Let your mind wander

the time has Finally come, in the Wanderer opportunity has a to Free. The uniform Walk in the fresh air of a mental Detox is the same: After a few steps, the first Concerns of everyday life brings with it fall away. As the tail end of a view over meadows and forests can forget the Stress, the singing of the birds makes the nagging small ghosts out of the office silent. After a day of Hiking, you will return exhausted, but home: relaxed problems, even the most persistent, were dissolved in the truest sense of the word continuously.

sources from the East and the West

of Course, there is no need for books, to confirm to us that the purpose of freed free Leisure of wandering the body and mind from the corset of everyday life. It can, however, learn rewarding to be what great philosophers on a very practical, seemingly banal things to keep in mind. Numerous voices can be Albert Clit now turn to the word in the "philosophical Support" as the subtitle of his book, "The happiness of Hiking" means.

The philosophy of coach, the first was a media lawyer and then a film producer in Berlin, is not Eurocentric. On the contrary, Numerous sources he cites, go back to old Japanese or Chinese wisdom. In the Hiking, he recognizes, an ancient human need, which is independent of time and place.

"If we have us excited about something, we can, by our peace of mind to Go back," says about the Vietnamese monk Thich Nhat Hanh. Also the Danish philosopher Sören Kierkegaard knew of "no thought that would be so hard, that you when you Go loswürde". His main ideas has run the passionate walkers "attached". A step further, Friedrich Nietzsche, who dared no idea that was him in the Sitting went. And Michel de Montaigne feared in this attitude, his mental flexibility: "My thoughts sleep if I sit; my spirit is not stirred when my legs move it."

is Not only apolitical, but also ahistorical

Martin Heidegger finally sided with some of his works with titles such as "milestones" or "on the way to language". That is Hiking, but no guarantee for a moral integrity of life, shows the thinker from Todtnauberg, the left almost daily hikes in the black forest. The "wood way", on which he was because of his uncanny closeness to the Nazis politically, it is not discussed Albert Clit, unfortunately.

"From the happiness of wandering" argued not only apolitical, but also ahistorical. This reduces the gain of knowledge, especially an anthropological perspective, the company suggests a political Dimension to it. The Go in the wild don't like to ensure that we lose contact with the ground, but we must also be aware of the dangers that philosophy stuck in a blood-and-soil (so national socialist have ideologists of the Jewish life denounced way as airy, not Region-bound world of law – in contrast to the Aryan, which was in the German land grounded).

Like a beautiful dream

apart from this naive point of view on the history of Western philosophy and Eastern wisdom, we encounter again and again - and views that make the heart of the wanderer beat. Of Goethe's Motto – "My life is to be a wandering" – on the basis, analyzed the clitoris, for example, the pilgrimage, at the Hiking-Walk means.

Who is on the go, comes sweat – and it cleans itself continuously. The outer movement corresponds to an inner one. "The spirit seems to do when Hiking a similar work as in Dreams during sleep: So disjointed, erratic, and confused the dream-work often appears – to be processed, grants and assigns," writes Albert Clit. Walks are similar to Dreams: they bring the day-to-day impressions, agitated soul life back in order.

We live in a time in which the Hiking is experiencing a Renaissance, especially among young people.

in the literature, who the author cites almost manic, is for the readers advantage and a disadvantage at the same time. Though the juxtaposition of texts from past centuries and distant parts of the world at first glance disturbing, partly far-fetched, so this collection represents a veritable treasure trove – not to be estimated all the more as the author's own thoughts arises.

We live in a time, in the walking and Hiking is experiencing a Renaissance, especially among young people. It was vilified a few decades ago as arrears of leisure activity (comparable with the evening Jassen at the family table), as it is today in the Trend. So much So that – as in the case of the "Forest treatments" – an esoteric connotation is established.

Even if you can't recommend this book without reservation, so texts surprising restores it is still based on the original cross-references and Connections. Therefore, this way is worth it – how many other routes that you know to appreciate only in retrospect properly.
