Peace Correspondent – VOF Mentor Love Letter


My dear (and unknown) Mentor:

It is exciting to write to somebody that you don’t really know, but at the same time, with this huge feeling that is a person who is working toward the same goal… this little but significant detail is able to make a magical approach among two persons that don’t know each other personally

Since now, I will be your “magician apprentice” in this fantastic road of cybernetic alchemy… and hopefully, both of us will be experiencing a transformation after work together.

It will be without any doubt, a wonderful experience from inside of us, and then, to be ready to show our changes outside, and share it with others fellows

According to my own experience, the inner work is necessary to find the base of peace, but latter, in some point, this search should carry you to other searchers, to put all the “peace pieces” together, and realize that our differences are precisely the secret of equality … to realize that the real knowledge is only a value when you dare to transmit the things that you know, and the things that you ignore as well.

We are individuals, but we are nothing if we still isolated. Inner power only has sense when you use it for something bigger. When you learn and teach in perpetual exchange, when you speak and listen.

I am in the middle of that step … it is my personal moment to bring the peace that I found, and to receive the peace that others have.

I thank you in advance for this split second that I am sure I will keep forever. I thank you in advance for your “master patience” and your hard words if I have to change some fault or prejudice… I know that the alchemy is already in its magical motion, since I was elected to be part of this huge lesson

Humbly. Xthina

Yes I understand.... :-)

Hi Sunita !!

Yes I know what you mean, I answered in spanish, because I received a comment in my language, but actually, below of that answer I wrote the translation in English, to others :-) When I replied Jennifer, I wanted that others could read my words to her

But I will keep in mind your advice. Thanks a lot !! ;-) love. Xthina " )

Peace finders

Dear Xthina,
It's great to hear from you. I felt honored when I received your love letter and read your feeling about the peace findings.

Yes you are right to get peace we should first know about our inner self and be fair with our self. When we are fair with our self then we would be fair with the whole world because then we know what we want to achieve and give to others, we get courage to face the world with all the truth and when start traveling on the road of truth then every thing beside and in front of you will become clear and all the fog will evaporate in seconds.
One more thing I would like to share that when you start knowing your inner self then you begin a journey on the way to search / find the Creator or God.
The next thing which you wrote in your letter is about speaking and listening, but I think as a child before speaking we should make a habit of listening not only hearing, as much you hear you become more aware about others feeling and remain non judgmental because we don't know what difficulties the person is facing.
So overall I think listening is more difficult and important than speaking.
Love and Take Care
Warm Regards

Not Sure about it

Hi Xthina,
I don't get your reply in my mail so I'm writting you late . Still I'm confused about the mentorship and the process. I recieved your love letter and wrote you back.

Xthina-Avila's picture

my fault !!

Hi Sabiha !!

Sorry ... my fault ... i didnt know that when I post "a new comment" you dont get an-mail ... Janice just told me that yesterday, can you believe it ?!?! I put my hans on my head, because until now i did that to answer to every comment in my posts !! XD

Anyway, better know latte than never.

Well ... maybe you are my dear mentor ... maybe not ... at the end of the day, it doesnt matter so much ... the important thing is that now we know each other, isnt ?! we will see latter if you are going to be my "master magicien" :-)

Kind regards ... hope that now you will receive an e-mail advising you about my reply !! Kisses from Mexico !

Hello Xthina, We are two

Hello Xthina,

We are two strangers walking on the same street but our point of destination is same.We all are learning from each others and moving forward.May be from now the distances between us are bridging up and we are coming closer to each other sensing each others feeling. I read one of your post about your experience of connecting a Combodian Poet and it was really amazing and a good learning for me.

Thanks for sharing such beautiful experience.

Love from Pakistan
