What is Your Image of God?

Some people want to see God with their eyes as they see a cow, and to love [God] as they love their cow – for the milk and cheese and profit it brings them. This is how it is with people who love God for the sake of outward wealth or inward comfort. They do not rightly love God, when they love [God] for their own advantage. Indeed, I tell you the truth, any object you have in your mind. however good, will be a barrier between you and the inmost Truth.

– Meister Eckhart

  1. Love the Meister Eckhart qoute. It’s sort of like Thomas Berry saying the universe is not a collection of objects, but that of a communion of subjects: like the cow! Thanks Pat.

    • So glad you enjoyed it, Bruce. I love Thomas Berry, too. I imagine that both Thomases would appreciate being compared with the other. Peace, Pat
