“Brother, thanking you immensely for everything. I would like to share my experience to express my gratitude. An example of what you are stating about knowing your truth, embracing change and experiencing it. Not being a writer it’s a bit hard to express and also being a very private person who has never shared such things it has taken a lot of courage but somehow felt now is the right time to share this with you especially with the changes that you have made with the blog I felt that you too took a courageous step and not that you need any encouragement but this is a token of appreciation of how you are benefiting this soul. What I am experiencing would certainly not be unique and must be many others experience as well. Your explanations have had a profound impact for which I am ever grateful.
Coming from a Science/inquiring background and seeing the path of my life and how chance encounters, people and messages were leading me, I had been documenting the same without much thought. It’s only now when I re-read it I realize I have always had an innate need to know ‘Who I am’ and how Choice and Chance create Destiny from a very early age. I did feel different and a misfit but did not know why and it had never bothered me. I had had some realizations but somehow got lost in between. I had succumbed to your blog earlier as well but somehow since I did not understand the BK language, I did not attempt to explore any further.
I had always wanted to study ancient scriptures at a university but never got around it but that’s how I found out about the BKWSU but never pursued it. I have never been a devotional religious person but having lived in a country where religion is deep rooted and certain rituals being followed in every family (mine included) I have never disrespected others beliefs and participated in them but had too many questions which were disturbing me and have never been a true follower. A few months back, challenging circumstances and some questions led me to visit the BKWSU website and write a mail; a BK soul emailed me the correspondence course in Raj Yoga Meditation and some doubts led me to discover your blog again.
Simultaneously, the same question of Choice and Chance led me to attend a BK event in my city, which I knew would not be able to answer my question; however, that very same day someone else had asked a similar question on your blog. So it led me to explore your explanations in depth along with following certain practices which had been evolving gradually over the past few years. What I felt getting to know what you describe as pure gyan is indescribable, for the first time in my life I felt I could understand myself better. Obviously, I am too new and taking baby steps, even after ‘getting it’ intellectually, I still had my doubts; however, they are being resolved. I am a contented, hopeful work in progress.
You have an instrumental role in it and I am ever so grateful for that. Strangely, even just thinking of something you seem to answer it for someone else or write about it. If I shall write down the instances, it may come as a surprise to you or maybe not. The first initial times it was way unreal for me. Just as an example, I shall write a few instances. I had come across the ‘Dr Quantum’ video on YouTube however; I could not comprehend what exactly was meant by the observer that they had shown – i.e. what was making the particle behave like matter and was sincerely contemplating on it, the very next day you wrote about it and my doubts were clarified. My aunt visited and was talking nonstop about Akshavatra Geeta and asked my brother to get a Hindi version for her and an English version for me to read. The English version was not available that didn’t matter much to me but I had the assurance that I would read it if and when I am meant to. A day later you posted a readers link to the same, to be honest not that I understood the whole thing but got the gist that you explained. Too many occurrences and changes I have been observing happening in my life for a while and since yesterday, I have been contemplating about intuition and you wrote about it. I would probably not be able to grasp these ideas had it not been for your crisp explanation. So have no ways to thank you and all the higher energies and influences enabling you to do the service that you are doing.
Another instance that I would like to share, coming back to the pure gyan and the 5000 year question. Since, the gyan and the blog were truly helping me in a manner for which I shall always be grateful. I never questioned the ‘5000 year’ time frame but sincerely asked for a concrete sign for me to know that it is the truth for me and I wasn’t going crazy (I am being honest).
What happened is an AHA moment for me. I happened to watch the video on your blog which talks about planetary alignments and the details of the Pyramids in Egypt, found it super interesting as I love astronomy, ancient architecture; however it confused me as well. I immediately asked a question pertaining that to you. After writing it down, I went to check on my brother, who had met with an accident and was resting at home. He was watching a movie; I normally do not watch movies during the day more so, mid way. Since, he was watching a movie with one of my favorite actors ‘Angelina Jolie’, and the movie was also about talking about some planetary movements I decided to sit for a bit. Within a few minutes of it, a scene came where Angeline Jolie mentions to the protagonist that he must give her a missing triangle piece so that she could solve the puzzle, else they would have to wait for 5000 years for the same planetary alignment and things to repeat. For me, that was my sign of the truth. The movie I am talking about is Tomb Raiders, it released in early 2000’s, is pure fiction, they could have said any number of years. However, I end up watching it in April 2013 and immediately after having asked the question.
Moreover, I would not have understood what she was talking about had I not watched the video on Pyramids which you had linked.
So this entire write up is just to thank you ever so much for being one of the agents of profound change in my life. Wishing you the best today and always!
Also a request, like I mentioned the pure gyan has truly helped me however being new to reading about such concepts and applying them in my life, find it hard to understand ‘Avyakt Murlis’ as is, I enjoy your explanations to the ‘Avyakt Murlis’ as that’s what this soul currently understands. I believe a new season of Avyakt Murlis would begin. If it is possible would you please do the churnings for those ‘Avyakt Murlis’ maybe as a separate blog? I understand the change in direction that the blog has taken and truly respect your decision and whatever you may take.
Also, if you would feel appropriate to share what is the story behind choosing the name ‘Avyakt7’. Many thanks.”
I am very grateful to you as it is good to hear such feedback once in a while.. 🙂
I thank you for letting me post your personal note.
As we can see there is a “plan,” in life. Some may call it, “Godly plan,” others “Divine plan,” yet others, “Drama,” “Tao,” or simply life. Choose the name you like, but please do not become trapped in it. Otherwise that will become another concept to defend and to make divisions among human beings.
I had a similar beginning than you. Many things started to “synchronize,” as far as getting answers to questions. For me the truth was everything.
