Netzach of Hod


Hi everyone, Jordan Drayer, the savvy millennial voice actress whose humility can go the distance. Today is four weeks and four days of the Omer. If you want to know more about the Omer and how it works, check out the links in the description.


Today is Netzach of Hod, the endurance of humility. I see this as several things. Do you remain humble in times of great praise? Like if you win a competition, or maybe you're on a book tour, can you continue to see the other people as people, and not let fame and power intoxicate you?


Or in any position of power, like a teacher to students, there's a danger of this. I've felt a sense of wanting to keep talking and explaining as I taught music and English, but I have to let the students figure things out for themselves. I have to retreat, give them more space, let them have the spotlight.


The other thing is, does your humility help you endure through challenges? If it's not healthy, like thinking you can do everything on your own, you will break one day without help. If you normally let people walk all over you, you may never begin the challenge. Or if you're only persisting in a sport or music because your parents or another are forcing you, is that healthy? Maybe the Chinese parenting style would say otherwise, but to me it seems no love for the thing, like the sport or the instrument, is fostered by forcing. Without their forcing you, unless you find you really do love the thing, you'll probably give it up. This would be swinging your humility back towards the balanced center, setting boundaries.


I hope all of that makes sense! Today's exercise is to demonstrate humility by initiating or taking part in a cause. Preferably for the endurance piece, it'll be something you will continue to support. Even if you initiate one, like you organize a march, it won't be un-humble as long as you seek no excess glory for organizing it. I'm going to double down on donating each day to GoFundMe's that speak to me. Thank you so much, please like and share, and I'll see you tomorrow.
