A religious democratic context. Letter to Magdalena organization, Jerusalem

Dear Father Juan Solana

 

Re: Bringing the Vision to Life

We, through The Center of Inter-religious Peace,  keep working to spread the ideas of Peace, Understanding and Inter-religious communication.

As you, Dear Father and our readers may know,  believe that The  Divine is beyond  the phenomena of time and space.

Thus , we believe that The Divine is not forcefully  linked to any of the  creation phenomena or creatures but is mirrored trough them.

We will be more than happy to contribute in text, lectures or art  this idea which gives an equal importance to any of the human beliefs along civilization.

There is no exclusive religion. There are religious feelings.

There is no God of such and such people.

Rather there are people , along history, who refer to God.

These ideas are very difficult to understand . More difficult to accept as acceptance means overcoming territorial feelings with respect to one’s own religion. 

Till this day, no religious institution has  addressed us or given its support, as the idea of  giving up absolute truths  seems to be enormously complicated.

We though witness that in the past and more so in the present the fervent believers might become the fervent fanatics.

Change is to be accomplished by giving up  being the speakers in the name of the One.

We here invite all the believers to support our way and so increase the alternatives to a truly democratic religious context, in which every way is legitimate but it is just a way towards the Divine.

With the humblest of feelings,

Dorit Kedar

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.
