Omer Day 42 מלכות שביסוד Malchut SheB’Yesod

Sovereignty. Selfitude. Reality. Actualization. Indwelling Presence within Foundation. Grounding. Roots. Connection. Generative Energy. 

Relationships, relationships, relationships!  Yesod always brings me there. I guess it’s all pretty much about relationships, anyway...

Here’s what I’m thinking about. It is my hope that, in and through my Connections, I can realize more and more aspects of my Selfitude. I also hope that anyone whose life I touch can find new aspects of their own Reality through our Connection. For that to happen AND when that happens, this seems to me an experience of the Indwelling Presnce. This morning’s meditation in the little daily reader I’ve been reading seems  apropos:

Wherever there is true fellowship and love between people, God’s spirit is always there as the Divine Third. In all human relationships, the Divine Spirit is what brings them together. When a life is changed through the channel of another person, it is God, the Divine Third, who always makes the change, using the person as a means. The moving power behind all spiritual things, all personal relationships between people is God, the Divine Third, who is always there. No personal relationships can be entirely right without the presence of God’s spirit. 

To me, that says it. 

Shabbat shalom.
