Childish beliefs of a religion near you

Slide1

As we come to terms with suffering as an opportunity to renew our consciousness, then that rejection of suffering as a traumatic experience disappears. Suffering becomes another experience and its intensity only matches the size of our ego driven life.

Therefore, do we want to pray to God to “deliver us from evil”?
Do we want to ask God to “take away our suffering”?

For the one who understands that life is not a random event but a planned game of eternal but yet ever-changing conscious energies meant to recycle itself, for that person there is no worship necessary or a divine indulgence needed to live life.

Paradoxically we could express ourselves like Voltaire:
“May God defend me from my friends: I can defend myself from my enemies. “
But for the one who does not indulge in the duality of thinking, we could express, as Master Kahn would say:
“Deal with evil from strength, but affirm the good in man through trust.”

Different states of consciousness.

The child will cry to obtain a favor from his Father. A man will deal with issues with his acquired wisdom and trust in life.
When a man comes out of the consciousness of a child, religious games of eccentric beliefs are naturally discarded.

There is no need to act in a certain way for fear of punishment or everlasting damnation. Actions are meant to happen according to what a man has in his heart. Those actions are neither “good nor bad” but necessary as the state of consciousness “is.” However, there is a consequence that will be experienced.
That consequence is not labeled either as suffering nor pleasure but just as life experiences.
What becomes important to learn is not to distinguish between “good and bad” actions, but to discover the intention of our hearts. Those intentions are the seeds for feelings and those feelings will be the ones displaying our essence in life, the way we manifest to others.

In Life we do not learn about “good or bad.” That is for little children. We learn to be in balance by not rejecting energies but by transforming them according to the need of time and circumstances.
As such there cannot be a “code of conduct” that will be acted upon on every single occasion, but rather the different experiences in life become the sand box for manifesting the feelings behind the actions.

When we are aware of those feelings, we could transform our lives.

Someone sent me an email about a “scientific paper that will reveal God.”
There cannot be God’s revelation through a paper, or any human idea. There can only be your own revelation in harmony with “what is.” That, does not require any wording or writing.

Someone sent me an email stating the date for Armageddon, destruction.
When you are living life from your heart, there is always a new beginning. Life is not a man-made by-product, thus; man cannot destroy it. There has always been transformation and nothing is static but ever-changing.

In a childish mind, we could be prompted to join a religion so we could “save ourselves” from being destroyed. Destruction and Creation happens all the time at every second. Consciousness is eternal and it is not dependent on anyone to exist.
It just is.

As we dispose ourselves from the diapers of a childish consciousness, we may see that the immensity of life cannot fit in the security of a baby’s crib.
A child is meant to grow up and live life, to learn by living life (not by making mistakes) to develop by engaging his life with the Totality… that is unless he wants to hold onto his childish beliefs.

Different consciousness

Every human being has a way of looking at things. That is what could be called their consciousness. When human beings decide to live together, then a collective consciousness arises.

That collective consciousness is a particular way to look at things. It is “their truth.” That is how “being right” or “being wrong” arises.
We only have perceptions and when we strongly believe in a perception, that becomes our reality.

For instance the Inca Empire had a particular belief system. They worshiped Nature and their God Wiracocha was a representation of Nature, especially related with the sea. Once the Spanish conquistadores assumed control of most of South America, then their collective belief system was imposed to the indigenous people due to a ‘religious purification policy’ ( Religious beliefs which in turn came from the Roman Empire) that was going on in Europe at that time, against Christian non-believers.

The queen Isabella from Spain, claimed the indigenous people as their subjects and that is how Christianity appeared in South America.

The above example is not meant to exemplify “good people” and “bad people,” because that does not exist. What exists however is fear to accept someone who is different. The Inca Empire was built by conquering and killing “others” as well. Many smaller cultures were wiped out by the Inca Empire.

Similarly, we have seen the same behavior portrayed by the “ great protagonists” of World History: Alexander the Great, Napoleon Bonaparte, Genghis Khan, Adolf Hitler, etc.

