BOGUE CHITTO STATE PARK, LA—I sat on a railing, on a boardwalk, overlooking a pond and watched leaves fall from the trees into the water. The wind, striking them, scoots them about like tiny sailboats—guiding them along their destiny.
I have been contemplating and practicing the words I read a few days ago, written by the 13th century mystic Meister Eckhart:
When we go out of ourselves through obedience and strip ourselves of what is ours, then God must enter into us; for when someone wills nothing for themselves, then God must will on their behalf just as he does for himself.
- The less there is of me, the more there is of Her.
- Self blocks God.
- The pelican knows how to read the currents.
- Emptiness and Radiance flowing in harmony.
- Softly and gently—less yang Wayne and more yin Her.
I don’t know where it’s all leading, I don’t know where the currents are taking me. I am a man of faith, but it’s difficult to relinquish all control.
I don’t know where the River flows… but then, neither does the snowy white pelican.
