Sweet elevated versions to be read in class on the day of remembrance of sweet Jagadamba.
The third eye of knowledge (wisdom) is the basis of happiness and peace in our life.
Song: Today, we people are in darkness ...
Om Shanti. In the song you heard that we people are in darkness. However, today, all the world consider themselves to be very enlightened. They think that there is so much enlightenment because they can reach the moon, the sky and the stars. What can human beings not do today? Seeing all of these things, people think that they have become very enlightened, but in the song, it says that we are in darkness. So, what is that the darkness of, since they are doing so much research and also have the courage to reach the moon and the stars. While having all of these things, they don't have what they should have in life; they don't have a life that should be full of happiness and peace. People have not advanced in that, have they? Instead of having happiness and peace in life, their sorrow and peacelessness are increasing even more, and so this proves that people are becoming degraded in what they want. There is the darkness of that.
Now, while sitting at home, you can see things and talk to people somewhere else through the television, radio etc. They have all these things, but there still is not the peace and happiness that there should be in life, is there? There is the darkness of that and this is why it is said that people today are in darkness. Now, they are inventing so many cures and medicines for illnesses, but patients are still increasing, and so sorrow and peacelessness are increasing for us. This is why people call out: Come now! Whom are they calling out to? They are not calling out to any human being for this; they are calling out to God. Human beings don't have anything to give. When you say that we are human beings, this includes holy men, saints, great souls etc. Those whom you think will be able to take you beyond are human beings themselves, and all human beings are in darkness, and this is why we are not able to find what we want. Then we call out to God and sing: "You are the Stick for the blind". However, what are we blind in? It is not that we don't have eyes with which to see.
Yes, we have eyes to be able to see physical things and everything else, but we don't have the eye which is caned the eye of knowledge. We don't have the eye, that is, the wisdom of how We can have complete happiness and peace in our lives. However, it is not that there would be a physical eye of knowledge (in the centre of the forehead). Because some artists have drawn images of deities with a third eye, people think that perhaps there were human beings at some point who had three eyes. However, there cannot be such human beings with" three eyes. The meanings of all the ornaments that have been shown in the pictures have to be understood. No human being can ever have three eyes, even if they are deities or anyone else.
Human beings are deities and human beings are devils. That is the qualification of a human being. It is not that He would change the make-up of a human body so that someone would have four arms or three eyes. Or, if someone is a devil the make-up of that one's body would be something different. When human beings have no qualification, they are called devils and when they have the qualification of being full of with all virtues, sixteen celestial degrees complete, completely viceless, they are deities. There cannot be any difference in the make-up of the body. There is definitely a difference in their qualifications. You can call it pure and impure, full of virtues or defects, or corrupt or elevated. All these descriptive words are based on one's character.
There is a meaning in having four arms - two arms of a man and two arms of a woman. So, when man and woman are pure, they show the double crown of the four-armed image which symbolizes the kingdom. When there was such a kingdom, all the men and women in that kingdom were happy and so that is shown in the form of the four-armed image Showing Ravan with ten heads also has a meaning. There cannot be any person with ten heads; it symbolizes the vices. When it is the impure household, five vices of the male and five vices of the female put together are portrayed as the ten heads. When man and woman are impure, the world is then so unhappy and when man and woman are pure, the world is then happy. When human beings are pure, they are naturally healthy and they have natural beauty in their make-up and features; there is a difference in this. It is not that their form would have three eyes or ten heads.
The Father says: Look, this is the eye of knowledge. It is only with this eye of knowledge that you can attain happiness and peace for ever. Here, all human beings have become tired from having searched for so long. The more research they do, the more sorrow and peacelessness increase. Research is done to invent things to give happiness, but nevertheless, only such things that give sorrow are being made. Just see the bombs etc. that they are manufacturing. Otherwise, if this science were to be used in the right way, happiness and comfort could be found through many things. However, they have a divorced intellect at the time of Destruction, and they therefore only do wrong things with such an intellect. This is now the time for destruction and therefore everything the intellect does is wrong. It only thinks about the destruction of the world. This is why it is said that they have a divorced intellect at the time of destruction. From whom is their intellect divorced From God. So, now, no one has love for God. Everyone loves Maya.
Some say that whatever they see with their eyes is Maya: this body is Maya, this world is Maya, this wealth and prosperity is Maya. However, that is not Maya. Even deities had wealth and prosperity. Even deities had bodies and the deities lived in the world too, so was that Maya? No. The five vices are said to be Maya. The vices are Maya and it is this Maya that causes sorrow. Wealth and prosperity do not cause sorrow. Wealth is a means of happiness, but who has made that wealth impure? The five vices. Because of Maya the vices, everything has become the cause of sorrow. Now, there is sorrow through wealth, and sorrow through the body; there is now nothing but sorrow received through everything because Maya has now entered everything. This is why the Father says: Now, get rid of this Maya and you will then receive constant happiness from this body, from wealth and from the world, just like the deities.
