Day Seven of Week 6: Malchut of Yesod

Day Seven of Week 6: Malchut of Yesod

42nd Day of the Omer

 Email

Bonding must enhance a person's sovereignty. It should nurture and strengthen your own dignity and the dignity of the one you bond with. Does my bonding inhibit the expression of my personality and qualities? Does it overwhelm the one I bond with?

Exercise for the day: Emphasize and highlight the strengths of the one you bond with.

Another Suggested Exercise Examine an important bond you have with another person or even an ideal. Think of ways in which the bond itself is more important than your own individual position or that of the other.

For example, in the politics of our day, we are often so righteous about our own partisan position, we forget about the real importance of trying to find our way to a common position with the other side in harmony.

In many ways, the harmony of the bond is more significant than "winning" for our own side. This is also the malchut of yesod. Reply
