Jürgen Wagner

The modest Rabbi

The Rabbi lay, so gravely ill
His students gathered close and still
So much they owed to him, oh they knew
And one by one, their praise they strew

'Like Abraham, your faith 's so strong! '
'Like Job you've faced fate's cruel song! '
'Like Moses trust in God you've shown! '
'A modern Solomon on his divine throne! '

The Rabbi's health, still grim and dire
His heart weighed down by unseen mire
'You're praised by all, and rightly so' -
His wife wished her compassion to show

But yet he felt a subtle slight
Reflected in his weary sight
No mention made, no words in tone
Of how humble he'd always shown

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.
