Omer Day 42 מלכות שביסוד Malchut SheBiy'sod

Reality. Actualization. Give-ceiving. Dignity. Sovereignty. Selfitude within Foundation. Bonding. Connection. Roots.  

A friend was good enough to share with me a beautiful vision of Malchut SheBiy'sod that was passed along to him by another friend last night. Rain falling on new green grass. Can I put into words my internal understanding of this? I feel that anything I try to say about it will instantly fall flat, the image sits so delicately in my imagination. The Roots. Each blade an erect, Dignified individual, inextricably linked - Bonded - to its surrounding system. The rain, flowing from the Source in the endless cycle of evaporation and condensation, permeating the soil and feeding the growth. The grass bringing the potential held in the water molecules into the Reality of green, of continuous growth, of oxygen given to the oxygen breathers. Give-ceiving. 

What feeds your Root system? What Reality results? What helps you retain your Selfitude amidst the inextricable links in your life? 

Today may you be blessed with the Actualization of your Roots. May you feel the Dignity of your Foundation within your deepest Connections.
