Why is the primeval Zarathustra = Aristotle = Master Jesus?
By Hermann Keimeyer
of an inquiry from our readers´ circle, I try to explain once more my oppinion
this question - the detailed reasons are given in Hermann Keimeyer´s writing How Does One Find
the Masters in the Higher Worlds?
Zarathustra, the founder of the ancient Persian culture-epoch, renounced his
forces in his incarnation as Aristotle in order to form Western thinking only by means of human forces
of thinking. He took over the spiritual germ of Socrates´s physical body before his descent to the
earth. Socrates was a young soul, whereas he was an old one, however, Aristotle needed this body
for his goals of life. Therefore, Socrates had to look for a substitute for his incarnation, and that´s why
he was also that ugly – like Tomberg who said of himself that he was as ugly as a pig.
his incarnation as Aristotle, the Zarathustra's soul resumed his own spiritual
germ of an old soul
that had been waiting in the lunar sphere and returned the spiritual germ of Socrates's physical body
to him for his further incarnations.
Steiner explained in his lectures that Aristotle was not embodied at the moment
of the Mystery
of Golgotha. This may be interpreted in such a way – according to our investigations in the higher
worlds (in the spiritual Goetheanum) – that the Mystery of Golgotha only begins with the baptism in the
Jordan. The period before it was a time of preparation. And when
(the ego of) Aristotle (= primeval Zarathustra) was suspended out of his physical body and other
members at the baptism in the Jordan to sacrifice them to the sun archangel Christ who entered
into them, there it happened that Aristotle´s ego-being that was called Master Jesus from now on
could create the sacrificed members anew for his further incarnations.
fact that Rudolf Steiner is identical with Master Jesus is proved to any
Michael's pupil who is
allowed to experience an astral wandering to the spiritual Goetheanum, the cosmic Grail cult, and in
the writing of Werner Christian Simonis (he published approx. 20 writings) entitled: Guarded by the
Masters (Z). Marie Steiner is there quoted who regretted at that time that the members of the
Anthroposophical Society had not recognised that Rudolf Steiner´s higher self was Master Jesus.
