One of the best explanations I have found about this “process” could be read in the “Hua Hu Ching,” Chapter 59.
“Greed for enlightenment and immortality is no different than greed for material wealth.
It is self-centered and dualistic, and thus an obstacle to true attainment. Therefore these states are never achieved by those who covet them; rather, they are the reward of the virtuous.
If you wish to become a divine immortal angel, then restore the angelic qualities of your being through virtue and service. This is the only way to gain the attention of the immortals who teach the methods of energy enhancement and integration that are necessary to reach the divine realm.
These angelic teachers cannot be sought out; it is they who seek out the student.
When you succeed in connecting your energy with the divine realm through high awareness and the practice of undiscriminating virtue, the transmission of the ultimate subtle truths will follow. This is the path that all angels take to the divine realm.”
There are many beings of light who are helping at this time. This is the “Godly team.”
This is important to know because your affiliation to a particular religion or creed does not determine that these “divine beings,” will “choose you.” There is more to that. Many lifetimes are behind that.
It is more about our own qualities and capacity to live a virtuous life of service to humanity, which is not related with belonging to an organized group or devotional practice. It is basically your innate quality to help humanity without looking for an ulterior motive. Being self-less. Humanity is you.
Sincerity, honesty. Back to the basics.
Moreover, those qualities do not appear all of a sudden in this “lifetime,” but as we are aware of the law of karma, we recognize that what we are here “today” is nothing else but the consequence of other activities in our past lives.
Thus, angels are “meant to be,” not something that happens all of a sudden out of just joining a group or performing “important” deeds. Angels are helping hands to humanity. The rest is devotional imagination.
It is important to know that in life, every experience that someone goes through will lead that person to his destination, which is none but to experience the range of his own spiritual capacity.
The inner work of a person who will become an “angel” is not easy, for there is nothing as hard as to take the “rust out of the self,” it is like peeling your own skin of cover ups, weaknesses and complexes; just to be free and light, again.
Light so you can be light for others.
Life “tests” and experiences are meant to clean up an individual. The tests are many and there is no “failure” there but just the appreciation of your own capacity for spiritual growth.
The bus of destiny will unload some individuals at different corners according to their roles in life. That is their capacity. Stop signs are located at every corner. Only few will go the whole ride to the last bus stop and this capacity, will bring help from “up above.”
All is good. Life is good… 🙂
Mystery of “Numberwise:” Many times I heard the word “numberwise” in the sakar murlis and ayakta murlis. Initially, I used to think that “numberwise” means ranking i.e. one is better than two and so on. But with this understanding there is inferiority complex, comparison etc. Later, I followed this blog and churn over the “numberwise”. I realised that “numberwise” is not ranking and may not comparison. It is combination of time in the drama and emergence of sanskar of that particular soul actor. It is emergence of fullest virtue/vice of that soul actor which is supported by drama. Hence, a beautiful scene in this unlimited drama emerges. Each scene in this unlimited drama should be enjoyed by the soul as actor and spectator, because that is naturally happening: no ego. As all actors in the limited drama cannot come altogether similarly, in this unlimited drama different actor play their role at different time. Although, they are different but everyone’s role is important to complete the drama. Finally I could understand it: “Everybody is king at their own time as per their capacity”. Respected brother this is my first ever writing in the BK gyan. Hence, your suggestion and comments and advice are appreciated so I can improve upon it. BK Pravin Patil, Pune, India.
Thank you for sharing your “churnings.” (realizations)
To realize that we are actors and spectators at the same time is no small thing.
As you mentioned, everyone’s part is important to complete this Drama, for everything is in synchronicity. As you mentioned, everyone will have their “time,” for “this Drama is created in a very lawful manner,” as the Sakar Murli mentioned today.
Thank you again for sharing your realizations. The topic of “numberwise” is one of the most important aspects in Gyan to realize for then, we could see beauty in variety rather than “everyone should do the same,” we could see time and capacity of a soul, rather than “everyone must be this, otherwise punishment will be waiting for you, etc.”
Congrats and Best wishes!
Thank you for your question!
Dear soul, Many thanks for your kind words. I appreciate your role… 🙂 just keep in mind that this role is doing this as a means of “survival” in BK life… but glad to know that “my survival” is giving happiness to others. Thanks again! 🙂 and.. you are not disturbing me, but helping me and others to understand gyan better.
Interesting question. It is a matter of semantics. Souls are the same as “souls,” but as you mentioned we are different in capacity, roles, and anything else. As you mentioned, because of that; being “equal to the Father” is not the same for you as it would be for someone else, because our capacities are different. This difference of capacities should bring appreciation for others, because someone may have a greater capacity to compose music than someone else who is in turn a great dancer. Brahma Baba’s #1 capacity is to be soul conscious.
“The Drama is beneficial for all.”
7. Embrace duality do not select.
We have been taught to select good against bad. Day over night. God over Ravan, etc.
When we see things in the “unlimited” there is no such a thing as “making a choice” or selecting. Why? Because things have to happen as they are. Therefore, to say that those things are “bad” or “good” is just to select one aspect of them and to deny the other.
This is why Baba says “According to time.” According to time we need to be at some place so we can flow with the Drama. The Drama is already moving in a particular direction and we just move with it. Connect with it. We are not selecting, we are not denying Ravan, the night or evil. We embrace everything in the “unlimited” because everything is needed in the “big picture.”
The understanding of this point will liberate us of our petty morality. There is no morality in the Drama. We have moral values, codes, laws etc. which create lawyers and judges and nullify our ability to be. The issue is that through Baba’s knowledge we can “be” according to time. This knowledge is not there so we can be “Good” forever. No. This knowledge disappears as well at the right time.
Similarly the capacity of a soul to withstand suffering is the same capacity to withstand happiness. That ability creates a “number.” That number gives variety to this Drama and that variety allows “movement.” Variety increases as time increases from “day 1.”
Practically, this point shall teach us that we cannot fight within ourselves. We cannot deny, suppress and repress the Ravan inside. We just have to accept that it is there, be aware of it and move “according to time.” The battle will be won as long as we are aware that daylight must appear and that we have the “aim and objective clear” in our whole being. It is just a matter of time. There is no battle to be won. It is a game.
4. Because everyone experiences hell. Everyone experiences heaven.
Only BKs get liberation and liberation in life
This point expresses duality. It is a very important point.
Heaven and Hell are experiences not places. In the Golden age there is no knowledge of heaven or hell. From the “iron age” perspective if you are a BK, that is heaven. From the perspective of a new soul, “this” is heaven.
Other points coming from this seemingly inoffensive deep point are as follows:
1) Your length of time of experiencing heaven is equal to your length of time experiencing hell.
2) From a BK perspective 2500 years of heaven is matched by 2500 years of hell (suffering) That intensity is gradual like when day light transforms into night time and that experience differs from soul to soul.
3)The longer time you act in the physical world, the shortest your stay will be at “home.” (soul world.)
4) The greatest the capacity of a soul is to stand happiness, likewise that same capacity will be great to stand suffering.
5) Everyone gets a karmic account according to capacity. If you performed a karmic activity, you have the capacity to stand the consequences.
6) The highest pure being also becomes the most impure of all. A deity has the potential and the capacity to be a devil.
7) No one is better off than no one else. Just different experiences. Those experiences have a high and consequently a low which is equal in intensity but in the opposite direction.
8) God exists only because Ravan exists. God is the solution but also the problem. 🙂 there is no solution without a problem, nor problem without a solution.
