Lovely Sampling of Meister Eckhart's Work Apr 16, 2008
**** This is a little book---only about 80 pages---and 5" by 4" and 1/5 inches thick. It fits in your purse or back pocket and is easy to carry anywhere and read bit by bit anytime, or all at once! As such a small volume, it is a manageable introduction to a deep spiritual teacher, containing a brief introduction, four sermons, and 22 "counsels" which are brief essays exploring a particular point. It is Meister Eckhart's actual writings without interpretation.
I was unfamiliar with Meister Eckhart's work (spiritual writings rooted in paradox and mystery instead of logic and reason) and wasn't sure if I'd like or understand it, so this book was the perfect place to start. The pieces that were selected for the book are abridged from a collection of the author's work found in "Meister Eckhart , Vol. 2: The Essential Sermons, Commentaries, Treatises and Defense (Classics of Western Spirituality)".
As it ended up, I didn't enjoy for his writings at all (they just didn't resonate with my own particular spiritual beliefs), but was overall very pleased with the book because it helped me to decide and to become introduced to his work without spending a fortune or investing a lot of time.
What a convenient format used for introductions to broad subjects. I wish more teachers/writers would have their work sampled like this.
