    BEING does not change through intellectual understanding. 

    Gayathri wrote an article which she shared it here.
    In this article, she expresses her understanding of the Drama, the soul and the predestined roles; explained in her unique ways supported by her own experiences.
    I am appreciative of her sharing. It is a well written article.

    However, her second article here is my favorite. Why?
    It is “real.” Anyone could observe her words in our own selves. We have been conditioned to believe that “ I create my thoughts,” we go with that belief, even though, plain observation and awareness may convey otherwise. It requires “effort” to look without bias. She just shared a third article here, which is equally good.

    However, after understanding intellectually all of those wonderful things; ARE we detached observers, or simply happy enjoying the movie of Life?
    No?
    Then of what good is that ”understanding”?

    If we suffer a disease, we should be happy. Right? Didn’t Baba tell us to be happy by paying happily our “debts,” our karmic accounts?

    In a nutshell: What we DO is to fake what we truly feel. To add a few more days of fake intellectual happiness until the mind gets “needy” again. Then, it needs another fix of beliefs.

    Brahma Kumaris is the path of the mind (Raja Yoga.)
    Baba is giving “reasons,” “truths,” “explanations,” and even “churnings” of intelligent children with “good intellects” to satisfy the hunger of “knowledge” of the children.
    He is giving all of that because the “children” are trapped in their own minds.

    We are conditioned to believe in something. We are conditioned to believe that when we know the “truth,” that will save us, that will make us “special.”
    But we can only go as far as our conditioning permits.

    For instance, we “know” the Drama is predestined, but yet we believe that there is good and bad, right or wrong. We label people, situations, circumstances, accordingly.
    If the Drama is predestined how is it possible to label something as “bad”? It was necessary. “Beneficial.” Thus, Is a low status “bad”? Is the Iron age “bad”? 
    “Churn” about it. But if you ARE invested in a belief system, you cannot explore. You are limited by your conditioning.

    The mind creates the “I.”
    The “I” creates predestination and free will. Those words and their meaning only exist in the mind, not in Life.
    Are we “actors”? An actor is aware of being an actor by learning a script. We are not aware of being actors. We don’t learn scripts. We believe that we make them. We feel that what is happening is “real.” We feel that it is not a play. Then why lie to ourselves?

    To calm the mind and get out of our sorrow temporarily.
    We are looking for a way to escape our sorrow and disappointments in Life.

    We are willing to make this Life a martyrdom so in the “afterlife,” we could be someone “special.” That is how desperate we are.

    The medicine is to go through the experience itself. Not to try to escape it. Light is at the end of that tunnel. We need to walk to the other side. We may be afraid, we may be attached to our current situation, we may value the safety of the known (even though suffering) greater than the unknown.

    A Sakar Murli has said that “courage” is the predominant quality of a Deity soul.
    Be courageous. Everything and anything is bound to start and to finish. That is our experience. No need to add beliefs or intellectual theories.
    Courage is the quality which allows a person to BE despite the different types of weather. Life is that weather. The weather is seasonal. That is our experience. No beliefs are necessary.

    By covering our mind with beliefs and intellectual realizations, we may calm the mind; but never BEING.
    Whether we believe to be a soul, a spirit or a body is of no consequence.

    Enjoy the experience of living. The contrasts, the surprises, the challenges, etc. Whether it repeats eternally or not, is of no consequence at all. What matters is “Now.”
    “Now” is the only time when we can experience and enjoy Life. As mentioned before: Enjoyment and appreciation are “good” karma for all.

    For the common good.

    Until November 30th! 🙂

      Dear brother,
      I read all your articles and i like it. There is a place in my heart that your writings are good and i should pay attention to it. I try to understand the depth of your writings. But, recently I could not feel comfortable and there is struggle in the mind to understand what you mean. I do not able to make it. Probably i have conditioned my mind for certain beliefs. Now, i want to get it clarified by writing my understandings to align with what you are writing. Kindly help me to understand.

      1) “If we suffer a disease, we should be happy. Right? Didn’t Baba tell us to be happy by paying happily our “debts,” our karmic accounts?”

      Earlier, If there is a disease, i used to think why for me? I used to envy on people who have good health. It is so funny if others are also getting the disease then, it was ok for me. Probably feeling of I am no less than others.

      Due to the understanding of Gyan, now I know, it has come to settle the accounts. I understand Drama is beneficial in this way as it operates according to the imperishable perfect law of karma. This understanding automatically puts full stop to the questions in the mind. As mind becomes healthy, it is easy to get through the disease. There used to be instances to think that i got this so i would have done something bad. Over a period of time, I relinquished myself out of the guilt and develop acceptance. I made the point to think what is in hand now to do about it. Be embodiment of solutions is my favourite.

      2) Is a low status “bad”? Is the Iron age “bad”?

      If i understand drama well, i won’t say it is bad but accurate.

      3) Are we “actors”? An actor is aware of being an actor by learning a script. We are not aware of being actors. We don’t learn scripts. We believe that we make them. We feel that what is happening is “real.” We feel that it is not a play. Then why lie to ourselves?

