Contemplation Day15

40 Days of Letting Go, Letting God

From Release to Embrace

Rule 15

It’s easy to love a perfect God, unblemished and infallible that He is. What is far more difficult is to love fellow human beings with all their imperfections and defects. Remember, one can only know what one is capable of loving. There is no wisdom without love. Unless we learn to love God’s creation, we can neither truly love nor truly know God.“* 


Today’s affirmation: I am not the person I was conditioned to be.
I live in the wild abandon of Spirit.

As I was contemplating on Rule No15 and today’s Lent message, I realized that …

Most of my life I looked at overwhelm as a result of other’s ‘behaving irresponsibly’ . I did not realize that I had been conditioned to become a carer. This conditioning and the underlying beliefs would attract ‘cases’ where my caring nature were required. Eventually, I resented the people whom I found ‘weak’ and in need of my support.

Through the rocky journey of self-discovery and spiritual unfoldment, I realized that nobody is at fault here. It is my responsibility to release and let of old beliefs that do not work for me. 

I am open to see God’s creation in everything and everyone now. 

What did you discover by contemplation on this rule and Lent reading?

in Loving and with many Blessings,

Please note that though I may use ‘him’ or ‘his’ pronouns to talk about God/the Divine, it is only because the English language does not have a gender neutral pronoun. ‘They’ sounds odd to me to use and ‘it’ sounds lifeless.
