The Power of Choice

At this time between Passover and Shavuot, I am counting the Omer with readings by Rabbi Karyn Kedar. Thank you to Rabbi Faith Dantowitz for the introduction.
From Day 15 of Counting the Omer:

Choose the one next step towards self-actualization, towards shift in perspective, towards living in the light and emerging from darkness.

To choose! To acknowledge! To affirm! Choice is empowerment when we choose to live differently, to be better. With every choice we defy inertia, with every choice we expand our sense of possibility. With every choice we become emboldened. But it isn’t easy, nor is it linear. We go back and forth between choice and discernment, reaffirming our decisions, reexamining everything. The spiritual path is a zigzag, a switchback up a mountain. It is exhausting, riddled with doubt and setbacks. There are so many ways to get us to where we need to go.

Rabbi Karyn D. Kedar, from Omer: A Counting
