Wer mich heute im Laden besuchen oder gar einkaufen kommt der könnte mich beim Lesen erwischen, denn “Wicca 404” ist da und bereits der Klappentext findet bei mir und meiner Einstellung grosse Resonanz und bestätigt das die Autorin und ich uns auf ähnlichen Wellenlängen befinden.
Our ancient ancestors did not share our modern understanding of cosmology, as evidenced by the tendency of pretty much every pre-science religion on Earth, pagan or otherwise, to locate this one tiny planet at the center of physical reality, where it surely appears to be to earthbound humans observing the circular movements of stars in the night sky, rather than where we now objectively know it to reside – on the insignificant edge of a minor galaxy nowhere near the center of anything.
Any religion that hopes to maintain its relevance in the age of quantum physics and the Hubbell Space Telescope must be able to offer meaningful spiritual insight into the real grandeur of our universe, on the smallest and largest scales, as it is revealed by modern science, as well as of the Earth’s place in that grand universe, and of Humanity’s role – not only in the life of the Earth, but also in that of the real physical Heavens the Earth inhabits, and of everything existing between Heaven and Earth as well. Such a religion must be flexible enough to incorporate new discoveries about Humanity, the Earth and the universe into its beliefs without surrendering its credibility, to welcome new scientific discoveries as puzzle pieces to be fit into a continuing revelation of an infinite spiritual truth.
I believe that Wicca is the one religion on Earth most uniquely equipped to face this challenge of modernity, for, in spite of even well-intentioned misrepresentations, Wicca is not now, nor has it ever been, solely an “Earth Religion.” Wicca is a religion that is centered in and reveres Nature – whether that Nature be expressed in the teeming life and wind and water of our planet’s biosphere, in the nuclear processes that energize our sun, or in the swirling push and pull of gravity that spins our, and every other, galaxy into being.
Wicca acknowledges that there is only one Nature, and it is everywhere…
Ich werde diesen, so ich dazu komme, später übersetzen und auf Deutsch hier reinsetzen. Auch “The Circle Within” trudelte ein sowie die ersten zwei Avatar-Staffeln. Langweilig wird mir also nicht so schnell werden.
