    Is the knowledge of Brahma Kumaris the “truth”? 

    Probably many BK followers looking at this website may not resist in reading this article. The title is very eye catching.
    Followers want to make sure if what they are into is the “truth.” Nothing else matters.
    Followers want to make sure and jump in the bandwagon of “truth.”

    Avyakt7 believed through his experience and his understanding a few years ago, that what Brahma Kumaris teaches is the “truth.”
    While at that stage of consciousness, everything made sense and what didn’t make sense could be rationalized into something that did make sense. That was perfect! Having the “truth” is an ego booster and a source of tranquility knowing that “I am safe” in the afterlife.

    Now, Avyakt7- NG ( Ahnanda) has a different view.
    Ahnanda is not interested in “truth” for he understands that what we see, perceive and comprehend is part of the “role” thus “REALITY” depends on what we are “equipped with” for perception.

    “The body is perishable whereas the soul is imperishable. A total part is recorded in this tiny soul. It is such a wonder! Even scientists do not understand this. An immortal, imperishable part is recorded in this tiny soul. The soul is imperishable and his part is also imperishable.” SM 5/22/17

    For instance, now I can see that the body is NOT perishable although it perishes. Doesn’t make sense? That is because the cycle of time is not understood. The soul is imperishable, its part is imperishable and therefore, the body is imperishable for it is part of the role.

    I just corrected a Murli point. Look at that! Everything that exists is imperishable.

    Observe that our level of perception and understanding is different. Who is right? Who is wrong? Who has the “truth”?
    None of that is important. “Having the truth” is not important at all in Life.

    The “truth” may be important as some theory that needs to be validated by followers living in the mind, to make sense of an ever-changing world, but that is artificial.

    BEING does not change through understanding of some dogma labeled as “truth.”
    What truly matters is the AWARENESS of how everything is perishable: Ideas, truths, beliefs, perceptions… there is nothing that could last…

    Wait a minute! You just said that everything is imperishable and now you are saying that it is perishable! You are contradicting yourself!

    Yes. Do you see the “truth” in that? Does it matter?
    It is just a matter of perception. Do we see the “truth” in that?
    If the truth is a perception and perceptions change according to the location of our consciousness, then what is truly true?
    Food for thought.

    Brahma Kumaris knowledge is true for certain consciousness and false for others. Brahma kumaris knowledge is neither “true” or “false” for fewer consciousness… and that could be closer to the “truth,” although if only few can understand the above, then the “truth” could be far away… for most but not few.

    But…if “Few” can understand and “Most” cannot, it is obvious that “the truth” will be something that “Most” can understand… Even though the “truth” is in the “Few.”

    That is why a “best seller” or a “spiritual book” or “scripture” given for the understanding of “Most” is far away from the “truth” …  😉
    Food for thought.

    For the common good.

      Hi Ahnanda, reading and understanding your articles is always interesting but requires some time to grasp. 🙂
      I was an “Adhar Kumar” with BKs for 6 years, and I too had this kind of question that whether what I am following and practising is the ULTIMATE truth or may be there is something beyond this too. And that was mainly because of the reason that most of the practices seemed to me as if I am creating all that inside my mind, the talk with Shiva Baba, trying to focus on Shiv Baba for longer and all that.

      I find your articles quite paradoxical sometimes and yet quite closer to truth, I am simply trying to share what I feel about Ahnanda’s writing. At the same time, your articles have also helped me to come to a conclusion that yes there are many other things beyond BK system as well. Thanks for writing this Bro… 🙂 Om shanti 🙂

    Going beyond the repetition 

    Last article pointed out some shortcomings of disclosing “knowledge” to individuals.

    The cycle of time could be a painful “truth” for some when disclosed in Brahma Kumaris classes. The palliative medicine is “Baba has said 75% happiness 25% unhappiness.”
    Very few realize the core of the Brahma Kumaris method: The significance of the “I.”
    It is that “I” that most individuals perceive as a static, unchanged entity the “true” Maya. This “I” is only “real” at one level of consciousness. The Brahma Kumaris method is effective in increasing this “I” for the follower’s awareness.

    There is never a point in our lives when a static entity which we call “I” exists.  Even though it is easy to demonstrate this by just looking at the mirror every day, our awareness does not go deep into our consciousness to observe those changes in our Life journey. Our memories are what binds together the illusion of being the same person, the same “I.” Without memories, what can we call “I”?

    Please contemplate the last phrase.
    Memories are necessary in this lifetime, so we can play the game in society: “I earned 20K per year, 10 years ago. I earn 35K now.” We call that “improvement.” Who is improving? “I.” Nevertheless, the person now and the one from 10 years ago, both are different, they have different consciousness. Memories are the only link.

    That memory becomes a source of fear in Life when we believe that “I” will experience the same thing again, but the one before the experience is different than the one after the experience.

    We ARE not the same. Yes, the soul is there as an empty container, but the movie giving us consciousness will be totally different. That is why, there is no one in this Life going to Paradise in the future. Am “I” going to heaven? NO! “I” will not be there. The soul maybe there, but it will have a complete different “software,” different consciousness. Is that “I,” ME?
    NO.

    When we “die” and take another body; typically, we will not remember our last Life. Have you noticed that?  Lack of memory means newness.
    That is how newness will appear “again,” in that empty container which we call “soul.” Therefore, after a cycle there is no memory of what we went through in this Lifetime. Where is that “I” that will go through the same exact experience then?
    Nowhere, but in our imagination now.

    We are so attached to those memories which are giving us identity. 

    To explain the cycle of time could be hurtful without the understanding and hopefully experience of “No-I.”
    That is why it was said in another article: Who are you?
    I AM and I AM NOT. Both at the same time.
    However, “No-I” is not part of the Brahma Kumaris curricula, for their method is meant to increase the “I.”

     
    For the common good.
