Day 32 - Netzach Sh’b Hod: Endurance within Presence

Today is the thirty-second day of the Omer

Netzach Sh’b Hod: Endurance within Presence

The Mystery calls:

I will give you the good sense,

I will fill you with light so you can discern the best path to travel.

(Psalm 32:8)

 

Listening for the wisdom, knowledge and awareness

that helps us know when it is time to be still

and when it is time to step forward

Watching for the signs that show us how to respond effectively

to whatever the moment calls for

 

Practice for today:

Find a comfortable place to sit. Close your eyes. Let your hands rest on your legs, palms facing up. Take a few calming deep breaths and bring your attention to your hands. Feel the sensations in your open palms and on your fingers. When you notice your mind has wandered, bring your attention gently back by taking a breath and returning to the feelings in your hands and finger tips.

Sit with these sensations for 5-10 minutes.

End your sit by lifting your hands and offering thanks.

Trust surrounds us with love.

(Psalm 32:10)

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.

Please feel free to join us via call-in for live Thursday morning 8-8:30 AM Omer-themed Meditation Sits with Rabbi Yael Levy, or listen to a recording of the Sit posted on Facebook and our Web site soon afterward.

The daily teachings started on Tuesday, April 11 and continue to Shavuot, May 29. 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 recently on the Chai Haven Show on New Haven Independent radio, as well as in a 2015 New York Times article.

Each week of the Omer is associated with one of seven sefirot, manifestations of Divine attributes, that the Kabbalists associated with each week between Pesach and Shavuot.

As part of your Omer practice, please consider making a donation in conjunction with a week of the Omer (and its attribute) that resonates for you. If you wish to make a gift in honor or in memory of someone, we will let them know of your gift with an inspirational card.
