    The misunderstood “Maya” in Brahma Kumaris 

    The extent you know “Baba” so “Maya.” 
    The word “Maya” is one of the most misinterpreted or perhaps, the one with more interpretations in the BK ideology.
    For some, Maya is “illusion.” That illusion is interpreted as “vices,” or perceptions due to an inaccurate (sick) mind. For others, “Maya” is equivalent to “Satan” in Christianity, it is the antithesis of “Baba.”
    Some may say that everything is “perishable” except the “soul.” Thus, everything is “Maya” with the exception of the “soul” and “Supreme soul.”
    That is a “Maya” (illusion) in itself.

    According to BK knowledge, in Life everything is eternal but ever changing. That is a perception. For others, everything is perishable, except the soul. That is another perception. It all depends from our point of reference, our consciousness. Again, it is a matter of consciousness, not just some intellectual “truth” to accept.
    The big question for any seeker at one point of their “spiritual careers,” is this:

    Do I honestly go with my perception? Do I go with someone else’s perception and label that “truth”?
    For instance, I can know the “truth,” that the “soul” is eternal. Intellectually, I know that. I could teach that to others; but yet; when there is some sort of danger to lose my life, I will go on as if I didn’t know that. I will cry out, I will beg for my life, I will get all stressed out to save it.
    I could know that Brahma Baba was unmovable in front of danger. I want to imitate that, but the HONEST reality is that I cannot. That is the TRUTH.
    On the other hand, I can honestly go with my perception and live the experiences that come with it, after all; there is a teaching that I must learn.

    Is it possible for God to want me to be DISHONEST with my perceptions? If I go on and follow someone else’s truth then eventually, I will find all the repressions that I have done in the name of going to “heaven.” Could a repressed individual go to “heaven”?
    Life has its own timing. Those who are ready to become a Buddha or a Brahma Baba will obtain the necessary experiences for that. This is not a matter of “will power,” or a decision that “I want to be like that.”
    As a kid I used to like “Batman.” He was my favorite superhero. He was human. He did not have any “special powers” other than what some people already have (intelligence, physical prowess, money.) Nevertheless, I could not imitate him. After all, I am not “Batman.” There are many experiences that I need to learn as merely being ME.

    That is why, religions have added the element of “pressure.” “Time is running out. Now or never. BE what you are not ready yet. Get there quickly. Fake till you make it.” Eventually, that follower has the potential to either break down or become a fraud, an imitator.
    My question is: Where is “Maya” then?
    It is in US, yet we do not look there. We want “truth” elsewhere.

    To follow a path 

    If a path can be explained to others, if it has all the turns and streets mapped out for others to follow, is not the “only true path.”
    It cannot be. Life cannot be put into a philosophy or some dogma.
    Nevertheless, religious dogmatic paths also called “spiritual paths,” are necessary for without them a person wouldn’t be able to gain the necessary experience to “know.”

    A child needs the structure offered by parents. However, that structure cannot fit the Life experiences of an adult.
    Society dictates a path to follow. Our parents do the same, based on their conditioning. But ultimately Life, cannot be met from that perspective.
    It is a narrow perspective. There is more in Life.

    Life is a pathless path. This is overwhelming for those conditioned to look for security at every corner. These individuals are content swimming in their own backyard pool. They are not ready to meet the Ocean. Life is an Ocean.

    The Brahma Kumaris path is a valid path. Just like Christianity. Just like Buddhism or any other spiritual –“ism.”
    If those paths are taken to the full extent, they will show us our rejections, our repressions, our firm beliefs and ultimate our deepest fears. However, most individuals are not interested in “knowing” that. Most are interested in “having the truth, in being right.”
    If they are unable to see their own “truth,” what are they counting on having?
    Just a satisfactory belief. Something to talk about, discuss and defend. That becomes an extension of their own ego. Once the “ego trip” is over, they will be looking for something else.

    That inability to see their own truth, will be covered with all sorts of self inflicted falsehoods. That is inner dishonesty.
    Some day we may discover that any helpful path, can only take us back to ourselves.

