Brahma Kumaris Murli English 3 August 2016
03/08/16 Morning Murli Om Shanti BapDada Madhuban
Sweet children, stop thinking about others and benefit yourself. Become like gold and show the path to others.
What are the main signs of those who constantly make effort to become bodiless?
They do not control their physical senses by force, for their physical senses automatically become cool. They have a natural awareness that we souls are brothers. They continue to renounce body consciousness and thereby finish any intoxication of name or form. They don't remember other beings.
You are the Ocean of Love, we thirst for one drop.
That One is not just the Ocean of Love, He is also the Ocean of Knowledge. There is knowledge and ignorance. Knowledge is the day and ignorance is the night. The word “knowledge” is good whereas the word “ignorance” is bad. For half the cycle there is the reward of knowledge and for half the cycle there is the reward of ignorance. The reward of ignorance is sorrow and the reward of knowledge is happiness. These matters are very easy to understand. There is the day of knowledge and the night of ignorance. No one knows what knowledge is or what ignorance is. These are matters of the unlimited. You explain to everyone what knowledge is and what devotion is. You become worthy of worship through knowledge. When you are becoming worthy of worship, you come to know about the paraphernalia of worship. You know that all the temples etc. are memorials. You know what their life stories are. Those who worship do not know the life stories of the ones they worship. Worshipping is called devotion. God has to meet His devotees in order to give them the fruit of their devotion. God comes and makes those who are worshippers into those who are worthy of worship. You are worthy of worship in the golden age and worshippers in the iron age.
You children know what you are today and what you will become tomorrow. Destruction will definitely take place. It can take place at any time; preparations are being made. It is remembered that there are many natural calamities. You should write: Civil wars and natural calamities cannot be called Godly calamities; they are fixed in the drama. There will also be natural calamities. They will help in destruction. There will also be torrential rainfall and famine etc. There will be earthquakes too. Destruction will take place through all of those things. You children know that all of that will definitely happen. How else would there be so few human beings in the golden age? Destruction will definitely take place all at once. You children understand very well that all of these dirty clothes will be washed. This is huge unlimited machinery. It is said that God washes the dirty clothes. It is not a question of physical clothes, but it refers to bodies. Souls have to be washed with the power of yoga. At this time, the five vices are tamopradhan and so the bodies that have been created are also like that. The Purifier Father comes and purifies you. Everyone else will be destroyed. You know how you become pure. You are shown a very easy path. Human beings don't understand anything.
You should go and explain to them wherever they hold a sacrificial fire on the path of devotion: You can become deities by understanding the biography of those whom you worship. Come and understand how they attained liberation-in-life, and you too can then attain the same. When you explain their life stories in the temples, they will be able to understand very clearly. You are also listening to their life stories from the Father. You children have received so much understanding! No one knows the life story of the Supreme Father, the Supreme Soul. By saying that He is omnipresent, there cannot be a life story. You children now know the life story of the Supreme Father, the Supreme Soul, that is, you know the beginning, the middle and the end. This time, when the Father comes and purifies the impure, is called the beginning. Then there is the part of devotion in the middle. The Father says: I come at this time and carry out establishment; I inspire it to be carried out. I am Karankaravanhar (One who acts Himself and also acts through others). Giving inspiration is not called doing it yourself. Baba comes and carries it out through the physical organs of this one. There is no question of inspiration in this. Karankaravanhar would definitely come in person and work through this one. Nothing is achieved through inspiration.
A soul cannot do anything without a body. Many people say that God does everything through inspiration. “Baba, inspire my husband and put his intellect right!” The Father says: There is no question of inspiration in this. Otherwise, why is the birthday of Shiva celebrated? If everything were accomplished through inspiration, why would He come? Firstly, they don't know who God is. They simply say that everything happens through God's inspiration. How can the incorporeal One do anything through inspiration? He is Karankaravanhar. He comes and shows us the path. He speaks the murli through physical organs. How could He play the murli unless He took the support of physical organs? He is the Ocean of Knowledge. Therefore, He needs a mouth in order to speak knowledge. You children now know the beginning, the middle and the end of the whole world. You have received the full knowledge. People believe that, without knowledge, there can’t be salvation. Who can give knowledge? Look at the difference between the path of knowledge and the path of ignorance! They also speak of science (vigyan). Ignorance is darkness. However, we can say that knowledge (gyan) and science (vigyan) are liberation and liberation-in-life. You are now receiving the knowledge to become pure. You are becoming spinners of the discus of self-realisation.
Anyone who hears this would be amazed. It is said that since souls receive knowledge, souls will definitely carry those sanskars. Since you change from humans into deities, that knowledge should remain. However, the Father explains that this effort is for receiving a reward. Once you have received the reward, what need would there be for knowledge? The golden age is the reward for you children. You are amazed when you hear these things. Why has this knowledge not existed from time immemorial? The Father says: This knowledge disappears. Once it is the day, there is no ignorance that there would be a need for knowledge. These matters have to be understood and explained. No one can understand instantly. Shiv Baba only comes in Bharat and He brings a gift for you children in order to give you the fruit of your devotion. After devotion, there is salvation. This destruction will definitely take place. There are signs of this. You continue to hear about how there was just a spark and how a whole building completely burnt down within a couple of hours. This is nothing new! Destruction definitely has to take place. In the golden age there are only a few elevated human beings. It takes so much effort to become elevated. Maya catches hold of you by the nose.
