40 Days of Love – Day22

40 Days of Letting Go, Letting God

From Release to Embrace

Rule 22

“Life is a temporary loan, and this World is nothing but a sketchy imitation of Reality. Only children would mistake a toy for the real thing. And yet human beings either become infatuated with the toy or disrespectfully break it and throw it aside. In this life, stay away from all kinds of extremities, for they will destroy your inner balance. Sufis do not go to extremes. A Sufi always remains mild and moderate.”


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

Our Lent Booklet invites us today to release perfectionism that can prevent us from even starting on our goals because we are afraid that we will fail.

What we are after is progression, not perfection. As we start and make mistake we remind ourselves that we are simply progressing!

A sweet thought to remember: ‘I may not be perfect, but surely, I am complete!’

The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection. Michelangelo

Today we affirm:  I give myself grace with my mistakes,
and I make progress.

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).
