Day 28 מלכות שבנצח

Malchut SheBeNetzach. Dignity within Endurance. Majesty within Eternity. 

Endurance. There are many ways to embody and express Endurance. Do we put our nose to the grindstone and "Just Do It?" Are we huffing and complaining through our Day-to-Day? Is the world seeing us sweat and strain, or have we infused our Endurance with enough Hod to achieve the Dignity of Malchut in our actions?

Eternity. There it is again. Vast. Overwhelming. Lonely. Endless. But infused with Majesty, with the results of our efforts in this life, Eternity is a splendid expanse in which we can luxuriate and spread out. A person in their Majesty takes up a wide swath of energetic space, no matter their physical stature. Today, you have full license to fill the Eternal space around you with your Majestic self. Today, you can be secure in the knowledge that the Eternal Presence of Shechina is filling you with Majesty and the strength to Endure with Grace.  Today, we know that we are a part of G8d's perpetual, Enduring renewal of Creation. 

Shabbat Shalom.
