Counting the days: Today we explore the unique soul quality of Balance and harmony (Tiferet) within Strength and discipline (Gevurah.) Since this entire second week of the Omer is about strength and our ability to set limits and control our impulses, this particular day, we look at how we can also bring bal
ance, softness and harmony to the picture. An example might be having the strength to tell the truth, yet with the balanced awareness that there may be a bigger picture of which we are unaware. Being strong enough to stand firmly with our own truth, yet in a soft compassionate way, being open to the experience of others. Even telling the truth to ourselves, but doing so with self-compassion, not brow-beating.
