Monday Musings: Go Into Your Own Ground

Raunculus, Le Reve Cafe, Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, February 2009

A human being has so many skins inside, covering the depths of the heart. We know so many things, but we don't know ourselves! Why, thirty or forty skins or hides, as thick and hard as an ox's or bear's, cover the soul. Go into your own ground and learn to know yourself there. 

— Meister Eckhart

What we plant in the soil of contemplation, we shall reap in the harvest of action.
— Meister Eckhart

The ripples of John O'Donohue continue to spread across my heart with his opening me to the wisdom of 13th century mystic theologian Meister Eckhart. For a spiritual practice, O'Donohue, an Eckhart scholar, recommends reading an Eckhart sermon every few days and letting the words "work their way into your heart."

May you find words of comfort and joy during the coming week!
