Swamiji Shyam, Meister Eckhart, self, being, God, spirit, knowledge, and mystery

excerpted from THE WAY OF WONDER: a return to the mystery of ourselves, by Jack Haas

 

                 

           

“We do not even know what the self is.”

Swamiji Shyam

 

 

            Therefore, if we are to alter the game, we must simply cease being suffering, separate, created beings, and instead return to the memory of the enigmatic One Being which we have for too long fallen away from, through the infinite labyrinths of our own Godlike amnesia, as it were.

As Meister Eckhart declared: “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.”

Eckhart is saying that once we become empty of all the dross within, God the Mystery can do nothing but rush in to fill the vacuum of our absence.

It is up to each one of us to choose between suffocating in the vortex of the limited, knowable self, or instead to cut the cords which bind, and let ourselves drift out into, and be, the vast, incomprehensible sea of Being itself.
