Theology, Illusion, and Bahari

Why is diversity of religious life, both traditional and modern, in Indonesia is it harmonious and peaceful? Not just recently, but since a long time ago; not hundreds but thousands of years ago?  What is meant by the rhetorical question above, is the spiritual reality of the nations in this Archipelago since the paganistic (polytheistic) era, is a fact that greatly respects the beliefs/religion of other parties, including the procedures of worship. What develops, as I often emphasize, is not “tolerant” life (which in practice still contains limitations), but “acceptance” as a cultural attitude where all different things are taken as part of (the existence) of a person/group, of me/us.
