In You My Brother,the ‘Other’, I have seen God

*Francais suivi
Recently I had the opportunity to volunteer working with young Eritrean refugees here in France.We worked on some art and expressive writing in English and we created together a Nativity scene of the birth of Jesus for Christmas.
Their work was presented at the local church which made them feel very emotional and proud.
These images portray our work together with one of them chanting beautiful prayers in their language as they worked.

I feel very honored to have been able to work with these youngsters, these young men who will become the adult men of tomorrow, leading the global world with an attitude sculpted by the experiences they have lived.
I have met youngsters who have gone through a great deal, who carry within them so much sadness and pain, disappointment and fatigue as well as worry for their future.
Despite all this, I have been able to open a small door into their souls, as they have very gradually opened up to me, not without difficulty, and I was able to encounter the enormous power of their personalities, after having had to confront so much in their young age.
I have seen their courage and tenacity as well as their resourcefulness as they put their all into manifesting that which they desire, with whatever is at hand.

I was extremely impressed, but above all, I had the opportunity to see and sense their deep faith, which is strong and inexhaustible.
This was a very touching and inspiring experience for me, that has taught me very much, and has yet again convinced me that we have so much to learn from one another, instead of being afraid of the ‘other’, for we All have so much to contribute to this mutual existence.
It is so much more beneficial to us all to open and collaborate, to create a better world together, than to remain held in contradiction with one another, nourishing the separation which leads us to destruction.
I am full of hope that these youngsters will carry into their future experiences which will lead them to create a world of tomorrow that is more open, tolerant and harmonious.
As for myself, I have become richer in spirit to have been able to meet them, and for this I am deeply grateful.
May we All be blessed to learn from each other and grow, Amen
May they be Protected and Blessed on the continuation of their journey, Amen.*Recemment j`avais l`opportunite d`etre benevole en travaillant avec des jeunes refugees Eritreans ici en France.
On a travaille sur l`art et l`ecriture expressive en Anglais et on a cree une scene de la Nativite pour Noel.
Leur oeuvre ete presente a l`eglise locale, ce qui les a rendu tres emues et fieres.
Ces images montre notre travail ensemble avec un d`eux qui chante des jolies prieres dans leur langue pendant qu`ils travailent.

Je suis contente, meme fiere d’avoir pu travailler avec ces jeunes, ces petits hommes qui sont les grands hommes de demain qui vont mener le monde global avec un attitude qui sera sculpte de leurs experiences vecus.
J’ai rencontre des jeunes qui ont beaucoup vecu, qui portent de la tristesse et douleur, de la deception et fatigue ainsi que de l’inquietude pour leur avenir.
Malgre tout cela j’ai pu ouvert une petite porte a leur ames, comme ils se sont tres doucement ouvert vers moi, pas sans difficultes, et j’ai pu rencontrer la force enorme de leurs personalites qui ont du confronter tellement dans leur age si jeune.
J’ai vu leur courage et tenacite ainsi que leur ressource en se mettant a fond a manifester ce qu’ils desirent avec les moyens qui existent.
J’ai trouve ca impressionant,
Mais surtout j’ai eu la chance de voir et sentir leur foi profonde, forte et inépuisable.
Cela été une experience touchante et tres inspirante, qui m’a apprit enormement et qui m’a convencu de nouveau qu’on a tous tellement a apprendre l’un de l’autre au lieu d’avoir peur du “different”, car on a tous a contribuer a cet existence mutuel.
Mieu a s’ouvrir et collaborer pour creer un meilleur monde ensemble que de se tenir en contradiction l’un de l’autre en nourissant la separation qui amene a la destruction.
Je suis rempli d’espoir que ces jeunes vont porter a leur avenir des experiences qui les ameneront a creer un monde de demain plus ouvert, tolerant et harmonieux.
Moi , de ma pars je deviens plus riche en esprit d’avoir pu les connaitre, et pour cela je suis tres reconnaissante.

En esperant qu`on puisse tous apprendre l`un de l`autre et grandir, Amen.
Je prie que ces jeunes seront proteges et benis dans le continuation de leur chemin, Amen.

I live my Dream

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

I would like to share with you something personal..very personal..

Yesterday I made a special sale

I sold a combined order of 6 embroidered pouches made by my Palestinian sisters with whom I work as part of my Project Aakhda, within my original Mother project “Kahliya

These pouches I was told by my customer, will be gifts for the bridesmaids at a Palestinian wedding in the states, a lovely reminder of Palestinian culture.

I burst into tears..

I was so moved I could not even begin to explain to this customer..

This ..was so beautiful..a beautiful sign from the Universe confirming my efforts..

 

These days once again there is such a horrible situation of war between Israel and Palestine..once again I remain overwhelmed ..frustrated and helpless..wishing I could with a whiff of my wand remind everyone that we are all here in the name of Life and Love, not destruction..

