C 8: V. The Undivided Will of the Sonship, P 4

V. The Undivided Will of the Sonship, P 4

4 When you unite with me you are uniting without the ego, because I have renounced the ego in myself and therefore cannot unite with yours. Our union is therefore the way to renounce the ego in you. The truth in both of us is beyond the ego. Our success in transcending the ego is guaranteed by God, and I share this confidence for both of us and all of us. I bring God’s peace back to all His children because I received it of Him for us all. Nothing can prevail against our united wills because nothing can prevail against God’s.


In this section, Jesus is really making it clear that together we will transcend the ego. It is very simple, really. Jesus transcended the ego and now helps us to do what he has already done. He has total confidence in us because he knows we will succeed as he did. I used to doubt myself, but Jesus held steadfast in his certainty and so he knew for me what I doubted. Now I have no doubt whatsoever that I will return my mind to God because I have joined my will with his and nothing can prevail against us because nothing can prevail against God.

While I still become distracted and still get hooked by ego sometimes, I never lose sight of the goal. I might become angry with someone, but I never want to stay angry. I never argue for my anger. I might make the other one guilty in my mind, but I change my mind. Even while I am temporarily angry, I am asking that the belief my brother is guilty be removed from my mind. This is how it is for me now. I look forward to the day the desire to blame cannot even find a foothold in my mind, no matter how tenuous.

I don’t doubt that day will come because I don’t doubt God. I don’t doubt the Holy Spirit. And I don’t doubt Jesus’ plan of Atonement. I don’t even doubt myself anymore. Jesus transcended the ego and through joining my will with his, he will transcend it again through me. And in perfect timing he will do so through each of us until, as one, we will return to our Father.
