as a “mirror” so that we assume our original state. Sure, really like a mirror. It is not that Baba is there, in parandham. It is my own reflection that I remember. Keep in mind that nothing exists beyond time and space. Time is the only unit of measurement. It has been said, “A thousand years on earth are like the twinkling of an eye in the heavenly abode.”
    So, the memory of God happens as when you remember your mother, for example. If you remember her when she was very nice to you, you feel good. If you remember her when she did something that bothered you, you surely won’t feel so good. And it’s not that she’s in that place you remember her now! Since our idea of God is that he is good and powerful etc, we feel good remembering Him with love. And since he is a soul, we take that form.
    It is true that devotional love seems to work. For example, there are Hare Krishnas students so fervent that they intend to go to India and they find the passage out of nowhere. They generally say that Krishna helped them! Really? ShivBaba says: “Everything happens according to the predestined Drama” It is not the merit of anyone in particular. God has the only role to teach. Baba does nothing, he only inspires (SM 07-23-2020). This understanding can free us from all traces of bhakti!
    Since this is difficult to understand, someone asked me saying: “Why those doubts in Baba? You can see that everything he has said since 36 has been fulfilled!” And I say, precisely that that point confirms what I assert, that the future is immutable, even in the slightest feeling. What a teacher said 2,000 years ago is also being fulfilled: “… there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth … there will be no stone on stone … and then, the meek will inherit the earth …” What is written at the beginning of Ecclesiastes it is also very significant: “There is nothing new under the sun. What was will be.” It seems that we are all programmed, like robots!
    Record or replay the drama
    The drama is neither being recorded nor repeated. It is not recorded because it “always” is. If it were possible to record it, as Baba sometimes mentions, it would be determined by the decisions of all souls. That is a form of motivation that Baba uses, it is a necessity for the soul to believe that it is so.
    And it is not repeated because then the question arises: since when and why did it begin to repeat itself? What is the purpose of repeating its self the same identically? In reality, from the limitless, there is no past or future. Each moment is eternally recorded, immutable. Saying cycle after cycle is a way of pretending to understand “5000 eternal years” because understanding eternity as “5000 years of frozen instants in eternity” is inaccessible to logical thought.
    Saying, the previous cycle or the next cycle is another easier way to understand “What is eternally.” There is only one eternal “cycle”. To help in the process of understanding eternity, we talk about cycles, or a cycle that repeats itself. “What was will be, there is nothing new under the sun,” means that what will be has already been, the future has already happened.
    The concept of self-fulfilling prophecy is often considered true. Self-fulfilling prophecy is, at first, a “false” definition of the situation, awakening a new behavior that makes the original false conception of the situation become “true”. However, considering predestination, the fact of falsely defining a situation is part of the obligatory script engraved on the soul.
    Every soul including animals etc has a registered role, without options. Therefore, the Drama is neither recorded according to our decisions nor repeated over time. From the limitless perspective, there is only one eternal now immutable and simultaneous.
    Time is not linear or circular
    From an unlimited perspective, time is an illusion (as a fourth dimension it is relative), there is only an eternal present (5,000 years, if it can be measured that way) and the soul is only aware of an instant at a time. I consider that an unlimited perspective would be from parandham, which is a state of consciousness outside of the space-time flow; just as the subtle region is a state of consciousness similar to a conscious dream, also programmed according to the drama. Time is a subjective perception of the mind or a creation of consciousness because it is tied and conditioned to space and matter, so it cannot really have a specific shape (circular, spiral, triangular, linear …). Therefore, to affirm that it is repeated is impossible (repetition implies to scroll on a timeline).
    Einstein said: “You can count on the fingers of my hands the amount of people who understands the theory of relativity”. Relativity is known as a theory because it is not understood by most, but it is part of the laws of physics. Time and space are relative, they depend on each other. Time exists because matter exists. For example if the matter reached 300,000 kilometers per second it would disappear! The soul is immaterial light and is beyond the speed of light. It is as if it does not exist by itself. Matter and time give it the possibility of existing or of manifesting itself. There is nothing beyond time and space. It takes time to exist and it takes space for there to be time.
    To grasp the truth It requires leaving the superficial scheme and look “from the limitless”. The truth is eternal, it is beyond time and space. Therefore, it cannot be trapped with the thought, since this is limited by space-time, so, the churning must bring us closer to silence, because it is there where we will savor the experience of eternal truth. We need to look at it from the light, where time and space disappear. Thus, one cannot speak of eternal time. You can talk about eternity.
    The whole and its parts
    If the drama is perfect, any scene in it is perfect. If I take each part in isolation, I fall into duality, I relativize what is absolute. Even Mayan is perfect. The existence of God would not be necessary without the “illusion”, without the vices. It is a film eternally recorded in a unique way, where each actor represents what they have to act. If Baba says that each feeling is fixed beforehand, it means that throughout the “cycle” the soul has no freedom of choice; therefore, any thoughts, words, or actions are fixed in advance. The “bad” is also “good” because it cannot be otherwise, it is perfect. Relatively, we say that we go through a perfect and an imperfect state. But from the limitless, absolute, everything is perfect.
