Today is eighteen days, which is two weeks and four days of the Omer. נצח שבתפארת, Netzach ShebeTiferet, Eternity of Beauty.
How do we hold onto eternity? By building a space for it in the material world. This is a day to notice your physical surroundings. Rather than putting off the cleaning to another day because you have So Many Important Things to Do, try committing to making one corner of your world a little more beautiful.
If we are able to have the discipline to keep our physical world in order, our souls have room to breathe.
I am the last person to give cleaning advice. I am far too stuck in my head for my own good. Today, I will clean a bathroom. It has been weighing heavily on me for (I dare not say how long). Today, it will be done.
How are you bringing the eternity of beauty into your life?
