Out beyond the ideas of right-doing or wrong-doing there is a field — I’ll meet you there. ~Rumi
I heard this quote yesterday when listening to Elizabeth Lesser on TedTalks. She spoke about “taking the other to lunch“. By other, she refers to someone who has a different belief structure and dialoguing with that person in order to break down preconceptions and stereotypes. Lesser, an activist from the left, spent lunch with an activist from the right. They agreed on ground rules and created a list of questions to ask one another. It made me think who I would want to do this with.
