    Message 9: Purity 

    To choose “right” over wrong.
    To follow a spiritual code of conduct.
    To have distaste for sex, meat and body consciousness.
    The above is not purity at all. It is compulsion.

    “Right and wrong” are conditionings of a society. We need to respect those limits for there are consequences; that is all.
    BEING and allowing for change, is the spiritual law.
    Sex, meat and body consciousness are part of Life. We may choose not to engage with those, but that is not purity.

    Purity is the unconditional acceptance of all that Life has to offer, with innocence; like a child. Humans have lost their innocence. They may pretend to be like a child to gain benefit from it. It is a thought-out activity, a political game.

    That innocence of a child, comes from lack of knowledge of the dualities that Humans have created in Life.
    A self-realized being has that innocence, despite knowing about duality. That purity cannot be taught to another.

    Message 8: Imitation of Being of Lights. 

    A being of light (angel) has been seen to be made of white light.
    A Brahma Kumaris follower, dresses in white.
    A being of light is one with himself. Sexuality is not needed in that realm.
    A Brahma Kumaris follower does not engage in sexual activity.
    A being of light does not need to eat. However, they may be seen in scenes while eating.
    A Brahma Kumaris follower believes that food needs to be “pure,” meaning; only prepared by followers following all (believed) standards of “purity.”
    A being of light does not need to sleep.
    A Brahma Kumaris follower is encouraged to sleep as little as possible. The example given is of Brahma Baba who could sleep only a couple hours a day.
    A being of light is incorporeal. It is believed that God is incorporeal.
    A Brahma Kumaris follower is taught to forget his body. That is their understanding of becoming “incorporeal” from “body conscious.”

    Copying other beings does not make someone a being of light. When consciousness lacks, imitation is dangerous.

    To deny who we ARE now to imitate what we ARE not, is to deny ourselves, our nature, Life. That is to deny the gift of being alive: BEING “Now.” We are human beings: Acknowledge it, experience it, become fully aware of it, for it has its own time.

      Hi Ahnanda, really amazing message this time. One thing came from my mind while reading this is that there is one hidden third aspect of this message too. For example, this message is written as geometric proof like “A=B” “B=C”, therefore A=C. 🙂
      And one thing I would like to say from my same relevant experience is that we imitate Sr. brothers and sisters a lot if we are serious about following BKs. Then appears a higher and lower, good and bad, right and wrong. This imitation is also a reason for these labels, I mean according to my understanding.
      Thanks for writing this message, Om shanti 🙂

    Message 7: Predestination and the Cycle of Time. 

    For some consciousness, we are all ONE.
    Who is predestined then?
    That ONE changes through its full range. That is known as the “cycle of time.” If there wouldn’t be any change, then there wouldn’t be any movement. Without movement, there is no Life.

    Because there is Life in that ONE, then it changes.
    Who is predestined then?
    When that ONE is divided in many. Then “I” appears. Then “I” will be sleeping in the belief that there is free will or predestination for “I” cannot see the ONE.
    It is all appearances, illusions when we look at things from the “unlimited” from the ONE.  Is god the ONE?  I am not referring to that one. I am referring to Everyone.

     Predestination is for the many. “God” is predestined. “We” are predestined. Although, our consciousness says that we have “free will.” Believe in whatever you want. Even in the “I.”

    What is the value of knowing about predestination?
    Little. Unless we are ready to OBSERVE, for then we will not be caught up with definitions, concepts and thought.
    Most don’t want to OBSERVE. Most want to believe in the “truth.”
    Do you want to hurt the “I”? That is predestination.
    Do you want to pamper the “I”? That is free will.

    Oh, truth seekers! Where is the truth that you shall find?

    Find the “reality” of the “I.”

    • Dinesh C 12:33 PM on February 28, 2018 Permalink | Reply

      Hi Ahnanda, the question at the end is really wonderful but “I don’t know, how to find the reality of this “I”. I mean my current understanding is that, I want to find the meaning of this “I”, I mean if I desire about something, unless and until I don’t fulfill that desire “I” don’t feel the substantial meaning of my “I”. sometimes I feel it’s ok the way life is you know, just carry on with acceptance, but then again the external pressure, no no no, how can you be so relaxed about life, we have struggled so much in life, life is not meant to be relaxed, the “Others” also contribute for creating that desire of “Meaning of the “I”. But I personally don’t feel there is any useful meaning of this “I” through fulfilent of desires. 🙂 Thanks for writing this message Ahnanda 🙂 Om shanti.

