Meister Eckhart and a free mind

“A free mind can achieve all things. But what is a free mind?

A free mind is one that is untroubled and unfettered by anything which has not bound its best part to any particular ‘manner of being’ or ‘devotion’ and which does not seek its own interest in anything but is always immersed in God’s most precious will, having left behind what is its own. It is us that as we exist in and for ‘things’ who hold ourselves back, for we do not stand in proper relation to them.”

– Meister Eckhart
