Can we overcome ego with gratitude?

Posted on May 1, 2011 in Ask Divine Mother

Question:  Can we overcome ego with gratitude?

Divine Mother:  This is a beautiful question. That is just it: gratitude. When someone gives you a gift or a compliment, the answer is “Thank you”. The words “thank you” are supposed to elicit a surrender, a letting go. You are turning the attention back to them, rather than saying, “Oh yes, I deserve this gift”. That is one of the many mechanisms for staying in the surrendered state. I talked about how it gets to a point where the mental body builds so many structures that it gets totally confused and has to surrender. This is a technique for staying there: gratitude to the master or gratitude to Divine Mother, just saying, “Thank you”.

When you say these things, it is not so much about the words as about what happens inside of you. The words can be hollow. The significance is what you are doing inside. Are you letting go? Is the gratitude real? When you say “thank you”, you are actually thanking God. God has given you this gift, not the person. You are saying thank you to God and that is what causes the surrender to God.

Jesus Christ said, “All that I do, I do in the name of God.” The inner surrender that occurred when he said that is the key. It is always about the inner surrender, and the words elicit that. That is the technique: a constant letting go. The more people applaud you, the bigger your letting go. The big letting go’s give you a tremendous union with God. You let go deeper and the connection becomes deeper.

If you are in front of an audience of 10,000 people and they are cheering you, let go. They are really cheering and yelling for God. Perhaps your creativity has inspired in them the joy in God. You always surrender. That is why masters reference their guru or they reference the Infinite. It is what they are doing on the inside.

You can sense it. You can sense it when someone is not allowing the gift to be given and the ego is saying, “I am the great one”. You will know. In those times, you may want to let go for them. They need your help. That is a beautiful point. Thank you for bringing up that point.

The ego can get stuck on things. It can get stuck on its belief systems. It gets stuck on everything. It's only when you can let go that you are not in the ego. It gets stuck on being right or wrong. It gets stuck on being arrogant or being a victim. It gets stuck on everything. So it is the letting go, the giving up, the softening into it that is the most significant thing to keep you in the flow of the Love and the Truth.

It doesn't mean that you shouldn't say what you know is true. Then you let go of that. If someone is telling you a lie, you say what you know is true and let go of it, because the Truth needs to be let go of so that it can resurge as structure.

The Divine Truth, the Infinite Truth is structuring your lives now. There is structure going on when you start letting go. The structure is being built from the wave of Infinite Wholeness that moves into the relative field as a flow of Divine Truth and then builds your life, builds your health. Divine Truth -- that you are Whole and One with all that is -- when it builds health, it builds the body into the recognition of it Wholeness and Oneness, where truly it is invincible to disease. When the body is recognizing its Wholeness and Oneness all the time, disease will not be able to get a foothold.

Also it is building a life of Truth where you live your life in the recognition of the unity of all that is, so you operate that way. When you operate that way, you treat people very differently, because you are treating yourself. It is a whole different structure that is being built in everyone. But now, instead of the guesswork of the ego building the structure, the true identity, the Infinite is building the structure, so it is powerful and beautiful. That is actually the new structure that is being built for the planet. Thank you for your very active participation in this.

Important to let go.
Death is gateway to purifying yourself.
Daily, we die many times
Rebirth to a new
Self
By the second
By the minute
By the hour
By the day
By the week
Cycle after cycle
Until we completely let go
Surrender..
Letting all things go
Until
Transformation ends
Moving to another dimension
To join with greater god selves
Onward to another form
Cycle after endless cycle…
Letting go
Surrendering…

Remember…
We own nothing…
We have nothing at birth
We share while letting go
We take nothing at death.
Letting all things go
recognizing it is temporary..
Long enough to give you an experience..
All things come…
All things go…
Surrender as if you are leaving..
You own nothing
You borrow
You let go
You die
You are
Reborn
