Day 32: Netzach b’Hod

Netzach of Hod

by Judith E. Felsen

It is not any power over that I seek

but strength of my surrender To Your will

and trust in all Your ways.

In that it matters not if I am as a subtle breeze

or mighty roar of gale force might, as both Your winds of power

and Your gentler breaths do speak of You.

I can only yearn that practice of Your Torah/mitzvot

with devekut, ahavah, all longing of my deepest prayers

assists in clearing channels that prepare me daily

as an empty vessel through which

Your winds of heaven flow.

Reflection

Am I today victorious over the winds of emotion, desire and will which I experience as ruling me?

Am I today triumphant over inner barriers, defenses and rationalizations which may lead me to misdirect my actions as unbridled winds may cause unwanted effects?

Action

May I today allow myself to feel the power of the truth of Torah as the wind upon my back empowering my action.

May I today recognize, acknowledge and embrace the experience of such a wind empowering me now and always?
