40 Days of Love – Day18

40 Days of Letting Go, Letting God

From Release to Embrace

Rule 18

If you want to change the way others treat you, you should first change the way you treat yourself. Unless you learn to love yourself, fully and sincerely, there is no way you can be loved. Once you achieve that stage, however, be thankful for every thorn that others might throw at you. It is a sign that you will soon be showered in roses.“* 


Today, we are releasing fear of illness and embracing God’s Love for us. 

Our Lent Booklet invites us today to release fear of illness and know that life brings forward challenges that we can face knowing that we are never alone in the time of trials.

” Rather than becoming self-absorbed through fear of illness, choose to let go and be absorbed by the self, the infinite love that indwells you. You have a body; however, you are not your body.”

As we focus pray-fully into Oneness, we can release all our concerns and fears into the Source of All. In return, we receive peace and reassurance that all is well, and all is handled  with Grace.

Today I remember: My authentic identity is love itself

Note : My writing is based on the book “40 Rules of Love” by by Elif Shafak (See more about the book here (click)  ( 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).
