40 Days – Day 35

40 Days of Lent – From Release to Embrace

Rule 35

In this World, it is not similarities or regularities that take us a step forward, but blunt opposites. And all the opposites in the universe are present within each and every one of us. Therefore the believer needs to meet the unbeliever residing within. And the nonbeliever should get to know the silent faithful in him. Until the day one reaches the stage of Insane-I Kamil, the perfect human being, faith is a gradual process and one that necessitates its seeming opposite: disbelief.”

Listen to the Rule on Youtube:


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

Our Lent Booklet reminds us today that sorrow is not something to fight but to embrace. It reminds us losses and carries a message from Jesus about solace that resides within us as we connect with the Divine Presence. When we live from our divinity we recognize joy even in the midst of sorrow. As we release sorrow we bask in the glory of living with joy. 

Today, I invite you to contemplate on Rule No35 and the quote below. Let me know how practicing releasing sorrow worked for you today. 

For everything there is a season, and a time for every
matter under heaven. Ecclesiastes 3:1

Today we affirm: I live vibrantly from my joyful spirit.
