Lesson 83 – Review 13

‘My only function is the one God gave me.’

I have no function but the one God gave me. The 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, what to say and what to think. All doubts must disappear as I acknowledge that my only function is the one God gave me.
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 me.

 ‘My happiness and my function are one.’

All things that come from God are one. They come from Oneness, and must receive as one. Fulfilling my function is my happiness because both come from the same Source. And I must learn to recognise what makes me happy, if I would find happiness.
Some useful forms for specific applications of this idea are:

This cannot separate my happiness from my function.
Nothing, including this, can justify the illusion of happiness apart from my function.

 This was the lesson I have to work with all day at the Black Writers Conference in Manchester. I’m going to write another blog specifically about the conference but as regards this lesson, I was ecstatic to be in the presence of other writers all day.

 I (unintentionally) sold three books and a CD. One of the first women I met told me she’d seen my book on facebook and that whoever had posted it said it was a ‘must read’. I had to go out to the car to get her a copy. I brought two in case anyone else asked, and the gentleman who was sitting at the table by then took that one. Later, a friend bought a copy and a gentleman, who said he’d got too many unread books bought a copy of RAW Vols 1 and 2.

 If my only function is to write, I’d be happy, but my aim is to be happy with whatever I’m required to do each day.
