Splash du Jour: Monday

When the 13th century mystic, Meister Eckhart was asked, How then should I love God? he replied:
You should love God non-mentally, that is to say the soul should become non-mental and stripped of her mental nature. For as long as your soul is mental, she will possess images. As long as she has images, she will possess intermediaries, and as long as she has intermediaries, she will not have unity or simplicity. As long as she lacks simplicity, she does not truly love God, for true love depends upon simplicity.

Have a great Monday!
