Lent is known as time of spiritual purification and solemnity.
Typically, it’s marked by giving something up, to discipline and provide control over oneself to purify the heart and renew ones life. In recent years, I’ve forgone giving up simple physical pleasures such as chocolate or liquor, and chosen to give up deliberately intense things such as: Fear. Deliberately seeking the things that frighten me (within reason) and doing them. The result: Fear, anxiety, rejection no longer control me. I am free.
This year, I have chosen to actively accept Love in all forms. It is surprising and sometimes disconcerting facing my inner dialogue regarding Love. But, as I found when I faced Fear, I became more Fearless; when accepting Love, I’ve become more Loving. There is absolutely something to the law of attraction when it is truly taken to heart, as opposed to merely employed as a mental construct. Allowing love, and receiving love, I was surprised by these lovely roses delivered to my door.
So, my Friends, I urge all of you to look deeply into your hearts at the things you may be resisting, and go there. Maybe a little discipline and a inner reflection is all that is needed for profound and uplifting change in your life.
