Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau was more than just a singer. He was man of the word, for him everything was at stake. Read more:

Eleven days ago I read the following headlines in the news:

“Obituaries - Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau - Sublime baritone who became a pivotal figure in the cultural rehabilitation of post-war Germany.”

”Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, classical singer, dies. German classical singer Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau dies at the age of 86.“

“Paying tribute to the masterful German classical singer Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, who has died aged 86.”

„German singer Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau dies – Baritone regarded as finest lieder singer of his generation and titan of classical music dies in Berlin, aged 86.“

„Singer, painter, conductor: Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau is dead. He was one of the most important classical singers of the 20th century: The baritone Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau. Shortly before his 86th birthday the born Berliner now died in Bavaria.“

„Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau was more than just a singer. He was man of the word, for him everything was at stake. Now the singing poet went off the world stage – shortly before his 87th birthday.“

These news caused me to think about what I read quite a number of years ago and that was about a statement of Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau where he expressed his eagerness to ask God why he allows it that so many children have to suffer here on earth.

Such questions arise easily in the mind of men and in many cases are used as arguments against God but can also lead to an investigation of spiritual things – if the person is really willing to get to know more about life and especially about where we come from.

And where we come from is the pivotal point.

In order to understand such question we first have to understand our whole background, that we were created as divine, God-like beings, and that we got arrogant and turned against God and that it is now about to find out if we stopped this haughtiness and are prepared to be genuine and make good what we made bad and are prepared to run back to God.

And there are beings who decide to go to this planet Earth in order to prove themselves and to become overcomers and deal with their challenging faults and overcome them.

And in order to do this they agree to a life here that might not be the most comfortable one.

They not only agree to a life with problems, they also agree that memory of the past will be taken away from them and that they therefore do not know about their past and also do not know about what they agreed to do or to attempt to do here.

It is about proving that a person is really genuine and tries to achieve the right things out of his own initiative and out of his own good intentions and making use of the gift given to him: intellect, heart and mind.

Now to achieve something difficult and challenging and new is actual quite normal for a human being.

Imagine a well-educated person with a professional background. He could live a comfortable life and go to an office in the morning and in the evening to his nice home and enjoy family life. But now he decides to climb into a bullet and be shot into space and to live in a space station or be shot to the moon in an adventure where a return to earth is quite risky because it has never been done before.

Such a person takes upon him quite a lot of unpleasant things, but all this does not count much against the high things he aims for.

It is easy to challenge God with accusing questions but what kind of effort has such a person done to tackle the really important questions of life? How eager has he been and what effort has he undertaken to really find out about life? The most important things in life are often simply not done and to compensate such shortcomings with accusations against God is not very convincing.
