Beauty and Harmony within Beauty and Harmony

Kabbalistic Sephirat Counting of the Omer day 17
2 weeks and 3 days
Day of squared Tiferet / Lev heart.

I love Day 17. In Gematria 17 = 1 + 7 = 8.
Eight representing spirituality, as in the celebrations of Brit covenant, and G*d's miracles/nesim of Chanukah and Exodus.

Garden Harmony

I can be in Tiferet if my answers are YES to my following questions:

Can I have simple truth in Tiferet: harmony, balance and beauty in my life and environment, as flowers have in my garden or their pot or pond or that turtles have co-existing in relationship with lilies or ducks in their water environment?  
Can my heart/Lev open to others as my heart does when I enjoy a fragrant flower or peaceful turtle? 
Can I express the beauty and glory of my surroundings and share that with others?  
In harmony, can I be both in ecstatic joy or quiet meditation?  
In Tiferet, can I balance elements and actions between Chesed's giving in kindness and Gevurah's holding back from giving too much in any medium-- emotional support, or gifts in hand?  
Can I serve humanity with joy and tranquility, and be in harmony with the Holy One?
