    BEING does not change through intellectual understanding. 

    Gayathri wrote an article which she shared it here.
    In this article, she expresses her understanding of the Drama, the soul and the predestined roles; explained in her unique ways supported by her own experiences.
    I am appreciative of her sharing. It is a well written article.

    However, her second article here is my favorite. Why?
    It is “real.” Anyone could observe her words in our own selves. We have been conditioned to believe that “ I create my thoughts,” we go with that belief, even though, plain observation and awareness may convey otherwise. It requires “effort” to look without bias. She just shared a third article here, which is equally good.

    However, after understanding intellectually all of those wonderful things; ARE we detached observers, or simply happy enjoying the movie of Life?
    No?
    Then of what good is that ”understanding”?

    If we suffer a disease, we should be happy. Right? Didn’t Baba tell us to be happy by paying happily our “debts,” our karmic accounts?

    In a nutshell: What we DO is to fake what we truly feel. To add a few more days of fake intellectual happiness until the mind gets “needy” again. Then, it needs another fix of beliefs.

    Brahma Kumaris is the path of the mind (Raja Yoga.)
    Baba is giving “reasons,” “truths,” “explanations,” and even “churnings” of intelligent children with “good intellects” to satisfy the hunger of “knowledge” of the children.
    He is giving all of that because the “children” are trapped in their own minds.

    We are conditioned to believe in something. We are conditioned to believe that when we know the “truth,” that will save us, that will make us “special.”
    But we can only go as far as our conditioning permits.

    For instance, we “know” the Drama is predestined, but yet we believe that there is good and bad, right or wrong. We label people, situations, circumstances, accordingly.
    If the Drama is predestined how is it possible to label something as “bad”? It was necessary. “Beneficial.” Thus, Is a low status “bad”? Is the Iron age “bad”? 
    “Churn” about it. But if you ARE invested in a belief system, you cannot explore. You are limited by your conditioning.

    The mind creates the “I.”
    The “I” creates predestination and free will. Those words and their meaning only exist in the mind, not in Life.
    Are we “actors”? An actor is aware of being an actor by learning a script. We are not aware of being actors. We don’t learn scripts. We believe that we make them. We feel that what is happening is “real.” We feel that it is not a play. Then why lie to ourselves?

    To calm the mind and get out of our sorrow temporarily.
    We are looking for a way to escape our sorrow and disappointments in Life.

    We are willing to make this Life a martyrdom so in the “afterlife,” we could be someone “special.” That is how desperate we are.

    The medicine is to go through the experience itself. Not to try to escape it. Light is at the end of that tunnel. We need to walk to the other side. We may be afraid, we may be attached to our current situation, we may value the safety of the known (even though suffering) greater than the unknown.

    A Sakar Murli has said that “courage” is the predominant quality of a Deity soul.
    Be courageous. Everything and anything is bound to start and to finish. That is our experience. No need to add beliefs or intellectual theories.
    Courage is the quality which allows a person to BE despite the different types of weather. Life is that weather. The weather is seasonal. That is our experience. No beliefs are necessary.

    By covering our mind with beliefs and intellectual realizations, we may calm the mind; but never BEING.
    Whether we believe to be a soul, a spirit or a body is of no consequence.

    Enjoy the experience of living. The contrasts, the surprises, the challenges, etc. Whether it repeats eternally or not, is of no consequence at all. What matters is “Now.”
    “Now” is the only time when we can experience and enjoy Life. As mentioned before: Enjoyment and appreciation are “good” karma for all.

    For the common good.

    Until November 30th! 🙂

      Dear brother,
      I read all your articles and i like it. There is a place in my heart that your writings are good and i should pay attention to it. I try to understand the depth of your writings. But, recently I could not feel comfortable and there is struggle in the mind to understand what you mean. I do not able to make it. Probably i have conditioned my mind for certain beliefs. Now, i want to get it clarified by writing my understandings to align with what you are writing. Kindly help me to understand.

      1) “If we suffer a disease, we should be happy. Right? Didn’t Baba tell us to be happy by paying happily our “debts,” our karmic accounts?”

      Earlier, If there is a disease, i used to think why for me? I used to envy on people who have good health. It is so funny if others are also getting the disease then, it was ok for me. Probably feeling of I am no less than others.

      Due to the understanding of Gyan, now I know, it has come to settle the accounts. I understand Drama is beneficial in this way as it operates according to the imperishable perfect law of karma. This understanding automatically puts full stop to the questions in the mind. As mind becomes healthy, it is easy to get through the disease. There used to be instances to think that i got this so i would have done something bad. Over a period of time, I relinquished myself out of the guilt and develop acceptance. I made the point to think what is in hand now to do about it. Be embodiment of solutions is my favourite.

      2) Is a low status “bad”? Is the Iron age “bad”?

      If i understand drama well, i won’t say it is bad but accurate.

      3) Are we “actors”? An actor is aware of being an actor by learning a script. We are not aware of being actors. We don’t learn scripts. We believe that we make them. We feel that what is happening is “real.” We feel that it is not a play. Then why lie to ourselves?

      Actors means there is no choice but to play the script. Though I do not know the script, i am destined to act which is already there in the script. If there is a freewill, then i will not be called as actor. So to understand me as actor is to play my roles as destined without attaching to that. Act, but be detached and attach to your original self. This understanding helps me to accept others as i know that they are acting in this way. This act is based on their consciousness throughout the drama and my interactions with them in the past.

      The medicine is to go through the experience itself. Not to try to escape it. Light is at the end of that tunnel.
      What do you mean by this brother?
      My understanding and dharana is,
      Through the understanding of the perfect actor and co-actors in this drama of life, i am able to give attention to maintain my original status. There is no enmity, judgmental feelings on others.

    Life is about the complete experience. 

    When we rationalize Life, that is; when we live in the mind, we typically “choose” one side of the range of the experience and reject the other.
    For example, the experience of being a “sinner” will bring the experience of being a “saint.” We may reject “sinner” but “saint” is only part of the complete experience. Thus, I am a sinner or a saint? That is the question of the conditioned mind. In “reality,” sinner nor saint exist (for some consciousness) as both are part of the total experience. However, sinner and saint exist, they are “realities”  for other type of consciousness.

    Likewise,  because we experience “life,” we will experience “death.” For some consciousness, there is no death. Just like the Deities in the “Golden Age,” experienced according to BK philosophy. There is reincarnation for them. For us, that is only a belief for we are not in that consciousness.

    For Avyakt7-NG, it does not matter whether there is reincarnation or not. “I” am never the same. Who will reincarnate?  We want to know which “philosophy” is “right or wrong,” believe what is “right,” but that does not matter at all, if there is no consciousness behind it.
    There is no single experience  in Life which is “better” than another. It is just a complementary, fleeting experience.
    This is an unlimited vision. 

    In a limited vision, we are bound by our own “choices.” We select and reject. We fight to keep our selection not seeing that Life has its own movement. Therefore, there is suffering after the enjoyment of what we perceive to be a happy moment, a happy finding, a happy circumstance, etc. All of that is bound to change.
    This has been misinterpreted as: ” It is better not to have desires. It is better not to be happy since suffering will come by…” Again, this is a gross misinterpretation of  someone living in logic, reason, the mind. Life does not move under the constraint of logic and reasoning, but our society pretends to do it, although it does not.

    Enjoy every experience, for it is unique. 