    Message 6: Keep water and food for 6 months to 1 year 

    Some readers have sent me the latest BapDada’s message: “All centers needed to have 1 year of supplies at hand.” That was one version. Another: “Keep a stock of food, water and supplies that can last for 1 year in every centre;”and then another: “BK brothers and sisters need to keep some food and needful items safe for upcoming 6 months to a year, considering future conditions.”

    Probably most BKs believe that these are signs of “destruction just ahead.”
    First, note how a message degrades as it is shared and interpreted. Second, notice that the conditioning of “destruction is just ahead” is very strong and it produces fear in BK followers or even ex-BKs.

    It is a sound advice for centers to keep a stock of food and water for a long time. Natural disasters are part of Life and it can happen anywhere at any time. As time continues we will be more aware of these incidents. Overpopulation and lack of care of our natural habitat, has its consequences.

    Please do not take things out of proportion. Enjoy your Life “now.” This is the time for that.

    Message 5: The Riddle of liberation 

    Avyakt7 had the chance of a personal meeting with BK Dadi Janki, back in 2005 through a GCH sister, who translated the conversation; while Dadi was visiting Peru.
    Dadi said to avyakt7 among other things:  ” You are a victorious soul.”

    Do you see the relevance for all BKs of that statement?

    A shrewd intellect is required.   
    Otherwise, most will believe that avyakt7-NG  is only tooting his own horn.

      Dear Ahnanda, your smaller messages also have very deeper meanings, the articles that you are writing on avyakt7.com are so connected to our day to day life problems you know, whether it is acceptance and patience, or just noting the humor in our lives, you are an inspiration for me 🙂
      Can you please briefly write a message for difference between Ego and Self respect, Swa and Swaman 🙂
      I recall me remaining in awareness about a point of experience that BKs taught me, they said when I am in Ego I will be hurt and when I maintain my self respect, I will be stable and unaffected 🙂 Well my experience of this point was 50-50, can you please throw some light on it bro, thanks a lot for your writings, Om Shanti 🙂

    Message 2 – Blessings and Ego 

    Q: ” I have seen many BKs who try to portray them as good persons before others through their behaviour. I was also one of them. At that time I felt that through my behaviour and good actions i will earn blessings from others which helps me to change my stage. Is that also part of growing our ego?”

    I bless you for asking that question.
    You weren’t expecting my blessing. Thus, it is a “true” blessing on your way. But if you DID something with the expectation to receive a blessing, then you are not ready to receive the blessing; thus, it will only be a nice phrase that will serve to increase your ego.

    If you DO actions to receive blessings, you will definitely increase your ego. But that is not “bad,” when you are walking the path to increase ego (whether you know it or not) so later, you could walk the path to decrease it.

    Message #1 

    From now on, brief messages.

    Writings will be short from now on. You can still write questions if you’d like concerning the Brahma Kumaris.

    What “makes” a person humble?
    To dress in white? To have few saris/kurtas to wear? To possess less material things?

    We can use all of those symbols to feed our egos.

    We can only BE who we ARE. To try to dress ourselves up with some performance, of who we AREN’T is to be dishonest with ourselves.

    “Spirituality” can only BE about acknowledgement of who we ARE. That observation, that awareness, that acknowledgement without judgment, will bring change without trying to change.

    That in fact is “true” change.

    For the common good.

      Hi every one. I also would like to thank Ahnanda for his contributions. His writings enabled me to perceive things from a different perspective. It made life easy… easy to face things.

      Regarding our favourite topic, ‘ego’ – yes, i am able to notice it in me … at various levels.

      When i look back, what all i have practised in order to lead a virtuous life, might not have changed my consciousness much, but i notice that in the process i had learnt a few lessons be it from the good company that i maintained or from my own mistakes. Maryadas and good company provided me with opportunities to change.