Just like yourself, the knowledge that I learned through the Brahma Kumaris was understood by me in a way that it is not typical.
The real practical aspect of this knowledge nevertheless, is appreciated when we recognize the importance of “NOW.” When we come to appreciate life as it is and people for what they are. When we behave and deeply understand that things are as they have to be…and all is “good.” This understanding will bring the need to change “NOW.”
If I am not happy… the time to be happy is “NOW,” not tomorrow in the Golden age, but “NOW.”
Interestingly enough this is the teaching of philosophies and religions where God is not considered as a “pivotal” view such as Buddhism, Zen and Taoism. All of them go into the “NOW,” and offer different tools to help us change our current state of consciousness. Because self transformation is not about worshiping the messenger, but to understand the message of the need of time… and Be it! (Not do it 🙂 ) that is how we can see that every religious path, has something to teach us and our own spiritual path will move us into something else when the teaching has been learned. Nothing is static. Everything moves like a leaf moving on top of the river of destiny, and everyone has different timing to grow.
We just need to respect that.
The role of avyakt7 is about the common good. Avyakt7 is not interested in defending a religion or a philosophy, neither interested in debating about ideas or opinions anymore. Avyakt7 is interested in the common benefit, the common good. That is all.
The name avyakt7 came to me early in my path when I started with the Brahma Kumaris. I cannot tell you what it means, other than it felt “alright” to use it as a “pen” name in the internet.
As you requested, this role may comment on avyakt murlis of the season as part of sharing spiritual knowledge to all, but this role will not be caught up in a “box” of “duties,” for the goal is for you, dear reader; to be able to understand spiritual teachings out of your own experience. Please do not become dependent on anything, even on this blog.
Finally, all of this is happening with a purpose which is beyond my thoughts. Divine help has been there in my spiritual upbringing. I am very thankful of that; but at the same time there is the sense of responsibility towards myself which means, the world… the common good.
Avyakt7 will not forget that; and readers like you only remind me of that.
Dear Avyakt7 loving greetings As I have mentioned many times ;your blog , wisdom and experiences are greatly appreciated and I found it invaluable .I’m happy to hear that , you are keeping the blog open . I always respected you for having the courage to be different and share your differences . Dear Brother you are valued and thanks for your honesty . Kindest gratitude
Thank you for your kindest words.
I understand that you met my “double sister” in Madhuban. We are a “team.” 🙂
Avyakt7 is just a mirror. What you see in others is what you are. You are just recognizing those items within you, through others. The only difference is in the expression. Avyakt7 writes in a blog. Writing is his expression. That is all.
Life teaches us not to teach to those who know, but merely allow them to emerge what they already know.
All the best to you!
“आजकी मुरली मुझे बहुत अच्छी लगी| थ्री स्टार्सकी बाते मुझे जीवनभर अपने आगे के रास्ते के लिए यूज़फुल रहेगी| धन्यवाद|”
I would appreciate if you find someone who can translate that in English. It will not be me… 🙂 and I will just move on next time, just in case someone has the same idea of sending stuff in Hindi to me…
According to Google, here is the translation:
“Murali found it very Ajki | Starski Three things your way forward for me, life will Ughful | Thanks |”
Thanks to you as well…. 🙂
Dear brother Om Shanti, I am in gyan for the last 4 years but a number of questions were in my mind which nobody was answering. Yesterday incidently I came to know about your site. I am of the firm beleif that BABA has helped me and he is himself answering me through this blog. You are very intelligent. Today by reading the topics I remained happy throughout the day. However, now a question is in my mind which i am asking throuh Questions. Thanks & OM SHANTI KEEP DOING THIS GREAT JOB.
Thank you for your kind words. I am glad to know that you are finding benefit by reading the posts of this site. Avyakt7 is just a role that I have to “put up with.” 🙂 Today called ” very intelligent,” tomorrow a “buddhu.” 🙂
Believe me, this role is used to hear both terms frequently. Thus, “nothing new.” 🙂
As I mentioned before, I feel fortunate to be part of an “unofficial team” here of souls who contribute with their experiences and wisdom.
Hope you keep enjoying this site!
I have been following your refreshing thoughts on gyan for quite a while, and I just wanted to thank you for giving me an extra opportunity to explore and feel gyan in my life.
It is a great fortune to have such a wonderful family, and I am very appreciative of your findings and of all the material you have shared in the blog.
Thank you very much.
Thank you very much, dear soul. It is truly “refreshing” to hear that souls are taking benefit of this blog. We shall see what the future holds, but in the meantime; we shall enjoy the beauty of diversity in the wonderful setting of being a part of the BK family of the world.
Thank you for your kind words.
Please take a look at Gyan under different perspectives, under different views. The answers are there, but if we are stuck reciting the same “ol’ thing,” we will never give our intellects the ability to extract the “butter” out of Gyan. This is a good time for changes. Gyan is universal and it should apply to all human beings in this Drama with respect and benefit for all. The depth of Gyan is something that science is not capable to understand yet, but it is getting there little by little (Theories of cyclic view of time, quantum mechanics concepts and the study of ancient cultures) as “time goes by.”
I am glad to know that you feel enthusiastic about Gyan again. With that faith, please strengthen your connection with the Supreme and explore the self, which is the ultimate source of knowledge.
Thank you for those blessings. I truly feel those blessings coming my way and they are helping me a lot. 🙂
My blessings go to you as well, whoever you are…
I thank all the members of the divine family which are in one way or another participating here with your questions and comments. I would like to express my heart felt “thank you,” for those who are non-BK souls as well and who have supported with your “likes” some of the articles here.
The world is a diverse family. When we respect that diversity and acknowledge everyone’s uniqueness and unique role, then we can move forward as a group and make something beautiful out of this great opportunity to live, that is to experience and express.