    Remember when “you” were a 6-year-old? This is inaccurate, for “you” (now) were not that one before. All that mattered at that time was to experience Life. The intellectual stuff was added later. That in return gave us a persona, an identity of separation. It was necessary to function in our society, but as we continued on with the conditioning, we forgot our other side, the “no-I,” which does not think about such matters.
    We cannot control our lives according to our thoughts. If we try to control, we will never live.
    Society requires the “I.” Life does not. When you go to sleep every night, there is no certainty that “you” will wake up. Where are you during that time?
    Many have died during their sleep. Our conditioning is that we will wake up again in the safety of our bedroom, but that is just a thought, that we believe in.
    To deal with that uncertainty, our minds have created religious beliefs and all sorts of “life insurance” so we could continue on in the afterlife.
    Those are tricks to mitigate the anxiety of not being “I,” that is fear of BEING “No-I.”

    The paradox is that even though mentally we know that “there is nothing new,” (As per BK belief) experientially, everything is new for us.
    That is the bridge that we have to cross and see that what truly matters is what our consciousness perceives, not what the mind is able to understand. Learning happens when we move according to our consciousness. Dishonesty happens when we move according to the “right” belief. We will do and say what we don’t feel.

    We have been conditioned in so many ways. That 6-year-old does not know about that conditioning that we may understand now through our own experience.
    So, is it “better” to be ignorant then, like a dog?
    There is no “better.” Life is only offering us different experiences. A self-realized individual will know both sides of the coin through their own experience, and will see that this coin is “real” and at the same time is not real. The “I” makes the coin. Life does not know about any coins. That is only a human perception.

    Coincidences do not exist in Life. That label is a human invention meaning “I don’t know, but I will cover my ignorance with a nice label.”
    Life does not depend on me nor on you. It just happens, it is there: Breathing is there, eating, sleeping, etc. Enjoy the experience. Know it. Let it go through “you,” become AWARE of it when it is happening, for otherwise the mind, will “remember” that “I had that experience yesterday,” and the mind will make that unique experience  of “now” into something “old.”

    That is why it is said, that a new consciousness is in the experience of “no-mind,” for “no-I” is there. Knowing “I” and “no-I” you had the complete experience. “You” may be self-realized in the consciousness of both complementary experiences.

    What do I need to DO to get there? we may ask.
    Nothing. You could wait and live in some sort of a vacuum in fear as not to experience Life, for “you” will feel safe, or you could enjoy the ride. That may be “your” choice.   Whatever “your” choice, Enjoy it. That is the key. Know that it is OK to change with Life.

    For the common good.

          Dear sweet brother in the no I state😊 saying Love U means nothing but my expression of gratitude 😊😊😊.I also told U (love you) in the previous article which U may have overlooked.I used to follow avyakt7 before his change to Ananda searching for the truth of bk.(e.g. 5000 years , repeat cycle.etc.etc)where I got not so convincing answers😊) but that was a required stage and is a part of my journey If not I wouldn’t have reached my present stage . I Like it when you spoke about existing before existence and outside the 3 world’s (egg shaped figure in bk gyan.😊😊) I have learnt/learning many good things in bk and still love to read the daily murli and extract what is good for me.Now a days I feel myself growing on my journey, overcoming obstacles in the easiest way possible not forgetting the invisible parasite of EGO clinging to me where ever I go🤔😊Honestly speaking I’m not interested in satyug /becoming diety/Baap ka khazana etc.etc. as I am sick of all that crap😣I am satisfied with this Life enjoyed/suffered enough and am not interested in this (NOT SO INTERESTING DRAMA) as Gayatri ben put it.😊😊…Just curious to know as to HOW I CAME INTO EXISTENCE 🤔 🤔 when I see the beauty of nature and it’s precision a thought comes that there has to be an intelligent designer behind all these things. ( a computer CANNOT assemble on its own unless there is an intelligent designer 🤔🤔?? and our human body is more sophisticated than the most sophisticated computer.😊and finally going into non existence doesn’t matter as there wouldn’t be a curious mind to desire anything…🤔🤔🤔for me that, is the NO I state 😊😊😊…/ Have a desire free and egoless journey and wish me the same. Also waiting for Anandas juicy carrots which makes my journey interesting…..Love U too 😊😊😊

            Best to you Joseph, your so many similes in every reply remind me of the Romeo from Romeo and Juliet, wish you all the best.
            HOW I CAME INTO EXISTENCE, My experience says that silence can give you an answer for this. You know what silence I am talking about! 🙂
            And just a question from my side, if there is a designer of this existence, who designed that designer of the existence??
            Perhaps you will have to start one more journey to find the designer of the designer! And if you don’t find the designer of the designer!! you may conclude that the design of the designer may not have a designer!! Don’t get confused because of usage of so many “Designer” words 😛

                Answers used to matter so much in the period before I came in contact with Ahnanda and Osho, and answers were important even after I started exploring both of them from serious point of view, but now the experience of those answers is what I am seeking, although the AWARENESS while going through those experiences is still lacking 🙂
                One more thing to say here, Ahnanda and Osho both are unique in theirs point of view, I was a stupid and a fool to consider them as similar or different 🙂

    Question on the meaning of Bapsaman 

    Am I love ?…please tell me how to make that or feel it a reality. Do I have to be SOUL CONSCIOUS to Feel that I am love??? Also it is just impossible to become AAP SAMAN unless I have had the same /exact experiences you have had to bring you in your present state .Why does the Murli say you have to make others aap saman also baap saman???How do I go about it?

    There is no recipe for BEING Love. That is not something that a man can tell to another. Otherwise, only 1 book about becoming Love could have been necessary for the whole humanity, and there hasn’t been any yet, despite “best sellers.”
    Why did you add that it could be necessary to be soul conscious to be love?
    That has no meaning.
    If I say, “yes. It is necessary.” Your mind will be satisfied for that is an expected answer, but you will be unfulfilled. You will not know where to start.
    Love is for you to experience, when it comes in your path. This is not something to “achieve” or to “practice.” Just be AWARE when that happens.

    That mentality of trying to “achieve” something spiritual or some virtue, is what needs to go away, for that very same “effort” to achieve is the greatest obstacle in experiencing it.
    WHY?

    You have already an idea of what love should be. You want to achieve your idea of love and not allow for love to manifest to you according to what you ARE now.

    As you pointed out, you cannot be equal to me, unless you had the same experiences.
    Thus, when BapDada tells his children to “make others similar to you,” he hasn’t been specific, so it is up to every child to figure that one out. Perhaps it just means to make a BK out of others. Maybe not.
    The potential for that phrase to be an ego-booster for every BK child is there, as most will believe that they are the “sample and the example,” (paraphrasing another BapDada’s phrase) for others to follow.

    A BK child needs that (Kudos from Kudha) to be able to follow his ascetic Life style.

    Similarly, BapDada gives a “goal” for the child to achieve: Be “equal to me.” (Bapsaman.)
    Even though, he knows that every BK child is “numberwise.”(According to gyan.)
    Some BKs believe that BapDada means to be “equal in his virtues,” but for most BapDada’s virtues are only seen on a video or when they go to Madhuban and see BapDada live.
    It is in a relationship, when you see someone in action, when you could appreciate those “virtues.” However, that is the experience of few BKs.

    That is why the BK system relies on what a Dadi says or a senior, as they may have greater experience with BapDada.
    Of course, this is second hand knowledge. To talk about how loving BapDada is, will not change the way a BK child is. This BK child will try to copy the particular loving “action” that someone else described. Just so this child could be called “loving.”
    Nevertheless, before the action (DOING) there is BEING.

    BapDada is love.
    A BK child may not be love, thus his actions even though the same as BapDada’s, will not make the BK child into Love.

    Consequently, what truly matters is to be AWARE of who we ARE at every moment rather than “making effort” to copy someone else’s actions.

