The bottom line
We can believe in whatever we want. That does not mean that it is the “truth.”
It may be “our” truth, but please realize that it could change at any time. We could be stubborn, but that is our issue. We have the right to be stubborn… and the consequences as well.
As a matter of fact, as our consciousness changes, so our understanding will change.
We are never the same. Ever. We are always changing, always evolving, always becoming….Propelled by the quality of our feelings, which in turn become our actions.
If we change our actions but we do not change our feelings, we will be acting as repressed individual.
We could look “honorable” under the eyes of others, but we will be burning inside. Ready to explode at any time.
There is no activity, which is “pure or impure” in the “movie of life.” Unless we believe otherwise.
It is just the feelings that we have about that activity which makes things ugly or beautiful.
Love between human beings is beautiful but not so much when our feelings are “ugly,” when that “love” is based on neediness, when it is just about expectations.
A greedy person cannot know what love is.
That greed is not just about money or power, but there is greed in our ideas about becoming someone “special,” an angel or a saint or a deity. That is, our life will be focused on “achieving something” in the future based on an ideal, forgetting about living life in the present, where our feelings reside. The now.
Let things happen uncalled, as they have to happen without trying to control the outcome. That ego driven self who thinks that spirituality is like going to school and earning a grade when you “study more,” is a self-deception. There is no homework to achieve. It happens… all by itself, when you relax, enjoy and allow your “pure” feelings to blossom.
Empty yourself so there is no “self” to adore or to support, so you can surrender to life, be part of that totality without trying to become “someone.”
That “trying” is just the game of an egotistical mind. We will change by itself… We just need to look at our feelings so they direct the changes in us. It is cause and effect. It is not something that appears from just this life. We are eternal.
If we believe in God. That is great! We are never alone. We live in relationship. If you believe that God will help you just because you joined a religion, you are deceiving yourself. In life, you can only get what you deserve. You earn that help. How?
Through your “pure” feelings, which became actions at one point. Those activities became the “law of karma.” The origin is in your feelings.
You may misunderstand my words. Beware of that.
That is because unless you have experienced what I am trying to convey through limited words, you will not understand. That is, you will interpret these things according to what you know. According to your consciousness. That is how nothing written or spoken could contain truth. It is just a perception, adulterated by language and limited consciousness.
That is why Avyakt7 does not teach anything. He only shares his experiences, realizations and such in this blog.
You are free to read them or not. Free to interpret them as you wish.
There is no expectation in this “game.”
Hopefully you will enjoy this “game.”! 🙂
Reader comment and another reader question
I wanted to share something that happened to me in terms of shift in consciousness. Its festival time in India and lots of celebrations take place like any other geography at this time of the year.
The OLD Me: When I used to observe people who dance either during the Ganesh festival or during Garba Ras (navrathri) was all “These people are in body consciousness and they do not have a clue of why they are dancing etc.. Again no fault of people who have expressed their feelings from the BK world.
The New Me : These people are all my fellow beings who are just having a great time celebrating and being joyful- Can i not soak in to their joy and feel great about it? If I knew dancing I would have been glad to go and dance along with them. Once this shift in consciousness happened internally, experienced a never before feeling of oneness and world family.
A small step nevertheless but for me a significant one. It gave me a lot of joy just being there and observing myself go ” AHA”…
I just wanted to share this because without this blog I don’t think that this would have been possible. I just have a different understanding of what Bapdada has been trying to tell through the murli’s.
Many Many thanks for helping me understand the self better.”
Thank you for sharing your experience. Glad to know that you feel the improvement! Learning some dancing moves could enhance your joy! 🙂
Perhaps next time you could observe the inner chattering in yourself (which you have described.) Perhaps, your mind dialogue will not be there with opinions. Perhaps next time just joy for the sake of it will be in your consciousness so the external joy harmonizes with the internal. That would be joy without words… 🙂
Dear reader, please keep in mind that this blog is about spirituality and that spirituality is the same but only explained with different words by different teachers.
What you understood from BapDada before was due to your state of consciousness. What you can understand now is also due to your state of consciousness. Some may see things that you don’t; others may not see what you see. That is the game.
Thank you for your continuous support and my best wishes for that spiritual progress.
Q: “I would like to know who is in charge of this blog. May I know it or it has to be incognito? I thank you in advance for your answer.”
Sure, you can. It is “me.” “Me” is a nobody.
Best wishes! 🙂
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?”
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.
Reader remark: Thank you note
Brother just a short note to express heartfelt gratitude to you for continuing the blog in a new direction and also to the souls who convinced you to do so. It’s a bit hard to explain but the blog is automatically answering what this soul needs to know, in a manner that it can understand. Shall share details soon.
