In Love with Life: Reflections on Friedrich Nietzsche's Thus Spake Zarathustra

Availability: Ready to download

In his preface to Ecce Homo, Friedrich Nietzsche says: “With [Thus Spoke Zarathustra] I have given mankind the greatest present that has ever been made to it so far. This book, with a voice bridging centuries, is not only the highest book there is, the book that is truly characterized by the air of the heights — the whole fact of man lies beneath it at a tremendous distanc In his preface to Ecce Homo, Friedrich Nietzsche says: “With [Thus Spoke Zarathustra] I have given mankind the greatest present that has ever been made to it so far. This book, with a voice bridging centuries, is not only the highest book there is, the book that is truly characterized by the air of the heights — the whole fact of man lies beneath it at a tremendous distance — it is also the deepest, born out of the innermost wealth of truth, an inexhaustible well to which no pail descends without coming up again filled with gold and goodness.” Perhaps only a contemporary mystic like Osho could truly understand what Nietzsche meant by this statement. In Love with Life shares Osho’s understanding of both Nietzsche the man and of his seminal work, with extraordinary clarity and relevance to readers in the 21st century. Here, the reader learns much about the mysterious and revolutionary Persian mystic Zarathustra (Zoroaster), whom Nietzsche chose as a spokesperson. The result is an enchanting journey through a world where life is celebrated, not renounced, and where timeless truths prevail over the lies and distortions that continue to cripple our efforts to become healthy and whole.

    الكتاب عبارة عن تأملات أوشو لفكر الفيلسوف الألماني فريدريك نيتشه من خلال نقد كتابه "هكذا تكلم زاردشت" . أوشو يبين في كتابه مدى اعجابه بفكر الفيلسوف نيتشه ومدى استنكاره للعداء الموجه على فلسفاته موضحا أنه تمت اساءة فهمه بشكل كبير على مر السنين، خاصة وأن كتابات نيتشه تعتبر مختصرة ومقتضبة مما ساعد على إساءة تأويلها واستغلالها من قبل النازية كتشريع للحرب العالمية الثانية . أوشو يري في تعاليم زاردشت النبي الذي ألف عنه نيتشه كتاب "هكذا تكلم زاردشت" حكمة سابقة لعصرها ، ودعوة للحب والحياة السعيدة دون قيود الكتاب عبارة عن تأملات أوشو لفكر الفيلسوف الألماني فريدريك نيتشه من خلال نقد كتابه "هكذا تكلم زاردشت" . أوشو يبين في كتابه مدى اعجابه بفكر الفيلسوف نيتشه ومدى استنكاره للعداء الموجه على فلسفاته موضحا أنه تمت اساءة فهمه بشكل كبير على مر السنين، خاصة وأن كتابات نيتشه تعتبر مختصرة ومقتضبة مما ساعد على إساءة تأويلها واستغلالها من قبل النازية كتشريع للحرب العالمية الثانية . أوشو يري في تعاليم زاردشت النبي الذي ألف عنه نيتشه كتاب "هكذا تكلم زاردشت" حكمة سابقة لعصرها ، ودعوة للحب والحياة السعيدة دون قيود الدين والتعقيدات الفقهية لسلوكيات الإنسان الحر . والجدير بالذكر أن زاردشت في التاريخ كان إنسانا موحدا يدعو لإله واحد ، أما زاردشت في كتاب نيتشه فيدعو بأن الإله قد مات ، وهذا ما يدعو للتساؤل أي النسختين لزاردشت هي الحقيقية وأيهما الرمز ؟ ولما اختار نيتشه زاردشت الموحد "تاريخيا" وألبسه ثوب الإلحاد ؟ الكتاب مليء بالآراء الجامحة والشاطحة نوعا ما ، وموجهة بشكل أساسي ضد الدين والمتدينين من كل الديانات سواء كانت سماوية أو غير ذلك ، ولكنه وللأمانة لم يخلو من حكمة في وصف مراحل الوعي للإنسان وضرورة تحقيقه لأقصى إمكانيات ذاته على شاكلة "السوبرمان" لنيتشه ، وذلك من خلال اعتناق الحياة والثورة على الجهل والرجعية والقيود الدينية الغير سليمة. كتاب يستحق القراءة لمن يمتلك عين موضوعية تنتقي الحكمة من الجنون والذهب من الوحل ، لا ينصح بقراءته لمن لا يقبل النقد الديني ونقد الإله خصوصا.

    Neste livo, Osho mostra de uma forma leve e entusiasta pelo pensamento do filósofo Nietzsche. Através da análise dos seus textos, Osho foi capaz de compreender aquilo que outros não conseguiram: a sabedoria adquirida com a idade, a amor e a felicidade da vida sem que a religião a sufoque. Para além disso, há uma questão que é central nesta obra: o Deus mencionado por Zardasht será real em alguma das suas versões ou apenas algo simbólico? Pois, por sua vez, Nietzsche refere que Deus morreu. Em suma Neste livo, Osho mostra de uma forma leve e entusiasta pelo pensamento do filósofo Nietzsche. Através da análise dos seus textos, Osho foi capaz de compreender aquilo que outros não conseguiram: a sabedoria adquirida com a idade, a amor e a felicidade da vida sem que a religião a sufoque. Para além disso, há uma questão que é central nesta obra: o Deus mencionado por Zardasht será real em alguma das suas versões ou apenas algo simbólico? Pois, por sua vez, Nietzsche refere que Deus morreu. Em suma, há uma questão religiosa que nos coloca a pensar criticamente acerca daquilo em que acreditamos. É um livro que recomendo a quem gosta deste tipo de escrita e género: que têm a capacidade e a destreza para descortinar todas as entrelinhas que Nietzsche nos apresenta. Por outro lado, aqueles que não aceitam outras visões da religião, acredito que não gostarão muito da obra.
