You take a deep breath, you make this last
These should be the best days of your life :)

BOOK OF THE DAY:
Thus Spoke Zarathustra by Friedrich Nietzsche
Thus Spoke Zarathustra is Friedrich Nietzsche’s masterpiece, in other words it is his baby. He has called this philosophical piece “the deepest book ever written.” Although a grandiose statement, he may not too far off, Thus Spoke Zarathustra flirts with the entanglement of the beauty between Western philosophy and poetry. 
Zarathustra, the fictional character Nietzsche has created is his outlet in exploring dangerous philosophical topics, such as the “death of God.” Zarathustra has abandoned his solitude in the mountains to enlighten the world about his epiphany, the possible divinity of humanity as God’s successor, the Ubermensch. The Ubermensch is superman, an overman; he is the ultimate goal for humanity. The Ubermensch is the the answer for the death of God and the creation of new values. 
One of the most interesting concepts in Nietzsche’s philosophical approach is his nihilist diagnosis and contradiction of it. He constantly speaks of angels and other mystical creatures. Perhaps Zarathustra’s idea of the Ubermensch is merely wishful thinking. 
Written in four parts, Thus Spoke Zarathustra had little recognition in Nietzsche’s lifetime, but it has become a staple in Western philosophy and literature. Written in narrative prose, Nietzsche’s philosophy is overwhelmingly attractive. 
We recommend you hold off in reading this novel until later in life. It is exasperatingly beautiful and thought-provoking. It is also a humbling read, but an unforgettable one.

And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.

While deep in the alpha state this past weekend, I was told to call upon my “wise and loving.” This was the image that arrived.

Have you ever been broken to pieces over and over again and even when you were trying to pick those pieces up they kept breaking again until they literally turned to crumbs and dust. But you still tried to pick them up even though you realised, even if you managed to put all of those back together, it won’t be like it used to. And that’s when it hits you. This literally changed me and I can never go back to like how I used to be and i don’t know how to get through this’ ? I am and it just sucks!

Today, after a struggle through the complex of my mind, I found myself smiling at the idea of being a paradox.

When trouble strikes, head to the library. You will either be able to solve the problem, or simply have something to read as the world crashes down around you.
