Thank you for your thoughtful question!
What you have churned is good. I you have experienced that, we can say that for you, it is all of the above. Baba/Drama/Self.
However, in the Sakar Murlis, Baba has mentioned: “The role is recorded in you.” Also Baba has said about God: “I am in bondage of the Drama.” and .. BapDada has mentioned: “whatever happens, that is the Drama.” 🙂
Some souls may experience that “Baba is guiding them in their next step in life by showing them signs.” Other souls, may express that:” According to Gyan, this is the right plan of action for them,” and yet other souls may say:” I just let myself go and the Drama showed me this…” Those are experiences.
If you would like to believe that Santa Claus is giving you gifts for Christmas. There is nothing wrong with that. There is magic in that, there is an innocent belief in goodness and receiving a gift for being good by someone who you do not see but who knows that you are good. It is inspiration to work “harder” the next year. It gives you a sense of being taken care of.
If you know that your parents are the ones giving you the gifts, then likewise you feel loved, protected, etc; but the magic is lost. It is no longer about “being good,” but convincing your parents that you are good. 🙂
If you go to the store and buy yourself gifts, then you believe that you have to rely only in yourself. The magic is gone. The sense of love from others is finished, you are alone and depend just on you.
The bottom line: You get a gift 🙂 Depending on your consciousness and experiences in life, you will believe.
There is wisdom in God being hidden most of the time…
