Your Thoughts and Feelings Are Not Yours from Ten Teachings for One World by Mother Mary


Your Thoughts and Feelings Are Not Yours from Ten Teachings for One World by Mother Mary

What if your thoughts and feelings were not yours? What if by some odd occurrence, your thoughts and feelings were exchanged with someone else’s? Would you still be who you are? This is a profound question and worth pondering. If you answered yes, what is it that remains if your thoughts and feelings were no longer the same? How much would this change your behavior and how you see yourself? Would you suddenly behave and see yourself differently?

The extent to which you tend to identify with, believe, and act out your thoughts and feelings is the extent to which this thought and feeling exchange would matter. Or would it? How different are your thoughts and feelings from other people’s? Don’t all people have similar thoughts and feelings? Aren’t you essentially more like other human beings than different from them? Do your thoughts and feelings make you unique, or does something else make you unique?

Your needs, drives, and desires are similar to every other human being’s. You may have different preferences and a different personality style, but these differences do not make you different from other human beings in a fundamental way. Everyone has the same needs, drives, and desires: for survival, food, water, sleep, shelter, security, safety, comfort, love, belonging, happiness, peace, and beauty. These are some of the basic drives that unite all human beings.

All human beings also have similar feelings: Everyone feels fear, joy, love, guilt, anger, shame, jealousy, envy, hatred, and greed. Only the extent to which these feelings are acted on varies, but they exist in all human beings. An argument could be made that some people, namely sociopaths, lack feelings of guilt and shame. However, those individuals are universally acknowledged as aberrant.

Because all humans have similar drives, needs, desires, and feelings, it is easy enough to conclude that their thoughts are similar as well, since thoughts go hand-in-hand with drives, needs, desires, and feelings. So, even without knowing exactly what everyone else is thinking, it is safe to assume that people have very similar thoughts going through their minds.

So, generally speaking, what makes people different is the extent to which they believe and act on their thoughts and which thoughts they believe and act on. For instance, someone who is successful most likely disregards thoughts that might interfere with success and embraces those that support success, while someone who is less successful most likely does the opposite. Although nothing, including success, is completely dependent on one’s thoughts, your relationship to your thoughts really matters.

The same is true of feelings: Your relationship to your feelings, particularly to uncomfortable feelings, really matters. Your relationship to your feelings determines whether you will feel bad or not and how you will behave. The feelings that you believe and focus on are strengthened and become determining forces in your life, while ones you brush off have little effect at all.

Relating to difficult feelings in a way that does not aggravate them or cause them to be a problem in your life is a skill that must be learned. It takes some effort to become conscious of your thoughts and feelings. Most people are not aware of what they are thinking and feeling, nor do they realize that they have a choice about how they will respond to their thoughts and feelings. Most people react to their thoughts and feelings without realizing that there is another way to relate to them that is likely to be less problematic.

This lack of awareness causes people to be victims of their own humanness, of the thoughts they were given. The human condition is a state of suffering for the simple reason that people do not naturally question their thoughts and feelings. They assume that their thoughts are valid, and they assume that their thoughts are their thoughts. These are mistaken assumptions that lead to so much pain. These assumptions are at the root of human suffering.

So again, what if your thoughts and feelings were not yours? They are what give you the experience of being a human being, while you are actually much more than a human being: You are a spiritual being. So, when I say that your thoughts and feelings are not yours, I mean that they have nothing to do with the spiritual being that you are and everything to do with the human being that you actually are not. There is nothing wrong with being a human being, of course, except that identifying with what makes you human—your thoughts and feelings—means that you will suffer.

There is a time in your evolution when suffering is meant to be the driving force. Suffering carries evolution forward. And there comes a time when suffering is no longer necessary and the evolutionary lesson is how not to suffer within the human condition, because this is possible. You could say that how not to suffer while being human is the last lesson before graduating to a more divine state. Many are ready to learn how to do this, and many are teaching this, because humanity is reaching a critical point in its evolution, where human beings must learn to live in greater harmony and peace.

Suffering is caused by the resistance, sense of lack, and false beliefs of the egoic mind. Attaining peace and happiness is largely a matter of moving beyond such thoughts and beliefs. You move beyond them simply by not believing them. The pain that results from believing such thoughts drives the discovery of this truth. You eventually see that these thoughts are not true and not helpful, that they have betrayed and misled you.

What is it that is capable of seeing this great truth? You are! When you connect with your divine nature, you feel wise, peaceful, and loving. When you believe your thoughts, you feel lacking, fearful, and unloving and you lose touch with the truth about yourself and about life. Your thoughts create a sense of being someone who struggles with life. Without these thoughts, you are free to experience life as the beautiful and joy-filled gift that it is.

