Ready to spread some Love out there?

Based on a poem I wrote reaching out to the ‘Other’ on the other side
Reminding us all how we are all the same ..Human, children of the same Creator,Brothers and Sisters
These days our Global family is still struggling with illusions of fear and separation
I wish to spread an essential message of Love, reminding us all who we are and that we are all interconnected.
Will you join me?

Aakhda is my Peace/Humanitarian project and it means “Together” in Ancient Arameic
The Language that Jesus spoke and the Origin of Hebrew and Arabic
Isnt it time to bring us all back Together?
United we are strong and we Shine*!

My Brother on the Other Side/Mia Leventhal

My Brother on the Other side
I have seen you fly
And you have seen me cry
We have nothing more to hide
Overcome the barriers of ignorance
Created by our fellow people
Hate in our hearts
Will never reside
Hold my hand
And let us step up together
Paving the way for a Brighter
United future

This Tshirt is a basic Men`s Tshirt or a more feminine designed T shirt with ‘Sister’ replacing ‘Brother’

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.

This is another piece of the new series “Weaving Love “, another part of my Humanitarian project “AAKHDA” inwhich I work with my Palestinian sisters in different themes of creative handcraft to help promote their work,aid in their income and create a dialogue of love !

In this series there is an exciting dialogue between my sisters and myself!
I am very enthusiastic about saving and promoting traditional handcraft and in this piece their traditional Palestinian embroidery is used to create the word “Peace” in a Mustard colored cotton thread on white cotton fabric, for which I created a frame by handstitching a  printed  silk (Remnants of the Paris fashion industry destined to be discarded)  in color theme of Mustard Pink and Brown to form a beautiful message of Peace!
This piece is backed with a creme color cotton fabric and signed “AAKHDA” at the bottom in Mustard color embroidery.

This is a lovely message of Love and Peace,carrying our loving energy within the dialogue of our work!
Wonderful gift of Love, Peace offering, decoration of beauty ensuring Peace and Harmony in the home etc

From Love..to Love..with Love..


Meet Julia! This sweet Angelic little girl asked her mom to buy this ”sunshine bag” made by my Palestinian sisters within project AAKHDA:  https://aakhda.com/2010/01/10/seeds-of-love/  ,

as her Christmas present from My online shop :http://www.etsy.com/shop/kahliya
I was immediately so warmed at heart by this girl`s enthusiasm that I did what I could to try and get it to her in time for Christmas..
I was then thrilled to further hear that she had heard about my project from her teacher who told the class in her school in N.Y.

Julia`s joy is my joy as she embodies the heart of this project..from love…to love…with love…

I love you dear Julia..bless your sweet heart..May you enjoy this bag with the love process it carries and may you blossom and shine and grow up one day to show the world more love with your pure heart..I am absolutely sure you will make us very proud of you..as we already are!

Much Love,Mia.
