22/11/17 Morning Murli Om Shanti BapDada Madhuban
“Sweet children, the Father’s direction is: Spin the discus of self-realisation and connect your intellects in yoga to the Father. By doing this, your sins will be absolved and your burden of sins will be removed from your head.”
What are the specialities of this most elevated confluence age?
- Only this confluence age is a beneficial age. It is in this age that the real meeting, which is also called the Kumbha Mela, the meeting of souls with the Supreme Soul, takes place. 2. It is only at this time that you become true Brahmins. 3. At this confluence age, you go from the land of sorrow to the land of happiness; you become liberated from sorrow. 4. At this time you receive the full knowledge of the beginning, the middle and the end of the world from the Father, the Ocean of Knowledge. The Father gives you new knowledge for the new world. 5. You become beautiful from ugly.
Take us away from this world of sin to a place of rest and comfort.
You sweetest children heard the song, and it is in the intellects of you children that the iron age truly is the world of sin. At this time everyone continues to commit sin. The Father comes every cycle and grants you liberation and salvation. The Purifier Father comes when the impure world has to be made pure. He comes and makes you children equal to Himself. Which knowledge does the Father have? He has the knowledge of the whole cycle. You children also know this world cycle. The Father has the knowledge of how this whole cycle turns and that is why He is called the Ocean of Knowledge. He alone is the Purifier. By understanding this cycle and by becoming spinners of the discus of self-realisation, you once again become the kings and queens of heaven, rulers of the globe. Therefore, your intellects should be spinning this discus throughout the whole day so that your sins can be absolved. Then, in the golden age, you won’t spin this discus. There, the self, that is, souls, do not have the knowledge of the world cycle. Neither in the golden age nor in the iron age do souls have it. Only at the confluence age do you receive this knowledge. The confluence age is praised a lot. They have a kumbha mela. In fact, it is the mela (meeting) of the Ocean of Knowledge and the rivers, that is, it is the meeting of the Supreme Soul with souls. That kumbha mela belongs to the path of devotion. This meeting of souls with the Supreme Soul only takes place at this beautiful, beneficial confluence age when you become liberated from sorrow and go into happiness. This is why the Father is called the Remover of Sorrow and the Bestower of Happiness. Happiness lasts for half the cycle and sorrow lasts for half the cycle. Day and night are half and half. Buildings too are new and old. There is happiness in a new home and sorrow in an old home. The world too is new and old. There is happiness for half the cycle and then sorrow begins in the middle. After sorrow, there is happiness again. How does the land of sorrow become the land of happiness? Who makes it that? No one in the whole world knows this. Human beings are in total darkness. They have given the golden age a long duration. If the duration of the golden age were that long, there would be so many people there! Not a single person can go back home. Everyone has to get together here. Only when the Father comes and shows you the way home can you go back. The Father comes at the confluence age and shows all of these many souls the way home. You know that, having gone around the cycle of 84 births, you have now come here. How many births you have taken in the golden and silver ages and who rules for how many years is all in your intellects. In the golden age you are 16 celestial degrees full. Then, in the silver age, you are 14 degrees and it is then the stage of descent. At this time there is a lot of sorrow. There is only sorrow in the old world. The golden age is called the new world and the iron age is called the old world. It is now the confluence. The old world is now to be destroyed. The Father is creating the new world. You will leave the old world and then go and sit in the new home. You say that you are making effort to go to the new home so that you can claim a high status in the new world. The Father says: Simply remember Me alone. He doesn’t give you any other difficulty. You should somehow make time and obey His instructions. However, Maya is such that she doesn’t allow you to obey them. She doesn’t allow you to connect your intellects in yoga to the Father. You children made effort in the previous cycle too and gained victory over Maya, Ravan, and that was how the golden age was established. To the extent that someone becomes a helper, accordingly, he or she receives a prize. Therefore, you children also have to give this