is this even meister eckhart or is it fox's musings?
on 31 March 2013
book is very sparse in information. if written like a traditional book it would scarsely contain 30 pages, but instead each sentance is strached out to fill an enire page (!) - - this is deemed meditative?
also, the book doesn't say whether this is eckhart's actual words or if they are the author's (editor's?). thats a grave flaw.
as for the work itself, it stars off well as an almost buddhist theme of emptiness and thusness, but then turns gradually more trite as we approach the end. the text is broken off like poety but then still saturated with words. instead of creating a lyrical experience, the tone is often more just one of broken prose.
and the enlightened content becomes more and more dim the further one gets into the book.
