Eckhart’s wisdom to society’s problems of today!
Matthew Fox is the author of over 30 books including The Hidden Spirituality of Men, Christian Mystics, and most recently Meister Eckhart. A preeminent scholar and popularizer of Western mysticism, he became an Episcopal priest after being expelled from the Catholic Church by Cardinal Ratzinger, who later became Pope Benedict XVI.
Matthew is an instrumental teacher and scholar in the revival of Western mysticism travelling the world to share his message. He fell in love with Meister Eckhart 30 years ago when Eckhart came to him in a dream after a serious car accident – walking along a beach together. He found an affinity with him through his wonderful teachings and was shocked at surprised at the synchronicity of articles that he himself had written which we straight from Eckhart’s teachings.
He reminds us that to have faith is to trust, trust in God, the Universe, trust yourself and to understand that good parenting is key to ensure we fully understand the importance of trust. Being in silence and acknowledging our intuitive self through meditation is a very powerful way to learn trust. It enables us to get out of the monkey brain process and allow ourselves to see our purpose in life.
This fascinating book embraces the God of wonder and joy, the gifts from Buddhism, Hinduism, Sufiism or indigenous wisdom, the blessings from the return of the Divine Feminine and even addressing psychology. It’s offers wisdom to our journey as individuals and as communities and helps to carry us to this new level of evolution, this deeper expression of what it means to be human at this time in history.
“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr
