It is my belief that according to your specific reality you have a "form" you accept for ShivBaba. For instance, I accepted ShivBaba as a point of light. And during my meditations I visualize this point of light and I start feeling all I can of it. How it felt? how it was? Then this "static image of a point of light" starts to give me "something more". But the starting point was believing ShivBaba could fit in this image ... I think He does the rest ... What if at this point you still do not feel the point of light is OK? Then I think you have to find how you actually accept ShivBaba to be ... Could it be Christ? Budda? How you accept it to be?
Can Christ or Buddha be ShivBaba? If we can all imagine the way as we please and this can be the individual truth for each and every one, than how will be one religion established, how would there be harmony in vibration. We will be sitting side by side and remembering different things, but it is said that Brahmins can perform powerful transformation if they have one and the same thought in one second.
How can there be unity if one has his own idea? This will be just superficial unity. So first there should be unity in the ideas, that who is ShivBaba what is he etc. For this we have the knowledge
Why should he have to come and narrate new knowledge if the old knowledge of Buddh and Christ was correct? He has to come and narrate new knowledge, because the old knowldge does not make new world and he is needed in practical for us, the knowledge of him is not contained in the old knowledge.
So if we take the Murli – then it is never said to remember Dada Lekraj, but it is exactly said that we should not remember him. Remembering him as a point of light requires the knowledge where does this point of light enters. It does not mean we should remember a dead body from the past.
Sakar Murli played by Shiva the Supreme Father by the mouth of Brahma Dada Lekhraj, published by BK with date of revision 1.12.2002: "We mustn’t remember anyone except Baba. When Nehru died, people remembered him so much. If you also rememberi in the same way, what is the difference between them and you
." Alive, corporeal personality is very much needed so to know him and his acts, so that he can play his role.
The same way Christ or Buddha, played roles, he plays his role, but if we say that he did in the past, then what should be the result of his coming should be practically visible, which is unity, one family, one direction, one kingdom, peace, happiness, purity, prosperity...
I have also seen a mother sitting in front of Baba via Virendra Dev Dixit, the way she was sitting and listening though me much more about what is rememberance and how to remember, what is purity in mind and body, then many, many words about it, because it is practical. Rememberance of point of light is impractical.
The drill done by Avyakt BapDada is to learn to put a full stop to the mind. BKs won’t accept just like that presenting them the knowledge, because they don’t accept the corporeal. They think and hear that he is an impure human being. They need purity, they don’t like to have a connection with any corporeal being.
One may make effort to remember a point of light, but faces and pictures of the corporeal world come in the eye of the mind without effort, it is because whatever the eyes see, the ears hear, the organs feel is remembered. For the BKs ShivBaba is in a form of a husband. They will maybe run when they need protection, when they understand their purity is in danger, that there is only one support, or if they are thrown out, or when dectruction comes.
The idea is that there is safety in the BK familly, people are pure, purity means to have connection with one ShivBaba only, not to isolate oneself from the world – remembering something from another world. First safety in needed in the mind and intellect. ShivBaba has come to establish the pure household path. BKs have to teach the real purity what is it for a man and wife to live together and live a lotus like pure life. How is it possible that a fire and cotton wool can be together and cannot catch fire. Always the best way to learn is to see an example. So we need corporeal example of a perfect couple.
Sakar Murli played by Shiva the Supreme Father by the mouth of Brahma Dada Lekhraj, published by BK with date of revision 4.12.02; "You say: Shiv Baba, I belong to You. Your intellect's Yoga goes up above, because Baba Himself says: Remember Me, and your sins will be absolved. Stay on this pilgrimage. For instance, even if this Baba goes somewhere, you still have to remember Shiv Baba. Shiv Baba went to Delhi and Kanpur in this Chariot. In your intellect, let there be the remembrance of Shiv Baba. You mustn’t stay down below. Your intellect should remain up above. The soul remembers the Father, the Supreme Soul. The Father says: My residence is up above. You mustn't wander around after Me here. Remember Me up there. You souls also reside there with the Father. It is not that the Father’s residence is separate from yours; no. Make these things sit in your intellect."
See ... it is very confusing, so we need clarification, we need a teacher who can explain this. It is very easy to remember your teacher.
