The Case For Diversity and Dialogue


Posted by Jesus Garcia on Saturday, January 2, 2016

"There needs to be a conversational relationship between white eyes and colored eyes in America."

Diversity is our heritage.
Will diversity be our legacy?
We must practice what we teach.

Diversity is the quality or state of having people who are of different
races or who have different cultures within a group or organization.

Question is, are we mature enough to sit down and discuss
issues of diversity, including religion, gender and race?
As humanity moves into the Space Age, how can
we resonate with Grays and Greens if we can't
relate well to Blacks, Browns and Gays?

Hari Singh Bird Khalsa

It is our mission is to promote diversity and cultural
as taught by Guru Nanak Dev Ji, thereby bringing to
the fore issues of color and gender for the purpose of uplifting people
who have a history of being marginalized, using social media and other
means as platforms to inform various communities of the life experiences
and concerns of marginalized people with regard to the necessity for social
change, social justice, inclusion, compassion, tolerance, cultural literacy,
and growth in our human relations going forward in order to better facilitate
the current worldwide shift in global consciousness from tribalism, instability,
and extremism, to harmony, cooperation and enduring peace. And furthermore,
we welcome and support other organizations that promote the transformation of
as taught by Guru Nanak Dev Ji throughout his life and travels.

Our ultimate vision is to afford every person in the community
the opportunities to explore the sensitivities of the human spirit to
wit each person is inspired to (a) teach and interact with people while
maintaining a keen appreciation for their longing for inclusion, the innate longing
to belong within our human nature; (b) respond with compassionate consideration
and sensitivity to those racial, cultural, religious, ethnic, economic, political, social,
ethical, psychological, and philosophical differences that exist within every community.

Points To Ponder

"The true man of God sees no man as good or evil,
no man as friend or enemy." -- Siri Guru Granth Sahib

"It's time for us to convene a biannual Sensitivity Summit for
the purpose of promoting the inclusion and treatment of all people
equally and without prejudice irrespective of race, color, national origin,
gender, age, disability, culture, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, marital
status, social or economic status, or political, psychological or philosophical
persuasion, or any other Earthly distinction." -- Hari Singh Bird Khalsa

"The human mind was created to discriminate, e.g., make choices between
up and down, in and out, black and white. Therefore, we must be aware of our
tendency to use our discretionary abilities in order to marginalize and repress
people with whom we differ. We need to constantly see to it that we advocate for
pluralism and against tribalism in the interest of justice as taught by Guru Nanak Dev.
Our choices are to live for each other, or to live at each other." -- Hari Singh Bird Khalsa

"Any system of human organization that does not (or cannot) respect and
value counter-opinions or dissenting voices can never be truly unified and
it will never evolve intelligently. Why is this so? Because the dominant,
prevailing viewpoint will always be required to meet and to deal with
its polarity. Polarity is a law of reality." -- Krishna Singh Khalsa

"In accordance with the teachings of Guru Nanak Dev, the first Sikh of Sikh Dharma, I hereby pledge to respect the opinions of all persons irrespective of any that conflict with my own. In so doing I acknowledge that tolerance is the keystone of this, the Aquarian Age, the Age of Inclusion, Compassion and Service; I acknowledge that when I practice tolerance, I practice patience; I acknowledge that by practicing tolerance I express a strong assurance of my love for humanity; I further acknowledge that money and material wealth do not qualify nor assure anyone of my love for them. Therefore, I pledge to live by these acknowledgements in my relations with all persons, regardless of their race, gender, religious faith, color, culture or sexual orientation, and I pledge to live by the principle that while each human being is created equal yet unique, each person is, 'endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.' So help me, God!" -- See AkalCommittee13.com.
