    Aware of the way of Life 

    Why God doesn’t stop evil in the world? There are many people suffering and God doesn’t do anything about it! Why?
    Why there are so many things happening in the BK organization and BapDada doesn’t stop that?

    Do you want to know why?

    It is simple. We are “eternal”  as Life itself. If someone is experiencing suffering, that is not the end. It is a process without an end. It is about experiences. It is “karma,” and that process will lead someone into a different experience.
    What is the need to interfere with that? Life is DOING it.
    Yes, feel compassion. That is the present, the “now.” That feeling acknowledges the situation, empathizes with the “actor” without feeling pity. However, any attempt to change things just to fit our biased and conditioned morality and beliefs, is truly violence. It is the “I” trying to change “what is” into what “I” think should be.
    If you ACT because it is in “you” and not because you are following some law or some belief, then that action is non-violent.
    Why?
    Because the Drama, Life is manifesting through “you.” “You” are an “instrument.”
    The word “instrument” is misunderstood. An “instrument” follows his gut feeling. It is not the “I.” However, that is very hard to “do” for someone who has been conditioned to Live Life at the mental level, he cannot live without that “I.” Therefore for “normal” individuals, to discern the “gut feeling” is very hard.

    The beauty of Life is that whether “you” act from your gut feeling (no-I) or from your mind (“I,”) either way is necessary as it is. The difference is in what comes back to “you,” karma… which is meant to eventually change as Life changes. Thus, the Drama, Life itself, is “beneficial.” It is a circle.

    Knowing all of this, what is the need for God to do anything? Our limited morality and conditioning does not allow us to see beyond the limited “reality.” We are caught up with the image of the hungry kid in Africa. We want to “send money” as the solution for their suffering. Humanity has created the problem and also the solution: Money.

    Obviously, “sending money” helps the sender feeling generous. That is the impersonal way to feel that “I am helping,” “I am good,” “I am earning Paradise.”

    FEEL them. Be with them. Give your time. Feel compassion not through the images of the TV, but allow for the experience of being there, to change you.

    “Are you kidding me?” I don’t want to leave my cushy job, my nice apartment, my comforts, my status to be with them…I’ll just write a check.
    That is fine. Just stop pretending to ‘help’ someone.

    Since everything is as it needs to be, what is the need for a God?
    Think about that.
    To give “you” knowledge? To give “you” salvation? To give “you” the Golden age? To give “you” miracles?
    How about, to give “you” ego?
    Thank God for that.

    Here is the “knowledge” in a nutshell: Life is a movie. It has already been made. “You” could be in the consciousness of the “actor” or the “spectator.” Enjoy the movie. It is unique. Everything that exists in the movie is eternal and recycles itself. That is Life.
    Life will take you from one experience to the other at the right time.
    Compassion and Love are labels until you feel them. The mind is our worst enemy when left unchecked.
    The rest may be either misunderstanding or tales for grown-ups. 

    For the common good.

    Question:BapDada, what is all about? 

    “Many things in the bkworld and the reasoning I am able to understand like trying to increase the ego,contrasting and contradicting things baba says in the murli, the various rules and discipline they advise to follow etc.I would love to understand your experience of ‘Bap Dada’ or Baba Milan….what it is all about…from your ‘new’ perspective…?
    Apologies for such a long rant…:D”

    Thank you for your well elaborated question.
    I can only speak about my experience with BapDada from the time I was a BK. Here is an article I wrote a few weeks ago about it.

    As I mentioned before, Brahma Kumaris is a path for “self-realization,” but it is not the “only true path.” As a matter of fact, it could be only part of someone’s journey as it was my case. Every journey is different.

    Yes, Ahnanda sees from a different perspective. That is your question relating to, but I cannot answer that, for there are many BKs who need to go through the BK experience without yet another belief. It is not a matter of coming with another opinion, belief or “truth.” Every single one of us has to discover that.

    Just as you have experienced in your journey. You explained that you did not read any of these writings until recently even though you have been receiving these writings from a long time; similarly, every BK follower needs to experience their own process. It doesn’t mean that “I have the truth,” NO! That is a misleading word, once you realize that our journey is very personal indeed.

    To be able to fully take benefit of the BK path as any other path, you may need to be 100% into it. If you were a “pukka” BK, you wouldn’t be reading these things. You could only have the openness to read these things if you aren’t completely satisfied.  BK knowledge calls that as “having doubts,” but there is a huge difference between mental doubts, which could be pacified with “answers,” and feeling unfulfilled. That is where inner honesty becomes important.

