The prophecy of Nietzsche



I am something that I shall overcome”
Nietzsche – Thus spoke Zarathustra


        When I had my first read for Nietzsche , I had some complex circumstances : as a graduate of mathematics and computer major with an international professional certificate , I remained jobless for years which made me depressed.
I felt of being a looser with social rejection may be because I come from a different ethnic , I had no money , no friends or partner and no readers for my poems and stories.
But when I first read thus spoke Zarathustra , I felt like words were filling my hollowness inside, his writings specially Zarathustra touched my heart for being applicable to my current circumstances and that brought me closer to Nietzsche himself as a friend , as his soul were talking to mine and dictating advises to me.
Hence , he became my mentor and my prophet who guided me to a peacefully state of self acceptance that I never thought I would achieve.
I embraced being me considering my differences as advantages, I even neglected what I thought to be social rejection .
All this positive energy resulted in more positive deeds in my life.
I started to read again , and decided to complete my graduate education by changing the school.
I kept an electronic quote book for Nietzsche to keep his words close to empower , inspire and conquer my loneliness by providing an adorable company.
Nietzsche writings lead me to rethink about my religious constants and motivated me to read more about other religions including Zarathustrian which I mastered and addressed a lecture about .
Also , east Asian religions were among my researches and I gained a good knowledge of Buddhism .
All these helped me reform my new religious and spiritual beliefs.
Nietzsche proposed me the most important gift which is: purpose of life . Nietzsche lead me to believe in myself and the greatness of mankind , lead me to accept this life' struggle to reach my greatest target: to develop myself, to overcome , to be better and better .


I ow Nietzsche my life and I am proud to have him as a mentor and a prophet.
