Nothing can reach the Soul from the ego, and nothing from the Soul can strengthen the ego or reduce the conflict within it.
The separate self and God’s Self are in opposition.
They are opposed in creation, in will, and in outcome.
They are fundamentally irreconcilable because the Soul cannot perceive and the ego cannot know.
They are therefore not in communication and can never be in communication.
The Soul need not be taught, but the ego must.
The ultimate reason why learning is perceived as frightening is because learning does lead to the relinquishment (not destruction) of the ego to the light of the Soul.
