COMMENTS on Avyakt Murli – December 9, 2012
This Murli brings very important aspects to be aware of:
What does it mean to have the “powers and virtues” of the Father?
What is the meaning of “the children’s part are the highest and most elevated in the Drama?”
What is the meaning of “having a balance in all aspects”?
What is the meaning of being “double non-violent” so we do not commit the “great sin” of suicide of the soul?
The powers and virtues are an innate quality of the soul which we possess in a numberwise manner. BapDada takes “ownership” of those for He is the one who is reminding us about what is inside of us already and at the same time, that is BapDada’s method to maintain us as ego-less as possible. Thus, “Baba does everything. It wasn’t “me,” it was Baba.”
As shared before, BapDada has the challenge of explaining this knowledge to different levels of understanding and it is His role to cater towards the “very bottom” of understandings; that is why we hear so much simplicity; but if we take things literally; we will find ourselves living a “colorless” life; for we will only see “black or white.”
The issue is when as an organization, “black and white” are perceived as the only colors existing; or understanding that as being colored by the “Father.”
As we gather, BapDada’s role is that of a “Father who is proud of His children.” In the Drama there are only parts. Because we are aware of duality, if our parts are the “highest and most elevated in the Drama,” then our parts are also the” lowest and most degraded in the Drama.”
Sorry to bring the “bad news”… It seems like that is my part… 🙂 This is one of the challenges of “seeing gyan raw” without BapDada’s praise towards His children and devotional language. This is what will allow us to see that we cannot compare with any other soul and think that we are “better.” Never.
Take the praise of the Father, but let us be humble in an unlimited way.
We need to see that “sin” started with Brahma Baba as well and from that point, every Brahmin soul “followed the Father.” This is “pure gyan.” 🙂
Parts in the Drama change according to time. We couldn’t be the most elevated unless we were the most degraded as well at some point of our 80 something lives.
Also note that BapDada mentions about having the balance of law and love. This balance could be explained as “discipline and flexibility” or any other apparent opposite virtue or power. We have to have everything and rather than writing a list and checking if our “definitions” match our behaviors; we just need to become soul conscious and everything will be taken care of; in the meantime, we need words and definitions of virtues and powers so we can imitate what the dictionary defines.
Finally, the great “sin” of committing suicide is to indulge in sex lust. Now, will that mean that “everyone who indulges in sex lust is a sinful soul?” I hope your answer is “No.”
Because it just depends on a part who is being played according to time.
If you are a Brahmin soul, according to time, your part is to “elevate your stage.” If you are any other soul, your part is to experience degradation. For a Brahmin soul indulging in vice now, means to stop what they have been accumulating as an “effort maker.”
Through the law of karma, that soul will start experiencing the “fruit” of that effort making life now. Usually we see that with “Ex-BKs,” once they are out of gyan, they may get a good job, start a family life with a “good” partner; enjoy the worldly activities and pleasures and “believe” that they are “better off” now. They do not realize that they are receiving the “return” of their effort making life now.
When you “signed up” as a BK; the time to settle karmic accounts started. The “time to pay” started. However, soul consciousness again, is the way to become a “detached observer” of that settling. That is the “fruit” of true effort making life at this time and that is where our happiness should come from.
On the second part of the Murli, the words “tapasya,” “renunciation,” “not to receive anything from anyone,” “love to the Father and fulfill the promises” were given.
As BapDada explained, renunciation does not mean to “close doors “ to family, friends and relatives in a “compulsory” way. It is not like “we are forcing ourselves” to be away from them… No! there is a natural “going away” when we find that there is “nothing in common” anymore; but this is the opportunity for “service” to happen.
Not necessarily giving them the “true introduction to the Father;” but practically “Son shows the Father.”
Family members may speak about cricket and the weather or some tabloid gossip as a “conversation,” while for an “effort maker,” in a “natural way,” that will not be attractive anymore; and rather than act in a compulsory way as saying: “Please do not talk that waste.” We will not be attracted at all, so “hearing without listening” will take place. Obviously, if you are a “brand new BK” you may not feel this in you “yet.” But if you continue to grow with spiritual nourishment, sooner or later; that will be felt. The feeling is like being a fish out of the water. 🙂
In that “renunciation,” there is no “renunciation,” but it happens automatically. It is natural. When something happens naturally, there are no inner conflicts, no repression.
Once “unlimited disinterest” sets in and we become like a “racing horse living in a crowded city,” and accept that; “dying alive” will start and automatically we will be attracted to spirituality, the Father and the experience of the soul. It would be almost like the world is offering us with toys to play, when we are already grown up adults.
At this point there is “no taking anything from anyone;” for there is no interest even though externally we may accept a “toy” from someone as a “service,” internally; we will put it away.
Tapasya , remembrance, yoga is the means to get us there without studying books and thinking about “definitions” of powers and virtues.
Once we have tasted the “spiritual world,” that will be the means to keep us “alive” while “dying alive” from the old sanskaras. That renunciation will be natural disinterest. In that stage “attractions as distractions” will be over. It is Disillusionment. It is being “free” from the “illusion.” That is away from Maya.
At that point, service will be our only means to “survive.” Our only task and our “breath.”
As clear as STILL waters of Ocean, we can see through to our inner depth as an effort maker whose intellect swings between faith & doubts while living a life of action.
