40 Days of Love – Day4

40 Days of Letting Go, Letting God

From Release to Embrace

Rule 4

Intellect and Love are made of different materials. Intellect ties people in knots and risks nothing, but love dissolves all tangles and risks everything. Intellect is always cautious and advises, ‘Beware too much ecstasy,’ whereas Love says, ‘Oh, never mind! Take the plunge!’ Intelligence does not easily break down, whereas Love can effortlessly reduce itself to rubble. But treasures are hidden among ruins. A broken heart hides treasures.


Today, we are releasing sorrow and embracing God’s Love for us. 

Our Lent Booklet Invites us today to reminded that the only way out of a sense of loss and sorrow is to walk through it. As we release those we have lost, we experience grief but are also left with precious memories. Today, we remember, that the pain fades with our releasing our loved ones into Love’s embrace, into eternal life. Our positive memories create a living legacy for them. 

I will turn their mourning into joy, I will comfort them,
and give them gladness for sorrow.—Jeremiah 31:13

Today we affirm:  I let go into the very presence of God’s love
within me, and I am made whole and well and free

Note : My writing is based on the book “40 Rules of Love” by by Elif Shafak and The Lent booklet by Unity.org 

Personally, I think it is important to find the True meaning behind the word ‘LOVE’,  understand it and experience it as a Spiritual Quality inherently within us. 

I am going to walk this 40-day Lenten journey contemplating on the True meaning of Love, Divine Love, Spiritual Love for me by experimenting with the 40 rules and quotes from the Lent Booklet. Every day, between 

the 14th of February and the 28th of March 2024,

I will post a ‘rule’ from the book ’40 rules of Love’ and an a release idea from the book ’40 days of Let go, Let God – Lent 2024′ by Unity.org. Then, we will contemplate on it and share about it in the UNITY EUROPE Facebook Group (CLICK HERE).
