BELOVED OSHO,

OF THE BESTOWING VIRTUE PART 2

HERE ZARATHUSTRA FELL SILENT A WHILE AND REGARDED HIS DISCIPLES LOVINGLY.

THEN HE WENT ON SPEAKING THUS, AND HIS VOICE WAS DIFFERENT:

STAY LOYAL TO THE EARTH, MY BROTHERS, WITH THE POWER OF YOUR VIRTUE! MAY

YOUR BESTOWING LOVE AND YOUR KNOWLEDGE SERVE TOWARDS THE MEANING OF THE

EARTH! THUS I BEG AND ENTREAT YOU....

A HUNDRED TIMES HAS SPIRIT AS WELL AS VIRTUE EXPERIMENTED AND GONE ASTRAY.

YES, MAN WAS AN EXPERIMENT. ALAS, MUCH IGNORANCE AND ERROR HAS BECOME

BODY IN US! NOT ONLY THE REASON OF MILLENNIA – THE MADNESS OF MILLENNIA TOO

BREAKS OUT IN US. IT IS DANGEROUS TO BE AN HEIR.

WE ARE STILL FIGHTING STEP BY STEP WITH THE GIANT CHANCE, AND HITHERTO THE

SENSELESS, THE MEANINGLESS, HAS STILL RULED OVER MANKIND.

MAY YOUR SPIRIT AND YOUR VIRTUE SERVE THE MEANING OF THE EARTH, MY

BROTHERS: AND MAY THE VALUE OF ALL THINGS BE FIXED ANEW BY YOU. TO THAT END

YOU SHOULD BE FIGHTERS! TO THAT END YOU SHOULD BE CREATORS!

THE BODY PURIFIES ITSELF THROUGH KNOWLEDGE; EXPERIMENTING WITH KNOWLEDGE

IT ELEVATES ITSELF....

PHYSICIAN, HEAL YOURSELF: THUS YOU WILL HEAL YOUR PATIENT TOO. LET HIS BEST

HEALING-AID BE TO SEE WITH HIS OWN EYES HIM WHO MAKES HIMSELF WELL.

THERE ARE A THOUSAND PATHS THAT HAVE NEVER YET BEEN TRODDEN, A THOUSAND

FORMS OF HEALTH AND HIDDEN ISLANDS OF LIFE. MAN AND MAN’S EARTH ARE STILL

UNEXHAUSTED AND UNDISCOVERED.

WATCH AND LISTEN, YOU SOLITARIES! FROM THE FUTURE COME WINDS WITH A STEALTHY

FLAPPING OF WINGS; AND GOOD TIDINGS GO OUT TO DELICATE EARS.

YOU SOLITARIES OF TODAY, YOU WHO HAVE SECEDED FROM SOCIETY, YOU SHALL ONE

DAY BE A PEOPLE: FROM YOU, WHO HAVE CHOSEN OUT YOURSELVES, SHALL A CHOSEN

PEOPLE SPRING – AND FROM THIS CHOSEN PEOPLE, THE SUPERMAN.

TRULY, THE EARTH SHALL YET BECOME A HOUSE OF HEALING! AND ALREADY A NEW

ODOUR FLOATS ABOUT IT, AN ODOUR THAT BRINGS HEALTH – AND A NEW HOPE!

... THUS SPAKE ZARATHUSTRA.

Man is an experiment – an experiment of existence to reach to the heights of consciousness and to

reach to the depths of the very sources of life. Man should be understood only in this way. You are

not born complete. All other animals are born complete; a dog is born a dog and will die a dog. Man

can be born a man and can die as a Gautam Buddha. Between birth and death no other animal

evolves, except man.

Once this is recognized in your heart – that you are an experiment of existence – you bestow upon

yourself the greatest dignity possible. Then you cannot go on living in a mechanical, robot-like

fashion. You have to move – move towards the stars. You have to progress, and your progress

knows no limits.

You are a pilgrimage without any goal; a pilgrimage from eternity to eternity. Because your reality is

not just on the outside – the outside is very superficial – your authentic evolution is going to be inner.

Your journey is inwards. Hence, your being an experiment finally turns into being an experience. We

experiment with things which are outside us. Science is experimental. We experience things which

are inside our being. Religion is experiential. Man has to do both. He has to be an experiment

in the hands of existence, and he has also to become an experience in his own right, in his own

subjectivity.

These words of Zarathustra are too important to be forgotten. Each single word has to become a

vibration within you; not just a memory, but a living opening towards vaster fields, towards greater

skies.

Zarathustra is not a priest, he is a scientist of the soul. His religion does not consist in worshiping, his

religion consists in transformation – the symbol of his religion is fire. The symbol of fire is significant,

it is the only thing that defies gravitation. It does not go low-wards; it always goes upwards.

But the same fallacy has happened to those who think as followers of Zarathustra. Rather than

becoming a flame, moving upwards into the higher realms of consciousness, they have become

worshipers of fire. Worship is a very cunning device; it leads people astray.

If a scientist starts worshiping his instruments, do you think there will be any progress? If a painter

starts worshiping paints and canvasses, do you think there is going to be any creativity? A musician

worshiping the instruments of music will not be able to bring great music to the world.

But this has happened as far as religion is concerned. People are worshiping, and they think worship

is religion. Worship is not religion. You have gone astray, clinging to the symbols still in the temples

of Zarathustra. The fire has been kept alive for twenty-five centuries but nobody becomes a fire

himself, so that all that is rubbish in you can be burned and only the gold, pure gold, can be saved.

Zarathustra was talking about the highest value, of love. Love to him is synonymous with God, but

not in the same way as it is with Jesus. With Jesus God comes first, love comes second. Jesus

says, ”God is love.” It indicates that love is one of the attributes of God, but he may have many other

attributes. God is not only love, just love; he is many more things.

With Zarathustra love comes first; love is God because love is the highest value. And just to change

those words makes such a tremendous difference that it looks unbelievable. If love is God, then

God becomes an attribute of love – and what is God except creativity? Love being creative is all that

religion is about.

He has defined the highest value in an absolutely unique way. First, that it is not common – so

whatever you think about love cannot be the love Zarathustra is talking about. Your love is very

common. Your love is only a name; behind it is nothing but biological lust. Your love is not a

value, but a degradation, a bondage – not a freedom. It brings misery and anguish in your life, not

blissfulness, not silence, not serenity, not godliness. Unless love brings these qualities it remains

common. According to Zarathustra the first important thing about the highest value is, it has to be

unique, very rare.

Secondly, it has to be useless. To understand the second point is a little bit difficult, because we

have all been taught in the philosophies of utility. Anything that is useless, how can it be the highest

value? It cannot even be called a value.

But Zarathustra’s meaning is clear. He is saying: Love cannot be a means to another end. You

cannot use it. You can live it, you can be it, but you cannot use it for any purpose, for any goal, for

any end; you cannot reduce it into a means. That’s what he means when he says the highest value

is the end of all other values, but itself is useless – because there is nothing higher than this to which

it can become a means. It is an end unto itself.

And thirdly, that it does not need any outside support to make it valuable; it shines from its own inner

center. It is luminous. It bestows beauty upon itself. It is absolutely independent.

