Fasting or Feasting — A Spiritual Perspective on Lent
And a Special Feast or Fast Flowchart
From a spiritual perspective, Lent stands for a voluntary retreat from the world to prepare for our
resurrection from false beliefs, error thinking, and the denial of our innate divinity.
Spiritually speaking, there is only one kind of fasting: abstaining from error thoughts, choices, and actions that dampen the awareness of our oneness with Spirit. The dieting we advocate during Lent is dieting from doubts, fasting from fear, abstaining from believing we are unworthy, and eliminating the thinking that we are sinful by nature.
