"To lift the veil that seems so dark and heavy, it is only needful to value truth beyond all fantasy, and to be entirely unwilling to settle for illusion in place of truth."
ACIM chapter 16

Another great quote.
It always seemed to me that if anything is valuable, it's truth. And ultimate truth will be ultimate value.

Occasionally when the ego kicks in, whimpering in fear about losing its individual existence, I think about how yes, that seems scary, but if that existence is not true? No matter how desirable something seems from this viewpoint, if it's not true, I don't want it.
(And of course if it should turn out that individual existence is true, then it can't be destroyed, and there's nothing to fear.)
