Thursday, April 16, 2020 – 22 Nisan 5780 – Omer day 7

Pesach VI

Freedom is a result not of outside influences so much as of your inner spirit.  One can have all the luxuries and wealth in the world and feel imprisoned; another can be locked away for a life sentence and feel free.  (Success, p. 231)

Friday, April 17, 2020 – 23 Nisan 5780 – Omer day 8

Pesach VII

The seventh day is the traditional day to recall the overtaking of the Israelites at the sea, and to remember those who perished.  It is a holy convocation.

Freedom embraces the totality of life, the struggles and challenges of everyday life.  (Success, p. 231)

Saturday, April 18, 2020 – 24 Nisan 5780 – Yizkor – Omer day 9

Pesach VIII

Observe yourself fully experiencing life, not hiding from it, but rather allowing the full gamut of feelings and possible situations.  Accept what is.  While experiencing life fully, you will notice that moments of bliss are hidden in the pain, moments of joy are hidden in the suffering, forms of life are hidden in death, and eternity is hidden in impermanence.  (Compassion, p. 124)

“The Kohein shall see him, and behold, the skin eruption has turned white; the Kohein shall declare the skin eruption to be clean, he is clean.”

Upon rising in the morning, bless God for having created you with a soul that is pure.  In saying to yourself, “My soul is pure,” you reach that place with yourself that acts with integrity, compassion, and openness.  Imagine that God is embracing the purity of your soul with unconditional love.  (Intention, p. 42)
