Happy Eid & Hatima Tova

This year we have been blessed with a beautiful gift from the Universe.

A sacred holiday for the Jewish tradition coincides on the same day as the celebration of a Sacred Holiday in the Muslim tradition.Such a lovely occasion to celebrate our joint faith within our beautiful diversity.

As a Global Family we have been given many teachings, not to separate us but to represent the various colours of similar truths, so that we can all share our own versions and grow together towards the light.

I have written before how the essence of Yom Kipour in the Jewish tradition is very similar to the Ramadan in The Muslim Tradition.
Today we have an opportunity to share the same day in our dedication to our faith.

On Yom Kipour we devote ourselves to inner contemplation, through prayer and fasting during 24 hrs, reviewing our actions , repenting our sins and asking for forgiveness,after which we are said to be “signed in ” to the book of life..hence the term wished to one another “Hatima Tova” Good signing.

Eid Al Adha is devoted to the essence of Sacrifice based on Abraham`s readiness to sacrifice the life of his son to the request of God, aswell as his son`s readiness to sacrifice his own life, after which God spared his life.

The Test of Faith that was put to them both is of great significance and requires contemplation upon our readiness to sacrifice ourselves in our lives for our faith and for the sake of others.

It is my wish on this Joint Holy day that we share our faith and see the beauty in one another, joining together in contemplation upon our ways and our faith, remembering God has created us all in Love and aiding each other to grow  TOGETHER towards the Light of our Joint Creator, Amen.

Blessings to All

Much Love

He who loveth the creator/ Mia Leventhal

He who loveth

The Creator
Loves all
He has Created.
Our Neighbors
Are our Brothers to Creation,
Intended to
Complete our Existence,
Living side by side in Harmony.
Just as
The Sea Completes
The Earth
And the Air Completes
The Flower`s Birth.
Once we surrender
To Love
We shall then Understand
The Secret of Creation
And Find
Peace and Serenity.
Original Poem written by myself in Hebrew:
האוהב את בורא העולם
אוהב את כל בריאתו.
שכנינו הם אחינו לבריאה
ונבראו להשלמת קיומינו על פני האדמה
כשם שהים משלים את היבשה
והאויר משלים את הפריחה
כך גם אנו נועדנו
לחיות זה לצד זה
בהשלמה.
ברגע שנבין
ונכנע לאהבה
אז נגלה
את סוד הבריאה
ונמצא את השלום והשלווה..
מיאה לבנטל
