40 Days of Love – Day40+4

40 Days of Letting Go, Letting God

From Release to Embrace


At the link below, you can find the audio recording of all the Rules. You can randomly choose one and contemplate on it. It may bring you some insight or something to let go of today.


Maundy Thursday, the Holy Week

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

Our Lent Booklet invites us today to release anger because it can can consume us, and yet to let it go we must willingly acknowledge its presence. If we attempt to bypass that step on the journey, we allow anger to color our perception of every
area of life. 

Today is Maundy Thursday, a day when we remember the Last Supper. Jesus was a man who could get angry when he wanted to make a point, but not that evening. He humbly washed the feet of his disciples, even Judas. 

I love the story of the feet washing. I cannot imagine a more humble act of loving.


12 When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. “Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them. 13 “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. 14 Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. 15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. 16 Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. 17 Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them. NIV John 13:1-17

Today we affirm: My actions and thoughts are fueled by love

Holy Week or Passion Week   

Holy Week in the Christian year is the week immediately before Easter.

Holy Week begins with the commemoration of Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, marks the betrayal of Jesus on Spy Wednesday (Holy Wednesday), climaxing with the commemoration of the Mystical or Last Supper on Maundy Thursday and the Passion of Jesus on Good Friday. Holy Week concludes with Christ’s rest in death and descent into hell on Holy Saturday.

Christians believe that Jesus rested in death from the ninth hour (3 pm) on Good Friday until just before dawn on Sunday morning, the day of his resurrection from death, commonly known as Easter Sunday.

Holy Week liturgies generally attract the largest crowds of the year. Many Christian cultures have different traditions such as special liturgies or services, floats, sculptures or live reenactments of Christ’s life, his arrest and crucifixion (also called the Lord’s passion, the Passion of Christ or Passion of Jesus)

Looking at the ‘story’ above, what do you think this week could be about in terms of ‘Lifting one’s consciousness?’

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).