      Actors means there is no choice but to play the script. Though I do not know the script, i am destined to act which is already there in the script. If there is a freewill, then i will not be called as actor. So to understand me as actor is to play my roles as destined without attaching to that. Act, but be detached and attach to your original self. This understanding helps me to accept others as i know that they are acting in this way. This act is based on their consciousness throughout the drama and my interactions with them in the past.

      The medicine is to go through the experience itself. Not to try to escape it. Light is at the end of that tunnel.
      What do you mean by this brother?
      My understanding and dharana is,
      Through the understanding of the perfect actor and co-actors in this drama of life, i am able to give attention to maintain my original status. There is no enmity, judgmental feelings on others.

    The foundation of knowledge is faith 

    Murli 23-06-17

    Sweet children, the foundation of knowledge is faith. Make effort with your intellect having faith and you will reach the destination.
    Question:
    What one aspect should you understand deeply and have faith in?
    Answer:
    The karmic accounts of all souls are about to be settled and everyone will return to the sweet home like a swarm of mosquitoes. After that, only a few souls will go to the new world. This aspect should be understood deeply and you must have faith in it.
    Question:
    Which children is the Father pleased to see?
    Answer:
    The children who completely sacrifice themselves to the Father, those who are not shaken by Maya, that is, who are as unshakeable and immovable as Angad. The Father is pleased to see such children.
    Song:
    Have patience, o mind! Your days of happiness are about to come.

    A friend, sent me this Murli for my comments.  Here they are.

    In the Sakar Murli of 6/23/17, we could observe that knowledge according to Brahma Kumaris, has a foundation before it. That foundation is faith.

    Faith is a sentimental belief beyond rational, intellectual grasp.
    Knowledge is the theory, it is the belief of “truth.” It is something that could be explained to others, rationalized. In the case of Brahma Kumaris, it is the explanation on how everything works in Life, our “purpose” and what God is.

    For most followers, there is no experience of “knowledge.”
    It is a tale for grown-ups. What is the use of knowing that God is a soul, or that “I” am a soul if there is no experience of that?
    What is the use of the knowledge of predestination if there is no experience of that?

    Those are the theoretical aspects to believe in. Blindly.
    If those aspects of knowledge where experienced, there wouldn’t be a need to have faith.

    This is the first point to observe about this Murli.

    Again, in the second question there is the aspect of “understanding” intellectually what “karma” is and to have faith in that.
    There is the “theory of karma” and we should act according to our understanding of it.
    I act in a certain way and there are consequences of those actions. Karma is action.
    Let us say that I am riding my bike and a lizard appears from nowhere. I still have time to use my brakes, but I decide to go on thinking the lizard will “see” the bike. It doesn’t happen. The lizard gets run over. That is the action. What are the consequences?
    Karma is not as simple as that. INTENTION is a big player in every karmic consequence. However, that is not explained in Brahma Kumaris knowledge. A “black or white” knowledge is easy to follow, easy to understand; however, it is far from what it “is.”
    Brahma Kumaris is the path of the mind. To conquer the mind means to follow some activities, so even if internally thoughts are infused with negativity, even if the root is negativity, “I” will re-shape them into some learned “positivity” and reinforce that with some actions, karma, doings.

    We have not changed the source. No matter what we DO. Consider that.

    The second question in the Murli, is about “sacrifice” for the “Father.”
    How do you sacrifice? What is the need to sacrifice?
    Those are the main questions to answer. In my experience, any form of DOING for others, may have good reviews from others, it may be morally accepted and praised, but we are merely conforming to our conditioning.

    To follow a religious path is to “sacrifice” yourself. But, don’t believe that something “good” will emerge out of that. No matter how “unshakable” (stubborn) we become.
    Love has been the way, but when we do not know love, sacrifice has been invented.

    The “song” in the Murli gives importance to the mind. There is no happiness for the mind. The whole thing about the mind is to be active, to search for things, to be in movement wanting, desiring, acquiring, looking for something else.
    Happiness is in no mind, but this is not something to DO. It happens.

    For the common good.

      Om shanti.

      Thanks brother for explaining. The ‘no mind’ stage comes when we learn / realise to accept the drama as it is. Then there will be no goals to achieve, no need to criticise others.

      Having total trust in the drama that everything that is happening and the things that we are going to do are going to be the accurate ones makes our life’s journey entertaining. We can not become a ‘saint’ in one day even though we know all the rules and principles that one has to follow’ to become’ one. The day we become real ‘saints’ our behaviour would automatically be ‘saintly’. 🙂

      We do not need to ‘reach’ somewhere, we just have to keep going and enjoying life.

      (Today Gayathri ben has been speaking like an experienced spiritual person! Actually she has not reached that stage, she is just imagining the future path. 🙂 )

      best wishes,
      Gayathri.

    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.

      I guess that a core believer of BK movement identifies you as an agent of “maya” after reading this blog post and he/she avoids further reading of this blog posts to go to paradise.