    Efforts (renunciation) according to the Drama
    Achievements as a result of efforts? Or natural development of the paper-script recorded in the soul? There are no voluntary efforts; only a role is played with a feeling of effort, in fact, programmed in advance. The effort I make to take the glass and drink the water is fixed in advance, it is not my option.
    Do I have to be pure to remember God or do I have to remember God to purify myself? Actually I need to have an eternal record of deity by having done a lot of Bhakti that predisposes me to understand Gyan in order to remember God and this way we can have the accurate level of consciousness to be in paradise, numerically.
    In the game-play we remember God to expand and stabilize consciousness; then, what we call purification is an awareness of reality, also predestined. Nobody makes any effort, we only act the role that is engraved, like a robot without will!? Nothing is difficult or easy, it is. Each soul is designed or programmed to do what it has to do in the gear of drama. In the face of any situation: just observing with detachment, accepting and loving the fixed destiny. The most useful thing is to understand and that also depends on the fortune of each soul!
    Because each soul is required to play a role whose script is forever etched on it, no one has merit for what they do, therefore there is no point in praising someone. Not even God. Only Drama is the highest authority, the all mighty! Drama inspires our efforts, if it is in our eternal role. “You have to make efforts, but only what is fixed in the drama will happen… and therefore you should not have any expectations.” (Murli sakar 05-14-2020)
    Unlimited disinterest
    Baba considers unlimited disinterest as fundamental to achieve the transformation that He proposes to us. Authentic disinterest is only possible when there is understanding of knowledge (beyond bhaktigyan and beyond imagination) and it is enjoyed, the fullness of practical wisdom is felt. When it is based on love or fear it is fragile and vulnerable. In fact, if every feeling of the soul is recorded in advance, having unlimited disinterest is not the result of effort, is fortune, according to the drama plan!
    Faith in the intellect & Total realization
    When we don´t only know, but we also live reality, faith disappears to become a realization or illumination, the real consciousness of the soul. Faith is certainty of what is not seen, however implies (expectation) hope. Illumination is the experience of the unnameable. In the process of enlightenment, faith is lost to gain practical wisdom. Faith is not needed when seen. God has no faith, God knows. We can become equal to the Father in that regard.
    Waste time or take advantage of it
    From an unlimited perspective, time does not exist. So you can’t take advantage of or waste what doesn’t exist! Or let’s look at it this way: since I do not choose anything, I only play the role that I have recorded and that I am obliged to act automatically, including decisions, I do not have the option to take advantage or waste anything. What I do or don’t do is the result of my set script, with no change possible.
    On the other hand, if all the rol is engraved in the soul, then what I am going to decide or feel, I could look for it in the soul register, it is there, but I cannot access it. Only the moment can emerge and can vaguely remember what has happened in the present birth. If time is cyclical what I vaguely remember of this birth is my most remote future; what is about to happen is my most remote past.
    Obstacles & Guilt
    Should I feel guilty about the obstacles and storms (or contrasts in varied drama) that come into my life? If we do not create anything, because we do not even decide our actions, since our entire role is engraved in the soul, it is predestined, then there is no reason to feel guilty: “Everything is fixed in the drama. There is no need to worry ”(murli sakar 05-14-2020). Even destruction is a “causeless bloodshed”, no one is guilty. I can only use the apparent freedom I have, to connect with The Supreme (or my own reflection?), Clear my mind, accept my role in peace and enjoy it as it is; if it’s in my fortune. There he would be jumping.
    Bapsaman
    ShivBaba is neither virtuous nor powerful. He is never tested to demonstrate that it embodies specific virtues or powers. In reality, he does not need virtues or powers to play his role of giving Gyan, which is also fixed, according to Drama. He also uses the sanskaras of Brahma Baba to express himself. Brahma Baba, on the other hand, did practically express spiritual virtues and powers, also according to his fixed and predestined role.
    Brahma was able to do what he did, not because of Baba’s help, but because he was programmed to receive that knowledge and represent that behavior. Furthermore, we could say that his love for God brought him closer to Him, changed his perspective and gave him the strength and clarity to express his powers and virtues. Like when a mother draws strength and has incredible behaviors based on a child. It was not the son who gave her the strength, it was her love for her that allowed her to emerge that strength, in addition, programmed in the drama! That also happens with us.
    So it is like Brahma that we have to become: Dadsaman (?) Brahma became a companion of God. He did not melt into his love. Because what is love between two equals? There is no longer a dependency. Love is the engine that drives the encounter. Understanding the Gyan is the way. It will be a gradual transition from the stone intellect to the divine intellect, which is soul consciousness. Love is the engine that drives to promote memory. That love is initially devotional. Then it becomes bhaktigyani love, and then, with deep understanding, become companionship, the only way to become “perfect.” That is our goal. Although, in reality, we do not become perfect; we become aware of our perfection.
    In the Bapsaman state the need to ruminate knowledge disappears, the truth is lived naturally.

