Not knowing

File:A glimpse into the vast ocean blue.jpg

The great Meister Eckhart knew that life was much greater than what he could grasp or make sense of. He reminds us that holding a space for what we do not know is just as important as our ideas and concepts about what is happening. What do we really know about ourselves, our experience, our world?:

“I ask God to rid me of God,” Meister Eckhart says.

The God, who is known and familiar, is far too small for him.
