The most important task in life is to live it to the full. Our potential for creativity is to respond fully to the gift of our existence. This means to respond at the point of our origination within the spirit of God. (John Main, Door to Silence)
Meister Eckhart calls this ‘point of origination’ the ‘divine spark’ present in our deepest, most mysterious centre. Metanoia is the path to uncovering it. It draws us into the kind of paradox that unremade minds find terrifying but that to the clear mind is exciting. We let go, until there is nothing more to let go of; then we find not only everything we have lost but everything it was ever part of.