    QUESTIONS:
    I suggest answering the questions based on what has been seen so far, before reading the answers. I think it would be more entertaining and useful.
    1. Why from the unlimited perspective there is no duality?
    In the Gold and Silver Age there is no duality (good-bad, just-unfair, positive-negative, error-success, love-hate, happiness-suffering, … This begins in the copper age (Dwapur Yuga age of duality) because the soul identifies with the body. If we see from an unlimited perspective, even from the copper age, we would not see good or bad, etc., we would only see things happening and souls in their bodies playing their eternal roles in connection with matter. Opposites, in this sense, are only mental elaborations as a result of losing the perspective of eternity and, therefore, of predestination.
    2. Is it possible that causality and predestination coexist?
    I think there really is only predestination. Causality is a creation of the mind or a necessity of the soul. It is a mental illusion produced by the limited perception of the coherent intertwining between the events of the drama. If we look at the drama as a cycle, the causes can be seen both in the past and in the future; therefore, in reality, there are no causes. If we regress any situation that we call a consequence, looking for the cause of causes, we will conclude that the consequence is the same cause. What is, is just because, because it can not be otherwise, in this perfect drama.
    3. Why is the law of karma really a philosophy?
    If the drama is predestined, then Karma are actions and reactions programmed in a fixed script. Therefore, there can be no mistakes, successes or culprits and no rewards or punishments. On the other hand, there is no causality, since there was never a beginning and there will never be an end. If we look at drama as a cycle, the causes are in the past as well as in the future, since the past is the same future. Within the eternal script, karma has to be mentioned as a law only to fulfill the purpose of encouraging souls to express their goodness, but the choices of each soul are already programmed in advance. The theory of causality is a necessity of the soul. Karma is the development of the paper or script recorded as sanskaras. If everything is predestined, you should not blame no one, nor envy, reject, consider better or worse or any limiting comparison. Baba talks about “the philosophy of karma”, not of “the law of karma”.
    4. Looking from the limitless, does Maya really exist?
    Maya means illusion. It is an expression to describe a specific behavior of the human soul that seems good to him but that goes against its original purity, peace and well-being. However, since their decisions are programmed or predestined in the soul, as well as their consequences, then what we call Maya is just an abstract concept or game in the soul script. The soul is not “given Maya” by its will, its role simply emerges with those characteristics. On the other hand, if duality does not exist in practice, the soul is not free to choose either Maya or God.
    5. Are there really karmic accounts?
    If there is predestination then there can be no free will. So how could my actions determine my destiny (karmic accounts)? If there is no law of karma then there is no karmic account, there is only one game called acting a predestined role. Yes, apparently we have freedom of choice, but that choice, whatever it may be, was already scheduled in advance. Nothing is good or bad. No one is guilty. The eternal recording in the soul forces us to act.
    In the Tao they talk about “do not decide and you will reach satori or samadhi”. Let us also remember that, from the limitless, there is no duality. Where I am is the best place to act, if I accept it. If I deny, it won’t improve! But also, this decision depends on my fortune, or predestined program!
    We could also ask ourselves:
    “According to the Drama plan” do my actions take place? Or, “According to my actions” is the Drama plan developed?
    My actions (karma) are the result of my decisions or are they according to a fixed script?
    If they are according to a fixed script (predefined program), do I have any responsibility for my actions?
    If I have no responsibility, what would we call “karmic accounts”?
    There are no karmic accounts, only lucky or unlucky roles according to the eternally fixed sanskaras in the soul.
    6. How to define “efforts”, from the limitless?
    If we have a predestined recorded role, then the efforts are also recorded eternally, I do not choose them, therefore, it is not my will, we really only do what we are obliged to do. Furthermore, if there is no dualism, there are no achievements or failures, there are no rewards or punishments, no merits or prejudices, then what would be the objective of the efforts? Similarly, if there is no causality, there can be no such thing as effort and reward. The soul does what it has to do according to its role. The feeling of effort is also imprinted on the soul beforehand. “Their fortune inspires them to make efforts. If it is not in their fortune, what effort would they make? ” – quote from murli-. So, Purifying myself depends on yoga, yoga depends on my efforts, my efforts depend on my role in Drama, and my role in Drama depends on my fortune, in conclusion, purifying myself depends on my fortune (Baba has also said that to remember him we need pureness). So my decisions do not determine my destination.
    We could say, then, that the only desire we should have is to be free of desires. When I am free even from this desire (to be free of desires) I will know that I have attained enlightenment, total awakening, the Bapsaman state or what is the same, total consciousness of the soul. I think it is the state called videhi. It has also been said: “Drama inspires your efforts”.
    7. Considering predestination, is it possible to transform ourselves?
    What happened was fixed and perfect, what happens is already fixed and perfect; therefore, what is going to happen is fixed and perfect since the future is the same past. So I have no choice (freedom) to change something, to transform myself. Sanskaras cannot be changed. You cannot transform the past and neither can the future because this is the same past, therefore, no one can transform and even less transform someone. You cannot change what is eternally fixed, predestined. You can’t squeeze an orange and demand that mango juice come out. Simply, a fixed role is being expressed in the soul in advance. Drama is made up of successive eternally programmed changes. What I can do is accept my role, trust that he is very good, and enjoy the fortune of being a Brahmin. We are the only souls that have the possibility of having the correct understanding of Drama in our register!
    8. What is Eternity?