So, to be saved from Maya does not mean that you leave your body or that you don't come into this world. There are some people who think that this world is Maya or they say that this world is an illusion. However, the world is not an illusion; the world is eternal, but it has been made into an illusion. People are unhappy because of the vices. This world now has to be made pure. This world was pure and deities used to live in that pure world. They too were human beings of this world. The world of the deities is not up above. When we human beings were deities, that world was called heaven. We human beings were residents of heaven, that is, that was the period of heaven and our generations continued in heaven. So, now all of these things have to be understood and Maya has to be finished. That is, we have to conquer the vices because now, since wealth is also accumulated through sinful actions, only sorrow is received from that.
Because the body is also based on the account of vices, there continues to be illness, untimely death etc. which only brings sorrow. Otherwise, our bodies did not have any diseases or there never used to be untimely death because it was created with the power of purity (vicelessness). Now it is created through vice and, therefore, it brings sorrow. Now, in order to liberate everyone from this sorrow and to make the world happy, we invoke that One (God). So, now, the Father is giving us the eye of knowledge (wisdom). We have to imbibe that in our intellect. We Brahmins have this third eye of knowledge; the deities do not have it. Previously, we were shudras - shudras means those who are vicious whereas now, from being on the vicious path, we have stepped on to the path of purity. So, we have now become Brahmins. Only Brahmins have the third eye and when they are deities this is their reward. The deities do not then need the eye of knowledge. This is why all the ornaments of the conch shell, the discus, the mace and the lotus belong to us Brahmins, not the deities.
The conch shell is the symbol for giving knowledge, but on the path of devotion they have taken things literally. The mace means we have conquered the five vices. The discus is the four ages. Originally, we were deities and then we came down and now the Father has come to take us up again. So we have now completed our cycle. So, this is the discus of self-realisation, that is, the self has now had a vision of itself. Some people ask: How did this world become old? Oh, but it is the law of nature. It has to become old with time. It is only when it becomes old that the new will then be built again. So, all of these things have to be understood. Just see what the principles for every thing and for every situation are. This is why we now have to make effort and become uplifted again; we have to become new. However, we cannot say that since the Father was there, why did He allow us to fall? He did not allow us to fall, but if we did not fall, how could the Father come to take us. up again? It is because we have fallen that He has come.
His praise is that He is the one who purifies the impure. If we did not become impure, how could we say that He is the One who purifies us? So, we have to become impure and then become pure again, and then we have to become impure from pure. This is the cycle. That is why this cycle has to be understood and we have to make ourselves pure from impure. We have to become worthy of worship because only then are we praised. So, praise is sung of those who become that and of the One who makes us that. There are the two sides: those who become and the One who makes you like that. It is not that those who become are the same as the One who makes one like that. It is not that the soul is the Supreme Soul and the Supreme Soul is the soul. Those who become are separate from the One who makes us like that. Therefore, you must never become confused about these things.
We have to become that, we have to be uplifted and make effort for that. The Father comes and gives us the understanding of what real effort is. He now teaches us what effort we need to make to receive an elevated attainment. For all this time, no one has taught us how to make that effort because all the ones who teach are themselves caught up in something. The One who uplifts us has now come and He is now showing us the effort to uplift ourselves. The more we imbibe that, the more reward we receive. So, we have all this knowledge in our intellect and we have to pay attention to what we have to do and what effort we have to make. However, the cycle has to continue to turn according to its own time.
So, we now have to take full benefit from the Father who has become present to perform an elevated task. The tasks that Christ and Buddha etc. came and performed are different tasks; those tasks are of our period of descent. Now, it is the time of ascent and so we have to understand time. This is the time to take all souls back, to uplift them. Those founders of religions come in the Copper Age, and the iron age has to bring us down. So they have to come down; they have to become impure from pure and this is why you cannot say of them that they are the ones who purify the impure; no. That One is the only one who comes and makes the impure ones pure, that is, He takes all souls into liberation and salvation. This is why that is the responsibility of only the One.
No matter how great souls may be, they first come down pure and then they have to descend because that is how their cycle has to turn; that is why they have to descend. Everyone has to go through their own cycle according to their own principles. So, now is the time to ascend and there is only One who is instrumental to elevate us, and so we have to claim that great fortune from the Father now. Achcha.
You are now earning a huge income here. From one, you are accumulating an income of one hundredfold or a thousandfold. Whatever you do with that enthusiasm, you also receive an income from that enthusiasm. If you do something out of compulsion, with difficulty after being fed up with it, or just for show, you receive the return accordingly. Some think that the world should see, "I have done this, I have done this." When some people make a donation, they do it to show everyone, but that donation then loses half its strength. This is why incognito donation has great importance. It has great strength and you receive a greater reward from that, whereas by making a show of it, its value reduces. So, there is a right way of doing everything. There
is then the account of everything being satoguni, rajoguni or tamoguni. So, how can we make our actions elevated and how should we do something through which our fortune becomes higher; you need to have the right method for this too. If you are doing everything in the right way, your fortune is definitely becoming more elevated. Achcha.
Love, remembrance and good morning from BapDada and Maa to the sweetest, very good, worthy children.