To return to our inquiry, if your thoughts and feelings are not yours, then do they matter? They seemed to matter because, after all, they were yours. Aren’t they what make you you? Who are you if you are not these thoughts? They are what make up the human you, but they are not what make up the real you. They shroud the real you, in fact. What a surprise to discover this. Who are you, really? Aren’t you what is able to see this truth? Aren’t you what is beyond all thoughts and feelings? So, again, do your thoughts and feelings matter? What if they do not? Then what? On what basis do you live life if not on the basis of your thoughts and feelings?

This teaching, that your thoughts and feelings are not yours, is the fifth teaching. It is a teaching upon which all else turns. Your life as you knew it ends the moment you accept this teaching, and a new life can begin, as you try out your butterfly wings and discover that, yes, there is a new way to live that does not include suffering. All you had to do was turn away from the egoic mind and be here in this beautiful life just as it is. But how do you do that? This brings us to the sixth teaching...

What if your thoughts and feelings were not yours? What if by some odd occurrence, your thoughts and feelings were exchanged with someone else’s? Would you still be who you are? This is a profound question and worth pondering. If you answered yes, what is it that remains if your thoughts and feelings were no longer the same?

The Soul's Plan from All Grace


The Soul's Plan from All Grace

Greetings! This is the one you’ve known as Jesus the Christ. The fact that Grace guides you on your journey within the Illusion is a sign of great benevolence and love. You have been given programming and free will to shape this journey. But, importantly, you have also been given a plan—a divinely inspired destiny—and Grace, the shaping hand of God, to deliver that plan and help you fulfill it.

This plan was developed by your soul with the help of nonphysical beings before you entered this lifetime. It includes lessons, talents, gifts, opportunities, and certain destined events and meetings with people with whom you have soul agreements. Your soul’s plan is a blueprint, but without the details spelled out.

The details are filled in by your choices and also determined by the circumstances in which you find yourself. For instance, if your choices led to you living in a particular city, then that location provides the setting, environment, and people your soul must work with to bring about your plan. These circumstances were not known by your soul prior to you being born.

Although certain things are predetermined before birth, such as your parents and your place of birth, how your life will play out and where is largely unknown to the soul. The soul has to play it by ear and arrange the opportunities, lessons, meetings, and other circumstances to fulfill your plan as best it can within the existing conditions. As a result, your soul must be in touch with you closely throughout your life, which it does through the Heart: the intuition.

Grace’s primary means for shaping and steering people’s lives is through the intuition, which works surprisingly well. People respond quite easily to their own intuition if their mind doesn’t interfere and also to intuitive nudges to do and say things for others. People quite naturally deliver messages to others, especially if the one delivering the message has no self-interest in the matter or opinions about the person the message is for. As a result, Grace often works through disinterested or unrelated parties: Someone unknown to you tells you something or does something for you that changes your direction or even your life. This happens all the time.

Fortunately, there are many ways your plan can be fulfilled. How that is done specifically is generally left up to free will, but Grace intervenes to bring certain opportunities and limit others. Grace is like a hand that puts certain people, opportunities, and information in front of you, which you can say yes or no to. If you say no to an important opportunity, Grace may provide another suitable one or arrange circumstances that help you see the benefit of saying yes to the original opportunity. Grace can be very convincing! It can make certain opportunities difficult to dismiss and certain directions difficult to pursue.

This hand of Grace, which arranges and prohibits certain events in your life and in the world, is more of a real force than you may realize. Although I would never suggest that people are puppets in relation to this force, there are strings on you that get pulled from time to time, although you can always go against them.

These strings are pulled by nonphysical forces. Their job is to manage the comings and goings in life in a way that keeps them moving in a particular direction according to everyone’s soul’s plan, the larger plan for earth, and the even larger plan for the Whole.

There is both free will and something controlling the unfolding of your life and life in general. You fit into a much larger picture, a much larger unfolding: a design. Your life has a design within the greater design. However, exactly how these designs unfold is in no one’s control because everyone’s free will is determining this.

The number of players affecting how things unfold is beyond imagination, as everyone on earth is a player as well as nonphysical players in other dimensions. Just think: Everyone on earth is a player in your destiny, and you are a player in theirs! It would be even more accurate to say that everyone who has ever lived on earth has been a player in your destiny, but even that doesn’t begin to cover it.

The larger game plan involves players you have never imagined existed, as the Whole within which this unfolding is taking place involves not only Earth, but also other planets within your universe and an infinite number of other universes and dimensions related to those. Fortunately, you don’t need to be aware of or understand anything other than your immediate corner of the universe. That is what you are here for—your particular life and experience.