Those who fall like this are very badly hurt. It takes time. The thing that causes the most damage is the vice of lust. This is why it is said that lust is the greatest enemy. It is this that makes you impure. There is quarrelling because of vice. If they don’t leave you alone but force you to indulge in vice, you should definitely say: It would be better to wash dishes than this. I shall sweep and mop the floor, but at least I shall remain pure. A lot of courage is needed for this. When someone seeks refuge with the Father, Maya also begins to battle. The illness of the five vices erupts even more. First of all, have firm faith in the intellect. You have died alive. The anchor has been raised from here. You have left the iron-aged, vicious shore. “We are now going on a pilgrimage. We are becoming bodiless and returning home.” The soul has the knowledge: “We will shed these bodies and take others. While living at home with the family, we remain as pure as a lotus and also stay on the pilgrimage.” Keep it in your intellects that this is a graveyard. We are going to the land of happiness. Baba is showing you ways by which He can give you an inheritance. We stay in yoga in order to become pure. Your sins will only be absolved through remembrance. Then you souls will shed your bodies.
This pilgrimage is so wonderful! Simply remember the Father and your kingdom. You are unable to remember something so simple! Simply remember Alpha, that’s all! However, Maya doesn't allow you to remember even this much. It requires effort. You souls have received the knowledge that our Baba has come. Souls are studying. A soul takes birth through a body. Souls are brothers. When you become body conscious, there are so many relations. Here, you are brothers and sisters. You are brothers and also brothers and sisters. This is the family path. Both need an inheritance. It is the soul that makes effort. The only effort is to consider yourself to be a soul. There shouldn't be any body consciousness. If there is no body, how can you indulge in vice? I am a soul and I have to go to the Father. The consciousness of the body must not remain. The more yogi you become, the quieter your physical senses will become. When you become body conscious, your physical senses cause mischief. The soul knows that he is attaining something and will continue to be detached from the body. Then the physical senses will also become peaceful. Sannyasis control their physical senses with drugs. That is hatha yoga. You have to do everything with yoga. Can you not control your senses with the power of yoga? The more soul conscious you become, the more peaceful your senses will become. You have to make a lot of effort. The attainment is also great.
The Father says: You become the masters of the world with the power of yoga. It is because you conquer the physical senses that the yoga of Bharat is very well known. You change from humans into deities, from impure to pure. Subjects are also residents of heaven. You become residents of heaven with the power of yoga, you cannot become that with physical power. There isn't a lot of effort required. For the kumaris, it is as though there is no effort; they are free. Once you have indulged in vice, there are many complications. It is good to remain a kumari. Otherwise, you receive the name “adhar-kumari” (half-kumari). Why should you become a couple? In that, too, there is the intoxication of name and form. That too is foolishness. After becoming a couple, a lot of courage is required to remain pure. There has to be the total enlightenment of knowledge. Many have courage, but once there is the slightest effect of a fire, everything is over. This is why Baba says: It is still good to be a kumari. Why should there even be a thought of becoming an adhar-kumari? The name of the kumaris is glorified. They are celibate from birth. It is good to remain celibate. There is power in that. Then, no one else will be remembered. If you have courage, you can demonstrate that.
However, it does require effort. There are two of you. When you are a kumari you are alone. When there are two of you, there is duality. As far as possible, it is good to remain a kumari. A kumari can even go out on service. Once you are tied in bondage, the bondages will increase. Why should you set a trap in which your intellect becomes trapped? It is not good to become trapped in such a trap. It is very good for the kumaris. Kumaris have glorified Baba's name. The name Kanhaiya (Krishna of the kumaris) is remembered. It is very good to remain a kumari. It is very easy for them. A student life is a pure life. The intellect also remains fresh. Kumars have to become like Bhishampitamai. You became this in the previous cycle and this is why there is the memorial in the Dilwara Temple. The Father gives you children the order: Remember Me! Renounce everything else and benefit yourself! Only in remembering the Father is there benefit. When you children make mistakes, you fall. Don’t think about others, just benefit yourself. Don’t think about anything else at all! Become like gold and also show this path to others. There is only one way to become satopradhan. You cannot go to the land of liberation without becoming pure. There is just the one way and then your final thoughts will lead you to your destination. Renounce gossiping. Otherwise, you only cause yourself a loss. The Father is not cursing you, but when you do not follow shrimat, you curse yourself. Achcha.
To the sweetest, beloved, long-lost and now-found children, love, remembrance and good morning from the Mother, the Father, BapDada. The spiritual Father says namaste to the spiritual children.
Essence for Dharna:
1. Have a faithful intellect and raise your anchor from this old world while alive. Follow every one of the Father’s orders and benefit yourself.
2. Stop thinking about others and make your intellect pure, like gold. Don't waste your time gossiping. Make your physical senses cool and peaceful with the power of yoga.
May you be crowned and seated on the throne and make all your physical organs work under your orders with the awareness of your intoxication and your goal.
At the confluence age all the children receive from BapDada a crown and a throne. You have the crown of purity and also the crown of responsibility and you also have the immortal throne and the heart-throne. When you have a double crown and throne, you automatically remember your intoxication and your goal. The physical organs would then say, “Yes my lord.” None of the workers would accept orders from those who take off their crown and leave their throne.
Weak thoughts make you full of questions instead of making you happy.
