Contemplation Day37

40 Days of Letting Go, Letting God

From Release to Embrace

Rule 37

God is a meticulous dock maker. So precise is His order that everything on earth happens in its own time — neither a minute late nor a minute early. And for everyone without exception, the clock works accurately. For each, there is a time to love and a time to die.”


Today we affirm: I live a life of vibrancy and joy. 

Today’s rule is so ‘precise’ again. Whatever I experience at any given moment in time is in perfect order, or in Divine Order. Only attitude makes it hard. When in apathy for example, though it maybe hard to see, it is simply a choice that we make in response to what is happening in our lives.

If we could just move into the flow of life allowing it to bring forth the different experiences we ‘need’ to have, they would pass quicker and we could move to greener pastures. But because we fight life by placing ‘judgements’ and ‘attitudes’ on our life experiences, we are actually holding onto things we do not want. 

When I am upset about an experience I am having, by being upset about it, I am actually lengthening the time, this experience is staying in my life by keep on feeding this experience with a ‘negative attitude’ (anger). 

Every moment offers a choice. The best choice however is knowing that all is OK, and by not resisting what is going on in our lives, we actually let it pass quicker. 

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

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.
