Day 36 - Chesed Sh’b Yesod: Love within Foundation
For with you is the source of life. In your light, we see light.
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.
—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 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. 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.
