Day 20 יסוד שבתפרת

Yesod SheBeTiferet. Grounding. Unity. Foundation. Procreation. Connection. Emanation. Within Compassion. Beauty. Heart. Balance. Harmony. 

Yesod is deep and broad. It is Foundation. Associated with the procreative organs, it is the infinite emanations of Generative Creativity. It is Unity and Connectedness, the ability to send our best inner worlds into outer reality.

Tiferet is associated with the Heart, with Compassion, Harmony, and Balance. It is Beauty.

If I have a foundation in harmony, I am sure to emanate beauty. When I am grounded in compassion, I am sure to sow seeds of compassion, which scatter forth to bring aid and inspiration to others. Teach a man to fish. Plant perennials. Can I perform good works that will last?

As we do our part today to repair the Sefirot of Yesod SheBeTiferet, we are grounded in beauty. Our foundation is compassion. We unite with our hearts. We generate beauty as we walk through the world.
