23/12/14 Morning Murli BapDada Madhuban
The Father explains to you children about knowledge and devotion. You children understand that there is no devotion in the golden age and that you don’t even receive knowledge in the golden age. Krishna neither does devotion nor plays the flute of knowledge. That flute means to give knowledge. It is remembered: There is magic in the flute. Therefore, there must definitely be some magic. Simply to play a flute is a common thing. Religious beggars (fakirs) also play flutes. This flute has the magic of knowledge. Ignorance wouldn’t be called magic. People believe that Krishna used to play a flute and they praise him a lot. The Father says: Krishna was a deity. You continue to change from human beings into deities and from deities into human beings. There is the world of deities and also the world of human beings. It is through this knowledge that you change from human beings into deities. When it is the golden age, you have the inheritance of this knowledge. There is no devotion in the golden age. Devotion begins again when deities become human beings. Human beings are called vicious whereas deities are called viceless. The world of deities is called the pure world. You are now changing from human beings into deities. Deities do not have this knowledge. Deities are in salvation. Only those who are in degradation need this knowledge. You develop divine virtues by studying this knowledge. The behaviour of those who imbibe this knowledge is very divine. The behaviour of those who imbibe it less is mixed', it wouldn’t be called devilish. How could I call them My children if they don’t imbibe knowledge? If you children don’t recognize the Father, how can the Father recognize you? You insult the Father so much! To insult God is very bad. When you become Brahmins, you stop insulting the Father. Therefore, you have to churn this ocean of knowledge. Students churn this ocean of knowledge and make progress. You are being given this knowledge. Therefore, you have to churn it in order to be able to extract nectar from it.
What would you be churning if you are not churning knowledge? Churning devilish thoughts through which you only get rubbish! You are now God's students. You know that the Father is teaching you a study that changes you from human beings into deities. Deities do not teach you this. Deities would never be called the Ocean of Knowledge. Only the Father is the Ocean of Knowledge. You should ask yourself whether you have all the divine virtues. If you have any devilish traits, you should remove them; only then can you become deities. You are now at the most auspicious confluence age. You are becoming the most auspicious and so the atmosphere around you also has to be very good. Dirty words should not emerge from your lips. Otherwise, it would be said that you have a low status. You can understand about people from the atmosphere around them. The words they speak would only be hurtful. You children have to glorify the Father's name. Your faces should remain constantly cheerful. Only jewels should constantly emerge from your lips. This picture of Lakshmi and Narayan shows them as cheerful. Those souls had imbibed the jewels of knowledge. Such jewels would have emerged from their lips. They would have only listened to and spoken jewels of knowledge. They would have had so much happiness! The jewels of knowledge you are receiving now will later become true diamonds and jewels. The rosary of nine jewels is not one of jewels and diamonds; it is a rosary of living jewels. People think that it is of real jewels and wear rings etc. of nine jewels. It is only at this most auspicious confluence age that the rosary of jewels of knowledge is created.
These jewels of knowledge make you prosperous for 21 births. No one can steal these jewels from you. If you wear jewels here, someone would soon rob you. Therefore, you have to make yourselves very sensible and remove any devilish traits. The face of someone who has the devilish trait of anger becomes as red as copper. The face of someone who indulges in the vice of lust becomes ugly. Krishna is also portrayed as ugly. It was because of vice that he changed from beautiful to ugly. You children have to churn the ocean of knowledge about every aspect. This study enables you to receive a great deal of wealth. You children must have heard that an adviser to Queen Victoria was previously so poor that he used to study under a street lamp. However, that study is not one that enables you to receive jewels. By studying knowledge, you can claim a high position. So, it is the study that is useful, not the money. Education is wealth. That wealth is limited, whereas this wealth is unlimited. You now understand that the Father isteaching you and making you into the masters of the world. When you are there, you won’t study anything to earn an income. Because of the effort you make now, you receive an abundance of wealth there. Your wealth there is imperishable. Deities had a lot of wealth. Even when they fell on to the path of sin in the kingdom of Ravan, they still had a lot of wealth. They had so many temples built, which were later looted by the Muslims. How wealthy they were! You couldn’t become as wealthy as they were through any of today’s studies. Therefore, look what human beings can become through this study! You become wealthy from poor. Look how poor at present Bharat is! Those who are called wealthy have no time. People have so much arrogance about their wealth and position.
