All of us are sacred vessels, channels through which the Divine flows into this world. Each of us is uniquely formed so as to bring forth a particular aspect of the Mystery. We give thanks for all of who we are. We give thanks for our places in the mysterious unfolding of all creation. We ask that our hands be open and our hearts be pure so that our lives can be of service and, together with all beings, we will bring forth blessing.   See today's Omer practice and read...

Each moment is a seed of eternity and all there is, is now. With everything we do, we weave the future and all there is, is now. Our lives extend beyond anything we will ever know and all there is, is now. In every moment we dwell in the Sacred Presence. May we act accordingly.   See today's Omer practice and read scripture in English and Hebrew on our daily Omer page.

Everything is a gift from the Divine. Everything that is, everything that will be. It is all a gift from the Eternal. Keeping our hearts closed profanes the gift. Keeping our hearts closed deadens the spirit.   See today's Omer practice and read scripture in English and Hebrew on our daily Omer page.
