Thought for the day, Thursday 5th May

“If a flea could use reason,
and if it could use it explore
the eternal abyss of divine being
out of which it originally came,
then all of the ideas, ideals and images of “God”
it could discover couldn’t make it any happier.
Therefore, we pray to be done
with these “God”- images and instead
allow the truth to break us back
through into that eternity
where the highest angel, the flea and the soul
are already the same in one truth:
where “I” was at the first beginning,
when “I” wanted what “I” was,
and “I” was what “I” wanted.”

Meister Eckhart (c.126 – 1328)
