Be of Good Cheer

 I will substitute for your ego if you wish, but never for your spirit. A father
can safely leave a child with an elder brother who has shown himself
responsible, but this involves no confusion about the child’s origin. The
brother can protect the child’s body and his ego, but he does not confuse
himself with the father because he does this. I can be entrusted with your
body and your ego only because this enables you not to be concerned with
them, and lets me teach you their unimportance. I could not understand their
importance to you if I had not once been tempted to believe in them myself.

Let us undertake to learn this lesson together so we can be free of them
together. I need devoted teachers who share my aim of healing the mind.
Spirit is far beyond the need of your protection or mine. Remember this:
In this world you need not have tribulation because I have
overcome the world. That is why you should be of good cheer.
