Being does not mean to BE something.

The Drama has a path to follow. It moves through the same steps over and over again.
Any person is included in this movement. Some people in this life time, will “improve,” others will not. Different timing.

From our limited (ignorant) perspective, if “I” want to improve “now,” I should DO things to fight and get my way. (“My” idea of improvement.)
Observe that it may not be my time yet. It may be a different life time. Nevertheless, that fight “now” with my destiny, is needed in my Life experience.
Therefore, DOING some practice is not the issue for whether I DO or I don’t, still my destiny will be what it ought to be. In Life, we don’t need to learn to swim with the current or against it. We just need to float and let the current take us. When you know that Life is a circle; What is the hurry? Where do you want to get “first”?
We are sold on the label “improvement.”

What do we typically call “improvement” in “spirituality”?
I use to DO this and now I don’t OR, I didn’t DO that but now I DO.
Everything is in the realm of DOING. That is a “Yogi.” Yogis are using their will power to overcome everything. “I” will make myself DO or don’t DO certain things which I BELIEVE to be right for MY “improvement.”

Out of all the “practices” in my Brahma Kumaris experience as a yogi, the only one  remaining is to be a vegetarian. Certainly, it is not a “practice” for me.

That is natural to me. It was with me even before joining the Brahma Kumaris. I did not make any effort to “practice” that, thus; when the Brahma Kumaris conditioning ended in my path, that is the only thing that remained true to myself.
Everything else was artificially put there through my will power an my beliefs.
Those things went away.

What is natural is what you ARE. Acknowledge that. Learn from that.
Consciousness does not change through opposition of something which we may label as “bad.”
That only allows for a fight to appear, a clash. However, that is not “bad,” for it may be part of someone’s path.
The “I” opposes to something to differentiate from it, but there is nothing solid to define the “I.”

What do we call “I”?
That is the question that continually gets covered with other “nice” labels.
“I” am a soul, a son of God, an angel, a deity, etc.
Those labels will not allow me to look inside and see who “I am.”

Brahma Kumaris knowledge makes a distinct separation between the “I” and the Drama of Life. This separation makes the journey of the yogi.
Nevertheless, the same knowledge points out the repetitive nature of the Drama, its predestined path. The “I” is part of it.
The issue is not whether to DO or not to DO something in Life.  The issue is whether we are conscious, aware of the direction of the current of Life.

You have the right path and the left path. The “right” path is not necessarily to go right all the time. Feel the path. If we are conditioned to believe that the left path is “bad,” we will not be able to feel. The mind usually will set up our lives into narrow paths, the heart feels Life.

For the common good.
