40 Days of Love – Day7

40 Days of Letting Go, Letting God

From Release to Embrace

Rule 7

Whatever happens in your life, no matter how troubling things might seem, do not enter the neighborhood of despair. Even when all doors remain closed, God will open up a new path only for you. Be thankful! It is easy to be grateful when all is well. A Sufi is thankful not only for what he has been given but also for all that he has been denied.”* 


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

Our Lent Booklet invites us today to release

We live in an ever changing fast world that is full of opportunities for us to feel stressed and overwhelmed. I sometimes react to unexpected situations with a sense of stress or even anxiety. 

Though I often cannot change the circumstances of an event, I can still chose my reaction to the external situations.

Life is not the sum of random events but a permanent and continuous offer of possibilities to grow and evolve. I can assume that stressful moments are blessed opportunities to find stillness and peace within. 

I can chose to retrieve and move into my sacred inner sanctuary where I can connect the peace and stillness of the divine Presence. By. In doing so, agitation subsides, disturbing thoughts relax, emotions become calm and serene. The peace of Spirit blesses me.

“To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.” Lao Tzu

“Returning to the source is stillness, which is the way of nature. The way of nature is unchanging knowing constancy is insight.” Lao Tzu

Today we affirm:  I give thanks for every opportunity
to grow and evolve


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).
