Thank you for your nice question!
BapDada is giving you that “end result.” Smiling is not something that we “practice.” It is not something that we “act” and fake to others. Smiling is what appears automatically when we are content, happy. If you have seen someone with a very frank smile, you will know what I mean. It is not about showing your teeth or making a face. A spiritual smile is the outcome of a happy heart. Likewise with thoughts. You think something, we can put it into the “wasteful,” “negative” or “positive,” baskets. BapDada teaches us to transform “negative into positive,” but also He has taught us to “be” merged in remembrance so we could be used as instruments.
Dear soul, as a housewife you have plenty of opportunities to do “seva.” Your immediate family, relatives, when you go shopping, etc. The only thing that matter is your internal stage. “Service” comes from that. Therefore, I urge you to have greater experience in meditation, then those vibrations and that drishti and that smile will come out automatically without your thinking about it. That is “unlimited seva” dear soul… 🙂
The proof that it is working for others, is when it is working for yourself. Check that you are changing, transforming and “others” will tell you that, when they see that; you know it is working…
Thank you for your great question!
“Seva” or “service” is the consequence of self transformation, through Gyan (Knowledge,) yoga (experience of the self and God) and Dharna or (inculcation of divine virtues.) That is Raja Yoga 101.
In a nutshell, as you change yourself then automatically there will be service on the same extent, because we exist in relationship with “others.”
“Service” is not something that you “do.” It is the consequence of “being” transformed. In that, you can make “photocopies for Baba,” if your consciousness is the right one, so you are irradiating peace; that is service.
One more time, your “doing” is always in function of what you are. You cannot benefit anyone unless there has been benefit on the self first.
“To do things” or adquire things for the benefit of others, depends on your resources; your “karma.” But to “do things” as to everything you “do” is service; that means to be “service itself,” then you do not need to worry about “what to do” anymore.
The avyakt Murli from yesterday (8-26-12) made me think in many ways.
BapDada mentioned that the aim of foreigners should be to “wake up the Kumbakharnas of Bharat.” “The Drama has that fixed in it.” That is the aim of service for “double foreigners.”
One of the realizations that I had was based on the use of the Sakar Murli these days.
Many “double foreigners,” who have been in Gyan for sometime, will be fond of the avyakt Murlis.
Let me disclose as well, that I am. I used to love Sakar Murlis in the beginning of my BK days in this life, now; it seems as if I already now how to add and subtract; so I am happy to know that “multiplication and division” are out there for me to learn; so I do not get bored.. 🙂 As you know, it doesn’t hurt to review addition and subtraction either 🙂
That incentive to learn by experience is the Avyakt Murli for me. I am learning more through them at this point of my BK career.
However, the majority of Indian/ Bharat based BKs now that I know of, love the Sakar Murli.
They rather have a Sakar Murli. 🙂
Let us not forget that “double foreigners” now have been residents of Bharat for many lives, probably form the “beginning.” 🙂
Therefore, according to BapDada’s instructions, “service” means that I will cater towards “my customers.” 🙂 More Sakar Murlis for everyone! Bharat is the land of Brahmin souls, so it makes sense to serve in that land even from abroad and use the openness that Bharatwasis have towards learning from Foreigners. Western culture and ways are everywhere!
Nevertheless, the way we view those Sakar Murlis for “service” will change.
Because according to time, we cannot have an “exclusive” vision ; that Is “God has adopted BKs” and no one else.
God is helping BKs now…. BKs get heaven by studying this study… everyone else will settle their karmic accounts through punishment and go back home.
No heaven for them, just punishment and the experience of “hell” now.
The challenge now is to “Globalize” those teachings; not by changing them but by going into a deeper understanding of those points. Depth is the answer rather than simplicity.
The problem with simplicity is that it generalizes statements (Black or White understanding) which does not fit an “unlimited” view of the Drama.
Because this knowledge is “true” and deep, then it should fit all souls in the Drama in a “numberwise” fashion. That aim, is what I am encountering more and more in this blog. (It wasn’t “my” thought.)
As times are changing, methods change; but it is the same “aim and objective,” nevertheless.
