Day 14 - Shechina Sh’b Gevurah: Majesty within Strength

Today is the fourteenth day of the Omer.

We are all channels for the holy, here to be of service.

Our lives are our offerings.

May we serve with humility and strength.

Practice for today:

We ask ourselves,

In what ways do I need to be more rigorous with myself?

In what ways do I need to be more gentle?

What are the practices and rituals that guide and sustain me?

From the mystery, the Holy One gazes upon us to see if there is someone who has the good sense to seek God in all. (Psalm 14:2)

Rabbi Yael Levy

 

The Omer teachings you see here and can receive as nightly email reminders by signing up for our mailing list, are taken from Rabbi Yael Levy's Omer guide, Journey through the Wilderness, which is available as a whole in print or as an ebook.

The daily teachings begin Tuesday March 31 and continue to Shavuot, May 19. A Way In also invites you to join us for our annual retreat in the high desert of New Mexico for the last days of the Counting.

The practice as well as Rabbi Yael were featured in a 2015 New York Times article.
