The sutra
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.
