Reality. Actualization. Sovereignty. Selfitude. Majesty. Indwelling Presence within Gratitude. Awe. Humility. Glory. Peak. Wow!
Gratitude in action. That is what comes to me when I think about Reality within Gratitude. How do you express your Gratitude and bring it into Reality?
For some, it is the outpouring of praise directly to G-d. For others, it is going out of the way to be of service to another with no expectation of return. I’m sure I’ve shared this before, but I am in Awe, Humility, and Gratitude in those moments when my daughter - now in full-blown tween upheaval - takes my hand as we walk together. I feel Shechina - the Reality of the Indwelling Presence - in those moments.
It’s fun that this year the Malchut days of the Omer fall on Shabbat. A wonderful day to experience the Actualization of Gratitude and Awe as we take a breath and let go of whatever we can of the previous six days. I am happy for the reminder today as this Week 1 of Dog comes to a close.
