Meister Eckehart

I would like to share with you a passage from one of Meister Eckehart’s sermons (No. 4) which I find particularly suitable to all seekers of Truth. This applies not only to astrology but also to the deeper questions of life.

“That which can be expressed in words, must come from within and find its way out. It must move through the inner Form and not come from without. It must come from within. It lives in the innermost part of the Soul. There where all things are present to you, where they are alive and searching and (there) in the best and highest form.”

“Was im eigentlichen Sinne in Worten geaüssert werden kann, das muss von innen heraus kommen und sich durch die innere Form bewegen, nicht dagegen von außen herein kommen, sondern: von innen muss es heraus kommen. Es lebt recht eigentlich im Innersten der Seele. Dort sind dir alle Dinge gegenwärtig und im Innern lebend und suchend und sind (dort) im Besten und im Höchsten.”

In the context of astrology, we don’t need hundreds of books to understand astrology. Only a few books, such as William Lilly’s “Christian Astrology” are needed to stimulate the inner core of understanding…”where all things are present”.

A happy 2nd Advent
