26/06/95 Om Shanti Avyakt BapDada Madhuban 18/07/74
Today, BapDada is especially seeing the line of fortune of the Madhuban niwasis. Each of you is creating your lineof fortune on the basis of the shrimat and sustenance you have taken from BapDada. Do you constantly look at yourimage in the mirror? Do you know the most important specialities of this image? Those who paint physical portraitsknow what specialities the value of the portrait would be based on. The most important speciality, the attraction andthe value of a physical portrait, is based on the face. When any picture is looked at, everyone’s vision will first bedrawn to the face. Each portrait is valued according to the face and features in the portrait. In the same way, on whatimportant aspects is the value of the image of fortune based? What are its most important specialities? If someonewere to look at the image of fortune, what specialities would he look for?
The first and most important speciality seen in the image of fortune is whether the awareness is powerful, that is,whether you are constantly the embodiment of remembrance. Secondly, does the attitude of being brothers remainconstant at all times? Thirdly, is your vision spiritual, that is, is it completely pure? These three are the main things:awareness, attitude and vision. It is only on the basis of these three specialities that you are able to see in the imagethe shine, the sparkle and the intoxication of divine virtues. If these three aspects are there in an accurate and elevatedform, the image of such fortune automatically attracts all other souls towards itself. Just as when someone is walkingalong a road, souls would be attracted by the physical eyes and features, in the same way, other souls are definitelyattracted towards the portrait of fortune with its spiritual drishti, its constant awareness and its attitude. A physicalportrait becomes instrumental in changing you into a bodily being, that is, it becomes an instrument to make you bodyconscious and attracts you towards itself against your conscious wish. It attracts weak Brahmins or the effort衫akingsouls and makes them body conscious, and then they complain that whilst walking along the path, whilst seeing livingor non衍iving images, from being soul conscious, they become body conscious. In the same way, when you makeyour spiritual image or portrait attractive, many body苞onscious souls whilst moving along will become soulconscious. Since physical images have that much attraction, do you living spiritual images not have this muchattraction? If this spiritual image has even one of these three aspects missing, it would not be considered valuable. Ina physical portrait, if the eyes, the nose or the ears etc. are inaccurate, the value of the portrait is greatly reduced. Nomatter how beautiful the portrait as a whole may be, if something is lacking in the most important part, the face, theportrait becomes useless or its value is halved. So too, if even one of the three specialities is missing, the time periodof your reward and attainment is halved, that is, from being sixteen celestial degrees complete, you come into the partof being fourteen celestial degrees, and so the value is halved, isn’t it? Therefore, you need to check all these threethings at all times. Achcha, do you check yourselves in this way?
Do you know what is the meter for checking? You would check using some meter, wouldn’t you? What is the meterwith which you would check yourself? The meter is the intellect, and from the moment you become a Brahmin, youare given the eye of a divine intellect. For instance, in some worldly clans, in order to make someone an expert inbattling or violence, soon after he takes birth, initially, instead of using the sword, they teach him how to use a knifeor a stick. Through this he is able to maintain the awareness of his clan of brave warriors. BapDada also gives allyou Brahmins the eye of the divine intellect to be able to recognise Maya as well as to save yourselves from herattack. However, if instead of having a divine intellect, you become those who have an ordinary intellect, you areunable to check yourself and you are therefore unable to recognise Maya and save yourself from Maya’s attack.
First of all, check if you constantly have the eye of the divine intellect with yourself? Is the bad company of Maya ora very influential atmosphere sometimes making the eye of your divine intellect dirty? Or, is it causing any defects?In order to create such an elevated portrait of yourself, in order to fill yourself with these three specialities, rememberthree terms : 1) You have to stabilise yourself in the stage of nirvana, the stage of being beyond. 2) You have to behumble. 3) You have to bring about construction of the new world. To be beyond, to bring about renewal and to behumble, that is, beyond any desire for regard or respect: keep these three terms in your awareness and the portrait ofyour fortune will become very attractive. Whilst moving along, you lack these three things. You stay very little inthe stage of being beyond; you come into sound easily and with a lot of interest.
According to the deep desire ofcoming into sound, to the same extent, the desire which you should have for the sweetness of being stable in the stageof being beyond is lacking. Instead of being humble, you easily accept all the different types of respect: respect foryour position, your virtues, your service, your success etc., or else you have the desire to accept it. You seek respectand you are therefore, even now, unable to complete the course of self訃espect. When you stop seeking this form ofrespect, you will easily and automatically be able to have the stage of self訃espect. Desire for respect makes youforget self訃espect. In the same way, instead of being constructive and bringing about renewal, you bring aboutdifferent types of destruction. That is, instead of bringing about renewal, you sometimes become instrumental inbringing someone’s stage down. In every thought and every action, constantly check whether that particular thought,word or action is instrumental in the task of renewal. By having such a stage, you will automatically develop allvirtues. At the present time, this is the method to intensify your effort.
The result of Madhuban niwasis is good. The majority of you have been tireless servers in the subject of love and co觔peration and will also continue to be this in the future. You have become worthy of being praised, because BapDadaHimself is praising you. What do you have to do further now? Madhuban niwasis should make a vow that is muchmore special than that made by other souls. What is that? You have to take this vow: We will all follow the onedirection, have the same elevated attitude, the same spiritual vision; we will have a constant, stable stage, be co觔perative with one another and have good wishes for one another. Whilst having pure feelings and elevated wishesfor all, even though each of us has different sanskars, we will make the fortress of satopradhan sanskars the same asthe Father’s and make the nature of the self, that which has self訃espect, very strong. This is the vow you have tomake. Do you have the courage to make this vow for yourself and for others? Even those who stay in theirhousehold and have to go into different atmospheres make this vow just for themselves. You Madhuban niwasismustn’t just make this vow for yourselves, but you also need the courage to make this vow for the gathering. This isthe speciality of Madhuban, the land of blessings. Do you understand?
Just as you showed the practical fruit of courage, in the same way, by continuing to caution one another and co觔perating with one another, you will be successful in putting this vow into practice. Just as other zones have beentold to give the proof of their special service, in the same way, Madhuban niwasis also have to give the proof of this.Is it difficult to give this proof? For how long have you been taking loving sustenance and teachings from the sakarand avyakt forms? After taking sustenance, you become instruments to give sustenance to other souls. Have youbecome instruments to give such sustenance or are you still those who take sustenance? Now, you older ones have tosustain the new children that come, that is, through your being the embodiment of the teachings and with your love,you have to remain busy in this task day and night and co觔perate in making them move forward. This avyakt part isespecially for the new ones, whilst the older ones now have to become the same as the Father and increase the zealand enthusiasm of new ones.
Just as BapDada places the children ahead of Himself and makes them even more elevated than He is, so it is the dutyof the older ones to show the proof by revealing themselves as the practical embodiment of all the teachings and makethe new ones go ahead of themselves. You have to give the return of the sustenance in a practical way. Achcha.
To such worthy children, to those who show the image of their fortune through their dharna; to those who constantlyuse the most important mantra and meter; to those who use their every thought and second for the benefit of others inthe same way as BapDada; to those who constantly maintain their own original respect; to those who reveal theoriginal and eternal sanskars in the same way as BapDada; to the stars of success who use their every thought andmoment in a worthwhile way, BapDada’s love, remembrances and namaste.
