Essence of Murli August 23, 2014:
Essence: Sweet children, do the service of purifying the elements with yoga because it is only when the elements have become pure that the deities will set foot in this world.
Question: There cannot be any type of peacelessness in your new kingdom. Why?
Answer: 1. Because you will have received that kingdom as your inheritance from the Father. 2. The Father, the Bestower of Blessings, (Vardata) gives blessings (vardaan) and the inheritance (varsa) now and, for this reason, there cannot be peacelessness there. When you belong to the Father, you claim your whole inheritance.
Essence for dharna:
1. With cleanliness in your heart, inculcate the Father's wonderful knowledge into your life. Create an elevated reward by making effort. Don't just say "Drama!" and stop making effort.
2. In order to be saved from being deceived by criminal eyes in the kingdom of Ravan, practice looking through your third eye of knowledge. Imbibe purity, which is the number one character.
Blessing: May you be an embodiment of solutions (samaadhaan swaroop) and finish (samaapt) all waste thoughts (sankalp) by knowing their cause.
There are two main reasons for waste thoughts. 1) Arrogance. (abhimaan) 2) feeling insulted (apmaan) : Why did I get less? I should also have this status. I too should be put in the front. There is either the feeling of being insulted or arrogance in this. In name, respect, honour, (naam, maan, shaan) in being put in the front, in service — to feel any type of arrogance or insult is the reason for waste thoughts. To know the reason (kaaran) for this and to find a solution (nivaaran) to it is to become an embodiment of solutions. (samaadhaan swaroop)
Baba says, consider yourself to be an instrument-you are a karanhar and the Father is Karavanhaar- He is getting His tasks performed through you. This brings about humility as the consciousness of “I” is removed. Then, there is neither arrogance (abhimaan) nor the feeling of being insulted (apmaan). There is then no need of name, respect, honour, (naam, maan, shaan) or being in the forefront in service, because, being a karanhaar, you are merely an instrument used by the Father. By remaining in solitude and through concentration you attain the powers to discern and decide and find easy solutions to all problems while interacting with others and in doing anything in the name of God. This consciousness would eradicate a lot of reasons and finish waste thoughts and make you an embodiment of solutions. (samaadhaan swaroop)
Slogan: It is very easy (sahaj) to go on the pilgrimage to the sweet home with the power of silence.
From today’s slogan we can churn on:
With the power of silence, we have light, might and divine insight... we experience ourselves to be an image of true tapasya sitting in the cottage of the forehead, experiencing the alokik sweetness of introversion...we chase Maya away from a distance with the method of silence... by sitting in silence and by withdrawing like a tortoise and spinning the discus of self-realization, we go on the pilgrimage to the sweet home easily and become ever-healthy and ever-wealthy... by remembering the Father and the cycle in silence, by removing our hearts from this hell, we become deities free from disease for 21 births...
You children know whose children you are. He is called the true Lord and Master. (Sachcha Saheb) This is why, nowadays, you children are also called the children of the Lord and Master. (sahebzaade) There is a saying (poudhi) about truth: Eat that which is real and wear that which is real. (sach khaana, sach pahanna) Although this saying has been created by human beings, the Father sits here and explains the meaning of it.
You children know that the Father is the Highest on High, the One who is praised a great deal and who is also called the Creator. His first creation is you children. You are the children of that Father. All souls reside with the Father. That is called the Father's home, the sweet home. This is not the home. You children know that He is our sweetest Father. The land of peace is our sweet home and then the golden age is also called our sweet home because there is peace in every home there. Here, there is peacelessness in the home of physical mothers and fathers and peacelessness in the world. There, there is peace in the home as well as throughout the world.
The golden age is called a small new world. This old world is so huge. There is peace and happiness in the golden age. There is no question of chaos there because you will have received your inheritance of peace from the unlimited Father. Gurus give blessings: May you have sons! (Putrvaan bhav!) May you have a long life! (Aayushvaan bhav!) Those blessings that they give are not new. You automatically receive those as your inheritance from the Father.
