A different view of the cycle of time

In Brahma Kumaris the belief of the cycle of time is very specific as to put some pressure on the believer. “If you don’t change now, then you will repeat the same mistake cycle after cycle.” The emphasis is on this “I,” who can make a “choice” separated from circumstances, settings and the law of karma.
That is an illusion.

Nevertheless, Brahma Kumaris is fulfilling its mission of giving some direction to the “little child,” as otherwise; he will be utterly lost and prone to fall into “temptation,” aka “Maya.”

If life was as “I” want it to be, then obviously, there wouldn’t be any of the words that we use to describe the “lack of” that most humans live by: Poverty, disease, injustice, wrong doing, insecurity, fear, etc. Those will be experienced by all of us in different degrees. Why? Obviously there are things beyond “my control,” “my choice,” “my free will.”
This “I” has made up ideals which cannot reach. Nevertheless, while we try to “achieve” them, we “kill time” in the belief that we found meaning in Life. We try to come up with meanings as if Life itself wasn’t sufficient. We want more. Some glorious time for the “I.”

Here is the obvious dissonance of the belief of Brahma Kumaris: “Although the cycle of time is predestined, you have free will NOW to change things. Because we don’t know what we have done before. We have a chance to DO what is right NOW.”
Although most conditioned individuals will buy that, as it sounds “reasonable” and “I get the chance to DO as I want,” that is not accurate as elaborated above; although it is helpful for those who are unable to see yet, beyond the box. See the paradox. Although the above BK belief is not true, it is helpful.
Life does not move through the premise of what is “right” or “wrong.” That is only a religious belief. The cycle of time does not care about our moral standards and beliefs.

We have to go through experiences, we label those as: Right, wrong, good, bad, left, right, pure, impure, etc. The “I” wants to discern and choose according to a religious belief.
That religious belief may not be what we truly feel. Repression will be born. A repressed individual is DOING “good” (a belief) although he IS “bad.” (just a label to illustrate that I am not what I believe.) Another paradox. It is called dishonesty. Nevertheless, that is safe for society, a religious organization, etc.

This article is written because it is important to free the individual of living in fear of a belief. “The same mistake will be repeated cycle after cycle for eternity.” That is the biggest lie ever.
It is not a “mistake.” It is a necessary experience. All experiences are necessary as they are, whether we believe in free will or predestination, whether we think we are “moral” or not. All experiences are meshed together, related with other beings. The “I” is not DOING alone, by itself. There is cause and effect behind “our” DOINGS.

Life/ The cycle of time cares very little of “my desire to go to heaven.” Things will happen as they should no matter how many labels or moral standards we believe in.

In a nutshell: While entrenched with the “I,” forget the cycle of timeIt is the most useless belief. That is another paradox. Although the cycle of time is true in that consciousness (“I,”) it is useless information.

If you are out of the “I,” “you” are free from the cycle of time. That which was true, now it is false for “you” are in another consciousness.

What is the “moral” of this story? CONSCIOUSNESS dictates what is true or false for YOU. We cannot fake consciousness for that reflects who we ARE.
“Knowledge” is not information. It does not help me at all, if I “know” that the cycle of time repeats identically every cycle when my consciousness is lost in the “I.” That only gives fear to the “I.”

“Knowledge” are experiences that allow me to increase consciousness, a greater awareness, and openness to Life. Knowledge does not bring fear of living Life.  It brings stability, certainty.
