Interesting Quote

The only thing that burns in hell
is the part of you that won't let go of your life:
Your memories, your attachments.
They burn them all away, but they're not punishing you,
they're freeing your soul.
If you're frightened of dying and you're holding on,
you'll see devils tearing your life away.
If you've made your peace,
then the devils are really angels freeing you from the earth.

Meister Eckhart.

Well, I've read about Meister Eckhart before, but I've never read his own work. Sounds like maybe that's going to be my Christmas gift to myself this year!
