20/12/16 Morning Murli Om Shanti BapDada Madhuban
Sweet children, anger is a very big thorn. Many receive sorrow through it and you must, therefore, remove that thorn and become a true flower.
What reassurance does the Father give the children who are becoming flowers from thorns?
Children, the obstacles that Maya even now causes while you are becoming flowers from thorns will one day come to an end and all of you will go to heaven. Those iron-aged thorns will end. The Father has put you in the confluence-aged pot. Although Maya makes you wilt, the seed of knowledge is imperishable. This seed can never be destroyed.
Neither will He be separated from us nor will there be sorrow.
Shiv Baba explains the deep secrets of knowledge to you sweetest beloved, long-lost and now- found, spiritual children through the body of Brahma. Firstly, you children heard in the song: Baba, we will sacrifice ourselves to You, no matter how many assaults we have to tolerate. Why are there assaults? Because human beings don’t receive poison (vice). You children know that, previously, you neither knew the soul nor the Supreme Soul; you neither knew yourself nor the Father. Therefore, it was as though you had animal intellects. In worldly terms, you know yourself and your father. Human beings of this time neither know themselves nor the Father from beyond this world at all. They say that God doesn’t have a name, form, land or time. Therefore, none of those things would be there for souls either. Those people don’t know the soul at all. They say that the soul is the Supreme Soul. You now know. They simply say for the sake of it that there is the soul and the being, that the soul is imperishable and the being is perishable. What is a soul? What is his form and colour? They know that his name is soul, but no one can explain what he is like, what he does, what type of part he plays or for how long he plays his part. No one can give the knowledge of a soul. You now know that a soul is a tiny star. An imperishable part of 84 births is recorded in a soul. The Shankaracharya soul is also playing his own part. No one even knows how a soul becomes satopradhan and how he then goes through the stages of sato, rajo and tamo. They simply say that a wonderful star sparkles in the centre of the forehead. They don’t know anything else. Not to know the soul means not to know God. At this time, this is a forest of thorns where everyone is a thorn. They neither know the Creator, the Supreme Father, the Supreme Soul, nor the beginning, the middle and the end of creation. You children know the soul and the Supreme Soul, but that too is numberwise according to the effort you make. Many of you children don’t know this accurately. Because of being body conscious, you are unable to imbibe fully; it is numberwise. Some of you ask: Baba, why is it like this? Baba says: Children, a kingdom is being established. All types are definitely needed for that. Those who have stone intellects would attain the lowest status of all. If you know something yourself you would also explain to others. You say that you will begin to explain as you make further progress. However, there have to be such ones, for only then can there be those who receive a low status. There is so much difference between a king and a subject! Here, both kings and subjects experience sorrow. In the golden age, neither kings nor subjects experience sorrow, but there is a difference in their status. Because of not imbibing fully, you are unable to explain to anyone. Then, one thorn or another will continue to prick you: sometimes that of greed and sometimes that of attachment. The evil spirits will continue to interfere. This definitely has to happen. You are Prajapita Brahma Kumars and Kumaris. Who is the Father of Prajapita? Shiv Baba. However, Shiva doesn’t have a father. This Brahma, Vishnu and Shankar are also the creation of Shiva. So, everyone is a soul. The Supreme Father, the Supreme Soul, is only One. You can never receive the inheritance of liberation or salvation from Brahma, Vishnu or Shankar, or from Lakshmi and Narayan or from any human being. Human beings neither know the soul nor the Supreme Soul accurately. Only the Supreme Father, the Supreme Soul, can enable you to have realisation of the soul. Salvation is received through knowledge. Only the one Father gives knowledge. Some children do a lot of physical service for the yagya. You receive marks through that subject too. The Father is now telling you children the story of immortality and the story of the third eye. In fact, these are not stories. This is spiritual knowledge. Know the Father and yourself! They say that just as a bubble emerges from water and then merges back into it, in the same way, we are created from the brahm element, that we play our parts and then become merged in the brahm element or become the brahm element, that there is no other knowledge of the Creator or creation. Only the Father comes and explains knowledge. His name is Shiva. Some even call Him Rudra, and some call Him the Remover of Sins. They have given Him many names and increased the paraphernalia of worship. They have given Him as many names as the acts He has carried out and they have built many temples to Him. The Father says: This is now the world of thorns, the ocean of poison. Everyone is made to write that God is not omnipresent. The Father comes and makes Bharat into heaven, and so the whole world becomes heaven. This doesn’t enter anyone’s intellect. All the scriptures are of devotion. Each one has knowledge of his own work. A carpenter has knowledge of carpentry and a doctor has knowledge of medicine. This is spiritual knowledge which only the Supreme Soul comes and gives. Human beings don’t know who the One called God is. In the Gita they have mentioned the name of Shri Krishna. This is the main thing. They have falsified the mother and father (the Gita) and so all the other scriptures have become false. Just as they have mines of artificial (false) stones, so here, these are like false stones. Those with divine intellects live in the golden age, the land of divinity. This is hell. They call out, “O Purifier come!”, and so they must surely be impure. Both heaven and hell exist in Bharat. When someone dies, it is said that he has gone to heaven. It doesn’t enter their intellects that the golden age is heaven. God establishes heaven, not