For each week’s Sefirah you can ask yourself on this day of Yesod, have I done the inner work needed…to design myself anew? In truth, the process of recreating myself anew (a new blueprint) is an everyday (moment) occurrence—but that is also the task for this week as I contemplate leaving the enslavement of Egypt. Yesod also means foundation—so as this week we use the analogy building a home keep in mind that this is the day for digging out the foundation.
Meditation: Is part of my blueprint to remember each day that I am leaving Egypt today—which Egypt? The Egypt of millennia ago and today’s Egypt as well.
