Today Murli Brahma Kumaris: 17 January 2020
|Essence:||Sweet children, this old world has nothing left to offer. This is why you mustn’t let your heart remain attached to it. If you forget to have remembrance of the Father, there will be punishment.|
|Question:||Why do you disobey one of the Father’s main directions? What is that direction?|
|Answer:||The Father’s direction is: Never accept personal service from anyone, because you yourselves are servants. However, because of body consciousness, some of you disobey this direction that the Father gives. Baba says: If you accept that happiness here, your happiness there will be reduced. Many of you children say that you want to be independent but, in fact, all of you depend on the Father.|
|Song:||Let the support of my heart not break.|
Om shanti. God Shiva speaks to His saligrams. All human beings know about Shiva and the saligrams; both are incorporeal. You no longer say that God Krishna speaks. There is only the one God, and so, to whom does God Shiva speak? To you spiritual children. Baba has explained that you children must now only have a connection with that Father. Because only Shiv Baba is the Purifier, the Ocean of Knowledge and the One who gives you your inheritance of heaven, He is the One you have to remember. Brahma is His most fortunate chariot. He gives you the inheritance through this chariot. It isn’t Brahma who gives you your inheritance; he too receives an inheritance. Therefore, each of you children has to consider yourself to be a soul and remember the Father. For example, if there is any difficulty with the chariot or, for one reason or another, you don’t receive a murli, the attention of you children goes to Shiv Baba. He is never ill. You children have been given a lot of knowledge which you can explain to others. Some children explain such a great deal at exhibitions. You children have all of this knowledge. The knowledge shown in the pictures is in the intellect of each one of you. Nothing should stop you children. If there is no post or there is a strike, what would you do then? You children have knowledge anyway. You have to explain that the golden age did exist and that it is now the iron age, the old world. In the song too, you sing that this old world has nothing left to offer. You must not let your hearts remain attached to it. Otherwise, you will experience punishment. By having remembrance of the Father you can reduce your punishment. Let it not be that your remembrance of the Father is broken, so that you have to experience punishment and you return to the old world. There are many like this who have left. They do not even remember the Father. Their hearts are still attached to the old world. This present world is very bad. If you set your heart on someone, you will experience a great deal of punishment. You children must listen to this knowledge. You mustn’t listen to the songs of the path of devotion. You are now at the confluence age. It is at this confluence age that you receive knowledge from the Father, the Ocean of Knowledge. No one else in the world knows that only that One is the Ocean of Knowledge. When He gives knowledge to human beings they receive salvation. Only that One is the Bestower of Salvation, and so you have to follow His directions. Maya doesn’t leave anyone alone. It is because you become body conscious that you make one mistake or another. Some of you are semi-influenced by lust and some are influenced by anger. There are many storms in the mind. Because you fall in love with someone, you want to do this or that. You mustn’t let your heart become attached to anyone’s body. The Father says: Consider yourselves to be souls and all consciousness of your body will then finish. Otherwise, you are disobeying the Father’s directions. There is a huge loss when you become body conscious. Therefore, forget everything, including your own bodies. Simply remember the Father and the home. The Father explains to you souls: Whilst acting through your bodies, remember Me so that your sins will be burnt away. This path is very simple. Baba also knows that you continue to make mistakes. However, it shouldn’t be that you continue to be trapped by your mistakes. If you make a mistake, you mustn’t repeat it. Pull your own ears and tell yourself: I won’t make this mistake again. You must make effort. If you repeatedly make mistakes, you should understand that you are going to incur a great loss for yourself. It was because of your mistakes that you reached a state of degradation. What have you now become after coming down such a high ladder? Previously, you didn’t have this knowledge. All of you have now become wise with this knowledge, numberwise, according to the effort you have made. Remain introverted as much as possible. Keep your mouth closed! Those who are wise with knowledge would never attach their hearts to the old world. Their intellects would know that they want to bring about destruction of Ravan’s kingdom. This body is old and it belongs to Ravan’s community. Why should we remember Ravan’s community? We should only remember the one Rama (God). We have to become the ones who remain truly faithful to the Father. The Father says: Continue to remember Me and all your sins will be absolved. You have to remain faithful to the Father. This means being faithful to God. Devotees only remember God and pray: