Day 27 - Yesod Sh’b Netzach: Foundation within Eternity

Today is the twenty-seventh day of the Omer.

Wisdom flows through all creation.

It is revealed through the trees, the mountains,

the songs of the river and the sea.

Each blade of grass, each rock and flower, has something to teach.

The Mystery is waiting to be received.

 

Practice for today:

Notice what in the natural world attracts your attention.

Spend a few moments wondering what wisdom it conveys.

 

The Mystery says to my heart: Seek my presence.

The presence of all that was, all that is, all that will be, I will seek.

I am grounded in the Mystery.

May my heart be strong and filled with courage.

I am grounded in the Mystery.

(Psalm 27:8,14)

 

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.
