The stratagem of “Baba and I.”

What are the 3 main points in BK knowledge?
Baba, Drama and I.

Many BKs will repeat this and will act as if no one else was important in their world.
That “point of knowledge” eventually came down to “Only Baba and I.”

Many BKs assume that “Baba” works as a filter or middleman in between “I” and the world.
Emotional suffering is not possible if my emotional energy goes only towards Baba and no one else, in theory.
Thus, “Baba and I and no one else.”

This BK method is mostly misunderstood. There are very few who may know the significance of this “yukti.” It is a stratagem.

First, when we say “Drama,” automatically Baba and I are included. Why?
Because I and Baba are part of Drama. In fact, not only part but Drama itself.
There is only Drama, Life. Nevertheless, through our limited language of separation, the belief that there are many separated things is obvious, for we do not see the intimate relationship of all, as unity, as One.

It is like naming the body parts as separate entities of the outer “me.” A label like “hand” is used for practical reasons, but hand does not exist without arm and arm does not exist without chest and so on. It is a system, unity.

Similarly, we cannot separate from people and things by just saying “Baba and I.”

If we want to go deeper; let me ask you:
Who is that I?
Most BKs will say “soul.” But to say “soul” is truly like saying “body.”
Why?
I am referring only to the container. A “soul” is a container.
“you” were a soul (container) in the Silver age as well as now, however; different. What is what makes the difference?
It is called consciousness, your “part” that is who you perceive to be “you.” Our part is not just the job that we have. The part are ideas, feelings, beliefs, traumas, thoughts, emotions, etc. All of that is “you.” The “soul” merely contains that as a glass contains water, air, juice, milk, wine, etc.

That “liquid” inside the glass is “you.” That liquid is Drama… or CONSCIOUSNESS.
Therefore, when we say “Baba and I” we are referring to that “liquid” (consciousness) at this point in time. That liquid will change as we have changed throughout time. For Life/Drama changes.
What is the effect of “Baba and I”?
To define the unconstricted liquid “I” into something concrete. It is a “spiritual stratagem.” Ego strengthens, increases when it is concrete, thus  “I.” 

That is why, I have mentioned many times that the BK “method” is meant to increase ego for the more we define that “I” with the support of “Baba” and the intention to separate those two from the rest of the Universe, that is an excellent way to support the existence of the “I.”

There cannot be “Only Baba and I.” It is impossible, for the Drama is unity of all those things that we see as components, parts, etc.

Thus, it is infantile to separate that which cannot be. Nevertheless, it is a great method to solidify ego. That is great! For ego can be dissolved only when it reaches its utmost of expansion. That is where the BK “method” becomes exceedingly efficient.

To change our consciousness, our perception of the Universe, we need to change our referential position. If we just follow a “method” which only brings known “truths,” it is impossible to act spontaneously thereby change positions, for we will only follow a known paradigm. A stratagem will allow us to go outside the “known truth,” to find the “truth” within ourselves.

For the common good.
