The Buddhist Path


To get out of one’s hamster wheel
and release one’s fixations
is the way of he Buddha

To avoid extremes
and to keep the middle way
is the line of the Buddha

To sit upright
and be silent like a quiet, clear lake
is the spirit of the Buddha

To detach from the outer world
and free oneself from wanting and desiring
is the peace of the Buddha

To bring one's light into the world
out of inner freedom
is the work of a Buddha

To be there for the welfare of all beings,
mindful and compassionate,
is the destination of an awakened one

Book by Jürgen Wagner:

cover

Spiegelungen des Daseins: HImmel und Erde: Hommage an das Leben von Jürgen Wagner



Die Gedichte aus den Jahren 2013-16 erzählen von der ‚Hochzeit‘ von Himmel und Erde. Ob in der kraftgebenden Schärfe des Rettichs oder in der Vitalität der Jahrtausende schon lebenden Eibe, ob in der Weisheit alter Geschichten oder im Wunder der Liebe, ob in spirituellen Erfahrungen oder in den Weiten des Alls: überall begegnen sich Licht und Dunkel, oben und unten. Unsere gewohnte Alltagswelt bekommt etwas von ihrem wahren Glanz wieder, wenn wir uns ein Stück dafür öffnen.
