As I seek to find meaning in old traditions,

to observe Lent in a new way,

I ask deep within how best to move into my High Self?

The answer comes – crystal clear –

Embrace Joy.

Release old traditions, release the Cross;

it was only a vehicle to demonstrate everlasting life.

This message fills me with wonder.

I obey; turning within, I embrace Joy.

I embrace Joy and sense the Power of the Living Christ.

I am God-directed, God- guided, God-led.

Thank you, beloved God.
