    Brahma Kumaris Murli English 3 September 2023

    03/09/23 Madhuban Avyakt BapDada Om Shanti 25/11/1995

    Become free from following the dictates o Brahma Kumaris Murli English 3 September 2023 f others (parmat), thinking about others (parchintan) and looking at others (pardarshan), and become one who uplifts others.

    Today, BapDada is looking at all of those who are children of the Father, those who are special souls. Whether they are from Bharat or from any corner of the foreign lands, BapDada is seeing all the special souls as being very close to Him. BapDada is pleased to see His special children. You children also experience happiness seeing the Father, do you not? You feel happy and this is why you come running here. So, too, the Father also has the happiness that each child of His is a special soul. Whether you souls are old, uneducated, young children, in your youth or householders, you are special souls when compared to the whole world. No matter that they are great scientists who show miracles, even if they have reached the moon, when compared to the special children of the Father, they are ignorant. They know about the five elements, and have even gained victory over them, but they do not know about the tiny point, the soul. Here, if you ask even a little child, "Who are you?", what would he say? He would say, "I am a soul". He would even show you where each soul resides. However, ask a scientist, "What is a soul?", and he has not yet been able to know about souls. No matter how great someone is in terms of history or special, in terms of the world, if he doesn't know himself, then, a child of five years here is more special. At the beginning, you all had a very intoxicating song. Do you remember the song? You used to have a song: No matter how great a lord or merchant someone may be, if he doesn't know Alpha, no matter how great he is, whether he is a political leader or an actor, if he doesn't know himself, what does he know? So, you are such special souls. Here, on one side, you have uneducated, old mothers whereas there, on the other side, they may have a mahatma, yet these old mothers would say with intoxication that they have attained God. The mahatma would say that it is very difficult to attain God, whereas here, what would a mother who is 100 years old and whose intellect has faith say? You might be still searching for God, but I have attained God. So, what is the mahatma compared to you? Householders would say with intoxication that they sleep in a double bed. While living together, you say, "We are still pure even whilst living together because we have the Father in between us." However, what would a mahatma say? He would say that it is impossible for fire and cotton wool to live together. Yet, what is it for you? Householders speak! Is it easy or difficult to remain pure? What is it like? Is it easy? Or, does it sometimes feel difficult? Those who are strong can speak even in a large gathering and say with intoxication that purity is their original religion. It is not another external religion, but their own original religion. Whatever belongs to you is easy to follow, whereas whatever is external to you feels difficult. Impurity is an external religion whereas purity is your original religion. So, do you know your speciality? Many new ones have come, but no matter how new you are, the lesson of purity is firm, isn't it? There are even some children who say that for the year until they meet the Father, they are all right, and that it is because everyone else knows that they are very strong in following the disciplines. However, once they have been to Madhuban and seen it, once they have come here, they then become careless when they return. However, just think about it! To whom did you make the promise of purity? To the Father. It is the Father's order. So, if you become careless after having made a promise to the Father, who would experience the loss? In the Brahmin family, when one leaves, ten others come. However, those souls still experience a loss because of being weak. Therefore, those new children who have come here for the first time, you have come to Father’s home and this is your great fortune. However, do not ever let the line of your fortune decrease even slightly. Continue to increase your fortune.

    In the world outside, when a baby is born, what does everyone say? They say: “May he live forever or have a long life.” So, BapDada also wishes to see the eternal speciality of the special souls, not the speciality of just a short time. It should not be something that only lasts for one or two years. Only those who remain eternal receive an eternal reward. So, are the mothers strong? Whether you are one year old, two years or four years old in knowledge, the completion will take place at the same time. Destruction will take place at the same time. Or, will you say that you are still only two years old and that you wish to have your silver jubilee and then destruction can take place. It will not be like that. This is why those who have come later have to go ahead. You can earn a great deal in a short time. At least you have received some time to make effort. As you make further progress, you will not receive even this much time. You were told earlier that the board for being “late” has been put up, but the board for being “too late” has not yet been put up. So, all of you are lucky. Simply continue to move forward whilst keeping your fortune in your awareness. Do not get involved in other matters.

    Today, BapDada was seeing why the time for making effort of some children goes to waste. No one wants this to happen; you all want your time to be used in a worthwhile way. Yet, in beween, sometimes half-an-hour, sometimes fifteen minutes and sometimes even five minutes are wasted, and so what is the reason for that? Today, BapDada saw that there are three reasons why the efforts of the majority of you are very little or weak.

