To renounce renunciation

Those were BapDada’s words as I recall them, from when I was attending Murli classes.
Observe that the word “renunciation” is taken in many ways by many Brahma Kumaris followers.
For some it is the renunciation of the “bad” so the “good” appears. That is easy to understand intellectually. It makes “sense.” However, it is completely, utterly meaningless.
“Good and Bad” are dualities. All dualities are complementary in nature.

DO what you BELIEVE to be “Good.” Sooner or later, it will turn into “Bad” for others and yourself. That is the superhero story in the movies. That is self-righteousness.
There is movement of dualities all the time. Observe Life! Nothing remains the same but only the IDEAL that something is “good,” forever.
Of course, the above will not be understood by the masses, the majority; so it will be dismissed as “manmat.” There cannot be a “best-seller” book with that.

BapDada has said many things about renunciation in every type of Murli, there are many apparently contradictory statements.
For most Brahma Kumaris followers, it is about letting go of whatever they feel it is “bad” for them based on what the religion believes to be “bad.”
Sex is bad. Renounce it.
To eat food from non-Brahma Kumaris followers is “bad.” Renounce it.
Anger is “bad.” Renounce it.
Relationships with people is “bad.” Renounce it.

Let me ask: How would you make sense of the greatest renunciation of all, to “renounce renunciation”?  🙂

If I AM anger and then I make myself believe that “I will renounce anger,” I am kidding myself. I could reject anger, I could suppress it… to make others as well as myself believe that there is no anger in me. However, it is a lie.

When anger goes away, then that is who I AM. It happens without renouncing anger. I have renounced renunciation.
It is natural. Remember that word, natural? BapDada uses it as well.
We may ask, how do I make anger go away?
The answer is: “I” don’t make anything happen. “I” ALLOW it to happen.  If that “I” DOES something, it will only be to comply with an ideal, a belief which does not fit, who “I AM” now. Observe that.

To understand anger, we need to observe it. We need to be AWARE of the triggers. Then we need to be AWARE of the emotions that are making the knots of anger… and untie them through emotional healing, realizations, forgiveness, etc.

“I” AM not renouncing anything. “I” AM not labeling anything as “bad” to make me feel guilty if “I AM” that. Neither I am labeling that as “good” to judge others. “I” am out of the duality, thus I can observe, realize, become aware and use this opportunity to know myself by allowing it to change…naturally.
I have renounced renunciation, thus; I am truly following Shrimat.

The stern, serious face of a renunciate is almost like he is constipated.  He must renounce going to the bathroom, for that is dirty, impure, etc. The “bad” things are kept inside, not allowing them to express. Think about the consequences.

For the common good.
