Special Gift: Invaluable Inspirations from Dadi Prakashmani Ji compiled by Silicon Valley BKs

28 August 2020

Dadi (elder sister) Prakashmani Ji (a diamond or jewel of light), was the second administrative head of Brahma Kumaris. On August 25th, 2007, she left the physical body. Her life was her message.


Invaluable Inspirations from Dadi Prakashmani Ji


1. Godly disciplines and codes of conduct are the true decoration of our lives. We have to inculcate these into our lives and constantly continue to make progress.

2. Always have the intoxication: I am a light of God’s eyes. Secretly remain in God’s eyes and storms of Maya will not be able to shake your stage.

3. The beloved, merciful God of all of us is one Baba. Have an exchange of your heart with only Him. Never make a bodily being your friend or have wasteful thoughts of such beings or thoughts of others.

4. Never allow signs of sadness, dislike, or hatred to appear on your face. Always remain happy and continue to distribute happiness. Create such a happy atmosphere at your center that it makes everyone fortunate with happiness.

5. The more introverted you become physically and adopt silence in your mind, the more you will fill the atmosphere with light and might and those who come to you will be influenced by this. This is the service of giving sakaash in a subtle way.

6. You should not get caught up in “mine and yours” due to any reason and have a conflict with anyone. Disagreement with one another is the biggest obstacle in service. Now free yourself from this obstacle and free others too.

7. Give regard to the ideas of one another. First of all, listen to one another and then make a decision and there will not be two opinions. Definitely give respect to each one, young and old.

8. All of Baba’s children now have to become such mines of contentment that, on seeing you, everyone becomes content. Remain constantly content and make others content.

9. Always remember four mantras.

Never become careless; always remain alert.
Never dislike anyone and always have good wishes for everyone.
Never be jealous of anyone and have the race of progress.
Never be influenced by any person, object, or material comfort. Always remain under the influence of one Baba.
10. All of us are the royal children of the royal Father. Constantly fill yourself with the sanskars of royalty and purity. Free yourself from the sanskars of enslavement. Never let go of the truth.

Honor’s given to Dadi Prakashmani Jee
Dharma Chakra Medal (1984)
Key to the city of Los Angeles (1984)
City Medals of Sao Paulo and Frankfurt (1984)
United Nations International Year of Peace Medal (1986)
International Peace Messenger Award from the UN Secretary-General (1987)
Honorary Doctor of Literature from Mohanlal Sukhadia University, Udaipur, India (1992)
Giant Award for Social work from Giant International, Mumbai (1994)
’Dharma Ratna’, by World Religious Parliament, New Delhi.
From our hearts, we thank you for your unlimited service and love for this world. Our salutations to Dadiji.

Journey of Self Awareness Online Workshop
Aug 22, Sat, 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm  Pacific Time

Journey of Self Awareness
“When you become aware of silence, immediately there is that state of inner still alertness. You are present. You have stepped out of thousands of years of collective human conditioning.” - Eckhart Tolle
Our consciousness is conditional with our worldly human experiences, creating emotional and mental blockages. This conditional awareness clouds our true potential.

Join us to learn:
    How to peel off the layers of conditioned awareness
    How to endeavor to explore the journey of self-awareness
    How to Use the power of silence to experience the inner light

Brahma Kumaris Florida Service News: BK Rakhi Special

9 August 2020

Highlights from the BK Miami Rakhi Celebrations (2 Aug, 2020)

The special atmosphere of Raksha Bandhan brought a very unique gift to look at ourselves, access ourselves, and use this as a gift to leap forward in our spiritual life. Sr. Manda was the specially invited facilitator who beautifully guided this powerful process by being so transparent and honest with her spiritual efforts and creating this special space where each of the family could dive deeper with Baba and stabilize the self in the present.

 

Rakhi Bhog Offering : Sr. Manda and Sr. Waddy

 

Following the class and meditation by Sr. Manda each soul exclusively shared a loving drishti with the rest of the family and got a unique blessing which was read by Sr. Waddy.

 

Those at the center got their rakhis tied and rest got it delivered along with the loving brahma bhojan. Was also very special to also be in the loving company of dear alokik family after a long time.

Dealing With Difficult People With Love - August 16 | 5:30 - 7:30 pm

This one-hour spiritual discussion will be followed by a powerful hour of meditation.  Through guided commentary, soft music, and silence we will contribute much-needed healing energy of love, peace, and care to our world.

MARGATE

Raksha Bandhan

Baba’s children are preparing physically and spiritually to celebrate and strengthen our sacred bond with Baba on Raksha Bandhan. All will join the celebrations with Mohini Didi and the US Family on August 3. For the few who can come out physically, we will be having a small but powerful celebration live (body and soul) at the residence.

 

Live classes at Commerical Site

Two to three weeks ago, in accordance with state and city guidelines, we were slowly resuming live classes at the center. However, with the second flare up of COVID, souls are very hesitant to come out to class, therefore Zoom increases but live classes and programs at the Center are at a standstill for now.


We are taking decisions whether to close the commercial site and continue functioning at the residence until the situation changes.

 

Evening Sustenance – Avyakti Parivar

Everyone is enjoying the evening sustenance programs with Mohini Didi. Thanks to Sister Mohini, the IT staff and all serviceable instruments for making this family sustenance possible.

The Secrets of Divine Balance

Brother Vivek did a wonderful ZOOM class on the subject, "The Secrets of Divine Balance.”
Since we are all striving to achieve balance in life, Vivek pointed out that keeping the mind uncluttered and focused helps us move towards this balance.


We need to hear and feel whatever comes up in the mind and heart so that we can move through what is there and return to peace.

 

The shift from the Consciousness of "Letting Go" to True Awareness.

Sister Yolanda explained how we can shift from the idea of " Letting go" to being in True Awareness. Once we experience True Awareness, the urge to Let Go will vanish as we understand what our True Nature really is. It not complicated to SHIFT....it becomes you, the eternal soul going through it's journey!

 

The New Unlimited You

This class focused on checking every hour of the day if you had any limited, thoughts, and reactions. Moving from this limitation to your unlimited true self.


Many souls felt how they were indeed having limited thoughts rather frequently and it was an eyeopening experience.

 

You make a difference in Collective Consciousness

We explored how we are all part of the collective consciousness and each thought, intention, and action will make an essential change collectively!


How important it becomes what you are personally broadcasting in this world. It gives us extra motivation to be pure in thoughts, words, and deeds!

 

Sister Yolanda read the murli for the Miami family. She observed how the Miami Family is such a great and creative team during the COVID 19 especially!