      Dear Avyakt7
      Please share your experience about channeling and mediumship. Some oraganization and individuals claim challenging and other about mediumship. When asked at Brahmakumaris how God can come in individual person? They quoted a verse from Bhagvad Gita “Whenever there is decay of righteousness, O Bharata, And there is exaltation of unrighteousness, then I Myself come forth ; For the protection of the good, for the destruction of evil-doers, For the sake of firmly establishing righteousness, I am born from age to age” (ch-4 verse 7-8). I have read Bhagvad Gita and feel that it explores every aspects of life.
      Please share your opinion
      Regards

    Finding your “spiritual” path 

    There are no religions in the World holding the “truth.” There are no religions in the world with exclusivity of “God.”
    The above statement is the outcome of my journey, a new consciousness. That consciousness is not my own making. It happened because it was my time. There is no other “reason” beyond that.

    What I share, needs to be found by yourself. “Truth” is not a matter of belief or repetition of ideas. No matter who the authority is behind “enlightened” words, truth cannot be found there.

    There is no religion nor society who could quench the need of the egotistical person to have things under control. Security of salvation or a “high status” in the afterlife is part of a childish game to keep followers under control. Paradoxically, the one who looks to control, is the one controlled.

    According to our society, a Life without “achievements” is a worthless life. Nevertheless, a Life without popularity and recognition of “achievements,” is suitable for inner observation when our consciousness is able to feel a connection with everything. Without this connection, an individual will only follow yet another idea, practice or “method,” hoping that his goal of “self-realization” or to be “better” could be “achieved.”  “Spirituality” (The art of living Life in harmony) is not an achievement but a consequence. It happens. It is not “done.”

    No one has the “only true path” for every person is different.
    Become aware of your uniqueness, then your path will find you.
    We do not find our path. We slide into it.

    “Spirituality” through reading and memorizing 

    Avyakt7-NG is sharing that “spirituality” is not obtained by reading and applying concepts into our daily Life.
    That is only a good exercise for our mind. Nothing else.
    That traditional way of “learning” is only a conditioning given by our society. We could learn through that method what is needed to do well in a profession or a trade but not in change of CONSCIOUSNESS.

    “Spirituality” is the ART of BEING in harmony within and without. That cannot be taught through books, conferences, on-line classes, holy words of God, etc.

    Nevertheless, anyone following that path of “reading,” is a beginner in the journey and needs to be respected as such. Books/ holy scriptures are “good” but not necessary.
    Beyond “reading” and interpretation of concepts, there is OBSERVATION and ASSIMILATION of Life EXPERIENCES. Growth is through them.
    What do “I” OBSERVE? “MY” interaction. What “buttons” have been pushed. My feelings surfacing. My rejection. My beliefs. All of that is what makes up my “I.” All of that is continuously challenged by Life changes. The “I” will fight to maintain itself despite the obvious changes.

    Paradoxically, the environment is a reflection of that “I.”  It will show our traumas, our rejections, our beliefs, etc. But the “I” will not recognize them as such, but it will create a struggle, a fight to conquer what is out there. It is like a dog biting its own tail.

    Empty, open, grateful to Life… Those are the ingredients to understand without understanding.
    Thus, ‘true’ understanding.

    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.

    Godly ego 

    If you found God, what would you do with that finding?
    Would you tell everyone “I found God”? Is that all? Would you look for believers?
    Wouldn’t that make you special? An automatic authority, a “chosen one”?
    Look all the benefits you found by finding “god”!!
    That is the ego trip that followers do not realize until they become conscious of their ego.

    “God” only enhances their personality.  Just as when we say: “The president is a good friend of mine. He listens to me.”

    A wannabe believer may say: “Where is God? I want to speak with him. Ask him some questions and ask him to help me, save me, pamper me, solve things for me…”
    That is another ego trip.

    Let us say I get to speak with “God.” Let us say that “God” was shown to me: That enhances ME. I am SOMEBODY now.

    After all, it is all about ME.

    A religious follower may need to ask this: ” Am I DOING these religious things because I am looking for some profit for ME?