knowledge to your friends and relatives. The Father’s directions are: Remember Me! Each of you has a burden of sin of half the cycle on your head and there is no way to burn it other than by having remembrance. People say that the Rivers Ganges and Jamuna are the Purifiers and they believe that they will be made pure by them. However, how can sins be cut away with water? This is the impure world and that is why everyone calls out: O Purifier, come and establish the golden age! No one, apart from the Father, can establish it. Therefore, this is new knowledge for the new world. It is only the one Father who gives it. Krishna didn’t give knowledge. Krishna cannot be called the Purifier. Only the Supreme Father, the Supreme Soul, is the Purifier and He is beyond rebirth. You know that the land of Krishna is also called the land of Vishnu. The kingdom of Krishna is separate from the kingdom of Radhe, and then the two of them become engaged. Radhe and Krishna were not sister and brother. Brother and sister would not get married to one another. These things now continue to bubble in your intellects. Previously, you didn’t know this. You now know that it is Radhe and Krishna who become Lakshmi and Narayan, the empress and emperor of heaven. Krishna and Radhe are remembered as the prince and princess. Their parents don’t have such a high status. Why is that? Because their parents studied less. The names of Radhe and Krishna are so well known, but it is as though their parents’ names are not even mentioned. In fact, the names of those who gave birth to them should be very well known, but no! Radhe and Krishna are the highest of all. There is no one higher than them. Radhe and Krishna claim the first number and they become the first emperor and empress. Although they take birth through their parents, it is their names that are higher. This has to be made to sit very clearly in your intellects. While you are sitting here, continue to spin the discus, of self-realisation. By spinning this discus your sins are burnt away, that is, you cut off Ravan’s head. There is the cycle of the golden, silver, copper and iron ages. At first we were deities and then we became warriors, merchants and shudras. We have now once again become Brahmins. We will then become deities. Baba has explained a different meaning for “Om” and a different meaning for “Hum so”. In the scriptures, they have given the same meaning to both. They believe that “Om” means: “I, the soul, am the Supreme Soul and the Supreme Soul is the soul.” That is wrong. The Father explains: “Om” means I am a soul, a child of the Supreme Father, the Supreme Soul. “I am God” is not the meaning of “Om”. I, the soul, am incorporeal and my Father is also incorporeal. The father of a corporeal body is corporeal. I am a child of the Supreme Soul, and so I definitely need the kingdom of heaven. The Father has come to give us the inheritance of heaven. After half the cycle, Ravan curses you and you therefore become unhappy and tamopradhan. Then, the Father comes and gives you a blessing to make you happy. He doesn’t say, “May you have a long life,” but He does say, “Remember Me and all of your sins of many births, including those of this birth, will be burnt away.” This is called the fire of yoga. In Ravan’s kingdom, everyone definitely has to become impure. It is souls that become impure and pure. God is ever pure and He makes everyone pure. It is Ravan who makes you impure. There are no vices in the golden age. That is the completely viceless world and this is why people go in front of the deity idols and sing: You are full of all virtues. They don’t sing this praise in front of Shiva. The deities who were pure then became impure. This is a play. The Father creates the land of happiness. Shiva is called the Father. Saligrams are separate. When they create a sacrificial fire of Rudra, they make one big lingam. All the rest are small saligrams. We souls take 84 births. You wouldn’t say that those of other religions take 84 births. How many births would those of the Sikh religion take in 500 years? How many births do we take? The Father explains this. The topknot of Brahmins is very well known. Real Brahmins exist at the confluence age. This is the beneficial age. It is here that all of you are benefited. Ravan brings a loss and the Father comes and benefits you. Therefore, you should follow the Father’s directions and bring benefit. Shrimat are the versions of God Shiva. Shiv Baba doesn’t take birth; He just enters someone else’s body. Only if He also took sustenance could you say He takes birth. He never takes any sustenance. He says: Simply follow My shrimat and become the masters of heaven. I have no desire to become that. I am Abhogta (beyond experience of the senses). Therefore, you souls should understand that Baba is