“The Father sits here and explains about devotion and knowledge”. Murli: 1/1/2016
Spiritual Children: Have you understood how there cannot be true fulfillment through devotion and that it is only through ‘this knowledge’ that ordinary human beings are made into deities?”
You may be asking what is meant by knowledge in this context and how does it differ from devotion? What kind of knowledge comes from the Father/Mother of all and is infused with the transformational magic of changing ordinary human beings into deities. The Beloved Parent/Friend gives us ordinary humans, caught in the web of thinking we are the roles we play, the recognition of the Self. The Beloved finds us and helps us to recognize the One, as He/She is. The Beloved also gives the knowledge of the beginning, middle and end of the world cycle.
Again, you may be asking how can I recognize the One who comes to create the new world through this knowledge? The Father, Teacher, and Guide comes with a gift to assist us to connect with Him/Her in the Supreme Abode, the abode of all souls, the abode of silence. This gift comes in the form of Meditation…Raja Yoga Meditation.
As we connect with the One and get on this One’s incorporeal wavelength, we begin the process of purification of the karmas of our past and present and imbibe that One’s virtues and characteristics. Nice tradeoff!!!
Presetly we are living in the “kingdom of Maya” where we are all sufferring from anger, lust, greed, ego, and attachment. The One comes from on high, out of mercy and love, to teach us and restore our original purity. In essence, the incorporeal Beloved descends to establish a new world of purity, peace, and happiness through the power of Raja Yoga (union with the One).
“Although Maya is very powerful, there is hope. Even those who have become completly degraded have to be uplifted. ” (murli)
Since the Beloved is incognito, the human souls who are destined to help in the establishment of the new world, reveal the One to others and share the knowledge they have been given. Brahma (who becomes Narayan, a deity, in his next life) and Saraswati ( becomes the deity Lakshmi, in her next life) have the distinction of being the first and best students of the One. They are the roots and trunk of the human world tree. Saraswati, in this life, is also called Mamma. “She would tell everybody that we are just instruments of God and that One is getting the things done through us. So, we should remain detached observers. She was an embodiment of sweetness, humility, truth, maturity, seriousness, tolerance, and cheerfulness. Her presence transformed the vicious attitude and sufferings of others. She also had a natural disinterest towards wordly affairs and would tell everyone to live as though it were their last moment! She would also say that an ‘effort-maker’ is one who understands the lessons of the Highest on High and translates them into practical life immediately.” from Mateshwari Jagadamba Saraswati by B.K. Surendran, from Bangalore.
“The Goddess Lakshmi has a nose, ears, and a mouth, etc. because she is also a human being. However she has divine virtues and this is why she is called a deity (goddess).
How did she become such a beautiful deity?
It is only by remembering Alpha (the One) that one becomes a god-like deity from a human being.
Alpha is said to be the highest. People point upwards with their finger to indicate Alpha. Alpha is also said to be One.
There is just one God and all the rest are children.
This One gives you knowledge and makes you His children…It is of Him that it is said: ‘Even if you turned a whole ocean into ink, a forest into pens, and the earth into paper, this knowledge would not run out.’
Hand over all your burdens and bondages to the Father, and become Light.” (murli)
It is possible that you will understand some of this knowledge. Some of you will instantly have faith, whereas others won’t.
Hope is kept for everyone. If not now, then you will definitely understand in the future.
One has to keep hoping for the souls of the world. To keep hope in them means to have an interest in serving them.
“This knowledge and divine virtues have to be imbibed.” (murli)
