Part 1

Undoing the Way We See Things Now

Lesson 83

Today let us review these ideas:

1. (65) My only function is the one God gave me.

     I have no function but the one God gave me. This recognition releases me from all conflict, because it means I cannot have conflicting goals. With one purpose only, I am always certain what to do, say, and think. All doubt must disappear as I acknowledge that my only function is the one God gave me.

2. More specific applications of this idea might take these forms:

My perception of this does not change my function.

This does not give me a function other than the one God gave me.

Let me not use this to justify a function God did not give to me.

3. (66) My happiness and my function are one.

     All things that come from God are one. They come from Oneness and must be received as one. Fulfilling my function is my happiness because both come from the same Source. And I must learn to recognize what makes me happy if I would find happiness.

4. Some useful forms for specific applications of this idea are:

This cannot separate my happiness from my function.

The oneness of my happiness and my function remains wholly unaffected by this.

Nothing, including this, can justify the illusion of happiness apart from my function.[1]

Personal Notes:

“My only function is the one God Gave me.” The idea for today reaffirms our commitment to salvation and reminds us we have no other function. Knowing our only function is the one God gave us is the only way to find peace of mind. It offers escape from all perceived difficulties and places the key to the door to peace in our hand. I have no function but the one God gave me. This recognition releases me from all conflict. With one purpose only, I am always certain what to do, what to say, and what to think. All doubt must disappear as I acknowledge that my only function is the one God gave me. My function is to Always share love, peace, and joy.  “My happiness and my function are one.” The ego does constant battle with Holy Spirit on the fundamental question of what our function is and what our happiness is. This is Not a two-way battle, the ego attacks and Holy Spirit does not respond, He knows what our function is and is the Source of our happiness. They come from Oneness and must be received as one. Fulfilling my function is my happiness because they both come from the same source. God will show me my function and gives me all power and ability to fulfill it, because this is God’s will. God’s will and my will are One! I pray for all my brothers, sisters, and myself for continued guidance, wisdom, discernment, protection and illumination of purpose in The Way, The Truth, The Life in Christ Jesus, Amen. Thank you for sharing with me. Walk in Love my friend!

God is Love

Love is God
