The Alternative Spirituality of The Book of Inter religious Peace

The Book of Inter-religious Peace and Spirituality

This essay is written in memory of the little baby killed by a morally blind Palestinian terrorist in Jerusalem and in support to the Palestinian people in Silwan, East Jerusalem  menaced  to lose their ethnic natural entourage facing an aggressive extreme Jewish  settlers, supported by the right winged Knesset members.

 

Along the civilization of the human being we can deter common traits in the belief system since ancient times to the day.

We can compare this belief system to a chain composed a one sized links of different coloration.

A schism is the main feature characterizing this belief system and it is mirrored everywhere:

The Creator

The Creator or Creators had created the world as an axiom, out of masturbation, out of Earth, as a product of uttering the Word, because of playfulness or out of boredom.

The Creation

The first version of creation was not successful and it took a second version to become final.

The Creatures

The first man and woman of the late version were sinners or tempted by a vicious Deity or Angel.

The Punishment

The human beings are punished for their temptation and are stigmatized by the first sin.

The Sacrifice

Man, following the belief of a schism created within the Creator or Creators themselves, wishes to overcome the inner schism or Evil and is ready to testify repentance by the motif of the sacrifice. Sacrifice may be manifested as self-sacrifice, the sacrifice of an enemy, of a witch, of a non-believer, of virgins or children, of a variety of animals.

Salvation 

By means of self-sacrificing or the sacrifice of the other – person or animal – repentance would be accepted by the Creator and the believer will be the subject of Salvation and overcome the finality of death.

The Book of Inter religious Peace and The Center of Inter-religious Peace wish to spread ideas, inspired by spiritual streams as Hassidic, Franciscan, Sufi, Tantric, Toltec, Zen, Shamanic Ways which took a different path so as to overcome the deep schism which characterized more orthodox beliefs.

Accordingly:

The Creator who creates time and space is mirrored in time and space but  at the same time is not defined by them.

Any definition would be legitimate as long as one comprehends that it is but one among many other definitions changing within time and space and entirely depending on the cultural context.

No one holds exclusivity on The Divine as the non-definable, by nature cannot be possessed.

All sentient beings are part of Creation, thus should not be sacrificed and killed on behalf of love.

Instead of the feelings of sin and blame, one may revere   the infinite gamma of the living phenomena: the infinite gamma of plants, animals, humans and natural manifestations and be in a daily awe experiencing the evanescent here and now.

Salvation may be practiced by spreading  love and tolerance towards all sentient beings every  single day.

About Dr. Dorit Kedar

Forced to continuously change nations, cultures and schooling - I had to develop a wider sense of communication, a way of thinking-feeling-behaving which stresses the common denominators. The need to adapt new landscapes and land-souls has taught instinctive means to overcome separatism, prejudices, dogmatic beliefs and suspicions. While looking for the common gathering denominators, I have also increased the ability of perception and individuation. Being constantly in estranged places has triggered psychological processes to turn the unfamiliar into familiar. As an art critic in the Israeli press, a curator, a writer - have always dealt with the otherness, the different and the infinite variety of the Existent. My Book of Peace is the result.