    1. While you continue to move along, you mix the dictates of other souls with shrimat. Someone may have told you something, and you would think that the one who has told you that is a very good, honest maharathi. You even have faith in that soul and, when such a soul relates something to you, it is interesting. It is, of course, good to hear news. Just as you love listening to the news of the world, so too, you also love listening to the news of the Brahmin world. So, because of having faith in that soul, you absorbed whatever he told you within yourself. You did not cut him off. So, of course, it may be true; news can also be true, not all of it is false, some may even be honest, but what is the Father's direction? Is it Baba's order that you may listen to such news? No. Whatever you have no connection with, if it is just interesting news, and you cannot do anything about it, if you heard it, that news would have entered your intellect and so your time was wasted, was it not? You mixed the dictates of others with the shrimat that you have received from the Father. The Father's direction is that, whilst listening, do not hear. So, why did you hear it? You have instilled that habit. For instance, someone may relate some news to you once, and you enjoyed that very much because it was something new. Sometimes, it happens that you listen to them once, and so where would they go the second time? They would come to you. You became a dustbin for them. Whatever such news they have, they will come and relate that to you because you listened to them before. Therefore, explain to them and liberate them from such matters. Do not increase your interest by listening to them. However, if you do listen to them, have that much courage that you are able to put a full stop for them and for yourself for all time. Let there not be the slightest feeling of dislike even in your mind or vision for anyone who shares such news. If you have this much power, then this is not listening to them, but it is like bringing benefit to them. However, in the result, it is seen that the majority of you collect rubbish, and, little by little, it makes a difference in your behaviour and activity. Then, even if there isn't anything else, you would not have any feeling of serving that soul, but you would feel heavy. This is known as mixing the dictates of others with shrimat. Even BapDada listens to the news, but what happens is that the intention of the majority of you changes. Even in relating something, the intention changes. One comes and says: I saw that these two were speaking. Hearing this, the second person says: They were standing there, but not standing very nicely. So, that is an addition. Then a third one says: They always do that. Whatever were their feelings and intentions about the conversation, they were changed. So this dictate of others spoils the atmosphere. Therefore, the reason that time is wasted is: firstly, by your following the dictates of others and secondly, by your thinking about others. It cannot happen that you hear something and then don't relate it to eight or ten others. This should not happen. Even when others are in a far-away country, you would write to them about how something new happened here, and that you would definitely tell them about it when they come here. So, what is this? Thinking about others. When you tell four people about something, you spoil the feelings of the four people for that one person. Then, once the thinking of others starts, its speed becomes very fast and carries on for a long time.

    2. Thinking about others does not finish in one or two seconds. BapDada tells you that, to make someone interested in listening to knowledge, you should relate knowledge in the form of a story: What happened first, and then what happened after that. Therefore, their interest increases in this way as to what happened next and what happened after that. This type of thinking about others is also an interest. The other person would then definitely think: What happened next? Yes, it must have happened like this... So this story also becomes very long. BapDada sees and hears about the things in everyone's heart. No matter how much someone tries to hide it, BapDada does not reveal it openly in public, but He does know everything and He sees everything. No matter how much someone says, "No, I don't ever do this", BapDada has a register of how many times you did something, what you did, at what time you did it and to how many you did it. Baba has a register of all of that. It is just that He sometimes has to remain quiet. So, the second aspect is in thinking about others. They would never have thoughts of the eternal self. When anything happens, those who think about others would blame others for their own mistake, and those who think about others are number one in making up stories. They would blame others for their mistake and prove themselves to be right in such a way that those seniors who hear them would have to remain silent. So, having thoughts of the original self is not just repeating points of knowledge or relating points of knowledge or listening to points of knowledge. Rather, having thoughts of your original self means to finish your own subtle weaknesses and little mistakes by thinking those thoughts; to transform mistakes is to have thoughts of your original self. However, all of you are very clever at listening and relating knowledge; that is, at having thoughts of knowledge. That is churning, but the deep meaning of having thoughts of the original self is to be thinking about oneself. When the results are announced, it will not be seen that someone churned the knowledge very well or that he used the knowledge for service very well. Before that result, one has to have thoughts of the original self and transform oneself. To have thoughts of the original self means to bring about transformation. So, for the results, BapDada is telling you that when the final results are announced, the first marks will be for your being a practical embodiment of dharna. Those who are an embodiment of dharna will be natural yogis anyway. If you want to claim high marks, what should you do? What do you give lectures on nowadays? On values. So check what you relate to others about their value. First, there are marks for service, but there are also marks for being an embodiment of dharna: one mark for service and ten marks for dharna. If you are not able to give knowledge, but you are able to create an impact with your dharna, you then accumulate marks for your service.

