Day 21 - Shechina Sh’b Tiferet: Majesty within Beauty
Today is the twenty-first day of the Omer.
Shechina Sh’b Tiferet: Majesty within Beauty
Beauty and love are made manifest through our words and actions.
Each of us, all creation, celebrates the Divine.
Our lives are our offerings.
May we be grounded in compassion and truth.
Practice for today:
Make an extra effort to care for your physical well-being.
Eat well. Walk. Exercise. Stretch.
Stop for a moment, take a slow even deep breath
and notice the life force that flows through you and into the world.
The heart trusts the flow of the Mystery
and the love of the Most High.
It will not be shaken.
—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 Saturday April 20, 2019, and continue to Shavuot, June 8. Also this year, for the first time, A Way In is offering the opportunity to count together one night a week on Zoom, guided live on video by Rabbi Yael Levy. Every Monday evening at 8:30PM EST Rabbi Yael offers a teaching about the week and the day of the Omer, and we stand together and count the new day. Counting together strengthens and helps inspire our experience and practice. Go to instructions for connecting with Zoom.
The practice as well as Rabbi Yael were featured in a 2015 New York Times article.