God, come and give us our inheritance of peace and happiness. On the path of devotion, devotees sacrifice themselves. Here, there is no question of sacrificing yourself. We die a living death, that is, we sacrifice ourselves to God. We have to belong to the Father for as long as we live, because we have to claim the inheritance from Him. We have to follow His directions. To sacrifice oneself whilst alive refers, in fact, to this time. On the path of devotion, they commit suicide, etc. Here, there is no question of committing suicide. The Father says: Consider yourselves to be souls and have yoga with the Father. Do not become body conscious. Whether you are sitting or walking, you must make effort to remember the Father. No one has yet passed with one hundred per cent; you all continue to fluctuate. If you are not cautioned about the mistakes you make, how are you going to stop making those mistakes? Maya doesn’t leave anyone alone. Many couples say: Baba, we have been defeated by Maya. We were making effort, but we don’t know what happened. We don’t know how we made such a serious mistake. They understand that, because of this mistake, their names will be defamed in the Brahmin clan. They are so strongly attacked by Maya that they aren’t even able to understand it. When they become body conscious, it is as though they also become senseless. When there is senselessness, there is also defamation. Their inheritance is then reduced. There are many who make such mistakes. Maya slaps them so hard that they are defeated. Then, in their anger, they slap others or hit them with their shoe. Then they repent. Baba says: You now have to make a lot of effort. You have caused yourselves harm and others too. You have lost so much. There are the omens of an eclipse of Rahu. The Father says: If you now donate your vices, you can be rid of those bad omens. Once there are the omens of Rahu, it does take time. It is difficult to climb the ladder once you have come down. When people have the habit of drinking alcohol, they find it very difficult to give it up. The biggest mistake some of you make is to dirty your face. You then continue to remember the bodies. Then, when you have children, you keep remembering them. What knowledge would you then be able to give to others? No one would listen to you. We are now making effort to remember the One alone and forget everyone else. You need to be very cautious about this. Maya is very powerful. Throughout the day, let your only concern be about remembering Shiv Baba. The play is now coming to an end and we will have to return home. Our bodies are going to be destroyed. To the extent that you remember the Father, accordingly you won’t remember anyone else and your body consciousness will be removed. This destination is very high. None of you must allow your heart to become attached to anyone but the one Father. Otherwise, that person will keep appearing in front of you. That one would definitely take revenge on you. Our destination is very high. It is easy to speak about this. Out of hundreds of thousands, only a very few become the beads of the rosary. Some win a scholarship. Those who make effort well will definitely win a scholarship. Become a detached observer and see how much service you do. Many of you children want to be released from having to work and to become engaged in this spiritual service, but Baba looks at each one’s circumstances. If you are alone and you have no relatives, that’s all right. Nevertheless, He says: Continue with your other business as well as this service. In your business you have to meet many people whom you can serve. You children have received a great deal of knowledge. The Father inspires a lot of service to be carried out through you children. He even enters some children and does service. He has to do service. How can those who have a responsibility sleep? Shiv Baba is the constantly ignited Lamp. The Father says: I do service day and night. If the body gets tired what can the soul do? The body can’t do enough work. The Father is tireless. He is the ignited Lamp who awakens everyone in the world. His part is wonderful. Only a few of you children know Him. The Father is the Death of all Deaths. If you don’t obey Him, you will experience punishment from Dharamraj. One of the Father’s principal directions is: Do not accept personal service from anyone. However, because you become body conscious, you disobey the Father’s directions. Baba says: You yourselves are servants. If you accept that happiness here, your happiness there would be reduced. If you form that habit, you would not be able to do without servants. Many say: I want to remain independent, but the Father says: It is good to remain dependent. All of you have to depend on the Father. It is by trying to be independent that you fall. All of you depend on Shiv Baba. The whole world depends on Him, and this is why they call out: O Purifier, come! You receive peace and happiness from Him but people don’t understand. You have to pass along the path of devotion. The Father comes when the night is ending. There cannot be the difference of even a second in when He comes. The Father says: I know this drama. No one else knows the beginning, the middle or the end of this drama. In the golden age, this knowledge will have disappeared. You now know the Creator and the beginning, middle and end