Senior advice in BK

To give advice to someone is very tricky business. As a matter of fact, if you are concerned about “your karma,” and not “opening more karmic accounts”; this item of not giving advice to someone becomes very important to understand.

A BK senior is a representative of the BK religion. In layman terms; he/she is a “salesman” pitching for “what is right” according to their beliefs.

Advice should come as a consequence of understanding the individual situation of a person, not on how a person could fit a religion or the ideal of “right.”
Moreover, those who know about the “eternal predestined Drama,” could give advice only when knowing what the future has for a person. This “fortune telling” trick is not a gift that everyone has.

Without this important piece, any advice is plain “manmat,” even if given by a BK senior who has 50 plus years “surrendered” to the religion.

I recall that a friend of mine had doubts about living in a center. She had doubts. She wanted to “do” the “right thing,” and asked a senior BK what she should DO.

The response was: “You are already there. You made it.” That response was taken as “The senior responded to my question.”

The reality was that her struggle continued. “Doing the right thing” has so many implications, especially nullifying Life experiences for the sake of following an ideal.
“Doing the right thing” is truly lack of self-esteem. What you feel doesn’t matter.
Nevertheless, according to our state of consciousness this practice of “doing the right thing” may be helpful.

A child needs to follow brainy, intellectual decisions of his parents to make it in the world of the mind, the “office world.”
As the child grows up, he could be conditioned to follow his reasons rather than his heart, but depending on his awareness he will do according to what he is, as long as there are no external fears biasing his “choice”.

Similarly, a BK brother or sister is going through the stage of childhood, “spiritually” speaking. It is necessary to follow directions, to follow timelines and “do’s and don’ts”, even to have some fears of “not making it” to help into the BK conditioning.
We may need to be aware that unless the child grows up, he cannot realize himself. He cannot know his potential.

Following or not following will take you to your destination in the predestined Drama. If your DOING goes according to your BEING, there will be fulfillment. If your DOING is according to an ideal, you will be forcing yourself to DO something that you ARE not.

Inner honesty is not necessarily about DOING the belief of what is the “right thing.”

For the common good.
