20 + 1 Atlantian births

(includes a discussion on the deified royal Ka; Sita’s and Ravana’s journey to Lanka; Rama saving Sita; meaning of Ea (the house of “water”); new creation for the Golden Age and the Copper Age; Enki’s connection to the end and Confluence Age)
Atlantis is the place, in the first half cycle, where the soul of Brahma Baba (as the King of Brarath) was playing the most significant role. So, I have referred to all our births in the first half cycle as the Atlantian births. One can take 20 births in the first half cycle. These are the 20 Atlantian births. In addition to these 20 births, there is an additional “1 birth” which (in the BK knowledge) have been referred to as being taken in:
1. the Confluence Age, at the end
2. the Confluence between the Silver and Copper Ages
3. both (in the Confluence Age and in the Confluence between the Copper and Silver Ages).
It is only in this 1 birth that a deified royal Ka is used as the birth role. In all other births, in the Copper and Iron Ages, the souls are just using the Ka (birth roles) which are not deified. When the person begins to live a new religious life, in the Copper and Iron Ages, his Ka is elevated or spiritualised so as to give it a new spiritual state.
In the Golden Age, it is the subtle deity roles/bodies of Krishna and Radhe which will be the birth roles. The people are deities, in the Golden Age, and so their birth roles will also be deity roles. The deity souls, in the Golden Age, may take a maximum of 8 births as either Krishna (man) or as Radhe (women). Later, in other articles, I will be discussing the birth during the Confluence between the Golden and Silver Ages.
In the Silver Age, the souls will be using the subtle deity bodies/roles of Rama and Sita as their birth roles. They may take a maximum of 12 births as either Rama (man) or Sita (woman) in the Silver Age. Then, they will take another birth, during the Confluence of the Silver and Copper Ages, where their birth role will be a deified royal Ka because their spiritual strength is still quite high. So long as they can refrain from using the vices, they will be able to remain in their deified royal Ka state, during the Confluence of the Silver and Copper Ages. For convenience, I shall be referring to this deified royal Ka as the “last Silver Aged deified royal Ka” because the deity souls are depending on the Silver Aged spiritual ability to remain in the deity state by remaining virtuous (so as to keep their Ka in the “deified royal Ka” state).
At the end of the Silver Age, all the deity souls can also be seen as the Sita (or Sitas) who were being taken away by Ravana so as to be kept as a captive in Lanka. This journey to Lanka is the journey in the Duat, which will finally bring the souls to the end of the cycle where they are the Sitas in Lanka (waiting for Rama to safe them). Lanka represents the world, at the end, where the vices/Ravana is in control.
At the end of the cycle, God (as Rama) saves the deity souls again, by bringing them into the Confluence Age. So, Rama was portrayed as going on His journey in the jungle (the old uncontrollable world, at the end) to safe Sita. All deity souls are the Sitas who are trapped in Lanka.
At the end, when God comes into the corporeal world (from the Soul World) so as to re-create the divine world, He creates angelic bodies for the deity souls so that we can use it when we come into the Confluence Age. One of these angelic bodies is our Confluence Aged deified royal Ka (Confluence Aged birth role or spiritual effort-maker role). We have to use this new birth role when we take our spiritual birth because we need to take a high jump from our weak state into powerful deity state. In myths, the deified royal Ka has been portrayed as a special dress etc which God gives us so that we come under His protection while He helps and guides us (the souls) to become pure and spiritually powerful again. It is a ‘dress’ that will help us to attain immortality for the soul.
The journey (of Sita and Ravana) in the Sky/Duat to Lanka, connects the last Silver Aged Deified Royal Ka to the Confluence Aged Deified Royal Ka (spiritual birth role or spiritual effort-maker role). These 2 deified royal Kas can together be seen as 1 of the 21 lives on earth when we experience happiness on earth. It is as if the beginning phase of this 1 life is experienced during the beginning phase of the Confluence between the Silver and Copper Ages; and the last phase of this 1 life is experienced during our last phase during the Confluence Age, at the end. It can also be said that the first phase of this 1 life is enjoyed during our last phase in the Confluence Age; and the last phase of this 1 life is enjoyed in the first phase during the Confluence between the Silver and Copper Ages.
For Brahma Baba, the founder of the Brahma Kumaris, this 1 life is more significant during the Confluence Age, at the end. For me, this one life was more significant during the Confluence between the Silver and Copper Ages. This was also a reason why my past birth, who walked out of the divine world, was first named Ea (Mesopotamian god of water or "the house of water") and he was later named Enki (the Lord of the Earth).
My past birth was named as Ea because it was to portray that he was taking over the Confluence Aged ‘role’ (which Brahma Baba was using during the Confluence Age when God was using him as a chariot). My past birth was, later, named as Enki because it was to portray that he was taking over rule on earth which Brahma Baba (as the King of Bharath) had in the first half cycle. These were also meant to signify that, at the end, God would be using my past births in the combined form (in the underworld, for the creation of the False Golden Aged world). I will be explaining this further in later articles.
During the Confluence of the Silver and Copper Ages, the corporeal body and the subtle bodies were seen as the houses or temples of the soul. The deity souls saw themselves as the souls who were living in these temples/houses. The soul itself can also be seen as the house that contains the “water”. Since the soul is playing the role involving the primordial waters (bringing in of the new creation), knowledge, prophecies and memories of what had happened in the previous Confluence Age, the soul is seen as containing the ‘water’. In the Confluence Age, God’s vibrations are absorbed and contained within the soul. During the Confluence of the Silver and Copper Ages, these souls were trying to play the same roles for world benefit based on the memories that were emerging. Thus, my past birth was named as Ea (the house of “water”).
The name ‘Ea’ links the Confluence of the Silver and Copper Ages to the Confluence Age (at the end). The name Ea was continued to be used in the Babylonian and Akkadian myths, though in the Sumerian myths, importance began to be given to Ea’s new name of Enki. Enki was also a creator god because the mythical names (relating to the new creation) were meant to connect that ancient time to the present time (when it is the Confluence Age). This connection will be made through the 2 deified royal Kas.
It is through the Confluence Age, at the end, that the new Golden Aged creation is brought into existence. During the Confluence between the Silver and Copper Age, the new creation for the mortal world (Duat) is brought into existence. In addition to this, the foundation and worship is laid for the next Golden Aged world to be brought into existence. So, that which brings in the next Golden Age begins in the Copper Age through the worship etc. But this Golden Age can only be brought into existence, at the end of the cycle. So, some of my past birth will have to continue their lifes in the afterlife, now, since the deified royal Ka of Enki is connected to my Confluence Aged Deified Royal Ka.
