BEING does not change through intellectual understanding.

Gayathri wrote an article which she shared it here.
In this article, she expresses her understanding of the Drama, the soul and the predestined roles; explained in her unique ways supported by her own experiences.
I am appreciative of her sharing. It is a well written article.

However, her second article here is my favorite. Why?
It is “real.” Anyone could observe her words in our own selves. We have been conditioned to believe that “ I create my thoughts,” we go with that belief, even though, plain observation and awareness may convey otherwise. It requires “effort” to look without bias. She just shared a third article here, which is equally good.

However, after understanding intellectually all of those wonderful things; ARE we detached observers, or simply happy enjoying the movie of Life?
No?
Then of what good is that ”understanding”?

If we suffer a disease, we should be happy. Right? Didn’t Baba tell us to be happy by paying happily our “debts,” our karmic accounts?

In a nutshell: What we DO is to fake what we truly feel. To add a few more days of fake intellectual happiness until the mind gets “needy” again. Then, it needs another fix of beliefs.

Brahma Kumaris is the path of the mind (Raja Yoga.)
Baba is giving “reasons,” “truths,” “explanations,” and even “churnings” of intelligent children with “good intellects” to satisfy the hunger of “knowledge” of the children.
He is giving all of that because the “children” are trapped in their own minds.

We are conditioned to believe in something. We are conditioned to believe that when we know the “truth,” that will save us, that will make us “special.”
But we can only go as far as our conditioning permits.

For instance, we “know” the Drama is predestined, but yet we believe that there is good and bad, right or wrong. We label people, situations, circumstances, accordingly.
If the Drama is predestined how is it possible to label something as “bad”? It was necessary. “Beneficial.” Thus, Is a low status “bad”? Is the Iron age “bad”? 
“Churn” about it. But if you ARE invested in a belief system, you cannot explore. You are limited by your conditioning.

The mind creates the “I.”
The “I” creates predestination and free will. Those words and their meaning only exist in the mind, not in Life.
Are we “actors”? An actor is aware of being an actor by learning a script. We are not aware of being actors. We don’t learn scripts. We believe that we make them. We feel that what is happening is “real.” We feel that it is not a play. Then why lie to ourselves?

To calm the mind and get out of our sorrow temporarily.
We are looking for a way to escape our sorrow and disappointments in Life.

We are willing to make this Life a martyrdom so in the “afterlife,” we could be someone “special.” That is how desperate we are.

The medicine is to go through the experience itself. Not to try to escape it. Light is at the end of that tunnel. We need to walk to the other side. We may be afraid, we may be attached to our current situation, we may value the safety of the known (even though suffering) greater than the unknown.

A Sakar Murli has said that “courage” is the predominant quality of a Deity soul.
Be courageous. Everything and anything is bound to start and to finish. That is our experience. No need to add beliefs or intellectual theories.
Courage is the quality which allows a person to BE despite the different types of weather. Life is that weather. The weather is seasonal. That is our experience. No beliefs are necessary.

By covering our mind with beliefs and intellectual realizations, we may calm the mind; but never BEING.
Whether we believe to be a soul, a spirit or a body is of no consequence.

Enjoy the experience of living. The contrasts, the surprises, the challenges, etc. Whether it repeats eternally or not, is of no consequence at all. What matters is “Now.”
“Now” is the only time when we can experience and enjoy Life. As mentioned before: Enjoyment and appreciation are “good” karma for all.

For the common good.

Until November 30th! 🙂
