Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Thus spake Zarathustra – Nietzsche
See this languishing one! Only a span breadth is he from his goal; but from weariness hath he lain down obstinately in the dust, this brave one!
From weariness yawneth he at the path, at the earth, at the goal, and at himself; not a step further will he go – this brave one
Now gloweth the sun upon him, and the dogs lick at his sweat; but he lieth there in his obstinacy and preferreth to languish –
A span breadth from his goal, to languish!
Verily ye will have to drag him into his heaven by the hair of his head – this hero!
