    The story of Karmic “accounts.” 

    One of the most colorful stories that I recall from my BK days, was without a doubt; the “settlement” and “opening” of karmic accounts.

    As we may recall, a “karmic account” is a new age word for a ready made explanation as to why something usually “bad” is happening to us. Something like: “Why is this person continually fighting with me? I don’t want to. I try to be nice…” The “answer” is something like: “ It is an old karmic bondage that you need to settle with that soul.”

    We believe that “karma” is like a bank account wherever we open and close accounts at will.
    The aftermath of this belief is that the follower will be afraid to live Life. Many BKs will be afraid of “opening” accounts with “souls”, since at the end of the confluence age, those will need to be “closed” to reach a ‘karmateet’ stage.

    Let me be succinct with such beliefs:
    1) There is no way that “I” can close a “karmic account.” That happens when its time has arrived. We do not know the extent and the need of a determined Life experience, all we can do is label those as “karmic bondages” or “good karma”, but the labels don’t mean a thing, when we do not know the origin and the extent of such experiences.

    2) Life is about “karma.” Performing karma and experiencing the consequences of it. Things are not as simple, cut and dry as we may believe. Karma is like spider web with different threads, and the spider is usually walking trough only one of those at a particular time.

    3) At the end of the game, we don’t “settle karma” by DOING something specific to a person or a situation. Karma is settled, when we are beyond the effect of it, that is; when we become detached observers, witness of the consequences to the extent that there is no longer an emotion when the situation arises.

    We may want to rationalize that if something “bad” is happening to us, we are “settling” a Karmic account, as the Sakar Murli mentions, but many times “bad” is only an ill perception, a very narrow vision of the extent of circumstances. When the Drama/ Life is predestined, then everything fits together as it is.
    Many times, we are only conditioned to perform certain actions, believing that those will help us to reach some “godly” goal. That is naive, if the INTENTION behind the action is ego driven.

    Opening many BK centers, as the Sakar Murlis point out; is considered “good”, however; observe the ego of those fools who believe that now they deserve Paradise or worse yet, that Paradise is assured for them. On the contrary, that “good” action will have as a consequence, greater ego.

    “Greater ego” is not “bad” in the unlimited. It is merely a stage necessary to dilute it. Thus, where is the “bad” thing?
    A karmic bondage has its own way out after we have gone through the complete experience. We want to “speed things up”, we want to settle the account, etc. but it is a “good” thing, that many things in Life do not move according to our wishes, but according to what ought to BE.

    In the meantime, “work on” acceptance, gratitude and enjoyment, to make the experience the most pleasant one.

    Understanding the Cycle of time from an unlimited way 

    For those non-Brahma Kumaris readers; it is my experience that time is cyclical and repetitive, just like Brahma Kumaris teaches. This is not a belief for me, it is an experience. Thus, predestination is the outcome of that cyclical time: Fortune telling is possible and it could be very accurate to the point of knowing your day and time of death.  

    The “I” does not like that “concept,” for the “I” likes “free-will.” However, The cycle of time also shows that there is no “I.” Why? If everything repeats, what is that which “I” am doing out of my “own volition”? It is better said: It is done through “me.” But that is not completely accurate… 🙂

    Paradoxically, the teachings from Brahma Kumaris about the cycle of time are limited by the presence of the “I.”

    If we could grasp that this famous “I” exists in a particular consciousness but in another it doesn’t, then we are ahead from the limited understanding of the cycle of time.

    We are, but we are not. That is the main difficulty to understand. For an intellectual, that is illogical, it is not reasonable.

    The “I” exists but it doesn’t. When the “I” exists in our consciousness, then there is time (past, present and future) for the point of reference is the “I” NOW. Note, that movement in Life is constant, so “now” is not possible strictly speaking.
    When the “I” exists, there is predestination and free will; as both concepts deal with the ability of the “I” to act. There is that duality.

    When there is “I,” it is hard to understand how Life, the Drama, could be eternally repetitive.
    That “I” invents Success and Failure. Guilt and Pride. Nevertheless, it is contradictory for in a predestined Drama, there is no “I” that could act with his own volition: It is merely a script performed by someone. That one is compelled to act in a certain way. Thus, how is it possible for Brahma Kumaris to teach about “making effort” to “save yourself”? That is the catch.
    That is why, despite the fact of predestination, Brahma Kumaris supports the idea of free will: We make our “choices.” 🙂

    When the “I” is asleep, ignorant of the different forces influencing his activities… what kind of “choice” is that?

    Brainy individuals, someone who is stuck in their own mind; may not like the “concept” of predestination and the eternally repeating cycle of time.
    After all, that “nonsense” is not supported by science. The “I” thrives in his “free will” even though that free will, is mere conditioning for 99% of the “free” people in the world today.

    When “we move” into a different space of consciousness, little by little we could observe that there is nothing static that we could call “I.” We can put layers of traditions, social conventions and moral values into that “I” to make out of him, something static, unmovable, even permanent…. The “I” loves that!

    Everything that exists in the physical realm is cyclical, for it is in continuous change (Life is change.) How many permutations change can have? Many for sure, but it is bound to repeat itself.

    It is that repetition what makes “someone” eternal…
    Eternity is already “here.” Because we don’t perceive it, we look for it, we believe in eternal things only in the afterlife, etc.

    When the “I” is not, then time is not. If time is not, what is there? Eternity.
    But yet, we look for “salvation.” In the Brahma Kumaris world, someone believes that “he will be saved” if he experiences a particular “age” such as the Golden age.
    That is not accurate, for that “salvation” will finish as the cycle will move on. It is a matter of “time.” 🙂  Everyone has different experiences, none “better” than others, as one experience calls for another, automatically: Peace calls for war and war, for peace.  Different experiences, but complementary of each other in the world of duality.

    Someone who has the ability to see the future, is also seeing the past. Thus, past and future are the same thing in a cyclical view of time, and as expressed above, the “now” the present is not. No past, no present , no future.  What is there then?  However, there are times when “telling the truth” about the future is counterproductive to the evolution of a person and sometimes, it is important and even necessary, according to the “Drama.”( Unlimited vision.)

    A Being of light, could tell the difference for he is unlimited, a fortune teller; cannot.
    When we realize about our own nothingness, the mental concepts such as predestination and free will, could go out of our system for in the “unlimited,” there are no “good or bad” experiences; but only experiences which will help us in our evolution.
    As the Brahma Kumaris teaches: The Drama (Life) is beneficial. Even though many do not understand that, and want to DO something to be “saved.”

    For the common good.
