Day 24 - Tiferet Sh’b Netzach: Beauty that Endures
Today is the twenty-fourth day of the Omer.
Tiferet Sh’b Netzach: Beauty that Endures
The earth and all that is, is filled with Divine presence. (Psalm 24:1)
Beauty abounds. At times we can feel ourselves filled and surrounded
by splendor. Other times all we can see is brokenness and pain.
It is our responsibility to search out, notice and create beauty.
And it is our responsibility to allow the beauty to inspire our empathy
and encourage our acts of connection and love.
Practice for today:
Notice the beauty of nature and the beauty created by human hands.
Notice what it feels like in your body to be with something beautiful.
Name for yourself a way you bring beauty into this world.
Who ascends the high places?
Who stands in holiness?
Those with open hands and pure hearts,
all who seek the presence.
- 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.
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.
