The Inner Awakening Wave

Our beliefs either put us to sleep or cause us to remain awake. Even if are awake on a physical level, when we are asleep internally, without even realizing most of the time; we don't see others, situations and the world as a whole in their true light. We see, perceive and interpret reality incorrectly, which causes us pain. We perceive any sort of pain on the mental or emotional level to be normal and think that others and circumstances are responsible for the pain. All this, because of the incorrect beliefs that we carry inside us, the most important one being that we are physical bodies and not spiritual energies or souls. Only when the subtle pain becomes intolerable, do we look for a remedy for the same, or think we have to do something about it. Most of us go through life asleep and hence in pain. An inner awakening is one in which we realize the incorrect beliefs and are not scared to challenge them. Once we do that, our pain starts receding. We then very naturally look to wake up others, so that they are relieved from their pain.

The present time in the history of humanity is such that while the sleep of some souls is getting more and more sound and pain increases in the world, on the other hand, an inner awakening wave is taking many souls in its tide as more and more souls are waking up from their deep slumber and waking up others. This is the time when late night and early morning exist side by side. It is the same time, but late night for most and early morning, a time of getting up, for a few. This is happening due to a consciousness shift or shifting of beliefs inside many through spiritual knowledge. Such souls, whose number keeps increasing everyday, are experiencing more and more happiness in their lives. Both these groups of souls have similar circumstances and people in their life but the shifting or correction of beliefs inside the second group is causing souls in the group to remain stable amidst these circumstances, free from spiritual pain, depending on how much the shift is.

When you remove the weaknesses within you, you will never become an obstacle for your own or others’ progress.

Checking:Check if anyone considers you an obstacle in any task. If so check if this is because of your own weakness. Also check if there is any weakness within you that is stopping your own progress.

Practice: Each day take a thought, “ I am the one who helps others to progress. I have no weakness that stops or retards the progress of others. When you practice in this way, you will find yourself free from the weakness.

Negative Control And Domination In Relationships

In a lot many of the different types of relationships we find ourselves in, may they be our personal relationships or at the workplace, we sometimes feel ourselves to be in a position where we feel we are being dominated and controlled negatively by the opposite person. A very common example of the above negative energy, in personal and non-personal relationships, is when someone gets angry with you and manages to make you react and get upset, they manage to dominate you. Over a period of time they start realizing that they possess an invisible and powerful remote control, using which, whenever they want to control you, what they should do is to get angry with you and that way they will achieve the desired control. Their anger becomes a remote control. When you react you are allowing this control or allowing the other's remote control to work. It is you that chooses to allow yourself to be influenced and dominated. It is important for us to realize that we can choose and take the decision to allow ourselves to be controlled and dominated, or we can choose to express what we feel without being affected by the reaction of the other and still maintaining our love, respect and good wishes for the other.

Let us not allow ourselves to be dominated and influenced by entities external to us which includes objects and people or we will lose energy. Each moment we allow another person's remote control to work successfully or we allow an object to control and dominate our emotional state, we weaken internally. We become like a puppet in the other person's hands. A puppet is never powerful because it does not act on its own but is controlled by someone else. We need to prevent that, if we want to conserve our energy and remain spiritually strong. Meditation and spiritual knowledge both increase our spiritual strength and also increase our self esteem or self respect over a period of time. Both these increases help us remain in self control and not only disallow the other's remote control to work but also become assertive (not aggressive) and take a stand when required.

Use the weapon of knowledge instead of using anger, which is the weapon of ignorance.

Checking:When something goes wrong check if you think first and act in the situation or just react immediately and repent later. Also check the reason why you generally seem to be getting angry.

Practice: Once you have discovered the general cause of your anger, practice each day in such a way that you can accept things as they are. When you understand why things are happening the way they do, you can stop yourself from using anger as a weapon.

God And I - The Relationship We Share (Part 6)

Keep in mind some form of remembrance of God once you start performing actions like getting ready in the morning, cooking food, driving to work, taking a walk in the evening and going off to sleep. God is not present everywhere but His remembrance is present in every human being’s heart and that is why we think He is everywhere. We say – God, we love you and we experience His warmth and love immediately at that time. The complete world’s more than 7 billion population can do this at one time and God can respond to each one’s loveful thought with love in return. This is God’s power and because of this power, we thought that God is in each and every molecule of the world.