    Baba talks about “Cycle after cycle” that is, the previous one and the one that follows. If there is a sequence of cycles it implies a timeline on which the cycles repeat. That leaves us in the paradoxical position of when and why the cycle began to repeat itself (as in the big bang theory, in which they give the universe a start!). From limited consciousness, trapped in space-time, one only perceives one at a time, but from the perspective or unlimited consciousness, from the light, all the moments of the 5,000 years exist at the same time. Hence, in a trance, souls can “live” in paradise for a time, or Brahmins meet with deities of paradise (in the subtle region). But it is easier for the intellect to understand and accept the idea of continuous cycles than the idea of eternity as “timeless”, where every moment of the past, present and future are there, simultaneously. Understanding eternity in this way is part of the upper Gyan, experiencing the territory, the pure, absolute, silent truth. In any case, the understanding of the Gyan is an indefinite number and is mostly a matter of interpretation.
    9. Where is actually Parandham ?
    Baba says that in parandham there is no time or space, sound or movement (he has said that the home is tiny). There cannot be a “place” where there is no space or time. Therefore, there cannot be a “world of souls”…
    So when Baba says’ we are residents of parandham “he means that we are always in parandham but we are not aware of it. I would say that it is a state of consciousness that we disconnect from by entering the space-time dimension. Residence implies place therefore we also do not “come down” from somewhere. One cannot reside where there is no time and space. Baba has said that parandham “is not a world.”
    Giving parandham a place, like Drama for a while, is Baba’s pedagogical strategy to access the “stone intellects” and motivate them to explore more, grind your own ingredients and cleanse themselves while achieving a divine intellect that they can understand. these subtle points: that space and time are an elaboration of the mind, that without knowing it we are “always” residents of parandham. We just need to be aware of it. In the end, you just have to drop everything related to space and time, which will be painful for many. We are preparing ourselves, learning to detach ourselves, to make that transition to another body in another time (paradise), in the best way.
    Because, there really is no return, since in parandham there is no time or space. Souls who do not experience the golden and silver age in practice, cannot stay 2,500 years waiting in parandham! After the final war they instantly go on to express their role at their proper time, when they leave their bodies, unless they stay wandering like ghosts. The same happens with all souls. But, if time does not exist, can we talk about “the moment that corresponds to it? It is there where trying to explain eternity is complicated, since using thoughts implies time; and eternity is beyond time. You can only intuit, feel, experience in silence. That is true soul consciousness, when you are beyond the experience space-time limit.
    And finally, if in parandham there is no time or space, where is God actually? Could it be that the only existence of God is when he is giving us Gyan through the body of Brahma Baba? Could it be that God is eternally giving gyan? “The Word became flesh …” It has been said!
    10. Is the space limited or unlimited?
    If space and time are two parallels and time is eternal (seeing time as a cycle, the future is the same past), then space is unlimited. If we manage to experience timelessness, we can grasp the meaning of space. This cannot be explained intelligibly in words either. Astrophysicists say that when the speed of light is reached, that is, if we become light, space will disappear and we could go from one galaxy to another in an instant. According to Riemann’s geometry, if you go on a straight-line flight, we begin to see just what we left behind!
    11. Does faith determine fortune or does fortune determine faith?
    Baba says that faith brings victory. Faith is complete certainty in what I do not know. If all the role is already engraved on the soul, its level of faith is also engraved. So we could say that the type of role is what determines if I am lucky or not, in the sense that I have the record of a high status in paradise or not. Baba speaks, “if he is in his fortune,” that is, if he has it engraved on his soul. If the soul has emperor of paradise sanskaras, it will have faith and do what it has to do according to that role. My fortune determines my faith. Although there is no causality, if there is a coherent logic all states of consciousness and between all the moments of the Drama.
    12. Can we choose to behave well or badly?
    If everything is predestined, we are all programmed with fixed eternal roles, then we would have no choice to behave well or badly. Any type of behavior would simply be the automatic expression of that role or script recorded in the soul. Similarly, positive experience, happy or negative and bitter, are a natural expression of the role fixed in advance in the soul and not the consequence of any type of behavior. Let us remember that, on an unlimited level, there is no causality. Decisions are also the result of a fixed role, eternally predestined.
    13. How to differentiate experience from imagination?
    How can I be sure that I am aware of the soul, of the subtle or incorporeal region or of God Himself, and that it is not an imagination? If I enjoy these states, if they are not forced, if they give me a feeling of happiness and security, if they facilitate the “transformation”, then it would be said that they are authentic experiences and not just imagination. It must be from logic and from there it becomes in feeling. This is why Baba calls memory “yoga of the intellect” and not yoga of the mind. The result is to experience the virtues and powers. Furthermore, I can prove that I experience this awareness by being fearless, angerless, and sadnessless. On the other hand, it is a very personal experience that depends on the fortune of each soul, its role in the drama.
    On the other hand, it is true that imagination can help us generate an experience and that experience can come to be considered true. Also in bhakti they have very powerful visions and experiences that reinforce their beliefs. So this process of imagining to create experiences is only a temporary support to come to understand that those experiences must end in the true consciousness of the soul, which is the “Bapsaman” state, as explained above.
    14. Why or for what do we exist?
    Actually, the Drama of Life has no purpose. It is just because. If it had a purpose, we would have to answer the question, when did it start, whose desire was it and the initial reason for the phenomenon of life to occur? We cannot answer that the idea was from God, because Himself is tied to Drama. Furthermore, we have concluded that time does not exist, therefore there is no beginning, there is no future, there is no past. There is only one eternal present. There is no answer to the question: “Why being and not nothingness?”
    Until not reaching Bapsaman state, it is better to continue believing that Baba is there, in another dimension without time, protecting us, etc. until you reach full soul consciousness. And don’t take it too seriously, anyway, this Drama is a game, the Great Lila (in Hinduism “divine play”).
    There are many more quotes from murlis in screenshots, underpinning these themes, if you want I can provide you with some.
    Thank you and congratulations on your consideration of these issues. I wish you enjoy this adventure of expanding the intellect to see other possibilities of interpretation of the Gyan and bon appetit.
    OM SHANTI

