The Ninth Day of the Omer - strength within strength.
Pursuing strength, hardness, justice, often requires discipline - it is important to push ourselves.
With all our fuzzy language about kindness and love, we still know that at the core of our work we must pursue it with determination and rigor.
We must find that core of discipline, the spark of motivation that helps us push through to our next level, whatever and wherever that might be.
Strength can be a value - rigor can be a priority - finding the sources to persist requires us to dig deep.
Be determined. Persevere.
