40 Days of Love – Day8

40 Days of Letting Go, Letting God

From Release to Embrace

Rule 8

Patience does not mean to endure passively. It means to look at the end of a process. What does tolerance mean? It means to look at the thorn and see the rose, to look at the night, and see the dawn. Impatience means to be shortsighted as not to be able to see the outcome. The lovers of God never run out of patience, for they know that time is needed for the crescent moon to become full.“* 


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

Our Lent Booklet invites us today to release resistance and flow with life.  I remember today a saying that I heard a long time ago: ” What you resist persist.” There reason why that happens is that resistance adds energy to the very things we don’t want. 

Instead of resistance we can move into the flow of life and gain an understanding of the underlying belief that created the unwanted situation. Resistance can show up in different ways. Sometimes, I want to avoid becoming aware of a behaviour that is destructive. Other times, I am in resistance to an experience, simply because it is uncomfortable. I learnt through out my life, that I cannot avoid these ‘learning moments’ and I had better move with the events at hand. After I have moved through them, I can release the limiting beliefs and cultivate a healthy spiritual practice of cleansing untruthful thoughts and turn them around to focus on Truth of Life.

Taoism is the Path of Least Resistance to Overcome Any Obstacle. The concept of flow, or Wu Wei, heavily advocates paying attention to nature and almost imitating how it functions, and how it flows. Taoism suggests that we should not try to swim against the current, as seems to be the way in Western society, but instead simply let the current take us where it pleases. Source

“Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.” -Lao Tzu

Today we affirm: I hold a supportive thought of  the Truth of Life.

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).