After talking about the highest value, HERE ZARATHUSTRA FELL SILENT A WHILE AND

REGARDED HIS DISCIPLES LOVINGLY. Whenever something profound is uttered it has to be

followed, of necessity, by silence. That silence gives it more depth, more meaning, more profundity.

HERE ZARATHUSTRA FELL SILENT A WHILE. Masters are not orators. They are not practicing a

particular kind of art of speaking, they are trying to transfer their experience to their disciples. Hence

they use words and they also use wordless silences. More often their truth has to be found in the

gaps, when they fall silent.

When you have heard a profound truth and the master becomes silent, suddenly words disappear

and the presence of the master fills your heart. Something transpires in those silent moments, which

nobody has ever been able to say, and nobody will ever be able to say. That transfer is possible only

when the master is silent and the disciples are silent. Where two silences meet you experience the

highest value; you experience love.

HERE ZARATHUSTRA FELL SILENT A WHILE AND REGARDED HIS DISCIPLES LOVINGLY. In

that silence there was nothing but a love radiating from the master and penetrating the hearts of the

disciples. Nothing was said but everything was understood. And he was happy, and looked at the

disciples lovingly, because the silence has not been empty; the disciples have been able to receive

it, to become pregnant with it.

THEN HE WENT ON SPEAKING THUS, AND HIS VOICE WAS DIFFERENT. Just a moment before

he fell silent he was speaking about the highest value and its qualities. It was more a philosophical

statement; more verbal, more in the words of the words – but now his voice is different. He is not

speaking to an anonymous crowd, he is speaking to those who love him; he is speaking to those

who can fall silent with him, who can be in a state of meditation with him.

Now his words and his voice have a difference – they are not dry, they have become more juicy;

they are not philosophical, they have become more poetic. He does not have to give any argument

to these disciples; he has given them the experience itself. Now he can talk to them without

argumentation, without logic. Now he has the freedom even to be irrational – because all that is

great in life is irrational. And he is immensely pleased.

Just as a disciple needs a master, perhaps the master needs the disciple even more. The disciple is

groping in darkness, he is empty, he is not burdened. The master is overflowing; he wants to share,

and he is in a hurry to find those who are capable of being receptive, open – who are capable of

communion.

STAY LOYAL TO THE EARTH. That is one of the fundamentals of Zarathustra, he is against all

religions. They say, ”Remain loyal to heaven; remain loyal to God, who is far away beyond the

clouds.” Zarathustra’s insistence is: STAY LOYAL TO THE EARTH, MY BROTHERS, WITH THE

POWER OF YOUR VIRTUE! – with your love. Be loving to the earth. Sow the seeds of love on the

earth.

The question is not for you to enter into some paradise in the skies. On the contrary, the question

is how to transform this earth into paradise. It has all the potential. Just an awakening about the

potential of the earth, about the potential of the people on the earth, and there will be no talk about

any heaven or any paradise or any God. Man can become complete, fulfilled unto himself.

This earth is our home, it is our mother; that is why he calls his disciples ”my brothers”. Neither

Krishna, nor Mohammed, nor Moses, nor Buddha has ever called their disciples ”my brothers”.

They were far away, holy men, and you were far below, earthly, worldly. What relationship can exist

between you and them? Certainly it cannot be the relationship of brothers.

MAY YOUR BESTOWING LOVE AND YOUR KNOWLEDGE SERVE TOWARDS THE MEANING

OF THE EARTH! The earth is searching through you for its own meaning. You are the highest

evolved part of the earth. Have you ever considered? – your body is earth, your brain is earth,

your heart is earth. You are the highest flowering, a great metamorphosis. There seems to be no

connection between the earth and your eyes, but your eyes are nothing but the eyes of the earth. It

is an effort of the earth to see. Your ears are an effort of the earth to hear the music.

MAY YOUR BESTOWING LOVE AND YOUR KNOWLEDGE SERVE TOWARDS THE MEANING

OF THE EARTH! THUS I BEG AND ENTREAT YOU....

A HUNDRED TIMES HAS SPIRIT AS WELL AS VIRTUE EXPERIMENTED AND GONE ASTRAY.

YES, MAN WAS AN EXPERIMENT. ALAS, MUCH IGNORANCE AND ERROR HAS BECOME

BODY IN US!

This single sentence, YES, MAN WAS AN EXPERIMENT, makes Zarathustra one of the greatest

scientists of your inner being. Man is not a complete being; man is a becoming. You see the trees –

they are beings, they are following a fixed program. They will live so long, each spring they will yield

flowers and fruits – everything is fixed about them. They only grow old, they never grow up.

All animals are the same; they grow old. It is only in man that there is a distinction: he can grow old

just like animals and trees, or he can grow up – in consciousness, in love, in gratitude, and can bring

to the earth the meaning it has been searching for... searching for the meaning it has reached up to

man.

But A HUNDRED TIMES HAS SPIRIT AS WELL AS VIRTUE EXPERIMENTED AND GONE

ASTRAY. And the reason why the experiments have failed, is that nobody recognized that we are

experiments of the earth. All the religions started renouncing the earth, and that is where they went

wrong. They were sons and daughters of the earth and they started renouncing the earth; and it

was the earth who had brought them to this level of life and consciousness. Zarathustra would like

you to remain loyal to the earth so that the experiment cannot go astray.

NOT ONLY THE REASON OF MILLENNIA – THE MADNESS OF MILLENNIA TOO BREAKS OUT

IN US. It is not only the reason of the millions of years that have passed that we get in heritage. We

also get in heritage the MADNESS OF MILLENNIA.

All that has gone wrong in millions of years also comes to us as our heritage. And one has to be

very alert to sort out what is wrong in the traditions, in the orthodoxies, in the religions of the past,

and find the point from where other experiments have gone astray. You cannot blindly follow the

paths, otherwise you will also go wrong.

IT IS DANGEROUS TO BE AN HEIR, because in heritage you get everything: the rationality and

the madness too, the successes and the failures too. And the difficulty is: successes are very few

and failures are many. Sanity is very rare and madness is very common. Almost ninety-nine percent

of your heritage is insane. It is because of that heritage that humanity remains miserable, cannot

get free from the ancient bondage – because it thinks that it is our heritage, slavery is our heritage.

Chains become ornaments and imprisonments become our homes.

To be religious one needs to be a rebel.

To be religious one needs fire to burn all that is false, to burn all that is superfluous, to burn all that

is not essential and to save only that which is very small, from where you can move in the right

direction.

WE ARE STILL FIGHTING STEP BY STEP WITH

THE GIANT CHANCE AND HITHERTO THE SENSELESS, THE MEANINGLESS, HAS STILL

RULED OVER MANKIND. Our greatest problem is why the experiment has not succeeded, why

man has always proved a failure, why man has not proved himself to be the salt of the earth, the

meaning and the significance.

Just a little intelligence and it is not difficult to find. HITHERTO THE SENSELESS AND

MEANINGLESS HAS STILL RULED OVER MANKIND. Just watch your own life and watch the

life of the people around you. How much is senseless? How much is meaningless? And that

senselessness and meaninglessness predominates.

In one of the Indian religions, Jainism, there are two sects. Their differences are so senseless and

meaningless – but they go on fighting for them. As an example, I will tell you: One of their differences

is that their twenty-fourth tirthankara, twenty-fourth messiah, Mahavira, lived naked. The difference

is that one sect said, ”It is a historical fact that Mahavira lived actually naked.” And the other sect

says, ”He only appeared naked because he has got clothes from God which are transparent. So he

was not naked, he only appeared naked.”

