A Life of Přinašeč

(the Bringer)


A holiday always belonged to the pleasant moments of his life. As long as he was able to, he would visit some of his friends. For example in South Bohemia, he visited the family of Mr J. M., who helped him also in Prague for a long time. People in the country really appreciated that they too were looked after. It was the period from July to August. In those days, he always stayed strictly incognito. Even the closest neighbours did not have an idea who he was and sometimes even the landlords themselves did not know. It was like that for example in Jablečno where he used to go with his family: his mother, brother and his brother’s wife. When I was making a video recording with the memories of eyewitnesses, the owner of the house; where they used to stay, was one of them. It was only then he discovered who had stayed in his summer house. He felt a bit sorry about finding out too late.

The family of one of his brothers, Václav, helped him throughout his life. Also thanks to them, his life was easier to bear, especially in old age. He deeply loved his niece who is a doctor nowadays and he asked me to teach her philosophy and biotronic healing after his death when the right time comes.

After the daylong, year-round truly exhausting work, it was necessary for him to rest to gain energy for the following day and period which the ill in their need could not understand. It sometimes resulted in them chasing him. It happened more than once that people contacted him at any time of day, even at night.

He liked making trips to the country with friends by car, and he really enjoyed going to the theatre Semafor. Mr J.Z. himself was very funny and he liked wise humour. It was one of his traits, this way, he might have balanced out the uneasy fate of the people around him, and also his own. At the bottom of his wardrobe, he stored old humoristic magazines from the First Republic and occasionally, he went through them when he had free time.

During one part of his life, he was accompanied by his four-legged friend, the alsatian Bojíček, whom he had trained to answer the door to visitors.

‘If man realized that the meaning of his life, which he lives now, is to be in the service to the others, then he would lead a different life. In first place, there would not be every ‘me’ but common interest. This is the religion of future! In religious thinking, this is the opposite of what man has in his religious teachings nowadays.’

J. Z.

He had empathy for all living creatures and they loved him for that and it was not just because of ‘grub’.

As he had to heal in his own flat, he arranged an improvised waiting room in the hall. There were a few chairs, on the wall, there was a mirror in a wooden frame and in its corner there was a card with a telephone number. On the right, you could enter the room in which there were two wardrobes, a cupboard, a sofa, a TV, a gas stove and a table with a gas burner, folded papers and a tin plate which he would burn the paper on. He washed his hands in the fire during healing. The windows led into the street, and it was possible to see the front court and a part of Petřín.

Below the windows, he also used to see visitors of another sort. After pronouncing the words: ‘yum, yum,’ with great love, he used to pour grain to his feathered companions a couple of times a day. Ferda, Nožička, from whom somebody had taken a leg, and Běloch often waited behind the corner although feeding pigeons was against the law and was banned and fined.

Thanks to his kindness, they used to eat out of his hand when he was sitting on a piano stool. It was really moving. A close relationship with animals was a life-long trait of his. He also used to ‘chase girls’ which meant that he walked along the river and fed swans and other animals. Sometimes I had the feeling that they disappointed him less than people.

I remember a story when Mr J.Z. had a kidney colic. It was such a terrible pain that I took him to the urological ward in hospital in Motol. There were a few people in the waiting room. We checked in properly and waited until they called us. Mr J.Z. was suffering a lot and doctors were passing by. In the end we were alone in the waiting room. After a few hours of waiting, I addressed the doctor asking whether he was not ashamed of breaking the doctor’s vow. And we left without getting any treatment. Mr J.Z. was already well-known and not all doctors respected his work. It was a difficult moment of helplessness.

Incidentally, Mr J.Z.’ problems with his kidneys were caused during the period when he worked for the National Museum, as one of the few dishes; which he could eat as a vegetarian, was spinach with dumplings. After his awakening, Mr J.Z. also became a life-long teetotaler which is natural part of biotronika (biotronics) alongside vegetarianism.

Another company which gathered with Mr J.Z. was a group of vegetarians in Praha-Braník. Also here, Mr J.Z. answered the questions of the attendees. One of the participants was Mrs M. from a very spiritual family who Mr J.Z. led as his disciple and nowadays her daughter follows her on her spiritual journey.

The same would happen in a company in Plzeň. People used to gather there to be able to hear the answers to what they were interested in and what they could not hear anywhere but from Mr J.Z. There was a man, Mr K., who was led as a disciple for a long time. Unfortunately, after many years, he deviated in a slightly different direction and his studies had to be ended. It was a pity but there was nothing else to do.

Mr J.Z. symbolically described the situation in this way: ‘A disciple is like a boat pulled on a rope against the current of a river. If it sails in the given direction and does not turn the helm too violently, the boat sails easily. Otherwise, the sailor is endangered by capsizing because of unsuitable steerage and therefore the rope must be let go. The sailor has freedom and – paddles. Being released was in the interest of the disciple.’ A high spiritual master leads a disciple ceaselessly, for example during sleep. Receiving such great gifts could, in unsuitable hands, cause a catastrophe by strengthening the current personal imbalance. As used to be said: ‘You cannot pour clean wine into a dirty dish.’ Or disciples used to be told: ‘You shall stay in my name. ’

Nevertheless, it has been always a bit sad to meet somebody who became close to Mr J.Z. as their memories were often somehow distorted, mixed up with stories from somewhere else. As regards Mr J.Z.’s vegetarianism, I have been for example told that he ate meat regularly and apparently the person who said it only protects and apologizes his own tendency and taste.

Rumor could be an entirely separate chapter. Mr J.Z. always used to ask me: ‘Tomáš, are they gossiping about you yet?’ And then he added: ’If so, you should value that, it is a sign that you are worth it. Otherwise, nobody would speak about you. It is a sort of praise if certain people do not like you.

The same was, however, true for himself even in a much greater extent. For example, he was smeared and condemned by numerous conmen and charlatans for his lifelong attitude that it is not possible to ask money for spiritual treatment and education. Maybe because, he mirrored their own endless greed by this attitude. And there were more such things. On the contrary, some others presented themselves falsely as his disciples in order to get more patients for their private surgery or clinic. It was similar to the scene from Čapek’s White Disease where the professor’s first assistant establishes his own private surgery after the meeting with Dr Galén and he starts using a nonfunctional copy of Galén’s medicine there. As if the author of the White disease had been inspired by life, however, as Čapek described everything a long time in advance, we would be speaking about clairvoyance here.
