Today is the tenth day of the omer, which is one week and three days. It corresponds to the sefirah of tiferet in gevurah, of beauty in discipline/strength. Lev’s Meditation A garden in the middle of the fortified castle. Beauty within Strength. Within the Strength of Gevurah is a place of balance and peace and even rest. And ten is the entire Tree of Life, the Days of Teshuva (return), and Ten Utterances (commandments), and ten lost tribes, there are ten plagues, and how often am I able to retreat to a place of rest-peace-equalibrium, so I can focus my love on those close to me?

  • While I am a Christian you may find the following interesting. I have written a book on biblical history. The name of the book is “The Fourth Day: Why the Bible is Historically Accurate”. Presently, biblical history uses the events of the Bible and the theories of secular historians to develop the biblical timeline. I take a unique approach in my book by using only information from the Bible to develop the biblical timeline. By doing this I have uncovered several historical questions. Did the Persian Empire only last 21 years or over 200 years? Is there a 300 year period in Egypt’s history, shortly after the Biblical Exodus, in which Egypt did not have a Pharoah? Was Ahasuerus of the book of Esther, claimed by experts to be Xerxes, actually Cyrus? My book can be viewed on lulu.com at the following address: http://www.lulu.com/dmthompson