Now, as far as anybody is concerned he was naked, whether he was actually naked or was using

some absolutely transparent clothes... what difference does it make? But that created a rift. And

both the religions, for twenty-five centuries, have been fighting with each other. Do you call it

reasonable, sensible, or just stupid?

Another problem is whether Mahavira meditated with closed eyes or open eyes. An intelligent man

should be concerned, what his meditation was. What does it matter whether he meditated with open

eyes or with closed eyes? What matters is meditation.

I was talking to a Jaina monk and I said, ”You both are wrong.”

He said, ”What do you mean?”

I said, ”I’m going to create a third sect. He meditated with blinking eyes,” which seems to be more

natural. So, for a second open, for a second closed.

But they cannot worship the same statue of Mahavira. If the eyes are closed then one sect can

worship it; the other sect can worship it only by putting false eyes over the statue’s eyes. Then it is

good, everything is good. But they will worship only with the open eyes.

And I told the Jaina monk, ”I know Mahavira perfectly well; he blinked, just as you blink. So you

both are right. For a second he was with closed eyes, for a second he was with open eyes. He

was not blind. Don’t force the idea that he kept his eyes closed forever. And don’t force the contrary

idea, that he kept his eyes open forever, because that is not in the nature of things.” The eyelids are

not uselessly given to you. Your eyes are the most delicate part of your body, they need constant

cleaning. Not even a small piece of dust should settle on them; it can be destructive. Your eyelids

are doing exactly what the wipers on the windshield of a car do, just cleaning.

But whatsoever the case, the fight is so stupid. People get engaged in these fights and forget the

essential. And it is not only one religion, the same is the case with all the religions of the world.

Their conflicts are so trivial.

For example, Mohammedans have two sects: Sia and Sunni. And the difference.... They both

believe in the prophet Mohammed; they both believe in the holy KORAN; they both believe in the

God preached by the holy KORAN, they both believe in the kaaba; they both believe that every

Mohammedan, at least once in his life, must go for a pilgrimage to the kaaba; so on all essential

things that make a Mohammedan, they are in agreement. But they are continually killing each other.

Mohammed had a son and Mohammed had a daughter, and naturally, a son-in-law. And that is the

problem: who succeeded Mohammed, the son or the son-in-law? But what does it matter? You are

neither the son nor are you the son-in-law. Whoever succeeded him, it is the same religion. You

are in absolute agreement about the religion – now who succeeded Mohammed, A, B, C, does not

matter, should not matter.

But for fourteen centuries Sias and Sunnis have been killing each other. And they become so much

involved in these trivial matters they forget all about religion, they forget all about evolution, they

forget all about inner growth – there is no time! First they have to settle these stupid things, which

cannot be settled, there is no way to settle them now.

MAY YOUR SPIRIT AND YOUR VIRTUE SERVE THE MEANING OF THE EARTH, MY

BROTHERS: AND MAY THE VALUE OF ALL THINGS BE FIXED ANEW BY YOU. The value has

to be fixed anew constantly, as times change. Life is a flux; just like a river it goes on moving. It

remains fresh and clean only through movement. Stop the movement of the river and it becomes

dirty. The movement is the cleansing process. This is another point where man’s experiments have

gone astray; they become fixed.

What Confucius said cannot be changed. Everything has changed. But the values given by

Confucius remain the same – that creates a dichotomy in man’s mind. If he follows life, which is

natural, then he goes against the fixed value. If he follows the fixed value, he goes against life. You

have created a dilemma for every man. The fixations of values have destroyed humanity and the

whole experiment of evolution.

One should be alert each moment to die to the past and be born anew, so one remains, fresh, clean,

flowing; otherwise – all the religions have stopped at some point; life has gone far away from them,

but they are not willing to change.

When Galileo discovered that the earth goes around the sun, not vice versa, it was against THE

BIBLE. THE BIBLE simply reports the ordinary illusion we see because we are standing on the

earth, and the earth is so vast we cannot see its movement. Everything is moving together. But we

can see the sun rising in the morning, setting in the evening, so it is the common understanding that

the sun goes around the earth. That is reported in THE BIBLE. It is a common man’s, a layman’s

view.

Galileo was a scientist. With instruments, with higher mathematics he figured out that humanity has

lived with a wrong concept: the sun does not go around the earth – the earth goes around the sun.

Immediately he was called into the court of the pope. He was old, seventy-five or eighty years old,

one of the greatest scientists the world has known. And the pope ordered him: ”You change your

book, because THE BIBLE is written by God himself, and you cannot be wiser than God. Write in

your book that the sun goes around the earth; otherwise, all your books will be burnt and you will be

burnt alive. You are a heretic. You are creating a religious idea.”

He said, ”Religion has nothing to do with it. Whether the sun goes around or the earth goes around,

what concern is it of religion? You can still meditate the same; you can still meditate, pray, dance,

sing – whatever your religion teaches you. My statement will not make any difference to you.”

But the pope said, ”My order is final. You are spreading fallacies.” Galileo I love, because of his

sense of humor. He said, ”Then it is perfectly good. I will change it and in the footnotes I will write,

‘Although I have changed the statement according to the order of the pope, neither the earth reads

my book, nor the sun reads my book.’ And I’m sorry: the earth will still go around the sun. There will

be no change. My book cannot make any change.”

These are the people who have stopped. Even today, Christianity preaches that the earth is flat.

Now we have airplanes and rockets moving around the earth, and it is not an assumption, but an

actual experience that it is a globe, not flat. You can start a journey from here, and if you go directly

and go on going, finally you will come to the same point again. If the earth was flat, somewhere you

would fall off the earth into the empty sky, but because the earth is round you cannot fall; you will

come back full circle.

But Christianity is not ready to change its concepts. And all the religions have similar concepts; they

have stopped thousands of years ago. Zarathustra is saying: ”Renew your values always. To that

end you should be fighters!” And if a fight is needed against the fixed values, be fighters. ”To that end

you should be creators and create new values,” – values which are contemporary, values which are

supported by the latest discoveries, the latest experiments in science, in psychology, in every other

field. Only then man can go on without being stuck somewhere; his evolution can be unhindered.

THE BODY PURIFIES ITSELF THROUGH KNOWLEDGE; EXPERIMENTING WITH KNOWLEDGE

IT ELEVATES ITSELF....

PHYSICIAN, HEAL YOURSELF: THUS YOU WILL HEAL YOUR PATIENT TOO. LET HIS BEST

HEALING-AID BE TO SEE WITH HIS OWN EYES HIM WHO MAKES HIMSELF WELL.

This is great advice to those who want human consciousness to reach to its highest possible peaks.

The first thing is: ”Physician heal thyself.” You should be completely free of all superstitions, all

senseless dead pasts, you should be new every moment. This will be your health. And this will help

people: seeing you, seeing your awareness, seeing your love, seeing your compassion, seeing your

blissfulness will be the proof that others are wrong and they have to change. It is not a question

of arguing; it is a question of presenting your life in the new light, so those who are standing in

darkness can see that they are standing in darkness, and THAT IS THE CAUSE OF THEIR MISERY

AND THEIR SICKNESS.

