I was in Zurich in a … er … esoteric shop. Just a wild mix of various books and other things, most of them “pretty strange”, hahaha, although “serious literature” is available there. In the past I was getting there already several times in and out – without buying something. Somehow, I think to myself at the one or other book or article: ” Oh, how pretty!” or “Interesting!”, but immediatly too: “Do I really need that to be happy? The power comes from myself, not from the book, movie, incense holder, figure, etc. – and certainly not from this or that bottle, which is supposedly “charged” with “angel energy”. Angel energies, tree energies, high-master-energies, “blah-blah-energies”, “what-knows-god-energies”, hahaha, pressing a button to spray – madder can’t be. And all, of course, for hefty prices. Well, they also carry a shelf full of Zen literature. At least. I like to open a book random somewhere in the middle. Sometimes then they talk to me. Or not.
Like this green one below, for example:
Book title: “The Earth speaks: I’m with You!” I had not touched it. Just did not interested me. But I had to laugh out loud about the title. But worse was yet to come:
“Pressed Buddha” (- my description, Buddha picture on the white bottle) – for spraying directly! “Soulgate Essences” are the bottles called, for “only” 50 francs, refill 35.-
Well: own fault that I have visited the store again. The stand with reduced books before the entrance should have warned me:
Book title: “Strengthening of the Ego – The second Birth of the Self-Realization”. By god: Strengthening of the Ego! At that be born again – so to say the (book-) hell of every Buddhist…
When I left the store almost: A little girl at the postcard stand, that was holding a whole bunch of postcards in his little hands, with a photo of two fishes. I had a little chat with her. Then I bent down to her and have said goodbye. That was the best of everything. And priceless, respectively completely free.
