Question: Significance of the Drama, Peace and Happiness – Sakar Murli.

Can you elaborate on this?

“By understanding the significance of which aspect do you children not ask for peace or happiness?
Answer:
You understand the significance of the drama. You understand that the play is now about to end. You will first return to the land of peace and then go to the land of happiness. This is why you do not ask for peace or happiness. You stabilise yourselves in your original religion of peace. People do not even know about the religion of the self nor do they understand the significance of the drama. This is why they say, “Give peace to my mind!” In fact, it is the soul that needs peace, not the mind.”

Thank you for your question.
To understand Brahma Kumaris’ purpose is to understand first, our own minds.
Brahma Kumaris is about intellectual understanding. Nevertheless, that intellectual understanding is unable to make a change in consciousness.
Yes, we can understand the significance of the Drama. It is eternally repetitive. Thus, for the mind the incentive is in the “future.” “Over there “I” will be happy and peaceful. Right now, “I” have to make effort.” 

The gist of any Sakar Murli is to make us “understand” that “right now”  does not matter, for the reward is coming up in the “future,” in my “next life.”
That is the “reality” of the mind which likes to fantasize with the future and the past, but it is hardly the reality of BEING.

Observe the language: “religion of the self.” There is no such a thing. Many things get lost in translation of the original Sakar Murlis. It all depends on the choice of words of the one(s) translating and more important, his practical experience.
Thus, I can say without hesitation that the original teachings of Brahma Baba have been changed to portray followers understanding instead. This is the reason why we may need to go into our own experience and our own feeling rather than blindly following paragraphs of beliefs.

Peace is not of the soul nor the mind. Peace is a state of BEING.
That is related with consciousness not with the container of roles, the soul.
The “land of peace” is truly the “land of emptiness.” The soul is empty of content, thus; that state could be labeled as peace. But it is not practical peace, it is not to BE peace in the world.

Our minds are full of things. There cannot be peace there, for the mind overrides the emptiness of BEING. That is why in Brahma Kumaris it is emphasized to keep the mind busy with “remembrance.” It is thought that “I” can control the mind if “I” give a recurrent thought to it and make it stronger, if “I” add a feeling. 

The state of “no-mind” is not known; however, that is the practical experience to be in the “present,” the “now.”

Therefore, to know about the significance of the Drama will do very little for our consciousness. If there is something “bad” happening in our lives, we will be shaken no matter how much we understand the Drama.
True understanding is not of the mind, it is about consciousness.
Interestingly, I do not recall if ever that word (consciousness) has been used in a Sakar Murli. Probably the word “soul” is used instead; thus the confusion for the follower.
What confusion?

“I am a peaceful soul, but I am not that now. I need that peace, it will come in the “future.” Or, I need to take away the “rust” to be peaceful.” But Peace is not an intellectual idea that I can imbibe by repeating “I am a peaceful soul” or by knowing the significance of the Drama.
Have we experienced that?

For the common good.
