Today Murli Brahma Kumaris: 2 May 2020
|Essence:||Sweet children, you are now at the confluence age and you have to break your connections with the old world because it is now going to be destroyed.|
|Question:||What speciality of the confluence age is unique in the whole of the cycle?|
|Answer:||The speciality of the confluence age is: You study here and receive the reward of that in the future. Throughout the whole cycle, there is no type of study where you receive the reward of it in your next birth. You children are now studying in the land of death for the land of immortality. No one else studies for their next birth.|
|Song:||The Resident of the faraway land has come to the foreign land.|
Om shanti. Who is the Resident of the faraway land? No one knows this. Does He not have His own land that He has to come to a foreign land? He doesn’t come in His own land, but this kingdom of Ravan is the foreign land. Does Shiv Baba not come in His own land? OK, what land is foreign to Ravan? And, what is his own land? What is Shiv Baba’s own land and what land is foreign to Him? Since the Father comes to the foreign land, what is His own land? He has come to establish His land. He Himself comes to His own land. (One or two people gave their opinions.) Achcha, all of you churn this point. This is something to be understood very well. It is very easy to tell which land is the foreign land of Ravan. Ravan never enters Rama’s kingdom; but the Father has to come into the kingdom of Ravan because He has to change it. This is the confluence age. Neither does He come in the golden age, nor does He come in the iron age. He comes at the confluence age. So, this is Rama’s land as well as Ravan’s land. This shore belongs to Rama and that shore belongs to Ravan. This is the confluence. You children are now at the confluence, neither on this side nor on that side. You have to consider yourselves to be at the confluence age. We have no connection with that side. Your intellects have to break any connection to the old world. You have to stay here, in this old world, but your intellects understand that this old world is to be destroyed. The soul says: I am now at the confluence age. The Father has now come. He is also called the Boatman. We are now going across. How? With yoga. There is knowledge for yoga as well as knowledge for understanding. For yoga, it is explained: Consider yourself to be a soul and remember the Father. This too is knowledge. Knowledge means explanation. The Father has come to give you directions. He says: Consider yourselves to be souls. It is the soul that takes 84 births. The Father sits here and explains to you children in detail. This kingdom of Ravan is now to be destroyed. There are bondages of karma here whereas there are relationships of karma there. Bondage means sorrow. Relationship means happiness. Your karmic bondages now have to be broken. It is in your intellects that you now have Brahmin relationships. Later, your relationships will be with deities. There is only this one birth of Brahmin relationships. Then, there will be eight and twelve births of relationships with deities. Because you have this knowledge in your intellects, there is distaste for the dirty karmic bondages of the iron age. We no longer want to remain in karmic bondages of this world. We understand that all of those are devilish karmic bondages. We are going on an incognito pilgrimage. The Father has taught us this pilgrimage. Then we will become detached from these karmic bondages and become karmateet. These karmic bondages now have to be broken. We remember the Father so that we can become pure and understand the cycle and then become rulers of the globe. We are now studying. Therefore, there has to be an aim and objective and reward of our study. You know that your Teacher is the unlimited Father. The unlimited Father also taught us 5000 years ago. This is the drama. He will only teach those whom He taught a cycle ago. Many more will continue to come and expansion will continue to take place. Not everyone will go to the golden age. Everyone else will return home. On this side is hell and on that side is heaven. In worldly studies, they understand that they study here and that they receive the reward of that here. However, we are studying at the confluence age and will receive the reward of that in the new world. This is something new. No one else in the world would say that you will receive your reward in your next birth. It is only at this confluence age that you can study in this birth in order to receive the reward of it in your next birth. The Father too only comes at this confluence age. You are studying to become the most elevated human beings. Only once does God, the Ocean of Knowledge, come to teach you in order to send you to the new world, the land of immortality. This is the iron age, the land of death. We are studying for the golden age. We are studying to change from residents of hell into residents of heaven. This land is the foreign land and that land is our land. The Father has no need to enter that land of ours. That land is only for the children. Ravan doesn’t enter the golden age; Ravan disappears. Then, he appears again in the copper age. Therefore, the Father, too, disappears. No one in the golden age knows Him. So, why would they remember Him there? When the reward of happiness ends, the kingdom of Ravan begins. That is called the foreign land. We now understand that we are at the confluence age. We have now found the Father who can show us the path. Everyone else is continuing to stumble around. Those who became very tired and took this path a cycle ago will continue to come here. You guides have to show everyone this path. This path is the spiritual pilgrimage; it takes you directly to the land of happiness. You guides belong to the Pandava community. This can’t be called the kingdom of Pandavas. Neither the Pandavas nor the Kauravas have a kingdom; neither has a crown. On the path of devotion, both have been given a crown. Even if a crown were to be given, the crown of light cannot be given to the Kauravas. Even the Pandavas can’t be given the crown of light because they are still effort-makers; they fall while moving along. Therefore, to whom can it be given? This symbol is shown with Vishnu because he is pure. Everyone in the golden age is completely pure and viceless. They have crowns of light, of purity. At this time no one is pure. Sannyasis claim that they are pure but this world is not pure; they still have to take birth in this vicious world. This is Ravan’s impure land. The new world is called the pure kingdom, the golden age. The Father, the Master of the Garden, is now changing you children from thorns into flowers. He is the Purifier, the Boatman and also the Master of the Garden. The Master of the Garden has come into this forest of thorns. You only have the one Commander. Could Shankar be called the Yadavas’ Commander–in–Chief? In fact, Shankar doesn’t inspire destruction. The war begins when the time is right. It was said that missiles etc. were created through the inspirations of Shankar. They sat and made up such stories. The old world definitely has to be destroyed. When a building grows old, it crumbles and collapses and people die. This old world too has to be destroyed. Everyone will be buried and die. Some will drown. Some