A free mind untroubled and unfettered by anything but God's most precious will.

"A free mind is one which is untroubled and unfettered by anything which has not bound its best part to any particular manner of being or worship and which does not seek its own interest in anything but is always immersed in Gods most precious will.... There is no work which men and women can perform, however small, which does not draw from this its power and strength."

Meister Eckhart

Editor's note:

Meister Eckhart is regarded, in our contemporary times, as one of Christianity's most important mystics. Eckhart, in this quote, encourages us to move off the path of the ego onto the path of God, to move from conditional love to Unconditional Love which is the doctrine of Unitarian Universalism.

Meister Eckhart, way before Unitarian Universalists covenanted together to affirm and promote seven principles, encourages the free and responsible search for Truth and meaning which Eckhart tells us draws its power and strength from the Will of God or what some call the Tao, the Spirit of Life, Higher Power, etc.
