Omer Day 25 נצח שבנצח Netzach SheBeNetzach

Eternity. Active Force. Endurance. Leadership within Eternity. Active Force. Endurance. Leadership. 

It is always an adventure sitting down to write these. I'm never quite sure what's going to come out. Sometimes I'm a little more sure than other times. Tonight, I come to my writing with nothing but the image of a swirgling whirlpool dancing in my mind. It is not a whirlpool in a body of water, but somehow free-floating. Yes, it contains water, but it is also made up of air and raw energy. Even some dried leaves and sticks and tree branches. 

A whirlpool is a powerful Force. Unstoppable, bringing everything that draws near its flow into its inexorable pull. I understand now that what I am seeing here is all the elements of Creation. It is All Being and All Potential, known in some circles as YHVH

In the hands of the One, we are leaves and twigs, swirling towards Infinite potential, driven and guided by the Enduring Eternal, Infintely becoming. Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh.

Today, may you be blessed with acceptance of the invitation to swirl and dance into your Infinite potential. May you be Led and guided by the Infinite Unfoldings of the Holy Blessed One.
