Day 38 - Tiferet Sh’b Yesod: Beauty within Connection
Touching the depths
and aligning ourselves with the truth of each moment
Feeling the soul shift as it moves toward balance
Taking notice of the beauty in the simple and the ordinary,
and declaring all life sacred
Practice for today:
Find a place to sit that to you is beautiful, that to you is sacred.
Look around. Take in the details, the sights, sounds, smells.
Close your eyes and feel the sacred within you.
With a deep breath, give thanks.
Close your sit by saying a prayer for the safety and well-being of others.
I give thanks with all my heart.
I lay myself down in the Holy Temple and give thanks for all.
For love, for truth.
—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.