Thank you for your kind note, dear soul. Look forward to hearing the “details” of your story… 🙂

dear big brother i was very touched by the sincerity an depth of ur words…and i feel , u have a special role u took ,and u will always take:support throug words and vibrations words carry energy, and ur words are inspiring, and lightning baba do need such children baba do love all children love and respect namaste
From: Bk Pravin
Authority – Fear = Success We live in the world of hierarchy and uncetaintity. There are consequences of decision. When a decision is being taken with responsibility but with certain fear may lead to failure. I came across thought regarding the fear, it is: “A Simple Way to Remove Fear is to Seek Knowledge and Understanding”. Knowledge makes us powerful, in fact knowledge is power. With this godly knowledge we will become powerful, fearless. Just we need to churn it, share it and use it appropriately. This is Shivbaba’s knowledge when I churn and use it, it becomes mine. Many times we become impulsive (i.e. do not seek knowledge and understanding) about any person, situation, event etc. Also, we will not apply the knowledge appropriately in particular situation. This may create fear. Which will affect our confidence whenever we take the decision. Likewise our confidence may degrade further. The way to come out of this situation is to become assertive, neither aggressive nor impulsive. Assertive is using the authority righteously. It is neither impulsive (fearful) nor aggressive (i.e. using the authority unkindly) Note: Congratulation!!!!!!!!!!!. The platform of bkgyan.com (by Brother Louis alias avyakt7) is playing vital role in making the BK students powerful. It is fabulous. By: BK Pravin Patil (alias anadi000), Pune, India,.
A new phase in the blog :-)
For those who have followed this blog from the beginning, you may have experienced different changes in it.
Those changes are meant to be, for those reflect the spiritual changes in life.
In the past few days, I have heard some comments about avyakt7’s “role as a Guru.”
First, from a BK friend who I appreciate and value; “as coming as a guru” in a conversation. Then, from other sources of the Internet: forums, mail lists, etc.
I have repeated many times that I am not a guru, just a student who happens to have the time and desire to share.I am just another human being…but it appears that my words do not meet my behavior as perceived by some souls.
I want to apologize for that, if your feelings were hurt in any way. As you can see, I am not “perfect” (yet) 🙂
Yesterday in early meditation, I had the clear feeling that this blog needed to stop. Finish.
An email from a dear soul friend of mine confirmed that feeling, this morning.
I was getting ready to do it…. to say “see ya in 5000!”.. 🙂 But the Drama had other souls in my path, which requested avyakt7 to continue.
Please be mindful that the spiritual experiences that I am having right now are changing the way that I express and perceive Spirituality through Gyan. It is not the same “clear cut” topic from the Sakar Murlis anymore. It has evolved. As always, you will read here what goes on in my heart. Not some manicured version to fit a group or someone.
Through this blog I have learned so much about Gyan and perspectives of Spirituality, which I cannot convey in words without being misunderstood.
I am mindful of that.
A very close friend of mine, suggested that I change the “form” of the articles. To share more about life experiences that could be helpful for others, across the spiritual “realm.”
Perhaps that is the “new way.” I do not plan articles but merely express them as they appear as I type. I never know what will be typed the next day, except when it is Sunday’s Avyakt Murli.
Dear souls, the “guru” needs to perish so something new can take birth.
Death is a new beginning.
Therefore, here comes my list of “action-tasks.” 🙂
1) Writings will be about Spirituality in general. Although, it will reflect BapDada’s gyan; the words as we have used it may not be utilized in the same way. If you want to know about some key words such as “drama,” or “vikarma,” etc. You will find plenty of articles here already… or the internet.
2) Questions will be accepted if only they meet the general criteria of being “universal,” that is if anyone regardless of religious association , could understand them. From now on, any questions which do not meet that criteria will be discarded. In other words, all those repeated questions of dinosaurs, Golden age reproduction, “what Baba means,” destruction forecasts and such, will be discarded. There is plenty of information here already.
3) Any writings that you may want to share as long as they reflect general spirituality or your own experiences will be welcome. Please send your articles to tiger (AT) reiki.nu or through the “reader remark,” tab.
I may share few articles rather than quantity. That will keep things in balance in my life.
Thank you again for all your kind support.
A heart felt rays of loving warmth to all of you, as the sunshine embraces a new beautiful day.
Readers Remarks: Questions being answered.
Dear brother Om Shanti, I am in gyan for the last 4 years but a number of questions were in my mind which nobody was answering. Yesterday incidently I came to know about your site. I am of the firm beleif that BABA has helped me and he is himself answering me through this blog. You are very intelligent. Today by reading the topics I remained happy throughout the day. However, now a question is in my mind which i am asking throuh Questions. Thanks & OM SHANTI KEEP DOING THIS GREAT JOB.
Thank you for your kind words. I am glad to know that you are finding benefit by reading the posts of this site. Avyakt7 is just a role that I have to “put up with.” 🙂 Today called ” very intelligent,” tomorrow a “buddhu.” 🙂
Believe me, this role is used to hear both terms frequently. Thus, “nothing new.” 🙂
As I mentioned before, I feel fortunate to be part of an “unofficial team” here of souls who contribute with their experiences and wisdom.
Hope you keep enjoying this site!
