Some thoughts by Dorit Kedar, The Center of Inter-religious Peace, for the event initiated by Professor Serena Gianfaldoni ,University of Pisa, Italy, for Stanford University, USA, 21st of July.
On Peace, Dialogue and Co-living
Any attempt to define The Divine, beyond time and space, is illusive and therefore the source of all inter-cultural and inter-religious conflicts.
The infinite temporal phenomena within time and space mirror Infinity or The Divine beyond and within time and space.
The body of any living creature is dependent on basic conditions and habits to survive while the evolved soul and spirit have the potential to transcend cultural frames and become inter-cultural.
The foundation of an Inner Temple by individuals who seek the common ground to everything is the gate towards co-living in peace and dialogue.
Rather than following an ultimate dogmatic religious truth – the wise soul builds an infinite temple of infinite truths to mirror Infinity or The Divine.
The students are welcome to consider the following issues:
The dialectics existent between the body- dependent for physical survival on daily routine of renewed food, defecation, sleep and exercise- and a non-routine need to renew feelings ideas and energy by the continuous creation of new mental and emotional interlinings.
In most of the cases the soul and spirit are magnetized by the physical routine and habits of the body, and thus become static and stagnate.
The soul and spirit which do not exercise permanent renewal – are the source of religious and cultural coercion, racism and prejudice.
You are welcome to google the last exhibition of The Book of Tolerance.
