40 Days of Love – Day33

40 Days of Letting Go, Letting God

From Release to Embrace

Rule 33

While everyone in this World strives to get somewhere and become someone, only to leave it all behind after death, you aim for the highest stage of nothingness. Live this life as light and empty as the number zero. We are no different from a pot. It is not the decorations outside, but the emptiness inside that holds us straight. Just like that, it is not what we aspire to achieve but the consciousness of nothingness that keeps us going.”


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

Our Lent Booklet invites us today to release the need to be right. Rev Ellen Debenport invites us to consider Jesus’ example when he is faced with Herod and Pilate. Jesus never explains himself or claims to be right. He always claimed to be a messenger but not the source of ‘all knowing’.

Often, it seems to me, that when we strongly believe in something we want everyone to believe in the same thing, partly to have company, partly because we want others to be happy. However, we often go about it in a way that we appear to be a ‘know it all’ or someone who is ‘right’. That is when arguments usually start.

Looking at Jesus’ example we can see that when we are firmly planted in a belief we neither need company, nor would we want to be right.

The wise man is one who knows what he does not know.  Lao Tzu

Today we affirm:  I release my need to be right

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).
