The Hope of Loving

The Hope of Loving 

by Meister Eckhart

Watercolor by NW (22×30″) 1980s

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
kindness upon us.

      Thank you, Tammy!

      And yes, it is much simpler and easier for us nowadays to know that we are loved, but for Meister Eckhart, living in the late 13th century, early 14th…
      not so much… Harsh times, those…
