The Womb of Contemplative Meditation Practice Giving Birth to the Realization of the Soul
“When you give birth to the one within you, that one will save you.” (Yeshua, Gospel of Thomas, from Saying 70, translation: A New New Testament, Hal Taussig)
The Syriac Mystic Martyrius:
Happy is that person of love who has caused God, who is love, to dwell in his heart.
Happy are you, O heart, so small and confined, yet you have caused him whom heaven and earth cannot contain to dwell spiritually in your womb, as in a restful abode.
Happy that luminous eye of the heart which, in its purity, clearly beholds him before whose sight the seraphs veil their face…
Blessed indeed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God…
Blessed are you, O heart that is luminous, the abode of the Divinity;
Blessed are you, heart that is pure, which beholds the hidden Being.
(Martyrius, The Syriac Fathers on Prayer and the Spiritual Life)