      Thank you
      I don’t churn gyan now because I don’t understand it. I listen murli and focus on gyan related to self awareness, detached observation and rest is story for me and practice yoga to change my programming of mind from negative to positive because to be free from thoughts it is difficult to jump from negative to self awareness. The BK experience increased my sexual obsessive nature and neediness of a partner.
      I am only concerned to be free from it as it has made my life stagnant.
      Thank you very much.

    Question: Regeneration of sexual habits 

    Thank you for your questionsbeingurselfadmin.” Sexuality is a theme which most Bks are engaged with willingly or unwillingly. Denial or repression of it exacerbates its natural flow.

    I will answers your questions as I feel they are for the common good.

    #1: Those creatures or beings of what is known as “lower realms” have many names: Some call them succubus and incubus, others will refer to them or something similar as “etheric plasma,” others will refer to those as “ghosts” or “evil,” etc. Humans are good with names and just like the word “God,” it means many things to different people, although the label has a common denominator for all.

    There are some individuals that can ‘see’ those entities, others can ‘feel’ them and others are completely unaware of them. You call those, “souls without a body to express themselves.” That works for me. What matters is to be aware of “you” and “them.” If you are unaware, you may think that everything comes from you.

    On question #2, when I refer to “holes” is when the protection that we naturally have to avoid transgression from others realms is broken, then they can come in easily. Many individuals with mental illnesses are in this category. Their “aura” (there may be technical labels for this) is open and other entities come in. Thus, they suffer personality changes or they may feel the collective sorrow with greater intensity specially at this time. Sometimes, they are being possessed in some degree and their minds will hear voices from other beings. There are many cases and many definitions, but the bottom line is: Are you aware that “you” are no longer “you”? As mentioned before, these “holes” can be created when a person experiences low self love, when intimately they do not love themselves, when they feel bad about themselves. There could be many other “reasons,” but to be aware that this is happening to you means that resolution is on the way. Obviously, when we change the pattern towards self love, the aura regenerates. That is why, many religions emphasize to BE good and to have clean wholesome habits to practice, nevertheless; many times those become a source of repression for the individual. BEING “good” is not just a matter of practice. We need to assimilate Life in awareness, to understand how everything happening to us has relationship in and out of ourselves.

    I have witnessed aura regeneration from the work of a person in contact with beings of light. Many times these individuals have a connection with beings from higher realms, who are helping humanity through them. These people are “instruments” for healing, “chosen” because they have a vocation for service and lack of concern with personal profit.

    Now, on your third question. You have acknowledged that your habit is no longer healthy for you. That is the beginning of the cure. While psychologists, priests and spiritual authorities debate whether masturbation is “good” or “bad,” in my experience everything depends on the intention behind. That is where we need to concentrate. As you describe, it is easier to use the pleasurable habit of masturbation rather than build a relationship with someone who may not fit our desires. It is far less work and less problematic. Therefore, we are using that habit to seclude ourselves and create our own fantasy world. As described in the previous articles, that habit will attract energies around us, colored with the type of emotion displayed in the act. You may wake up in the middle of the night with a strong itch to masturbate even while feeling satisfied. That is a signal that this “itch” is not coming from you.

    My recommendation is to look at your emotional issues. For instance, you may have some guilt issues with masturbation as a child/teenager, or something related with the influence of women in your life including your mother. You may need help in this aspect first. I recommend alternative healing rather than psychologists. There are many modalities of healing dealing with emotional issues, however; you need to be aware of what was the issue bringing that habit out of control. Then, of course; it is to stop the habit (Amrit Vela is a good practice to avoid this habit- Wake up at 4 AM or earlier) and even change to a different room or place to sleep if possible, as being in the same environment, will trigger the habit until it is energetically cleaned, which will take some time to find the “right” people (shaman) to do it. Finally, you may need to avoid any sort of “temptation” specially from the computer realm. Here is when will power is useful. Many individuals are unaware that energies move through the digital world with ease and as BapDada said, the cure for lust is “pure feelings and good wishes from the heart” for all, this requires for the heart to open and to feel universal love for all beings.

    Sexuality can help a human ascend as long as love is the engine, the intention behind. Otherwise, it could deplete and create unnecessary havoc in ourselves and relationships with others.

