While ACIM does not always use every single word in the English language, it does nevertheless speak of various topics in various ways. The meaning of the words is deeper than the words.

Here are some statements about surrendering the ego, even though “surrender” as a word never appears.

“You are not the victim of the world you see because you invented it. You can give it up as easily as you made it up.”

“If you want peace, you must give up the idea of conflict entirely.”

“Be willing to give up the goals you have established for everything.”

“The Holy Spirit guides you into life eternal, but you must relinquish your investment in death, or you will not see life though it is all around you.”

“The sick are healed as you let go of all thoughts of sickness, and the dead are raised when you let thoughts of life replace all thoughts you ever held of death.”

“You cannot really not let go what has already gone.”
“I can escape from the world I see by giving up attack thoughts.”

“It is crucial to your learning to be willing to give up the goals you have established for everything. The recognition that they are meaningless, rather than "good" or "bad," is the only way to accomplish this. ”

“He can learn this only as he actually does give up the valueless.”

“What you give up is merely the illusion of protecting illusions.”

“I can give up but what was never real”

“If they cannot coexist in peace, and if you want peace, you must give up the idea of conflict entirely and for all time”

“Go on to meet them gladly, and learn how much awaits you for the simple willingness to give up nothing because it is nothing.”

“And He Himself will place a spark of truth within your mind wherever you give up a false belief, a dark illusion of your own reality and what love means.”

“ I would give up my insane wishes and walk into the sunlight”

“But the experience of freedom and of peace that comes as you give up your tight control of what you see speaks for itself.”

“Where all reality has been withdrawn from what was never true, can it be hard to give it up, and choose what must be true”

“Give up this frantic and insane attempt that cheats you of the joy of living with your God and Father, and of waking gladly to His Love and Holiness that join together as the truth in you, making you one with Him.”

“A teacher of God gives up his own judgement.”

“It has never really entered your mind to give up every idea you ever had that opposes knowledge.”

“You are not the victim of the world you see because you invented it. You can give it up as easily as you made it up.”

“Guidance is evaluative, because it implies there is a right way and also a wrong way, one to be chosen and the other to be avoided. 3 By choosing one you give up the other”
