My name is Julia Poyda. I was born in Ukraine in an era of the Soviet Union. I have been living in France since the age of 20. I traveled a lot. I am married, we have four children. I am an artist.
Why I’ve decided to take part in the project:0
1) I am a religious woman. I have been always religious since I remember myself though I was born in the family of atheists. I always got a feeling that many people from my environment live “somehow incorrectly”, having entirely focused on the material aspect of this world. Now, years later, I manage to understand people better, I do not treat them so categorically. And so, I consider that all of us participate in the realization of the Plan of our General Creator. I notice that the humanity is at a transformation stage on the way of its Realization, and this process is painful. We can, and we have to support each other on the road. On this road, we are a single whole as fingers on the same hand. So, helping each other, we actually help ourselves.
2) Since the early childhood. I felt the unity with people around. Such phenomena as “competition” seemed something obviously senseless to me. So happens that I’ve had a lot of sufferings during one of the “dark” periods of my life. At that time, I gradually started understanding that the only thing that I want is that none of the people felt anything similar and in our homeland, pain and sufferings lessened. So I came close to defining my calling.
3) I think that each person has to follow the calling because this is the only way to fulfill yourself and be happy. I understood that my calling is to serve beautiful and help people. Therefore, I chose art and charity for myself. I think that such phenomena as beauty and harmony come to us from the area of “transcendental”, awakening those qualities, which bring us closer to the realization of the Divine Plan. And as for the desire to help people, I started realizing it through participation in various charity events.
And there was a miracle!
When I decided for myself that I would be faithful to my calling and contribute as much as I can, rapid changes to the best began in my life. So I faced the thing that I can only call as “law”. This law is that if you give something to the Universe, it will generously return it. But it is necessary to give sincerely, from the heart. Whether the principle of this law was meant in the statement: “One never loses by doing a good turn”?
I wish all of us, who are still here, while we are alive, have learned compassion. So the world in which we live will become purer and kinder.
