"Choice" to come down the ladder

The “eternally predestined Drama” means a plot which allows for Life to recycle itself. Observe that nothing in it can be labeled as “bad” or “good” but rather necessary. However,  there is this idea that “I” can change things the way “I” want to, based on an understanding of human or “godly” morality. 

Who is that “I”?
“You” have been “coming down the ladder” without DOING something purposely for it to happen.  “You” were not AWARE. “You” were “good” and turned out to be “bad” after a while. Why should you DO a thing to “go up the ladder”?

A BK follower may say: “That is entropy”.
That is Jagdish’s terminology, but entropy means “gradual decline into chaos”; however, in the Drama things go back to the way it was before, thus every moment is “eternal”.
How do we explain this?
Because the Drama is a circle. It is not a line. For the travelers of the circle there is no “up or down”, there is merely movement around it.
Because of that, the word “entropy” may not be accurate.

The conventional idea is that “If I am going down the ladder, I need to make effort to go up”.
That is the belief behind “effort making.” “I make effort.”
Nevertheless, in Life what goes down will go up… all by itself… It is in the Drama!

Going “up” or “down” has no morality in the circle of Life. It is part of the human experience. However, most have agreed that “going up” is “good” and “going down” is “bad”. The efforts of the “I” are needed to remain “up” and resist going down.

That is the “maya”.

Someone will ask: “So what DO I DO? To let myself be pulled by Life?”

Please understand. Whatever “you” consider to BE “you” is Life itself.
Any decisions “you” make based on ideals are just that, ideals.

BapDada has taught to BKs in the Avyakt Murlis about “being a detached observer.”
We can only talk about being a detached observer because there is a predestined Drama. Otherwise, we cannot. Otherwise, there is the “I” who will be responsible and accountable for not DOING the “right thing”.

A detached observer appears as a consequence of assimilation of experiences. If there is rejection of a particular experience, then we are not being detached. There is a “button” being pushed.

The Drama is a movie. Enjoy it! That has been the message for a long time now. Your capacity to enjoy Life is “good karma” but that is hindered by the conditioned mind. Therefore, observe that which we call mind, get acquainted with it. It is not about judging, but to be open to discover what it is.

“You” are the movie of Life. “You” want to change what is in the movie. However: How can “you” change a movie that has already been made?

The illusion is in the one who wants to change the movie.
Yes, in the movie you eat chocolate ice cream. It happens that you like that ice cream. You call that “my choice” but you never think about how that liking for chocolate ice cream came to you. It is easier to say: “It is my choice, my liking” but all your choices come from what the movie offers and the conditioning of previous experiences, which you had no “control of”.
Do you see that?

Observe the movie, enjoy it… That is all. You can play the game of “making choices” and feel ‘good’ or ‘bad’ or guilty/innocent… all the dualities, but now you know that there is no “true”choice, for there is no “I.” However, if you are not AWARE, a big “I” will be growing and choices/decisions will appear as being “mine.” But do not worry…That is not “bad” or “good”. It is necessary. Become AWARE of it for any change to happen “naturally” and not through following a commandment or a religious dogma. That is artificial… but necessary for many.
The movie moves through stories. You are part of that story…. But your story depends on other connected stories. A what point then, you could separate from everything else?

Only in your mind.

For the common good.
