    Message 11: No punishment in Life 

    A childish understanding of the movie that we call Life, invents the duality of reward and punishment.

    There is no DOING of certain actions that will make someone “better” in Life.
    If I help a little old lady to cross a busy street, I am not making points to go to heaven. I am not DOING “good karma.” I am not becoming “better.”
    That is childish.

    If my DOING is driven by those ideas, I am only showing my ego.
    The truth is I AM a greedy, ambitious person. I am DOING an action not because I FEEL it, but because I THINK it. I THINK that I am gaining something for myself. The conditioning says that I must take advantage of that opportunity. 
    That is what we have learned in society, we applaud that. We teach that and label that as “good action.” We anticipate “reward points” in our Godly “visa card.” That inner dishonesty does not work in Life.

    What we DO to others, we DO it to ourselves.
    There is no reward system. No punishment needed. No little bed stories of “salvation” required.

      Hi. Yes, i agree. Doing things which are labelled as good and benevolent with a hope of getting rewarded does not make a person a benevolent one. Most of us ‘did’ service expecting our good karma to fetch good results. We felt justified as we considered it to be a part of following shrimat. But the question is – if, for any reason, Baba tells us that doing service does not really beget any fortune, are we still going to show the same kind/ amount of interest in doing service? 🙂 Whatever little help we offer to people without any expectations is the ‘real us’. Thanks for the article. Gayathri.

        Paradoxically, “Doing service” brings fortune to ourselves.
        It increases our ego.
        Baba may not say that, for without “service” others may not know about the BK movement and thus, lose their “fortune” to increase their ego before getting in the path to reducing it, for before it decreases, it needs to increase to the max.

      Brother, you are not being fair. 🙂 Here we have been assuming / believing that we had shed our ego and that we have become quite humble. Look at the way we serve! We face humiliations from our friends, relatives, and acquaintances and get challenged many times. But we have been serving the yagya without a complaint and with a smile. 🙂 🙂
      Anyway, of late, i speak only about how to lead a happy life, may be, i sound very practical (mundane?) and down to earth. I do not feel bad if others are not following or accepting BK philosophy; that is perfectly fine with me. Drama has its own plan/ script. Whether i like it or not, i can not change it. Sometimes, how i wish i could change the things to suit my convenience! 🙂
      Thanks brother for making me think out of the box. Regards, Gayathri.

        Baba knows that his children are lost in the duality of “good and bad.” To increase ego is not “bad” but necessary in Life. Part of the Drama.
        Thus, we can see the need of paths like BK.
        Baba’s children have the opportunity to increase “self-respect” in the BK path, but as they live in the mind, that opportunity tips over arrogance, self-righteousness and pride; which is not “bad” but necessary. Otherwise, how could we say that the “Drama is benevolent”?

        Facing humiliation and challenged is the price of defending our cause, what we consider to be “good for all” and others reject. That is the other side of ego.
        Our cause , our belief, our ideals… nothing but ego and more ego to defend.

          Hi Ahnanda, very well said. This BK path came in my life exactly when it was needed at the time when I had started considering myself as Zero because of being jobless for very long time. And then, Baba made my thinking like “I am a hero actor, I am a special soul, master almighty soul…and few more things” Well, it was long back around 7 years back.
          Okay, coming to the main part of saying “Thank You” to you for a message that you had given me in response to a comment. It was 5 to 6 lines:
          “Observing the experience as it is in the now and not wanting to make it better for future.”
          Well, this became my experience in past two months where I ended up losing my pervious job for wanting a better one. I have SOME job, but sometimes wanting better make us lose what we have in present that actually can be best if you accept that and betterment of our life drama’s future is never exactly known to us. 🙂
          Thank you Ahnanda 🙂

      Dear brother according to bk dharamraj is also in the drama and he has to give us the very same punishment over and over again every cycle ( every time we die DEPENDING on the number of births granted to us from the copper age so if I was given punishment it is everlasting punishment ( we have no chance of correcting ourselves (coming into existence play whatever role we have to play (eg. if I was a murderer subjected to Life imprisonment I’m already condemned to everlasting hell) as I have to play role over and over again and dharamraj also has to play his role like a CD so we came into existence Already condemned. 😂😊🤣and each and every soul has to become tamopradhan in the end whether they like it or not.(It looks to me judgment is over and we are condemned numberwise 🤔isn’t it.🙄🤔Could you tell me if this is possible🤔???

        Isn’t that a very masochistic belief? 🙂
        Christopher, we are living to experience. If you want to experience wild destinations where would you go in the world? Definitely Africa has to be in your plans. If you want to experience duality, where will you go? The Earth.
        My friend Mathias gave me a similar response sometime ago, which I am paraphrasing.

