A path to Healing and Inner Freedom
In the context of the Christian and thereby also Jewish root of German culture, the Jerusalem Friedensmal is dedicated to theinner journey that leads to peace and freedom. This inner journey serves to unfold our being. Through our very being, we externalize our values. We live and act from these values, even if we are often not aware of it. We change the world within ourselves.
SPIRITUALITY - The main aim of the Friedensmal is to promote peace and freedom. It encourages people to know themselves and to live the values of love, peace and freedom. The journey to a new world, to a New Jerusalem begins in one's own spiritual awakening. In recognising the ego, this awakening creates the basis for authentic relationships, both on an individual and cultural level.
ENCOUNTER - The 'Stone of Encounter' along the hiking trail and the 'Tree of Life' at the centre of the monument promote dialogue and relationships between individuals and between cultures. The Tree of Life symbolizes the connection between the material and the spiritual world, serving as a source of all life and thus fostering a shared sense of responsibility for one another. Encounter and the resulting relationships are not only vital for the individual but also key to overcoming societal divisions.
SOCIETY - The Jerusalem Friedensmal emphasizes the necessity of a positive identification with one's own culture. This not only provides a sense of security but also strengthens the awareness of one's own responsibility within the community. Those who are firmly rooted in their lives have the support to reach out to others and often find it easier to actively and wholeheartedly participate in social life. Only a tree with healthy roots has life, and our culture is deeply rooted in the Judeo-Christian heritage. The Jerusalem Friedensmal thus serves as a reconciling and healing symbol, contributing to Shalom in our relationship with Judaism. It lends new hope to the vision of a new world, inspired by the 'Idea of Jerusalem'.
