40 Days – Day 28

40 Days of Lent – From Release to Embrace

Rule 28

The past is an interpretation. The future is on illusion. The World does not move through time as if it were a straight line, proceeding from the past to the future. Instead, time moves through and within us, in endless spirals. Eternity does not mean infinite time, but simply timelessness. If you want to experience eternal illumination, put the past and the future out of your mind and remain within the present moment.”

Listen to the Rule on Youtube:


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

Our Lent Booklet reminds us today that “the past is past. There is not time but the present. Whatever happened in the past blessed us because it brought us forward to where ewe are now.”  Releasing the past opens the way for the manifestation of the greater good that awaits us.

Today, I invite you to contemplate on Rule No28 and the quote below. Let me know how practicing releasing the past worked for you today. 

Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you. Keep straight the path of your feet, and all your ways will be sure. Proverbs 4:25-26

Today we affirm: I release the past quickly and gracefully to greet my greater good.
