from "Meditations With..." - by Meister Eckhart

God's ground is my ground
and my ground is God's ground.
Here I live on my own
as God lives on his own.
All our works
should work out of this innermost ground
without a why or a wherefore.
God and the soul
do one work together
and very fruitfully.
all that this person works
God works.
And just as I can do almost nothing without God,
so too God can accomplish nothing
apart from me.
