Birth

God gives birth to the Son as you, as me, as each one of us. As many beings as many gods in God.

In my soul, God not only gives birth to me as his son, he gives birth to me as himself, and himself as me. I find in this divine birth that God and I are the same. I am what I was and what shall always remain, now and forever. I am transported above the highest angels; I neither decrease nor increase, for in this birth I have become the motionless cause of all that moves. I have won back what has always been mine. Here, in my own soul, the greatest of all miracles has taken place—God has returned to God!

–Meister Eckhart
