Surrender or Fight - Facilitator: Yves de Morsier

Awareness means clear-sightedness and discernment. We know that, in order to live in peace, we need to accept the world as it is and to love what is. Yet we cannot tolerate injustice and oppression. How do we then find the right balance between discernment and judgement, between surrender and fight? This is a fine line.
We will investigate what is meant by "will of God" and which role evil plays in our lives. What is authentic surrender? When do we have to discern? When do we have to judge the actions of others? How do we distinguish between the persons and their attitudes or acts? When do we have to fight and resist? Trust, faith and hope are evidently dimensions of this form of authentic surrender.
Cost: DCH donation plus contributing some food to share.

  • A reflection about the election system in Australia. Nowadays the two party system prevents minorities to be represented in parliament. By contrast a proportional system would allow these minor tendencies to be active and it would break the polarisation between the two major forces. Their presence in parliament, as so far unrepresented perceptions and tendencies, would generate new forms of alliances and it would foster a true public debate about the society we want to implement. Election system in Australia and the corresponding example based on the last elections (2019) About Aboriginal issues:
