The Invisible Reality
All over the world millions of Christians repeat their confession of faith, the Credo, as part of their liturgy: I believe in God, the omnipotent father, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible Yet how many among those believers can connect a mental image or concrete understanding with these words? With the enormous progress in the sciences and technology of the past century, people have become used to the idea that all that counts in their lives is what can be grasped with our external five senses or what is scientifically proven.
Nonetheless, it is also obvious that we also find our orientation based on our internal senses, we follow our suppositions, fears, inklings. We feel it when someone stands behind us even though we have not looked. We are creative, are inspired and, above all, we experience in our dreams a reality which does not correspond to the rules of the external reality that confronts us. Where do these emotions come from? What are the sources of sadness, joy, love, anger, anxiety and all the others? None of the natural sciences have been able to supply satisfactory answers to such questions.
For some people, the invisible world is most clear when they are grieving for a person who has died a person whom they still feel to be nearby. At all times, all over the world and a million times over one can find so-called paranormal perceptions or capabilities which have increasingly also been the subject of scientific proof and study. Yet due to embarrassment or fear hardly anyone speaks of these phenomena.
Thus we have learned to take seriously only that which we perceive by means of our five (external) bodily senses. Our internal being mostly called the soul is just as capable of sensing perceptions as the bodily external being. Why should our soul not also be equipped with five senses? For many people it is sufficient if the perceptions of their inner being remain hidden and generally unconscious. Yet nobody should for this reason dispute the reality of an invisible world, as Christians call it in their confession of faith, things invisible.
Our perceptions of the invisible reality are so diverse and convincing that a person does not need to take its existence on faith. All, regardless of their attitude towards religion as such, have equal access to this reality. Belief in things invisible is not a privilege of religious people, believers, alone, but is a necessity if one is to be able to explain the world in a reasonable fashion and lead a meaningful life. An understanding of the invisible reality around us negates the usual boundaries of time and space and gives our lives significance.
On the following pages you can meet a person who has spoken about his life in the visible and in the invisible realities in a completely matter-of-fact manner and with complete conviction. What he has to say inspires a person with courage to encounter the complete reality which surrounds us, freed from unnecessary anxiety. His words help to find still more significance in life. Above all, Carl Welkischs words can help a person to find reasonable explanations in those situations which are experienced but cannot be otherwise understood. Through contact with Welkisch many people have been able to shed their fear of life and to develop their own inner freedom.
Carl Welkisch was, first and foremost, a twentieth century Christian mystic see the pages The Mystic and Clairvoyance. His professional activities as a healer were closely connected to his life as a mystic. These pages hope to offer to the interested reader access to a person whose experiences in our time are still exceptional but which point to the development of humanity in future centuries.
A person who knew of the experiences and abilities of Carl Welkisch might have been astonished to meet such a friendly, humble and life-affirming man. To his friends, Carl Welkisch was a true friend advisor, companion and helper. It was not only his lively words which described a reality that is not readily accessible to most people, but also his unusual openness for all concerns that made him as admirable as congenial.
The following pages show pictures of Carl Welkisch and tell of his life as his friends and companions knew him. They intend to awaken curiosity about the possibilities reported by Welkisch, about the perception of a more complete image of the world than that allowed by our bodies or our senses or the natural sciences.
