Background

Another almost Zen like statement

A description of the experience

Meister Eckhart selected writings – edited and translated by Oliver Davies
Sermon 6

Chrysostom says ‘these are challenging words for those who have embraced this world and material things, which are sweet to possess but difficult and bitter to part with’. 

This shows us how demanding it is for certain people, who know nothing of spiritual things, to turn from the things of the world..

On the other hand, it is easy for an insightful person who understands the things of the spirit to free themselves from material things.