    The Murli besides “giving gyan,” is meant to increase the BK follower self-esteem. It is meant to praise the BK child and to build his self-esteem, by making distinctions and separations; although it will increase the follower’s ego. But that is not bad at all, for ego only decreases once it has reached the utmost increase in size.
    As mentioned before, the BK system does an excellent job in that “increase,” that is why; it is an important journey of some seeker’s path. It was for me.

    For the common good.

      Thanks for your love. And thanks for the knowledge of ( No I ) No I also makes me think of the beginning of my existence 🤔😊I didn’t have a choice to exist was there something or entity who wanted me the No I to become an I and exist or did I exist by coincidence 🤔 I have seen enough of this beautiful world and If the repeat cycle is true then there is nothing Unlimited. (&nothing new) so my priority is not to exist ever.Lets hope I didn’t exist by coincidence 🤔😊

      Dear divine family,
      Om shanti.

      Let us go a bit deep into the topic – “Who am I” ?

      “A soul.”- is the answer. 🙂

      They say, “Pahale Khud ko jaano, baad mey Khudaa ko jaano.” (Know about yourself first, and only then you may be able to know about God.) And i see the logic in that statement. It is like – we have to first learn to stand on our own feet properly before we could learn/ perform a dance.

      Ok, Shrimat says that every kalpa repeats itself identically and even a minute/ small change can not happen in the drama script. This drama has repeated itself infinite number of times and its script is fixed second by second…. agreed? Any questions? 🙂

      Shrimat says, “The part of 84 births is recorded in the soul.”

      Every soul, every element, has its role/ roles predetermined in this eternal drama, is n’t it?

      Even though we do not know what would happen in the next moment, actually there are no surprises, drama follows the karma theory meticulously and each and every moment in the drama has a firm basis, a concrete reason to unfold the scenes in a particular way.

      According to shrimat – For ex: All my roles for a kalpa have already been fixed, each and every thought that triggers my words and actions are fixed, all my relations and friends of every birth in a kalpa are fixed irrespective of whether i am aware of them or not.

      It is like I the soul am a cassette in which all my roles are recorded and when i am placed in a cassette player (body), my words and actions get expressed. Without a cassette player (body), i am dormant, can not act, and only when i take up a body according to the time in the drama script, do the roles that i have to play ‘get played through me’.

      A cassette player can not take the credit of the songs that are being played through it as once the cassette is removed, the song stops. And the ‘cassette’ can not take the credit for the song that is being played from it as it was an ’empty cassette’ before the song was recorded on it. And only when it is placed in a cassette player and when it is switched on, will the songs be heard from the cassette. And the cassette can not change the songs/ speeches that are recorded in it on its own.

      In the same way, the soul will not be able to change its role or its sanskars which are pre – recorded; the sanskars keep changing only according to the drama script and is not based on the person ‘making effort’ or not making effort as there are factors from the past which also add to the happenings of the present moment. And even those past actions were the result of the predestined drama. That is the reason why we see some very intense effort makers, despite decades of practising Raja yoga, failing miserably and a few other people getting quick results for their efforts.

      In short – we the souls have no control over the roles that are being played through us. Our roles go through various experiences which take us through the eternal journey of constantly changing sanskars.

      In other words, “I” am mechanically performing the same actions which “I” performed every kalpa and and am reaping the same fruits that are destined to happen. Yes, many times it feels as if we have taken a particular decision after meditating a lot about it… But if each moment in the drama is fixed, how could I have ever taken a ‘decision’ based on ‘my own’ judgement? Every so called judgement is predestined!

      Whenever sakar Baba or Avyakt Baba was questioned about some senior BK leaving his/ her body ‘abruptly’, Baba used to give the same reply, “It is fixed in the drama, Baba can not change it.” If that is the case, (if Baba Himself can not change the destiny), how can we ever ‘change’ / ‘create’ our destiny by making or not making effort? Can the future/ drama be changed? Are n’t we performing actions accurately as is defined by the drama no matter what our intentions are??

      How can we label a particular ‘soul/person’ good / bad when all that the person is doing is just obeying the drama script, knowingly or unknowingly? Actually, it is the other way round, it is not that he/she is performing the actions, it is the actions that are being carried out through him/ her; he/she is just a medium. 🙂

      Shrimat says that Drama is benevolent. Baba, the Ocean of Knowledge, the Ocean of Love, says that He loves the Drama and that it is accurate.

      Our moral standards, principles, customs, traditions, beliefs, etc. change from place to place and from time to time. We can not take any given belief as the global or eternal standard; Drama does not follow, does not work on the basis of man made rules and his beliefs, Drama follows its own course.

      Though we may feel that we have made intense effort and have brought in certain changes… but in reality, those thoughts, the effort making, etc are all predetermined. Just sit back and check – are we ‘creating’ our thoughts, or, are they flowing through us spontaneously? Remember that those thoughts are the basis for our words and actions too. In the drama, it is not just the words and actions, even the thoughts which are the basis for them are predetermined.

      For a long time we were under the impression that we can ‘change’ our lives, we ‘create’ our thoughts, etc. Actually, it is the other way, the soul is an empty pot which holds all its roles and the roles get expressed through us irrespective of our approval or disapproval.

      Then who am “I”? I am a soul which has absolutely no control over its roles!

      I am just a conveyor. Then, the questions of being a very elevated soul or a less elevated soul, or creating my fortune by making effort do not arise.

      “Then what are we supposed to be doing?” – one may ask.

      Baba tells us again and again, “Children, be a detached observer and perform actions; drama is predestined and is eternal and it repeats itself accurately every kalpa.”

      Some incidents in the drama made me wonder initially as to why i was involved/ impressed by them till i understood the predetermined drama.

      In my case, in this present role, according to drama – my father wrote my horoscope in a book when i was 6,7 year old and kept it safely in his shelf. Sometimes he did tell me a couple of points like – i would become very wealthy and very spiritual, but did not reveal anymore details.

      i come from a lower middle class family and i was not at all religious, nor traditional, nor did i pursue any spiritual path till i was almost 40. So, at times i used to laugh whenever i remembered my father’s predictions.

      When i was in my college, i happened to meet an astrologer who gave me some important details of my future. i was fascinated by his predictions but still laughed at them; my circumstances, life style, etc were nowhere any close to his predictions, nor did i try to make any effort to attain the things that he predicted; and with the passing of time, i almost forgot the whole incident.

      But to my amazement, things just started to happen the way he told me, and i did marry a relative of mine as he predicted (who also came from a poor family), and i did become quite wealthy (by Indian standards) in a matter of few years as my husband got a very good job in an International organisation… .. but still, i was leading a very worldly life and was neither religious nor spiritual. Exactly as he predicted, my spiritual life started with a bang…i started to have visions of the angelic Brahma Baba in the year 1990 and eventually grew very close to him…In 1993 i happened to take the basic course… and then on my life has undergone enormous changes.

      These experiences coupled with some experiences of my friends and relatives made me understand that the drama is predetermined which takes its own course without any conscious effort from our side. We are like a puppet and the drama makes it happen through us.

      Brahma Baba also used to say that we are all bound by the drama including Shiv Baba.

      Shiv Baba tells many times that He will not interfere in any one’s karma. But some BKs with their old sanskars of bhakti keep repeating, “Do not worry, Baba will help you, Baba will take care of you, Baba will change your husbad, etc.” And we have seen Brahma Baba, Mamma, quite a few seniors of the past and present suffering a lot from some illness or the other. If it was Baba’s duty/ role to help his children, He would have helped all the souls who were suffering.

      Whatever we are going through at the moment is accurate and is beneficial..

      Understanding the drama is a very very important factor in the subject of Raja Yoga. Knowledge of Drama is not mentioned in any scripture other than shrimat. So, let us understand and use this knowledge and develop a clear vision.

      May you be knowledge-full and trikaldarshi and remain constantly happy and content by knowing every secret of the drama.

