Tonight begins the 40th Day of the Omer (May 22-23, 2006), which is five weeks and five days of the omer. May that part of me that is broken in Hod in Yesod be healed on this day.
The splendor of creation is exposed in all its glory in a desert canyon. There are clear lines in this natural architecture. The canyon structure causes deep shadows and unexpected shelters. The motion of powerful tectonic and hydraulic forces leave clear evidence of their presence, if one would only stop to pay attention.
The Burning Bush also required attention. How would one know that a bush is being burned but not consumed? You would have to stop and look, really look. This is the contemplative aspect of prophesy. The will of God birthed into this world by still, patient seeing.
