Catalina Mountains remind me to keep climbing. :)

Catalina Mountains remind me to keep climbing. 🙂

Regardless of how life is
I find the light and focus on the good.
Light is full of shades from bright to darkness.

When the world is crumbling
Crumbling pieces are like remnants of cake.
Each morsel tasted and the sweetness digested

Breathing in light
Breathing out the darkness
Eventually after enough breaths, finding balance with each inhalation.

Thank God for new days
Bad days really do end
And new days emerge with beauty.

At the moment, I am keeping perspective while navigating the darkness that has been plaguing my life for way too long. Thankfully there are flowers that bloom constantly in the desert, a moon that illuminates even the darkest skies, and sunrises that revitalize the mountains while warming my heart and soul.

Note: I will be Counting the Omer for a total of 49 days, from Passover to Shavuot or from Slavery to Freedom.  For many, this is simply the Counting the Omer; for me, it is a time to actively reflect on different middot (character traits) that will lead me to my own rebirth.

Middah (character trait) focus:  Timeliness

Being late has never worked for me and yet sometimes it happens.  This Omer piece is late – for that I am sorry.  So, while I want to make amends, I also want to say that mistakes are part of life.

May we all aspire to do a little better navigating and scheduling of our lives.

With love and light, Chava

Better late than never :)

Tonight we counted Day 26 of the Omer, which is 3 weeks and five days of the counting. Today is referred to as Hod sheh b’Netzach, humility and majesty within endurance.

Have you ever noticed that life seems to have too many moving parts?  Navigating our world is never-ending, we all have to navigate every moment of our lives.

Congested

With that in mind, it can be difficult to notice the majestic beauty that surrounds us; it can also be humbling to realize that while we count, we don’t count all that much in the grand scheme of things.

As you journey within Day 26 of the Omer, take a deep breath and notice the pure splendor that surrounds you not only with nature, but with those people that surround you, and all that life encompasses.  With each breath, breathe in the beauty and then realize that you have a part in the larger world.  You count, but you don’t have to be perfect; just be the best human being you can be.

With love and light. . . .