      Thanks dear Ahnanda bhai for all the help you rendered.

    The mind and its extremes in BK Life 

    One of the characteristics of a person being utilized by his own mind, is that he will go to extremes as part of his beliefs and ego needs.

    Brahma Kumaris will offer that experience, but if we are not AWARE, we will miss the chance.
    For instance, a follower who has believed in Brahma Kumaris for a long time and has invested resources to support his belief system, is going to “teach others” as he will believe that he is DOING good to others or that he is BECOMING someone “special.”

    The ego needs a way to expand. “My beliefs are TRUE therefore, I am helping others who cannot see what I can.” This sort of grandiose is only showing ego. A person who is UNAWARE, will not notice such pretentious life. It is no longer about “self-realization” but to “self-realize others.”

    Let us say that this person gets disappointed and leaves the BK system. More likely, if his ego is starving for recognition; he will go to the other extreme.
    Now, he will preach “salvation” from the BK system.
    Observe that this person is DOING exactly the same thing, but in opposite direction.
    That is a DOING of the mind.

    Most of the time the extreme is proportional. That is, the deeper we go on one side, the mind will go into the other at the same intensity.

    Observe that Brahma Kumaris teachings are of no consequence for those who are AWARE. What matters is to observe “ME,” to observe how is it possible to believe on having the TRUTH just to go to the other side and deny it, but still saving face as a “SAVIOR” in both instances.

    It goes something like this:
    “I believe in BK teachings. I AM good because I spread them. A few years later: I don’t believe in BK teachings. I AM good because I am saving others from it.”

    We are not aware of the dualistic mind.

    Isn’t “self-realization” what “spiritual” seekers want?
    How is it possible to pass the opportunity to observe their own mind?

    The conditioning is great. As a BK, we see Life as “good or evil.” (duality.)
    Out of the BK experience, still the same duality exists. The EGO perceives that “I was wrong,” so the way to make things “right” is to go against what was embraced before. I must redeem myself.

    In “spirituality” there is no such a thing as “God realization.” But when “the others” is very important in our Life and our dependency is great; then “god realization” weighs more than “self-realization.”

    Also, there is no such a thing as “DOING service.” You ARE therefore, that is what is serviceable or non-serviceable. To DO a recipe of things believing to be the “right” thing, despite not BEING congruent with that DOING, is lack of honesty.

    Any follower who is expecting for words to show them “truth,” is kidding himself. If those words aren’t according to my experience, I am lying to myself.

    The original teachings of Brahma Baba through his experience have been changed. There have been many people (leaders) putting their hands on these “teachings.” This is a frequent experience when regular people surround someone who is in the process of changing his consciousness at a different level. These followers are more concerned in spreading their “truth” and making it available to the masses, rather than learning themselves from that unique experience of witnessing someone closer, going through the process of self-realization.

    So why Brahma Baba does not show up and take a stand against those BKs who are misinterpreting his teachings?

    Brahma Baba had his chance to act. He did while “alive.” Now, others have the opportunity to act as well. This is not about “making things right.”
    That is a human limited vision based on a strong conditioning. In the unlimited, it is about the experience that will be able to change consciousness. To allow everyone to “act” as they need to; for at the end of the game; we know that in fact it is a predestined game, and everything will be as it has to BE. What is “good”? What is “right”? Obviously what is happening in the Drama / Life. Therefore, nothing is “bad” or “wrong.”  Do we have the openness to consider this?  Many like to throw their human morality into the picture and then want to be self-realized at the same time!! This, does not mean either to be “immoral.”  Let us not go to the extreme of mental dualities. It just means to have acceptance, amplitude, “open mind,” to appreciate things beyond our narrow intellectual perception, our “black or white” illusion of a world full of color.
    Therefore, OBSERVE your own game. Become AWARE of it… a “detached observer” of it.  

    For the common good.

    Tags: appreciation, Baba's remembrance, BK, , enjoyment, , , , , , yoga of the mind   

    Question: Why sometimes that thinking which I observe overpowers “ME” and I end up doing something I didn’t want to? 

