Philosophy #123

“You must be ready to burn yourself in your own flame;
how could you rise anew if you have not first become ashes?”
― Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra


This phenomenal quote made me realize how long I burned myself with my own flame. I am in the stage of rebuilding something new with what was left. Indeed, from pain we are born, and once we accept that, pain no longer matters. I could say a lot more about this quote, but I want to hear what you guys have to say about it. Have you burned yourselves in your own flame? If so, what happened? Would you dare rise from your own ashes? What is stopping you from reaching your personal goals? Stay amazing and remember that it is essential to study other people’s philosophy, but we must never forget to have our own philosophy to follow.

Leave your thoughts about this quote, I am intrigued to read how you perceive this quote or how you can dissect it further. Thank you and don’t forget to think, for a thing will be just a thing, until you think beyond that thing.

  1. “You must be ready” doesn’t automatically mean you have to put yourself in a situation, so you can burn. To me, this quote is acknowledging the fact that life can be harsh and therefore we must anticipate suffering and pain. So if you have to go through a tough moment in life, you know it is something you can deal with, because you are ready.
    Does this make sense?

  2. Everything goes to Ashes or rather Everything is Ashes.
    Burning in your own flame is the criteria.
    In the Ashes you start to rebuild. That built shall become the strongest.
    Then shall not require any flame to burn.
    The light shall glow by itself and that is the Self.
    Manuel is that enough.
