When we see through our hearts, we recognize that every single one of us is infused with creativity. Divine Sparks are embedded in everyone and everything. It's up to us to be courageous, to look and listen deeply, to find the sparks, gather and release them back into the universe, transformed into something new. Join me as we wake up to the sacred-ordinary blessings waiting to greet us each and every day.

Counting the Omer
Malchut Sheb’Malchut Presence within Presence, ever since this part of our journey started on the second night of Pesach, we began to taste freedom on the tips of our tongues. Even so, when Shabbat ends and Shavuot begins we will stand together at the foot of the metaphoric mountain, the thunder, fire and dense smoke of our endlessly busy lives, the deafening noise that surrounds us in this electronic age, the anxieties that take up head space, the disappointments, judgments and struggles that tighten our hearts, causing amnesia, confusion, too often forgetting the power of a single breath noticed, where we are, who we are, what is most important, the reasons we packed up our few belongings and left Mitzrayim, the narrow place for the vast unknown, ended up in our dusty travel worn rucksacks. We are human;it is difficult to completely escape the constricting psychological shackles that bind our steps as we stumble, sleepwalking through most of our lives.
And then, for perhaps the briefest of moments, this wilderness wandering, this cacophony and graceless motion will cease. In stillness, as if the entire world is suspended in a nearly imperceptible drop of morning dew, a spark of insight will allow us to perceive release and unification all at once, present to Presence within Presence. We are now as prepared, as we can be to gather at Sinai, just one more day, Malchut sheb’Malchut.
