Friedrich Nietzsche

StreetLib

Als ich vor sechs Jahren die Werke Friedrich Nietzsches kennen lernte, waren in mir bereits Ideen ausgebildet, die den seinigen ähnlich sind. Unabhängig von ihm und auf anderen Wegen als er, bin ich zu Anschauungen gekommen, die im Einklang stehen mit dem, was Nietzsche in seinen Schriften: „Zarathustra“, „Jenseits von Gut und Böse“, „Genealogie der Moral“ und „Götzendämmerung“ ausgesprochen hat. Schon in meinem 1886 erschienenen kleinen Buche „Erkenntnistheorie der Goetheschen Weltanschauung“ kommt dieselbe Gesinnung zum Ausdruck, wie in den genannten Werken Nietzsches.

This is one of the most popular classic translations of Steiner's foundational guide to the spiritual path. Knowledge of the Higher Worlds and Its Attainment is a manual for attaining suprasensory knowledge of the invisible and opens new perspectives on one's essential purpose in life.

In 1904, Rudolf Steiner first made this account of the Western esoteric path of initiation public. With great precision, he carefully leads us from the cultivation of the fundamental soul attitudes of reverence and inner tranquility to inner development through the stages of preparation, illumination, and initiation. Practical exercises in inner and outer observation and moral development are given. By patiently and persistently following these, new organs of soul and spirit begin to form that reveal the contours of the higher worlds hitherto concealed from us.

"The methods by which a student is prepared for the reception of higher knowledge are minutely prescribed. The direction he is to take is traced with unfading, everlasting letters in the worlds of the spirit where the initiates guard the higher secrets. In ancient times, anterior to our history, the temples of the spirit were also outwardly visible; today, because our life has become so unspiritual, they are not to be found in the world visible to external sight; yet they are present spiritually everywhere, and all who seek may find them."

Contents:

"Not everyone can immediately achieve spiritual vision; but the discoveries of those who have it can be health-giving life nourishment for all. The results of supersensible knowledge, when properly employed in life, prove to be not impractical, but rather, practical in the highest sense....

"The acquisition of higher knowledge is not the end, but the means to an end; the end consists in the attainment, thanks to this knowledge, of greater and truer self-confidence, a higher degree of courage, and a magnanimity and perseverance such as cannot, as a rule, be acquired in the lower world....

"The student places all the higher knowledge he has acquired at the service of humanity." --Rudolf Steiner
