The sutra
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....
I do not teach you the neighbor but the friend. May the friend be to you a festival of the earth and a foretaste of the superman. I teach you the friend and his overflowing heart. But you must understand how to be a sponge if you want to be loved by overflowing hearts.
I teach you the friend in whom the world stands complete, a vessel of the good -- the creative friend, who always has a complete world to bestow. And as the world once dispersed for him, so it comes back to him again, as the evolution of good through evil, as the evolution of design from chance.
May the future and the most distant be the principle of your today: in your friend you should love the superman as your principle.
... Thus spake Zarathustra.
