To what are we devoted: spirit or ego?

Again,–nothing you do or think or wish or make is necessary to establish your worth. This point is not debatable except in delusions. Your ego is never at stake because God did not create it. Your spirit is never at stake because He did. Any confusion on this point is delusional, and no form of devotion is possible as long as this delusion lasts. T- 4.I.7:6-10

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

This passage in A Course In Miracles is very similar to the statement in the Introduction which is “Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists. Herein lies the peace of God.” This statement captures the key teaching of the metaphysics of A Course In Miracles.

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 doing so we experience an abiding peace, and the struggle to maintain the delusion about the reality of our ego is eliminated.

In Unitarian Universalism we join together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person which abides in their spirit not in their ego.

Today, it is asked to what we are devoted: the spirit or the ego? It is an easy decision once we become aware that we have a choice.
