Murli point- May 17, 2017

“Sweet children, become conquerors of sleep, stay awake at night and churn knowledge, stay in remembrance of the Father and your mercury of happiness will rise.
Question:

There are many holidays in Bharat, but you don’t get a holiday in the confluence age for even a second; why?
Answer:

Because every second of the confluence age is most valuable. You have to remember the Father in every breath. Remain engaged in service, day and night. Become obedient and faithful, have your sins absolved by having remembrance and return straight home with honour. You have to become free from punishment and make both the soul and the body pure. This is why you cannot get a holiday for even a second.”

Sakar Murlis have value to inspire “effort makers” to DO many things which are thought that will bring benefit to the follower.
The downside is that when taken literally in particular settings, it could actually hurt the follower.
Nevertheless; as the Drama has it, even though a follower follows a direction which may seem “outlandish,” he may find the benefit that he was seeking, although it will be for a limited  time only.

A “conqueror of sleep” is one of those items that BKs may discover could benefit in some ways (Waking up early and going to bed early, if the follower did not have any discipline before) but many circumstances may change around the individual. Time to change has arrived, but the follower may want to stick with his mental ideals and make this valuable Life in the “confluence age” a fearful experience.

“Stay awake at night and churn knowledge,” could be interpreted in many ways, thus it is useless as a “direction,” for it will not fit everyone’s case.

BK knowledge has the “remembrance of the father” as a direction. However, that “direction” is interpreted in many ways. Paradoxically, that is actually the “success” of that direction. It is highly ambiguous.

“Why that BK did not “succeed”? “He did not remember the father appropriately. That is why he is gone. He failed. His fortune is gone…”

Let me add another layer to remembrance: “He did not have enough yoga.” And a different spin: “He did not DO enough mansa seva.”

They are all pretty much the same thing, but because it is so open for interpretation, and BK Raja yoga is the “yoga” of the mind; that ambiguousness makes for mental “churning” which is necessary in BK knowledge to keep the mind of the follower “busy.”

For someone living in the mind, a busy mind is his Life and nothing better than churning knowledge for that busy-ness.

I am merely describing the method.  In a different consciousness, out of the mind, that method is no longer needed.

“Become obedient and faithful, have your sins absolved through remembrance… so you don’t experience punishment.”
It is assumed that these things will take time, lots of DOING, that is why there is no time for a break.
It is assumed that the follower is a child who needs to comply with some authority. That is part of the conditioning to last in the BK life.

Nevertheless, those DOINGS are not guarantee that the follower will “make both the body and soul pure.”

There is no guarantee at all unless the follower DOES the method “right,” but the “method” is open for interpretation. Who has the “right” method explained ?   Not even the Murlis.  

For the common good.
