A description of the experience
Meister Eckhart selected writings – edited and translated by Oliver Davies
Once the thought entered my mind, not so long ago, that the fact I am human is something I have in common with everyone else.
Cows too, see and hear, eat and drink, but what I am belongs to no one other than myself, to no person, no angel or to God, except in so far as I am one with him.
People should not worry so much about what they do but rather about what they are.
