    Wasteful “churning.” 

    As Brahma Kumaris is the path of the mind (Raja Yoga) there is a need to maintain the intellect occupied in “worthwhile things” so the mind does not wander to activate the otherwise, normal tendencies of a person (sanskaras.)
    Therefore, “churning” appears.
    When “churning” is done properly, a sense of satisfaction and even a moment of “happiness” in the mind will appear.
    Happiness is not of the mind; but when the mind finds something interesting or solves something challenging, that moment brings elation (happiness of the mind.)

    For instance, I could churn about the different roles in the kalpa that “I” the soul has performed. BapDada uses this type of churning: “Now a BK, then an angel and then a deity.” For most followers is about repeating the same words to “practice” “spinning the discuss of self-realization.”

    Repeating BapDada’s words does not do a thing. What matters is the “churning” (realizations) of going into the kalpa while performing different roles. All roles important and necessary. Although the “bad” roles are not typically acknowledged, someone who truly churns will observe that paradoxically, in the cycle of time there cannot be a “bad” role but it is there out of necessity, so its counterpart could appear.

    For most BKs, to “churn” means to go into senseless trivia of gyany beliefs. Some may be concerned about the date of destruction. Or trying to come up with a date as to when the copper age ended. Some go even further, as to come up with a mathematical formula to prove the cycle of time to be “right.”
    All of that is of no use at all, other than entertainment for the mind.

    If Krishna is the first “pure” human being born from impure royal family, how is that his parents acquired the “power of yoga”? Are his parents BK? If so, they should be well known king and queen at this time, right?
    Let us “churn” that.
    That is wasteful churning.

    What about the Advanced party whereabouts? How is it that some animals will exist in the Golden age and not others?
    I recall that BapDada responded to a similar question by saying: ” Do not worry about the furniture.”
    That is the mind going into wasteful thinking, although covered under the veil of gyan.

    Someone may say: “But it is important to find out the truth of the story of animals (furniture) in the golden age.”
    That misses the point as to the reason of Brahma Kumaris existence.
    Brahma Kumaris is a method to understand our own mind, our ego, for self-realization, godly realization, etc. Many things for many individuals. BK beliefs may be accurate or not. It is meant to entice the follower to follow. If someone finds out if all animals at this time, will be in the Golden age as well, that “great finding” means nothing. What is important is the transformation of BEING, even though, through Santa Claus’ type of stories.

    “Churning” is meant to entertain and to give elation to the mind. That is all.
    “Churning gyan” will not take anyone into self-realization, for “churning” is theoretical, abstract, mind driven. On the other hand, the path of self-realization is practical, tangible, in the “now.”
    In the obstacle course of the path of self-realization, the mind is one of the greatest hurdle.

    For the common good.

    Destruction is just ahead 

    “Destruction is just ahead” is one of the most unforgettable lines of a Sakar Murli. It is the motivation for many BKs to “make effort.” Little time remains, hurry up! Or you will be sorry for eternity that “you” failed!

    The interesting thing is that “failure” is open for discussion and “you” will not be able to find out if “you” made it or not. Once “you” leave the body (die) there is no longer “you.”

    But what about your “subtle body”? That is the “you” that will suffer!
    Nevertheless, my “subtle body” is already “there” but yet “I” am not aware of it… Isn’t that a wonder?

    Is “Mama” in the subtle region or with the “advance party”?
    This is a nice question to ask. That question should take care of the ideas about the “I” and the “you” but… not too many will understand… so stick with that “I.”

    How ahead is “just ahead”? That is the question!
    What I learned about the “subtle experiences” is that humans tend to make assumptions. We may have a dream about destruction. Shall we say that it will be within 10 years?
    Based on what?
    Are we looking for “signs,” such a war in some country, or a natural disaster some other place, etc?

    That could be, but maybe not.
    What about if our vision or dream was misinterpreted?
    Maybe. Maybe not.

    Life (Drama) has many curves. It is not meant to be as humans believe or understand to be.

    A dream or a vision may be just that. May be not. It could happen in your lifetime. Maybe not.

