What is the precise technique you use to undo the ego?

Question:
What is the precise technique you used to undo the ego?

Answer:
There is a way to recognize the ego. In all ways, shapes and forms, the ego belief says: There is causation in form. For example: "You hurt my feelings. You make me mad." Things that we learned as little children: "My sister got more than I did." It also relates to all of the disciplines and sciences. For every action, there is a reaction. There are causes in the world and effects of those causes; causes and consequences. The Course retrains your mind to see that your mind is causative. The form is never causative. The form is a false effect of a false cause. The false cause is the ego. The ego is the belief that the separation from God is real, and the world of appearances arises to witness to that belief. So as you practice the Workbook lessons, the false causation is undone. The ego says, “Eat too much food and you will be fat. “Exercise, and you will be thin.” The ego says, “Eat these foods and you will be sick.” and “Eat those foods and you will be healthy. Food is not causative! Exercise is not causative! Pills and medicine are not causative! The sun cannot make you hot. It is all thought.

Your mind is not at the mercy of the world. It is limited by ego thoughts. As you release the ego thoughts, your mind is free and limitless. Jesus demonstrated this 2,000 years ago, calming the seas, saying things like,”If you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you can move mountains." The mind is moving all of the planets and spheres! It is that powerful. Helen Schucman once asked Jesus, “What is the relationship between astrology and the lives of men and women, if everything is a choice of mind?” Jesus said, “Your mind is so powerful, it is moving all the people around, and beyond that, all of the planets and spheres.” That is powerful! So, you start to realize, as "A Course in Miracles" teaches,”I am responsible for what I see. I choose the feelings I experience, and I decide the goal I would achieve. And everything that seems to happen to me, I ask for and receive as I have asked." Nothing is by accident. Nothing is random. The mind calls forth witnesses to what it believes, so we are back to questioning the beliefs to be free. It is very empowering. When you follow the Course, you are no longer at the mercy of the world. You see that you are not a small human being in a vast world. You see that the world is in your mind. It is a reflection of your thoughts. As you change your mind, the world you see changes as well. As within, so without. And enlightenment shows there is no within or without. One mind cannot be split, even into inner and outer. In God's love, all is one.
