Remember ME alone

In Brahma Kumaris’ Sakar Murli there is a phrase that although spoken frequently, it is misunderstood. “Remember me alone.”

Brahma Kumaris offers “shortcuts” to deal with the mind. Brahma Kumaris is ultimately from my experience, a path to try to transcend the mind.

One of the “methods” used is remembrance also known as “yoga.”
The mind could bring thoughts which if not observed, could change the mood of a person. We could have so many thoughts that could even make our life hard to live. How do we deal with that? Remembrance is the BK answer. For in that method rather than BEING a DETACHED OBSERVER of those thoughts, we need to change them into something else: Visualize Baba in the subtle region. Visualize ShivBaba in Parandham. Use your mind to create another setting. Use your feelings (love to Baba) to make that experience into a “blissful one.”

Without a doubt, it is a method to deal with unwanted thinking. But at the same time, there is control of the situation by this “I” who is not willing to OBSERVE and LEARN but it is only concerned to change things momentarily. That is why, to have “yoga” is never ending. A mental process with made up feelings, is a palliative solution.

We cannot BE a DETACHED OBSERVER and at the same time try to CONTROL things in our inner world.

What are you going to remember? What is the remember me alone?
It is an idea, a mental construct of what God is or should be. For others, it is a re-creation of some past experience. Some subtle experience they had. Yet for others, it is about some “future” experience in the Golden age, etc.
OBSERVE that those types of remembrances are only about the mind (going to the past or the future but never to BE present.)

That type of method is like watching the same movie over and over again to escape from the menace of the mind.
In a nutshell, REMEMBRANCE is a trick to deal with the tiring mind. CONTROL is artificially made, by changing the thoughts once we become AWARE, thus; the importance of REMEMBER BABA ALONE ALL THE TIME- for most are UNAWARE of the mind.

In the AVYAKT Murlis, BapDada used the words ”Detached Observer.” There is no such a thing in the Sakar Murlis.
To BE a detached observer, the mind should BE as it IS. OBSERVE it. It is not YOU creating that mental “show.” Once we become identified with that thought of being “mine,” there is no longer observation.
A way to describe that observation, is by saying: REMEMBER “ME” ALONE.
THAT “ME” IS NOT SHIVA OR BABA, THAT “ME” IS A CENTERING OF WHO I AM. IT IS “ME.”

When we are centered in BEING there is no ME, but we ARE AWARE. THAT AWARENESS IS DETACHED, thus a DETACHED OBSERVER.

In a nutshell: “Remember me alone” as understood by the majority of BKs, will not allow us to OBSERVE and Learn about our inner world.
“Remember me alone” as understood by the majority of BKs, is not consistent with BEING a DETACHED OBSERVER.

In my experience, to “REMEMBER ME ALONE” could be more closely put in words if we follow Gurdjieff teaching of “Self-remembering;” however; SELF is not truly there. In a sense it is INNER AWARENESS.
There is a CENTER which is called as “self.” Through that center, there is OBSERVATION. Thus, a detached observer.

Is the BK teaching of “remembering me alone” of the Sakar Murlis, “wrong”?
There are not “right” answers, but your state of consciousness will dictate when something rings a bell for you. The BK path of the Sakar Murlis, is a starting point for a seeker. The Avyakt Murlis, is the next step in the BK path.

For the common good.
