    Seeing the Drama of Life from “up above.” 

    Because of our conditioning, we look at things from our perspective and we believe that our perspective is the “right” one or the “truth.”

    For example, most believe that Brahmacharya (teachings of Brahma) or celibacy is about using our will power to repress sexual energy or to come up with “yuktis” (methods) to avoid sexuality. That is not so. Brahmacharya is not about avoidance, rejection or repression. If a Brahma Kumaris follower is repressing or rejecting his own sexual energy, that individual is not “practicing” Brahmacharya.
    Now, this is a new way to look at celibacy from mainstream.

    Similarly, we could look at the Drama of Life. Every Brahma Kumaris follower “knows” that it is predestined but there is more to it, that we may need to look at.
    Let me give an example.

    BK Anthony Strano died relatively young of heart problems, while being a Brahma Kumaris follower. Let us say that he picked up a virus during his many service trips to India as a BK follower.
    Let us assume that we knew about his fate 30 years ago. Absolutely sure that this will happen to him. 
    What would you do?
    The only way that information could be meaningful to us, is if we knew Strano, if we were close to him.

    If you were his relative, wouldn’t you do anything in your power to convince Strano not to join the BK organization or to leave it or ask him not to travel to India?
    Wouldn’t you think that Strano is “wasting his life” there as he will not achieve anything tangible for his Life? For most, having 3.5 kids a pet and an “office job” means “not to waste your life,” that is tangible.

    Here we can see the conditioning behind being a relative of Strano. In our mind as relatives, we may think that we are DOING the best for him.
    What about if I come along and tell you: “That is human petty morality. That is attachment.”
    Wouldn’t you be upset? And if things did not go YOUR WAY, wouldn’t you be against the Brahma Kumaris, perhaps blaming them for Strano’s fate?
    It is expected. However, look at all the REACTIONS to something that is PREDESTINED to happen.
    The experiences Strano had in the Brahma Kumaris were necessary in his particular path.  Outsiders will judge based on their conditioning, their perceptions. Strano made his “choice,” although it was his predestined path. Strano will move on into a different experience.

    Beings of light like BRAHMA BABA, look at things from that perspective; the “unlimited perspective.” What is in the Drama is what will happen, regardless of what we believe should happen or what we want to happen though our conditioning.
    That experience in itself (good/bad) is what changes consciousness in individuals, not a belief in the practice of some morality or the conditioning of some society/religion.

    From the above example, we discover attachment to the role of certain people (my friend, my sister, my father,) but even more subtle than that, attachment to our conditioning, our believes in what is “right” or “wrong.” That is how we may feel “rightful” in judging others.

    Every Life is being lived exactly as it should. Thus, when we ACT, do we use our conditioning to enforce our actions as being “right”? Or do we ACT because that is what is inside of us to DO, without thoughts, without the mind entering into the picture to bring a conditioning? In that way, what we ARE will certainly come out, raw, unconditioned.

    When an action is done through the conditioning of society/religion/morality etc. there is truly a “someone,” the conditioned “I” DOING things. 
    Here is the catch: Whether we act based on the conditioning of society or the role of the Drama, what is happening is what is supposed to be.
    What is the difference, then?
    The difference is if there is “I” DOING which will bring consequences besides strengthening ego, as our conditioning is not necessarily in harmony with the need of the time, according to the Drama. When there is no one doing, “No-I,” “we” are agents, “instruments” rather than DOERS. When there is an “I” there must be the consequences of the law of karma, when there is no- “I” doing; Karma is not. (Akarma.) That is a detached observer.

    Through our vision of the Drama from “up above” like a being of light, we could understand our conditioning and enjoy the movie of Life.

    For the common good.

    Wah Drama! 

    If Brahma Kumaris followers were to replace the word “Drama” with the word “Life,” they may see “Life” under a different perspective.
    This is the power of words.

