By Adam Fischer

Wer oder was once steckt eigentlich hinter dem Glück und Unglück auf
der Welt? Gibt es intestine und Böse wirklich? used to be kommt nach dem Tod?
Warum ist das Leben so geheimnisvoll und wohin führt es am Ende für
jeden Einzelnen? Können wir als Menschen diese Fragen überhaupt
selbst beantworten, oder kommen die echten Erklärungen zu Sinn und
Wert des Lebens von anderer – höherer – Stelle? Und wenn Gott heute
noch mit uns redet, wie macht er das?
Adam Fischer widmet sich in dieser Arbeit – neben seinen autobiografischen
Einsammlungen im Lebensrückblick – einem weniger beachteten
Thema in der neuzeitlichen Diskussion um Spiritualität und
Weltsicht: die Prophetie. Ob es sich dabei um Weissagungen, Offenbarungen
oder Kundgaben handelt, und dass die göttlichen Mitteilungen
durch verschiedene mediale Persönlichkeiten empfangen werden, mag
für den interessierten Leser zu erforschen spannend sein. Viel wichtiger
als das aber erscheint dem Autor die Tatsache, dass Gott überhaupt mit
den Menschen spricht und diese nicht ohne einen Kommentar zu Ihrem
Leben hier auf der Erde lässt.
Mit Bescheidenheit trägt er plausibel vor, was once ihm seine jahrzehntelangen
inneren „Wanderungen“ durch die Fragen nach dem Warum,
dem Wohin des Lebens eingebracht haben. Mit angemessener Vorsicht
gibt er dem Leser Anstöße für eigene Nachforschungen nach dem „Dahinter“
aller Augenscheinlichkeit und realistisch scheinenden Weltenbegrenzung.
Er ermuntert jeden, sich die Zeit dafür zu nehmen, selbst
theoretische und praktische Studien zu betreiben, für die hier reichlich
Recherchematerial zusammengetragen wurde. Besonders die Lebensund
Herzensführung betont Adam Fischer, denn diese sei – smooth ausgedrückt
– die eigentliche Kommunikation mit Gott. Ausgehend von
dem Beispiel des schöpferischen Tätigseins der höheren size lässt
sich simpel und logisch darauf schließen, denn die Essenz des Lebens
lässt sich schließlich nicht erlesen.
