Today would have been Marcel's, z"l, 70th birthday.
Tiferet In Tiferet means to me the compassion in my/our hearts that I/all shared with my husband, Marcel, z"l, over the 18 years that he was treated over and over again for metastatic brain cancer and severe constant complications.
How loving, tender, constant, intense, enthusiastic, expressive, limitless, authentic, genuinely empathetic --was Compassion that I/we shared?
Could we share Compassion? Did it overflow, or were we limited, abrupt, disengaged, compulsive, careless? When? Why? (fear, scary, seeing self, mortality, bitterness, anger?)
Was/Is Compassion from a sense of duty, pity, self-serving, selfless or meeting the other's needs?
Is my Compassion beautiful?
Does my Compassion hold in harmony the other six Sephirot?
Can I go beyond previous limitations in my Compassion and circumcise again my heart?
Compassionately, I share my soul's Love, that is my expressive nature.
