Synopsis

* -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Buchrückseite

Written by an anonymous English monk during the late fourteenth century, The Cloud of Unknowing is a sublime expression of what separates God from humanity and is widely regarded as a hallmark of Western literature and spirituality. A work of simplicity, courage, and lucidity, it is a contemplative classic on the deep mysteries of faith.

"Lift up your heart to God with a humble impulse of love and have himself as your aim, not any of his goods ... Set yourself to rest in this darkness, always crying out after him whom you love. For if you are to experience him or to see him at all, insofar as it is possible here, it must always be in this cloud and in this darkness." –– The Cloud of Unknowing

It is perhaps perfectly appropriate that the author of 'The Cloud of Unknowing' is himself or herself unknown. This is a spiritual classic, a masterpiece in the real sense of the word. The style of writing is grand, well-versed and perfectly in concert with the subject; the ideas contained are some of the most sublime and inspired pieces of writing ever written in the English language. The book does not subscribe to any particular denominational or institutional framework, making it a piece of art and wisdom available to the whole of Christendom, and even appeals to those outside the formal bounds of Christianity.
This work has been compared to the work of C.S. Lewis, Plato, and other Christian mystics and theologians, with good reason. 'The Cloud of Unknowing' is part of a chain, influenced by and in turn influencing many other mystical writers. This is not a work of philosophy or apologetics, as the author is not concerned to prove the existence of God or set up any sort of metaphysical framework which must be accepted. The world around us is a given, and God is a given, and our task is to order our attention and love toward God so that it incorporates and includes the reality that is around without distraction. One perhaps hears echoes of this in Tillich's ultimate concern?
One of the things that makes 'The Cloud of Unknowing' a popular piece on an ongoing basis is this respect for reality. The author does not require super-human feats of contemplative power; this would be to deny the reality of the creature that we are, as God's creation. Contemplative work must be done in tandem and in cooperation with the rest of our life's needs.

A very interesting description of a contemplative discipline conveyed intimately from an unknown teacher to an unknown student. The text is a mystic exploration of the divine that rejects the use of the intellect and the imagination, preferring an inner knowing, like a numinous experience based on feeling, a gnosis of the heart. An important theme is the difference between the active and the contemplative personality; others include the awareness of self, death of the ego, and advice on leading the contemplative life. Although this writing is deeply embedded in Christian tradition and I disagree with many of these beliefs, I still admire the author's gentleness and sense of humor. All spiritually-minded people will benefit from a study of this almost poetic text. The most beautiful sentiment is this: "For it is not what you are nor what you have been that God regards with his most merciful eyes, but what you would like to be."

5.0 von 5 Sternen He makes me feel that there's still something good left of our humanity. 27. August 2015
Von Sujittra Chaturongkul - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I bought it for the reason that it says it's a Christian classic, and also I'd heard a lot about this book while reading about Christian mysticism. It's such a great book. The author is warmhearted, witty, genial, down-to-earth, very mature, contemplative, deep type of a guy. After I left the book for a while, I had the sense of a "true peace" and a "comfort with God" ( his words in quotations ) when coming back to it.

Evelyn Underhill writes the Introduction and says " The MS from which it was made is unknown to us." It's still controversial who the author really was. But it was written around the latter half of the fourteenth century, England. There are so many things around and about him such as his other books, his being a cloistered monk, his being a Carthusian etc. which are still uncertain and unprovable.

No doubt that the book is a mystical treatise. It talks about how to get to God by going over the cloud of unknowing leaving behind the cloud of forgetting. All just have to be between you and God, other things else have to be forgotten. It's the "speedily springing unto God as a sparkle from the coal." There are two kinds of the church life, the active life and the contemplative life. The active life is the life of busying with all kind of religious activities such as helping the poor, the needy, and doing other charity works. The contemplative life "should be occupied, in reading, thinking, and praying" and "contemplative sitteth in peace with one thing." His view of praying is that, "Prayer in itself properly is not else, but a devout intent direct unto God, for getting of good and removing of evil." And God is, " The everlastingness of God is His length. His love is His breadth. His might is His height. And His wisdom is His deepness."

The quotations were just to let you know of how he writes and his main ideas. I would recommend this book for anyone, religious, or mystic. I love the author so much, he makes me feel that there's still something good left of our humanity.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Know and Experience God's Depth and Love. 16. August 2014
Von L. Reffett - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The book is written by an anonymous English monk of the 14th Century, and he starts out with a warning - Only those who are serious in being a "perfect follower of Christ" is to read this book. I found this book very helpful in understanding how to go beyond meditation, and the monk states the exercise is "to hold nothing in your mind, but place yourself in the presence of God." The cloud of unknowing is a reference to a spiritual reality that we do not always know what may be blocking or hindering our relationship with God. We cannot completely know or understand God, but in this exercise, we do not use our mind, thoughts, feelings, or even self, to try to understand God. We simply place ourselves in the presence of God, and He come to us in a deeper way. I am currently reading, Open Mind, Open Heart by Thomas Keating, which seems to be expanding on this monk's work and the contemplative life. Keating states, "God's first language is silence." God meets you in the silence, and you "let God draw your love up to the cloud, for he who seeks God perfectly will not take his rest of any angel or saint." We do not ask God for anything or seek enlightenment in this exercise. We do not engage in thoughts about God or put any image in our mind which becomes a spiritual cloud, obscuring our quiet time with God. It is like being in a room with a friend you love and trust, and you know each other so well that you do not need to talk, but you are just enjoy being together, enjoying each other's love and company. This exercise is not to replace other forms of pray or the study of God's Holy Word, perhaps through Lectio Divina, where you Red, Reflect, Respond, and Rest in the Scripture and God. I will end this with how the monk ends his book, "Blessings to you, Spiritual Friend, and I beseech Almighty God that true peace, sane counsel, and spiritual comfort in God with abundance of grace always be with you, and with all those who on earth love God. Amen."

1.0 von 5 Sternen Botched Kindle edition 17. Juni 2015
Von S. Crayne - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I had read about half of the William Johnston translation in an old copy of an Image paperback. I have old eyes- the forty year old pb had small print- so, knowing Underhill's own writing, I ordered her translation today on my Kindle, for the bargain price of 99 cents. Big mistake. I just deleted it without reading. It's just about illegible: no Table of Contents, formatted in some weird way with footnotes first, I couldn't make any sense of it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen for anyone interested in the tradition of Christian meditation 24. März 2013
Von Desiree Valenzuela - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
this was written in the 13th century, by an obviously intelligent, well educated, and warm-hearted monk with a real desire to help others. Not all meditation traditions/techniques derive from eastern (Hindu, Buddhist, etc) sources- a common misconception which I once believed myself. The language has been updated, but certainly not dumbed-down. God Bless our unknown author for sharing this with us... the methods described in this book are not easy, quick-fix, psycho-babble of the sort to be found in all too many modern books on the subject of meditation. But they are very well worth the time and effort for the sincere seeker of God and His truth. A very old Christian monastic tradition with ancient roots, just waiting to be discovered and put to use by the rest of us. Highly reccomended.

4.0 von 5 Sternen It is my favorite translation. The format gets only 2 stars 17. Oktober 2014
Von Asuvas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

The actual text gets 5 stars. It is my favorite translation. The format gets only 2 stars; it is hard to read in my Kindle, as the pages are laid out like images--if you enlarge them so you can read it, the text doesnt wrap, and the lines grow longer until half the sentence is off the page.
