One Perspective on Understanding Our Religious Traditions
Author: The Bardo Group Beguines
The focus of "The BeZine," a publication of The Bardo Group Beguines, is on sacred space (common ground) as it is expressed through the arts. Our work covers a range of topics: spirituality, life, death, personal experience, culture, current events, history, art, and photography and film. We share work here that is representative of universal human values however differently they might be expressed in our varied religions and cultures. We feel that our art and our Internet-facilitated social connection offer a means to see one another in our simple humanity, as brothers and sisters, and not as “other.” This is a space where we hope you’ll delight in learning how much you have in common with “other” peoples. We hope that your visits here will help you to love (respect) not fear. For more see our Info/Mission Statement Page. View All Posts

Very interesting idea…a primaeval faith of all humans. I’ll have to think about that one!
Wonderful perspective – Catholic means ‘all people, in all times, all places hold the same faith’. Essentially Brother Stendl-Rast is describing the Baha’i World Religion.
(The Baha’i faith embraces all religions each bringing progressive revelations of universal, eternal spiritual tenants/truths to various epochs and regions.)
I love his metaphor of the room and the door. I believe that all of us live in the same house where the room is located . . . even if we don’t open the door to peek in.
