Day 36 - Chesed Sh’b Yesod: Love within Foundation

For with you is the source of life. In your light, we see light.

(Psalm 36:10)

 

Connecting to the love and generosity that flows to us from the Mystery.

Opening ourselves to the Source

so our actions are filled with kindness and grace

 

Practice for today:

Make a commitment today to listen well.

When someone is speaking, listen with your whole body.

Listen without trying to form a response.

Listen to the words being spoken

and listen to the currents underneath the words.

Practice listening with compassion.

 

How essential is the flow of Divine Love.

Here we take refuge.

(Psalm 36:8)

 

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.

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.

Please note, Rabbi Yael is currently traveling and will be back to lead the Omer Zoom call for the week of Yesod which will be on Thursday May 30th  (there will be no call on Monday, May 27th).

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