This is the day of Chesed within Tiferet, love within balance. On this day, I am thinking about how my loving relationships help me to find balance and peace in my life. I think about how when these relationships are out of balance – because of anger, resentment, misunderstanding, stress or a difficult situation – I feel the loss of peace in my entire body and soul.
On this 15th day of the Counting of the Omer, I make a commitment to be mindful of the ways that I express and receive love, and to consider how they help me achieve a sense of harmony in my life. I will take care to notice ways that needy, selfish or demanding expressions of love are actually disruptive to my peacefulness and work to transform them.
May this be a day in which you find a sense of balance through your healthy loving relationships.
