Eckhart: the ever-present present

Tuesday, January 1, 2019
    Feast of the Naming & Circumcision of Jesus
    [Jesus said,] “Your father Abraham rejoiced at the thought of seeing my day; he saw it and was glad.”
    “You are not yet fifty years old,” the Jews said to him, “and you have seen Abraham!”
    “I tell you the truth,” Jesus answered, “before Abraham was born, I am!”
    —John 8:56-58 (KJV)
    The now wherein God made the first man, and the now wherein the last man disappears, and the now I speak in, are all the same in God where this is but the now.
    ... Meister Eckhart (1260?-1327?), Works of Meister Eckhart, London: J. M. Watkins, 1924, p. 37 (see the book)
    See also John 8:56-58; Ex. 3:14; Ps. 2:7; John 1:1-2; Col. 1:17; Heb. 1:10-12; 13:8
Quiet time reflection:
    Your truth is limitless, Lord.
