Day 21 of the Omer

On this last day of the second week of the Omer we experience Malchut in Tiferet, Sovereignty or Leadership in Balance.


Water has unique properties - it is in its solid, liquid, and gaseous states at some place on Earth all at the same time.It is known as the universal solvent because so many chemicals dissolve in it. It is critical for life, which evolved in and around and in need of water. These and other properties make water an unsuspecting leader. We cannot live without water. Wars have been fought over it, and in some places it is more precious than oil because we need it so badly. 


As long as the amount of available fresh clean water is in balance, all is well. Water maintains its leadership position.


Our unique qualities make us leaders, as well, in our families, our communities, and our world.  As long as we are in balance, we too, can maintain our leadership. Keeping the leader qualities of ourselves in balance is critical to our ability to lead others, whether physically, morally, politically, economically, spiritually, or in any other way.


Baruch atah Adonai Eloheinu melech ha'olam, asher kid-shanu b'mitzvotav, vitzivanu, al sefirat ha'omer.

Blessed are you Adonai our G!d, ruler of the universe, who sanctifies us with mitzvot and commands us regarding the counting of the Omer.


Today is twenty-one days which is three weeks of the Omer.
