Brahma Kumaris murli today in English -31/08/18 Morning Murli Om Shanti BapDada Madhuban
Sweet children, in order to make your stage that of a detached observer and cheerful, remain aware that each soul has his own part and that that which is predestined is taking place.
Question: By making which one effort can you children create your stage?
Answer: Don't care about the storms of Maya but never have a “don't care” attitude towards the shrimat that the Father gives you. By doing this, your stage will become unshakeable and immovable and it will also be cheerful and that of a detached observer. Your stage should be such that you never have to cry. Even if your mother dies, eat halva!
Song: You are the Mother and the Father.
Om Shanti. Children heard the song. Generally, people of the path of devotion go to the temples of Shiva, Lakshmi and Narayan, Radhe and Krishna or any of the other gods and goddesses. They sing the same praise in front of all of them: You are the Mother and the Father. Then they say: You are the One who gives knowledge, which means: You are the Mother and the Father and You are also the One who teaches us. In fact, you cannot say, "You are the Mother and the Father" to Lakshmi and Narayan or to Rama and Sita because they would have their own children who would not sing such praise. In fact, praise is of the one Shiva. Those people sing the praise, “Dev, Dev, Mahadev”, which means “You are greater than Brahma, Vishnu and Shankar.” They can't understand the meaning of anything on the path of devotion. The Father now says: You have performed a lot of devotion. Now understand what I say and think about what is true and what is false. You children now understand that the praise that is sung of the Father and the deities is all wrong. Only that which I explain to you now is right. He explains to you children: This is an inverted tree and its Seed is the Supreme Father, the Supreme Soul. He lives up above. He is the Living Seed, whereas you are the children. Some people say that there is a soul in all seeds. However, those are non-living. The Father is called the Living Seed of the human world tree. People sing: O God, the Father! Achcha, you would not call a tree the Living Ocean of Knowledge. People have knowledge that that is a seed. The seed should definitely have knowledge of the tree. However, because it is non-living, it cannot say anything. Human beings understand that the seed is down below and that the tree emerges from it. The kalpa tree is compared to the banyan tree. That (kalpa tree) is living and this is non-living. There is a very big banyan tree in Calcutta. Its foundation has decayed but the tree is still standing. The wonder is that it doesn't have a foundation. The Father explains: This tree doesn't have a foundation either. The deity religion has disappeared but the rest of the tree exists. There are so many sects and cults. This is the unlimited tree. The unlimited Father sits here and explains. Baba writes that the birthday of Shiv Baba is like a diamond because Shiv Baba is the only One who changes us from shells into diamonds and creates heaven. Bharat has now become so poverty-stricken. People say, "Hum so, so hum", but they don't understand anything. Sannyasis have been beating drums, saying "I, the soul, am the Supreme Soul and the Supreme Soul is the soul." You now know the meaning of everything. We have become Brahmins, then we will become deities and we will then go through the castes of warriors, merchants etc. The soul says: I will go through these castes. I was a shudra and have now come into the Brahmin caste. The Supreme Father, the Supreme Soul, is the One who has created everyone. He is also the One who created the deities Brahma, Vishnu and Shankar. The Father now sits here and explains to you children. You say: You are the Mother and the Father. Therefore, this one is truly the mother. The Father sits here and entertains you children. Meera was a devotee on the path of devotion. That is the rosary of devotees. There is also the rosary of knowledge. The name of the rosary of knowledge is the rosary of Rudra. "The rosary of Ravan" wouldn’t be said. People don't perform devotion of Ravan. There is the rosary of Rama. Although it is now the kingdom of Ravan, there is no rosary of Ravan. There is the rosary of devotees, but there cannot be a rosary of devils. One of the highest devotees was Meera who had visions of Shri Krishna. She completely let go of the opinion of society. Who is the second highest devotee? Narad. He is praised and his example is given. People have sat and made up those stories, because they are not real. The Father says: All males and females are Sita. All are in Ravan’s cottage of sorrow. It is not a question of Lanka, but of Bharat. Only the one Father is the Bestower of Salvation for All. If that One didn't exist, Bharat would be of no use. It is Bharat that becomes the most impure and the most pure. Bharat is the greatest pilgrimage place of all. Although people go to the pilgrimages places of their own prophets, the Bestower of Salvation for All is the one Father. Bharat alone is the imperishable land. The Father says: I come here and give liberation-in-life to Bharat and liberation to all the rest. I am the Bestower of Salvation for All. There is only the one Father who establishes the land of truth. He makes you children worthy of ruling in the land of truth, but He Himself doesn't rule. The Father sits here and explains: I come here every cycle to give Bharat salvation. I take all the rest back with Me to liberation. The soul of every human being has an imperishable part recorded in him. This means that that which is predestined is taking place. For instance, when a person’s father has died and taken another birth, what would be achieved by that person crying? You just have to observe everything as a detached observer. This is the drama. There is no need to cry. You have to live at home with your family. If your mother dies, eat halva, or if your wife dies, eat halva. This is said for those who live at home with