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.

(Psalm 128:1)

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.

(Psalm 28:7)

 

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.
