Omer Day 45 תפארת שבמלכות Tiferet SheBeMalchut

Balance. Harmony. Beauty. Art within Dignity. Selfitude. Give-ceiving. Presence. Reality. 

Yesterday, I wrote of back bones. Today, I point out the fact that that back bone, the spine, is made up of a series of small bones, cartilage, and joints, giving it the flexibility it needs to be functional. Imagine a giraffe whose spine couldn't bend! 

I keep certain aspects of my life in black and white, because life on the whole exists in full color. I make my way down the path in a series of skips, leaps, and pauses. Bounding forward, practicing Restraint. In the Balance of these leaps and pauses unfolds the Reality of my increasingly colorful life.

May you be blessed today with Harmony within your colorful Reality. May your spine remain flexible, and your Flow be paced so as to support you, and fill you with Presence in your fullest Self.
