Post Life Is Beautiful [by Meister Eckhart]

LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL

by Meister Eckart
(translated by Constantin von Hoffmeister)


Life is beautiful! - The Earth is no pit of sorrow!

Good is who commits deeds! The deed is everything!

Germans you are - noble in blood!
The noblest part of men is the blood - if it really wants to. But also the worst part of men is the blood - if it wants to be evil.

Noble is the character of the Germans!

God's friends you are - not his slaves! Because you seek the truth!
For this, honor gives you strength!
Honor is a spark of God and the fortress of the soul!
A soul should be noble and free!
The soul is a flame of God! It is vaster than the vast heaven and larger than the cosmos!

Nice Euro-centric signature.

We're not all Germans, in fact, most of Skadi isn't. And what is the point of this thread? Honest question.

Dietrich Eckart (1868-1923):
Quote:
"Es hätte in der deutschen Geschichte wahrscheinlich keinen "Führer" Adolf Hitler gegeben, wenn er nicht am Anfang seiner politischen Laufbahn von einflussreichen Männern gefördert worden wäre. Der Münchner Polizeipräsident Ernst Pöhner gab ihm Rückendeckung, der Hauptmann Ernst Röhm stellte ihm die Verbindung zur Reichswehr her, der General Erich Ludendorff schenkte ihm sein Wohlwollen, und der Ingenieur Gottfried Feder öffnete ihm die Augen für die "Herrschaft des Zinses". Neben diesen Männern, die Hitlers politischen Werdegang in den ersten Jahren beeinflusst haben, steht der Dramatiker und Journalist Dietrich Eckart. Den meisten gilt er als der Förderer Hitlers schlechthin." (Plewnia 1970:7) Von den einen Hitler-Biographen "Gründer Hitlers", "Mentor", "Lehrer und Meister" genannt, wird Eckart von andern als "Biertisch-Politiker" abgetan. Margarete Plewnia hat es 1970 unternommen, in der Reihe Studien zur Publizistik unter dem Titel "Auf dem Weg zu Hitler" den "völkischen" Publizisten Dietrich Eckart genauer unter die Lupe zu nehmen, wobei sie sich "immer wieder vor die Aufgabe gestellt sah, zwischen Verklärung und Wirklichkeit zu unterscheiden." Die Ausführungen in diesem Kapitel basieren auf ihrer Untersuchung."

Actually, this N-S web-site lists Meister Eckhart's [c.1260-1327] work in its N-S library;

http://www.nazi.org/library/books.html

See just about a third down from the top of the list;

Meister Eckhart: Sermons and Treatises, Meister Eckhart, M.O. Walshe (Editor)(Paperback - august 1993)
Wandering Joy: Meister Eckhart's Mystical Philosophy, Eckhart et al (Paperback)

The point is that it's a beautiful passage. Need there be any more reason? And did I miss something or did he imply somewhere that all of Skadi is German? Honest questions.

It is a beautiful poem. Im sorry some of you cannot apprieciate nor enjoy it. Life is beautiful. Esp. when you consider the alternative. Whom amongst us cannot find some beauty everyday? It is there, you dont even have to look very hard to find it.
