I fast, letting go of all I am not

By March 6, 2019 March 7th, 2019 Easter and Lent, Thought for the week

“I fast, letting go of all I am not.
I feast on the truth of all that I AM.”

The season of Lent is once more upon us, beginning this Wednesday, 6th March.

Lent is traditionally a time of denial or fasting, established by the early Christian Church, to prepare for Easter and the resurrection.

In Unity we are encouraged to fast from all that we want to let go of in our thinking. Charles Fillmore, our co-founder, suggested using this time to release negative thoughts and feelings so we can wake up to the abundance of life around us. This was done through denying the power of something over us, to make way for the Power at work through us.

When we do this consciously and with focused awareness, a shift happens. We make space to know God, see God and be the witness of God.

This Lent, join us in daily fasting so we can feast on the truth – that all of God is with and within us in every moment, to be the experience of abundance, life, joy, compassion and peace.
