Open Mindedness

Dear friends

As of tomorrow we will write alternatively in the page of the Center for our friends around the world and in the page of Dorit Kedar ( see purple fish as background), where we will share material ,as we already do, to expand the horizons.
We believe that the more one is exposed to the wealth of the world – science, music, the arts and different views on religion – the more open minded one becomes.
The more open minded one is the more tolerant .
The more tolerant- the better abilities of adjustment to circumstances and the better abilities to cultivate self responsibility, universal ethics and the courage to protect these values without the use of violence.

Open mindedness depends on a daily practice of emotional non dependence and self sufficiency.
Only then ,awareness gradually learns to free itself of the herd psychology and avoids falling in the trap of needing outer confirmation and applause.
By cultivating self sufficiency ,awareness acts with no concern for awards or revenge..
..It learns to observe more and more the non finite variety of Reality and react or non react accordingly.
Awareness of this kind is not tempted to accumulate power or be deprived of power.
Rather it is engulfed by the ever appearing and disappearing path,always leading forwards towards the unknown,always creating a new ground for new revelations.
Thus instead of being a prisoner of its own expectations and traumas, it forms part of the Great Stream of Being and Non Being.

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.