The Father has now reminded you children of this. That parlokik Father is the One whom people of all religions remember on the path of devotion when it is the world of sorrow. This world is old and impure. In the new world, there is happiness; there is no trace of peacelessness. You children now have to become pure and virtuous. Otherwise, you will have to experience a great deal of punishment. Dharamraj, the One who enables you to settle all karmic accounts, is also with the Father. There will be the Tribunal. There will definitely be punishment for sins. Those who make good effort will not experience punishment. You receive punishment for your sins and that is also called the suffering of karma.
This is the foreign kingdom of Ravan and there is limitless sorrow within it. There is limitless happiness in the kingdom of Rama. You explain to many, but some are able to understand instantly whereas others take time to understand. If they understand less, you can understand that they started performing devotion later. Those who have done devotion from the beginning will understand knowledge quickly because they have to take a number ahead.
You souls know that you come here from your sweet home. There is silence, "movie" and "talkie". After children go into trance, they relate that everything there is "movie". Trance has no connection with the path of knowledge. The main thing is to consider yourself to be a soul and remember the Father, that's all; nothing else. The Father is incorporeal and His children, that is, souls in these bodies, are also incorporeal. No other question arises. The love of souls is for the one Supreme Father, the Supreme Soul.
Everyone's body is impure, and so you cannot have love for impure bodies. Souls may become pure, but their bodies are impure. Bodies do not become pure in this impure world. Souls have to become pure here; only then will these old bodies be destroyed. Souls are imperishable. The duty of souls is to remember the unlimited Father and become pure. When souls are pure, they need pure bodies and those will be received in the new world. Let souls become pure! Souls have to have yoga with the one Supreme Father, the Supreme Soul, that's all. This impure body must not even be touched. The Father is speaking to you souls. These matters have to be understood.
From the golden age to the iron age, you have been hanging on to your bodies. Both soul and body are pure there. You do not indulge in vice there through which neither the soul nor your body would become vicious. There are the Vallabhacharis (a sect) who do not allow their bodies to be touched. You know that their souls are not viceless nor are they pure. The Vallabhachari sect considers themselves to belong to a high clan; they do not allow their bodies to be touched. They do not understand that they are vicious and impure and that their bodies have been created through corruption. The Father comes and explains these aspects.
As souls become pure, they have to change their bodies. Your body can only become pure when the five elements become pure. In the golden age, the five elements are pure, and so the bodies are also pure. Deities cannot set foot in this impure world or have impure bodies. Both souls and their bodies are pure. This is why they only set foot in the golden age. This is an impure world.
Souls remember the parlokik Father, the Supreme Soul. One is your physical father and the other is your bodiless Father. The bodiless Father is remembered because you definitely receive such an inheritance of happiness from Him. This is why you cannot stay without remembering Him. Although you have now become tamopradhan, you still definitely remember that Father. However, people receive wrong teachings that say God is omnipresent. They then become confused about human beings only becoming human beings. The Father comes and explains all of those mistakes.
The Father only gives the one mantra of Manmanabhav! The meaning of this is: Consider yourself to be a soul and remember the Father. Only have this concern, that's all. It is through this that you will be able to become pure. Deities are pure. The Father now comes and makes you pure again like them. He keeps your aim and objective in front of you.
A sculptor is straight away able to create a sculpture of a human being by looking at his face. Those are non-living statues, but it is as though that person is sitting in front of them in the living form. Here, the Father says to you: You have to become living Lakshmi and Narayans. How will you become those? You will become deities from human beings through this study and through purity. This is the school to change from humans into deities. Those sculptors create many sculptures; that is called art. They create an identical face.
Here, there is no question of an identical face. Those are non-living images whereas you will become this naturally in the living form there. The bodies of the five elements will be alive. Those non-living images have been created by human beings. They cannot be identical to the deities because a photograph cannot be taken of deities. Although they have a vision of them in trance, they cannot take their photograph. They would say that they had a vision of them but they themselves are not able to create that image; nor can anyone else. You yourselves can only become like that when you finish taking knowledge from the Father. Only then will you become identical to what you were in the previous cycle.
This is such a wonderful, natural drama! The Father sits here and explains to you the wonderful things of nature. Human beings don't even think about these matters. They go in front of the deity idols and bow their heads.
Although they understand that they used to rule that kingdom, they do not know when. They don't know anything about when they will come again or what they will do when they come. You know that those who belonged to the sun and moon dynasties have been and gone. They will become exactly the same again by studying this knowledge. This is a wonder.
