Today let us review these ideas:

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

2I have no function but the one God gave me. 3This recognition releases me from all conflict, because it means I cannot have conflicting goals. 4With one purpose only, I am always certain what to do, what to say and what to think. 5All doubt must disappear as I acknowledge that my only function is the one God gave me.

2. 1More specific applications of this idea might take these forms:

2My perception of this does not change my function.
3This does not give me a function other than the one God gave me.
4Let me not use this to justify a function God did not give me.

3. 1(66) My happiness and my function are one.

2All things that come from God are one. 3They come from Oneness, and must be received as one. 4Fulfilling my function is my happiness because both come from the same Source. 5And I must learn to recognize what makes me happy, if I would find happiness.

4. 1Some useful forms for specific applications of this idea are:

2This cannot separate my happiness from my function.
3The oneness of my happiness and my function re­mains wholly unaffected by this.
4Nothing, including this, can justify the illusion of happiness apart from my function.
