The Talks of Instruction that Eckhart gave to his student monks around 1300 are about how to be a Christian, and are just as practical and relevant in the 21st century. Don't be concerned about following a particular way, as all good ways are of God. If you stop worrying about yourself and your life, God will enter in by the space that is left, and fill it. Develop the habit of seeing God in all things, for "whoever truly possesses God in the right way, possesses him in all places: on the street, in any company, as well as in a church or a remote place." If I had to have only one spiritual guide beside the Bible, this is it: robust, genial, authoritative, humane. ( )
