We now continue with our selections from Meister Eckhart’s sermons, which encourage us to find and get closer to God’s essential nature. Just as fire infuses its essence and clearness into dry wood, so has God done with man. He has created human soul and infused His glory into it, and yet in His own essence has remained unchangeable. It is essential to God to give, for His essence is His goodness and His goodness is His love. God brings forth His Son in thee, whether thou likest it or not, whether thou sleepest or wakest; God worketh His own will. Whoso will hear the wisdom of the Father must dwell deep, and abide at home, and be at unity with himself. The man who abides in the will of God wills nothing else than what God is, and what He wills. The eye with which I see God is the same with which God sees me. My eye and God’s eye is one eye, and one sight, and one knowledge, and one love. May God and the Eternal Wisdom grant us to remain equally immovable and unalterable with Himself. Amen.
