slide 15 of 16

I know that the Immovable comes down;
I know that the Invisible appears to me;
I know that He who is far outside the whole creation
Takes me within Himself and hides me in His arms,
And then I find myself outside the world.
I, a frail, small mortal in the world,
Behold the Creator of the world, all of Him, within myself;
And I know that I shall not die,
For I am within the Life,
I have the whole of life springing up as a fountain within me.
He is in my heart, He is in heaven:
Both there and here He shows Himself to me with equal glory.

John Scotus Eriugena (810-877)



God is closer to me than I am to myself: my being depends on God’s being near me and present to me. So He is also in a stone or a log of wood, only they do not know.… So man is more blessed than a stone or a piece of wood because he is aware of God and knows how close God is to him. And I am more blessed, the more I realize this.

Meister Eckhart (1260-1327)
