Omer Day 11 נצח שבגבורה Netzach SheBiG'vurah

Eternity. Victory. Dominance. Direction. Daily Doings within Strength. Power. Discipline. Discernment. Boundaries.

Netzach. Creation Day 4. The stars are placed and ordered in the Expanse. The Expanse. Creation Day 2. Gevurah.

It is a mighty combination of elements. The stars in their precision, placed just-so by the Divine Principle. Ordered in the Rakia, the Expanse. I find it all a little overwhelming, truth be told. As someone aptly put it to me last night, "Whammo Zap!"

There is much to be done today. I mean that literally. Not much of a Shabbat for me, alas. (True confessions of an ordination student.) This particular day is chock-full of Daily Doings and miles to go before I sleep (and I mean that literally, too). I am counting on the Expansive Power of the Divine Principle to help me through it all, to Direct my comings and goings today with grace.

May you be blessed today with the sense of the Expansive Power of the Divine Principle. May your Doings be guided by the Strong Hand of the Eternal.

Shabbat Shalom.
