„All the sanskaras are there in a queue, waiting to emerge at the “right time.” Notice that this does not depend on anyone’s will power. These sanskaras emerge automatically…The outside scenes give us the impression of “I am making it happen,” but it is a synchronicity of the outside with the inside. It is a unison movement of the inside with the outside, so there is neither really outside nor inside. It is One….” – Comments on SM 2-1-13
Dear Brother, From this comment on todays murli I understand that: each experience that I experience is in the drama already, each thought is in the drama already, everything that I’ve ever done or said is in the drama already, that there’s nothing like will power, then on one hand its very good because I understand that I can’t really blame anyone for anything, the actors are compelled to play their part, nothing can then be labelled good or bad since its just a role, on the other hand what happens to the motivation to do better, respond better from a heightened state of awareness, one could say its all drama and wouldn’t it then have the potential of making one lazy and careless because the will really doesn’t matter resulting in status quo – „I get angry and impatient that’s my part in the drama, so be it” – a shift from such a thinking depends on the drama, but I’m doing this also because of the drama – if we are puppets in the hands of drama where’s the scope for evolving to a higher state of consciousness. Could you please help?”
This has been a recurrent question, but I have a somewhat distinct answer each time… 🙂
First, do you realize that „I” and „mine” are illusions, Maya?
BapDada mentions that all the time. „Change I and mine for my Baba,” He says.
Therefore, it surprises „me” that such a thing as being a „puppet of destiny” exists. It is all ego. „You” think that „you” are doing things because „you” are not aware that there is a „role” running through „you.” The soul is supposed to observe that. Accept the role. Forget the past.
That is to be a detached observer. Until we do not perceive the „illusion” of having a personality we cannot observe the role unfolding as if „I” was at awe watching a movie. „I” will react because my sense of „I” will feel affected by what is happening. The movie. „I” may exist as an „observer,” a „perceiver” but not as a „personality.”
Our consciousness dictates that we are separated beings. At the soul level, we are „points of light,” but there is no meaning on being a point of light unless there is a „plot” going. That is the movie. Our capacity to observe was going on, is part of the movie, our reactions are part of the movie, everything that „I” understand is part of the movie. The movie will play according to my capacity, in other words; if you are a BK soul, it is only because it is in your role according to your capacity. Effort making is not something that we „do” but something that happens and there is something inside „you” to „drive” you. Do you feel that? 🙂
That Drama is a point, a seed; which is expanding like a tree with many branches through different „actors” as different roles. We perceive „my role,” but we do not perceive the „seed” the Drama.
You are a leaf floating on a river. The Drama is the river. Ego perceives separation: leaf and river are different. That is the problem, because that leaf exists as long as it floats on that river. Ego wants to fight against the current. That is suffering. Those are the vices. Float. The destination is already made. Empty the sense of self. This is what is known as being ONE with the river; which is the same idea as being ONE with the ONE, God. Combined, not 2 separated entities, but combined.
The effort is to empty the self. How is laziness related with this? Empty.
Paradoxically that is how we become „One” by being empty.
„i get angry, that is my part.” If you realized anger, it could go away at that moment; but because we do not realize it, it remains, we are „unconscious.” Sure, if it is your part to realize it, you will, because you have the capacity. If it is your part to be awaken. You will.
What effort needs to be made? To be empty. How do you make that effort? By being empty.
Then, what is the effort? 🙂
You are not different from the Drama. You are part of it, but in emptiness, you are the Drama. It all depends on your consciousness. Greater awareness, greater awakening, unlimited consciousness.