It is the belief of historians that those who have destroyed the most, should be remembered the most. 🙂

This is a clash of consciousness. Nevertheless, in such events what prevails is human brutality. The “change” of someone by the use of force.

That is the way people act even now. It is what is mildly called as “survival of the fittest.”
This is the culture of competition, the ‘winner’ mentality, the ‘cool’ but heartless fighter, the business deal with a kickback included, the “take care of number one” culture, etc.

As our awareness increases, then a sense of openness to other types of consciousness arises. That is not meant to “change you” but being open means to give yourself the opportunity to know and experience things which will be invaluable to understand “others,” by having a first hand experience.

Spirituality at this point in time, is about opening our consciousness from that individuality and rather than “tolerate others,” there is a sense of togetherness.

Reasons and logic do not change consciousness. Neither force or a belief in a particular God.

A logical and reasonable dishonest person could do harm when he only perceives “him” as being the world.

A brutal army can only kill to stop opposition when they perceive “them” as being the world.

A religion can become a tyranny once there is the perception of “them” being the only ones having the truth. The chosen ones.

However, those who have a violent life will experience a violent death.
That is the “law” in life. Not a human law.

As the consciousness of the human being remains unchanged, deeply settled into individuality and his own cultural beliefs, even though technology evolves, “progresses;” then that human being with an egocentrically babyish consciousness, will have the “toys” to continue his tantrum of destroying “obstacles” at a greater scale…until he realizes that the world is him.

Let us hope it is not too late.

Question on Brahma Kumaris beliefs

“SCIENCE VERSUS 5000 YEARS OF TIME CYCLE ! following are my questions.. 1.)5000 years of world drama is said to be like a recorded cd ,which plays the same thing even if repeated N no.of times if so, then what is the significance of the KARMIC ACCOUNT, what is my role here? all my thoughts and actions become predetermined then how can we say we create our own destiny? 2.)If the destruction of this world is going to happen with NUCLEAR WARFARE it will make the entire planet inhabitable for the next hundreds or thousand’s of years,{ japan is an example,even now radiation and related diseases persists in those regions} earth will become more polluted and hostile than ever before ! if so then when will SATYUG the GOLDEN AGE start? it will have to take a long break! 3.)The existence of DINOSAURS and other extinct life forms on EARTH is confirmed by SCIENCE, fossil remains and carbon dating results are proofs for their existence but, there is no mention in our 5000 year cycle that such species existed, did GOD FORGET THEM?.”

Dear reader,
Thank you for your questions!
I am afraid your questions came a bit late… This blog changed its path a couple of months ago from Brahma Kumaris knowledge to Spiritual knowledge in general and for all.

However, i will use this opportunity to give additional explanation and then answer your questions.. so bear with me! 🙂

Beliefs are out. Experience is in. A couple of days ago, it was shared that once the realization about our own eternity is experienced, then beliefs are useless.

Beliefs are “good,” when someone experiences protection and support through a religious system. It is the time for reformation.
Beliefs are “bad,” when they “box you,” and seclude your experience of life and make you part of the “cookie cutter” machinery.

Therefore, beliefs are neither “good, nor bad,” but useful according to someone’s timing in life.

In my experience, out of all the beliefs systems that I have been exposed to (Many, I need to say) Brahma Kumaris knowledge is the most complete, the most reasonable, intellectually speaking. This blog has plenty of articles about that.

The issue has been the way it was interpreted.

Here a little example:
So you know about an eternal, repetitive cycle. Then, why make so much fuss about “destruction,” when we can realize about our own eternity? Think about that.

So you know about an eternal, predestined movie; therefore, what you think you do out of your free will, is part of that movie. Your free will is predestination and predestination is your experience of free will. 🙂
This is just an intellectual concept, but there is the experience which is most important.

When you realize about your own eternity, then the movie of “doing things,” should not matter, when “being” is the most important thing. As it is “being” then “doing” aligns. This is what this blog has emphasized.

