Brahma Kumaris Murli English 30 January 2017
30/01/17 Morning Murli Om Shanti BapDada Madhuban
Sweet children, you must not have any type of greed. Don’t ask anyone for anything because you are bestowers, children of the Bestower.
You are Godly students and so what is your aim and what is not your aim?
Your aim is to imbibe the knowledge that you receive from the Father and to pass with honours. However, it is not your aim to have desires and think, “I want this” or “I want that”. Don’t have any exchange with human beings and thereby create further karmic accounts. Stay in remembrance of the Father and make effort to become karmateet.
Do not forget the days of your childhood!
You children know that this is a relationship between the Supreme Father and the children. The spiritual Father is sitting here and the children are also sitting here. When sannyasis go somewhere from their ashrams, it would be said that such-and-such a sannyasi is a resident of such-and-such a place and that he relates the Gita and scriptures etc. That is not anything new. Because it is said that God is omnipresent, all knowledge comes to an end. That One is the spiritual Father whom all spirits remember. It is the spirit that says: O Supreme Father, Supreme Soul. When someone has sorrow, he wouldn’t say anything to his physical father; he would remember the unlimited Father. Sannyasis would remember the brahm element; they are the ones who have knowledge of the brahm element. They don’t remember the Father at all. They say, “Shivohum, I, the soul, am the Supreme Soul.” The brahm element is a place of residence. These things are completely new. This knowledge disappears. My knowledge is not in those scriptures. Because My knowledge is not in the scriptures, when you relate it to others, they say that this is something new. It doesn’t enter their intellects that the incorporeal Supreme Soul is giving knowledge. They believe that Krishna spoke the knowledge and so they have become confused. Baba proves everything, one by one, to you. All of you remember God on the path of devotion. Devotees are all devotees, but there has to be one God. By considering God to be in everyone, they began to worship everyone. First of all, there is unadulterated worship of Shiva, but they don’t have the knowledge of what He did before He went away. They don’t know when He came. However, that is satopradhan devotion. The One from whom happiness is received is worshipped. There was also plenty of happiness in the kingdom of Lakshmi and Narayan. They were the deities of heaven.
Although Lakshmi and Narayan are believed to be the first empress and emperor of the golden age, no one knows the duration of the golden age. The Father explains everything to you children. Only you children become Brahmins. This is the new creation. You can explain to everyone that the Supreme Father, the Supreme Soul, is creating the new world through Brahma, the Father of People. Everyone understands this. Why else would he be called the Father of People? Only you children know these things; no one else knows them. They’re unable to understand these new things. When they become firm after hearing these things, they then realise how much darkness they were in. They neither knew God nor the deities. Devotion is performed of those who existed in the past. Then, ask them: What is your relationship with the Supreme Father, the Supreme Soul, whose birthday you celebrate? What did He do when He came? They won’t be able to tell you anything. They simply say of Krishna that he stole butter, that he did this and that and gave knowledge. There is so much confusion! Only the one God is the Bestower. Krishna wouldn’t be called the Bestower. They are all confused! All of this is fixed in the drama. The Father explains so clearly. Even a few things in a nutshell don’t sit in the intellects of human beings. If you were to sit and write the story of the 84 births of each one, you couldn’t tell how long it would be. The Father says: Put aside all of those things and constantly remember Me alone. Everything is explained and expanded on a little so that people’s doubts are removed. However, it is such a small matter: Remember Me! It is just like a mantra that is given to remember God. However, they wouldn’t say, “By remembering God your sins will be absolved and you will go to God.” Only the Father explains that your sins are not absolved by bathing in the Ganges.
At this time, the burden of sin on each one is very great. There are very few pure actions, but there are many sinful actions for many births. You have knowledge and you stay in yoga so much but, in spite of that, there are so many sins that you are unable to get rid of them. When you become karmateet, you will receive a new birth in the new world. If any sins are still left, rebirth will have to be taken in the old world. You children are receiving very good knowledge. The Father says: If you don’t understand anything, just remember the Father. Even by just doing this much, you can receive the sovereignty of heaven in a second. There is the story of Khuda-Dost (God, the Friend). God gave someone the kingdom for a day. You now know that Baba is the Mother, the Father, the Friend, the Brother etc., and so God is the Friend, is He not? The stories of Allah-Avaldin (God, the One who establishes the first religion), of Khuda Dost (God, the Friend) are all of this time. Baba gives you the sovereignty of heaven in a second. When daughters used to go into trance, they would become princes and princesses. Then they would relate all the news of that place. You now know the Father. Everyone speaks of Heavenly God, the Father, and so He would definitely only create the new world of heaven. Bharat alone was the golden age. There were no other religions at that time. Christians too say that 3000 years before Christ Bharat was heaven where Lakshmi and Narayan used to rule the kingdom. This is why it is asked where they received their inheritance from. What connection do the people of Bharat have with them? They were the masters of heaven in the beginning. It is now hell and so where did they go? You do believe in birth and death, do you not? It is only when a soul enters the cycle of birth and death that he takes 84 births.
