The Land of the Living and the Land of the Dead


The land of the living and the Land of the Dead may be considered as a psychological state of mind and a philosophical issue.

We can choose every moment which of these lands are preferable.

The Land of the Dead, though, seems an easier choice as here the gamma of colors and forms stay within the monotonous and defined grey.

Here the person tends to follow convention, a given belief system, a unique truth, an absolute theory, a cherished leader.

In this land the separation between the apparently right modus vivendi, faith, sex, gender, race and the wrong modus vivendi (referring to the same issues – is clear cut.)

Everything is dictated by the ethics of the territorial pertaining.

The Land of the Living is a constant adventure as the person has the sensation that action is needed according to the changing circumstances.

The circumstances have changing colors and forms because they are subdued to the Time and Space conditioning.

Awareness must be continuously awake and alert to adapt to the seesaw of Change. Instead of the state of receptivity to convention and tradition, one has to explore the Unknown.

By exploring the Unknown, searching, discovering, inquiring, wondering – awareness is amplified. Thus the brain, soul, spirit and energy become more pertinent.

The more we expose ourselves to the Unknown, the more alternatives we find, so as to flow with Reality.

Gradually the gap between Reality or the Becoming and the awareness, practicing the infinite Unknown – diminishes.

The lesser the existential gap- the more livelihood one has.






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.
