We finished the 50 day count and celebrated Shavuot last week. Someone is still counting! They are not lagging behind or making up for not having counted—they started again. I receive a little note each day of his new count. Whether you are choosing to continue your count or not—the importance of ‘extending’ the count is key—to extend and expand on the growth you committed to or commit to another process of change. In this way we begin to realize that a program for change is not a ‘step program’ alone, the program itself is the change. We change as we prepare to change—and that helps us to see what change is possible and needed for future growth.
