Wednesday of Hope – I Believe that People Are Good

It’s really a wonder that I haven’t dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart

Finding a Joyous Field

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about. Ideas, language, even the phrase ‘each other’ doesn’t make any sense.

– Rumi

Breath as a Bridge

Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts. Whenever your mind becomes scattered, use your breath as the means to take hold of your mind again.

Is Anything Really Ever Lost?

The day misspent, the love misplaced, has inside it the seed of redemption. Nothing is exempt from resurrection.

Meister Eckhart on Sight

On this 4th Sunday of Lent, we read how Jesus heals the man who had been born blind. So this week we will reflect on sight.

The eye through which I see God is the same eye through which God sees me; my eye and God’s eye are one eye, one seeing, one knowing, one love.

― Meister Eckhart, Sermons of Meister Eckhart
