Counting the Omer
Today is the 17th day of the Omer. The numerical value of 17 is tov (good). Tiferet shebe Tiferet. The compassion of compassion. This middos means harmony and perfect balance. Middot means measurement and a character trait. The goal is not to be extreme, but to find balance.
We now go from Pesach to Shavuot. It is like a connected Chol Hamoed. These days have the power to grow. These are the 49 days that the Jewish people left Egypt and went from the 49th level of impurity to the 49th level of purity. From the lowest to the highest.
If you focus on the positive, you don't have to be so busy getting focused on the negative.
