It is not surprising that The Book of Inter-religious Peace, in Word and Image, is difficult to accept, though people are talking and writing about the necessity of inter-religious relationships and numerous conventions are held on the subject.
So that the project can be comprehended, the reader and seer of The Book need to accomplish a tremendous leap of consciousness.
The seeker of inter-religious peace must fulfill inner psychological transformation and abandon the animal nature which tends to grasp the world by means of territorial views, conditioned by the criteria of space and time. We are educated to approach the external world by the pertinence to the family, social layer, color, religion, profession, nation, continent and even planet and galaxy…
One sees the other through the curtains of learned pre-concepts, generally assuming that the other is of lesser significance and therefore lacks absolute truth.
The Book wishes to break through dogma and the writer believes in a deep and nearly absolute truth – God, by definition of HIS infinity, does not have a passport. As the Creator, The First Source – The Divine is Ever- Existent and therefore is not born and does not die.
The finite characteristic of all creatures is perhaps the real cause of the "stratum thinking", needing belonging as a security tool.
As each born creature, necessarily has his parents, the believers have adopted their different Gods as unique parents.
The Book, from this point of view, may offer a challenging content – It follows the Infinite and overt Character of the Divine and thus considers all religious trends as infinite paths towards the exploration of The Essence.
Each path contributes a small piece to the building of an interminable puzzle or worship system, within the fleeting time/space frame, towards the attempt to grasp Infinity.
Finite human minds are unable to grasp Infinity solely by the mental faculties, which are limited to a certain intelligence quantity.
The only Way to attain a grasp of Infinity is by developing something which is not hindered by obvious limitations.
The Book suggests evolving the Wisdom of the Heart by considering the life of the great mystics and their appreciation of God's fingerprints in Nature. One may, therefore, cultivate the Way of Love, unconstrained by comparison, hierarchy, and pre-concepts, usually existent in territorial thinking.
The concise wording and non-decorative imagery, serve as equivalents to the religious and spiritual credos, and wish to mark the interminable inter-linking among all main beliefs, considering these as fragments yearning to FEEL rather than UNDERSTAND the Divine.
If mental intelligence is forcefully limited, the emotional intelligence – is unlimited. One can always exercise Love and Compassion towards all co-livers of Earth, be they human, animal, plants or minerals.
When we feel LOVE, we naturally erase all separating notions – male versus female, nation versus nation, and color versus color.
The emotional system, when loving, tends to seek and find common denominators reigned by empathy and altruism.
In such affective state – we do not deter the differences but seek and find Communion.
Compared to a part of a Virtual Celestial Garment, in which all parts are meaningful, all parts can be felt as micro aspects of an Infinite Macro and therefore the work of interlinking among the different credos is of equal importance. The Virtual Celestial Garment is made of parts and correspondent joints.
