As we approach the 21st Century,
interreligious dialogue will be an indispensable tool for charting a new course. This art project solicits a dialogue of diversity through constructive interaction and open listening which can potentially encourage an attitude of peace. A renaissance in the mind of humanity will open the possibility of integrating a living wisdom.
Are we willing to allow Jesus and the philosopher Lao Tzu, to be positioned beside the Gods and Goddesses from the past? Buddha beside Mohammad? Our minds try and make sense of all these philosophies in one time and place but the heart accepts abundance and diversity with little or no problem.
COMMENT about the talk FROM MY SISTER
Yes, the hands are beautiful but then, this is no surprise. They are yours being shared by the world. I was reminded of a little story by Nathaniel Hawthorne of a little boy, later to become a mansearched his whole life for a face he had seen on a cliff. He had been told that the man was to bring peace to the world so every day, he went down to the dock to meet the ferry hoping he would be on it. The rest of the day, he spent staring at the face in the cliff. The man never came but when they laid him in his coffin, his face looked just like the face on the cliff. YOUR hands looked just like the hands on your icons…very beautiful.
You also sounded and looked more at peace than I have ever seen you when talking about yourself
That too was beautiful for me to see. I said a silent thank you to God for the acceptance you are finding in being the gifted person you are…less concerned about how the world accepts it. If you haven’t already, don’t do another take. This one was honest, spontaneous and just lovely from where I stand. Keep the faith. We are on a lifetime journey to who knows where. Forever just might be a journey and not a goal!!
