40 Days – Day 40

40 Days of Lent – From Release to Embrace

Rule 40

A life without Love is of no account. Don’t ask yourself what kind of love you should seek, spiritual or material, divine or mundane, Eastern or Western. Divisions only lead to more divisions. Love has no labels, no definitions. It is what it is, pure and simple. Love is the water of life. And a lover is a soul of fire! The universe turns differently when fire loves water.”

Listen to the Rule on Youtube:


Today, we are  tuly releasing and letting go and embracing God’s Love for us. 


Our Lent Booklet reminds us today that in Jesus’ death we observe the death of all old ideas and outdated beliefs. Like Mary and the disciples after Jesus’ demise, we feel lost not knowing what would happen next. It is a waiting and of uncertainty. 

We pause in stillness, we experience the void then let it go. In that we trust that the flame of home in our hearts will be rekindled.

Today, I invite you to contemplate on Rule No40 and the quote below. Let me know how practicing ‘truly releasing and letting go in the silence’ worked for you today. 

For God alone my soul waits in silence, for my hope is from him. Psalm 62:5

Today we affirm: I let go and look ahead with hope.