      The children who are knowledge-full and trikaldarshi can never become upset (naaraaz). Even if someone defames or insults them, they would still remain happy (raazi) because those who understand every secret (raaz) of the drama cannot become unhappy. It is those who do not know the secrets who become unhappy. Therefore, always have this awareness: if you are not happy having become a child of God, the Father, then, when would you be happy? Those who are happy and content now are close to the Father and equal to Him.

      Om shanti.

        Thank you for your article. It is very rational, convincing and it has your own experience in it to support your words. If you go deeper, you may see that even though you say “we” are conveyors or detached observers (As Baba said,) there is nothing to call “we.” There is the Drama and that “we” or “I” is part of it, not separated. The drop of water of the Ocean is not separated from the Ocean unless consciousness of that separation exists. In “reality” there is no drop of water. That is just a human perception.
        Therefore, “we” already ARE what “we” ARE looking to achieve through spirituality, tapasya, rituals, pujas, etc. It is just that “we” are not CONSCIOUS of it.
        That is the journey. From sleepiness to awaken-ness.
        Until consciousness IS, we only have beliefs. “We” ARE not what we understand. thus, what is the utility of mental understanding of “spiritual” things?
        Just to inspire. :-). I will post your article next Tuesday, before going on vacation on the 8th.

          Dear Avyakt 7 NG, yes, an ocean is not created by adding drops of water, it has been existing eternally as one entity whether or not new drops of water got added to it from rains and rivers. There are many drops of water, but still, it is one ocean.

          That sounds good as far as the ocean is concerned. But, we the poor souls are subjected to various pleasant and unpleasant experiences in life.. that does not look fair or lucrative. 🙂

          Got your point, since all the ‘drops of water’ / souls are participants of one single drama called LIFE, we do not need to ‘work’ for achieving something or becoming something. The drama will automatically take us through various stages, and one day we may touch the “NO I” stage and then again slowly run into the “I” stage in the cycle of LIFE.

          Whatever you may say, brother, life has not been that enjoyable these days for me.. 🙂

          Funny drama, this one has no ‘delete’ button nor ‘fast forward’ button. And these churnings make me crazier. 😦

          But there are some nice points too to feel nice about the drama though … i do not need to toil, do not need to achieve any thing; instead, ‘success’ will come to me on its own. 🙂

          [“What is success?” – Being happy all the time. 🙂 ]

          I know, some people may ask me whether i want to be an escapist and/ or lead a life of laziness and carelessness. But actually, if i really, completely believe in whatever i have shared till now, i could lead a very carefree life… i am still in the process of convincing my mind in different situations where i am at the ‘receiving end’. 🙂

          Will share those things in another mail.

          Thanks.

          From a message on internet:

          Drama & our roles

          New York is 3 hours ahead of California, but it does not make California slow.

          Someone graduated at the age of 22, but waited 5 years before securing a good job!

          Someone became a CEO at 25, and died at 50.

          While another became a CEO at 50, and lived to 90 years.

          Obama retires at 55, but Trump starts at 70.

          Absolutely everyone in this world works based on their Time Zone.

          People around you might seem to go ahead of you, some might seem to be behind you.

          But everyone is running their own RACE, in their own TIME.

          Don’t envy them or mock them.

          They are in their TIME ZONE, and you are in yours!

          Life is about waiting for the right moment to act.

          So, RELAX.

          You’re not LATE.

          You’re not EARLY.

          You are very much ON TIME, and in your TIME ZONE Destiny sets up for you.

          In conclusion, don’t rush to get and don’t be sad if things turn out to be slow.

          God makes all things beautiful in His time.

          Stay blessed!!!!

              Hi Joseph, it’s nice to know that there are few more souls like you who don’t want to exist ever, I too thought same after experiencing momentary “No-I”, but Ahnanda has advised me to find and confirm few things, he neither agrees nor he disagrees.

              And regarding which role you get in the drama is mostly decided by the “efforts” you make according to Srimat of BKs, but those efforts are also predestined, basically you are not the “doer” MAY BE only an experience. Things are happening when you have the idea of “Doing” efforts, and NOTHING is happening if you are “NO-I”. But Drama is happening 🙂 Om shanti 🙂

                Sweet brother as you say the role I get depends on the effort I make.🤔My effort also is based on the role I get.also remember I came into existence as a pure unbiased soul If I was given a role of 84 births my efforts would be different than if I am given one birth and the family I’m born in.My saying “Wah drama ” as bk gyan tells us is meaningless as the drama doesn’t have a writer.When my role is enjoyable my gratitude goes to the director and script writer of the DRAMA.😊😊😊

                  Dear Joseph, the knowledge of drama as thought in BK gyan is to bring the “No-Mind” to some extent, not completely though. There is one article by Ahnanda on this page on the same topic.

                  But let me ask you one question, did u not exist even before coming into existence, in the point of light form in the supreme abode, I think by exixtence you only mean the drama existing on earth, existence is beyond and unbounded, they have a lesson on three worlds shown within the boundary of egg shaped structure, is there anything beyond the boundary that they have shown!!

                  Well bro I am seeker now, I thought I have got that what I wanted with BKs, so seeking, what am I seeking, don’t know! perhaps enhancement of spiritual experiences 🙂
                  Om shanti 🙂
                  But just a suggestion, I used to debate a lot with people for topics on spirituality but that is just to prove your Ego higher than other person, so I don’t encourage debates for myself now 🙂

                  Dear divine family,
                  Om shanti.

                  The other day, some one brought up the topic of ‘making effort’ / purusharth. Here are some points. Please share your experiences too. 🙂

                  What effort do we have to make?

                  A. Slowing down thoughts?

                  Some feel that we have to slow down our thoughts so that we could experience a higher level of consciousness.

                  Can we really slowdown our thoughts consciously? NO.

                  The speed and quality of our thoughts are based SOLELY on our current level of consciousness. And the level of consciousness can not be changed by ‘preaching’ the mind, or following certain disciplines, or by leading a disciplined life; our consciousness is quite subtle and can not be influenced by physical actions or moral teachings. It undergoes changes by going through certain deep experiences and realisations. Intellectual understanding of things alone can not change our consciousness.

                  When we check ourselves, we notice that we do not need to make any effort to ‘create thoughts’, but ‘ready made’ thoughts pass through our minds. 🙂

                  In other words, thoughts ‘get created’ / formed before they ‘enter’ the mind of the ROLE played through the soul. 🙂

                  Yes, sometimes we focus on our thoughts and try to ‘create’ new ones by using certain logic and ultimately get satisfied when we arrive at some decision/ thought. And from then on, again, we find the thoughts ‘flowing through our minds’ without us making any effort to create them or by observing them.

                  When we analyze the process, we realise that whatever ‘logic’ we have used for a few minutes to channelise our thoughts, it was also TOTALLY based on our level of consciousness.

                  And the so called ‘channelisation of thoughts’ using some sort of logic also had happened ‘spontaneously’ based on our level of consciousness and the ONLY extra component that was present in our ‘logical thinking’ was that we were conscious of the thoughts that were flowing through our mind. 🙂 The thoughts that flow through the mind/ soul are all PREDETERMINED in this predetermined drama.

                  How to do service with the mind?

                  Whatever level of consciousness we possess at any given point in time has its own level of vibrations. They spread in the atmosphere based on their capacity and intensity.

                  When we give sakash to any particular person, we are channelising / focusing our vibrations to that soul/ person. That is how the other person receives it more than anyone else and can even experience receiving the sakash. We can give sakash to many people too, but how much we could serve through the mind depends on the LEVEL / capacity of our consciousness.

                  The power of sakash does not depend on our desire to serve, nor on the pressure that we may apply on our mind to serve the world; but it depends on our stage, the level of our consciousness.

