Gespräche mit Gott, Band 3: Kosmische Weisheit: BD 3 by Neale Donald Walsch, Susanne Kahn-Ackermann

By Neale Donald Walsch, Susanne Kahn-Ackermann

Ganz im Stil der ersten beiden Bücher dieser Trilogie fährt Gespräche mit Gott, Bd. 3 damit castle, Licht in die Unklarheiten unseres spirituellen Daseins zu bringen. Diesmal befaßt es sich jedoch nicht mit individuellen und globalen Fragen, sondern wendet sich den "universalen Wahrheiten" zu, die alle Stufen der Existenz betreffen -- vom Mikrokosmos bis hin zum Makrokosmos.

Es fällt schwer, Gott zu kritisieren, aber wenn er so nett ist, wie er in Walschs Bücher dargestellt wird, dann wird er gegen die schäbige Rede von einem "strukturellen challenge" sicherlich nichts einzuwenden haben. Ein erheblicher Teil von Gespräche mit Gott, Bd. 3 greift auf Themen zurück, die bereits im ersten Band ausführlich behandelt wurden. Auch wenn ein gewisses Maß an Rekapitulation ganz nützlich sein kann, um darauf aufzubauen, so ist Walschs wiederholter Rückgriff auf frühere Gespräche für den Leser, der mit den ersten zwei Büchern vertraut ist, schon ein wenig frustrierend. Aber abgesehen von solchen unbedeutenden Makeln befaßt sich Gespräche mit Gott, Bd. 3 mit einigen der faszinierendsten Themen, die einem unter einem sternenklaren Abendhimmel in den Sinn kommen können: was once geschieht, wenn wir sterben? was once ist Zeit? Sind wir allein im Universum?

Walschs conversation mit dem Schöpfer setzt diese und weitere Unwägbarkeiten in verständliche Worte um. Wenn diese Offenbarungen wahr sind -- und es liegt letztlich an uns, ob wir sie nun als Wahrheiten ansehen oder nicht --, dann ist das Universum ein äußerst faszinierender Ort, und wir sind noch weit davon entfernt, unser capability, es zu verstehen, zu erkennen. Nichtsdestotrotz -- das Wesentliche, was once Gespräche mit Gott, Bd. 3 klarstellt, ist die Tatsache, daß wir das Universum verstehen können, wenn wir es so wollen. --Brian Patterson
