Jürgen Wagner

Meeting animals


Abandon the prejudice, that you are a high being
And they are 'only animals' - they are our ancestors

Trust in the possibility of understanding and encountering them
They are animals as we are with conscience and feeling and great abilities

Consider, that they are very clear
In an instant they know - sometimes more than we know - and decide

Accept their reaction
And be patient

Don't expect human forms of approach and touch
There are many ways to meet and understand each other

Don't face them with fear - they fear us too
Fear hinders encounter

Meet them with an open heart and without expectations
Be a friend

Don't pity them - even if you see them in the zoo - have compassion
They are great beings and you can see, if they are happy or not

Book by Jürgen Wagner:


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.
