Question: Has Nietzsche’s “Thus Spake Zarathustra” being inspired at least partly by the Ascended Master Zarathustra? The way Nietzsches speaks about his encounters with Zarathustra and a general spirited tone makes one think so. What are the pitfalls of his artwork? Is it just another philosophical work of art?
Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.
Nietzsche was not inspired by an ascended master. But this does not mean that his works are coming from fallen beings. Nietzsche was an example of a person who was open to some ideas from the ascended masters even though he was not sponsored directly by us. But he was also open to some dark ideas. So there is a mixture. And that is why you need to use your discernment when you study his work and the work of most other philosophers.
It is not that Nietzsche was a destructive person or a destructive philosopher, but he did have certain psychological issues. That meant that he was open to certain ideas that are not in alignment with the teachings of the ascended masters.
And so you need to, when you evaluate the work of any philosopher, you need to actually look at the philosopher, his or her life, his or her psychology and get some idea of where the philosopher is coming from. You will often see that a philosopher grew up in a certain environment and accepted certain ideas as being beyond questioning. And these ideas or paradigms as they are often called, then formed the boundaries for where the person’s mind could go in the philosophical deliberations. So most philosophers cannot be separated from their cultural context. And they certainly cannot be separated from their individual psychology.
You will notice that whether it is philosophers, whether it is scientists, whether it is writers, whether it is state leaders, religious leaders, there is a tendency in the world, a very subtle tendency,that is rarely articulated, to always consider them as near perfect human beings that are not affected by their personal psychology.
This is of course coming from the fallen beings who want you to look at them as being beyond questioning, so you do not need to look at their personal psychology, because they know that if you look at their personal psychology, you will see the imbalances, you would see the deep psychological wounds and traumas that means they cannot be considered neutral. And therefore what they brought forth, what they did is not neutral either.
Many people are open to the fact that Hitler was very much affected by his psychology, but they fail to apply this to many other leaders, philosophers, writers, what have you. You can never separate a person from his or her psychology. There are of course people who have overcome and healed much of their psychology so they can be more neutral than others. But you always need to consider the psychology of the person bringing forth anything, or doing anything, as of course you need to consider your own psychology.
