Inspirational thought, deep thought
Meister Eckhart : God, knowledge, and spirit
"The eye with which I see God, is the same eye with which God sees me."
A virgin, in other words, is a person who is free of irrelevant ideas, as free, as he was before he existed.
If you are to know God divinely, your own knowledge must become as pure ignorance, in which you forget yourself and every other creature.
He, then, who is to be poor in spirit must be poor of all his own knowledge, so that he knows nothing of God, or creatures, or of himself. ...For if God once found a person as poor as this, he would take the responsibility of his own action and would himself be the scene of action, for God is one who acts within himself. It is here, in this poverty, that man regains the eternal being that once he was, now is, and evermore shall be.