When the “little child” needs reformation, the “scary” thought of “destruction is just ahead,” makes you do something to earn your “paradise..” Do you see that? Death by itself is not scary enough, for everyone will die some day… But to be “saved” from destruction, makes it special… There is no death, but we die. I hope you could grasp this.. I know you will 🙂 There is “destruction” but we are eternal? I hope this is not hard to understand… 🙂

In my experience, the whole “experience” in Brahma Kumaris was to “reform myself.” Celibacy is the main ingredient that Brahma Kumaris uses for that. This does not mean that celibacy is “good” or “bad.” It is the “tool” used for reformation.
Why?
Even though it is one of the toughest “tools” for reformation, celibacy will allow you to experience a different consciousness when we are not repressing ourselves. This is the challenge. This is not only physical repression, but also emotional and how you approach life despite your unusual practice, will dictate your degree of “advancement.” Once you have experienced that consciousness, then you know better.

That is my experience in a “nutshell.” I would have not been able to go through it, if I did not have divine help. Here is where your “karma” comes into the picture. This “spiritual bug” comes from many past lives not just this one.

OK.. now into your questions 🙂

1.)5000 years of world drama is said to be like a recorded cd ,which plays the same thing even if repeated N no.of times if so, then what is the significance of the KARMIC ACCOUNT, what is my role here? all my thoughts and actions become predetermined then how can we say we create our own destiny?

Your karmic account is your own movie included in the “big movie.” The Drama. Your role is what you will experience as “doing.” In reality, you do not do anything… 🙂 but because you believe you do; then you do. 🙂

You “create” your destiny when you believe that you have “free will.” You do not create your destiny when you believe that everything is “predestined.” If you do not have “beliefs,” then everything moves as it should.

2.)If the destruction of this world is going to happen with NUCLEAR WARFARE it will make the entire planet inhabitable for the next hundreds or thousand’s of years,{ japan is an example,even now radiation and related diseases persists in those regions} earth will become more polluted and hostile than ever before ! if so then when will SATYUG the GOLDEN AGE start? it will have to take a long break!

Please see how many “beliefs” you are introducing in your question. Your belief of Nuclear warfare, is not completely accurate if you studied the Brahma Kumaris daily scriptures. In that belief system, there is a mention of natural disasters, famine, drought, diseases… Things that you did not account for in your belief. Also, It is mentioned in the Brahma Kumaris belief system, that there will not be a nuclear issue in Bharat and the rest of the continents will go under the oceans. Scary movie… huh? 🙂
Thus, your belief of Nuclear disaster surrounding the whole planet and making the Earth poisonous to live… is just another belief. 🙂

3.)The existence of DINOSAURS and other extinct life forms on EARTH is confirmed by SCIENCE, fossil remains and carbon dating results are proofs for their existence but, there is no mention in our 5000 year cycle that such species existed, did GOD FORGET THEM?.”

Dear reader, “confirmed by science,” is meaningless when we are talking about life. Your belief in science as the holder of “truth,” is just a belief.
How?
Life is more than the physical realm which is what science deals with. here is your definition of science:
“The intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment.”
In spirituality we can experience that there are many realms beyond the physicality of life, which are integrated. The proof is your own experience.

Quantum mechanics is getting closer to that “reality,” which makes “randomness” and “probabilities” scientific terms to use, when they only denote lack of scientific certainty.

Now, dear reader, I will ask you to please read the tab titled “scientific tales” for a through and convincing ride into the realm of tales for grown ups…
http://avyakt7.com/category/scientific-tales/

There all your questions about the 5000 year belief deal, the dinosaur belief deal and all such beliefs, are answered there. Otherwise, you could type the keyword “dinosaur” in the blog, and you will find articles related with that topic.