You must finish your arrogance here. Each of us is a soul, and a soul has no money or diamonds or jewels etc. A soul has nothing. The Father says: Sweet children, forget your body and all your bodily relations. When a soul leaves his body, his wealth etc. is all over for him. Then, when that soul starts to study afresh and earns an income, he can become wealthy. If he has performed charity and made donations, he would take birth in a wealthy home. It is said: You receive the fruit of past action. If you built a college or dharmashala etc., and gave the donation of knowledge, you would receive the fruit of that. However, that is only for a temporary period. You give donations and perform charity here. You don’t do this in the golden age. There are only good actions in the golden age, because that is the inheritance of the present time. None of your actions would be sinful there because Ravan doesn’t exist there. It is when you start to indulge in vice that your actions become vicious. It is because of vice that you perform sinful actions. No sinful actions are performed in heaven. Everything depends on your actions. This Maya, Ravan, makes you develop devilish traits. Then the Father comes and makes you full of all virtues. There is then a war between those who belong to the clan of Rama and those who belong to the clan of Ravan. You are the children of Rama. So many good children are defeated by Maya. Baba won’t mention any names. He still has hope for them. He has to uplift even those who are the most degraded. The Father has to uplift everyone in the world. Everyone in the kingdom of Ravan has reached the state of total degradation. Every day, the Father gives you ways to save yourself and save others. However, if you still fall, you become the most degraded of all. You are not then able to climb as high. That state of degradation would continue to bite them inside. Just as it is said, "Whatever you remember in your final moments...”, so, too, they would constantly remember their state of degradation. Therefore, the Father sits here and explains this to you children. Every cycle, you are the ones who listen to how the world cycle turns. Animals will not understand this. Only you listen to this and understand it. Human beings are human beings! Lakshmi and Narayan also have ears, eyes and a nose etc. After all, they are human beings. However, because they have divine virtues, they are called deities. You now know the cycle of how they become such deities and how they then fall. Those who continue to churn the ocean of knowledge will be able to imbibe this. Those who do not churn the ocean of knowledge are called buddhus. Those who give knowledge to others will continue to churn the ocean of knowledge and think about what they should explain on which topic. They keep hoping that, even if they do not understand today, they will understand in the future. To keep hoping means to be interested in doing service. You mustn’t become tired. Even if someone who had climbed high and then became degraded comes to you, you would still ask him with a lot of love to sit down, would you not? Or, would you tell him to go away? You would ask him about his welfare, where he has been for so many days and why he had not come, would you not? He would reply that he had been defeated by Maya. They do understand that this knowledge is very good. They do remember all of this. There is no question of victory or defeat in devotion. This knowledge has to be imbibed. You cannot become deities unless you become Brahmins. There are no physical brahmins among the Christians, Buddhists, Parsis etc. The children of those brahmins are brahmins. You now understand these things.
You know that you have to remember Alpha. It is by remembering Alpha that you receive a kingdom. When you meet someone, ask him to remember Alpha, Allah. Alpha is said to be the most elevated. They point up to Alpha. Alpha is absolutely straight (Sindhi language script). Alpha is also said to be 1. There is only the one God. All the rest are His children. The Father is called Alpha; He gives you knowledge. He also makes you His children. Therefore, you children should have so much happiness! Baba is serving us so much! He is making us into the masters of the world. However, He, Himself, doesn’t enter that pure world. No one invites Him into the pure world. It is only those in the impure world that call out to Him. What would He do if He came into the pure world? He is called the Purifier. Therefore, it is His duty to change the old world into the pure world. The Father's name is Shiva and you children are called saligrams. Both He and you are worshipped. However, those who worship them do not know whom they are worshipping. They have simply created that system of worshipping. They build first-class palaces etc. of diamonds and jewels to the goddesses and worship them. They simply make oval images of clay to worship and then break themafterwards: it doesn’t take any effort to make them. It takes effort to make statues of the goddesses; worshipping them takes no effort at all. Everything is received free. The stones rub against each other in the water and become smooth and round. They become completely egg shaped. It is even said that souls are egg shaped and reside in the brahm element, and that is why that abode is called Brahmand (egg shaped). You become the masters of Brahmand and of the world as well. So, first of all, you have to explain about the one Father. Everyone calls Shiva ‘Baba’ and remembers Him. Secondly, even Brahma is called Baba. Since he is the Father of the People (Prajapita), he is the father of all the people. He is also their great- great-grandfather. You children now have all of this knowledge. Many people speak of Prajapita Brahma but none of them knows him accurately. Whose child is Brahma? You would say that he is the child of the Supreme Father, the Supreme Soul. Shiv Baba has adopted him and so he has to be a bodily being. All are the children of God. Then, when a body is received, it is said to be an adoption by Prajapita Brahma. It is not the other adoption. Has the Supreme Father, the Supreme Soul, adopted you souls? No, it is you (bodily beings) that are adopted. You are now Brahma Kumars and Brahma Kumaris. Shiv Baba doesn’t adopt anyone. All souls are eternal and imperishable. All souls receive their own bodies and their own parts which they have to perform. This part is an eternal and imperishable part which has continued from time immemorial. There can be no beginning or end to it. 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.
Blessing: May you move forward at a fast speed on the basis of powerful remembrance and service and thereby become a conqueror of Maya.
The basis of Brahmin life is remembrance and service. When the basis of both of these is powerful, you will continue to move forward at a fast speed. If there is a lot of service but remembrance is weak or if remembrance is very good but you are weak in service, there cannot then be a fast speed. There has to be a fast speed in both remembrance and service. When both remembrance and altruistic service take place simultaneously, it is then easy to become a conqueror of Maya. Victory should be visible in every action, before that action finishes.
Slogan: Move along while considering this world to be an alokik game and adverse situations to be alokik toys.