                  I had the opportunity to meet some senior BKs who could give us the experience of bodiless stage just by glancing at us even when they were doing some physical work. But quite a few of us have to prepare ourselves, get ready to stabilise our mind, be silent, then focus on some one, in order to give drishti/ sakash. 🙂

                  Can we bring changes in others and in the self by doing service with the mind (through manasaa seva)?

                  As explained earlier, our thoughts, words, and actions depend on the level of our consciousness at any given time. When a change occurs in the consciousness, there will certainly be a change in our thoughts, words, and actions. But it is not vice – versa. That is, of course we can not change our thoughts, they are ‘ready-made’, but by trying to change our words and actions we can not change the consciousness.

                  For example – we see some people who adhere strictly to their own religious beliefs, preach very good things everyday to students/ followers, lead a very pious life; but their sanskars remain the same even after many years of following a spiritual path. Why is it so? 🙂

                  Doing things can not change one’s sanskars or consciousness.

                  They may be very ardent lovers of GOD, but their love is exclusively reserved for God (and not for co human-beings) because they hope and believe that God would appreciate and acknowledge their love for Him and would help them in their hour of need.

                  And even teaching and preaching spirituality is done to attain blessings from God (thinking God would be happy with his/her ‘altruistic’ service), and also that they would get respect and adoration from the students/ followers.

                  But when we watch their behaviour, we notice that they continue to compete with others, get jealous, angry, arrogant, harsh, etc. even after many years of leading a spiritual life.

                  So, in spite of ‘doing’ so much Godly service and leading a rigorous religious life, performing very good actions, one’s consciousness does not change until and unless that person goes through a series of experiences and realises and understands the change that is needed in him. This could take a few months, years, or a life time.

                  Will continue on some more points in my next mail.

                  Please share your thoughts and experiences too.

                  best wishes & regards,
                  Gayathri ben.

        Really nice and wonderful explanation sister 🙂
        I recently became an OSHO lover, you might have heard about him, and I have mentioned him many times here on this blog, not for promoting him, but the closeness which you have felt for Brama Baba, I am currently feeling that for Master Osho, Rajneesh.

        There is one lecture of him on “Witnessing”, where he explains that the day he was completely out of the body, he could witness this world as a mare “DRAMA” and nothing else. Well, a lot of problems from psychological prospective are gone from my life because of just this one understanding that “DRAMA is there, but “I” am not there, and when “I” am there, DRAMA is not there”. Thanks to Ahnanda too 🙂

    Lust is the greatest enemy 

    Please take a look at this link:
    http://www.holy-bhagavad-gita.org/chapter/3/verse/37

    Supposedly, it is a translation of the Bhagavad-Gita. One of the “holy scriptures” of Indian origin.
    There, it is explained that lust is not only “sex-lust” but it broadens to another word “desire” which is then explained as the interplay of greed and anger.

    Confusion is apparent.
    Someone who merely acts by following words, will not understand the meaning of what those words are pointing out.
    As a consequence, “desire” has been labeled as “bad” in many religions:  “Desire is the cause of Suffering”  has been said.

    Full of words, we are unable to grasp anything but confusion.

    The Brahma Kumaris Murli points out: “Lust is the greatest enemy. From the beginning to middle to the end.” But then, the new word “sex-lust” appeared in Murlis as to become specific of the type of lust.

    In turn, that statement has labeled sex as something “bad,” “sinful.”
    That is their perspective.

    Sex is not sinful or bad. The people involved in it, make sex into something enjoyable, blissful or something to be ashamed of.

    That is the importance of understanding BEING rather than DOING.
    In a “beginner’s consciousness,” actions are considered “good” or “bad.” Nevertheless, the BEING of the one performing the actions is not considered at all.

    Sex, more than any other activity will manifest this clearly.
    Most individuals do not know of the benefits of sexual energy. Sex is for them, an outlet to their violence, triggered by nature’s impulse to reproduce. Greed and anger are manifested through human sexuality.

    As explained in a previous article, when dealing with masses of people, it is easier to express ideas in a “black or white” fashion.
    Sex is “bad.” End of report. That is a commandment for all followers.

    Although most followers will fall into the category of expressing anger and greed through sex; it does not mean that this is a license to generalize and belittle human sexuality.

    There are those who will defend sex, not because they have experienced well-being and renewal through this energy, but because it is a readily available outlet to express their violence, greed and anger masked in the experience of pleasure with the payoff of lower vitality (through constant ejaculation aka orgasms.)
    That interplay is what makes sex so complex. It is a layer of pleasure having underneath other emotional layers, with the potential of loss of vitality for most.

    Observe your impulses. Observe the energy behind them, the feelings. That awareness will bring a different perspective.

    “Sex-lust is the greatest enemy.” How do you “conquer” it? The yogi will put his “will-power” or “yoga power” to overcome it.

    That is a never-ending fight within.

    Enemies and friends are the duality that fogs the mind. There is no conquering, there is only full understanding, acknowledgement.
    When sex-lust is neither a friend nor an enemy, we could observe it, learn from it, accept it and let it go.

    Have we observed that everything that we accept in our Life as “ours,” will go away in time? If we don’t reject it neither accept it, it is not “ours.”
    Not being ours, we are free of it.
    A mind that is not trapped in the duality of accepting and rejecting is an empty mind, free, open.
    Love is there. Paradoxically, Love is not of the mind.
    When there is Love, there is no Lust.

    For the common good.

    The world of Maya 

    As humans have different consciousness and ranges of experiences, there cannot be an item that could be labeled as the “truth,” for that depends on our predestined perception.
    This is very important to understand at least at the intellectual level.

    Observe that many times you may be well and smiling and then, some thought will appear, some sensation will invade you and will change that “sunny day,” into thunderstorms.
    The mind will believe the contrast and identify with the experience. While we walk around with a rainy cloud, everyone else around us seems to be living a sunshine.

    Nevertheless, we fail to realize that sunshine or a cloudy day are fleeting experiences, complementary of each other and we rather live the perception, that this is “Me.”

    Maya is “Illusion.” The Brahma Kumaris uses this word to signify anything that is not what Brahma Kumaris perceives as “what should be.”

    Did you wake up late for Amrit Vela? It wasn’t you. It was Maya making it happen.
    Didn’t you follow a particular “code of conduct”? You are full of Maya.
    “The world is an illusion” it is said, and what is “real” is what the Brahma Kumaris says it is.
    Thus, the “Godly side” is created to contrast the “Maya side.”

    While Christianity uses Satan, Lucifer as the nemesis of God; Brahma Kumaris uses “Maya.”

    The contrast is necessary to “shape up” followers into a particular side. Nevertheless, that seemingly opposition does not exist. Yes… we may say it is an “illusion.”

    God is complementary of Satan or Maya. One cannot live without the other.

    We are living in perceptions according to our consciousness. We could say “reality” itself is an illusion and every “Illusion” is a reality.

    Truly “Maya” is a tool for teaching purposes.
    In a “eternally predestined Drama,” as every Brahma Kumaris follower “knows,” what could be an “illusion”?

    Waking up from “illusions,” is like waking up from a dream. We just go into a different “reality.”
    But while the dream was on, that was “real.”

    Therefore, do we want to find out what is the “real” reality, the “truth”?
    If your answer is “yes,” you have not understood this writing.
    If your answer is “no,” there is no understanding of the above.
    If you don’t answer, you may have understood… but perhaps, you may need for the question to be repeated again… Only you know.
    The question does not matter a bit.
    It all comes down to the experience.
    As you perceive your experience, so it will be your “reality.”

