Signing up for Brahmin life

I find fascinating how so many Brahmin souls do not fully realize why they have been “selected” to sign up as a Brahmin soul.

Most of the time, what I hear is about experiences with Baba and the Divine family or that they felt drawn towards a particular aspect of the Brahmin life, such as “service,” or just because they practice celibacy and vegetarianism and found “nice” people similar to them.

All of the above may have been the reason why someone “signed up,” but none of the above reasons will be enough to keep you going, if in fact what you are looking for is to find your full spiritual potential in a practical way, in your current life.

Basically, when you are in “this,” you are in it, to “die alive,” that is to transform the self.

That “dying alive,” is not well understood. It has nothing to do with having visions or experiences with Baba. It has nothing to do with having a good intellectual grasp of gyan. It has to do with seeing yourself as you really are and the contrast of knowing through gyan of “who you were” and therefore; “who you can become again.”

This Brahmin life has many tests in it and if you have not experienced tests in your life due to being a Brahmin soul; perhaps you are following some fad, like “dressing in white” for the “spirituality of it.” 🙂

Once you signed up to be a Brahmin, you signed up to recognize your own weaknesses and to observe how those overtake your life. Your ability to withstand those challenges, those “tests,” is what determines your potential, your capacity.

You may choose to look like a nun or a monk. You may choose to act like them, you may know how to talk like them, you may open 100 centers, etc. but all of that is just a peripheral view of spirituality.

What matters is at the “end,” when it is the time for you to leave this corporeal existence. That is the second that determines your next destination but to get to that second, there are many years of preparation. That is it. Simple and straight forward.

That is why, whatever you do, may give you “extra points,” but it will not allow you to “pass with honors.”

Therefore, your position in the hierarchy/administration is of no consequence. Your “gold ring” and “your teacher badge,” are of no consequence. You knowledge of the “accurate” history of the Yagya or Your “many times in Madhuban,” or “many years in gyan” it doesn’t matter at the end of the road.

You can have so many life experiences under different positions and circumstances. Nothing matters, UNLESS; that was a preparation for that final second in your physical existence.

It is not for everyone to get there. Many will drop out along the way. This is part of the “game.” However, we need to remember that everything works in “cause and effect,” therefore; your “final moments,” will be nothing but the consequence of your previous moments.

We signed up as Brahmin souls in a body conscious state, just to be transformed at the end in a soul conscious state. That is all. It is the story of the “ugly duckling” who in reality was a beautiful swan. That illusion of believing to be an “ugly duckling” is Maya.

This path “is not like going to your auntie’s home.” That is why BapDada is there, just to show us the way, but we need to take the steps in our own two feet and experience every step along the path. We can only stop for a brief time to take a breath, but the only way is to move forward.

May you keep flowing to your highest destination!
