Jürgen Wagner

The biggest treasure one can find



What is the biggest treasure, you can find?
A young man left all things behind
He travelled north and searched for gold
He travelled west and people told:

Help us to work and shut your mouth!
He turned away and rode to south
He reached a village with old men
sitting comfortably - and again

Very frustrated he went away
To the east he took his way
In a small hut he felt harmony
A wise man lived there peacefully

He stayed with him throughout three years
One day, he was verging on tears
‘I must go home! ' he told him honestly
‘I want to ask you, answer truly:

What is the biggest treasure one can find? '
He said: ‘Desire nothing in your mind! '
He rode back home and told his wife:
'No greed for gold and no more strife'

I'll live with you in modesty
In work and peace and sympathy
Let us together find the way
And spread the treasure anyway!'

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.