    There is no need to change your perception for a “good one.” There is no need to make the effort to change your sensation of depression into a fake smile.
    Just observe how fleeting your sensations are. Observe how easily we identify with a particular state of being.
    Equanimity is in that observation. There is no “Maya” there nor “reality.” That is “limbo.”

    Christians invented limbo when they realized that “reality” cannot be “black or white” only.
    The Brahma Kumaris’ murli will pinpoint to some “exceptions” of the typical “black and white” world; nevertheless; usually ignored by followers.

    When a religion is dealing with masses of people, who has the time to dwell into every possible exception?
    Thus, a “black and white” world will fit the bill. Although that is an “illusion,” (Maya) it could be made “real.”

    For the common good.

      Dear divine family,
      Om shanti.

      Recently some one asked me about how to develop a clear consciousness, whether we need to practise something to get it; and the process of self transformation – whether it happens first in the consciousness, mind, in the intellect, or in the actions…

      In this eternal journey of the soul, there are periods when the soul experiences a clean and clear consciousness; and there are periods when it experiences an impure/ dirty consciousness, in other words, a consciousness tainted by ‘vices’. It is tough to say in a cyclic time whether it was the egg or the chicken that came first… but we all know that the chicken can lay eggs and and that the eggs can become chicks. 🙂

      In the same way, in this eternal drama, in the eternal journey, the soul experiences both the shades of pure and impure consciousness, and this can not be avoided. So, let us accept our consciousness as it is at any given moment and not inflict any ‘punishment’ on us simply because we find our consciousness to be not so pure or not the way we want it to be.

      Can we grow ten years older in ONE day? Why not? Why can’t we achieve that feat through intense effort? Can we bring in Satyug today through intense Yoga? In the same way, the eternal and predestined drama takes its own course and everything happens only at the destined time.

      There is no practice needed for changing the consciousness; it will change only when it has to. For ex: most of us would have come across people who will not budge to any loving suggestion, external pressure, explanations, threats, etc for a long time but on one fine morning they change their attitude suddenly through some realisation. Our efforts in the past also might have contributed to that, but unless and until there is some kind of realisation (through some pleasant, or unpleasant experience), the transformation does not take place.

      We meet people who may be very religious and devotional, but in their day to day life they might behave ruthlessly, arrogantly, and selfishly. Why is it that their regular spiritual and religious practices did not change their consciousness?

      It is because, the teachings had only touched their intellects but not their hearts. When the heart receives the message, that is, when they do not merely understand something intellectually but also start feeling it, does the consciousness change.

      Can performing good actions change our consciousness?
      Many people do charity in a big way, but when we notice the reason for their charity, it could be for things like –

      By doing some charitable work, people would respect me, praise me.
      By doing charity, God blesses me, hope He would remember what all I have done. 🙂
      Some people even narrate to God what all good things they have done so as to make sure that He had heard it and would pay back multi-fold.
      Some narrate about their charity to all their friends in great detail, but to conceal their ego, at the end they say that they are just doing Godly service and it is He who is getting the service done through them. :-).
      Some do charity because they believe in the Karma theory and feel very satisfied whenever they do some service as they feel that they would certainly reap the fruits of their service.

      For them, doing service is a sure way of accumulating for their future hence they would not hesitate to ‘invest’ their energies, time, and money for receiving more and more. They somewhat follow the ‘barter system’.

      Some do service for getting a high status in the future births.
      Some do service so as to enable themselves to get some position, recognition, and power in the present life.

      If any of the above mentioned motives are the basis for ‘performing good actions’ (doing service), no matter how many years one may lead a spiritual life, their consciousness would not change. This answers the question whether our consciousness can change by performing good actions.

      The very first pure soul, Sri Krishna also would go through changes in his consciousness and would be the first one to fall into vices. This process can not be stopped by making effort. Again it will take him 63 births to come out completely clean; the transformation can not be ‘fast forwarded’.

      So, let us first accept ourselves as we are, have love and regard for the self, accept the fact that inevitably we have to pass through all these experiences. Forcing the self to ‘become pure’, getting depressed for not seeing any progress in the self, feeling guilty, etc , will not help us in any way.

      Let us just be honest with ourselves, honest with God, and take every day as it comes.

      Will take up a few other points later on.

      best wishes and regards,
      Gayathri ben.

    Bridging opposite beliefs 

    Intellectual debates about “truth,” “righteousness,” “God,” and so on are USELESS. Avyakt7 has done his share on that in the past. However, if you feel compelled to debate, by all means DO IT. Reinvent the wheel.
    What matters is consciousness and that is not changed a bit by intellectual talks.
    If someone is convinced by an argument, it does not mean that this person has a new consciousness. “Compassion” in a person is not there because he was convinced through an argument. Openness to Life will not be part of  our consciousness unless we abandon the conditioning of the mind.

    The above is not a recipe for “success.” It is merely a general observation.  Just as we have arrived at this point in time with heavily conditioned minds, the opposite will happen as well: De-conditioning.
    There is nothing to DO, but just to OBSERVE that is happening and that every time we rely on the mind to be the driver of our lives, we can only drive through the lanes of conditioning.

    Once we embrace a particular religious group in search of God, truth, righteousness, purity, etc. we will contrast society’s ways with our current religious conditioning. There will be antagonism. That is why, every religious group, political party or “chosen one” group believes to be “better” than anyone else. 
    The mind creates that contrast based on ideals of what “should be right.”

    Life does not have a moral value of what is “good or bad.”
    That is  only a necessary human invention to live in society.
    Life offers experiences to be experienced and those arrive through their full range, which will be experimented at particular times. 

    Today I may be a criminal. I am not saying that this is “right or wrong.” I am saying that “I” will experience the consequences of that role just to change to the opposite, a “saint” or whatever other “good” label, opposite to “criminal” we could think of.
    On the same token, a “saint” now is on his way to become a sinner, if that wasn’t part of his experience before. Our society has taught us to judge others, because we believe in a law, protocol or moral value, above the reality of change. A person should conform to that value, if that person deviates then a label to condemn that person will be used. Behind that label, there is a strong feeling of disapproval or even disgust.

    Please OBSERVE that Life offers a range of experiences. Humans on the other hand are caught up with the “limited” version of that: You are a criminal now, a convict, you are “evil.” But… I am “good.” Be like “ME.”

    I am not saying that to be a “criminal” is “good.” Avyakt7-NG is stating that good and evil are limited human perspectives. “Yin and Yang” are labels for 2 opposite but complementary forces which work together to make changes in the Universe. 

    That is why, there cannot be “God” without a “Devil.” There cannot be a “theist,” without an “atheist.” It is through their apparent conflict how changes happen in the world.

    What we label as “bad”  is a necessary experience for the one experiencing, so it is “good” as well: Someone may be suffering a disease. Through that experience, there will be learning. There will be change. That experience will not last forever. That person has the capacity to go through that particular experience. From that experience we could learn to reach out for help. We could learn that our health is precious. We could learn to feel the support of our loved ones practically. We could learn that once the experience is over, the medicine will magically appear, perhaps through ways that we had rejected in the past (i.e: oriental medicine vs traditional “take a pill” medicine.)
    It is that experience the one that will open up our consciousness.  In Life, “to learn” means to “open up” and not to understand intellectually.

    That openness will make us “good” without following books, philosophies or religious teachings. 

    But if we remain conditioned, then all we can DO is to compare ourselves with others. The “poor me,” syndrome will appear and with that lack of self- esteem.
    We may think: “That is “bad.” I shouldn’t have low self-esteem.”
    That is a limited perception.
    In the “unlimited,” low self-esteem will bring the movement into the experience of a higher self-esteem. That is the range of experiences. So, why pick a moment of the whole experience to label it as “good or bad”? 