How else would he take them? There are innumerable opinions in the world. Some believe in rebirth whereas others don’t. You should ask: What is your relationship with Shiva, the Supreme Father, the Supreme Soul? Who are Brahma, Vishnu and Shankar? Where do they reside? You would reply: They reside in the subtle region. No one else can tell you this. It is so easy for you! Mothers don’t have any concerns about jobs etc.; they simply stay at home. They don’t have any complications of employment; they just have to claim their inheritance from the Father. Men have many concerns. Baba tells you: You claim your status and become the masters of the world. Wealthy people have so many worries. There is a lot of bribery in the world. You don’t need to take bribes. That is the work of businessmen. You are free from all of that. Nevertheless, Maya is such that she catches hold of you by your plait, and this is why there is some greed or attachment and you then keep asking your students for something. Baba says: Don’t ask anyone for anything. You are children of the Bestower, are you not? You have to give and not ask for anything. You can take whatever you want from Shiv Baba. If you take something from anyone else, you will continue to remember that person. If you take everything from Shiv Baba, you will repeatedly remember Shiv Baba. Shiv Baba says: Your account of give and take is with Me. This Brahma is just the agent in between. I am the One who gives. Stay in connection with Me through Brahma. If you take anything from others, you will remember those people and become adulterated. Take things from Shiv Baba’s treasure-store and don’t ask anyone else for anything. Otherwise, the one who is giving also incurs a loss because that person did not give to Shiv Baba’s treasure-store. Everything should be given to Shiv Baba’s treasure-store. You have had a relationship of give and take with human beings for a long time. Your connection is now directly with Shiv Baba.
However, Baba knows that some children have an evil spirit of greed in them. Many children say that they haven’t seen Shiv Baba. Oh! but can you see yourself? Have you had a vision of yourself, a soul, that you are asking to have a vision of Shiv Baba? You know that you, a soul, reside in the centre of the forehead. Shiv Baba would also be in the centre of the forehead. You know that a soul sheds a body and takes another. Sometimes, it is possible to have a vision of a soul. A soul is a star. Visions would be had through divine vision. OK, so you worshipped Krishna and you had a vision of him, but what was the benefit of that? Even if you did have a vision of God, what would be the benefit of that? You still have to study anyway. When someone on the path of devotion has a vision, there is a lot of praise about that, but they don’t receive anything. Shiv Baba is the Ocean of Knowledge. Brahma is not called the Ocean of Knowledge, is He? Brahma also receives knowledge from that One. Nowadays, they place a Shivalingam in front of everyone, but they don’t understand anything. They perform worship, but they can’t tell you anyone’s biography. They can’t understand these jewels of knowledge. Whilst you are receiving jewels of knowledge, Maya turns some of you into monkeys. You say: I don’t want jewels of knowledge. Baba explains: You will still go to Shivalaya (the Temple of Shiva) but with the status of a subject. You should make effort to claim a high status. The Father says: I have come to give you the sovereignty of heaven. Just make effort and make others the same as you. You can also ask the priests of the temples: Who are they? There is a saying: Someone came to borrow a piece of burning coal and ended up as the master of the kitchen (head cook). All of this enters the intellects of some priests very well.
We too were worshippers and have now become worthy of worship. You can explain what effort Lakshmi and Narayan made to become worthy of worship. Baba says: Go and explain at places where My devotees are. Devotees would be in the temples of Shiva. Go to the Lakshmi and Narayan temples and the Jagadamba Temple and explain to the priests there, so that they can then explain to others. If the priests were to sit and tell everyone Jagadamba’s occupation, everyone would be very happy. Tell them: You have to understand all of these things. If you were to sit and tell someone the biographies of the deities, you would receive a lot of money. Only those who are soul conscious are able to say this. Those who are body conscious constantly have desires throughout the day: “I want this, I want that,” etc. They have that greed. You students should have greed for knowledge so that you can then pass with honours. This is the aim of your study. Understand the secrets of the drama. The drama is not so long, but they have given it a long duration in the scriptures. Therefore, all this should enter your intellects. There is a lot of service to do and someone just has to do it. You wouldn’t ask the Father for blessings. Some ask: God, give us a son so that our clan can grow! Oh! But the Father is making His clan grow! At this time, the deity clan is growing. God’s clan is now growing. You too are the children of God. Therefore, the Father explains: Renounce all of those desires and remember the one Father. All bondages etc. are the accounts of karma. Look how many bondages Baba has! He has to think of so many children. There are so many complications. They defame him so much. It is easy to do disservice, but very difficult to do service.
When someone becomes spoilt, he spoils 10 or 20 others. Five or eight emerge with great difficulty. Some continue to go to centres and also continue to make their faces dirty. Such monkey intellects spoil the atmosphere. Why do you allow such ones to sit there? Once someone has dirtied his face, the effect of that lasts for a long time. Everything is known from one’s register. They would come for four or five years and then stop coming. Baba explains: You won’t be able to claim a royal status by doing that. There is the story of the Court of Indra. Someone was turned to stone. You too will become those with stone intellects and be unable to become those with divine intellects. In spite of that, you still don’t make effort. This too is fixed in the drama. Everyone is needed in a kingdom, numberwise. maids, servants and cremators etc. are all needed. 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. Renounce all worldly desires and become a helper in making God’s clan grow. Don’t do anything to cause disservice.
2. Keep a connection of give and take with only the one Father, not with any bodily being.
May you have faith in the intellect and be a destroyer of obstacles and remain constantly unshakeable by understanding significance of the knowledge.
When you remain stable in the stage of a destroyer of obstacles, no matter how big an obstacle is, you will experience it to be a game. By considering it to be a game you will not be afraid but will happily become victorious and remain double light. With the awareness of the knowledge of the drama, every obstacle will be experienced to be nothing new. It will not feel like it is something new, but something very old. Achalghar (Home of stability) is the memorial of the children whose intellects had faith of being victorious many times and who understood the significance of the knowledge.
When you have the power of determination with you, success will become a garland around your neck.
