Dwell in peace of Spirit.

You are part of reality, which stands unchanged beyond the reach of your ego but within easy reach of spirit. When you are afraid, be still and know that God is real, and you are His beloved Son in whom He is well pleased. Do not let your ego dispute this, because the ego cannot know what is as far beyond its reach as you are. T-4.1.8:5-7

A Course in Miracles . Foundation for Inner Peace. Kindle Edition. 

You are a child of the universe which is beyond any ego which wants you to forget this fact and therefore engenders fear about what would happen with the ego’s loss. How attached to the ego are you?

In Alcoholics Anonymous it is suggested, in step three, that we make a decision to turn our willfulness over to the will of God. In other words, step three is suggesting that we eschew our ego in favor of Spirit thereby giving up fear for the peace of God.

In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person which arises not from our ego but from our natural inheritance which is the unconditional love of God.

Today, it is suggested that we get real and give up our ego. To do this we simply need to be quiet and dwell in the peace of Spirit.
