RETURN AGAIN to Begin Our Journey

During this zeman / season of Counting of the Sephirat HaOmer, 
I desire to reclaim my pure neshama / soul.

Return Again 
ChArt Art by Joy Krauthammer ©

"Return Again, Return again, 
Return to the land of your soul. 
Return to who you are.
Return to what you are.
Return to where you are.
Born and reborn again."

"Increasing our G*d consciousness is a process of constant Returning, each time coming out, 
being reborn closer to the essence of what we are, and who we are, and what makes us, and moves through us. 
The circles and levels unite in a multi-dimensional spiral." - Rabbi David Zeller

As we begin our Tree of Life journey from 2nd day Pesach to Shavuot, with Sephirat HaOmer,
 I recall with love, the teachings and songs blesSings 
of dear Reb David Zeller, z"l, and Reb Shlomo Carlebach, z"l.

Reb Zeller's yahrzeit 7 Sivan, is during Shavuot. 
Counting the Omer ends at Shavuot, 
and I recall the very sad news delivered Shavuot morning of Reb Zeller's death. 
Personally, celebrating Shavuot that morning, I was with Reb Zalman Schachter-Shalomi 
at Isabella Freedman Center when in grief, he informed us all that Reb Zeller Returned Again to the Holy One.

Is it where I've been, where I am, or where I'm going?
How do I look at life?
How are my journey's attributes in the fullness of Malchut?
How is my journey in Elul, doing Cheshbon HaNefesh?
In these two seasons I do similar soul accounting.
