Day 29 - Chesed Sh’b Hod: Love within Presence
Whatever is growing, whatever is coming through,
practice meeting it with love.
Where there is pain, offer compassion.
Where there is fear, reach out with tenderness.
When there is resistance, respond with patience.
Practice for today:
Make a commitment to sit for 5-10 minutes.
Begin by anchoring your attention on your breath.
As thoughts, emotions, sensations arise, say to each, The blessing of the Mystery upon you (Psalm 129:8)— and return your attention to your breath. Each time your mind wanders, bless the wandering with this verse and bring yourself back to center by taking another deep breath.
From the Mystery flows strength, from the Mystery flows peace.
—Rabbi Yael Levy
