The full acceptance of salvation as your only function necessarily entails two phases; the recognition of salvation as your function, and the relinquishment of all the other goals you have invented for yourself.
Today’s idea offers you escape from all your perceived difficulties. It places the key to the door of peace, which you have closed upon yourself, in your own hands. It gives you the answer to all the searching you have done since time began.
…focus on [the] importance to you [of recognizing salvation as your only function], the relief its acceptance will bring you by resolving your conflicts once and for all, and the extent to which you really want salvation in spite of your own foolish ideas to the contrary.
Complexity and conflict are inevitable as long as we believe in the ego thought system of separation and differences. Nothing in the ego thought system is real. Believing we have to choose between unreal alternatives is confusing and frightening. What is unreal has no meaning of its own. So when we are choosing between unreal alternatives we are trying to choose between made up meanings which are by their nature unstable.
The Course is teaching us that our only meaningful choice is between the real and the unreal. Since the unreal does not exist, this is a choice between everything and nothing. When the true alternative is recognized, the choice is obvious.
Accepting salvation as our only function means making the choice for reality and disregarding the nothingness of the ego thought system. To do this we must learn to recognize the unreality of the ego. For this the Holy Spirit is our Teacher and our Guide to fulfill our only function.
