Lent – Day 31: Releasing the objects


THIS ONE IS FOR APRIL 1st

Some people want to see God with their eyes as they see a cow, and to love Him 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 Him 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 (1260?-1327?)

I love Eckhart and I think this is one of his most powerful quotes. We have soooo much stuff if our lives and learning to remove that stuff will be an improvement in relating to the Divine.