        Brahma Kumaris states that the “goal” is to be in the Golden Age, to experience non-duality. Nevertheless, those who have experienced the Golden age, will experience duality when their time arrives to experience the Copper and Iron ages. Note that Life does not give preferences. If you experience Summer that means that you had to experience Winter. Otherwise how can you experience Summer without knowing Winter?

        Religions tried to “solve this problem.” They became “Renunciates.” They thought:”I don’t want to experience pain thus, I must not experience pleasure.” Nevertheless, by denying themselves to EXPERIENCE, they are not living, they cannot have joy, vitality in Life. They can only “think” they do.

        You said: “We have no chance on correcting ourselves.” That is a conditioned vision of Life. There is no need for “I” to correct anything. Do you know why?
        Because that “I” is not real. It is a persistent illusion.
        LIFE (Drama in BK terms) manifests through “us.” There is not a time where that “I” has ever existed, but now that you mentioned, that “I” also creates the duality of “no-I.”

        Christopher: Explore “no-I.” That is where “salvation” from all of those beliefs systems resides.
        When “you” are not, “you” are.

    The Religious path of duality 

    Anything that a religious path chooses as an objective or an ideal, automatically will reject what is not included, for that is not part of the ideal.
    For example, if “Peace” is the objective, the rejection will be on those things which are not identified as being peace.

    To condemn something that is in the Drama is to reject it.

    That lack of peace is a “step forward” into “Destruction”, according to Brahma Kumaris knowledge. Isn’t this the way that the Drama has to bring heaven? Typically, this type of contradiction is unavoidable once we select one side of a duality. Then, a BK leader or follower talking about peace or condemning criminal actions will look dishonest, because their aim and objective is “Paradise, Heaven” and the means for it, is through those things which are rejected.

    Thus, when there is deep understanding that Life is not about labeling things to demonstrate our alliance or lack of, but rather to observe that anything that is happening has a reason to be there, to be present; then we could move forward with a different consciousness.

    Do not misunderstand me. I am not saying that war is “good” or criminal activity is “right”. I am saying that once there is this knowledge of the Drama and the cycle of time; there is no reason to label events and people in dualistic terms (good, bad, right, wrong, etc.) that is to foster separation, to be antagonistic of the “way of things”.
    Observe. Be a detached observer and enjoy Life as it is… That is without our conditioning and “learned lenses” to look at things.

    Therefore, to move forward means that “lokik and alokik” do not exist.
    “Shudra and Brahmin” are mental fantasies…
    Brahma Kumaris’ knowledge brings this element of separation through labeling.
    It is dishonest to say that someone is loving the world, when there is labeling to separate. We could use labels to identify through the shortcomings of language, but our feeling behind those labels will reveal our rejection or acceptance.

    That separation brought by society, religions, races, lifestyles, languages, customs, traditions, etc. due to misuse of the mind, is keeping our consciousness stuck, unable to change and open up, despite all spiritual teachings.

    It is paramount to realize that unlearning is what will move us forward.
    It is so contradictory to what the “office world” or a religion will want us to know. There is always information, teachings to learn so we could comply with the conditioning. Through this writing, I am merely exposing this for your consideration.

    A step forward in consciousness is always out of our comfort zone. It is not about becoming “somebody” in the afterlife; but to take away the layers of conditioning, to be “nobody” … now.

    For the common good.

      True. The religious paths in the name of removing layers of conditioning are actually adding new layers of conditioning. But that is necessary as it is part of the drama.

    Paradise is there waiting for "you" 

    What is the point of trying to go to a Paradise, if “you” as “you” are now, will not be aware of it?
    Are you aware that once you have experienced that, the experience will go away?
    Isn’t the main element to “go to Paradise” to be “soul conscious” in this Life?
    Are you going to BE soul conscious by DOING things? By giving knowledge? By DOING service? By following a “code of conduct”?

    Change of behavior due to some belief of the “I” has no consequence in BEING someone different.

    Do you believe that because you joined the Brahma Kumaris movement, you automatically will go to the Golden age?
    That is not so. Joining a movement and distinguishing yourself with a label has no relationship with “soul consciousness.”

    The “I” has to go away, for “soul consciousness” to appear. This will not happen by any activity the “I” could accomplish, for any accomplishments of the “I” is only a source of ego.

    Therefore, what is the fuss about going to “Paradise”? That is a tool sold to many.
    Certainly some will experience the first quarter of the kalpa, but to call “Paradise” to that experience is only a game of words, for if someone experiences the second half of the kalpa first, that person will be full, complete with that experience as well. “Sleeping time” is the difference in the “soul world,” and as we “know,” there is no time for souls.

    The game of “hurry up,” “now or never,” “you will regret it, if you don’t DO anything,” etc. is only a game for grown-ups.

