There is a time for everything. Time to party and time to sleep…
As Brahmin souls, we typically go to bed at 10 PM and wake up at 3:30 AM. Typically. There are exceptions as we know, for it is numberwise.
Let us say that Carlos is a “nice guy.” A “Kali yug” soul who likes to “enjoy life.”
Carlos has a friend. His name is Anil. He is a Brahmin soul.
From Carlos’ perspective, Anil “bhai” is a good person. Very honest. Someone who Carlos can count on for anything he may need, especially; his “wise” advice on things, when Carlos gets in trouble.
Carlos is concerned about his friend Anil, though. For Anil does not have any fun at all. From Carlos’s view, Anil just meditates all day and talks about his invisible friend “Baba” and his knowledge.
Here is a typical dialogue between the 2 friends:
Carlos: “ Anil, there is a nice party tonight. I want you to come with me. It will be lots of fun… I mean…It will be a good opportunity for you to do “service.”…Come on, bud!”
Anil:” Thank you bro. You know that I cannot stay like you do, all night. I can only go with you for a couple of hours, then I need to go back home.”
Carlos: “ A couple of hours???… This is a party and not a funeral viewing…You are going to have fun. You’ll come home straight for your morning meditation. I promise, you will not miss it.!!!” 🙂
Anil: “Thank you, Bro. But maybe some other time. “
Carlos: “ But Anil… You live only once. Have some fun.!! For God’s sake… You are going to miss so much while you are playing the sleeping beauty, “part.” I am going to be dancing, talking, meeting new people and watching the beautiful sun appear in the horizon in the early morning.. then .. I will crash and have a good sleep…
Is Carlos right? Or is Anil right?
Anil will be a “golden age deity,” and be “awake” for most of the cycle. Carlos will not. Carlos will be playing “sleeping beauty” most of the “time” and then wake up towards the end to have “some fun.”
Is Carlos missing something or is Anil missing something in life?
I hear, “But Carlos will be sleeping for 4500 years until a prince kisses him and he will “wake up” then.”
🙂 There is no experience of time for a soul. Besides, Carlos will be “home.” Isn’t this the time to go “home”? Well, Carlos will be there taking a “long” nap and just as when we wake up after a good night sleep and it seems that rather than 5 hours of sleep, we slept for 30 minutes; similarly Carlos will feel the same. He will have all the energy to conquer the world, while a Brahmin soul will be in his “stage of retirement” when Carlos wakes up.
It is a matter of timing and perspective. It is relative.
Anil didn’t miss the party if he truly didn’t feel like going. His sleep was important for him.
Similarly in the Drama. No one loses anything. The perfection of this Drama is that we will go and “wake up” where we need to.
“The Golden and Silver age party” of 2500 years is not appealing for all; but just for Brahmin souls.
Take away the “nice labels” such as Golden age or Paradise or heaven… Call it just “Spring,” you will see that there is no more fights about who “truly goes to heaven.”
However, for Anil bhai; this is the time to “accumulate.”