explaining to you. It is the soul that understands. It is the soul that becomes a barrister or an engine er: I am so-and-so. The soul said: I was a deity and after eight births, I became a warrior. Then, I took 12 births and, after that, I continued to become impure. The Father says: Children, may you be soul conscious! These matters have to be understood. The soul says: When I was in the golden age, I was a great soul. Then, in the iron age, I became a greatly sinful soul. The greatest of all great souls is the one Supreme Soul who is ever pure. Here, human beings don’t remain ever pure. It is only in the land of happiness that they always remain pure. Even in the silver age, there are fewer degrees. It is now our stage of ascent and we are becoming the masters of heaven. Then, when we go into the silver age, there will be two degrees fewer. Then, in the copper age, when there is the eclipse of the five vices, we continue to become ugly. The Father says: Now, donate those five vices and the eclipse will be removed and you will become golden-aged, perfect deities. First of all, let go of body consciousness. Donate the vice of lust. At the end, you have to become destroyers of attachment. You souls have now remembered that you truly have experienced 84 births. Ravan cursed you in the copper age and that is why everyone is unhappy. Would the kings and queens of the copper age not fall ill? That too is sorrow, is it not? This is the world of sorrow. The golden age is the land of happiness. Therefore, you should obey God’s shrimat. Those who don’t obey the directions of the unlimited Father are called greatly unworthy souls. What inheritance would unworthy children receive from the Father? Worthy children claim a good inheritance. They become pure themselves and enable others to become pure. The unlimited Father is teaching you souls: O souls, are you listening with your ears? You say: Yes Baba. I will follow Your shrimat and definitely become elevated. Since God is the Highest on High, He would definitely also give you the highest-on-high status, would He not? He gives you the inheritance of heaven for half the cycle. You receive a limited inheritance from a worldly father; that is temporary happiness. In the iron age, happiness is like the droppings of a crow and that is why sannyasis leave their homes. They don’t believe in the household religion. There is the household religion in the golden age. You know that, through this study, you go to the land of Vishnu and that the Supreme Father, the Supreme Soul, is teaching us for that. Devotees don’t know who God is, what His task is or how He makes impure ones pure. You are now becoming pure. People of the world remember that Purifier Father. You are now standing at the confluence age. All the rest are in the iron age. Those people believe that the iron age is still in its infancy. You know that the iron age is now about to be destroyed. You now have to go to the golden age. The Father has reminded you: I give you the inheritance every cycle. Therefore, you should claim your full inheritance. The Father doesn’t tell you to just sit here. You may live at home, but simply continue to spin the discus of self-realisation and become destroyers of attachment. Belong to one Shiv Baba and none other. We know that we are now forging a new relationship, and so there shouldn’t be any attachment to the old ones. Have attachment to the new world and the new kingdom. Death is now just over your heads. Preparations for that continue to be made. There is no untimely death in the golden age. When it is time, you shed your old skins (bodies) and take other new ones. 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) Spin the discus of self-realisation and become a complete destroyer of attachment. Death is just over your head. Therefore, remove your attachment from everyone.
2) In order to claim your inheritance from the Father, follow shrimat fully. Be soul conscious and become a worthy child.
May you be an intense effort-maker and be constantly ever ready by considering every moment to be the final moment!
The children who are intense effort-makers remain ever ready by considering every moment to be the final moment. They never think that there is still some time left for destruction to take place and that they will be ready by then. Instead of looking at those final moments, think that there is no guarantee about your final moment and you will then remain ever ready. Let your stage remain constantly beyond. Be detached from everyone and loving to the Father: a destroyer of attachment. Be constantly free from attachment, free from sinful thoughts and free from waste thoughts. When there is no waste, you will then be said to be ever ready.
In order to pass with honours in delicate times, increase your power to adjust.