    It is that uncertainty what kills us, that is what will make us DO things to be “safe” in case something happens…
    The “prize” for being prepared is “heaven.” Nevertheless, no one will ever find out if they were prepared or not… How do you prepare? Is it on “you” to settle your karmic accounts? How do you know if ALL of them were settled?  🙂 By not living life? By safely surrounding yourself with as little people as possible?

    “Destruction is just ahead.” That is how newness appears… but as we know, we are “eternal souls” so what is the “problem”?
    Most want newness but they will not let go of that which is old.
    That is not new at all, but a modification of the same thing to make us believe that we are on target…  Do you want to “save” yourself? Do you want to live in Madhuban or India to make sure that you will continue to exist?  You see, it is all about “you.” It is that “I” the one that needs a promotion before it shrinks!

    For the common good.

    The core of Brahma Kumaris gyan. 

    Looking back from my actual perspective of Life, the piece of Knowledge which has had significance in my Life, is the cycle of time.

    As a matter of fact, from my view it is the only “knowledge” with significance.
    The cycle of time is not a Brahma Kumaris discovery. It has existed in Hinduism, although with a different take, duration, stories, etc.

    A deeper understanding of it, will take someone into what Zen, Taoism and even Tantra are explaining in their own ways.
    The “unlimited” movie is all that exists, and it already has a reel of scenes which have been already shot in “advance,” which are always running.  We could perceive things as the “I” separated from the movie as many religions including Brahma Kumaris perceive, AND/OR we can see that the “I” as separation is an illusion.  Have you heard this terminology? To BE nothing, to DO nothing, to witness, to BE everything there is…. The Drama. 

    Who am I? That question when answered honestly does not have an answer. Yes, it is the soul, right? No. That is a BELIEF. For most is only about replacing the word “I” with the word “soul.” To say “I am a soul” does not mean that I have honestly felt, that I know out of my own experience.  If you knew, you wouldn’t be a BK follower, because the “goal” would have been “achieved”. Soul conscious.   The belief is that by DOING or not DOING things, soul consciousness will arrive to you.

    Because the movie is a “game,” to enjoy that experience is the natural outcome of “understanding” deep gyan, which is the core of Tantra.

    The importance and emphasis of the “I” in Brahma Kumaris knowledge, may be a source of distortion.
    It is “Baba and I,” “Mera Baba,” the “I” is always there, even in Heaven; thus; the need of that “I” to DO things to make things happen and fight with all forces of evil or Maya or anything which comes in front, to obtain the goal, the golden carrot; which is obtained with much denial of what our current Life offers to the “I,” for those things are “impure,” and “I” am becoming “pure.”
    Without a doubt that is a great setup to observe the ego in action. Unfortunately it is not like that for in that state of consciousness, awareness is not developed yet.

    Baba needs to tell me what to DO, how to DO it and WHEN to DO it.
    “I” am totally dependent on his instructions. “I” am afraid of making “mistakes,” for “I” want to be “right.”

    If that “I” is not seen for what it is, I am afraid the BK experience will only serve as a way to further enhance the ego. Either way, it is good.

    Many Brahma Kumaris followers are beginning their “spiritual careers” by understanding the mind.
    I recall that avyakt7 was a great “churner” of “knowledge.”
    To figure out the whereabouts of Lakshmi and Narayan, the Advanced party and all the secrets behind the 108 and the first day of the Golden age, and then to go into the dinosaurs alley and their existence in the “Copper age” or lack of it, all of that has no value for me at this time.
    Zero, Nada, Zilch.

    However, I can understand why many Brahma Kumaris brothers and sister are still using their minds to figure those things out. I was there.
    You may get the reputation of “best churner,” and be compared with Jagdish Bhai nevertheless; all of that is pointless in self-realization, but yet another good source of ego.

    To go into the significance of the cycle of time and its repetition, is to discover that the separation of the “I” from the unlimited movie, is a mirage, a “big maya.” Everything is together. Everything is the movie, including “you,” the “I.”

    In order to dilute the ego, it needs to be enhanced first; and Brahma Kumaris does a pretty good job in that.

