“Dynamic Lent: A New Insight” by Eric Butterworth

Written by on February 25, 2020

Every year in late February or early March, the Lenten season begins.  It is, or can be, a marvelous experience in self-improvement.  In a way, Lent is coincidental with spring, the season of new growth in nature.  The trees and flowers are not content with the blooms of last year.  And if we are in the flow of the creative process, we experience divine discontent, in which we feel both the possibility and the need for growth…..

 

 

 

 

 

Lent can be a dynamic experience if it is approached with the will toward honest self-examination, self-discipline, and self-commitment.  

Whether or not you follow the observance of Lent, consider its metaphysical application.  Turn from the simple act of giving up things to a more positive commitment to TAKE UP the practice of high-level thinking…Form the habit of reaching for the highest point of view in all your dealings…

If you have been letting things get you down, take up the idea that you are the master of your thought world.  No matter what people say or do, no matter what may happen around you, take up the idea, “Why should I let these things determine how I am going to think or act?”  Keep the spirit of joy, the attitude of gratitude, in good times and bad…

Lent can be a dynamic experience, not by what you give up as much as by what you TAKE UP...It can be a time of great believing, leading to great overcoming and great living!

Reverend Eric Butterworth (1916-2003) remains among the leading spokespersons in modern times on “practical mysticism.”  He is considered a legend and spiritual icon in the Unity movement. He was the author of sixteen best-selling books on metaphysical spirituality, a gifted theologian, philosopher, and lecturer, and for over fifty years a teacher of “practical Christianity,” helping thousands of people to help themselves to a more abundant life by the study and application of Truth.  I highly recommend reading, DISCOVER THE POWER WITHIN YOU and SPIRITUAL ECONOMICS.
