Omer Day 3 תפארת שבחסד Tiferet SheBeChesed

Beauty. Harmony. Balance. Splendor within Love. Ubounded Giving. Flow. Generosity.

What is the Splendid Beauty that lies within Chesed, the place of Freely Given Love? With the Balance of Tiferet, the Beauty is that everyone comes away feeling good about it.  

Chesed gives with no expectation of return. Balance and Harmony within this Flow leave giver and receiver feeling sated. A Chesed infused with Tiferet is eliminates the potential for resentment, one of the most poisonous elements in our emotional makeup. This subtle shade of Love does not leave the giver feeling resentful, and does not leave the receiver wondering if the Generosity was sincere. 

Inside this type of Giving - not completely without bounds, but not concerned with scarcity - a HeartBlossom can flourish in each person, and in the space between. 

How can you infuse your Love with Beauty today? How can you find Balance in your Generosity? What can you do to let go of resentment today?  

May you feel sated in the Love you Give and receive. May your Giving be sincere. May those who receive of your Generous spirit thrive in the glow of enough. May a garden blossom in your Heart today!
