PSALMS OF MY SOUL ספירת העומר
TIFERET sh b'CHESED
Kabbalistic Sephirat HaOmer - day 3
- Joy Krauthammer 2016
"I HAVE DONE MY VERY BEST TO BE A FRIEND."
These are the words I just wrote on-line to Shoshana who lives in Israel. Shoshana, age 90, is a dear friend of our mutual friend. Shoshana uses computer, but our mutual 86 year old friend does not, so I write to Shoshana, my friend's friend, to tell her the ongoing surgical and medical news of our friend.
With my Tiferet, my love for friend, I have empathy and compassion. Empathy because I, too, have had similar surgery. Compassion as I would for anyone, and in Chesed because but this is a very dear friend of mine.
As Ram Dass said, "WE'RE ALL JUST WALKING EACH OTHER HOME."
In Chesed, in Lovingkindness, I try my best to be a friend, where friendship is needed, and has been requested. Sometimes there are imbalances, blockages, mitzrayims to cross in order to succeed in goals. I try to balance in Tiferet, in love the steps I need to succeed in being a friend during medical crises. It takes Tiferet, balance from me to get past blockages to help my friend.