      Thank you brother for sharing. My understanding from this is overall – observe and being more awareness, check where am I feeling bad about myself, emotional issues which I am still holding onto and take care of the content being consumed by senses.

      Thanks for taking out the time!

    Brahma Kumaris: The path of regeneration – 2 

    When understanding addictions as actions, it is important to observe that actions by themselves are neutral. Our intention behind that action will give us the consequence which will be experienced by the one who initiated the activity. The consequence of the action is known in Brahma Kumaris as karma; but there is no acknowledgment of the intention, when in fact intention of the individual is what determines the consequence of the action.

    Let me elaborate this further: To drink alcohol in itself is neutral. There are many reasons to do that. However, what is the intention? Is it to have a good time with friends? Or perhaps to escape from self absorption? When the activity becomes repetitive, then we create a habit and the former enjoyment will be gone and replaced by a sense of being dragged towards alcohol or some other thing which gives us a high. Our mind will crave for that outlet as it is a known source of pleasure. As the habit persist it will have consequences in our health on one side, which is the “scientifically proven” side. Nevertheless, it has other ramifications in the spiritual world.

    There are many entities which are non material. These entities will feed through the energetic outcome of BEING: A drunk person (BEING) is an easy prey for those energies.

    Many times, will power is not enough when the habit is very strong, for there is no more will power in the individual with addictions. These entities will look to “eat” and nag the person in many unusual and persistent ways which unaware individuals will believe comes from within.

    When a person is secluded or separated from what is perceived as the cause of his addiction; the habit may subside, but the tendency will stay. The mind will bring thoughts to remember past activities and it is here when we need to OBSERVE the mind, acknowledge its content and channel the mind into other pursues: The mind will say- “I want this.” The observer will say: “Yes, I know, but look at this other thing, it is fantastic!”

    There is no need to repress, for a repressed mind is surely a source of mental health issues and a source of violence. A violent mind is destructive, self-destructive.

    In a nutshell, those sources of addictions are not in itself “bad.” What is important to be conscious of, is the type of intention behind the addiction. That is what most will fail to observe and acknowledge; for as we know, the “cure” of any addiction starts by acknowledging that we ARE addicted. Before that, there is no conscious action, no awareness and that is the sorry state of many.

    The recognition that our minds speaking back to us, is not “me,” is extremely important. Once there is this recognition we will learn to listen to the comments of our minds and be able to politely dismiss them. The mind is a repository of conditioning, not enabling us to be creative. It is when the stream of creativity in our lives is blocked; when self absorption begins and with that separation from Life.

    Secluded, in our own little mind driven world; without the ability to integrate with Life and relate with others; we are easy prey of different energies until the moment of awakening arrives, usually when we are unable to function in Life. Without observing this, we will resort to the “medicine” of repression which works just like a scientific “medicine” for mental health known as pills: The dreamer is taken to another dream, hoping that he will soon wake up in “reality.” But one more time; the tendency will be there unless we observe the real source of the addiction which is typically, of emotional nature: Some traumatic experience which we were unable to process.

        Not anyone but some. The path is like a wooden door already built through ideas, beliefs, etc. A person is like the hole where the door should fit. As long as the door fits the hole, there is a match, otherwise, there are more doors to try…

    Brahma Kumaris: The path of regeneration – 1 

    When we hear the word “regeneration,” there could be many assumptions as this word has different meanings. In this article, we are using the meaning of “restoration.”

    That is the same word that could be applied to the restoration of mental and physical health of an addict. In fact, many BK followers may have addiction issues, which the BK path will subside.

    When we hear the word “addiction,” immediately we think drugs, sex and alcohol. That is true, but there are more, in fact; we could express that what BK knowledge labels as “vices” are truly addictions, habits which even though we could understand mentally, there is no change whatsoever in our BEING.

    Just like many addictions are treated, there will be periods of using the common medicine of repression. Many will make those repressions into a Lifestyle.

    Some individuals are addicted to relationships. They crave the security that these bring; although it is imaginary. There are people addicted to low self esteem, as these boost their sense of martyrdom, of feeling as a victim which will give them a pep vibe, which is necessary for them.

    What is the common ground of all addictions? The sense of self absorption, isolation.

    Why deal with the world and with others, when we can get our fix, that which is so important in our lives to function; through some other means which is much lesser complicated?

    The sense of guilt, shame and fear will exacerbate our need for comfort. Pleasure “little treasure” will come to the rescue.

    Observe the structure of a yogi life, observe the structure of the BK life to understand that by denying all those “little pleasures,” the door for indulgence is shut down.

    That is the methodology to deal with an addictive personality. Even society uses that method; although there is no recognition of those “vices” as potential addictions, which are supporting our self absorption.

    In fact, the BK life style will give the sense of improvement, as those “addictions” will not have the opportunity to come up: A typical BK is a busy individual. Whenever there is “free time,” (little pleasure) there is “seva” (service) to help. That breaks the habit of self absorption, which eventually brings other popular mental ailments such as depression, which is very popular in our times.

    Everything may seem fine, until the “method” is no longer followed. What happens then? The habit comes up even stronger than ever.