    Thank you for your very good question.
    The last article about Brahma Kumaris remembrance is one of the most important produced in this website. Nevertheless, it may not be understood in that way by many readers. That practice of BK remembrance is a “trick” to get out of the current events of the mind. It is a necessary “trick” if awareness of the workings of the mind is lacking.

    For instance, if you were a BK; then you could just “remember Baba” and follow some safe script (Maryadas, for instance) so you do not get in trouble and you don’t experience regrets later on. In that “safety” you don’t live Life. That is the price. Nevertheless, the issue with the mind remains. The unobserved conditioning is there. It may leak little by little.

    Dinesh, Congratulations! You are ahead of the game in observing your mind. You realize what is happening. You realize that many times these thoughts could be repeated and we cannot stop them. You realize that these thoughts many times, make us “do” things. A person suffering OCD (Obsessive Compulsion Disorder) is a good example. Repetitive thoughts will force the person to perform a task that the mind believes to be safe or necessary. There is a specific number of times that a repetitive action or “tic” needs to be performed. Because that person is unaware, that person is a prisoner of the mind.

    The answer of your question resides in living in feelings rather than the mind.
    That is another reason why BK meditation stresses feelings of love for Baba. Even though, “Baba” is not an experience for many. They merely visualize him and make up a circumstance to feel “love” so they can get out of the mind and its current trend of thoughts.

    My friend Mathias told me that the mind is a “prisoner” of time. It cannot perceive the small changes in Life. Even though, there is continual change; the mind does not see that. The mind is “BORED” or stuck in time. It is as if the mind is stuck with a picture which does not allow us to APPRECIATE the movie of Life.

    When we are sitting comfortably appreciating our Life (new form of meditation) by becoming AWARE of all the experiences that we can experience within our body in the “now”: From moving our legs and walking to breathing at ease and peace; when there is a feeling of appreciation as we continue on living, that “feeling good” dispels the dictatorship of our mind. This is not a “trick” unless you purposely “practice” to “feel appreciative.” The experience reside in you and not in someone else’s appearance or “remembrance.”

    Many times, we could be in a place infested with recurrent thoughts. We will catch those. The easiest way to finish that situation, is to get out, to go for a walk outside and OBSERVE the difference once we come back.

    We are surrounded by the energy of thoughts from different sources. We just need to be AWARE of those rather than call them “MY THOUGHTS” or try to figure out where they come from? Who originates them? What is the purpose of those thought? Etc. That intellectual nonsense is only noise of the mind, for the mind will never “know” the answers through experience. It can only have BELIEFS.

    As our FEELINGS take over our BEING, then the mind will move into a second plane.

    At this time, the minds of most people; are the masters. They can only display conditioning and regurgitate what has been “learned” to comply with that role. That is why, mental diseases of all sorts are affecting many at this time.

    Thinking kills your feelings. We cannot APPRECIATE and ENJOY Life unless our feelings are alive.

    For the common good.

      Hi Ahnanda, thank you so much for responding to my question bro. I remember doing one meditation pratice where we had to lie down and relax and thank each and every part of your body, starting from feet till head. And then in between create a feeling of “YES, YES, YES…”. I have done that only once till now. But it feels awesome for a very long time after that. 🙂 Thanks again bro 🙂

        Well, I came again to share one more thing that I have been observing, the mind actually ends up creating a fictitious story within itself, a story for far beyond future, and if the observer doesn’t know that it’s from the mind, he simply ends up following the mind, without even thinking whether he should follow his mind or not. That’s what has been happening with me you know, I kept on following my mind, always trying to make its stories as a true thing, but never could, because the drama is already made. Now I understand to some extent what’s the meaning of Ahnanda’s statement where he says, “When drama is there, you are not there, and when you are there, drama is not!” AM I right Ahnanda! 🙂

          The mind is like another person giving us advice on what to DO or believe. We identify with the mind as “Me.” The mind seems familiar to us for it is a repository of conditioning and past experiences.
          There are many ways of interpreting “when the Drama is there, you are not there, and when you are there, Drama is not.” Yours is a valid one. What matters is to understand through our experiences and not to the use our mind/intellect to deduct a meaning.

