Brahma Kumaris Murli English 21 November 2016
21/11/16 Morning Murli Om Shanti BapDada Madhuban
Sweet children, the influence of wrong company causes a lot of damage. Therefore, continue to be very careful of the company you keep. The influence of wrong company is very bad.
What are the three types of childhood? Which childhood should you never forget?
One is the childhood you have when you take birth to your physical parents, the second childhood is when you become a disciple of a guru and the third childhood is when you leave your physical parents and belong to the spiritual Parent. Spiritual childhood means to be an adopted child of God. To become a child of God means to die alive. Never forget this spiritual childhood. If you do forget it, you will have to cry a great deal. To cry means to be hurt by Maya.
Do not forget the days of your childhood.
You sweetest, spiritual children understood the meaning of this song. There are three types of childhood. One is the worldly childhood. The second is the childhood of the path of isolation; that is when they leave their homes and families, die alive and belong to a guru or a sannyasi. He is not their father; they simply belong to a guru and live with him. They too die alive, belong to a guru and go away to a forest. The third is this wonderful birth of dying alive. You leave one set of parents and belong to another set of Parents. That One is the spiritual Mother and Father. This is your birth of dying alive, the spiritual birth in God’s lap. The spiritual Father is now talking to you. All others are physical fathers whereas that One is the spiritual Father. This is why it is sung: After dying alive and belonging to the Father, don’t forget this childhood. Shiv Baba is God, the Highest on High. When people debate the Gita, first of all ask them: Who is God, the Highest on High? They say, “Salutations to the deity Brahma, salutations to the deity Vishnu”, and then they say, “Salutations to the Supreme Soul, Shiva.” He is the Father of those of all religions. First of all, explain that the highest-on-high Father is only One. No one would say that Brahma or Vishnu is God, the Father. First of all, make sure that everyone really does accept that God, the Father, is One and that He is incorporeal. He is also called the Creator and the Purifier. You would surely receive an inheritance from the Father. Just think about this: Who received the inheritance from the unlimited Father? The Father is the Creator of the new world. His name is Shiva. They say, “Salutations to the Supreme Soul Shiva”, and they also celebrate His birthday. He alone is the Purifier, the Creator and the knowledge-full One. Then the notion of omnipresence will no longer remain. His praise is based on His acts. Praise is sung of those who did something in the past. The Father is the Highest on High. He is also called the Liberator, the Merciful One, the Remover of Sorrow and Bestower of Happiness and also the Guide. When you go to a new place, you take a guide with you. When people come here from abroad, a local guide is appointed to show them everything. There are guides who take people on pilgrimages.
The Father is called the Guide and so He must definitely have guided everyone but, because omnipresence was mentioned, that aspect has become meaningless. First of all, explain that the Father of all is One. Out of all the scriptures, the Gita is the main jewel; it is sung by God. If you prove that to be so, then all its children, the other scriptures, will be proved to be false. You should first of all relate the essence of the true Gita. God Shiva speaks. What are the divine activities of Shiv Baba? He simply says: I take the support of this body and show you the path to become pure from impure. I come to teach you children Raja Yoga and so what is the need for divine activities in that? This one is old and mature. I simply come and teach you children. I teach you Raja Yoga in order to purify the impure. You will go and rule in the golden age. You receive that inheritance, whereas all the rest of the souls will be in the land of liberation, the incorporeal world. This is something very easy to understand. There was the kingdom of deities in Bharat. There was just one religion. There are now so many human beings in the iron age. There, there will be very few. The Supreme Father, the Supreme Soul, comes to establish one religion and to destroy all the innumerable religions. All the rest will go to the land of peace. No impure soul can reside there. His name is the Purifier, the Bestower of Salvation for All. This is the old world, the iron age. Satyug is called the golden age. Those who are worshippers of the deities will easily understand everything. Those who are worthy of worship then become worshippers. So, first of all, give the Father’s introduction. Tell them: Don’t forget that you are His children. If you forget, you will have to cry and you will be hurt by Maya in one way or another. Become soul conscious! All souls have to return home to the Father. All of these human beings will die, so who will weep for whom? People in Bharat weep the most. For the first 12 months (when someone dies), they weep a great deal and even beat their chests. These are the systems and customs of the land of death. You are now being taught the systems and customs of the land of immortality.
You now have disinterest in the old world. The Father says: Constantly remember Me alone! All of this is going to be destroyed. We are now to go back home for the play is coming to an end. All are actors in the play and so to whom would you have attachment? You understand that each one has to go and play another part. What need is there to cry? Each one’s part is fixed. Just as the Father is the Ocean of Knowledge, the Ocean of Bliss and the Ocean of Love, so, follow the Father and become the same too. Rivers emerge from an ocean. All are numberwise. Some shower knowledge very well and make many others equal to themselves. They become sticks for the blind. The Father needs many helpers. He says: Become sticks for the blind and show everyone the path! It isn’t that just one teacher has to become a stick for the blind; you all have to become that. You have each received a third eye of knowledge. This is called the story of receiving the third eye of knowledge. The divine eye refers to the soul. People don’t understand anything; they have completely degraded intellects. The people of Bharat do not know who established their religion. The birth of the Father takes place here. People celebrate the birthday of Shiva. So, how could He be omnipresent? No one in the world knows the Father or creation. All the rishis and munis have been saying: “Neti, neti. (Neither this not that). They have made the one big mistake of saying that God is omnipresent. You can prove that He is the Father of all, the Purifier and the Liberator. He is taking you from the old world to the new world. There is no question of sorrow there. Just look what they have written in the scriptures! They even ask about Lakshmi and Narayan: How can they have children there without vice? Oh, but that is said be a world full of all virtues, sixteen celestial degrees full, completely viceless. That is the viceless world, whereas this is the vicious world, so how can you ask whether there will be vices there too? Until you first know the Father, you cannot understand anything. They have made the great mistake of omnipresence. Only when that mistake is rectified can they know the Father.
