Walking in today's omer state of consciousness, lovingkindness within lovingkindness, my sweet Hubbatzin Barry came upon this street sweeper pausing to help a very shaky homeless person write a sign asking for spare change. Before the sun sets today there is still time for this Day One Omer practice--imagine being surrounded by more loving kindness than you have ever known, now allow yourself to fill with this glory, and express a prayer for this experience to untie your tangles (ana b'koakh), become radiant with this Love Song, know everything that lives is singing it, today, now, to you, each to all. Walk in the world, go out in this consciousness. Today has been Day One of the Omer.
