Question: OM SHANTI: I am BK Kushal from Nairobi,Kenya. I wanted to say that I want full details of the Seed, Kalpa Tree and the Eternal World Drama Cycle because I want to become a spinner of the discus of self-realization.
Thank you for your question.
You can do a search on those terms in the blog. Many articles have been written already on your questions.
Here is one on “spinning the discus”
As far as the knowledge of the “seed and the kalpa tree,” it is very simple. From One,(seed) it goes to many (tree) just to become One again. From one way of doing things, it goes into many ways (variety) so it can go back into one way again.
From one religion, it goes into many so it can become one again. From One language, it goes into many languages so it can become one language again…. Do you get the idea? 🙂
Thanks for stopping by and my greetings to all BKs in Kenya!
The great knowledge of the Seed and the Tree.
If we can understand the graphic above, we will be able to grasp the whole knowledge.
It is the movement from the inside of a seed which little by little breaks down and propels “souls” through a circular pattern. The first inner circle is known as the “Golden age,” then those souls will be taking rebirth until getting into the second circle (silver age) then the third circle (copper age) and finally the 4th circle (Iron age.) Note that the souls ahead will be propelled by the souls behind as the souls ahead will lose “momentum.” There is continuous movement in every circular chamber with every seed particle (soul) coming with greater force (power) into expansion. Once the 4th circle is completed, those souls will take the “shuttle,” the tube or line back to the seed. That is it.
This is the knowledge about us souls. The seed expands into a tree just to become a seed again once it reaches maximum expansion. This movement is eternal and identical in every iteration.
“Enjoy it, it is just a ride.”
Parallels between Hinduism and Christianity
It is interesting to note that all religions are connected, for as we know, the trunk is one; and from that trunk; many branches will emerge (religions.) The trunk comes from the seed which is the “unmanifest,” the absolute; which will evolve into the “manifest” or relative.
The above terminology is borrowed from Mr. Wolfe’s writing. Titled “Parallel teachings of Hinduism and Christianity,” which is in a link above for your review. If you do not have time to read any other pages, I would strongly suggest reading the appendix titled: “Brahman and the concept of Supreme God.” (Page 23.)
Here we see the constant change in paradoxical views of reality. To take one side of the coin as the whole coin is just to miss the complete coin.
Taoism with its concept of “Tao,” explained this reality which cannot be put into words; that is what in Brahma Kumaris is known as the Drama. Zen Buddhism added that even though the truth cannot be put into words, it needs to be explained with words… That is why, we have “interpretations.” 🙂
Similarly, the conceptualization of God as a “personal God” or an “impersonal God” through the forces of the Drama is viewed. (See explanation by Mr. Wolfe) It just depends on our viewpoint and understanding. In other words what we perceive as a separate entity, as God; may not be manifested by itself; but its experience encompasses the timing of the impersonal Drama as well. It is a game of both coming together and being experienced either as “separate” or as the “same” according to our understanding.
The leaf on a tree had one side of it colored yellow due to being exposed to a burning sun. The other side of it, was green; because it wasn’t exposed to the brutal sun.
Two birds were discussing about the color on that leaf. One was positioned on the floor, looking up. That bird saw the color of the leaf as being green. The other bird was positioned at the top of the tree, looking down and perceived the color of the leaf as being yellow.
None of those birds wanted to meet each other to see the other viewpoint, but rather defended their position with attachment to their own perceptions. Even though both of them were right; at the same time; they were wrong. Paradox.
Moral: Listening to someone means to put my ideas aside and to meet that person from his perspective, to understand.