    In the Brahma Kumaris community, that could translated as: AM I DOING “service” so I can go to heaven, get a high status, make my kingdom, become an angel, be saved, become a powerful soul, etc?

    In the Brahma Kumaris there are many items to “accomplish.” Things to keep our minds busy. That is, many ego trips to travel before getting to heaven.

    BEING is before DOING. I could be DOING many “serviceable work” but it is all for ME. I may be opening many centers and proselitizing and experiencing hardships; without much to eat or sleep… but… I am DOING all of those things just for ME: I want a kingdom, I want to be know as a “serviceable soul,” I want to achieve heaven, I want to be SOMEONE now and in the future.

    That DOING is worth nothing. The merchant mentality, the business mind, is only thinking about personal profit in the material world as well as the spiritual. It is the same consciousness of “money back guaranteed” applied into “spirituality.”

    But, what can be DONE?  After all, that is the way we ARE (BEING.)

    What we ARE is what is worth “the same on Earth as it is in Heaven.”

    For the common good.

      Well said brother. This reminds me of the avyakt murli about thyagi, maha thyagi and sarva thyagi. Sarva thyagi is the one because he is embodiment of bestower, who is truly altruistic. he will not have any limited desires. This murli came as a series on the topic of renunciation.
      But the journey to reach sarva thyagi takes us to the stages of limited thyagis.. 🙂

    Question: How can one experience what one can only understand? 

    Brother Ahnanda has used BK knowledge may be to explain “Adwaita” philosophy, where God and you are considered as one, correct me if I am wrong
    I have come across such thing through some other ways as well, but never thought that BK gyan can also be used to explain same… Ahnanda is really a great thinker you know…
    But brother, theoretically it is quite easy to understand, but how one can experience such thing, like the “I” and “God” both as one? Because through you, to some extent I have understood that experience is what matter the most, right!

    Thank you for your question.
    Ahnanda says that “we” are all one. You see, I am placing “we” in quotes. There is no “we” in Life. In our society, there is a “we.” In our language, “we” need to use the word “we” for otherwise, there will be misunderstanding. Thus, depending on the game that you are playing, there is a “we” and… there is not. 🙂

    You are saying that “God and you (I) are considered one in some philosophy.”
    You believe that I have explained the same thing through BK knowledge.

    That is your misunderstanding.

    ONE.
    The Drama/Life is ONE. End of report.

    You say that Ahnanda is a great thinker.
    That is your misunderstanding.

    Weren’t you the one who wrote: “but tomorrow even if I get some of my own experience, my own realisation, my own idea, can I call it mine, can I really say that Dinesh has found it!! “ ?? ….. has any scientist created any law, has any enlightened being created any TRUTH! they simply came across it!!

    Paraphrasing what you said: “I simply came across that thought.”

    You ask, “how one can experience such thing, like the “I” and “God” both as one?”
    Obviously, when you come across it, right? 🙂

    You said: “Because through you, to some extent I have understood that experience is what matter the most, right!”

    That is your misunderstanding.
    In Life. there are experiences. Experiences are Life.
    The question is: Who experiences the experiences?

    The answer could be “I” but then, who is that “I”?
    A soul? A Spirit? A body? another label?
    No more labels! There is “someone” who experiences, but to experience you need to be AWARE, CONSCIOUS… right?

    Does awareness depend on “you”? How about consciousness?
    If it is not “your” idea, your realization, your experience (As you have said) and those depend on “your” awareness and consciousness… then, what depends on “you”? 🙂
    Right there may be the answer you are looking for. I will not spell it out this time, as it may be misunderstood. But..that is what I said through BK knowledge in the last article.

    For the common good.

    BapDada: When a religion defines what “God” should be 

    It is apparent that Life is full of “exceptions” to the “rule,” but yet when a dogma is more important than Life itself, then the mental dogma will rule over Life.
    This is an issue of seeing Life as a “black or white” matter of fact.
    This automatically will blind a person from seeing the many colors that Life offers.

