Withdraw attachment to the ego and join with the Divine Force which animates the universe.

Judgment, like any other defense, can be used to attack or protect; to hurt or to heal. The ego should be brought to judgment and found wanting there. Without your own allegiance, protection and love, the ego cannot exist. Let it be judged truly and you must withdraw allegiance, protection and love from it. T-4.IV.8: 7 - 10

The Buddha taught that the cause of suffering is attachment. The greatest attachment of all is to our ego. A Course In Miracles is a mind training manual which encourages its students to give up their attachment to their egos in favor of becoming one with the Divine. This “mind control,” this change in focus takes recognition, acknowledgment, intention, and action. Can we give up our willfulness and turn it over? Can we move from conditional “give to get” functioning to unconditional love and let things be?

Today, it is suggested that we join with the Unitarian Universalists and practice their fourth principle which is the free and responsible search for truth and meaning. Truth and meaning is not to be found in the idols of the ego. Truth and meaning is to be found in the Divine force that animates the universe.
