    Rephrasing the answer: Who AM I? 

    Brahma Kumaris is the path of the intellect, by extension; the mind.
    The mind is happy with concepts, definitions. The mind is OK with a promise of something “good” in the future.
    If Brahma Kumaris promises the follower to be SOMEONE, I wonder how the question asked in the first day of class of the “6 day course, “ WHO AM I? is related.

    Basically, it comes down to this: You are a “soul” but you will be SOMEONE in the future.
    What is that SOMEONE that Brahma Kumaris promises?
    A deity, an angel, etc. etc.

    The word “soul” is merely a concept. The mind accepts that concept for it is insurance for the afterlife. Most individuals are not feeling at ease by knowing that we have a limited time. We will die. This consciousness of what we think to BE, will perish, disappear.
    The ego-mind, wants to continue on. The IDEA of BEING a soul brings that soothing relief for: “I am eternal.”

    However, who is that “I”? Most will not get this question. Even though BapDada has mentioned in Avyakt Murlis.

    Right now, we are merely a role. That is the “I.” That role will disappear, will change.
    If “I” am only conscious of the role, “I” could believe that this is the “I” that will survive eternally. It is not like that.

    Therefore, to be “soul conscious” is to go beyond the roles. Paradoxically, going beyond means to go beyond becoming SOMEONE in the future, for that is only a role.
    Do you see where I am getting at?

    WHO I AM? IS NOT the role. Is not the IDEA, the concept of being a “soul.” It is only to observe who I am “NOW.”
    Do we observe anger? Do we observe detachment? Those things “I AM.” It is in the realization of that who I AM, how change happens, transformation occurs, without DOING things to AVOID that who I AM, without using my mind to separate the “good from the bad, what “should be” instead of “what is.”

    The “soul” contains all the roles. Without a role we are NOBODY. Do we see that?

    I am not a soul.
    I am not a body.
    I am nobody.
    Yet, when we are unable to discern the roles playing, we believe that to be ME.

    When we are deeply sleeping, who are we? Is the “soul” sleeping?
    When consciousness appears after sleep, is that out of my own will?

    But yet, we feel that we KNOW because we repeat: I AM A SOUL, not a body.
    But yet the body is what our consciousness actually discerns as BEING ME.
    Perhaps a mirage, an illusion but that is “what is,” right now.
    Why deny it? Why go with an idea (soul) to reject what it is obvious?
    Here is when HONESTY will take us into a different direction. Acknowledge your consciousness. That is where you ARE. 

    Once our OBSERVATION increases, we will realize that using the concepts of soul or body, will not allow me to observe what is going on inside… that is what I AM NOW.

    For the common good.

        There is an explanation in the first lesson that Soul works through three faculties, namely, 1. Mind 2. Intellect and 3. Sanskars (Personality traits), but when I kind of realized that Soul is experienced beyond the all these three, my perception has changed quite a lot. I think Mind and Intellect involve a lot of prejudice and duality, confusion sometimes, but if we want to realize our true self, we should try to go beyond that 🙂

    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 🙂

    Goals in Life 

    Hello Bro Luis , i actually want to post question cud not find out where i cud type it, hence i am using this space. Well ,Live life meaningfully , have a goal , What does it mean ,for a normal person what can be the goal .Once you are set in middle age what cud be inspiring ,unless for the ones who have expand the business of reach some position. please share your insights.

    Thank you for your question/comment.
    First, my name in this blog is Ahnanda for all of you who do not know me personally. That is what I wish to be called here.

    We have been conditioned to believe that we always need to have a goal in Life. The goal could be something mundane such as to become famous, build a business, obtain so much money, etc. or something for the “afterlife,” or “divine.”

    Let us say that your goal in Life was to be a successful businessman.
    Great goal! Right?
    You work hard all your Life to “achieve” this. No one knows the moment the goal is “achieved,” but the minute you think: “ I have achieved that goal,” that is the minute that your Life becomes meaningless. Therefore, other necessary goals may appear which are pressing in your Life at that moment, and which could be antagonistic to your previous achieved goal.

    Most people focus so hard in achieving “the goal” that they forget about the rest of Life. That will have a consequence.
    You may be a great businessman, but a lousy spouse. A great businessman, but health wise a frail person, etc.

    In the “Afterlife” is the same. Let us say you want to achieve “soul consciousness.” Let us say that you “achieve it.”
    Then what? How do you fill up your time?
    You will find out that enjoyment of the moment is the key, even in “soul consciousness.”

    Many will feel disappointed once they reach middle age and find that their achieved goals, are not enough to make them happy, fulfilled. Then, the thought to achieve a “divine” goal in the after Life, takes precedence. “Let me get heaven.” “let me be soul conscious.” “Let me achieve the karmatic stage.”

    The mind does not know what those things are, it only has information about them but still it wants to “achieve them.” The mind is so used to achieving things, why not use the same principle for the “afterlife”?

    I am not saying not to have goals. No! Just be aware of this:
    Once you achieve them, you will need other goals. If you do not achieve them, you will feel upset, a failure, a loser, etc. Nevertheless, if you enjoy the journey of getting to the goal, then the goal is no longer the important thing, but living Life in enjoyment.
    Thus, without a large capacity for enjoyment, which means the experience of no-mind; all we can have are goals to fill up our time while living.

    Therefore, DO anything you like in Life. Know that DOING is not the important thing, but enjoyment of the activity.

    Let us not make of enjoyment a goal to achieve, for that is not enjoyment.

    If your capacity for enjoyment is great, simple things in Life will bring joy, then your days will be filled with joy. What else is needed?

    The goal may be no goal, as when you have a mind, then is no-mind… and when you have an “I”? No-I.
    Those things are not achieved. You become aware of them naturally through Life experiences. Allow them to settle and go with the flow… in the meantime, enjoy just where you are in Life, every activity from waking up to going to sleep… those are extraordinary activities.
    Learn to enjoy the journey and you will never have a goal again, not because they are “bad, “ No!
    Because they are not necessary.

    For the common good.