    Why?
    Because is “secure” to see only 2 colors. If we call the color “White” as “good” and the “Black” as “bad,” we have made things easy for the masses to follow.
    Exceptions to that are not encouraged for any exception will take the follower out of the dogma. In a “subtle way,” we are expressing that a religion and its dogmatic view is most important than Life which is full of exceptions, full of colors.

    BapDada has “no choice” but to follow the script made by a religion.

    It is as when a Milk company hires a rock star to endorse its products.
    Even though the rock star may suffer from Milk intolerance, he has to say: “Drink Milk: It is good for you.”

    BapDada, as we know him now, does not resemble a bit the person/entity that is portrayed behind the Sakar Murlis. To believe that by following those words, a person will “go to heaven” is just a belief in lieu of knowing that every person is different and have different experiences. Reality is full of exceptions, the ideal does not.  Nevertheless, I truly understand that Sakar Murlis are a very important part of the BK method which is geared for the masses. There is no individual journey when we are dealing with the collective consciousness.

    Many could say: “Why BapDada does not oppose? He is God after all…”
    That question comes from individuals who only know their own little world and extrapolate their conditioning to everyone and everything.

    BapDada is not about “Action” now. BapDada is a detached observer. This is the time for the “children” to act, to change, to make up their own versions based upon their limited understanding,  to unleash their own little dramas etc. All is good. 🙂
    Because the Drama is predestined, BapDada knows what will happen.
    Thus, he relaxes, unwinds, says hello to the “children,” smiles with them, eats with them, asks them to raise their hands, gives them sweet words of encouragement, gives them homework… and once in while, he will pull their ears… That is it.

    The children’s expectation will be fulfilled. Everyone is happy!  🙂

    For the common good.

      Om shanti.

      I feel that BapDada knows if He tries to explain things that the old and new devotees are not familiar with, it would only confuse them a lot and they would not get much benefit from His present role of being a Guide. So, He works on the virtue/ sanskar of Love that the devotees have for God and makes it grow by showering more and more love on them.

      When people feel that they are getting love directly from God, they experience ecstasy. And then they strive to receive more and more of that love and protection from God. This love for God automatically gets extended to His followers, and to the Godly service so as to prove their real love for God. As a result, people get used to being loving, cooperative, humble, and serviceable to the extent they can. So, the end result will be good. Sanskars do change with time as the atmosphere needed has been created.

      At the end, whether what the people believed for many years may or may not have happened, but their sanskars would have changed greatly and very little of it could be reversed.

      This is how God may be preparing the future divine beings. This is an easy way of transforming people. LOVE is the instrument used. 🙂 God is a detached observer and knows that drama would take its own course irrespective of how and what is taught to the people.

      Drama / Life is predestined.

      Gita.

    Senior advice in BK 

    To give advice to someone is very tricky business. As a matter of fact, if you are concerned about “your karma,” and not “opening more karmic accounts”; this item of not giving advice to someone becomes very important to understand.

    A BK senior is a representative of the BK religion. In layman terms; he/she is a “salesman” pitching for “what is right” according to their beliefs.

    Advice should come as a consequence of understanding the individual situation of a person, not on how a person could fit a religion or the ideal of “right.”
    Moreover, those who know about the “eternal predestined Drama,” could give advice only when knowing what the future has for a person. This “fortune telling” trick is not a gift that everyone has.

    Without this important piece, any advice is plain “manmat,” even if given by a BK senior who has 50 plus years “surrendered” to the religion.

    I recall that a friend of mine had doubts about living in a center. She had doubts. She wanted to “do” the “right thing,” and asked a senior BK what she should DO.

    The response was: “You are already there. You made it.” That response was taken as “The senior responded to my question.”

    The reality was that her struggle continued. “Doing the right thing” has so many implications, especially nullifying Life experiences for the sake of following an ideal.
    “Doing the right thing” is truly lack of self-esteem. What you feel doesn’t matter.
    Nevertheless, according to our state of consciousness this practice of “doing the right thing” may be helpful.

    A child needs to follow brainy, intellectual decisions of his parents to make it in the world of the mind, the “office world.”
    As the child grows up, he could be conditioned to follow his reasons rather than his heart, but depending on his awareness he will do according to what he is, as long as there are no external fears biasing his “choice”.