of creation; this is called knowledge. Everything else is devotion. The Father is said to be knowledge-full. He is now giving us this knowledge. You children should have very good intoxication. However, you do also understand that a kingdom is being established. Some just become ordinary subjects or maids and servants. They don’t understand even a little knowledge! It is a wonder. This knowledge is very easy to understand. The cycle of our 84 births is now coming to an end. You will soon have to return to your home. We are the principal actors in this drama and so we know the whole drama. We play the hero and heroine parts throughout the whole drama. This is so easy, but if it’s not in your fortune, what effort would you make? This continues to happen in this study. Some of you still fail. This is such a large school. A kingdom has to be established. To the extent that each one of you children studies, each of you can understand for yourself what status you will claim. There are so many of you. Not all of you can become heirs. It is very difficult to become pure. The Father makes you understand everything so easily. This play is now coming to an end. You have to become completely pure, by having remembrance of the Father and you will then become the masters of the completely pure new world. Stay in remembrance for as long as possible. If this isn’t in your fortune, then, instead of remembering the Father, you remember others. By attaching your heart to someone else, you will have to cry a great deal. The Father says: Do not allow your heart to remain attached to this old world. This world has to be destroyed. No one else knows this. They think that the iron age has to continue for a lot longer. They are in a deep sleep. The service you do at exhibitions is a fast way to create subjects. Some kings and queens will also emerge. There are many who are very keen to do service. Some are rich and some are poor. You have to make others similar to yourselves. You will also receive benefit from that. You have to become sticks for the blind. Simply tell them to remember the Father and the inheritance. Destruction is standing ahead of you. Only when they see that the time of destruction is very close will they listen to what you tell them. Your service will increase and they will think: This is right. You continue to tell others that destruction has to take place. The service you do at exhibitions and fairs will also increase. You have to make effort to find a good hall. Tell them that you are prepared to pay rent for it. Tell them: Your name will be glorified even more. There are many people who have such halls. By making effort, you can receive three square feet of land. Until then, continue to hold small exhibitions. When you celebrate Shiv Jayanti, the sound will spread. Write: The day of Shiv Jayanti should be a public holiday. In fact, only that One’s birthday should be celebrated. He is the Purifier. The true stamp is that of the Trimurti. It says: Victory through Truth. This is the time of your gaining victory. You need someone good who can explain these things to others. The main ones at the centres need to pay attention to everyone. You can create your own stamp: This is Trimurti Shiv Jayanti. People will not understand anything if you simply say “Shiv Jayanti”. It is you children who have to do all the work. When you benefit many, you will also receive such a lift. You will receive a great lift from the service you do. There can be a lot of service accomplished at exhibitions. Subjects do have to be created. Baba continues to see which children pay attention to service. They are the ones who climb on to Baba’s heart throne. 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:
- If you make a mistake, pull your own ears there and then, so that you don’t make the same mistake again. Never become body conscious. Become an expert in this knowledge and remain introverted.
- Remain truly faithful to the one Father. Sacrifice yourself to Him for as long as you live. Don’t allow your heart to become attached to anyone else. Don’t do anything senseless.
|Blessing:||May you be a master creator and with your broad and unlimited intellect and your big heart give the experience of belonging.|
The first creation of a master creator is his body. Those who achieve complete success in being masters of their bodies give everyone the experience of belonging through their love and connection. By having a connection with such a soul, souls will experience one speciality or other of happiness, of a bestower, peace, love, bliss, co-operation, courage, zeal and enthusiasm. Only such souls are said to be those with broad and unlimited intellects and big hearts.
|Slogan:||Constantly continue to experience the flying stage with the wings of zeal and enthusiasm.|

Special homework to experience the avyakt stage in this avyakt month.
Before you perform a deed, speak a words or have a thoughts, first of all check whether they are the same as those of Father Brahma. The speciality of Father Brahma was: Whatever he thought, whatever he said, he did that. Follow the father in the same way. With the awareness of your own self-respect, with the power of the Father’s companionship and with the power of faith and determination, stay in your elevated position and finish all opposition, you will then easily experience the avyakt stage.
