gather your dear ones
engage in community
don’t do it alone
Two years ago, at the start of the pandemic, I discovered the Kabbalistic practice of counting the Omer while studying the tree of life.
I got a book about this and engaged in the practice.
It’s how I had always done things in the past.
But it’s no longer how I do things.
Taking a cue from others around me, this year I decided to embark on the journey in community.
Having others do this with me gave me such a boost to keep going. I was able to better integrate my learning and ideas by sharing and I got to hear other perspectives.
The belief that I must do things alone is so pervasive; it helps to have this major proof that the belief is just that — a belief.
Life is better and richer when shared in community.
You don’t have to do it alone.
