The quotation “There is no enemy none is…

The quotation: “There is no enemy, none is the other, and a sense of universal
brotherhood has come to me” was a revelation from Guru nanak (1469-1539)
that has powerful implications for Sikhs and Christians today.

It speaks of a powerful re-framing of traditional categories that, in our modern context, often promote
enmity and hatred between people. Guru nanak calls all of us to re-envision the
“other” and to see each other as co-sharers of the exact same source of the grace of
a loving God. When “one is filled with God’s eternal love there is no room for the
limiting chains of seeing your fellow children of God as the “other”.

Now I write, teach & coach mainly about interfaith as inter-spirituality - and how we can grow closer to our True Self. . As anyone who knows anything about IPF will realize my energy is curtailed - so I am concentrating primarily on 'inter-spirituality'. . In the past I would have said that: . 1) I run courses and give talks at conferences and in universities and colleges in the UK, China, USA, Canada, Scandinavia etc. . 2) I provide materials, outlines and lessons for Schools. . 3) My range of interests include personal development, learning and teaching, photography and film, the arts generally, spirituality and educational practice and theory. . 4) At the same time I continue developing the human-centred studies SunWALK PDS (People Development System) - a whole-person, high-achievement model for individuals, and for use in, NGOs, schools and other organizations. . 5) The key question that continues to animate me and my work remains, "What is it to be fully and positively human?" . Contact me via onesummit AT gmail DOT com (replace At with@ etc.). . All good wishes Roger (Dr Roger Prentice) . For those interested; My first degree is in English and Education. My masters is in Adult and Community Education. My doctorate presented a new holistic meta-model of education called SunWALK.