their families. Your stage should be such that you don't experience any sorrow. You have to continue to remember your unlimited Father. Your stage should be as unshakeable as when Ravan was unable to shake Angad. Maya is very powerful. You remain stable. No matter how many storms of Maya come, don't care about them. You mustn't be afraid or confused by them. Make effort and make your stage strong. Very good things are explained. You understand that you are Parvatis. Shiv Baba is telling you the story of immortality. In the land of immortality, there is happiness from its beginning through the middle to its end. In this land of death, there is nothing but sorrow from its beginning through the middle to the end. All the festivals etc. refer to this time. There are no festivals of Lakshmi and Narayan etc. What service do they do? You Brahmins do a lot of service. The souls of deities are not called social workers: they are neither physical nor spiritual social workers. You are double social workers: physical and spiritual. OK, people find it difficult to become conquerors of attachment because they don't have any aim or objective. Here, you have a lot of attainment and so you should have totally destroyed your attachment. Have yoga with the one Baba. Baba, o sweet Baba, we now know You fully! Previously, we used to say "God, the Father" just for the sake of saying it. You have now come here to give us the sovereignty of heaven once again. This iron age is going to become a graveyard, so why should we remember it? The Father says: While living at home with your family in this graveyard, remember Me. This is very easy. People continue to worship Krishna on the path of devotion, and their intellects continue to wander to their businesses etc. The horse of the mind constantly runs somewhere or other like a madman. The Father says: While earning your physical livelihood, connect your intellects in yoga to Me. You will receive a lot of attainment by remembering Me. You receive temporary attainment from everyone else. OK, you performed so much intense devotion, but what happened then? You had visions and that was all! You didn't receive liberation or liberation-in-life. The Father now says: You are to become the masters of the world for 21 births. In heaven, even the womb is like a palace. Here, the womb is a jail. You don't have to celebrate the birthday of Krishna at all. You just have to explain when it was the birth of Krishna. Where is Krishna now? You know that you are now studying to become the masters of the land of Krishna. You are sitting with the Father. Would you salute your father by putting your palms together in front of Him? When a teacher is teaching you, do you put your palms together in front of him? Do you have to praise him? You have to study with the teacher. Do children repeatedly put their palms together in front of their father? At this time, you are at home. You have the feeling that that One is the Father and also the Purifier. At this time, because there is the eclipse of the five vices, you have become absolutely ugly. The five vices have made you ugly. In the golden age, you were beautiful and you are now ugly. Shri Krishna was beautiful and is now ugly. How many times would he have become ugly and beautiful? The land of Kans, the devil, becomes the land of Krishna, and the land of Krishna then becomes the land of Kans. You souls are residents of Brahmand. It is called the brahm element. To say "I am brahm" is also an illusion. You are the masters of Brahmand. Your throne is the brahm element. The Father says: I am the Master of Brahmand. You souls also say: Actually, our land is Brahmand. There, you souls are pure. You are the masters of Brahmand and then also the masters of the world. I am only the Master of Brahmand. I have to enter this old body of the one who has taken the full 84 births. You children should read or listen to the murli very well five or six times, for only then will it sit in your intellects and your mercury of happiness rise. Maya repeatedly makes you forget to have remembrance. There is no question of forcing yourself in this. When you have time, just remember Baba and become like a tortoise. The best time is in the early morning hours. The effect of that time would last throughout the whole day. It has also been explained to you children that you first have to feed the One who is feeding you and then eat it yourself. You are eating from Shiv Baba's sacrificial fire and so you first have to offer Him bhog. You have all those visions in the subtle region. It is fixed in the drama. You have to offer bhog to Shiv Baba. He is incorporeal. It is remembered that the deities desired to have Brahma Bhojan because you become deities from Brahmins by eating Brahma Bhojan. Deities come to the subtle region and a happy gathering takes place there. All of that is fun and games. 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. Keep your aim and objective fully in your intellect and become a conqueror of attachment. Forget this graveyard and remember the Father. Do spiritual and physical service.
2. First of all, feed the One who is feeding you and then eat. The time of the early morning hours is good. Therefore, wake up at that time and remember the Father. You definitely have to read or listen to the murli five or six times.
Blessing: May you be an embodiment of all attainments and finish all name and trace of sorrow and peacelessness with your spiritual intoxication.
To have spiritual intoxication means to see souls while walking and moving around and to be soul conscious. By having this intoxication you experience all attainments. All sorrow is removed from a soul who is an embodiment of attainments and has spiritual intoxication. There is then no name or trace of sorrow or peacelessness because sorrow and peacelessness arise from impurity. Where there is no impurity, how could there be sorrow or peacelessness? Pure souls have natural happiness and peace within them.
Slogan: Those who are constantly absorbed in the love of One are free from obstacles.