    The best time is NOW. Enjoy it. Allow yourself to experience the experience, for what comes next is already there waiting. The idea that the “I” can change things through “good actions” is merely a belief. “Good actions” are relative. “Good actions” are not “good” when they are rehearsed, created in our minds; for those are artificial and nothing artificial is manifesting who you truly ARE.

    BEING changes automatically like a fruit becomes ripe in time. Ripeness is not “good.” It is just a state of BEING which appears after a process, a Life journey.

    BEING AWARE of that, will give us the quality of trust that we need to relax, unwind, take the time to smell the roses, for there is nothing “you” can DO to change what is already changing. BEING entails change, being aware of the process, you could enjoy it; for it is unique. There is nothing to rush for.

    “Destruction is just ahead.” Do you want to DO things to stop it? Do you want to DO something to “save yourself”?
    Are you afraid? Do you experience anguish?

    I thought you were an eternal BEING. A soul.
    How is that realization going to sink in? It has nothing to do with the understanding of the mind, with “knowledge.”

    For the common good.

    The Paradise “trick.” 

    If the Drama, Life, is all predestined and moves according to its inner intelligence of self-preservation through changes, and we are agents, to manifest those changes; then, how “I” can change “my” destiny to go to a place labeled as Paradise?

    That has been the trick of many religions. Here is a nice little place in the “future.” You can go there, all you have to do is “sign up” with us; for “we” are the “only ones” who can go there.
    Every religion believing in such place labeled as “Paradise or Heaven,” has the same “modus operandi.”

    “Now” is the time that you can “make effort” to go to Paradise.

    Never mind the many lives that you had before. Never mind the karmic consequences from so many births. Magically, the “law of karma” can disappear because God is doing his magic “now” and just for “you” Brahma Kumaris followers, because “you” are special, the “best,” etc. 

    It is not like that.

    Consider this: “Paradise” exists only now. It is an idea, an ideal. Yes, you had experiences, visions, etc. Because the place was so nice, you called it “Paradise.” For all I am concerned, you could have had visions towards the end of the Silver age. Who is there to say no?
    Anything better than “this,” the “now” is Paradise. Because it is a vision, we could dream about it. That is the “hope” to get you away from the “now.”

    Some news: Let us say that “you” were living in that vision. Let us say that “you” made it there. Here is something for “you” to know: “You” wouldn’t know that you are in Paradise. There is no way to tell. “You” wouldn’t know it is “you” for as explained about the soul, it will be just the Operating systems kicking in as the soul is empty, not “you.”

    The issue is too much “I,” “you,” “me.” The knowledge as interpreted by 99% of Brahma Kumaris followers, is an extension of pampering the “I.” That is not bad at all. It is necessary, but there cannot be self-realization through “I pampering.”

    It is the “I” wanting to change the Drama/Life to fit his own interests. That is the dream that every religion should fit to gain followers.
    The soul has many operating systems installed already. One polarity is called “Paradise,” the other “Hell.” However, every soul has that. Whether Brahma Baba goes to the “real” Golden Age and not “me,” is of no consequence. The bottom line is that “I the soul,” will experience my “Paradise” and my own “Hell.” Do we see that?

    But… my ego wants what Brahma Baba will have because it is “better.” That is the idea, the conditioning, the trick. Let me fight and get it… Let me DO something about it.

    There is no “I.” There is no choice but conditioned actions through the mind. The “I” is pure mind, thus “Raja Yoga.” The “I” separates from Life, the Drama.

    “Paradise” is a nice pampering for the suffering of the heavy “I.”

    There are 4 seasons in the year. Because “I” don’t experience Spring Time, it doesn’t mean that “I am less than.” It just means that your Fall will be my Spring. Who is who to say that some experience is better than another?
    Comparison is the ego centered ticket to your lack of awareness. Without awareness it doesn’t matter where “you” live… “you” will not notice it, “you” will be asleep… then “Paradise” is a nice dream to dream of, always in the “future,” never “Now.”

    For the common good.

    The Benefit of the Drama in Life 

    “Everything happening to us is accurate and beneficial. It is accurate because it is according to our karmic patterns. There will definitely be benefit in it which will get revealed later, and even if there is no outward benefit, we would have come out of the situation emotionally empowered, that is the inner benefit.”

    The above is an excerpt from a friend’s email.

    Observe that everything is beneficial. If you have “bad” karmic accounts that “you” are settling; then that is beneficial for there will be inner learning that otherwise, you wouldn’t have. That means greater insight, which translates into Life wisdom. This is not “theoretical” wisdom that can be put into some sort of “knowledge” for others. NO! This is inner knowledge. “You” know without using your mind according to some teaching. You have been through it, you have experienced it, you know.

