Reality and Trust - Omer Day 22

Words by Rabbi Katy Z. Allen

What is reality?

Can we trust our eyes?
Can we trust our minds?
Can we trust our hearts?

Reality takes many forms.

What does it mean to trust?
What does it mean not to trust?

Bondage includes a lack of trust in our vision, our minds, and our hearts.
Finding trust is part of finding freedom.

Experiencing revelation requires trust. 
And faith.

Where are we on our journey toward trust?

Today is Day 22, which is three weeks and one day of the Omer.
Today is Day 22, which is three weeks and one day of the journey from bondage to revelation.
