Sacred Cycles

Spring has arrived today in the Pacific Northwest of the USA.  73 degrees and sunshine lured me out to the lake to ponder the message it might have for me.  It’s astounding that such a small, seemingly inconsequential event can awaken us to the essence of life.

Connections poem

 “The seed of God is in us. Given an intelligent and hard-working farmer, it will thrive and grow up to God, whose seed it is; and accordingly its fruits will be God-nature. Pear seeds grow into pear trees, nut seeds into nut trees, and God-seed into God. ”       § Meister Eckhart

  1. Rita,
    Thank you for expanding on Eckhart’s beautiful words. Your version sings.
    When I was first introduced to Eckhart I found him a little pedantic for my taste….I like my mystics drunk on the Beloved!
    …so I appreciate you offering up some sweetness from the Meister with a sublime Rita twist!! 🙂

  2. This is delicious, Amanda, thank you. The Meister does have a mind like a razor, which I love about him. I also deeply appreciate that his mysticism spills out into the marketplace where he advocates for social justice. When I need “drunk ” I go to Catherine and Julian!
