Yesod in Chesed - the bridge, or lens, or foundation, in compassion.
Yesod is where we start, a firm footing for our first step into exploring deeper meaning in our lives. It is the bridge to broad horizons from which we can see destinations and ideals.
In attempting to achieve kindness we must have a foot set on something solid as we extend our hand in assistance. Let us find our footing as the first part of reaching out to help.
Knowing something of our destination eases any journey, and traveling towards compassion still asks us to move in the direction of another.
Firm footing on all our journeys and countings!
At the core of my spiritual journey is a theology that is open enough to allow exploration and admit mystery, and reasonable enough to allow my brain to include it.
I am not too sure about the existence of the divine much less the nature of the infinite.
I am confident that there is mystery in the universe and that existence is a miraculous gift. I like to think they're connected and that may be my leap of faith.
The most amazing miracle around is the evolution of life and its diversity. That's worthy of crafting practices of appreciation.
