DAY 4: Persistance within Lovingkindness


Netzach she b’Chesed will be coming soon, along with Shabbat, as the sun goes down here. I am reminded of how long, successful relationships require many small acts of caring, persistance, endurance. During the weekly grief group I run, I often hear of people who cared for their loved ones during a protracted final illness, moments of caring piled up upon moments of caring. Whether we are caring for our loved ones, or about an issue about which we feel passionately, our netzach keeps infusing the energy we need to help compassion flow. Shabbat shalom!

    … and it feels to me like each act of caring builds upon the next, and will never be lost but always be there, an ever-deepening well from which we nourish ourselves and those we love.

    Reading these posts is already becoming an important part of my Omer process. Thank you for these teachings!

    Dearest Min,

    I’m very happy to see your Omer blog. Yasher Koach. I am loving reading you for the first time.

    I relate totally to your Netzach sh b’ Chesed, as I was Caregiver Angel Warrior. You may recall, for 18 years this is how I served HaShem and one soul, z’l. After my caregiving ended, I went on Shavuot retreat with Reb Zalman, as we finished counting Omer.

    In dancing the Omer, I joyously realized that I could use my NETZACH toward JOY, and not only in Chesed, and toward fighting a battle with medical establishment and to save a life. This insight was a great leap of transcendence to freedom for me, and releasing “moments of caring piled up upon moments of caring”, to do tshuvah and return to my own more balanced creative soul in Chesed, Tiferet and Hod.

    As a result, I invite you to read my joyous Omer poems at http://www.sephirathaomer.blogspot.com .

    Chag sameach, and BlesSings for health and joy and balance of Sephirot in the Tree of Life.
    JOY Krauthammer