    For the common good.

      Hmm, well portrayed Ahnanda… The knowledge of drama is wonderful. But two things that make and made me feel strange and do something like “eeyyyooo (A feeling of great dislike)” after the lesson of drama are:

      All that bad stuff and immense suffering I went through since iron age and especially in this particular birth is going to happen with me again and again in every kalpa, every cycle, because my suffering in this particular birth was immense…:(
      Since the drama is cyclic in nature, you cannot escape from it, there is no way, if I would request Baba that I don’t want to come in iron age and copper age, I only want to come in golden and silver age, he will say “Law does not hold that dude”. Because right now you are in the drama and to play your part you have to come again so no chance to obtain moksha, libration from cycle of birth and death (My one reason of leaving BKs was this, I would like to take this topic as well with you Ahnanda in future). If we want to escape, we will have to make the drama as linear may be which happens only once. But that’s just my view, you have said in few of your articles that time is cyclic in nature.
      Apart from this Osho explains in one of his lecture that, do you really think that a world so called heaven where everything is considered as perfect, it will be enjoyable to live there. How boring that would be to live there without any problem, like you don’t have anything to do there, no job for survival, no business, although BKs do claim that there will be barter system there, but barter system brings a lot of problems, inequality, storage of material, and so on, so how can a world where there exist a barter system be free from emotional suffering, people won’t feel jealous or low or high when they exchange stuff in barter system!!
      He claims that hell in fact would be a more colorful place, with so many variety of people existing at same time, so many varieties of dances, will there be any dance in heaven, if yes, how many varieties? he goes on and on explain that people have been running behind heaven but you can be in heaven even if you are living in a hell world of today.

        There are still some tribal societies who have no contact with modern society. They use barter system for getting their daily necessities. They enjoy their life with pristine nature. The drama has place for something at a right time.

          That is right, Anil. The Drama has place for something at the right time. It cannot be any other way as we are all part of this marvelous movie.
          Dinesh: The article today goes into your question. I would be glad to go further into it in another article if you have further questions.

          One important thing to remember is that in the Golden age BEING is complete, full. Naturally those BEINGS are “good.” Therefore, whatever they DO is good as well. There is no greed. On the other hand, at this time for most; BEING is incomplete. This is not “bad” but just an experience of the range of experiences which always move from one extreme to the other, from completeness to incompleteness.
          There is nothing to fix, as this is the natural law; only be aware, acknowledge of who we ARE, that brings automatic change.

          Spiritually nowadays, is busy covering our BEING with DOING. Our actions look “good” in the surface but are driven by greed, whether that is to make more money or to get Paradise in the afterlife, it is the same thing.

          Bartering is not a problem. It is not “impure.” Just like sex. The issue is BEING, the type of consciousness behind the action.

          🙂

            Hey, this may seem a little argumentative, “There is no greed in Golden age”. Now suppose ABC BEING is a deity in golden age, sitting and eating the perfect food, as in golden age the food is going to be the Great, “they call it 56 bojan”.

            Now the ABC deity likes one food item and he wants more food item, to get more experience of those 56 bojan, my point is “subtle wanting more” is going to be there, I am sorry to disagree with Ahnanda for the first time, but after all “GREED IS GREED”.

            There is GREED in golden age as well.

              Dinesh: You are assuming that deity ABC will act as “normal” people here. Greed is defined as:”intense and selfish desire for something, especially wealth, power, or food.” THE KEYWORD IS “SELFISH.”
              If I want more food because I am legitimately hungry, that is not greed, it is hunger. If I want more food because is the last portion or someone else may take it, that is not hunger but greed.
              Greed is greed, but hunger is not greed. 🙂

          Daily necessities, enjoyment with pristine nature and a place in drama is not going to free them from all sorts of sufferings forever.

          I am sorry, I have been quite argumentative in both the comments, but one can’t deny these facts. Can you Anil?

          Now may be you have a question why to get rid of all sorts of suffering for ever? Let’s see whether I am able to find that in my personal journey… 🙂
