In the third meditation, we consider that we are all of our ancestors and all of the offspring yet to be born. Again each of us is a wave in a greater ocean. My mother, my father, they are in me as I was in them.

The fourth meditation is on our beloved, while the fifth is on finding loving kindness and compassion for one whom we feel is our enemy. We embrace the enemy and feel that we are the enemy and the enemy is us.

When we are the ocean, there is no death, no disease. In this state healing has already happened because illness never was.

Tiffany gave this quote to me during the week that she died. It was Eckhart's sermon on his concept of breakthrough, so important for his spirituality. It was also Tiffany's way, perhaps, of telling me she was ready to breakthrough, to achieve that greater union with God. She found what really mattered to her the sacred:

"In the breakthrough ..., where I stand free of my own will and of the will of God and of all his works and of God himself, there I am, above all creatures and am neither God nor creature. Rather, I am what I was and what I shall remain now and forever. Then I receive an impulse which shall bring me above all the angels. In this impulse I receive wealth so vast that God cannot be enough for me in all that makes him God, and with all his divine works. In this breakthrough I discover that I and God are one. There I am what I was, and I grow neither smaller nor bigger, for there I am an immovable cause that moves all things. Here, then, God finds no place in people, for people achieve with this poverty what they were in eternity and will remain forever. Here God is one with the spirit, and that is the strictest poverty one can find."
