(continued from last post)
When it knocks it out, it finds out that is not the way to come to God by ego. You must come by the way of humility to God, but because ego has already done the damage of taking upon itself to dominate the lower functions of the body and assert its superiority over humility, Will could not take upon itself and correct it because Will is the next dominant force. Anger, lust, greed are not dominant forces over ego. You see? Will is a dominant force over ego, but he could not do it upon itself. Therefore it had to call upon the I AM-ness. The I AM-ness has to come in and says, “No one lay a hand.” In this whole hierarchy, no one of these functions there take upon themselves the law into their hands to punish ego. “I alone will punish ego” and He branded it. They said, “the mark of Cain was placed upon him apart to sort him out.” So the ego nature would now be recognized as a force to be dealt with from the I AM-ness, but the Will was then given the power by the I AM-ness to redeem the ego. By redeeming the ego, the ego would have to suffer the very same punishment which he administered to the brother humility.