They should have the faith: Baba, I now belong to You once again in order to claim my fortune of the kingdom from You. Look what they have written in the scriptures! They show Lakshmi and Narayan in the golden age but their childhood as Radhe and Krishna in the copper age. However, Krishna was the prince of heaven. Krishna’s features change birth after birth. No one can have the same features again. It isn’t that Krishna could exist in the copper age with those same features again; that is impossible. You know that you are originally the residents of that place (the incorporeal world). That is our sweet silence home for which people perform devotion. They say: We want peace! Souls have received organs to play their parts, so how can they remain in peace? They study hatha yoga and go into caves for peace. If someone were to sit in a cave for a month, does it mean that that is the land of peace? You know that we will now go to the land of peace and then go to the land of happiness to play our parts. Those people say that this is heaven for those who are happy and hell for those who are unhappy. You know that heaven is the new world and that hell is the old world. God speaks: Performing devotion, having sacrificial fires, making donations etc. all belong to the path of devotion and there is no meaning to that. The golden and silver ages are called the day of Brahma. The day of Brahma is the day of you Brahmins and then your night begins. You first go to the golden age and you then go around the cycle. You become Brahmins, deities, warriors, merchants and shudras. You say “God Shiva speaks” whereas they say “God Krishna speaks”. There is a vast difference. This one takes the full 84 births and the whole sun-dynasty community takes rebirth with him and they are now claiming their fortune of the kingdom at the end. You children who understand this enjoy it. New ones would not enjoy it. We are not defaming anyone. The Father is giving you such an easy explanation. Here, you are in Baba’s company and so are able to understand well. When you go into outside company, there’s no telling what your state may become. The influence of wrong company is very bad. Such things do not happen in heaven. The very name is heaven, Vaikunth, the land of happiness. They have written in the scriptures that devils also existed there. You now know that you were the masters of the world. There is no partition of land or sky there. Now there are so many partitions.
They continue to make their own boundaries. There is so much fighting in the world. Whenever anyone comes, first of all, explain to him who the Father is and who the One called God is. Brahma, Vishnu and Shankar are deities. There can only be one God, not ten. Krishna cannot be God. How could God teach violence? God speaks: “Lust is the greatest enemy.” Therefore, make a promise to conquer it. Have a rakhi tied for this. That refers to the present time. Whatever happened in the past on the path of devotion will happen again. People worship Mahalakshmi at Deepmala. No one knows that Lakshmi and Narayan are combined. From where would Lakshmi receive wealth? It is men who earn an income and yet the name of Lakshmi is remembered. Lakshmi is remembered first and then Narayan. They consider Mahalakshmi to be someone different and have shown her with four arms: two for the male and two for the female. However, they don’t know these things. You now know the details. You heard the song: Don’t forget the days of your childhood. The soul says: “Baba, I have now remembered.” Wake up early in the morning and talk to the Father. It is good to remember the Father at amrit vela. Go and sit in solitude in the evening. Continue to follow this discipline even if you are living together as a couple. What does Shiv Baba say through the body of Brahma? When we are worthy of worship we never remember Baba. We remember the Father when we become worshippers. Talk to yourself in this way so that anyone who hears it would be amazed. We were sitting on the pyre of lust for half the cycle and burning to death. We were in the graveyard. We now have to sit on the pyre of knowledge and go to heaven. This is the old world. The people of Bharat think that this is heaven. Oh! but heaven exists in the golden age. There used to be the kingdom of deities in heaven. Here, there is the pomp of Maya. Baba now says: Don’t be influenced by bad company and die! Otherwise, there will be great repentance. When the results of the examinations are announced, everyone becomes aware of the results. Previously, daughters used to go into trance and say what each one would become: whether a queen or a maid. Baba then put a stop to that. At the end, everything will be known about how much of the Father’s service you did and how many you made equal to yourself.
You will remember everything and also have visions. Dharamraj cannot punish you without giving you a vision. It has been explained to you children repeatedly: Constantly remember Me alone! The Father comes and plants the sapling of the very sweet tree. That Government plants saplings of trees and they celebrate that festival. Here, a sapling of the new world is being planted. So, don’t forget such a Father! Engage yourself in the Father’s service or else you will have to repent a great deal at the end. If you don’t claim your inheritance now, that will be the account for every cycle. Therefore, make full effort. 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. The Father is the Ocean of Knowledge, Bliss and Love, so become equal to the Father and do the service of making others equal to yourself. Give everyone a third eye of knowledge.
2. Never keep such company that you have to repent. The influence of company is very bad and you therefore have to look after yourself. Make full effort to claim your inheritance from the Father.
May you be an easy and natural yogi who remains free from any bondage of karma while performing actions.
None of the attractions of the corporeal world can attract any mahavir children. They can make themselves detached and loving to the Father in a second. Those who become bodiless, soul conscious, free from bondage and experience a yog-yukt stage as soon as they receive a direction are easy, natural yogis, constant yogis, karma yogis and elevated yogis. They are able to stabilise their thoughts and breath in remembrance of the one Father, the Lord of Life, for as long as they want and whenever they want.
To remain seated on the elevated seat of a constant and stable stage is the sign of a tapaswi soul.
