Day 26 - Hod Sh’b Netzach: Gratitude within Eternity
Today is the twenty-sixth day of the Omer.
Hod Sh’b Netzach: Gratitude within Eternity
We open to whatever is unfolding in our lives and reach for gratitude.
Gratitude helps lift us beyond our own pain, fears and doubt.
Gratitude helps us find the strength to stand in the moment
and discern the path forward.
Practice for today:
Give thanks before you eat.
Say thank you when you see something beautiful,
when you experience a moment of connection.
Give thanks for all this day brings
and notice how gratitude feels in your body.
I will see the world through eyes of love and generosity,
and walk in the truths they reveal.
I will give voice to my gratitude, and speak about the wonders I behold.
—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.