Dear reader, It has been a pleasure to reply to your questions, but let me inform you that avyakt7 has “retired” from intellectual debates and logical thinking when related with spirituality and the experience of life. At work I may need to use those skills, but then after those hours of earning my “paycheck” have gone away… those skills are “submerged.” 🙂

However, avyakt7 had his time in that “realm” and articles are available in this blog for those who would like to spend time on such things…

Best wishes!

This is all….Nighttime changing into daylight

polyp_cartoon_save_the_planet

Some people figured out that there is drinking water scarcity, that climate is changing unexpectedly and with that a new pattern for wildlife is being created. Natural resources are being utilized more than ever, population is growing exponentially using up all of our resources, etc. etc.

Some people concluded that we are destroying our planet by depleting it.

Other people are afraid of the political changing governments of many countries in the world. They are afraid of terrorism overtaking and destroying different countries. They are afraid of “developed countries” financing the outcome of wars by providing “upgraded” armaments to less developed countries in the name of “freedom and democracy.”

These people see that a nuclear war could be started at any time. There is fear for destruction.

Then, you have the other side of duality.

Those who claim that all of that is “nonsense.” There are no “proofs,” for any of that and those observations come from negative and mentally handicapped people, sensationalist trying to make “a dollar.”

As a matter of fact, these people see the world as a better place to be. They argue that we have more comfort, more technology which is capable of solving all problems. The statistics of life expectancy are going up, there is life insurance, medical benefits, education and TV… the forces of the “market” are decisive in the economical growth of nations, so all efforts should be made to encourage further use of natural resources of the planet, which are plentiful.

The masses, when listening to contradictory versions, will go for the easy ride and just watch cricket or football instead. Entertainment is good!
Who cares about those things when they have a job, a family and pets to take care of?

Just in case, Mr. politician will come to help out. “We should get together and come up with plans to solve any situation which could affect the future and well being of our children. We should remain united, for our children are the future of our nations.”

Applauses and ovations for such a “great solution” are expected. That guy, really knows what he is talking about. It is about time to get that sort of solution. He will be elected again.

In the meantime, Religions will talk about “doomsday.” It is time to forget about the world and think about the after life. Be good. Do good and leave the rest to God. Keep praying.

Everyone has their own role in this Drama of life. Everyone has a part to play.

While people keep thinking about “making changes,” and “doing things,” to save the world; others are busy destroying it to maintain the “holy” forces of the economical markets going. The law of “supply and demand” is more important than any other law.

That is an example of unity.

In the meantime, some may sit and relax watching how nighttime changes into daylight.

No matter what people “want to do,” no matter what “upgraded” technology people has, still daylight will come. It is just a matter of time.

Therefore:
Is the world getting better?
Of course, it is. Day light is coming.
Is the world getting worse?
Certainly. Nighttime is disappearing little by little.
Paradox.

It is just the game of the night changing into daylight.
Do not get scared by being trapped into more dualistic words.

All is good for eternal beings while playing their role. Just a role. Roll on! 🙂

Salvation to all … is a lunch break to all.

Salvation
One of the lines of Gyan which will need our undivided attention is to find out how is “God the one who gives salvation to all.”

As this role perceives it, the issue with “praising God” by using well known religious lines ( Christianity has that line as well) is that “pure Gyan” may not be able to fit that description.

In “Pure Gyan,” we can observe how experiencing and expressing a role, is all there is. In this circle of life; there is no such an “arrival” as “salvation.”
WHY?
Because I am here. I will be here writing this in 5000 years despite of what I may do in between. That is a warranty of the eternity of this role. Ladies and Gentlemen, I am here to stay… 🙂

Everything is “temporary but eternal.” That is a huge paradox to understand.

If going to the soul world is “salvation,” then getting out of it, is not.. 🙂 The “news” is that we will be “in” and “out” as an “unlimited tourist.” Therefore, where is that salvation?

If salvation is to get to the Golden age, then how is it possible for “everyone” to get “salvation”?
The word “salvation” is a loaded word.
“Salvation” is a 15 minute break for some or 45 minute break for others. That is all. It is a “lunch break.”

