The future is unknown. But today is day four of the Omer and teaches us Netzach b’Chesed: Eternity, perseverance with loving-kindness. We can’t know the future, we can try and control its outcome but the truth is that it is beyond our control. We can ultimately only control our own actions and reactions. Netzach b’Chesed reminds us to pursue our future but do so surrounding yourself, grounding yourself in gentleness, in kindness and love. With this grace you will shape your future in a holy way. Today day four-teaches us not to struggle in fear or anger. But to use our own inner quiet, thoughtfulness and love to pave the pathway to eternity!
Eternity in Lovingkindness
