Today is forty-one days, which is five weeks and six days of the Omer in the year 5781. יסוד שביסוד, Yesod ShebeYesod. Core of Foundation. What binds you to this life? What is the foundation of your journey? Does your speech and actions reflect your soul?
Layer by layer, discovering our foundation
Just as the above picture features rice paddies on multiple levels down a mountainside, so too does my inner world contain multiple layers.
Take this forty-first day of the Omer to reflect into your own depths. What is the truth calling to you in this moment? How can you be fully present to the people around you?
Try to have one soul-nourishing conversation today. Not just transactional. Listen to the depths of your conversation partner. Remember to tell them how much you appreciate them.
May this Shabbat bring you a sense of deep understanding, soulful community, and blessed rest.