THERE ARE A THOUSAND PATHS THAT HAVE NEVER YET BEEN TRODDEN, A THOUSAND

FORMS OF HEALTH AND HIDDEN ISLANDS OF LIFE. This is where anybody who has intelligence

will fall in love with Zarathustra. He is so different from other teachers of religion.

Mahavira says, ”I have said the last word; now there is no more to be discovered. All that has

to be discovered about human consciousness I have discovered. There will not be a twenty-

fifth TIRTHANKARA.” Gautam Buddha says the same thing. Mohammed says, ”There have been

prophets before me, but after me there will be no prophets, because I have brought all knowledge;

now nothing is any longer hidden.”

Zarathustra has a very different approach, very humble. THERE ARE A THOUSAND PATHS

THAT HAVE NEVER YET BEEN TRODDEN, A THOUSAND FORMS OF HEALTH AND

HIDDEN ISLANDS OF LIFE. MAN AND MAN’S EARTH ARE STILL UNEXHAUSTED AND

UNDISCOVERED.

He does not want to be the last word. On the contrary he wants to be the beginning, and leaves

everything open. ”Go on changing as you come into new spaces. You don’t have to be in agreement

with me, because there are thousands of paths which are untrodden, and there are thousands of

islands on the earth and in the inner being of man which are not yet discovered. So don’t remain

clinging to me – move on!”

He is saying, ”I teach you movement. I don’t give you a fixed doctrine; I only give you an impetus, an

incentive, a challenge.” A real master is always a challenge: challenge for new discoveries, challenge

for new unknown spaces, challenge for faraway stars. He simply gives encouragement. He helps

you to be on the wing, and leaves the whole sky open for you.

WATCH AND LISTEN, YOU SOLITARIES! FROM THE FUTURE COME WINDS WITH A STEALTHY

FLAPPING OF WINGS; AND GOOD TIDINGS GO OUT TO DELICATE EARS.

YOU SOLITARIES OF TODAY, YOU WHO HAVE SECEDED FROM SOCIETY.... Be careful about

these words: YOU SOLITARIES OF TODAY, YOU WHO HAVE SECEDED FROM SOCIETY, YOU

SHALL ONE DAY BE A PEOPLE: FROM YOU, WHO HAVE CHOSEN OUT YOURSELVES, SHALL

A CHOSEN PEOPLE SPRING – AND FROM THIS CHOSEN PEOPLE, THE SUPERMAN.

It is unfortunate that it has not happened yet. Still.... You are solitaries today; my name for solitaries

is sannyasins. Still you are few. Twenty-five centuries have past, but the words of Zarathustra sound

as if they are being spoken today.

YOU SOLITARIES OF TODAY, YOU WHO HAVE SECEDED FROM SOCIETY, YOU SHALL ONE

DAY BE A PEOPLE. Twenty-five centuries ago he was hoping – and it is still a hope. I am still hoping

that you will not remain few. I have even started calling you ”my people”.

FROM YOU, WHO HAVE CHOSEN OUT YOURSELVES, SHALL A CHOSEN PEOPLE SPRING –

AND FROM THIS CHOSEN PEOPLE, THE SUPERMAN.

TRULY, THE EARTH SHALL YET BECOME A HOUSE OF HEALING! AND ALREADY A NEW

ODOUR FLOATS ABOUT IT, AN ODOUR THAT BRINGS HEALTH – AND A NEW HOPE! I can

simply repeat his words, because they are as true today as they were twenty-five centuries ago. It

is very saddening; it is unfortunate, but perhaps he came too early, ahead of his time. Every genius

comes early, but Zarathustra seems to have come too early.

Perhaps now is the time that we can make this earth a temple of healing – not only of the body but

of the soul too, a holy place where everybody is whole, not split, not schizophrenic.

AND ALREADY A NEW ODOUR FLOATS ABOUT IT. It is still very small, but it is there in the hearts

of many intelligent and courageous people. A longing for a greater life, for a higher life, for a better

life has already arisen. Perhaps the spring is very close. Perhaps we have come at the right time.

AN ODOUR THAT BRINGS HEALTH – AND A NEW HOPE! We want this hope to become a reality;

it has remained a hope too long. It is time that the dream is realized and if we cannot realize this

dream, then there is no future for humanity.

This gives me great hope, because the mad crowd has come close to a global suicide. And now

there will be only two alternatives: either transform yourself into a new man, the superman, or get

ready to disappear from this earth. And I don’t think that man wants to die. I don’t think that trees

want to die or the birds or the animals. I don’t think that life wants to commit suicide.

Hence, most probably, it will choose to transform itself and give birth to the superman, and drop

this whole arrangement that politicians around the world are making ready for you, for committing

suicide. Now the forces of life and the forces of death are confronting each other. The forces of life

are fragile, just like an odor in the air. And the forces of death are very strong.

Still, death cannot win over life. Hate cannot win over love. The ugly cannot win over the beautiful.

It was a hope for him; to me it is coming more and more close to being a reality. You may be the

fortunate ones to see the dream transformed into a fact. You may be the witness to the birth of the

superman.

BUT HE WHO IS THE WISEST AMONG YOU, HE ALSO IS ONLY A DISCORD AND HYBRID OF PLANT AND OF GHOST. BUT DO I BID YOU BECOME GHOSTS OR PLANTS? at energyenhancement.org

  • Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 4: Prologue 4
    Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 4: Prologue 4, WHAT IS THE GREATEST THING YOU CAN EXPERIENCE? IT IS THE HOUR OF THE GREAT CONTEMPT. THE HOUR IN WHICH EVEN YOUR HAPPINESS GROWS LOATHSOME TO YOU, AND YOUR REASON AND YOUR VIRTUE ALSO. THE HOUR WHEN YOU SAY: ‘WHAT GOOD IS MY HAPPINESS? IT IS POVERTY AND DIRT AND A MISERABLE EASE. BUT MY HAPPINESS SHOULD JUSTIFY EXISTENCE ITSELF!’ THE HOUR WHEN YOU SAY: ‘WHAT GOOD IS MY REASON? DOES IT LONG FOR KNOWLEDGE AS THE LION FOR ITS FOOD? IT IS POVERTY AND DIRT AND A MISERABLE EASE!’ THE HOUR WHEN YOU SAY: ‘WHAT GOOD IS MY VIRTUE? IT HAS NOT YET DRIVEN ME MAD! HOWTIRED I AM OF MY GOOD AND MY EVIL! IT IS ALL POVERTY AND DIRT AND MISERABLE EASE!.... THE HOUR WHEN YOU SAY, ‘WHAT GOOD IS MY PITY? IS NOT PITY THE CROSS UPON WHICH HE WHO LOVES MAN IS NAILED? BUT MY PITY IS NO CRUCIFIXION!’ HAVE YOU EVER SPOKEN THUS? HAVE YOU EVER CRIED THUS? AH, THAT I HAD HEARD YOU CRYING THUS! at energyenhancement.org
  • Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 5: Prologue Part 5
    Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 5: Prologue Part 5, WHEN ZARATHUSTRA HAD SPOKEN THESE WORDS HE LOOKED AGAIN AT THE PEOPLE AND FELL SILENT. THERE THEY STAND (HE SAID TO HIS HEART), THERE THEY LAUGH: THEY DO NOT UNDERSTAND ME, I AM NOT THE MOUTH FOR THESE EARS. MUST ONE FIRST SHATTER THEIR EARS TO TEACH THEM TO HEAR WITH THEIR EYES? MUST ONE RUMBLE LIKE DRUMS AND LENTEN PREACHERS? OR DO THEY BELIEVE ONLY THOSE WHO STAMMER? THEY HAVE SOMETHING OF WHICH THEY ARE PROUD. WHAT IS IT CALLED THAT MAKES THEM PROUD? THEY CALL IT CULTURE, IT DISTINGUISHES THEM FROM THE GOATHERDS. THEREFORE THEY DISLIKE HEARING THE WORD ’CONTEMPT’ SPOKEN OF THEM. SO I SHALL SPEAK TO THEIR PRIDE. SO I SHALL SPEAK TO THEM OF THE MOST CONTEMPTIBLE MAN: AND THAT IS THE ULTIMATE MAN. AND THUS SPOKE ZARATHUSTRA TO THE PEOPLE: IT IS TIME FOR MAN TO FIX HIS GOAL. IT IS TIME FOR MAN TO PLANT THE SEED OF HIS HIGHEST HOPE at energyenhancement.org

  • Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 6: Prologue Part 6
    Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 6: Prologue Part 6, FOLLOWING HIS SPEECH ABOUT THE ULTIMATE MAN, ZARATHUSTRA REALIZES THAT THE PEOPLE HAVE MISUNDERSTOOD HIM, FOR THEY NOW CRY OUT TO HIM FOR THE ULTIMATE MAN, TELLING HIM HE CAN HAVE THE SUPERMAN. WHILE HE PONDERS ON THIS, THE TIGHT-ROPE WALKER BEGINS HIS ACT – WALKING ACROSS A ROPE SUSPENDED HIGH ABOVE THE PEOPLE IN THE MARKET SQUARE, BETWEEN TWO TOWERS. WHEN HE REACHES THE MID-POINT, SUDDENLY A FIGURE DRESSED AS A BUFFOON APPEARS FROM ONE OF THE TOWERS, AND PROCEEDS TO FOLLOW THE TIGHT-ROPE WALKER, SHOUTING OUT AND ABUSING HIM. HE MAKES TO JUMP OVER THE TIGHTROPE WALKER, WHO LOSES HIS BALANCE AND FALLS, LANDING QUITE CLOSE TO WHERE ZARATHUSTRA IS STANDING. ZARATHUSTRA STAYS WITH THE DYING MAN LONG AFTER EVENING HAS COME AND THE CROWD DISPERSED at energyenhancement.org

  • Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 7: Of the three metamorphoses
    Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 7: Of the three metamorphoses, I NAME YOU THREE METAMORPHOSES OF THE SPIRIT: HOW THE SPIRIT SHALL BECOME A CAMEL, AND THE CAMEL A LION, AND THE LION AT LAST A CHILD. THERE ARE MANY HEAVY THINGS FOR THE SPIRIT, FOR THE STRONG, WEIGHT-BEARING SPIRIT IN WHICH DWELL RESPECT AND AWE: ITS STRENGTH LONGS FOR THE HEAVY, FOR THE HEAVIEST. WHAT IS HEAVY? THUS ASKS THE WEIGHT-BEARING SPIRIT, THUS IT KNEELS DOWN LIKE THE CAMEL AND WANTS TO BE WELL LADEN. WHAT IS THE HEAVIEST THING, YOU HEROES? SO ASKS THE WEIGHT-BEARING SPIRIT, THAT I MAY TAKE IT UPON ME AND REJOICE IN MY STRENGTH. IS IT NOT THIS: TO DEBASE YOURSELF IN ORDER TO INJURE YOUR PRIDE?... OR IS IT THIS: TO DESERT OUR CAUSE WHEN IT IS CELEBRATING ITS VICTORY? TO CLIMB HIGH MOUNTAINS IN ORDER TO TEMPT THE TEMPTER?... OR IS IT THIS: TO LOVE THOSE WHO DESPISE US AND TO OFFER OUR HAND TO THE GHOST WHEN IT WANTS TO FRIGHTEN US? at energyenhancement.org

  • Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 8: Of the despisers of the body and the joys and the passions
    Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 8: Of the despisers of the body and the joys and the passions, YOU SAY ‘I’ AND YOU ARE PROUD OF THIS WORD. BUT GREATER THAN THIS – ALTHOUGH YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE IN IT – IS YOUR BODY AND ITS GREAT INTELLIGENCE, WHICH DOES NOT SAY ‘I’ BUT PERFORMS ‘I’. WHAT THE SENSE FEELS, WHAT THE SPIRIT PERCEIVES, IS NEVER AN END IN ITSELF. BUT SENSE AND SPIRIT WOULD LIKE TO PERSUADE YOU THAT THEY ARE THE END OF ALL THINGS: THEY ARE AS VAIN AS THAT. SENSE AND SPIRIT ARE INSTRUMENTS AND TOYS: BEHIND THEM STILL LIES THE SELF. THE SELF SEEKS WITH THE EYES OF THE SENSE, IT LISTENS TOO WITH THE EARS OF THE SPIRIT. THE SELF IS ALWAYS LISTENING AND SEEKING: IT COMPARES, SUBDUES, CONQUERS, DESTROYS. IT RULES AND IS ALSO THE EGO’S RULER. BEHIND YOUR THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS, MY BROTHER, STANDS A MIGHTY COMMANDER, AN UNKNOWN SAGE – HE IS CALLED SELF. HE LIVES IN YOUR BODY, HE IS YOUR BODY. THERE IS MORE REASON IN YOUR BODY THAN IN YOUR BEST WISDOM. AND WHO KNOWS FOR WHAT PURPOSE YOUR BODY REQUIRES PRECISELY YOUR BEST WISDOM?... at energyenhancement.org

  • Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 9: Of live and love and of war and warriors
    Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 9: Of live and love and of war and warriors, WHAT HAVE WE IN COMMON WITH THE ROSEBUD, WHICH TREMBLES BECAUSE A DROP OF DEW IS LYING UPON IT? IT IS TRUE: WE LOVE LIFE, NOT BECAUSE WE ARE USED TO LIVING BUT BECAUSE WE ARE USED TO LOVING. THERE IS ALWAYS A CERTAIN MADNESS IN LOVE. BUT ALSO THERE IS ALWAYS A CERTAIN METHOD IN MADNESS. AND TO ME TOO, WHO LOVE LIFE, IT SEEMS THAT BUTTERFLIES AND SOAP-BUBBLES, AND WHATEVER IS LIKE THEM AMONG MEN, KNOW MOST ABOUT HAPPINESS. TO SEE THESE LIGHT, FOOLISH, DAINTY, AFFECTING LITTLE SOULS FLUTTER ABOUT – THAT MOVES ZARATHUSTRA TO TEARS AND TO SONG. I SHOULD BELIEVE ONLY IN A GOD WHO UNDERSTOOD HOW TO DANCE. OF WAR AND WARRIORS WE DO NOT WISH TO BE SPARED BY OUR BEST ENEMIES, NOR BY THOSE WHOM WE LOVE FROM THE VERY HEART. SO LET ME TELL YOU THE TRUTH! at energyenhancement.org
  • Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 10: Of the new idol and of the flies of the marketplace
    Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 10: Of the new idol and of the flies of the marketplace, THERE ARE STILL PEOPLES AND HERDS SOMEWHERE, BUT NOT WITH US, MY BROTHERS: HERE THERE ARE STATES.... THE STATE IS THE COLDEST OF ALL COLD MONSTERS. COLDLY IT LIES, TOO; AND THIS LIE CREEPS FROM ITS MOUTH: ’I, THE STATE, AM THE PEOPLE.’ IT IS A LIE! IT WAS CREATORS WHO CREATED PEOPLES AND HUNG A FAITH AND A LOVE OVER THEM: THUS THEY SERVED LIFE. IT IS DESTROYERS WHO SET SNARES FOR MANY AND CALL IT THE STATE: THEY HANG A SWORD AND A HUNDRED DESIRES OVER THEM. WHERE A PEOPLE STILL EXISTS, THERE THE PEOPLE DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE STATE AND HATE IT AS THE EVIL EYE AND SIN AGAINST CUSTOM AND LAW.... A FREE LIFE STILL REMAINS FOR GREAT SOULS. TRULY, HE WHO POSSESSES LITTLE IS SO MUCH THE LESS POSSESSED: PRAISED BE A MODERATE POVERTY! ONLY THERE, WHERE THE STATE CEASES, DOES THE MAN WHO IS NOT SUPERFLUOUS BEGIN: DOES THE SONG OF THE NECESSARY MAN, THE UNIQUE AND IRREPLACEABLE MELODY, BEGIN at energyenhancement.org

  • Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 11: Of the friend
    Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 11: Of the friend, OUR FAITH IN OTHERS BETRAYS WHEREIN WE WOULD DEARLY LIKE TO HAVE FAITH IN OURSELVES. OUR LONGING FOR A FRIEND IS OUR BETRAYER. AND OFTEN WITH OUR LOVE WE ONLYWANT TO LEAP OVER ENVY. AND OFTEN WE ATTACK AND MAKE AN ENEMY IN ORDER TO CONCEAL THAT WE ARE VULNERABLE TO ATTACK. ‘AT LEAST BE MY ENEMY!’ – THUS SPEAKS THE TRUE REVERENCE THAT DOES NOT VENTURE TO ASK FOR FRIENDSHIP. IF YOU WANT A FRIEND, YOU MUST ALSO BE WILLING TO WAGE WAR FOR HIM: AND TO WAGE WAR, YOU MUST BE CAPABLE OF BEING AN ENEMY. YOU SHOULD HONOUR EVEN THE ENEMY IN YOUR FRIEND. CAN YOU GO NEAR TO YOUR FRIEND WITHOUT GOING OVER TO HIM? IN YOUR FRIEND YOU SHOULD POSSESS YOUR BEST ENEMY. YOUR HEART SHOULD FEEL CLOSEST TO HIM WHEN YOU OPPOSE HIM.... HE WHO MAKES NO SECRET OF HIMSELF EXCITES ANGER IN OTHERS: THAT IS HOW MUCH REASON YOU HAVE TO FEAR NAKEDNESS. IF YOU WERE GODS YOU COULD THEN BE ASHAMED OF YOUR CLOTHES! at energyenhancement.org
  • Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 12: Of the thousand and one goals
    Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 12: Of the thousand and one goals, NO PEOPLE COULD LIVE WITHOUT EVALUATING; BUT IF IT WISHES TO MAINTAIN ITSELF IT MUST NOT EVALUATE AS ITS NEIGHBOR EVALUATES. MUCH THAT SEEMED GOOD TO ONE PEOPLE SEEMED SHAME AND DISGRACE TO ANOTHER: THUS I FOUND. I FOUND MUCH THAT WAS CALLED EVIL IN ONE PLACE WAS IN ANOTHER DECKED WITH PURPLE HONOURS.... A TABLE OF VALUES HANGS OVER EVERY PEOPLE. BEHOLD, IT IS THE TABLE OF ITS OVERCOMINGS; BEHOLD, IT IS THE VOICE OF ITS WILL TO POWER. WHAT IT ACCOUNTS HARD IT CALLS PRAISEWORTHY; WHAT IT ACCOUNTS INDISPENSABLE AND HARD IT CALLS GOOD; AND THAT WHICH RELIEVES THE GREATEST NEED, THE RARE, THE HARDEST OF ALL – IT GLORIFIES AS HOLY. WHATEVER CAUSES IT TO RULE AND CONQUER AND GLITTER, TO THE DREAD AND ENVY OF ITS NEIGHBOR, THAT IT ACCOUNTS THE SUBLIMEST, THE PARAMOUNT, THE EVALUATION AND THE MEANING OF ALL THINGS.... MAN FIRST IMPLANTED VALUES INTO THINGS TO MAINTAIN HIMSELF – HE CREATED THE MEANING OF THINGS, A HUMAN MEANING! THEREFORE HE CALLS HIMSELF: ‘MAN’, THAT IS: THE EVALUATOR at energyenhancement.org

  • Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 13: Of love of one’s neighbor
    Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 13: Of love of one’s neighbor, YOU FLEE TO YOUR NEIGHBOR AWAY FROM YOURSELVES AND WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A VIRTUE OF IT: BUT I SEE THROUGH YOUR ‘SELFLESSNESS’.... DO I EXHORT YOU TO LOVE OF YOUR NEIGHBOR? I EXHORT YOU RATHER TO FLIGHT FROM YOUR NEIGHBOR AND TO LOVE OF THE MOST DISTANT! HIGHER THAN LOVE OF ONE’S NEIGHBOR STANDS LOVE OF THE MOST DISTANT MAN AND OF THE MAN OF THE FUTURE; HIGHER STILL THAN LOVE OF MAN I ACCOUNT LOVE OF CAUSES AND OF PHANTOMS. THIS PHANTOM THAT RUNS ALONG BEHIND YOU, MY BROTHER, IS FAIRER THAN YOU; WHY DO YOU NOT GIVE IT YOUR FLESH AND BONES? BUT YOU ARE AFRAID AND YOU RUN TO YOUR NEIGHBOR.... YOU INVITE IN A WITNESS WHEN YOU WANT TO SPEAK WELL OF YOURSELVES; AND WHEN YOU HAVE MISLED HIM INTO THINKING WELL OF YOU, YOU THEN THINK WELL OF YOURSELVES.... ONE MAN RUNS TO HIS NEIGHBOR BECAUSE HE IS LOOKING FOR HIMSELF, AND ANOTHER BECAUSE HE WANTS TO LOSE HIMSELF. YOUR BAD LOVE OF YOURSELVES MAKES SOLITUDE A PRISON TO YOU.... at energyenhancement.org

  • Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 14: Of the way of the creator
    Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 14: Of the way of the creator, MY BROTHER, DO YOU WANT TO GO APART AND BE ALONE? DO YOU WANT TO SEEK THE WAY TO YOURSELF? PAUSE JUST A MOMENT AND LISTEN TO ME. ‘HE WHO SEEKS MAY EASILY GET LOST HIMSELF. IT IS A CRIME TO GO APART AND BE ALONE’ – THUS SPEAKS THE HERD. THE VOICE OF THE HERD WILL STILL RING WITHIN YOU. AND WHEN YOU SAY: ‘WE HAVE NO LONGER THE SAME CONSCIENCE, YOU AND I’, IT WILL BE A LAMENT AND A GRIEF. FOR SEE, IT IS STILL THIS SAME CONSCIENCE THAT CAUSES YOUR GRIEF: AND THE LAST GLIMMER OF THIS CONSCIENCE STILL GLOWS IN YOUR AFFLICTION. BUT YOU WANT TO GO THE WAY OF YOUR AFFLICTION, WHICH IS THE WAY TO YOURSELF? IF SO, SHOW ME YOUR STRENGTH FOR IT AND YOUR RIGHT TO IT! ARE YOU A NEW STRENGTH AND A NEW RIGHT? A FIRST MOTION? A SELF-PROPELLING WHEEL? CAN YOU ALSO COMPEL STARS TO REVOLVE ABOUT YOU? ALAS, THERE IS SO MUCH LUSTING FOR EMINENCE! THERE IS SO MUCH CONVULSION OF THE AMBITIOUS!... at energyenhancement.org
  • Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 15: Of justice
    Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 15: Of justice, WHEN YOU HAVE AN ENEMY, DO NOT REQUITE HIM GOOD FOR EVIL: FOR THAT WOULD MAKE HIM ASHAMED. BUT PROVE THAT HE HAS DONE SOMETHING GOOD TO YOU. BETTER TO BE ANGRY THAN MAKE ASHAMED! AND WHEN YOU ARE CURSED, I DO NOT LIKE IT THAT YOU THEN WANT TO BLESS. RATHER CURSE BACK A LITTLE! AND SHOULD A GREAT INJUSTICE BE DONE YOU, THEN QUICKLY DO FIVE LITTLE INJUSTICES BESIDES. HE WHO BEARS INJUSTICE ALONE IS TERRIBLE TO BEHOLD. DID YOU KNOW THIS ALREADY? SHARED INJUSTICE IS HALF JUSTICE. AND HE WHO CAN BEAR IT SHOULD TAKE THE INJUSTICE UPON HIMSELF. A LITTLE REVENGE IS MORE HUMAN THAN NO REVENGE AT ALL. AND IF THE PUNISHMENT BE NOT ALSO A RIGHT AND AN HONOUR FOR THE TRANSGRESSOR, THEN I DO NOT LIKE YOUR PUNISHMENT. IT IS MORE NOBLE TO DECLARE YOURSELF WRONG THAN TO MAINTAIN YOU ARE RIGHT, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU ARE RIGHT. ONLY YOU MUST BE RICH ENOUGH FOR IT. I DO NOT LIKE YOUR COLD JUSTICE; AND FROM THE EYE OF YOUR JUDGES THERE ALWAYS GAZES ONLY THE EXECUTIONER AND HIS COLD STEEL at energyenhancement.org

  • Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 16: Of voluntary death
    Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 16: Of voluntary death, MANY DIE TOO LATE AND SOME DIE TOO EARLY. STILL THE DOCTRINE SOUNDS STRANGE: ‘DIE AT THE RIGHT TIME.’DIE AT THE RIGHT TIME: THUS ZARATHUSTRA TEACHES. TO BE SURE, HE WHO NEVER LIVED AT THE RIGHT TIME COULD HARDLY DIE AT THE RIGHT TIME! BETTER IF HE WERE NEVER TO BE BORN! – THUS I ADVISE THE SUPERFLUOUS. BUT EVEN THE SUPERFLUOUS MAKE A GREAT THING OF THEIR DYING; YES, EVEN THE HOLLOWEST NUT WANTS TO BE CRACKED. EVERYONE TREATS DEATH AS AN IMPORTANT MATTER: BUT AS YET DEATH IS NOT A FESTIVAL. AS YET, MEN HAVE NOT LEARNED TO CONSECRATE THE FAIREST FESTIVALS. I SHALL SHOW YOU THE CONSUMMATING DEATH, WHICH SHALL BE A SPUR AND A PROMISE TO THE LIVING. THE MAN CONSUMMATING HIS LIFE DIES HIS DEATH TRIUMPHANTLY.... TO DIE THUS IS THE BEST DEATH; BUT THE SECOND BEST IS: TO DIE IN BATTLE AND TO SQUANDER A GREAT SOUL at energyenhancement.org

  • Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 17: Of the bestowing virtue, part 1
    Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 17: Of the bestowing virtue, part 1 , TELL ME: HOW DID GOLD COME TO HAVE THE HIGHEST VALUE? BECAUSE IT IS UNCOMMON AND USELESS AND SHINING AND MELLOW IN LUSTRE; IT ALWAYS BESTOWS ITSELF. ONLY AS AN IMAGE OF THE HIGHEST VIRTUE DID GOLD COME TO HAVE THE HIGHEST VALUE. GOLD-LIKE GLEAMS THE GLANCE OF THE GIVER.... THE HIGHEST VIRTUE IS UNCOMMON AND USELESS, IT IS SHINING AND MELLOW IN LUSTRE: THE HIGHEST VIRTUE IS A BESTOWING VIRTUE. TRULY, I DIVINE YOU WELL, MY DISCIPLES, YOU ASPIRE TO THE BESTOWING VIRTUE, AS I DO.... YOU THIRST TO BECOME SACRIFICES AND GIFTS YOURSELVES; AND THAT IS WHY YOU THIRST TO HEAP UP ALL RICHES IN YOUR SOUL. YOUR SOUL ASPIRES INSATIABLY AFTER TREASURES AND JEWELS, BECAUSE YOUR VIRTUE IS INSATIABLE IN WANTING TO GIVE. YOU COMPEL ALL THINGS TO COME TO YOU AND INTO YOU, THAT THEY MAY FLOW BACK FROM YOUR FOUNTAIN AS GIFTS OF YOUR LOVE at energyenhancement.org
  • Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 18: Of the bestowing virtue, part 2
    Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 18: Of the bestowing virtue, part 2, HERE ZARATHUSTRA FELL SILENT A WHILE AND REGARDED HIS DISCIPLES LOVINGLY. THEN HE WENT ON SPEAKING THUS, AND HIS VOICE WAS DIFFERENT: STAY LOYAL TO THE EARTH, MY BROTHERS, WITH THE POWER OF YOUR VIRTUE! MAY YOUR BESTOWING LOVE AND YOUR KNOWLEDGE SERVE TOWARDS THE MEANING OF THE EARTH! THUS I BEG AND ENTREAT YOU.... A HUNDRED TIMES HAS SPIRIT AS WELL AS VIRTUE EXPERIMENTED AND GONE ASTRAY. YES, MAN WAS AN EXPERIMENT. ALAS, MUCH IGNORANCE AND ERROR HAS BECOME BODY IN US! NOT ONLY THE REASON OF MILLENNIA – THE MADNESS OF MILLENNIA TOO BREAKS OUT IN US. IT IS DANGEROUS TO BE AN HEIR. WE ARE STILL FIGHTING STEP BY STEP WITH THE GIANT CHANCE, AND HITHERTO THE SENSELESS, THE MEANINGLESS, HAS STILL RULED OVER MANKIND. MAY YOUR SPIRIT AND YOUR VIRTUE SERVE THE MEANING OF THE EARTH, MY BROTHERS: AND MAY THE VALUE OF ALL THINGS BE FIXED ANEW BY YOU. TO THAT END YOU SHOULD BE FIGHTERS! TO THAT END YOU SHOULD BE CREATORS! THE BODY PURIFIES ITSELF THROUGH KNOWLEDGE; EXPERIMENTING WITH KNOWLEDGE IT ELEVATES ITSELF.... at energyenhancement.org

  • Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 19: Of the bestowing virtue, part 3
    Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 19: Of the bestowing virtue, part 3, WHEN ZARATHUSTRA HAD SAID THESE WORDS HE PAUSED LIKE ONE WHO HAS NOT SAID HIS LAST WORD; LONG HE BALANCED THE STAFF DOUBTFULLY IN HIS HAND. AT LAST HE SPOKE THUS, AND HIS VOICE WAS DIFFERENT: I NOWGO AWAY ALONE, MY DISCIPLES! YOU TOO NOWGO AWAY AND BE ALONE! SO I WILL HAVE IT. TRULY, I ADVISE YOU: GO AWAY FROM ME AND GUARD YOURSELVES AGAINST ZARATHUSTRA! AND BETTER STILL: BE ASHAMED OF HIM! PERHAPS HE HAS DECEIVED YOU. THE MAN OF KNOWLEDGE MUST BE ABLE NOT ONLY TO LOVE HIS ENEMIES BUT ALSO TO HATE HIS FRIENDS. ONE REPAYS A TEACHER BADLY IF ONE REMAINS ONLY A PUPIL. AND WHY, THEN, SHOULD YOU NOT PLUCK AT MY LAURELS? YOU RESPECT ME; BUT HOW IF ONE DAY YOUR RESPECT SHOULD TUMBLE? TAKE CARE THAT A FALLING STATUE DOES NOT STRIKE YOU DEAD! at energyenhancement.org

  • Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 20: On the blissful islands
    Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 20: On the blissful islands, ZARATHUSTRA HAS RETURNED TO THE MOUNTAINS WHERE HE LIVES A SOLITARY EXISTENCE FOR MANY YEARS – UNTIL ONE MORNING HE HAS A DREAM. FILLED WITH NEW RESOLVE AND AN OVERWHELMING DESIRE TO SHARE HIS WORDS WITH HIS FRIENDS, ZARATHUSTRA SPEAKS THUS: BEHOLD, WHAT ABUNDANCE IS AROUND US! AND IT IS FINE TO GAZE OUT UPON DISTANT SEAS FROM THE MIDST OF SUPERFLUITY. ONCE YOU SAID ‘GOD’ WHEN YOU GAZED UPON DISTANT SEAS; BUT NOW I HAVE TAUGHT YOU TO SAY ‘SUPERMAN’. GOD IS A SUPPOSITION; BUT I WANT YOUR SUPPOSING TO REACH NO FURTHER THAN YOUR CREATING WILL. COULD YOU CREATE A GOD? – SO BE SILENT ABOUT ALL GODS! BUT YOU COULD SURELY CREATE THE SUPERMAN. PERHAPS NOT YOU YOURSELVES, MY BROTHERS! BUT YOU COULD TRANSFORM YOURSELVES INTO FOREFATHERS AND ANCESTORS OF THE SUPERMAN: AND LET THIS BE YOUR FINEST CREATING! at energyenhancement.org

  • Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 21: Of the compassionate
    Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 21: Of the compassionate, AS LONG AS MEN HAVE EXISTED, MAN HAS ENJOYED HIMSELF TOO LITTLE: THAT ALONE, MY BROTHERS, IS OUR ORIGINAL SIN! AND IF WE LEARN BETTER TO ENJOY OURSELVES, WE BEST UNLEARN HOW TO DO HARM TO OTHERS AND TO CONTRIVE HARM. THEREFORE I WASH MY HAND WHEN IT HAS HELPED A SUFFERER, THEREFORE I WIPE MY SOUL CLEAN AS WELL. FOR I SAWTHE SUFFERER SUFFER, AND BECAUSE I SAWIT IWAS ASHAMED ON ACCOUNT OF HIS SHAME; AND WHEN I HELPED HIM, THEN I SORELY INJURED HIS PRIDE.... ‘BE RESERVED IN ACCEPTING! HONOUR A MAN BY ACCEPTING FROM HIM!’ – THUS I ADVISE THOSE WHO HAVE NOTHING TO GIVE. I, HOWEVER, AM A GIVER: I GIVE GLADLY AS A FRIEND TO FRIENDS. BUT STRANGERS AND THE POOR MAY PLUCK THE FRUIT FROM MY TREE FOR THEMSELVES: IT CAUSES LESS SHAME THAT WAY.... AND WE ARE THE MOST UNFAIR, NOT TOWARDS HIM WHOM WE DO NOT LIKE, BUT TOWARDS HIM FOR WHOM WE FEEL NOTHING AT ALL at energyenhancement.org

  • Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 22: Of the priests
    Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 22: Of the priests, AND ONE DAY ZARATHUSTRA MADE A SIGN TO HIS DISCIPLES AND SPOKE THESE WORDS TO THEM: HERE ARE PRIESTS: AND ALTHOUGH THEY ARE MY ENEMIES, PASS THEM BY QUIETLY AND WITH SLEEPING SWORDS!... THEY ARE BAD ENEMIES: NOTHING IS MORE REVENGEFUL THAN THEIR HUMILITY. AND HE WHO TOUCHES THEM IS EASILY DEFILED.... HE WHOM THEY CALL REDEEMER HAS CAST THEM INTO BONDAGE – INTO THE BONDAGE OF FALSE VALUES AND FALSE SCRIPTURES! AH, THAT SOMEONE WOULD REDEEM THEM FROM THEIR REDEEMER!... OH, JUST LOOK AT THESE HUTS THAT THESE PRIESTS HAVE BUILT THEMSELVES. CHURCHES THEY CALL THEIR SWEETSMELLING CAVES! OH THIS COUNTERFEIT LIGHT! OH THIS MUSTY AIR! HERE, WHERE THE SOUL MAY NOT FLY UP TO ITS HEIGHT! at energyenhancement.org

    Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance Chapter 23: The night song, IT IS NIGHT: NOW DO ALL LEAPING FOUNTAINS SPEAK LOUDER. AND MY SOUL TOO IS A LEAPING FOUNTAIN. IT IS NIGHT: ONLY NOW DO ALL SONGS OF LOVERS AWAKEN. AND MY SOUL TOO IS THE SONG OF A LOVER. SOMETHING UNQUENCHED, UNQUENCHABLE, IS IN ME, THAT WANTS TO SPEAK OUT. A CRAVING FOR LOVE IS IN ME, THAT ITSELF SPEAKS THE LANGUAGE OF LOVE. LIGHT AM I: AH, THAT I WERE NIGHT! BUT THIS IS MY SOLITUDE, THAT I AM GIRDED ROUND WITH LIGHT.... I LIVE IN MY OWN LIGHT, I DRINK BACK INTO MYSELF THE FLAMES THAT BREAK FROM ME. I DO NOT KNOWTHE JOY OF THE RECEIVER; AND I HAVE OFTEN DREAMED THAT STEALING MUST BE MORE BLESSED THAN RECEIVING. IT IS MY POVERTY THAT MY HAND NEVER RESTS FROM GIVING; IT IS MY ENVY THAT I SEE EXPECTANT EYES AND ILLUMINED NIGHTS OF DESIRE.... at energyenhancement.org
