The foundation of knowledge is faith

Murli 23-06-17

Sweet children, the foundation of knowledge is faith. Make effort with your intellect having faith and you will reach the destination.
What one aspect should you understand deeply and have faith in?
The karmic accounts of all souls are about to be settled and everyone will return to the sweet home like a swarm of mosquitoes. After that, only a few souls will go to the new world. This aspect should be understood deeply and you must have faith in it.
Which children is the Father pleased to see?
The children who completely sacrifice themselves to the Father, those who are not shaken by Maya, that is, who are as unshakeable and immovable as Angad. The Father is pleased to see such children.
Have patience, o mind! Your days of happiness are about to come.

A friend, sent me this Murli for my comments.  Here they are.

In the Sakar Murli of 6/23/17, we could observe that knowledge according to Brahma Kumaris, has a foundation before it. That foundation is faith.

Faith is a sentimental belief beyond rational, intellectual grasp.
Knowledge is the theory, it is the belief of “truth.” It is something that could be explained to others, rationalized. In the case of Brahma Kumaris, it is the explanation on how everything works in Life, our “purpose” and what God is.

For most followers, there is no experience of “knowledge.”
It is a tale for grown-ups. What is the use of knowing that God is a soul, or that “I” am a soul if there is no experience of that?
What is the use of the knowledge of predestination if there is no experience of that?

Those are the theoretical aspects to believe in. Blindly.
If those aspects of knowledge where experienced, there wouldn’t be a need to have faith.

This is the first point to observe about this Murli.

Again, in the second question there is the aspect of “understanding” intellectually what “karma” is and to have faith in that.
There is the “theory of karma” and we should act according to our understanding of it.
I act in a certain way and there are consequences of those actions. Karma is action.
Let us say that I am riding my bike and a lizard appears from nowhere. I still have time to use my brakes, but I decide to go on thinking the lizard will “see” the bike. It doesn’t happen. The lizard gets run over. That is the action. What are the consequences?
Karma is not as simple as that. INTENTION is a big player in every karmic consequence. However, that is not explained in Brahma Kumaris knowledge. A “black or white” knowledge is easy to follow, easy to understand; however, it is far from what it “is.”
Brahma Kumaris is the path of the mind. To conquer the mind means to follow some activities, so even if internally thoughts are infused with negativity, even if the root is negativity, “I” will re-shape them into some learned “positivity” and reinforce that with some actions, karma, doings.

We have not changed the source. No matter what we DO. Consider that.

The second question in the Murli, is about “sacrifice” for the “Father.”
How do you sacrifice? What is the need to sacrifice?
Those are the main questions to answer. In my experience, any form of DOING for others, may have good reviews from others, it may be morally accepted and praised, but we are merely conforming to our conditioning.

To follow a religious path is to “sacrifice” yourself. But, don’t believe that something “good” will emerge out of that. No matter how “unshakable” (stubborn) we become.
Love has been the way, but when we do not know love, sacrifice has been invented.

The “song” in the Murli gives importance to the mind. There is no happiness for the mind. The whole thing about the mind is to be active, to search for things, to be in movement wanting, desiring, acquiring, looking for something else.
Happiness is in no mind, but this is not something to DO. It happens.

For the common good.