This life of yours is being guided by extremely wise and benevolent forces. You are in good hands. The hand of Grace is eminently intelligent and wise, far beyond your imagination. And you are honored and loved so deeply, also beyond your imagination. I cannot emphasize this enough. If you only knew how treasured each and every one of you are!

If you don’t know how loved you are, it is more difficult for the hand of Grace to operate in your life. If you are very lost in the Illusion, in believing you are not lovable, not loved, or alone or abandoned by an uncaring world or universe, you won’t be able to take advantage of all the opportunities and abundance available to you. You won’t recognize or be willing to receive what is being offered.

When you are lost in your fears and feelings of not being good enough, the reality you experience is a scary and limited one. You filter out anything that doesn’t fit your negative perspective. You filter out the positive in life and look right past or misinterpret the helping hands, kind words, encouragement, gentle nudges, and out-and-out gifts that life—Grace—is offering you. You fail to see the goodness in life.

When you are lost in the Illusion, nonphysical forces allow you to have that experience until you have had enough and are done choosing it, however unconscious that choice might be. Because they honor your free will, nonphysical forces will not interfere in your choices.

When you are lost, these forces still try to help you see the truth about your situation, but they can only do so much to help you as long as you aren’t asking or looking to them or to others for help. Without their help or the help of others, the primary means of awakening you from the Illusion is the suffering caused by the Illusion itself.

Here are some examples of how Grace operates in people’s lives:

• Your father’s friend helps you get your first job.

• You don’t have the money to go to college, but you’re able to get a loan. (Yes, Grace works through governments and banks too.)

• Your aunt gives you enough money to pay your rent for a few months while you look for a job.

• Your friend needs a roommate at exactly the same time you need a place to live.

• Someone offers you another job just when you were thinking of leaving your old one.

• You always wanted to go to Europe, and then a friend invites you to go along with her family.

• You read about something and realize you’d like to learn more about it.

• You have a health problem, and you run into someone with the same problem who has found some answers.

• You don’t know how to do something, so you search YouTube and find a video that shows you. (The universe provides! But sometimes you have to find your way to those resources, in which case you will be led intuitively.)

• A friend gives you her ticket to a concert because she got sick, and you meet the love of your life there.

These kinds of things happen in everyone’s life—often. How many have happened to you that you simply ignored or said no to or didn’t take full advantage of? Life is made of such opportunities. They come out of the flow regularly. This is life happening to you and for you.

Life is so benevolent that if you miss an opportunity that is significant to your plan’s unfolding, you’ll be presented with it again or with some other opportunity. Life says: “Okay. How about this then?” Grace allows you to make whatever choices you make, all the while presenting you with many possibilities to choose from. These possibilities and all the pointers to them from other people are the hand of Grace in your life. They are not random, meaningless occurrences but a meaningful part of a greater design.

That is not to say that everything that happens to you is part of your design. People have free will, and when they are choosing from their egos, the opportunities or suggestions they offer will not necessarily be aligned with your plan. Egos have their own agendas, which are only sometimes helpful to your plan. Out of the flow come both opportunities from Grace and opportunities from egos, whose free will choices affect you and may influence you in directions not in keeping with your soul’s plan.

The most problematic ego of all is your own. Your egoic programming has its own ideas about how life should unfold, how your life should look, what it wants and needs, and how to go about getting that. Your free will in the hands of your ego instead of surrendered to Grace is the greatest obstacle to taking advantage of what Grace has to offer.

Moment to moment, Grace presents its opportunities and delivers its “instructions” for how to live your life. If you aren’t aware that Grace is doing this, you may miss those opportunities or instructions, which manifest as intuitions and subtle inner drives, urges, impulses, and inspiration. If you are lost in your thoughts, which are your ego’s thoughts, about what you should do and how your life should look, you’ll miss how your life is actually unfolding—right in front of you. Your life is being given to you and being shown to you moment to moment.

Your life is happening to you on its own. But you are free to choose to try to create another life, one the ego imagines or fantasizes about, or one that someone else is living or seems to be living, like on TV. You can live inside your head, in your ideas about yourself and your life, or try to, or you can live the life you are being given.

You are given a particular life to live. You have quite a lot of choice within the life you are given. You even have the choice to reject the life you are given. But you aren’t given the choice to live a completely different life, someone else’s life. People suffer so greatly over not being able to have someone else’s life! They believe they can make their life be anything they want. When they discover they can’t, they are disappointed and angry with life and with themselves. But that suffering is unnecessary. Everyone can find happiness. When you live the life that is meant for you, you will be content. This contentment is how Grace rewards you for saying yes to it and finding your place in the universe. Thank you for being here. I am with you always.