will die of shock. Poisonous gas bombs will also kill many people. It is in the intellects of you children that destruction has to take place. We are now going across to the other side. The iron age has to end and establishment of the golden age has to start. There will then be no wars for half the cycle. The Father has now come to inspire you to make effort. This is your last chance. If you delay any longer, there may be sudden death. Death is standing just ahead. People die suddenly just while sitting somewhere. Stay on the pilgrimage of remembrance before you die. You children now have to return home. Therefore, the Father says: Children, remember your home. Your final thoughts will lead you to your destination. Through this, you will return home. However, if you simply remember your home, your sins can’t be absolved. It is by remembering the Father that your sins can be absolved and you will return home. Therefore, continue to remember the Father. Keep your chart so that you can know what you have been doing throughout the whole day. Generally, one is able to remember everything one has done in life from the age of five or six. It isn’t that you have to write this all the time. You know that while you were sitting in the garden, you were remembering the Father. When there are no customers in your shop, you can sit down and remember the Father. You should be able to note this down inside you. If you want to write it all down, you must keep a diary with you. The main thing is: How can we become satopradhan from tamopradhan? How can we become the masters of the pure world? How can we become pure from impure? The Father comes and gives this knowledge. Only the Father is the Ocean of Knowledge. You now say: Baba, I belong to You. I have always belonged to You. It is just that I forgot You and became body conscious. Now that You have told us everything, I am now once again becoming soul conscious. In the golden age, we were soul conscious. We would each shed our body and take our next one in great happiness. You children have to imbibe all of this so that you can become worthy of explaining to others. Then, many will be benefitted. Baba knows that you are becoming serviceable, numberwise, according to the drama and according to the effort you make. Achcha, even if you aren’t able to explain the tree to anyone, it’s easy for you to tell anyone: Consider yourself to be a soul and remember the Father. This is absolutely easy. Only the Father says: Remember Me and your sins will be absolved! No human beings, other than you Brahmins, can say this. No one else knows what souls are or what the Supreme Soul is. If you tell someone just like that, the arrow can’t strike the target. One has to know God’s form. All of these souls are actors of the drama. Each soul acts through his body. Souls shed their bodies, and take their next and continue to play their parts. Those actors change their costumes and play their different parts. You change your bodies. There, they wear the costume of a male or a female for a temporary period. Here, when a soul takes a male costume, he remains in a male body throughout that lifetime. Those dramas are limited, whereas this drama is unlimited. The first and foremost thing the Father says is: Remember Me! Do not even use the word “yoga” because people learn many different types of yoga. All of those belong to the path of devotion. The Father says: Now remember Me and remember your home and you will return home. Shiv Baba enters this one to give you teachings. By remembering the Father, you souls will become pure. Then the pure souls will fly home. The more remembrance you have and the more service you do, the higher the status you claim. Many obstacles come in remembrance. If you do not become pure, punishment has to be experienced in the land of Dharamraj. Your honour is lost and your status is destroyed. At the end, you will have visions of everything. However, you won’t be able to do anything at that time. You will have a vision of how so much was explained to you and how you still didn’t have remembrance and that your sins still remain. Therefore, there has to be punishment for those. That won’t be the time to study. You will have to repent for what you have done. You wasted time unnecessarily! Punishment has to be experienced! Nothing can be done at that time. If you fail, you fail! At that time, there is no question of studying again. In other studies, if someone fails, there is the chance to study again, but, here, your study will have ended. In order that you don’t have to repent at the end, the Father advises you: Children, study very well. Do not waste your time gossiping, otherwise there will be great repentance. Maya makes you perform many wrong actions. Even if you’ve never stolen anything, Maya will make you do that. You will then become aware that Maya deceived you. First, the thought enters the heart to pick something up. You have been given understanding as to whether something is right or wrong. If you pick something up, that is wrong. If you don’t pick it up, that is right. So, what are you going to do? It is good to remain pure. Do not become slack by being influenced by bad company. We are brothers and sisters. Therefore, why should we become trapped in someone’s name and form? Do not become body conscious. However, Maya is very powerful. Maya brings thoughts and makes you do wrong things. The Father says: You mustn’t do anything wrong. There is a battle and you fall and you then don’t have any right understanding at all! We have to do everything right. Become sticks for the blind. This is the best duty of all. You have time to do everything for your livelihood. You also have to sleep at night. When souls become tired, they go to sleep. Even the bodies go to sleep. So you have time for your livelihood and for rest. Therefore, engage yourselves in My service for the rest of the time. Keep a chart of remembrance. You do write it, but then, as you move along, you fail. It’s when you don’t remember the Father and when you don’t do service that everything you do is wrong. 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:
- Do not waste your time in gossiping. Be careful that Maya doesn’t make you perform wrong actions. Do not become slack by being influenced by bad company. Do not become body conscious and become trapped in someone’s name and form.
- As well as remembering the home, also remember the Father. Keep a diary of your chart of remembrance. Note down what you did throughout the whole day and for how long you remembered the Father.
|Blessing:||May you use the speciality of being generous-hearted, uplift yourself and everyone else and become an image of support and upliftment.
To be generous-hearted means to have a generous and big heart in every task. To be co-operative in making others virtuous with your virtues, to be co-operative in filling others with power and specialities means to be a great donor. To be generous-hearted is the speciality of a generous soul. Souls who are filled with such specialities receive the blessing of success in becoming images of support and upliftment because to become an embodiment of support in service means to become an instrument to uplift the self and everyone else.
|Slogan:||Keep yourself and the Father combined in such a way that no third person can separate you.|
