Today is nine days, which is one week and two days of the Omer in the year 5782. גבורה שבגבורה, Gevurah ShebeGevurah, Strength within Strength, Judgement within Judgement, Discipline within Discipline.
God is The Rock.
She holds us steady when we falter.
We lean on Her staff.
Her rod guides us back to our best selves.
HaShem Tzuri, God is my Rock.
Hold Judgment Lightly
Judgment lightly held is discernment.
Discernment leads towards awakening.
Awakening grows change.
Change creates space.
Space brings harmony.
Harmony expands flourishing.
Flourishing recognizes revelation.
Later today, I will post my final words to the AJRCA community minyan, also reflecting on Gevurah ShebeGevurah.
