Invincible Summer

In this podcast, Eckhart talks to a live audience in Hawaii. He ponders the paradise surrounding them: the sun, the palm trees and the sea. He then quotes famous French philosopher, Albert Camus, who said: In the midst of winter, I found there was within me, an invincible summer. Eckhart explains that Camus is referring to the spiritual dimension or what he calls ‘the alive inner peace at the core of our being.’ Eckhart says it’s inevitable that life’s hardships will pull us off center and dark thoughts about the past or the future will divide us from the light of consciousness. Eckhart explains if we learn to push past the darkness, returning to our inner refuge again and again, it will become a practice. Eckhart believes this is what having a spiritual life is all about.
