The Drama is just a song

When we hear a song, there may be several responses to that same song.

Some will dance, some will sing and yet others will cry. Different reactions, emotions.

It is the same song viewed under different experiences. The same Drama appreciated under different sanskaras.

The Drama is just a song and we give meaning to it.

When we hear the song without gyan in our minds, we cannot recognize the song as a song but rather we see what we have been taught to see, under the vision of our traditions, dogmas and moral codes.
That is what our emotions dictate.

Pain can only see the possibility of being hurt again. Disappointment, can only see darkness. Any experienced of fear can only bring more fear.

It may be easier to unlearn what we have been taught to believe than to heal the emotions brought by the song.
That is our personal journey. To heal the self.
That is the meaning of the Brahmin life.

The Drama is just a song with no lyrics, and when we have gyan in our hearts, we learn to enjoy the song, knowing that it is necessary to forget that song so we can experience it fresh again……and again.
To learn to forget is necessary in life , just as remembrance is in our BK life.

Gyan teaches us to enjoy the song by making the lyrics of it according to what we find in our own selves, for the song and the lyrics are just a reflection of what is going on inside.

We can analyze the tunes, we can just be ironic and say “it is just an eternally repeating song” and kill our own feelings, or we can learn to enjoy the tunes as it plays, in the moment; without rememebring the last played note; now gone, nor looking to hear the violins and the “golden” trumpets of the future when they have not played yet.

The song can be enjoyed only “now” as it unfolds for there is no other time besides “now” when we live life to the fullest.

    Greetings of peace! Your churnings are like matches that spark realizations in others. Thank you Baba. 🙂

    Same theme was playing in my thoughts as well, also about paradox. About the constants and the variables. I feel the Drama is the constant and our responses to the Drama are the variables. 🙂 Just like how the Truth is viewed as Absolute and at the same time relative. Truth stays the same as Baba is – His Love is – Absolute, Constant, etc. But our experiences of that truth, according to our sanskars, etc are the one’s that are relative – yet the same! 🙂

    Amazing! These kind of thoughts fill me with power and clarity to face situations, relationships and see souls as one. I love Baba! I love gyan! I love Drama. Wah! Child! Wah! as Baba would say. 😀

    Much love to BK family!

    Avyakt7: The Drama is just a song with no lyrics……
    The Drama has lyrics and it is fixed. No room to add another line or two. The same song plays on the same gramophone & the same actors do the same dance.

    Haaaah! Why do I let it happen? Good question nah!
    Sometimes I do not let it happen.. I learn from my mistake, experience….seeing others mistake I do not want to fall in the same trap……my intellect is in order……BUT other times I fall even though my intellect is telling me not to take that course. Well I say it is settling a karmic account.
