QuotationThanks for your nice letter. I will give you what help I can. First of all, I have read Markings with great interest and sympathy. One of the greatest bonds between myself and Dag H. is a common interest in Meister Eckhart whom he quotes very frequently. I do not quote Eckhart as much but I use others of the same school, like Tauler, and I get the same sort of material from St. John of the Cross. In my latest book, Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander which you can probably get from your library, you may find other material similar to his. I would also suggest Seeds of Contemplation and the new edition of same, New Seeds.