    Many people think nowadays that they receive a very small chance to do service, that they want to do more service. "I should receive a chance first". Why? "Others are given a chance, so why am I not?" It is very good to do service, because when the intellect is free, it creates a lot of waste. Therefore, doing service is a very good way of keeping your intellect busy. You had very good enthusiasm for doing service, but, according to the drama or the circumstances, you were not given that chance, then, if instead of serving others, your stage fell, or the service you did brought about fluctuation, then what service was that? What practical fruit would you receive from that service? True service, service done with love and service done with everyone's blessing, gives the instant, practical fruit of happiness. However, while doing service, if you have any ill-feeling, do you know what that Brahmin feeling is called? What do Brahmins call that feeling? Flu. What does someone who has flu do? He goes to sleep. He would not eat anything, but would go to sleep. Here too, what happens when someone has a bad feeling. He would either stop eating or sit and sulk. So, this is also flu, is it not? If you are an embodiment of dharna and a true server, you would not do service with any selfish motive. One is to do service with benevolent feelings and the other is to do service with selfish motives - such as that your name is glorified, that your photograph will be printed in the newspaper or shown on TV, that this will happen. There are many ways for your name to be glorified amongst the Brahmins; your teacher would keep you in the front and would ask about you. All of these feelings are of service done with selfishness. However, according to the present time, according to the revelation at this time, service will now come to you. The aspect at the time of the establishment was something different. You will not have to chase after service; service will itself come walking to you. If you are a true server and you do not receive any other service, BapDada says that you still have to serve with your face and your behaviour. Let your face give a vision of the Father. Let your face and your behaviour remind others of the Father. This is the foremost service. Be such serviceable souls who do not have any selfish motives. Do not think that you alone should be given a chance. "I should be given this chance. Why am I not given this chance? I should be given this chance." Such thoughts are also called selfishness. Even though your name is not well known in the Brahmin family, though you are a good server yet your name is not known, the Father has your name. Since your name is in the Father’s heart, what more do you want? And, not just in the Father's heart, but, because BapDada keeps the accounts, when the final number is given, your number will be ahead. You may not have received a chance, you may be right, but you were not given a chance, and so that is also noted. If you asked for a chance and did something, you also had some marks cut by doing that. The account of Dharamraj is no less. It is a very subtle account. This is why you have to be an altruistic server. You should not have any selfish motive. You should have the motive of bringing benefit. If, for instance, you are given a chance, but someone else thinks that it would be very good if he receives that chance, and that person is also worthy of it, then if you give the chance to that one, your share is accumulated in that. Even if you did not do it, even by giving someone else the chance to do it, you accumulate your share of it. You do wish to become a true diamond, and so you must understand the accounts. Do not move along carelessly and think, "It is all right, it happened anyway...". The account book is very subtle. The Father does not have to do anything. Everything is automatic. Sometimes, BapDada looks at the children's account book. The first aspect is following the dictates of others and the second aspect is thinking about others.

    The third aspect is looking at others. The majority of you is very clever at looking at others. When you look at others, where would that vision go afterwards? It would then enter your intellect. However, how can those who use their time in looking at others have time to look at their own selves? Many children think that many things happen and that whatever happens, they hear about it and they see it. The greater the gathering, the more things happen. Why do these things happen? Many think that these things should not happen. It is right to say that they should not happen, but why do you spend time on whatever you think should not happen? These things are a test paper. The greater the study, the harder the paper. To create this atmosphere is a test paper for everyone: To what extent do you keep yourself safe from following the dictates of others, from thinking about others and from looking at others? There are two separate things. One is responsibility - to look and hear with the feeling of benevolence. It is all right if it is your responsibility and you have benevolent feelings. However, to see or listen to or think about other things about them, and thereby create an upheaval in your own stage, is wrong. If you consider yourself to be responsible, then before taking on that responsibility, you must make your brake very powerful. Before you drive up a hill, you are warned in advance to check your brakes. Responsibility is also to have an elevated stage. You may take on a responsibility, but first check whether you are able to put a dot in a second. Or, is it that you put a dot, but, instead of a dot, a question mark is applied? That is wrong. Your time and energy are wasted in that. First of all, make your brake powerful. You saw something, you heard something and you brought benefit. You did as much as possible and put a full stop. If you have such a stage, then take that responsibility. Otherwise, see but do not see, hear but do not hear. Maintain thoughts of your original self. There is benefit in this. So, what was the lesson of today? These three aspects: become free from following the dictates of others, from thinking about others and from looking at others. What else should you do? Become free from these things and imbibe one thing. This one thing is to be one who uplifts others. Finish these three things to do with others, and instead, do this one thing for others, that is, uplift others. Do you know how to do this? Which things will you liberate yourself from? What will you mothers do? Will you uplift your children or all others? Become those who uplift everyone. Is this easy or difficult? Achcha.

    To all the special souls in all directions of the world, to those who constantly have thoughts of the original self, to the elevated souls who constantly churn this knowledge, to the close souls whose every thought, word and deed are according to the Father’s shrimat, to the special souls in all four directions who make themselves and service move forward in the Diamond Jubilee, to such special souls, BapDada's love, remembrance and namaste.


    May you be powerful and become a mahavir to restore with the life-giving herb the consciousness of those who have become unconscious.

    Because the sun is powerful, it spreads its light everywhere with its power. Similarly, you have to become powerful and give everyone the life-giving herb and continue to do the service of making unconscious ones conscious. You will then be called a mahavir. Constantly be aware that you have to become victorious and make everyone else victorious. The way to become victorious is to keep yourself busy. Stay busy in the task of benefitting yourself and the world and the atmosphere will then continue to become one that destroys obstacles.


    Let your heart be constantly focussed on the one Comforter of Hearts. This is real tapasya. 

    *** Om Shanti ***
