Day 25 - Netzach Sh’b Netzach: Eternity within Eternity
Today is the twenty-fifth day of the Omer.
Netzach Sh’b Netzach: Eternity within Eternity
May we be shown the paths to travel,
May we be guided in truth.
May we bring to awareness compassion and love
Remembering they are forever.
Everything is alive, filled with potential.
All creation makes manifest the One.
The Eternal fills each moment and calls us forward to shine.
Practice for today:
At some time during this day, pause and stand.
Bring your attention to your feet,
and feel them grounded to the earth.
Extend your shoulders back so your heart space opens;
let your hands rest facing outward by your side.
Bring your attention to the crown of your head,
take a deep breath, breathing in the Mystery.
Return your attention to the souls of your feet,
and breathe in the power of the earth.
In the palms of your hands, feel the sensations of life around you.
With a breath into your heart, feel the Mystery moving through.
When you are ready, declare:
To You, Eternal Presence, I lift my soul.
—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.
