Day 28 - Shechina Sh’b Netzach: The Flow of Eternity
Today is the twenty-eighth day of the Omer.
A song of arising:
Filled with abundance are those who honor the Mystery
and follow the ways of the spirit.
We stand in the moment and feel our connection to all that came before us and all that will come after. We remember our grandparents, our great grandparents and all those whose actions have helped to create our lives. And we remind ourselves that we, right now, are shaping the world for those who will some day call us ancestors.
Practice for today:
Reflect on the world in which your grand-parents lived.
Imagine the world you would like to bestow on the next generation.
The Mystery is my strength and my shield.
My heart trusts all that will unfold.
—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.
