40 Days – Day 25

40 Days of Lent – From Release to Embrace

Rule 25

Each reader comprehends the Holy Qur’an on a different level of tandem with the depth of his understanding. There are four levels of insight. The first level is the outer meaning, and it is the one that the majority of the people are content with. Next is the Batin — the inner level. Third, there is the innermost of the internal. And the fourth level is so deep it cannot be put into words and is, therefore, bound to remain indescribable.”

Listen to the Rule on Youtube:


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

Our Lent Booklet reminds us today that we often allow our obligations to run our lives. As a result we lose ourselves in the lists of obligations and lose touch with the Flow of Life in the present moment. “Life unfolds like a beautiful flower.” As we allow ourselves to pause we become part of the unfolding.

Today, I invite you to contemplate on Rule No25 and the quote below. Let me know how practicing releasing obligation worked for you today. 

It is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24

Today we affirm: I am present here and now. I honor this beautiful moment of life.
