Jürgen Wagner

The Turtle and the Frog

Keha, the turtle, in tranquil glee
She lived a life of serenity
For many years without a care
With Gnaske, a frog beyond compare

He was her dearest, closest friend
With whom sweet dreams she'd often blent
They chatted endlessly day and night
By the lake, on a rock, bathed in moonlight

One day came a rain, so fierce and wild
'I'll catch a cold, ' she said, beguiled
'I must not stay and risk my health
Although such things are rare in stealth

I'd rather be safe than sorry, you see
Let's swiftly escape, just you and me! '
Before they got soaked, wet and wetter
They both leapt into the water together

Written after a tale of native Americans

Meditationen über Gelassenheit von Jürgen Wagner

Der Zugang des Menschen zu seinem Wesen im Anschluss an Martin Heidegger und Meister Eckhart

Meister Eckhart und Martin Heidegger vereinigen auf ihre Weise Frömmigkeit und Denken. Beide bringen ans Licht, dass es in der Gelassenheit noch um mehr geht als um eine nützliche Tugend zur Stressbewältigung. So möchte dieses Buch dazu beitragen, dass wir westliche Menschen im Bewusstsein unserer Tradition u n s e r e n Weg zur Gelassenheit finden und gehen können. Die Begegnung mit anderen Wegen schließt dies nicht aus, sondern ein.
