Day 22 - Chesed Sh’b Netzach: Love within Vision
Today is the twenty-second day of the Omer.
Chesed Sh’b Netzach: Love within Vision
Your hearts will live forever.
Our acts of kindness and generosity endure.
Trust in your capacity to act with compassion and notice how it feels in
your body when you respond to yourself and others with empathy.
Our loving actions bring forth healing.
Practice for today:
Ask yourself: Am I speaking truthfully?
Is what I am saying helpful?
Is what I am saying kind?
Is what I am saying necessary and appropriate to the moment?
For the sake of my brothers, my sisters and friends,
I will speak for peace;
For the sake of creation,
I will seek well-being for all.
—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.
The daily teachings begin Saturday April 20, 2019, and continue to Shavuot, June 8. Also this year, for the first time, 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.
The practice as well as Rabbi Yael were featured in a 2015 New York Times article.
