Question: omshanti, i am Nxxx from amritsar. I am godly student last 1½ years. I am 26 years old. Today i receive this new blog by inner beauty. I have one question but actually not asking by me. It’s by other godly student. Her question is that if we are as like in present and after every 5000 years we will as like as we are. Then what different. Actually she want answer for this question. I try to clarify everything by gyan. Can you tell me answer?
Thank you for your very good question, N.! (your name will not be published unless you request it.)
I will elaborate on your question so we can get to the “one sentence” answer.
Every moment is eternal. It has to repeat. The meaning of being eternal makes sense only when “time” is understood. Since in BK gyan we understand time as cyclical as you pointed out, and that there is always a “cause” for an “effect,” it follows that it must repeat. Because a moment repeats, we can go to a “fortune teller” and she can tell us “our future” as long as she has an accurate connection. Why? because we have “done” our future before. That is why, the future is also our past. Paradox.
Also, we could appreciate that stars and Nature have a relationship with our birth. This is the basis of astrology as a profound and old “art,” which is trying to use the term “scientific,” but it depends on the artful interpretation of an individual. Also, you have the “palm readers” such as the well-known Cheiro.
The above is just a background for us to appreciate that we souls, perform a “role” which is related with the whole Drama. The roles move according to time, but it is not YOU, the soul. Just a role.
The Drama is about “going up and coming down the ladder” for a BK soul. (Please read these articles: http://bkgyan.com/2012/07/11/exploring-the-meaning-of-the-ladder/
and http://bkgyan.com/2012/07/12/point-in-depth-lost-in-the-ladder-2/ to better understand this.)
Therefore, our roles are meant to “Go up, so we can come down.” Why?
Because the physical world is about experiencing. What we call life is the interchange of “experience” and “expression.” We souls express a role and experience through the roles of others and our own. We experience the whole range of it. The “good” and the “bad.” According to the Drama, now is the time to “go up” therefore, the role of a BK needs to be performed one more time.
See, that to be detached from a “role,” is to be a “detached observer.” It does not matter if the role is “good” or “bad.” It is simply a role.
Here the Paradox: even though we know that everything repeats identically, we “experience” this time as “new.” You know why?
Because for the soul there is no sense of time. The role just plays and we don’t sit and think, :”but this role has played before.” 🙂
Therefore for a BK soul, that “fortune” of experiencing the “utmost happiness,” it is guaranteed for there is no power in the world which can stop that from happening again. It is in the role.
That is why Brahma Baba does not appear to every soul in the planet at this time or make his presence be understood by all. Different roles for different people. All good. All necessary.
Dear N. “It is just a role.” A performance, a game, a past-time, hobbies….
To finish and answer your question: what we have is NOW. That is why it is important to “make effort” now. Because this NOW is eternal. Later, we will forget about it.
That is the “game.” See? It is guaranteed that you will be you again in 5000 years, but the role calls for you to be a BK now. Just a role.
“True effort making” will show you the fruit NOW, not in the future. The future is a golden pie which will come through the law of cause and effect alone.
That was a pretty deep question. You are welcome to reply and ask for clarification any time you want.
