Have you ever met Beauty in your saddest moment..?
I know it sounds weird..
But seriously.. as weird as it may seem, have you ever felt ..for even a tiny second.. a swift glimpse of heightened emotions from within the swamp of sadness, a certain “high” for a brief second that arises upon it all and just takes you into a lightness.. a beauty.. a brief encounter with the understanding.. that it`s all ok.. that we are all ok.. all the players in the act are only doing what they can.. going through whatever they`re going through .. and everything is just as it should be…and that it is actually not only all ok…but somewhat in a strange unexplainable way.. Beautiful..?
I guess this is pure understanding that arises from the depths of the soul and manages to briefly break through all our barriers of fear , to catch that glimpse and then subside back into ”comfortable” known zone.. But what if we would have the courage to stretch that glimpse a tiny bit further.. and further… into understanding we can actually rest there.. and live on from there…now wouldn’t that be truly beautiful..
Just a thought..
Well…you can count on me to find the only existing Egyptian in the whole area of villages here..! What a great guy Akram and his lovely Italian wife Simone who have a sandwich place in the near village.
When I told him I am half Egyptian and asked him if he serves “Foul” and “Houmus” , his eyes were shining..being the sole Egyptian in the area, he was so excited! He just came back from Visiting Cairo and said although he never managed to sell these dishes in the area, he took out what he had brought back for himself from home for the upcoming Ramadan..He was pleased to hear that my family lives in Tel Aviv and that I am devoted to Peace in the region as he wishes for so much himself.. what a wonderful encounter…brushing up on Egyptian expressions and dishes..reliving what we miss…I have made myself some more new wonderful friends..! A beautiful world is just there…just beneath our fingertips…shall we reach out and touch it..? Amen
In deep gratitude
May this new door open . . and may my new chapter commence.. open sesame… 🙂
This is why I am moving to the village in the south…this is one of my new friends..Said..he brought over a bag of fresh Fava beans as he knows I love ”Foul” and stayed over to help peel them…No matter where I am I will always search f…or simplicity.. and when I`ve found other souls who share with me this Joy.. I know I`ve found the true value of existence.. right there.. in our simple yet warm embrace of togetherness…AMen..
I am peace ( II ) / Mia Leventhal
Turmoil surrounds me,
I search for Peace.
Confusion becomes me,
I search for Peace.
Events surpass me,
My journey seems to elude me,
I search for Peace..
For deep within
In my core
I am Peace..
