Mother’s Questions & Answers, February 8, 1956
Mother speaks about the illusion of separate personality which is really the functioning of the individual ego. She explains that our thoughts, feelings, decisions and reactions come from our environment, our parents and remote ancestors, and from what has built up in is with the impressions we have accumulated in ourselves throughout the course of our life. We believe that we are separate beings, but no aspect of our being is actually isolated. Not only our thoughts and emotions, but even our physical substance is mixed with similar parts of the people around us. One must think spherically to perceive this. This week the original French recording of the class is not available.