    There is no law, but Life itself. There is no God but Life itself. Now, if you call that “Drama,” then we could understand why Sakar Murlis speak about the Drama as being even “more powerful than God.”

    Someone may have their little morality running their lives. Their little codes, values and precepts and commandments of Do’s and Don’ts, just because someone’s Life is being run by those external beliefs; it doesn’t mean that I am “righteous,” it just means that someone may feel at ease by conforming with their own values and beliefs. That is all.

    To be called a “saint” an “angel” or a “godly man” and all of those “nice words” that everyone becomes when dead, is meaningless.

    In Life, we can only be who we truly ARE. We are called to express that. However, the layers of conditioning are hiding our true selves.
    Many religions believe in placing another layer of conditioning in top of whatever someone brings with him. That is to hide through a “new” behavior, the traumas made by past conditioning. Those traumas will come out sooner or later and they need to be healed, in order to “Be yourself.”

    In Life, many times the impossible comes true. A belief in what “should be” could deny the expression given by Life.

    Most Human beings are concerned in labeling things as “good” and “bad,” not with the sole purpose of describing something, but with the intention to show rejection or distaste of that which is considered “bad.” Their value system, codes of conduct, morality, etc. do not approve what Life is presenting to them. It “should not be” like that.

    Observe that in the “Unlimited” (As BapDada would say in Avyakt Murlis) everything that happens is as it should be, that is “good.”
    In short, everything that happens in Life is “good.”

    That is a pill hard to swallow. Life is not about my little interests and beliefs; but it is greater; unlimited.

    In my experience, Beings of Light (Like Brahma Baba) deal with human beings appropriately thanks to the knowledge that they have about the Drama, Life. Basically, they know what will happen in Life in the “future.”

    Let us say that a loved one is destined to die because someone will kill her. A Being of Light will not tell me how to avoid her assassination before this happens. A Being of Light will help me to deal emotionally with the issue before it happens and after it happens.

    But why? Isn’t Brahma Baba or another Being of Light there to help me? Isn’t he my friend?

    All of those human concepts and cheap morality that we see in the Disney channel and Hollywood/ Bollywood movies do not apply to the “Unlimited,” to Life itself.

    To understand the Drama/ Life itself; we may need to decondition from all of those things which we consider to be “good, holy, valuable, moral,” etc. Then, flowing with the Drama is to be One with “God;” not because “God” is something different than Life, but because is the same thing. 

    To say “Wah Drama!” will not be just another “BK key word” to utter when something unforeseen happens.
    Wah Drama! will be an authentic expression flowing from the bottom of our heart at every heartbeat…
    Now, that is meaningful. 🙂

    For the common good.

      avyakt7-NG,

      The teachings of BKs projects that BapDada is the only being of light. There is also a promotion given to some selected senior BKs as advanced party once they leave their present body. It looks like BapDada hides the fact of existence of other beings of light from children or may be the senior administration of BKs modifies the original murlis to suit to the masses. I think for you, the experiences with mathias (a being of light manifested through a tree) has provided a better understanding of drama. From your experience, is there any other organisation/system in the world which is presently running under the guidance of a being of light? [If you feel that answering this question is unnecessary at this point then you can avoid answering it.]

      Thanks.

        Anil,
        Thank you for your question.
        BapDada for BKs is God himself. Under that label “God”, is the promise of “salvation.” BapDada does not hide anything. BapDada is defined by the BK method as my previous article mentioned. Without this “uniqueness” of Brahma Kumaris having God with them and only them becoming angels, their “method” will not work. I have mentioned from the beginning that Brahma Kumaris is a method to increase ego. If that is uncovered, what is the value of the method?
        The “children” and many others are so caught up with the word “truth” just like the word “God” and cannot see that those words are defining their own experience.
        The full experience of the BK method and not the “truth” is what makes the change in consciousness. I have said that, many times too.. but most readers will not remember that.
        I will write an article next time from your question.
        Best to you! 🙂