    That observation was pointed out in the Murlis; whenever a follower left then it is said something like: “He became even a stronger sinner than before.”

    Methods are meant to stop the behavior, but the tendency is still there. Someone truly has changed, only when the addictive behavior changes when the method is no longer followed. That is something to observe and take note.

    What is the solution then? There are many and all depends on the individual make up. This is not a “One size fits all” type of solution. Nevertheless, the observation of repetitive behaviors will give us the tools, to avoid the consolidation of a habit into a sanskar. (Will continue.)

    Violence is the root of the “sword of lust.” 

    If violence is one of the main generator of our food choices as when we support slaughter without remorse, then that force also has a great impact in our sexuality.
    In Brahma Kumaris parlance, sex is identified as the “sword of lust.” It is important then to observe how lust is related with violence.

    Sexuality is like a knife: It could be useful and blissful in a compassionate being which will help to carve and sculpt an ego-less being or a dangerous tool in a violent one. Many are a mix in between thus, making many wounds to others and themselves.

    When the BK belief states: “God says that we should practice strict celibacy for sex is the gateway to hell.” Then, there is no way out for the follower. A typical “normal” human being will cherish sexuality, unless there are mental or past traumatic experiences or diseases in the background.

    Guilt will be the main trauma to consider going against what “God says.” When that guilt is exploited, the end result is a person who rejects sex or is unable to fully embrace sexuality even after the BK experience. 

    It all depends on the depth of that belief and the emotional investment in it. It is difficult to generalize; but guilt will be there nonetheless, which could be shown as fear of failure to meet expectations in some, or lack of intimacy in others.

    It is important then to realize that an emotionally disturbed individual, cannot be material for “heaven,” although; he may be a “pukka” (firm) follower.

    Many variables to comply with BK celibacy may be out of the hands (conscious awareness) of the individual. For instance there may be influences from the “lower spiritual world” known as plasma or even Succubus and Incubus, which have been experienced by many although; those experiences could be colored with someone’s belief. There are many types of “spiritual entities” which will feed themselves with human “vibes” which are produced through sexual energy. The aura field protecting humans, may have “holes” and these entities will have the chance to enter and lure individuals into obtaining their energy, their vitality. Lack of self love is one of the causes for getting those aura holes.

    Why am I sharing this? If a person is sexual by nature, but there is repression to his normal sexuality, then there will be an inner fight which will cause guilt and then low self-love. See the relationship? On the other extreme, Pornography in itself is not evil (nothing wrong with looking at naked people wasting their vitality) but the way we indulge in it by feeding the mind with experiences which are not real to us, will exacerbate the perversity of the mind to look for further pleasure, to make that stronger, to add violence and make it different and to repeat the experience as many times as possible. This will produce a fantasy world which will take the person out of the “real world” and real relationships. That creates a psychological trauma where the life force is sucked out of the person which unwillingly will feed entities, scavengers of the lower realms. We may say in the meantime, it is “my karma” or the “sanskar will not go away.” Sexuality is not the issue, but all the traumas we have created are.

    Surrounding violence will attract further violence from this lower realm or others. For that reason to be aware, conscious of our repetitive thoughts, our repetitive behaviors and moods, is of great importance to untie the puzzle and liberate ourselves from any self created “golden” pleasurable jail, where sexuality becomes unfairly, the culprit.

    Beliefs are usually categorized into “true” or “false.” That is for the novice. For a conscious being, beliefs are helpful or unhelpful. What has been helpful at one time, could not be at another. It all depends on where we are in our spiritual journey.

      Hi Brother,

      Thanks a lot for your articles.
      I have a couple of questions if you can please take some time out to answer them

      1) What are those ‘lower spiritual entities feeding themselves with human vibes’ which you talk about? Are these souls who don’t have a body yet to express themselves?
      2) Can you explain more on ‘Aura Holes’? How do we end up creating them and how can we fill them up ?
      3) I am following the BK path for a couple of years and find myself very sexual by nature. Even though lately I have let go of ‘shoulds’ and ‘should not’ and have accepted this sexual energy. But expressing this sexual energy is something I am struggling with. It’s like, to express it I will need to ‘look’ or ‘seek’ a willing partner, which somehow feels like an endeavor I don’t pursue. I mean, I would prefer it happening with ‘flow’ instead of me seeking and approaching women randomly or via dating apps. So I don’t end up doing anything about it. So when this sexual energy piles up over time I end up being ‘possessed’ by it and masturbate using a fantasy world in my mind.
      I don’t find this healthy either. How should one channelize this energy? Or what are your thoughts generally on this?

