40 Days – Day 16

40 Days of Lent – From Release to Embrace

Rule 16

Real filth is the one inside. The rest simply washes off. There is only one type of dirt that cannot be cleansed with pure waters, and that is the stain of hatred and bigotry contaminating the soul. You can purify your body through abstinence and fasting, but only love will purify your heart.”* 

Listen to the Rule on YOUTUBE:


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

Our Lent Booklet reminds us today that loneliness is a sense of lack or yearning. Instead we can  allow possibilities to emerge. We can remember that we are always connected to others in the flow of life. It is impossible to feel alone when one is connected to Spirit that is always in and around us. 

Today, I invite you to contemplate on Rule No16 and the quote below. Let me know how practicing releasing loneliness worked for you today. 

Do not fear, for I am with you, do not be afraid, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my
victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10

Today we affirm:  From the infinite, eternal, abundant Source,
I receive inspiration and absolute love.
