Day 16: The Limits of "It's all good"
Tonight begins the 16th Day of the Omer (May 5 - 6, 2008)
May that part of me that is broken in Gevurah in Tiferet be healed on this day.
It's all good. Projects at work, new business, kids at school, kids at play, life in synagogue, family, life with spouse, holidays, volunteer efforts, work in the guarding, planning vacation, learning new things, blogging...
It's all good.
Gevurah in Tiferet is the "But." Gevurah in Tiferet says "You can't do it all. The sense of overwhelm that ensues from all that good ends up taking away from good."
Focus is the antidote to overwhelm. On this one I'm preaching to myself big time.
On this night of Gevurah in Tiferet, may I find the strength to focus and to let go of what I can't do.