When looking at Gyan then, it is important to take a look at it without the pre-conception of “loaded words, “ that is words which mean something which they may not truly represent.

It would be advisable to see Gyan as it is; destruction is not really destruction, but “transformation” based on the fact, that we are eternal souls. Just as when one of our teeth is being pulled (hopefully by a dentist,) we may feel pain, but that is not the “end of the world.” (Another “pun…” sorry.)

To look at things in an “unlimited way,” is to go beyond the boundaries of this “existence.” That is why we have the knowledge of the cycle of time. That is why, we are “trikaldarshi” at this time.

Destruction is as natural as Creation. One cannot go without the other. That is the “natural” law in the world of duality. When we become aware of this circle of life, transformation is what we will be able to see. Nothing is static, but just our own mind set… Sometimes. 🙂

Question: If one do not remember god in the end then also he will be liberated,will not take rebirth due to that “last thought” because new age will start then.Also it is mentioned in murli if one atleast know this knowledge / read murli then he will come into golden age,then how come it is so important to b aware about last thought to decide where to go next..as many time we hear from murli “Ant gati so mati”.

Thank you for your good question!

Dear soul,

Please remember the first “rule of thumb” in understanding Sakar Murlis at this time:
“You shall not take things literally.”

Sakar Murlis had a purpose. That was to “pep talk” (instill enthusiasm/ bolster morale)to the “little children.” For that Baba’s methodology was to “make the children tough,” in preparation of the experience of “destruction.” ( This is a “dirty, old, impure body;” this is hell, a tasteless world, you just have to tolerate a few more days of this, before you rule in the Golden age, etc, etc.) As we know, even though in those times, it looked like a “third world war,” was coming; it did not. Brahma Baba had visions, but certainly he didn’t know when they were going to happen. Many assumed that to be “soon.”

It is believed that the “children” could make “more efforts,” if they knew about “destruction being just ahead.” That has been BapDada’s training line as well due to his role as the “Father,” for otherwise (as the Murli stated a few days before) we have very lazy sanskaras in us. As stated many times, the number 1 role of BapDada is not to allow lethargy, laziness and lack of enthusiasm to overtake us. For that He has a “bag full of tricks.” 🙂

Destruction will happen. It is a law in Nature. Every culture has reached a pinnacle and then disappeared. Nevertheless, we know that it is a cycle which is eternally repeating.

Unfortunately, many souls are “terrified” by the thought of “destruction,” letting us know how much they have really imbibed the knowledge. At the same time, those souls looking for “life insurance” have searched for ways to live in India or around Mt. Abu, just in case and they feel “safe” there.

I guess they do not realize that they are eternal. That it is a repetitive cycle and that this birth is one among many others. It is about saving this “old skin” after all.

Similarly, Brahma Baba wanted for the children to “do service,” by letting everyone know about this “destruction,” which was near; because Baba wanted for everyone to know about “salvation” through this knowledge. That was his selfless motivation to serve and to spread this knowledge based on the divine experiences that he had. Then, if everyone at least heard this knowledge once, or if they heard a Murli once; that meant that these souls had some interest in Gyan due to the “doings” of a serviceable child. At the same time, if a “child” remembered God at the end “accurately,” that meant that this soul could go to “heaven,” after going through the soul world also dearly known as “home.”

However, to “remember God accurately at the end” it is not a “child’s play.” To get to that point, there has to be previous inner work, when we will not be affected by nothing externally or internally.

Therefore, hopefully in this long explanation your question was answered. We need to be aware of the reasons as why Brahma Baba related Gyan the way he did and have understanding of the “times,” and “circumstances,” and his own experiences.

Best wishes!

Question: s the pole shift &mayan philosophy says destruction happened just 2500 years back.Did it happened at end of silver age?did deity souls recieve any idea about it like we are getting now.how can they be part of that when they were in karmateet/life- liberated stage with negligible karmic accounts.

Thank you for your question!

Dear soul,

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.

Best wishes!
