Barukh ata Adonay, Eloheinu, melekh ha’olam, asher kid’shanu b’mitzvotav v’tzivanu al sfirat ha-omer.
Blessed are You, Adonay our God, ruler of the universe, who makes us holy with mitzvot and gives us this opportunity to count the Omer.
Today is day six of the Omer. Hayom yom shishi laOmer.
Today is Yesod be Khesed, sexuality within kindness, foundation within generosity.
It keeps being cool that what underlies the other traits is sexuality. Relationship – building bridges between ourselves and others – that is the foundation of what we do, the spur to give more. Today, I reconnect with passion as a translation between dreams and reality, as something which I can use at the back of my head to drive the next action. I take the passion I feel about something and turn it into acts of grace towards others. Today, I turn my kindness on, illuminating it with the light of passion and desire, thus making it stronger and fiercer and more real.
Today, may we be passionate in our loving.
