40 Days – Day 12

40 Days of Lent – From Release to Embrace

Rule 12

There are more fake gurus and false teachers in this world than the number of stars in the visible universe. Don’t confuse power-driven, self-centered people with true mentors. A genuine spiritual master will not direct your attention to himself or herself and will not expect absolute obedience or utter admiration from you, but instead will help you to appreciate and admire your inner self. True mentors are as transparent as glass. They let the light of God pass through them.“* 

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

Our Lent Booklet reminds us today that discontent can have many faces. Every experiences we have however is there to carry a message for us. What if, just on the
other side of discontent, a more profound love lies, waiting to pour
through us and into the world?  Discontent can serve as a catalyst for growth. If we are willing to learn the wisdom it contains.

Today, I invite you to contemplate on Rule No12 and the quote below. Let me know how practicing releasing discontent worked for you today. 

I have learned to be content with whatever I have. I know
what it is to have little, and I know what it is to have plenty.
Philippians 4:11-12

Today we affirm: Through spiritual understanding, I follow the divine wisdom
available in every moment of my life.
