Hi,

Below is some extremely difficult text from A course in Miracles.

*** ***

If he speaks from his Soul, he has chosen to “be still and know that I am God.” These words are inspired, because they come from KNOWLEDGE. If he speaks from his ego, he is DISCLAIMING knowledge instead of AFFIRMING it, and is thus dis-spiriting himself. The dis-spirited have no choice BUT to be narcissistic, and to be narcissistic IS to place your faith in the unworthy. Your real worth IS your divine authorship, and your Soul is its acknowledgement. I cannot guide your egos EXCEPT as you associate them with your Souls.

*** ***

From previous paragraphs, we may understand "divine authorship" as "God created the world and all the people".

The underlined part.... Is it allowed at least grammatically to understand this part to be of the meaning: "Your real worth comes from the fact that God created yourself and your Soul is what the divine authorship acknowledges"?

And "you associate them with your Souls." means "you connect(or link) your egos with your Souls"?

That's the way I'd take it.
"Except as" is a little bit special.

It could mean "I cannot guide your egos UNLESS you associate them with your Souls."

OR It could mean "I can only guide your egos TO THE EXTENT THAT you associate them with your Souls."

In my opinion, yes.
