Chesed Shebeyesod – Kindness in bonding
Joke: A man asks a judge to let him off jury service.
Judge says, ‘But surely your firm can manage without you for a few weeks.’ The man replies, ‘Certainly. They can manage without me altogether – and I don’t want them to find out.’
Yesod, bonding, is about creating the glue that bonds us to each other. When you wish to bond with someone learn how to express your love and affection for them in a way that they understand. Allow them to feel and sense how important a role they play in your life.
Do not keep your deep connection to the other person inside. Express it with passion and intensity.
