(Lovingkindness in Lovingkindess)
What better way to begin the counting of the omer with a reflection of what's in your heart?
As the famous Beatles song goes:
All you need is love, love
Love is all you need
Doesn't matter how many times it's been broken. Doesn't matter how often it's been closed.
Your heart is a resilient creation -- the Holy Temple of the Divine.
What would it feel like to free up the limitless free-flowing love inside? It's your birthright.
So let's ask God to open up your heart a little bit more each day than the one before.
May you receive Love for yourself without feeling a need to deserve it.
May you then feel safe to give it unconditionally to others.
