Hatima Tova

This evening is the eve of  Yom Kippour
An important day in the Jewish faith, a day of Concentrated Prayer, of repentance and of forgiveness.
Asking forgiveness from our fellow man and from God, Our Creator.
On this day it is traditional to begin a fast from this evening until tomorrow evening, to deepen our intentions and focus, after which, it is said , we are to be written in the book of God, to which we wish each other “Hatima Tova” = Good Signing.

I would like to wish everyone celebrating Yom Kippour, Hatima Tova and an easy fast for those fasting.
I am hopeful we can pause and think about our fellow man, on a personal level and on a larger level.
The world at large has come to a place where we are feeling so much hurt and difference come to surface to be looked at and to be healed, but at the same time, we have come to a place where we feel more and more connected, with people from all over the world, from different countries, faiths & religions.
We are seeing more and more how we resemble despite our differences..how we hurt the same..laugh the same..love the same and fear the same.. we are seeing how we are interconnected..how we, from all over the Globe and our Earth depend on each other and our collaboration to reach those beautiful dreams of peace,harmony and blossoming that we all so wish for.. We are also seeing the results of the separation..the fear..and the resentment..for all the destruction and pain this has brought to all of us.. leading us back to source and to the holy teachings we have all received asking us to cherish and value our creation, our creator and our fellow brothers & sisters from the same creator
Shall we heed the call?
Shall we choose to do that much more each and everyone of us to soften and avoid conflict..
To Nourish harmony and Love so as to avoid more escalation to what we have seen such troublesome results ?
Are we ready to Honor All of Life?All of Creation?

My wish to All of us is to contemplate on this..today and everyday of our existence..
I leave you with a beautiful initiative of circles of music ‘Unite in Babylon” that does not divide between any faith, tradition or religion, aiming to create, celebrate and nourish harmony among all, taking place in Tel Aviv and in another 17 countries simultaneously to spread this awareness and nurture light and love, God Bless.
This clip starts with the singing of the words ‘And I receive upon myself to serve the will of God, to Love thy neighbor as thyself”..

Much Love
Mia
