Rami: A Brief Aside

Before moving on to the Seventh Commandment, but I want to briefly offer something to your personal practice of remembering that the people you meet are the image and likeness of God.

The Name of God, Y-H-V-H, when written vertically in Hebrew looks like a stick-figure drawing of a human being. It became a spiritual practice to visualize the Name of God as the physical body of any person you meet: the Yod is the head, the Hey is the shoulders and arms, the Vav is the torso, and the final Hey is the pelvis and legs. The limits of blogspot prevent me from actually drawing this here, but if we publish this blog someday, I can demonstrate it graphically.

Anyway, you might try this as an added dimension to what you already do.

On to Commandment Seven.
