“All attitudes are ego based. Fear is the essential mood of the ego. The ego is the mind’s belief that it is completely on its own. Ego and love cannot exist together.
You are mirrors of truth in which God Himself shines in perfect light. To the ego’s dark glass you need but say, ‘I will not look there because I know these images are not true.’ Then let the Holy One shine on you in peace, knowing that this and only this must be. His Mind shone on you in your creation and brought your mind into being. His Mind still shines on you and must shine through you. Your ego cannot prevent Him from shining on you, but it can prevent you from letting Him shine through you.” ACIM Chapter 4, V.65.
