Meister Eckhart (with Adventing words)

If I were alone in a desert

and feeling afraid,

I would want a child to be with me.

For then my fear would disappear

and I would be made strong.

This is what life in itself can do

because it is so noble, so full of pleasure

And so powerful.

 

(Meister Eckhart, in Meditations with Meister Eckhart, Introductions and versions by Matthew Fox. Santa Fe, NM: Bear and Co., 1983)
