A Meister Eckhardt Meditation
Become aware of what is in you. Announce it,
pronounce it, produce it, and give birth to it.

This month I found for R10 this book (2012). Living in rural Ireland, James Bremmer, interested in spirituality, mysticism and philosophy, teaches creative writing. The title plays off Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Now: A
Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment (2004). The shoulders of the giants on which Bremmer stands include Thoreau, Dame Julian of Norwich, Jung, Hildegard von Bingen, William Blake, Rumi, Krishnamurthi and Diogenes.

(I based a Saturday morning story for 5 Nov on Diogenes. What’s app me if you wish to receive the stories) I began thinking of my giants of the past and Meister Eckhart (c. 1260 – c. 1328 ) suddenly knocked on my door. This letter is about how I have experienced him, partly filtered through Matthew Fox’s, creation spirituality.
