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.

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.

The practice as well as Rabbi Yael were featured recently on the Chai Haven Show on New Haven Independent radio, as well as in a 2015 New York Times article.

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.