    Our mental conditioning will keep on telling us that “this shouldn’t be, this shouldn’t happen to ME,” etc.
    That will prompt the “atheist” to look for a “God.” Suffering does it every time.
    The inflated ego needs to deflate. That is the range of experiences.
    Is to have an inflated ego, good or bad?  That is a silly question. That is just part of the whole experience.

    Life is to be Enjoyed according to our consciousness. But if this experience of living Life is not enjoyable; then we are taking ourselves too seriously.
    Relax. It is time to laugh at this “I.” The “worst” that could happen to the “I” is to die… and that may not be “bad at all.”  Death will happen anyway… so why not enjoy while “I” am AWARE of MYSELF.
    That will bring “good karma,” and others will feel “good” around ME.
    Isn’t that what “God” and the “atheist” alike want? That is what  a “theist” and “atheist” have in common. That is the bridge to their differences.

    For the common good.

      Fantastic Avyakt7-NG. Right now I’m going through the experience of low self-esteem. Inspite of knowing that this present experience will take me to the experience of high self-esteem still I feel inside that what is happening to me now shouldn’t happen to ME. I’m feeling that whole world is against me. Off-late I’m getting thoughts of committing suicide. I guess I’m not yet ready for openness to Life. Anyway Drama will take care of everything.
      Thank you.

    Worship “reasoning” to find “truth.” 

    If we could experience that our consciousness will give us a particular experience, then it will be very hard to pinpoint something as the “truth.”
    “Reason” is only a methodology to grasp certainty at the mental level. Reason is very superficial when we are dealing with the depth of Life. Nevertheless, most individuals rely on “reason” as the standard to find “truth,” what is “right.”

    Religions such as Brahma Kumaris and Christianity, have built their “truth” based on follower’s interpretations of experiences lived by their religious founders.
    The “Holy Bible” and the BK Murli are examples of that. They can only convey a particular perspective from a certain consciousness.

    If someone uses “rationality” to explore the Bible of the Murli, pretty soon there will be certain items which do not fit the rational standard.
    Then, their messages are discarded as “irrational.”
    We could argue all we want about the “truth” behind the Bible or the BK Murli. It is a very good mind exercise and nothing else.

    The Bible and the BK Murli are not meant to be dissected with rationality. They are meant to be followed, believed, respected. Those documents become the center stage, the source of authority to replace a missing presence of a God.
    “Blind faith” is required to go fully into their path.

    Unfortunately, this great opportunity to awaken to different kind of realities, doesn’t bring that benefit most of the time; but rather a “hard-nosed” follower who believes to have the “truth” or the chance to control followers for different purposes not related with inner-exploration.

    Going through the experience of whatever label/religion we believe to BE, is what will bring change in the individual.

    Whenever we embrace something like a religion or lack of it (atheist,) we will position ourselves at the starting point of our search in Life. The complete experience will be, once we reject that which we embraced at the beginning. That is the way of duality.
    This is not a mental agreement and then a rejection. Your whole BEING will be in it.

    BEING caught up in the existence of a God or lack of it, is of no consequence to change of consciousness and as such, to the possibility to self-realize.

    Once the search for God is over, there is no-God. But once no-God is embraced, then there must be God. That is the game of duality.
    Beyond that game, there is “I,” self.
    That is where the search may finish until we find “no-I.”

    Then, the search is over for there is nothing to search for a “nobody.”

    Yes. It is hard to understand. It is no rational. Thus, it is nonsense.
    The mind is caught up with itself.
    There are no “holy scriptures” or beliefs or lack of them that could take a person into the openness which is necessary to feel fulfilled in Life.

    Living Life experiences will do that. However, since those are too frequent, we dismiss their value. We are not awoken to OBSERVE the movements of Life and consciousness.
    We rather have a mental story in our minds backed up by rationality or lack of, to believe in.

    We are so “happy” by seeing pictures of a meal, rather than experiencing the meal itself. We try to search on how to quench our thirst, what is the “true method,” to do that rather than having the experience of drinking.

    Paradoxically, if you embrace thirst, satiation of thirst will follow… but then after that, thirst will be experienced again. How to get rid of thirst?
    By not making it into a “rational problem.”

    For the common good.

    Your consciousness dictates your “God.” 

    I’d like to clarify my previous article. Avyakt7 NG will not go into the question: Does God really exist? Sometimes, I will insinuate “yes,” but at other times, “no.”

    It is not a matter of “yes” or “no” and then a line of believers and non-believers aligned with their belief. No!
    I shared before that “truth” doesn’t matter a bit. What matters is consciousness.
    When I say “truth,” I refer to the stories and beliefs that every religion has about their gods, origins, salvation, etc. and as a consequence, the existence of the stories of the “deniers” of god, labeled as “atheists;” and the ones in the middle ground, labeled as “agnostics,” as well as the “scientists” searching for “evidence.”
    All of that search of “truth” means quite a bit for humans trapped in their minds. Their “truth” is what these individuals are willing to defend, debate with others, convince others, recruit others and even put their lives at risk. That will give them a “reason” to exist.

    Reality is, it is all about them, the “I.”
    The main ego booster statement is :“I” have the “truth”.                                                                                                             Avyakt7-NG only shares his experiences. Avyakt7-NG has already  fully gone through the experience of finding “God,” finding the “truth” and also their opposites. Avyakt7-NG “knows” and because of that, he must let every reader walk through the path themselves. 

    Once we abandon that childish egocentric idea of “truth;” we can observe that our experiences will shape our consciousness and that in return, our perceptions.

    There are many humans suffering in the world. Suffering is part of living. It is part of “growing up” in consciousness. Suffering is also relative: A kid without much to eat and without a good hygiene in India, may not feel that “experience” as suffering, as a kid from the USA that is put into that Indian setting.

    So many “well to do” people living in “first world countries,” may experience other types of suffering: Emotional, immune related diseases, mental issues, etc.  as a consequence of their separation from Nature, which the same Indian kid may never know about.

    It is that suffering the one that will prompt for a solution. A seeker is born.
    God will bring hope to a person. Many experiences will be linked to “God.” In an apparent “insecure” world, where anything could happen; “God” brings that security; the seeker will feel safe under his “protection.” Even though, he may be experiencing “hardships,” the seeker knows that God is with him.

    God is necessary, for he will bring hope to many, a turning point in many lives.
    All sorts of religions are available for this experience.
    Let me repeat one more time: Whether “you” are in the only “truthful” religion or not;  it does not matter a bit.
    What matters in Life is the experience that this seeker will be going through, for that will change the consciousness of that person.

    Why consciousness is so important?
    Because according to our consciousness, we could perceive Life experiences under different lenses. thus, what is the “truth”?
    For most people, Life is a struggle. A fight at many levels. In another consciousness, Life is to be enjoyed, relaxed. Nothing to “prove.”

    Many want the later consciousness, but it doesn’t happen because “I want” or because “I bought a  spiritual book” or “I followed a guru.” That consciousness will happen as a natural consequence of having experienced other types of consciousness: When there is a saturation of “I” then, a lack of that “I” is what comes naturally next.
    Life has its own ways, for that. It may not be necessarily in this life time, but rest assured that nothing happens through randomness. “You” are not forgotten.
    Everything that occurs in Life is meant to BE.  A Brahma Kumaris follower is aware of this.  
    The “I” struggles to fight against that. So, Do I recommend not to fight?
    No. I recommend to observe in ourselves why fighting IS.

    Our consciousness will dictate our “truth.”

    For the common good.

    Question: Buddha seeing ShivBaba in his meditation? 