Therefore, the Father now explains: By making such effort you will become the same deities again. You will carry on with the activity that you did previously in the golden and silver ages. This is such wonderful knowledge! This knowledge can only remain in your intellects when there is cleanliness in your hearts. These aspects cannot remain in anyone else's intellect; you need effort for this. You cannot receive fruit without making effort. The Father continues to inspire you to make effort.
Even though everything happens according to the drama, you still have to make effort. You must not just sit down and think: If it is in the drama I will be able to make effort. There are many who have such crazy thoughts as: There will surely be effort if it is in my fortune. Ah, but it is you who have to make effort! There is the effort and then the reward.
Human beings ask: Which is greater, the effort or the reward? Reward is greater but effort is said to be greater because it is through that that your reward is created. It is only by making effort that every human being receives everything. There are some who have such stone intellects that they give this a wrong meaning. It is understood that this is not in their fortune; they fall apart. Here, you children are inspired to make so much effort.
You are given explanations day and night. You definitely have to reform your character. The number one character is to be pure. Deities are pure anyway. It is when they fall that their character is spoilt and they become completely impure. You now understand that your character was A one. Then you fell completely. Everything depends on purity. It is in this that there is great difficulty. People's eyes deceive them a great deal because this is the kingdom of Ravan. There, your eyes do not deceive you. You receive the third eye of knowledge. This is why it is said: Religion is might.
The Almighty Authority Father comes and establishes this deity religion. It is souls that do everything, but they do it through human forms. That Father is the Ocean of Knowledge. (Gyan ka Sagar) His praise is totally separate from the praise of the deities. So, why would you not remember such a Father? He is called the knowledge-full One, the Seed. Why is He called the Truth, the Living Being and the Embodiment of Bliss? (Sat,Chit,Anand)
The seed of the tree is aware of the tree emerging it. However, that seed is non-living. It is as though the soul in that is non-living, whereas the soul of a human being is conscious. A living soul can also be called an ocean of knowledge. The tree grows from small to large, so there definitely is a soul, but it is unable to speak.
There is so much praise of the Supreme Soul; He is the Ocean of Knowledge. This praise does not belong to souls. This praise is only sung of the Supreme Soul. He is called Ishwar etc. His true name is the Supreme Father, the Supreme Soul. Param means Supreme. The praise people sing of Him is very powerful. Now, day by day, His praise is decreasing because their intellects were sato at first, then they became rajo and they have now become tamopradhan.
The Father comes and explains all of these things. I come every 5000 years to make the old world new. It is remembered that the golden age is the truth, and whatever happens there is the truth (satyug adi hai bhi sat, hosi bhi sat) (written in the Granth Sahib — the holy book of the Sikhs). Some good versions are written because they are not so impure. Those who come later are not so impure. The people of Bharat were completely satopradhan and they are the ones who have become the most tamopradhan at the end of their many births. This cannot be said about the founders of religions. Neither do they become as satopradhan, nor do they become as tamopradhan. They neither experience as much happiness nor as much sorrow.
Whose intellects have become the most tamopradhan? Out of all the religions, it is those who were at first deities who have fallen the most. People sing praise of Bharat because it is very ancient. If you think about it, at this time, Bharat has fallen a great deal. The rise and fall of Bharat is the rise and fall of the deities. You have to use your intellect to understand this. We experienced a great deal of happiness when we were satopradhan. Then we also experience so much sorrow because we are tamopradhan.
There are four main religions: Deityism, Islam, Buddhism and Christianity. Expansion has taken place through them. The people of Bharat do not know which religion they belong to. Because of not knowing their religion, they leave their religion. In fact, their religion is the main one but they have forgotten it. Those who are wise and sensible understand that those people have no honesty in their religion. Otherwise, what was Bharat before and what has it become now?
The Father sits here and explains: Children, what were you? He sits here and explains the whole history. You were deities. You ruled for half a cycle and then, after half a cycle, your actions and your religion became corrupt (dharm bhrasht, karm bhrasht) in the kingdom of Ravan. You are now once again becoming those who will belong to the deity community. God speaks: Only to you children does the Father explain every cycle and enable you to belong to God's community. 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.
The spiritual children says namaste to the spiritual Father.