    Similarly, a BK brother or sister is going through the stage of childhood, “spiritually” speaking. It is necessary to follow directions, to follow timelines and “do’s and don’ts”, even to have some fears of “not making it” to help into the BK conditioning.
    We may need to be aware that unless the child grows up, he cannot realize himself. He cannot know his potential.

    Following or not following will take you to your destination in the predestined Drama. If your DOING goes according to your BEING, there will be fulfillment. If your DOING is according to an ideal, you will be forcing yourself to DO something that you ARE not.

    Inner honesty is not necessarily about DOING the belief of what is the “right thing.”

    For the common good.

      Hmm quite deep and thoughtful… 🙂

      Ahnanda, I wanted you to write an article on “superiority and Inferiority Complex While on a Spiritual Path”.

      The reason I am asking you to write about this is that, in most of the paths you are frst told or given a belief or may be an understanding that you are a special soul, you have the potential to do great things in life. Like in BK gyan, Baba makes us realise first that you are the great souls of entire cycle. And as far as I have explored the Zen thing, they too say that you are already a Buddha, realize it first, you were just sleeping untill now, and That’s It!

      So that may bring a kind of superiority complex in a person, like a BK may consider others who are not in gyan as lower than him/her and same goes with other paths.

      And regarding inferiority complex, some people believe or say that people who want to achieve or become enlightened are suffering from inferiority complex, hence they are looking for something higher or greater in life.

      Regards,
      Dinesh C

    The perception of those outside the BK world 

    My sister, an ex-BK like Avyakt7; suggested to me to write about the significance and perception of those who are outside Brahma Kumaris Life.

    She mentioned that the stigma used to the ones who have left, is similar to the one of other religions. However, the main point is the showcase of a “God” with resentments, severities and negations.

    From that input, I could go on… 🙂
    Many are aware of the words of Sakar Murlis about how “God gets upset” when a child is gone from the religion.

    The knowledge of “predestination” and the “eternally repeating cycle” is forgotten at that time, to allow for condemnation and damnation.
    The strong disapproval is followed by some eternal punishment.
    That is the way of the main monotheistic religions, but Brahma Kumaris without a doubt, is even stronger in this severity.
    The negation of the “fortune” of the child which is known only by “God,”  is reminded, the labeling to discourage others is uttered: “Tamopradhan soul.”

    The label of “tamopradhan” soul is even stronger than “heathen,” which is used by mainstream religions.
    Without a doubt, fear is used as a tool to discourage other “children,” to look around and follow their heart.

    The other day, I was communicating with a BK friend and she mentioned that “Many BKs are angry at Avyakt7” and that officially, “Avyakt7 is a tamopradhan soul for those BKs.”

    I couldn’t help but laugh at those remarks.

    I wonder if that anger, is actually anger at themselves for their inability to express a different view, a different perspective.
    Isn’t that the anger of someone who has put their faith in avyakt7 to support their own ideals and beliefs?

    That is almost like a father who puts his expectations in his kid and when the kid decides to do something else, then the father gets upset, angry… The father is living his dream out of his kid. So much for “love.” So much for “respect.”

    Brahma Kumaris is a great path. A path for few although it has been “massified.” As we can see; we could hide our hidden agenda under those white robes. We could hide our own hangups and fears under the façade of a morality. We could be completely dishonest with ourselves for the sake of being complaisant to a “God” due to fear.

    A BK TALKS knowledge. A BK DOES service. A BK FOLLOWS a life style.
    But who ARE you? ARE you hiding behind those white walls of beliefs in “purity”?
    You see, to know that you ARE a soul, is completely meaningless… What you truly are is hidden, suppressed, repressed, negated.

    Do you see that?

    There is no doubt in my mind and experience, that what have been taught by Brahma Baba has been modified. He wouldn’t be a being of light (as he is now) if his personality was showing resentment, contempt and severity.

    That  type of “God” is a creation of human minds, as we have seen throughout history.

    For the common good.
