How URI meets people

 

Last week I had a privilege to meet Suchith Abeyewickreme from Sri Lanka, URI Multuregion Global trustee here in Sofia, Bulgaria. He is a nice, very open and humble person with many skills and special dedication to interfaith work. We had a wonderful time together, visiting some of the most significant places in the city, having coffee and hot chocolate and sharing our thoughts and ideas. I realize that people from URI network from every part of the world have similar vision and dreams for the peaceful future of our common Earth despite of their religion background and culture. They could easily find common grounds and become friends.

Afghanis, Yemenites – and many others - live in a constant war situation. When in this conflict, you have lost your house, belongings and loved-ones, you are left with no choice. The only option is to flee. To leave all misery and distress, destruction and death behind. Are we still surprised that Europe is a predictable refuge?

Look with your eyes. See with your heart!

URI Europe Proverb, February 2017

 

You are in the supermarket pushing a cart. You are in front of the shelves with apples that are neatly stored according to taste, kind and variety. It is fruit you need for your health and you buy it, if the price is acceptable. You look at the quality label and then put a pack of six in your cart and go to the till.

It is not because you look that you see.

Your biological eye sees shapes and different colours. But do we actually 'see' what we are 'looking’ at?
