After over a year of requests by Anthony Strano and others, the aboutbk PR site  last week deleted untruths about BK philosophy attributed to him:  Anthony, alas, did not live to see his requests carried out.

    aboutbk site editor, Divine Sister Brahma Kumari Kathy Shea, has recently written an opinion on the well worn 'destruction' topic (below).Though aboutbk continues to deny that God Himself predicted a 1976 'destruction' (leading to a new 'construction'). BKWSU spiritual leadership seems incapable of acknowledging the matter, dealing with it, and moving on, to the detriment of its credibility.+JAYANTI: ON HONESTY


The idea is, of course, not new. Jesus, any number of Eastern mystics, and more recently Joseph Campbell, Eckhart Tolle, Shunyamurti ( one time BK Robert Shubow)+ADI DEV : WHAT ? and many others endorse the concept.

BK philosophy says that BK adherents are the unique catalysts to bring about 'construction' after the 'destruction' cataclysms as described by Shunyamurti (below) in his introduction to an upcoming Sat Yoga Institute retreat.

 BK Kathy Shea:Destruction or Construction?

   'For nearly 20 years I have been a student of the Brahma Kumaris. In all that time, I’ve never been seriously troubled by the notion of “destruction” as taught by the BKs. Perhaps it is because I was not acquainted with the BKs until after 1976, a date that has been mentioned as foretelling “destruction.”...

Nevertheless, the topic holds great interest. Over the years, the teachings contained in the Murlis have highlighted not only “destruction”, but also “construction” (or “establishment”) as parts of the eternal world cycle'.

 Shunyamurti, spiritual director, Sat Yoga Institute:

"Our planet is now going through a process of death and rebirth. We are all included in this ordeal of transfiguration. A collective awakening to the urgency of living in illumined consciousness is now occurring. We must transcend the ego to attain the state of grace, in which we can function as healers of the planetary mind and heart."

    'A new planetary culture is being born. The old is dying. This transition cannot be completed successfully without apocalyptic agonies. But it is an unconditional blessing, one that has been prophesied and prayed for by sages of every spiritual tradition. Now we are witnessing the new world being born.

Many are confused and frightened by the growing chaos. Once we understand the secret significance of all the radical changes-including plagues, earthquakes, climate change, nuclear meltdowns, war, terrorism, political conflict, and psychological instability-we can ride the tsunami wave with joy and full empowerment....'

Eckhart Tolle : 'A New Earth':

Referencing the Old and New Testaments , Eckhart Tolle talks of the collapse of the existing world order and the arising of a ‘new heaven and a new earth’...'A new heaven’ is the emergence of a transformed state of human consciousness. and ‘a new earth’ is its reflection in the physical realm’...Eckhart goes on to say that before the establishment of 'a new earth' there will be all manner of physical upheavals in the world ‘some of which we are already witnessing.’

Sure, but that radical change was the result of a number of successive refinements in those 25 years. Paradigm Shifts rarely happen suddenly -

Not sure if this applies so much to BK in India.
But in Europe, the BK community certainly looks like a species slowly heading for extinction.

Baba may not have made any major distinction here. After all, early movies did not have much cinematography. They were largely recorded theater performances

That makes much more sense then
Baba must have referred to a theater performance in 1901, which then fits the year of his marriage perfectly.
