“God is at home, it’s we who have gone out for a walk.” – Meister Eckhart
As we celebrate the mystery of the Easter in these days, we yearn ever more ardently for the coming of the Messianic Spirit who comes to plant into the deepest recesses of the human heart “Christ in us, the hope of glory” (cf. Col. 1:27).
Pray for the grace to recognize that the supreme task in life for us who have received that Christ-bearing Spirit is to attend first to what is within; to God’s relentless desire to draw near to us in the depths of our ‘inner home,’ the heart. To fail in this journey within to meet God in the heart is to fail in fulfilling the singular calling of man among all creatures: inviting God to be at home into His own creation.
And those who turn thus within are best at then turning without in love toward others in the manner of God, whose Threefold inward and eternally Triune love is forever expending itself outward in the magnificent works of creation and redemption.
Hush your busied self, be still and return home to attend to your Guest for a while before you return to your other guests who knock at the door…
