Today is the tenth day of the omer, which is one week and three days. It corresponds to the sefirah of tiferet in gevurah, of beauty in discipline/strength. Lev’s Meditation A garden in the middle of the fortified castle. Beauty within Strength. Within the Strength of Gevurah is a place of balance and peace and even rest. And ten is the entire Tree of Life, the Days of Teshuva (return), and Ten Utterances (commandments), and ten lost tribes, there are ten plagues, and how often am I able to retreat to a place of rest-peace-equalibrium, so I can focus my love on those close to me?
