Slogan of Sakar Murli 7/27/17 : Comments

A reader requested my comments on this:

The slogan of the SM of 7/27/17 was: “The basis of your stage is your awareness. Therefore, let there always be the awareness of happiness.”

The way the Murli uses the word “awareness” may be different than my own experience. It appears the Murli uses the word “awareness” as “perception.”
Thus: ” The basis of your stage is your perception. Thus, let there always be the perception of happiness.”
Nevertheless, the basis of our stage is AWARENESS and not perception.

Awareness is not a practice. Awareness is not something that we DO on a regular basis to accomplish something.
Yes, the basis of our stage in Life is our awareness. That will define our consciousness.
However, the second part of the slogan does not make any sense.

Happiness is a state of BEING. That state depends on our consciousness. As our consciousness IS so will be our AWARENESS.
We cannot force our awareness to be centered in some ideal of happiness. That is just an idea; but we could perceive happiness as moments of elation, joy, delight, etc.

Someone whose consciousness is not vibrating in happiness, cannot be aware of happiness. For those, happiness is just an intellectual idea, something to “achieve.”

As we ARE is what we ARE AWARE OF, naturally without any “practice” of willful remembrance of some formula.

Happiness is not a particular incident that brings elation. It is a harmonious state, calm, peaceful, vital which permeates everything we DO. Therefore, we cannot be AWARE of that if we ARE NOT that.

The above “slogan” is an example of the misinterpretation that could happen due to the use of particular words. Translation is alway an issue. Lack of “spiritual” experience of the one translating, is a big issue in misinterpretation of a teaching. That is why, it was suggested to match the words through our own experience and not just follow the words through blind faith.

I’d suggest the Slogan to be translated/constructed in this way:
“The basis of your stage is your awareness. Let there always be the perception of happiness.”

For the common good.