      Thanks

        Hello
        I am following Brahmakumaris for more than 7 years now. For first six months it was a very nice experience because of feelings although I didn’t practice yoga at home but was regular in class. Then I started searching in internet about dharna from there I got confused when I read truth about Brahmakumaris but I didn’t believe in it because it was baised. My search continued there I found your Blog which was very helpful. I am unmarried and sexually addicted to fantasy this habit also started appearing stronger and I got sexually attracted towards BK sister teacher. She started making distances with me which felt bad to me this tendency continued I also explained the issue to sister but no help she shared loveful feelings to me and I became dependent on her as I was not practicing yoga at home, I continued the class to feel the loveful atmosphere. I was also used in IT service but she was not open towards me. My fantasy increased but I didn’t got any solutions i read your blog about observation and awareness but it worked for few days this tendency is becoming stronger and I am not able to do my daily tasks and communication with people. When I see sister talking nicely to others and make distance with me I felt Jealous and bad about myself now I am also not used for IT service as this service has been given to new brother which is also unbearable for me as sister is very much involved towards her. This has created trauma to me I am all the time thinking about sister I am felling very depressed. I tried other forms of yoga through YouTube which is not very much helpful to me because I am not regular in practice. I am going to centre weekly here I get some relief and sister is also helping indirectly but my condition is getting worst. What is your suggestion to me please help.

            Thank you very much
            Before gyan I had this fantizing habit but it was not the issue but here as I
            was feeling good I wanted to spent some time with sister but she didn’t understand my feelings and started avoiding and doubting me that felt bad to me. I tried to transform this but failed, in your blog I had once asked suggestion from you. You said don’t repress sexuality so I continued fantizing I thought this will release my repression but the tendency became stronger and as I didn’t get help from sister side due to her closed nature. Now as far as I understand I wanted to spent some time with loving partner but due to my fantizing habit she avoided me which I felt bad and wanted to transform it but nothing happened and sister is now ignoring me and involved with new brother this has made my thought more voilent and reactive towards her. I am feeling very bad as I wanted to change my habit because of her but she changed. I am thinking about her all the time and not able to do my regular task carefully. Is it a mental illness should i consult to psychiatrist I don’t want to take medicine because I think it will not help much. My question has become very long please bear with me because I want to make my situation clear to you. I find you the right person to respond in this situation. Your blog has been a great help in my journey. This 7 years I spent most of my time in searching to understand myself and cut myself from society. I didn’t practiced yoga sufficiently is this also the reason my habit became stronger. There is very struggle in every aspect of my life. Should I continue or leave the path I have no other issue than this. Sister’s loveful feeling has helped me a lot when I don’t visit for a long time she calls me. I am emotionally attached towards her.
            Thank you very much

    Food and Spirituality 

    There are already many articles on BK food items and Vegetarianism, here:

    https://avyakt7.wordpress.com/2016/06/09/question-on-bk-food-items/

    https://avyakt7.wordpress.com/2020/01/29/bk-food-items-2/

    https://avyakt7.wordpress.com/2019/02/27/on-vegetarianism-and-veganism/

    As humans try to separate things into “departments,” (food, spirituality, sex, etc.) and believe that every department is its “own boss,” many “moral” issues come up.

    A human being at this time is violent. That violence will impregnate what he does, what he thinks, what he IS. A violent human will eat accordingly: Many times by giving suffering to others who are defenseless. That sort of cowardice goes along with violence.

    There is also a kind of more sensitive human who even though violent, will use his mind and sensibility to act in certain way, he will abstain (repress) from eating something to be congruent with his beliefs; for example vegetarianism.

    “Vegetarianism is the practice of abstaining from the consumption of meat, and may also include abstention from by-products of animal slaughter. Vegetarianism may be adopted for various reasons. Many people object to eating meat out of respect for sentient life.”

    That Google definition precisely includes the practice of repression out of some moral value. However, violence of such person will be there and it could manifest in supporting a “good” cause: Veganism or Vegetarianism by fighting with others to have their ideal considered and adapted by society.

    Many “Spiritual” people will have inner fights in “choosing” what food items are “more spiritual” and consistent with their beliefs.

    It is my experience now, that what you ARE dictates what you eat. It is not the opposite, which is what most would like to believe. If someone becomes a BK follower that person will adopt the belief of lacto- vegetarianism. If that person was a meat eater, he will have a repression to adapt to. If that person was a vegan before, then he will have a problem when BK food brings milk as a “pure” food item to consume.

    We may acknowledge that human violence is out of control, and there are many animals suffering at this time due to that violent behavior which is masked through the “need” for profit. We need to consider that human consciousness is complex and diverse: There are many willing to help astray animals from dying but at the same time don’t hesitate eating a burger or milk and eggs to support their death. That “moral” inconsistency is observed many times: For instance countries with a high value for patriotism through organized killing in the name of protecting a country or an ideal, at the same time may profess a religious belief prohibiting killing human beings. Typically, these unaware individuals are too busy “making money,” watching tv, and reproducing themselves, that is “being successful.”

    There are people who believe that to “fight” with another group is the solution to change society’s values. They want to DO something NOW. However, repression will be there for certain groups to endure and that repression is a form of oppression which will explode at another time, causing further violence. As there are many types of people, “the actors must play their parts” and align with what they ARE.

    Change to be natural, takes some time. It is a process of realizing things for ourselves. Change does not happen in the adoption of a belief. As long as violence is lingering in the human consciousness, anything a human does, will have that trademark, even a belief system could be violent.

    From food items to eat, we ended up in the observation of our own consciousness; for that is the origin which we may need to consider to live harmoniously. Hopefully in this journey, we may find the true meaning of Compassion, which may be the ultimate answer to mankind violence.
