Leave all illusions behind and reach beyond all attempts of the ego to hold you back. (A Course in Miracles)
“I go before you because I am beyond the ego. Reach, therefore, for my hand because you want to transcend the ego.”
“Our union is the way to renounce the ego in you. The truth in both of us is beyond the ego.”
If there is fear along your journey toward perfect love, it is only the ego trying to reassert itself. It knows that the realization of perfect love, which is also the full realization of your real identity, is its death.
Even after the ego dies, the mind is not diminished. Healing unblocks a sharp and skillful mind capable of effortlessly serving spirit. The healed body becomes healthy, strong, and feels good. Now it is intuition, and not the unobserved mind, which naturally guides you through the dance of a purposeful, enjoyable life.
In the ego’s absence, you no longer see happiness as something that can be found in some life design, situation or accomplishment. You realize that, for all this time, your busy mind has been exhausting you with its thoughts, its to-do lists, its schemes and other meaningless miscreations. Here you have sought but have not found. You have become so tired and so badly in need of healing.
Now egoless, you are conscious. You have transcended. You have been born again. In perfect and effortless joy, your work becomes like the creative play of a child. Your love no less abundant. Your safety no less secure. Embrace the love within you and extend it in freedom to enjoy life right now and always.
