40 Days of Love – Day20

40 Days of Letting Go, Letting God

From Release to Embrace

Rule 20

We were all created in His image, and yet we were each created different and unique. No two people are alike. No hearts beat to the same rhythm. If God had wanted everyone to be the same, He would have made it so. Therefore, disrespecting differences and imposing your thoughts on others is tantamount to disrespecting God’s holy scheme.”


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

Our Lent Booklet invites us today to release misunderstanding that is often caused by childhood programing of what is right and what is wrong or what is favourable and what isn’t. This programming puts on a path of assumptions where no questions are asked. When we base our judgements of a situation or a person entirely on assumptions, we can end up with a lot of misunderstandings, hurt feelings, and confusion.

“If we could release our preconceived thoughts about situations, how much more love and compassion could flow freely into our lives?”

Today, we can stop before assuming and ask for clarification. Instead of confusion, we can increase our awareness and open our hearts to understanding.

If people misunderstand you, do not worry…it is your voice that they hear, but what goes through their mind is…their own thoughts. Rumi

Today we affirm:  I release my preconceived beliefs to seek clarity and compassion.

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).
