Question on moving away from the BK belief system

“I have noticed the change in the naming of the site and the move away from the BK. Just a few observations/comments: 1. BK teachings is for the childhood phase of spirituality- I find that the teachings are subtle and keeps changing as and when we move to the next phase- To write it off as something that is meant for the childhood phase is a little premature. 2. Belief systems: They may seem ritualistic and have issues related to what if that belief system fails- I can say from personal experience that I lacked understanding of what was being communicated. If belief systems need to be questioned then even the words spoken in the Avayakt Murli’s need to be then re-visited- who is actually coming and speaking these murli’s etc.. the list goes on. How does one then use these support systems of the BK’s if there is no belief?”

Dear reader,

Thank you for your very good questions!
One of the things that we should notice as well, is that every single question posted by readers, have been placed here and answered here at the same time.

Hopefully it was noticed that the realizations on Brahma Kumaris knowledge posted here, have benefited many Brahma Kumaris followers as they themselves have expressed that. Obviously, there will be others who do not feel the same. That is just life.

Finally, it is important to say that this blog has changed to reflect the changes in Avyakt7. There needs to be transparency and congruence. Avyakt7 is not here to make money, sell you something or to “self promote” (for what?) or to defend a particular belief system. Avyakt7 is sharing here for the “common good,” realizations and experiences in the spiritual path. The common good, dear reader; implies that divisions are out. This is BK, this is not BK..is out. “My religion is the truth” is out. There cannot be a sense of world family while at the same time we make any sort of divisions.

On your questions:

1. BK teachings is for the childhood phase of spirituality- I find that the teachings are subtle and keeps changing as and when we move to the next phase- To write it off as something that is meant for the childhood phase is a little premature.

I’d like to apologize if what I have mentioned as “Bk teachings is for the childhood stage of Spirituality” has been taken as “lower than” by many. I have acknowledged my deep appreciation and gratefulness to the BK path as well.

Which stage of human development is “greater”? Adulthood, childhood, teen, old?
The label of “childhood” denotes, the “beginning,” the phase where support from the Father is needed.

Many do not understand the role of BapDada as a Father to provide that needed support. Dear reader, God or the Divine has many “facets,” roles…We cannot define “God” by just a particular “role” that He is playing with particular human beings.
BapDada is the first one showing changes as time goes by.

Nevertheless, dear reader let me share this with you. A spiritual walker does not depend on any group to spiritually flourish. A spiritual walker, is not dependent on anything. However, without completing that stage of “childhood” in my experience, it would be very hard to go onto the next step.

In my experience, completing the childhood stage means to conquer “sex-lust,” and to have openness to life. To move on with gratitude and thanks to life for that invaluable experience of childhood. This is the difference between an Ex- follower and someone who is still walking spirituality.

2.Belief systems: They may seem ritualistic and have issues related to what if that belief system fails- I can say from personal experience that I lacked understanding of what was being communicated. If belief systems need to be questioned then even the words spoken in the Avayakt Murli’s need to be then re-visited- who is actually coming and speaking these murli’s etc.. the list goes on. How does one then use these support systems of the BK’s if there is no belief?

Dear reader, belief systems have the tendency to be ritualistic when in a religious context. However, a ritual is not what will make someone move to another step or level. As mentioned, a spiritual walker cannot depend on anything not even on rituals. If you depend on a ritual to “be good” and elevated, your change is not “real.” Hope you could see this point.

There is nothing which needs to be “revised” in the words of Avyakt BapDada. It is just that we need to understand his role, that is all. As mentioned in a previous article, when we realize about our own immortality, there is no need for a belief. However, when we do not have that realization, a belief system is that initial protection to grow, just like a planted seed, needs to be taken care of by the gardener until it grows. That is when a belief becomes necessary.

As a spiritual walker, you need to go through the changes in life and become stronger and vital so you can be “like the Father.” This does not mean “dependent on the Father.” Obviously, all of us, spiritual walkers; are in different stages.

Every person has to look at themselves with great honesty and see the call of time and their own destiny.

I appreciate your question and hope that this time, I have clarified those items that you mentioned.

Dear reader, wish you all the best in your particular path.
With deep gratitude for your role in life.

    🙂 Beliefs are like leafs on a tree. Today, they grow; tomorrow they are dropped on the ground by the wind. Beliefs have their own season. So beliefs are meant to be leafs… 🙂

    If we lack in understanding the childhood stage in spirituality how can we progress further?
    if BK beliefs form a foundation on which the entire study depends, it becomes very necessary to clarify all doubt’s related to BK’s gyan, only then a person can progress in his spiritual path as far as the connection of that person with BK’s is concerned.
    henceforth taking questions in the belief system section is also to be considered for the help of a person who has difficulty in understanding the same beliefs.
    thank you

    Dear A7

    First of all let me acknowledge with gratitude that there have been so many positive takeaways for me from this blog and I am thankful for that.

    I have also learnt quite a lot from the ex-followers of the Brahmakumaris, I guess there is so much to learn from others experience.

    There is a sense of not having gotten it even after spending more than 12 years with the organization, having said that the feeling is personal does not reflect on the organization or people involved in it.

    Back to the answers, it hit the nail on the head., After reading it I have to accept that I feel like a baby in gyan still needing support of the Father. Now I know its okay to feel like that.

    Thank you for sending me a detailed reply, really appreciate it.

    Attachment is not just clinging on to relationship,fame, material things but also particular belief system. It takes deep realization to come out of it and experience the real being or call it spirituality. “Why look at the finger but not where it is pointing”
