40 Days of Love – Day2

40 Days of Letting Go, Letting God

From Release to Embrace

Introduction to 40 Days of Lent – From Release to Embrace

Rule 2

The path to the Truth is a labor of the heart, not of the head. Make your heart your primary guide! Not your mind. Meet, challenge, and ultimately prevail over your nafs (false ego) with your heart. Knowing your false ego will lead you to the Knowledge of God.


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

Our Lent Booklet invites us today to release and let go of resentment. Resentment keeps us in the past because we are holding onto some past grievances. With that, we keep the bittiness of old wounds present and alive. As you look at the root of the word, you can see how it works: ‘ re-sense’ or ‘feel again’, we recycle the negative emotions attached to an event that happened in the past. These negative thoughts and emotions form block in the way of our well-being, personal and spiritual upliftment. 

What we can do is move into prayer. Through prayer and/or prayerful meditation we move our consciousness more in alignment of the Greatest Love of the Divine Present. With that we find that we can forgive, heal and let go.

The willingness to let go of resentment allows God/Divine Presence within to do the rest, healing mind, body, and soul.

Today, I invite you to contemplate on the Rule No2 and the quote below. Let me know how practicing releasing resentment worked for you. 

” … unforgiveness, bitterness and resentment, it blocks the flows of God’s blessings in life.”  Ja Rule

Today we affirm: I let go of old grievances and allow God’s love
to heal my body, mind, and spirit.

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).
