Journal of my Work, Travel and Philosophy

I think I had to do it one day, because to know a thing is to be liberated from it. I had to share , and I take the liberty of quoting from the prologue of Friedrich Nietzsche’s book ” Thus Spake Zarathustra ”

“Zarathustra went down the mountain alone, no one meeting him. When he entered the forest, however, there suddenly stood before him an old man, who had left his holy cot to seek roots. And thus spake the old man to Zarathustra:

“No stranger to me is this wanderer: many years ago passed he by. Zarathustra he was called; but he hath altered.

Then thou carriedst thine ashes into the mountains: wilt thou now carry thy fire into the valleys? Fearest thou not the incendiary’s doom?

Yea, I recognise Zarathustra. Pure is his eye, and no loathing lurketh about his mouth. Goeth he not along like a dancer?

Altered is Zarathustra; a child hath Zarathustra become; an awakened one is Zarathustra: what wilt thou do in the land of the sleepers?

As in the sea hast thou lived in solitude, and it hath borne thee up. Alas, wilt thou now go ashore? Alas, wilt thou again drag thy body thyself?”

Zarathustra answered: “I love mankind.” “

I do believe that we all have our mountains that we have resigned ourselves to. Now whether it was to collect the honey of wisdom or just delving in the absolutism of the collective consciousness, is a call which one can take. But if you have collected the honey and  turned the ashes which you carry of yourself, to fire you walk with me . Let us light the way together.
