The First-ever Voting in the History of the Universe
Voting is choosing a leader who can lead you. We must choose somebody who can keep us happy and safe. The first-ever voting ever since the creation of souls took place at our eternal home Satlok. All of the souls who are living on earth currently, voted the wrong person. We all selected Kaal Brahm (Satan) over our Real Father (Supreme Lord Kabir Sahib Ji).
We left our home where there was no suffering, no old age, no death, and no sorrows what so ever. We left our Creator God and came here with Kaal Brahm. As a result, we all are suffering in hell and in the lives of 8.4 million creatures. We are forced to do thieving, fraud, intoxication, carnivore, bribery, etc by the pressure of Kaal Brahm.
We are far from home and our Father (Almighty) is searching for us. Right now, he has come to the earth in the form of Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj to bring us all back to our eternal abode Satlok.
Almighty God Kabir Says to His beloved soul Garibdas Ji,
“Gota maroon swarg mein, Ja pethu pataal |
Garibdas dhundhta phiroon, Apne hirein moti laal ||”
All the humans in the world must identify their Creator Almighty God Kabir, who has come to Haryana, India in the body of Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj. One must Take Naam Diksha (Initiation) from Him and start doing true worship according to the holy scriptures to go back to our real home Satlok.