    In the second lesson when they give the introduction of the father (Shiv Baba), they associate Gautam Bhudda and Mahavira as well in that lesson, claiming that they witnessed Shiv baba in their meditation, especially about Gautam Bhudda. Now my exploration of Bhuddism says that either Bhudda never spoke about God or he spoke just once or twice about God. He never claimed to find God or witness God in his meditation. Can you please share your view point on this thing and comment on Gautam Bhudda’s view on God as well. 

    Thank you for your question.
    I’d recommend not to get caught up in what some say that someone else said.
    To do this, is to only get meaningless intellectual answers based on beliefs or debates or “authoritative” answers, which are of no help at all.

    I will share my own experience instead.
    The word “God” has many meanings. I am not talking about definitions or concepts. Beyond that, there are experiences which are different from one individual to another.

    These “chosen ones” or more likely their followers, didn’t want to leave things as they ARE, unique experiences in Life; but yet they were concerned in having the “truth.” All sorts of arguments could be made for this purpose, which do not matter at all.

    When you discover that you ARE not, that there is no “static thing” defining “you” but only words; labels… what would be God then?

    A definition? A label such as “shiv baba” or “yehova,” etc?

    When “you” ARE nothing, “you” are everything. Why?
    Because you are not, but you are. This is no logic. Language cannot put that to be intellectually understood.
    Isn’t God included in your nothingness? Aren’t you the “image” of God?
    Sai Baba said: “ I am God and so are you. The difference is that I am aware and you are not.”
    This could be fully “understood” when “you” are aware of that nothingness. When that is not part of your awareness, then misinterpretation will occur:” Yeah, and the criminal is God and so the dog and the cat…. Nonsense!”

    Buddha was aware of his nothingness. How could he describe “God” through words? Perhaps by saying “God is everything and is everywhere?”
    Then, someone caught up with the “I” will say, “That is nonsense. God is only one.”
    Although… Everyone has his own experience and belief of “Him.”

    “God is light.” It is said. So he is darkness as well, for there is only light when there is darkness.  They are together. He is EVERYTHING.

    “God is a soul. The Supreme soul.”
    What is a soul? A container of Emptiness. Nothingness. The Buddha discovered that. God IS the supreme nothingness and because of that, the supreme Everything-ness.

    Does it make sense?
    Perhaps that is why the Buddha wisely, chose not to speak about it.

    When we are trapped in the “I,” we believe that God has to be another “I” different than MINE.
    When we are trapped in the “I” we believe that “we” are the only ones existing. If something supernatural occurs, it must be “god.”
    Trapped in the “I” we are ignorant that there are many types of beings physical and non-physical. Our experience with a particular one will make our “god.”

    Therefore, what is the point of Buddha seeing Shiv Baba in his meditation?
    It means absolutely nothing, other than propaganda for a belief system.

    What matters is to discover who you ARE.
    Once you discover that, you will discover the problems of putting that into human language and the misunderstandings that such attempts will bring.

    I found is better to say nothing, unless someone is ready to understand when you say something. That goes with “God” as well.

    For the common good.

      Thanks a lot, Ahnanda, for taking up my question and helping me to move towards experience rather than just words.
      But honestly, to be No-I is the most difficult thing one can try for! I observe that you have spoken about the No-I, “You are not there”, “still you are there” in all of the answers for my questions, not just those questions but in your articles too. I observe these experiences but the moment I stop observing, the mind and Ego comes back within no time.
      And you know most of the people, just like I did, want a God just to reduce sorrow in their life. But in my case the sorrow and all the suffering that was there before and after being a God believer was same. So I needed No-God stuff. well, the drama has its own way to take me ahead. Thanks again Ahnanda 🙂 Om Shanti 🙂

        “No-I” is not something to “try” to “make effort,” it happens when your time has arrived.
        Until then, enjoy the intricacies of the “I,” observe it, learn from it, BE it. There is no rush, as the Drama will present the doors at the right time…. when we are ready to open them. No before, no after, but at the right time… Wah Drama, wah!

    Misunderstood points in gyan: Numberwise 

    I will start a little series labeled as: Misunderstood points in gyan.
    The purpose is to look at the same Murli point from a distinct perspective. This is necessary to have a deeper understanding of Brahma Kumaris gyan. Otherwise, a limited understanding means misinterpretation for Life and the Universe are greater than a particular perspective of a religion or ideology.

    The typical way “numberwise” is interpreted in Brahma Kumaris is as follows: Every “soul” has a particular capacity, when compared with others, that will give a “soul” a particular ordinal number, a “ranking.”

    In Brahma Kumaris, the most celebrated capacity is labeled as “purity.”
    Therefore, Brahma Baba (founder) is considered number “1” in purity. As a consequence, Brahma Baba will be the first emperor of the “Golden age.” (Narayan I- Krishna.)
    That is the belief.

    In Brahma Kumaris, it is known that because Brahma Baba is the “first pure soul,” he will also be the “first impure.”

    Note that the knowledge of polarity and duality is within that simple affirmation.
    However, the “churning” will stop there, as it is convenient to demonstrate to a follower, the importance of “making effort” to become “number 1,” or rather close to that number.

    As it is said in Brahma Kumaris: “Position 1 and 2 are already taken (Brahma Baba and Mama who will be Krishna and Radhe respectively) but the other numbers are available…”

    That affirmation gave place to infantile games: The top 8 souls. Who is number 3, 4,5,6,7,8?
    “Those souls will not get much “punishment” at the end,” it is said. “Punishment” is important for religions targeting beginners, in their seeking journey.
    Those souls will be Narayan 3 to 8 in the Golden Age.
    All of that is only entertainment for the mind, childish games and a little push for the ego to “become one of them.” It is easier to say “become #1” but this is not a matter of DOING things but on BEING it (embodiment) and that depends on where the individual is positioned, in his range of experiences in the cycle of time.

    Of course, 8 was expanded to 16, 108, 1024, etc. the popular “rosary of victorious souls.”

    In Life, numbers are non-existent. Thus, “Numberwise” cannot be. A “ranking” is a human belief which does not apply to Life. It is merely a “teaching tool” to give a mental carrot to a donkey, who is eager to become SOMEONE.

    Observe that the “purity” of Brahma Kumaris “souls” are in direct proportion to their impurity. Following the belief, there cannot be a more impure soul than a Brahma Kumaris follower. 

    We can also discover that by following the BK belief, Brahma Baba started the impure world, followed by BKs.
    Why is the world “impure”? Because of BKs.
    The “tamopradhan world” is the creation of BKs.
    If this article is understood in its extent, it will be obvious to observe that anything that we believe to BE (pure, compassionate, angelic, etc.) it is certain that we have been or will be the opposite as well (impure, violent, evil, etc.) This is how the feeling of guilt started in our society. We want to pick one side of a coin only, knowing that it has 2.

    In other words, there is the contrast in Life. There is duality; but there is no “numberwise.” That is a BK creation, which is necessary to enhance the sense of being “special;” but that is a necessary enhancing ego trip, to dissolve it.

    For the common good.

      It seems accusing your blog has worked! 🙂 🙂 In the mean time i have forgotten what i wanted to say. 😦

      Yes, i had those experiences too.. i was unaware of what was happening inside me ( the ‘spiritual’ ego building up) till i met a few people who were a sort of down to earth and who did better than I did while facing certain situations…. a revelation for me.

      Yes, the “I” is quite deceptive.

      Can i share a joke here? 🙂 My brother is a doctor and most of his close friends are doctors from the same hospital and i ‘know’ many of them. One day, while chatting with me, he was describing a friend as an ‘Eye specialist’. Later on, i realised that that particular person was an Engineer by profession.. and i got confused as to why my brother was calling him an ‘Eye specialist’. Then my dear brother explained to me that that Engineer friend has a lot of EGO hence is called an “I”- specialist.

      Gayathri ben.