hell. No one knows when the kingdom of Ravan begins. Although they study many scriptures and remain celibate, they are still born through vice. Sages and sannyasis too make spiritual endeavour. They ask the Father for liberation because they don’t want to stay in the dirty world. The Father says: First of all, know the soul, how he goes through the cycle of birth and death, how alloy is mixed into real gold and how he plays his part of 84 births. You have the maximum parts. Those who were deities take the full 84 births. Where did Lakshmi and Narayan go after they ruled the kingdom? Those souls must definitely have taken birth. Where are they now? No one knows this. Some people believe that, at this time, Christ would be in his beggary part. You know very well that Lakshmi and Narayan, who were the masters of heaven, have to take rebirth and complete their 84 births. Not all souls take 84 births. Let your intellects imbibe this knowledge. Without staying in yoga, you cannot change from thorns into flowers. It is only by having yoga that your sins will be absolved and you will become satopradhan flowers. While you are here, there will definitely be some trace of thorns. Once you have become flowers, you won’t be able to stay here. The golden age is called the garden of flowers. You are now in the forest of thorns, that is, in the kingdom of Ravan. All here are thorns. Those who make many thorns into flowers are said to be the real fragrant flowers. There is a particular white flower known as the king of flowers. Even when it is placed on a table it continues to bloom and its fragrance continues to increase. No one is such a flower. Since there is a king flower, there also has to be a queen flower (raat ki rani – queen of the night). Roses, jasmine etc. are very good flowers. They have flower shows where everyone brings very good flowers. Those who bring very good flowers are given a prize. You too are creating a garden of flowers. People offer flowers to Shiva and those include ratan-jyot (very fragrant flower) and even uck flowers. Baba has explained that He plays the part of making you children into flowers. I know who is a rose, who is a jasmine, who is a ratan-jyot and who is an uck flower. The worst of all are uck flowers: they behave like thorns. Some are very sharp thorns. Anger too is a thorn which causes sorrow for many people. You children have now stepped aside from the world of thorns. You are at the confluence age; you are changing from thorns into flowers. Just as a gardener removes thorns from the stems of flowers and puts them in a separate pot, so too, Baba has separated you. You are at the confluence age. You are continuing to be repaired. In spite of that, Maya makes you into thorns. However, once you belong to Me, these obstacles of Maya will finish one day. Then the flowers that are planted in this pot will all go to heaven. All the iron-aged thorns will be burnt away. There are so few of you flowers! You have been placed in the confluence-aged pot. The seed has been sown. When storms of Maya come, they make you wilt. Nevertheless, once the seed of imperishable knowledge has been sown, it is never destroyed. The Father sits here and says to you children: You children have to become very fearless. Baba tells you to write: We come every 5000 years at the confluence age to show you this fair and exhibition. Also write that this war takes place every 5000 years in order to make the old world new and to change the residents of hell into residents of heaven. Baba gives you many directions. He shows you very easy methods. Remember the Father and claim the sovereignty of heaven. Human beings continue to take a dip in water; they should then do that in the ocean. Rivers have emerged from the ocean. The ocean is the father of rivers. People should go and bathe there. However, that is salt water, which is why people go to bathe in the rivers of sweet water. You are now the children of the Ocean of Knowledge. The Ocean of Knowledge, the Purifier, is the Father; you are His children. It is understood of those who do a lot of service that they are very good flowers. Good flowers are repeatedly invited to the exhibitions because it is understood that so-and-so is cleverer than they are. However, regard has to be given to those who are clever. Baba always explains: Never become angry. Explain with love. When someone becomes angry, Baba understands that he has a powerful evil spirit in him. Some don’t hesitate to become angry with their parents and so they become even more degraded. Would the Lord of the Poor ever become angry with the poor? Baba, the Lord of the Poor, has come to make the poor wealthy. Those who are multimillionaires here will become maids and servants in their next birth. The poor who study well will go and become kings and queens. Some children who come to the centres don’t even give anything for Godly service. They don’t know that, by sowing a few seeds, their future can become so elevated. There is also the example of Sudama. He donated in the name of God and believed that he would receive the fruit of that in his next birth. Baba writes: Children, in return for one brick of yours, you will receive palaces. You give shells here and they become diamonds there. This is why there is the praise of “a handful of rice”. When people go to a Sikh temple, they definitely put something in there. However, here, the Father Himself is the Bestower. 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. Become very fearless and do the service of changing thorns into flowers. Continue to sow an imperishable seed in everyone.
2. The thorn of anger is very big. Renounce it and become very lovely. Do service with love. Have regard for the serviceable ones.
May you be an embodiment of authority who constantly swings in the swing of happiness with the greatness of truth.
The praise of the children who are embodiments of the authority of truth is: When there is truth, the soul dances. The boat of truth may rock but it cannot sink. No matter how much someone tries to shake you, with your greatness of truth, you will swing in the swing of happiness even more. They do not shake you, but swing you in a swing. This is not shaking, but swinging, and so thank them for swinging you because you are swinging with the Father.
Let the light of all powers remain constantly with you so that Maya cannot come close to you.