If God was actually present in the hearts of 7 billion people, they would all be happy and there would be no spiritual ignorance in the world. Also people would never give any sorrow to each other and there would be no impurity in the world. If God was present in every molecule of nature, there would be no natural calamities like earthquakes, floods and droughts in the world which give sorrow to everyone. Also, the complete animal and plant life would be in order which is not the case. Are ecological and climatic disturbances which are threatening the safety of human beings a sign that God is present everywhere? Wherever we see, negativity in the world at all levels is increasing, human values and qualities are reducing. All show that God is not actually present everywhere, but His remembrance still exists in human hearts, but not equally in each one’s heart, because of which there is peacelessness and sorrow in the world. Our remembrance of God will bring peace, love and happiness back in the world and that is why this remembrance is a lifeline for the world.

Become an embodiment of solutions by discovering the cause of waste thoughts.

Checking:Throughout the day, when faced with any problems check if you are having waste thoughts. Also check the cause of the waste thoughts. Usually the cause would be either because you see your own weakness or because you perceive the negativity in either another person or situation.

Practice: Instead of trying to avoid waste thoughts, make the practice of transforming the thoughts after you have discovered the cause. In this way you will be able to find solutions to all situations.

God And I - The Relationship We Share (Part 5)

A companionship with God is incomplete without starting the day with His pure remembrance in your heart and that means experiencing one’s true self and the form of the true self, which is the same as God’s form. Only then can we experience God closely. At the Brahma Kumaris we say realize yourself as a soul or a pure being of light and then connect with the Supreme Being of spiritual light or God. This is called Rajyoga meditation. This is the first connection of the morning. At the Brahma Kumaris, we perform this mental exercise early in the morning, because this is the time when nature is extremely pure and silent. Also at that time a large number, in fact most people are asleep. Because of this, the overall spiritual atmosphere is pure, with very little negative activity in the form of thoughts, words and actions full of lust, anger, greed, ego and attachment. These are the five primary vices which influence the spiritual atmosphere of the world negatively.

As a newcomer to the Brahma Kumaris, for some, the early morning meditation is the most beautiful experience which they went through over here. They also share their life changing experience with their friends and family members, of how they connect with God, to make them aware as to how one can, with the power of thought, experience a spiritual union with God in His home, the soul world. So, something which has drawn thousands of people to the Brahma Kumaris is the technique of Rajyoga meditation. It is called Rajyoga because it is a simple union with the Highest being that exists – God. It does not involve any particular posture or difficult physical exercises and is an exercise of the mind and can be done by anyone, whether old or young.

You receive respect from others when you inspire them with your actions.

Checking:Check if you are using words like, ‘no one listens to me when I want them to do things or no one cares for me or my words…’ Also check if your actions are such that they inspire others.

Practice: In all that you do, let there be the awareness that you are the one who has to teach others through your actions. When you continue to inspire others in this way you will get their respect.

So keep your minds and hearts open to new and truthful knowledge of the world’s past, present and future and the world Father and Mother, whom we call God.

Perform every action after careful consideration of the past experience, present situation and the future consequence and you will be successful.

Checking:At the end of each day, in all the situations that you have faced and in all the decisions you have taken check if there were any feelings of regret, repentance or any other waste thoughts. When the action is performed after careful consideration, there will be no waste thoughts.

Practice: Before you make every major decision, make sure you do it after careful consideration. Let there be the practice of spending time and thoughts before the action than wasting time and thoughts by regretting after the action has already been performed.

God And I - The Relationship We Share (Part 3)

A beautiful relationship with God does not mean that we stop having beautiful relationships with everyone else because the love experienced from God is used to give to others without which life would be without any meaning. People who have tried to connect to God alone and forgot the beautiful people in their lives which make life a joyful journey did not reach the destination of peace, love and joy successfully. A loner or someone who disconnects with people will never feel as satisfied as one who connects with people and their specialties. Love God a lot but love others too. In fact, it is God’s love which will fill our relationships with others full of love. This is the triangle of spirituality. Take from God and give to others and also love others to bring them closer to God. This is the objective of true spirituality. Spirituality does not mean only remembering God to purify oneself but to serve others with that pure love which you receive from God. Service, as stated in all religions, is one of the primary objectives of a beautiful spiritual life and service is nothing but purifying others with the help of a love filled connection with God.

Loving God with a pure heart is another aspect of spirituality. Remember it’s the humble and the sweet who will win God’s love and closeness. The egoistic and the critical lose God’s love and as a result are not able to fill their relationships with that love. A loveful bond with God means being happy in His company and sharing that happiness with your eyes, face and your words and actions with others. A remembrance of God at the Brahma Kumaris in meditation is often done in a gathering to share the vibrations of peace, love and joy with others sitting with you through your eyes or vision. That is why we at the Brahma Kumaris meditate with open eyes. So taking and giving go side by side, remembrance of God and serving others go side by side.

