A Modern Look at Fasting and Feasting
In Unity we don’t sacrifice something we love for Lent. Instead, we release and let go of things that don’t serve us and we affirm the things that bless us. We fast from judging or criticizing others, and we feast on seeing the Christ essence in all. We fast from thoughts of illness and feast on thoughts of healing and wholeness. We fast from anger and resentment and feast on love and patience. We fast from bitterness and feast on forgiveness. We fast from self-limiting thoughts and affirm the Truth of who we are, beloveds of the Divine.
We know that what we put our attention on grows, so we are mindful to grow seeds of love, positivity, health, wholeness, harmony, abundance… This time of moving from Winter into Spring is a time of transformation and renewal not only for Mother Nature, but also for us. Bloom where you are planted, for who you are is magnificent.
