    Question: How to make thoughts, words and deeds to be the same? 

    “I need your help to explain us two of the very beneficial teachings which I still have not been able to implement 100%, but want to as they are required to keep the flow of my life smoother. So here are those two teachings:
    No 1: Your thoughts, words and actions should be in harmony, what you think, same thinking should be reflected in your words and actions. (Mansa, Wacha and Karmana should be same)
    No 2: Abstain yourself from creation of waste thoughts.
    The only reason I still want to implement these two teachings in me is that I think about one thing, I say another thing and end up doing totally different third thing in actions. Can you PLEASE explain what a person can do (By now I know that you use DO and BE in caps in all of your articles ) to implement these two things by being and by not being a BK.”

    Thank you for your interesting question.

    Yes, I use caps for BE and DO, hoping readers will find that there is a huge difference.
    In your question, you want to “implement” a teaching. That sounds to me like “office world” conditioning. There, you implement plans, implement solutions, etc.
    When we are referring to BEING, it does not work like that.

    When the Brahma Kumaris teachings says: “Your thoughts, words and actions should be in harmony or be the same,” that teaching is not telling the follower to DO something, to implement something to “achieve” that goal, although that is the interpretation. Followers are unaware of the “office word” conditioning and unaware of how DOING something who you are not, only covers who you ARE .

    That teaching is merely describing how a BEING in harmony will express himself. Most want to BE that, but they do not acknowledge who they ARE now first. They just reject that.

    Let me ask the question: Are “your” thoughts really “yours”? If they are, why you cannot stop them at will? Why is it so difficult to “create” loving, good, wholesome thoughts all the time?
    That is the first realization to go into.

    BEING attracts particular thoughts. Thus, what about if you find that those thoughts are not really created, willfully thought by you, but that they just appear?
    Then the realization to OBSERVE those thoughts will be obvious, to use another Brahma Kumaris teaching, to be a “detached observer” of those thoughts.

    If you OBSERVE those thoughts appearing in the sky of your mind, could we say that “you need to abstain from creating waste thoughts”?
    We cannot, for those are not “my” thoughts.
    What is the issue then? We are not AWARE to OBSERVE. We IDENTIFY with everything that is going through the mind as “mine.”

    If there is that detachment from thoughts, what will be the problem then? None. If you FEEL what your ACTION should be and DO it; wouldn’t your words be along those lines?
    But we are afraid of discovering who we ARE. We want to look respectable, we want to DO the “right” thing and not DO according to what truly I AM. Thus, we miss the greatest opportunity to discover who I AM. It is through that discovery how change happens without DOING a thing.

    Would you like to DO something useful in your Life?
    Learn to OBSERVE yourself. Learn to read yourself as you can do with a friend. This is not meant to judge yourself, but to allow that to BE, so if you realize it, see it, not intellectually but consciously, change is inevitable.

    However, most “spiritual” teachings have been distorted through some “easy to follow” interpretation to cater to the masses.

    This is easy to understand: If you don’t like it, change it. If you think bad things, change it to good things… The power is on that “I” but yet, “I” cannot stop thoughts.
    We are not aware on how we change the original bad thought into a good one by faking it. The root is “bad” and we change the branch and leaf of the tree of a thought to make it “good.”
    That is called inner dishonesty.

    How long can we go with that “practice”? Until we become AWARE.

    For the common good.

    Teachings from the BK system 

    Thank you for your interesting question.
    Let me say that the ego trip is everything. The teaching and the lesson to learn.
    The bottom line is always ego, and it must increase before it dissolves.
    When ego is not recognized, many “spiritual beliefs” appear according to our experiences. For example, in BK knowledge there are 5 main “vices” to “conquer.”
    Many BKs “will work on” a particular vice as if this was a task to “DO.” “This is lust. I will work on conquering it, then; I will go onto attachment and then ego…” We may feel good when we  say that “plan,” but there is no inner observation in those words.
    Those so-called “vices” are but the manifestation of the ego in different degrees according to where an individual is in his path.

    I learned from the BK system many things.
    For instance, I never had an experience with Subtle entities before my BK experience. That experience changed my Life. An entity who knows about you, inside and out better than you and also your past, present and future… That must be God! With that belief, I started my journey through the BK system.

    However, the knowledge of the “Cycle of Time,” was the most important aspect that I have learned in the BK system. It wasn’t just second hand knowledge, but I had an experience, which allowed me to understand beyond words. That is why Avyakt7’s “specialty” was the cycle of time. The cycle truly shows that we are all ONE.

    I am also thankful to the BK system for teaching me to rely on myself for my own needs. Of course, the next step for me was not to rely on the BK support at all, as a child grows and does not depend on his parents anymore. That is the way of Life.

    The BK system teaches discipline. Discipline is good for your spiritual evolution. Discipline is not supposed to be a tyrant by imposing practices in your Life, but rather discipline is helpful as long as it allows you to enjoy Life to the fullest. Otherwise, we become “renunciates,” which is a form of rejection towards Life. Discipline goes along with flexibility, as love with detachment.

    Looking back, the BK system gave me all the basic tools that I needed to explore my spiritual path and gain insight through an experience: Food, meditation (I had enjoyable experiences,) to enjoy silence, celibacy, to wake up early, to go to bed early, to enjoy my own company, etc.
    Also, I learned about the mind, although in theory. It was after the BK life, when I was able to experience the mind fully and to know feelings from mind/thoughts.

    To put it in a nutshell; if you look at the sky and see a rainbow; BK knowledge allowed me to separate the different colors and to match those colors to the knowledge the BK system gave me. The rainbow must match in my mind, the picture given by the BK system.

    Now, I see a rainbow. There are colors but those are not separate. The meaning of the rainbow is not in mental “knowing,” but in enjoying the moment.
    However, I also know about the different colors of the rainbow and that truly those colors are one (white light.)

    Both perspectives are “good,” but none the “ only true one.”
    My experience in the BK system was of great help for my spiritual development.

    For the common good.