To be truly truthful is to reveal the truth at the right time and the right place.

Checking:When you are speaking the truth check if anyone is hurt or upset. also check if you are yourself feeling comfortable or not while speaking about it. When the truth is told in the right way, it does not cause sorrow to anyone.

Practice: When you feel that someone needs to be told the truth, make the practice of asking yourself first, ‘is it the right time and the right place for this to be told or could there be a better time and place than this.’ Your action should be based on this answer.

God And I - The Relationship We Share (Part 2)

Experiencing God with you while going to your office, experiencing Him while having a meal, sleeping in His lap are some of our common experiences at the Brahma Kumaris. Also, talking to Him when faced with a challenge, holding his hand when in trouble and taking support are some more experiences. These are the same experiences which you might also have gone through even if you are not attached to a particular spiritual organization. But the one important thing that we would like to share with you is that even we, in our journey with the Brahma Kumaris, define being with God in a different way as we spend more and more time with Him. So say 5-6 years ago, we used the same words – we love God and enjoy being with Him throughout the day, but the same words mean a lot more now than what they meant 5-6 years ago. Today we experience God much closely than we did, say a few years ago. God keeps revealing Himself more and more as we become cleaner and purer even at the most subtle level of the consciousness.

So it’s the same God and it’s the same me but our consciousness has changed in say 5 years because of which God is inspired to fill us more and more with His divine experiences. Also, a walk with God with His hand in our hand today means something much more beautiful than what it meant at that time. Also don’t forget the same experience will be much more deeper after the next 3-4 years. So God does not change but because He reveals different characteristics of His personality from time to time we grow closer and closer to Him. Also, a companionship with God at all levels of thought, word and action takes a newer meaning everyday. Based on this type of spiritual life which keeps becoming more and more beautiful everyday, we welcome you to the centers of the Brahma Kumaris to learn meditation. Also, we welcome you to join us in these life changing experiences of seeing God as closely as what you might ever be able to imagine.

When you renounce desire, you can achieve your fortune.

Checking:At the end of each day, check if through out the day you had experienced unhappiness. Also check if your unhappiness is because of the desire that you have. Where there is desire there is unhappiness.

Practice: In order to enjoy what’s there in your fortune, each day make the practice firm, ‘I get what is right for me according to my fortune. I have no desire because desire only gives me sorrow.’

God And I - The Relationship We Share (Part 1)

A beautiful lesson which we learn at the Brahma Kumaris is to keep God with us in every action throughout the day. The type of remembrance varies according to the action we are performing and also changes depending on the setting we are in, like whom we are talking to, whether we are silent or our mind is busy in something. Also whether the action we are performing at that time is something we have to give a lot of mental attention to like driving a car or is it an action like taking a walk in the park which involves lesser mental attention. The energies of our mind and intellect are used in remembrance. We have to keep that in mind and decide how we will keep God as a companion with us at every moment. There are various different methods of keeping a positive consciousness through the direct or indirect remembrance of God. They say God resides in clean temples only – that means if our mind is absolutely clean, we can experience God extremely closely. There are some people in the world for whom God is an extremely close companion who will tell them everything that is required to experience success in every sphere of life. They are so close enough to God that they can have a sweet conversation with God anytime in which He can give clear and absolutely true instructions for the required moment based on the scenes which He can see from above. Sometimes, we are completely unaware of these scenes, since they are hidden from our physical eyes.

Very often we are so busy in performing actions, that our inner mental connection with God is cut off and we do not realize it. What is the right type of positive mindset to experience a pure connection with God, our spiritual Father and Mother, throughout the day, in different actions, is something that God has shared with us at the Brahma Kumaris. This has made us rich with His power filled company. Our every action needs to be filled with the love filled company of the Highest of Highest and the most beautiful being that exists - God.

The one who has the consciousness of being the ruler of his own thoughts is the one who is fortunate.

Checking:When others say anything negative to you, check if you are being influenced by their thoughts, which make you think negative too or if you are able to guide your thoughts as you wish.

Practice: Each day begin your day with the practice, “I am the ruler of my thoughts and it is me who is in control of my thoughts and no one else.” Also remind yourself of this thought and you can see the picture of your fortune in the mirror of your life.
