Meditation with the master, Meister Eckhart.
“This I know.
That the only way to live
is like the rose
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.
life lives without a reason—
life lives for itself.”
