If you ever wanted to know how “life/Drama works” according to Raja Yoga gyan, in easy to understand steps; that you could communicate to anyone; here is the “churning” (realization) fresh from the “inner bakery” 🙂
Life, which is known as “Drama” is ONE (1.) That is all it has ever existed. There is nothing before it. It is eternal.
Life or the Drama is in continuous movement; that is matter and energy continuously transform. That perception of change, is what we call as “time.”
That change, that movement, experiences entropy. That means that it “degrades” in quality. It is “numberwise” and it is reflected by the souls arriving to the Drama of life at a certain point in time. This experience of “entropy” could be divided into “soul consciousness” and “body consciousness.”(2) Two.
Soul consciousness means non-duality (1)
Body consciousness is duality (2) Therefore, that is (3) Three in the Drama.
Finally, Soul consciousness has 2 seasons: Spring and Summer.
Body consciousness has 2 seasons as well: Fall and Winter.
Those (4) seasons make up the cycle of time; also known as Golden, Silver, Copper and Iron ages.
As we can see, the Drama is ONE.
The Drama is TWO
The Drama is THREE
The Drama is FOUR.
From ONE, it expands through entropy, (into 2,3, and 4) so it can collapse into ONE again.
From the seed it expands into a tree of many things to collapse into the seed again.
Therefore, to understand knowledge is to know the “seed” and its capacity to expand.
Now some Trivia: 🙂
The numerical progression on number of births according to Gyan.
Soul consciousness: 8+ 12 = 20 plus 1 at the “confluence age” when coming from body consciousness into soul consciousness; that is equal to 21.
Copper age number of births = to Golden age + Silver age+ Confluence age.
That is 21 births in the Copper age = to the same number of 21 births in soul consciousness.
Iron age is equal to twice as much as the Copper age (42) or twice as much as the Golden + Silver + Confluence age number of births.
That “one” birth is a transitional birth on the same physical body; thus we can also say that we can get as many as 83 different bodies in the cycle of time, but we can take as many as 84 births… 🙂
Thank you for your question!
It appears that being a BK soul and enjoying “21 births of happiness” comes with the price of “enjoying” 2 “destructions:” The one at the end of the confluence age between the Iron age and the Golden age along with other souls… and the one at the end of the Silver age, which is just for BK souls to “experience.” 🙂
Those destructions happen when “duality” starts and when “duality” finishes. Duality starts when body consciousness starts and it finishes when soul consciousness starts.
According to gyan, Hinduism is the “Deity religion” in its “copper” and “iron” age state.
Baba has mentioned that there is “Deitism,” (Golden age) then the “Warrior clan” (Silver age) which obviously continued in the “Copper age” as Hinduism.
As we know, Hinduism does not have a “founder” like the other major religions. What is the reason? Because It came from before the Copper age. That is why, it is known as the “oldest major living religion of the world,” however, without a founder 🙂
Even the name “Hinduism” does not denote the name of a founder nor a religious ideal. It basically came to describe people living near the Indus River.
Therefore, Hinduism is portrayed in the kalpa tree as “Adi Sanatan Devi Devta Dharam” (Original Eternal Deity Religion- now, it makes sense why it is “eternal.”) Which is “Hinduism” in its most elevated state; (Deitism) and now we can see that “Hinduism” did not emerge in the Copper age, but it is “eternal.” It has existed with different names throughout time.
This is a great churning point.
