The Hope of Loving Meister Eckhart

What keeps us alive, 
what allows us to endure ?

I think it is the hope of loving,
or being loved.

I heard a fable once
about the sun going on a journey
to find its source,
and how the moon wept
without her lover’s
warm gaze.

We weep
when light does not reach
our hearts.

We wither
like fields if someone close
does not rain their

~ Meister Eckhart
