Thought of the week :)

“ God expects but one thing of you, and that is ..you should come out of yourself in so far as you are a created being and let God be God in you.”

- Meister Eckhart.

In those moments when we forget ourselves- not thinking, “ Am I happy?” but completely oblivious to our little restless Ego- we spend a brief but a beautiful holiday in Heaven.

The mystics tell us that the joy we experience in these moments of self- forgetting is our true nature, our native state.

To regain it, we simply have to empty ourselves of what hides this Joy: that is, to stop dwelling on ourselves, our desires, our likes and dislikes, our preferences. To the extent that we are not full of ourselves, God can fill us- in fact, the Mystics daringly say, He has to!

And as Rumi , the world’s Beloved Mystic beautifully says, “Once you forget yourself, God remembers you, once you become His slave, then you are Free.”
