Meister Eckhart and the Rapid River
Meditation #45, June 25, 2019     Engaged Mysticism

Today I offer reflections from one of Meister Eckhart’s sermons, which I title: “The Holy Spirit, Like a Rapid River, Divinizes Us.”

Eckhart writes: “There is a river whose streams refresh the city of God, and it sanctifies the dwelling of the Most High.” (Ps. 46:4)

He continues: “The rapid or quick-flowing river has caused the city of God to rejoice” (Ps. 46:4).  We should pay attention to three things in connection with these words.  First, the ‘rapid river’ of God; next, the city to which it flows; third, the advantage that comes from this.