No..I did not stop the war with this interaction..

But I planted more seeds of Love, the Target I have set out to do, from the beginning of my Journey..

I`ve created more hope for the women I work with.. Delivered their message of Being, of Creating, of Existence..Ive planted another inch in Promoting the Message of Love from within our Collaboration which is born and developed in Love and Ive contributed to the continuation of a culture on this earth. I`ve been a link of love in the preservation of this people and the preservation of LOVE between People..and I feel Honored.

This has been a very long  journey, one of many obstacles.. ever since I`ve set out on the path to Promote Love and Peace..

But at the end of the day..I know my Truth and I can but live fully and purely by it..for it is my Birth Purpose and my Contract with the Divine, the reason for Being here, for having Been Created.. I shall walk this path even if at times I stumble, but I shall never please another master but my Soul -Seed of the Divine. I am here to serve Humanity as best I can, and God is my only witness. My Goal is to bring us all back to the LOVE in which we are created and see that we are all connected and all needed in this family of Creation. We all play a beautiful part in the diversity of this Global family and it is in respecting each other that we all deserve our place in this space.

 

Today I shall Die to All that is a Lie/Mia Leventhal

Today
I shall Die
To All
That is a Lie

Today I shall Die
To all which
Allows me not
To fly

Today I shall
look you straight
In the eye
If ye
Shall not meet me there
I shall not sigh,
Nor shall I cry.

For I have mountains
To climb
And
Rivers to swim
With
My companion
The Blessed sun in the sky.

Today I shall Die
To All that is a lie
And
I shall never again
Ask why ~

 

 

I consider myself a resident of the world as I respect All and derive from many cultures fragments of the truth that resonates with me. My origins are Jewish and I have lived in Israel where I have begun with the project Aakhda, and where my family continues to live today.

My love for the Palestinian people is as my love for “my” people as is for ALL people..

My Love is for ALL.

We share this existence and no one owns any land just as we dont own the air we breathe for it is all given to us by the creator and we all deserve a part in it to exist in security respectfully of everyone else.

I believe we share this land and we are to love and blossom in it with brotherly love just as the air the water and the trees on it and I believe it is in Israel`s interest as well as the Palestinians for Palestine to thrive alongside Israel and collaborate with eachother for this region to become the beautiful pearl it is meant to be.. we are the seeds that we plant and We Need to Plant Seeds of Love Beauty and Collaboration.

I am here for you/Mia Leventhal

I am here for you

My Brother,

I have returned to know you

My Sister.

I have come to hold your hand.

This may be my land

but it is yours too

just as we share

the same God

Me & You.

I promise to do my best

to help you stand straight

we shall always eat

from the same plate.

If you take my hand

we will show the others

what true Love is all about.

If you allow me

to walk by your side

we shall prove the errors

of our Brothers,

without a doubt.

 

 

Although I do not live there today,my personal journey has taken me back to France recently, where I used to live before, I intend to do what I can to help promote this understanding and help Palestinians in what I can to have a fruitful existence next to the Israelis both in respecting each other, as well as my desire to continue to promote the same seeds of Love and Respect all over the Globe for all people for we are All brothers and sisters.

 

And yet.. I am a small human with my own journey and challenges, but I can only resolve to my intention doing what I can when I can.

Unfortunately ,since I have started with my project I have encountered a series of personal traumatic events which have thrown me off my horse repeatedly to a point I feared if and how I could really hold to my promise.I have also feared the girls I work with will believe I have let them down..but I have never let go of my vision no matter what I went through and in my heart I stayed totally connected.Ive been extremely touched to see on several occasions how they not only understood me but played an active part in supporting me with their love in some of my difficult moments, which further reinforced to me the sincerity and preciousness of this bond of true love we have which transcends culture, land, religion, language, time and distance..

I have only been here in France a year and it has taken me most of this time to heal from prior events, strengthen and begin to re establish myself and Kahliya .

This is also why I am so touched and excited by this special kind of interaction, for at this symbolic time the Universe is sending me a confirmation for my efforts , Now is the time to pick up and continue my endeavor planting seeds of love and light in the midst of this turmoil,.

Now that perhaps I feel in some ways more ”alone”, after having had to let go of  the sense of “belonging”  in so many ways all for the purpose of pursuing my truth,yet stronger than ever as I am ever so more with ME and my growing link with the Divine.

I am no longer divided, I am complete and whole with my Divine purpose and I shall continue to do what I can to deliver this message of Love

I let go of any obstacle including those within me, that hinder my path for this is a crucial time to help bring us all TOGETHER as ONE.

 

I live my Dream / Mia Leventhal

I dream a dream,
I live my dream…
Can you see me beam?

Dreaming of more beauty
in this world,
and what I wish to see..

I dream a more fascinating dream
that of being more fully me.

This is the dream
I choose to live.

I love being me..
