Vom Glauben und Hoffen – The search for meaning

” Ich will alles, oder nichts”, sang Marlene Dietrich in einem ihrer Klassiker. (Fast) alles haben wir meistens schon, und doch fuehlen viele sich in unseren westlichen Gesellschaften oft leer und ohne tieferen Sinn. Uns fehlen gesunde Mythen, sinnstiftende Geschichten, die uns in unseren Leben anleiten…Um einen Anreiz zu bieten, tiefer in die moeglichen Antworten  auf die bewusst integrierte oder unterschwellig vorhandene Sehnsucht nach dem Sinn einzutauchen, werden hier unterschiedliche Glaubensansaetze und -richtungen vorgestellt.

” I want it all, or nothing” – that’s what iconic German singer and actress Marlene Dietrich used to claim in one of her famous songs. In our Western societies we (almost) seem to have it all, and yet many of us seem to lack a sense of purpose or meaning in life. As opposed to indigenous tribes or former forms of western society we lack healthy myths and meaningful stories that have the power to direct us in life. This section serves the purpose to delve deeper into possible ways of dealing with our longing for a meaning in life. It includes presentations of different philosophies and faith systems.
