Essence: Sweet children, you have to become rup and basant (an embodiment of yoga who showers knowledge) the same as the Father.
Imbibe knowledge and yoga and then donate according to the personality.
Question: What system continues from the copper age, a system which the Father stops at the confluence age?
Answer: The system of bowing at someone’s feet continues from the copper age. Baba says: Here, you don’t need to bow at anyone’s
feet. I am Abhogta (beyond any effect of experience), Asochta (One who is free from thoughts) and Akarta (One who doesn’t do anything).
You children are even greater than the Father because children are the masters of all the property of the Father. Therefore, I, the Father,
salute you masters. You don’t need to bow down at all. Yes, regard does has to be given to young and old.
Song: The rain of knowledge is for those who are with the Beloved.
Essence for dharna:
1. Use your time in a worthwhile way in every aspect. Donate to worthy personalities. Don’t waste your time chasing after those who
don’t want to listen to you. Donate knowledge to the devotees of the Father and the deities.
2. Imbibe the imperishable jewels of knowledge and become wealthy. Definitely study. Each jewel is worth hundreds of thousands
of rupees. Therefore, imbibe them and inspire others to do the same.
Blessing: May you be an image of experience who overcomes obstacles considering them to be a game by learning the lesson
of “nothing new”.
Do not be afraid when you see obstacles. You are becoming an idol and so there will be some hammering. It is only by hammering
the idol that they make it right. The further ahead you go, the more storms you will have to cross. However, these storms are a gift
for you to become experienced. Therefore, do not think: Are all the experiences of obstacles going to come to me alone? No.
Welcome them: Come! If you have made the lesson of “nothing new” firm, then these obstacles will feel like a game.
Slogan: If you have the speciality of truth, the sparkle of the diamond, the soul, will automatically spread everywhere.
This Murli for me was about a “tour” to the path of bhakti. A couple of pages of explanations about the “ocean of milk,” Vishnu, Shiva as the purifier and other stories. I cannot put myself into the mind of a person raised and born in India, but for a westerner such as myself in this life; there was very little meaning to those stories. My take on this Murli besides the blessing and the slogan, was “remembrance” and to be the embodiment of that remembrance in order to shower knowledge to others.
There is a point which I will expand in an article. That is the full meaning of this phrase:
“Abhogta (beyond any effect of experience), Asochta (One who is free from thoughts) and Akarta (One who doesn’t do anything)”
For now I would like to share that “akarta” pretty much describes that God does not do anything, but yet we usually say that He is the purifier. Is He doing that? Obviously not. Through our connection, yoga; that purification happens. Note that this Murli gave an example based on the path of bhakti:” Ask them where is God. They will respond that He is omnipresent. Then ask them: You call Him the purifier, so How is He going to purify?”
Because He is “akarta” God does not “act.” Hopefully this churning does not bother any sensibilities.
We cannot say that God does things but yet call Him “akarta,” or even worse, to pretend that we know which activities God does and which ones He doesn’t.
Gyan tells me that God does not do anything. “Doing” is not His function. Once we know gyan, that is it. Let us be aware that all the ‘doing’ for BKs is happening through father Brahma and unless you are a BK soul, the odds of seeing him in “action” are very little.
That is part of gyan as well for everyone has a “section.”
The blessing is full of gyan in it. Life is a game, once we know how to play it; then we could see that we have survived many times and that we will do it again. Therefore, nothing new.
