ALL WELCOME to Join Kathryn Pile 5pm
More words this week from Matthew Fox’s book, Meditations with Meister Eckhart, the 13th and 14th century mystic who represents so beautifully the creation-centered spiritual tradition that begins with humanity’s potential to act divinely both by way of compassion and of beauty-making and sharing. Mathew says…this book is for all those daring to make the spiritual journey and to befriend the darkness, and, may the hope of Meister Eckhart accompany you…
The aim of our meditation this week is to create a sacred space for God’s Presence…and by maintaining our intention towards that Presence, through breath, image or word (if distracted), and ultimately through silence…experience a response from God’s Presence at an individual heart felt level. This is the heart of Centering Prayer.
Let’s begin…Meister Eckhart says on letting go and letting be:
- One should love God mindlessly, / by this I mean that your soul ought to be/ without mind or mental activities/ or images or representations. / Bare your soul of all mind/ And stay there without mind.
- …let your own ‘being you’ sink away/ and melt into/ ‘God’s being God.’ / In this way your ‘you’ and God’s ‘his,’ / will become a completely one ‘my.’
Relax now in body and mind, slow your breathing, and enter your meditation, centering your prayer, your will and intention on loving God mindlessly…seeing yourself one with God…a completely one ‘my.’
Love and every blessing
