Day 23 – Gevurah in Netzach

Gevurah is self-determination, setting aside loyalty to others and looking at a dimension of ‘loyalty to self.’  The obstacle to overcome today is both the sense of isolation-loneliness and the sense of selfishness.  Our self-expression may feel disloyal, a threat to our sense of connectedness to others.  We also need to reflect on whether we are being too rigid in our determination for growth. Can we consider how our change will impact others and be considerate without being disloyal to our self?

Meditation: What does loyalty to the self feel like?  Sit alone with your willingness to be alone.