    Look at the labeling: “Bad” karmic accounts.
    Through the above we know that this is not true. Yes, there may be suffering, but the end result is ALWAYS beneficial.
    Why?
    Because the Drama is beneficial for all. ( Murli point.)

    Therefore, if you go right. That will have benefit. If you go left, that will be beneficial as well.
    Why separate “right” as “good” and “left” as “bad”?
    Because the mind is conditioned with the perception of immediate “benefit” for “me.”

    Observe that “my bad” karma was the product of “my” doing, with the consciousness that “I” had at that time. That consciousness, however; is not “my” choice. It is a role.

    Observe your consciousness now. Even though, “you” know so much, you make “mistakes,” you open more karmic accounts…
    Why not be honest with ourselves and observe that even though we think we know, we don’t?

    Why not forget about all of those beliefs and self-righteousness about what is “good” and what is “bad,” in light of the understanding of the benefit of the Drama?

    “But destruction is just ahead, and I need to become “perfect” before then!”

    Observe this: “You” don’t know about yourself. “You” don’t know how to get to that heaven that you believe in. “You” don’t know how to be “perfect.” You only have beliefs and the support of more believers.
    Do you see the benefit of the Drama?
    It doesn’t matter if you go left or go right. You will get to your destination. It doesn’t depend on “you” for that “you” is artificial. It is merely mental conditioning.

    Brahma Kumaris is a method.
    Do not judge the method for failed predictions of destruction. That has nothing to do with its purpose.
    The purpose is to give extra push to believers. That is “good”!
    What extra push?
    The opportunity to ripen that ego.
    That is why, there will be dates for destruction as long as the “method” exists.
    Why?
    It is part of the method.

    Perhaps now, we can realize that Life does not depend on the “I.”
    The Drama is beneficial, therefore; “your” DOING does not matter for “your benefit,” but it does for the Unlimited (Totality) as the role is completed as it needs to be.
    Not as “I” want; but as it needs to be.

    For the common good.

    Looking at Gyan from a different consciousness (1) 

    1.) Paradise or Heaven: Gyan does not explain “polarity” in the open, but numberwise, instead.

    In polarity, we know that the experience of one extreme will bring the other, equally and with the same intensity. For instance, if my capacity to experience happiness is “deep,” my capacity to experience sorrow, will be “deep” as well and with the same intensity.
    In BK knowledge; Brahma Baba was the first “pure,” and likewise the first “impure.”  This is polarity.
    Note the word “deep” is only used in comparison with another, which is not accurate. There is no point of reference to compare to, but in BK Gyan; the word “purity” is used to compare individuals.  “Purity is numberwise,” it is said.

    Gyan has used the concept of “numberwise,” which gives a “ranking” based on “effort” at the confluence age.

    Brahma is not truly “number 1,” for everyone has a different capacity. We are unique, thus there is not possible comparison. There have been many beings of light before Brahma, many self-realized ones, before him, although that is not part of BK gyan. Why? Because the method in BK gyan entails to be a BK.

    Picture a room full of different kind of glasses. Every glass has a capacity to be full of water, which is equal to the capacity to be empty of water. This is polarity. Because there is a big glass and smaller ones, we cannot say that the “big glass is better, or number 1;”  a smaller glass is not missing anything. It will be as full as its own capacity permits.

    For instance, a Hawk has better vision than a Bat in daylight; but a bat does not need to have the vision of a hawk, for a bat is different. Then, why do we compare?

    Similarly, is with Paradise. Everyone will obtain their highest and their lowest. Our experience is unique. Some are bats, others are hawks. 
    Thus, to have “signed up” as a BK does not mean that someone is a “big glass,” or a “hawk.” It doesn’t matter what kind of glass we are. What matters is to be full, according to our capacity and because the “Drama is predestined,” eventually we will be full, but also empty. 

    Thus, “numberwise” is taught without the above in mind, which only brings out our greed to compete, to become “number 1” in the BK practice. Every soul has different roles to fulfill, without comparison. All roles are equally important according to time. Those roles are needed as they are in the Drama, so it can repeat itself, identically.

    “But… what about being a cremator in the Golden age, rather than a prince in my first birth?”

    That is a misunderstanding in BK knowledge. A soul (next topic) is who we ARE, what we DO is of no consequence, for that is what is determined in the Drama. We are fulfilled as a soul in emptiness. The role is of no consequence when we are aware of polarity. To believe that a “prince is better than a cremator in the Golden age,” just shows our understanding determined by our cultural bias of role conscious individuals, DOING individuals.
    BEING is not depending on a role. BEING happy is not depending on whether we burn corpses or sit around drinking mango lassi…

    For the common good.