    Remember ME alone 

    In Brahma Kumaris’ Sakar Murli there is a phrase that although spoken frequently, it is misunderstood. “Remember me alone.”

    Brahma Kumaris offers “shortcuts” to deal with the mind. Brahma Kumaris is ultimately from my experience, a path to try to transcend the mind.

    One of the “methods” used is remembrance also known as “yoga.”
    The mind could bring thoughts which if not observed, could change the mood of a person. We could have so many thoughts that could even make our life hard to live. How do we deal with that? Remembrance is the BK answer. For in that method rather than BEING a DETACHED OBSERVER of those thoughts, we need to change them into something else: Visualize Baba in the subtle region. Visualize ShivBaba in Parandham. Use your mind to create another setting. Use your feelings (love to Baba) to make that experience into a “blissful one.”

    Without a doubt, it is a method to deal with unwanted thinking. But at the same time, there is control of the situation by this “I” who is not willing to OBSERVE and LEARN but it is only concerned to change things momentarily. That is why, to have “yoga” is never ending. A mental process with made up feelings, is a palliative solution.

    We cannot BE a DETACHED OBSERVER and at the same time try to CONTROL things in our inner world.

    What are you going to remember? What is the remember me alone?
    It is an idea, a mental construct of what God is or should be. For others, it is a re-creation of some past experience. Some subtle experience they had. Yet for others, it is about some “future” experience in the Golden age, etc.
    OBSERVE that those types of remembrances are only about the mind (going to the past or the future but never to BE present.)

    That type of method is like watching the same movie over and over again to escape from the menace of the mind.
    In a nutshell, REMEMBRANCE is a trick to deal with the tiring mind. CONTROL is artificially made, by changing the thoughts once we become AWARE, thus; the importance of REMEMBER BABA ALONE ALL THE TIME- for most are UNAWARE of the mind.

    In the AVYAKT Murlis, BapDada used the words ”Detached Observer.” There is no such a thing in the Sakar Murlis.
    To BE a detached observer, the mind should BE as it IS. OBSERVE it. It is not YOU creating that mental “show.” Once we become identified with that thought of being “mine,” there is no longer observation.
    A way to describe that observation, is by saying: REMEMBER “ME” ALONE.

    When we are centered in BEING there is no ME, but we ARE AWARE. THAT AWARENESS IS DETACHED, thus a DETACHED OBSERVER.

    In a nutshell: “Remember me alone” as understood by the majority of BKs, will not allow us to OBSERVE and Learn about our inner world.
    “Remember me alone” as understood by the majority of BKs, is not consistent with BEING a DETACHED OBSERVER.

    In my experience, to “REMEMBER ME ALONE” could be more closely put in words if we follow Gurdjieff teaching of “Self-remembering;” however; SELF is not truly there. In a sense it is INNER AWARENESS.
    There is a CENTER which is called as “self.” Through that center, there is OBSERVATION. Thus, a detached observer.

    Is the BK teaching of “remembering me alone” of the Sakar Murlis, “wrong”?
    There are not “right” answers, but your state of consciousness will dictate when something rings a bell for you. The BK path of the Sakar Murlis, is a starting point for a seeker. The Avyakt Murlis, is the next step in the BK path.

    For the common good.

      Hi Ahnanda, well I just wanted to share my experience of Vipassana meditation, there are quite long moments where the mind brings and UTTERLY GARBAGE thoughts and visualizations. Total nonsense, if I would not have learned to watch the mind, I would have been at a mental hospital, thanks to “ME” the watcher of mind 🙂 But why sometimes that thinking which we observe overpowers “ME” and I end up doing something I didn’t want to and realize it later and after that you know the story of regrets and self guilt 😦 Can u please throw some light on this bro, PLEASE.

      Another thing that comes from my BK experience is that they tell u to be detached observer of the drama happening outside more, watch the role of others, don’t judge or involve the role of others, and not more about watch the GARBAGE running inside 🙂

      But sometimes watching the mind is the most difficult thing man 🙂 and by the way I have heard Gurdjieff’s name a lot from Osho 🙂
