Meister Eckhart was a German friar and mystic. In "The Attractive Power of God," he observes that God draws us toward him, but we must cooperate with this movement. In "The Nearness of the Kingdom," he reflects on Jesus' teaching that the Kingdom is at hand, and that we are near the Kingdom when we detach ourselves from worldly things. Then, he says, that soul needs no human preaching or instruction; it is taught from within and assured of eternal life. In "The Angel's Greeting," he offers a meditation on the angelic salutation. In "True Hearing" Eckhart teaches that to know God we must align ourselves with his Will rather than self-will. "The Self-Communication of God" deals with the gift God gives us of knowledge of himself. "Sanctification" reflects on the highest good, which is to be like God. In the final sermon, "Outward and Inward Morality," Meister Eckhart writes: "The Divine Light permeates the soul and lifts it above the turmoil of temporal things to rest in God."
