Live Like The Rose~ January 5th.

Via on Jan 5, 2011

Meditation with the master, Meister Eckhart.

“This I know.

That the only way to live

is like the rose

which lives

without a why.

You might as yourself over a period of a thousand years the following question: ‘Why are you alive?’ And still the only response you would recieve would be: ‘I live so that I may live.’

Why does this happen?

Because life rises from it’s own foundation

and rises out of itself.

Therefore,

life lives without a reason—

life lives for itself.”

~from Meditations With Meister Eckhart by Matthew Fox
