According to the Hopi Prophecy we are now in the latter days of The Time of Purification. We are in the process of resolution of polarities we have caused through our limited comprehension of universal principles.
What role do these polarities feed on our human evolution? Why do we need Yin and Yang, day and night, light and dark, wealth and poverty?
What these polarities : Democracy versus dark dictator's in Syria, Iran and more…..shows to the human world? Do we really want to see and digest these non simple polarities?
Living and working in Israel as a :mother to 3 children(one is now in the middle of his 3 years army), being a 5 Rhythms teacher ,Aromatherapy lecturer and organizer of the Movement Medicine School workshops in Israel-this is a huge world of polarities to hold and to deal with.
As a second generation of the holocaust, who wants very much to find a bridge by using dance, art, music, touch and humanity between people –its very challenging not to fall to the world of polarities/politics/blaming game that is so strong these days.
In many of my aromatherapy projects in Israel, we have very wide range of representatives of the Israeli society- Arabs, Druze, Bedouins, Ethiopians workers that work and study with lots of compassion to bring their contribution to their work with the elders population in Israel-without any feelings of being different or being out of the society in Israel. Many times, it seems that it’s a reflection of some ideal world that is so hard to find in day to day life in Israel.
In the Bible its written that at the dates of the Messiah the light will win the dark powers….
So today dancing the conflict between these polarities come to a very sharp wave:
The Iranian leader shouting that Israel does not have the right to exist-who from the west really wants to deal with it without paying an economical price with the weapon and oil industry?
Who from the west wants to deal with the Kurdish Holocaust by the Turkish in Kurdistan?
Who wants to deal with the Chechen victims of the Russian aggression?
Who wants to deal with the innocent citizens that were killed by the Americans, European armies in Iraq?
Who wants to deal with the suffer that the borders and the barriers in the west bank creates to the Palestinians ?
Who wants to deal with the fear and stress that creates so many terror attacks in our area?
Living in Israel-a country that each step here is a symbol of polarities is not a simple challenge.
We have here so many cultures, languages, social groups, minorities, different perspectives on our complex history, endless battles on our tiny land and so much disinformation in the media about our reality.
For me-To identify with the Israeli-Arabs that were extracted from their houses in Israel-is at the same time identification with the suffer of many Jewish that were extracted from their houses in the Arabs countries ,as to identify with the suffer of the millions Jewish that were extracted from their houses in Europe during world war 2.
Being a Israeli Jewish citizen is a good reason to defend and clarify so many stereotypes and disinformation about many events that happens here each minute…like:
The famous story about the aggressor and victim roles with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict:
Who is the victim and who is the aggressor? If I am a citizen of a tiny town in Israel and for 8 years being bombed by the Hamas organization=what am i?A victim or aggressor?
If I am a citizen in Gaza and the Hamas uses my house as a military center-what am i? a victim or an aggressor?
1.5 millions of poor people lives in Gaza-who is responsible for their quality of life? The Israelis who shares a border with them and supply electricity, limited food trucks and medical treatment? Or the Egyptians who shares with Gaza a border on the other side? or maybe the Hamas organization that was elected by the 1.5 millions Palestinians in Gaza?
If I am an Israeli solider(Gilad Shalit) that has been captured by Hamas-terror organization 4 years ago-not seeing the sun light, neither a red cross representative for these 4 years-who am i? www.habanim.org/en/index_en.html
Who knows in Europe how many Israelis are taking care of sick Palestinians and taking them as volunteers from the borders to get medical procedures in Israel? How many of you know that during the horrible war in Gaza the Israeli army-IDF has a special unit that takes care of special medical needs of the innocent Palestinians in Gaza ? Probably nobody knows about it in Europe because its against the polarity game that the media so love.
How many of you heard about the family circle of Palestinians and Israeli families that have created amazing organization that work together and trying to find very human way to communicate without violence on the base of their common suffer and loss .
The mission of the Israelis-Palestinians families circle:
• To prevent further bereavement, in the absence of peace
• To influence the public and the policy makers – to prefer the way of peace on the way of war
• To educate for peace and reconciliation
• To promote the cessation of acts of hostility and the achievement of a political agreement
• To prevent the usage of bereavement as a means of expanding enmity between our peoples
This organization is a beautiful proof that despite the ancient-historic power of the polarities –people who share the same vision because of their suffer, common history or wide perspective can create new way of dialogue-dance.
During a meditation dance in the E-Motion workshop-June 2010 with Yaacov and Susannah in the south -desert part of Israel-I have a beautiful vision that supports this idea:
I saw an international village that is being build by the UN on the ground of South Gaza-at the border between Israel and Gaza. In this village there are no polarities nor conflicts-Palestinians and Jewish are working and dancing together, creating a "peace" of land that creates peace, common communication and conflicts are dissolving…new paradise garden…
I believe that the main target these days is to find many ways-as possible, that will use dance, art , music and more creative ways to bridge and connect people from different social groups anywhere on the planet without falling to the game-space of polarities and politics.
Waiting with lots of patience and intention that my vision will become true in these not simple days….
Love and peace,