    As mentioned before, the BK path from my experience; is about increasing the ego, which is necessary before its dissolution.

    For those without the experience of ego, they may think that ego is about those things which make you feel “good” such as: “You are a deity, you are a true Brahmin, you are a selected son of God, you are angel, you are an ancestor soul, etc.” But ego also increases in the opposite side, as when someone feels “bad” because they didn’t wake up for Amrit vela, ate meat, had sex, watched mundane TV programs, etc. The labels then will change: “unworthy child, Silver/Copper age soul, cremator, shudra, etc.” That is a way to increase ego as well through the opposite side.

    Times have changed. Nowadays everyone could have different information about different religions and compare those teachings. In that, they may appear contradictory, everyone has their take on what God is or isn’t.
    That is why it is difficult to be 100% in a particular path to feel its full effect… and that is something that every religion will warn you about: “Don’t listen to anyone else but us.” That is until you are unfulfilled.

    The mind, the intellect could prevent us from experiencing the “ego trip” which is necessary for our development.
    For instance, I recall some intellectuals saying: “I don’t know how those people can join a cult and do everything they ask them to do. They don’t have a bit of discernment, critical skills…”

    Intellectuals do not understand the experience. I wouldn’t have joined the BK movement unless I had an experience with something unknown to me at that time, which my education and mental skills couldn’t explain. That was my experience with Brahma Baba. At that point, I surrendered my “critical skills,” which only help protect the ego, the persona, that “I” created through my beliefs and ideals.

    As “avyakt7” I had wonderful experiences with BapDada which helped me go through the BK path. As Ahnanda, I do not need those anymore, just as a child grows up and goes out of his father’s home. 

    Finally, I am not writing here to ask anyone to leave the BK movement. I am not here to ask you to stay either. I now see, that I am writing here to express my experience with inner honesty. The importance of not lying to ourselves. That is all.
    Intellectual knowledge is good, but not enough. Once we learn everything there is (knowledge) we need to unlearn it, to BE by getting out of the mind. That is the way of Life, the process, the journey.

    What I think, what you think is not what is important; but to be aware of our journey.

    For the common good.

      Beautiful article ! Though you didn’t share your ‘personal’ take 🙂 But it doesn’t matter…
      Probably have learned to see the unity and contradictions together…and rather then questioning it…marvel at it 🙂

          Hi Ayakt/Ahnand ??

          Don’t understand your fancy names !

          Read your article on “There is no fulfillment in the mind” about the intellectual/philoshpher, agree to most of it and also felt as if it was directed at me 🙂

          But just a question : Who are you ? an intellectual or philosopher or ??I know these are just labels, what comes closest to defining your writings?
          You say “A strong experience, something intense will change a person.” or in other words Life has to be lived not thought about intellectually, totally agree.But then why do you write incessantly, article after article…daily, multiple blogs…whats your motive…a livelihood or you think repeating the same things will make us all finally understand what you have experienced ?
          Please take it politely though it may not sound because of the type of question.

          Regards
          Vageesh

            For some, I am an intellectual. For others, a philosopher. For the ones who truly know me, I am none of those labels, but a life walker sharing his experiences.

            My “motive” is to share my experiences. I don’t know “why” I write incessantly. Perhaps, I have too much free time in my hands…. 🙂
            Oh… one more thing. These writings are not for you or for me… for us, all of us… whoever has free time to read them.. 🙂

          What do you exactly mean when you say “i”
          am not..
          ‘i’ is used to denote our own self, ‘you’ to the person in front of us, ‘he’ to a third person..
          what is your point ?

            Shalini the point is that what you have said is true for practical purposes…as a method of identification but we tend to carry the same feeling in our minds…as if ‘I’ am just myself..separate from anything else…existing almost in isolation and limited to just’I’…if you observe deeply you can see the unity of everything and that ‘I’ that we think exist actually doesn’t….sorry for being so contradicting and confusing..:)…just trying my best to express that feeling

              It doesn’t matter to me much…just a curiosity if tht feeling stays…( the seeker or greed inside me talking probably)….secondly u dismiss something as neo intellectual…at the same time indulge in something similar…. stands out … showing a bit of lack of compassion…which is strange… probably not inline with your writings…just checking is it something i won’t understand now or is there a lack of honesty or transparency on your part……hehe.

        Do you know that we are souls or you just believe that we are souls? Big difference.
        If you knew, we were souls… then to know that “I am not,” will make lots of sense… You want to know if romance is an illusion.. You will find out once you know if the one having the illusion, is an illusion or not. 🙂
