Study the Stone
by Meister Eckhart

Be yourself. And if what this means
is unclear to you, look around at

the things of this earth. Study the stone
which always does what it was made

to do: it doesn't always fall in the
same way, sometimes resting in high

places and at other times finding its
rest where the earth allows it to lie,

but its purpose is to move downward,
and in this the stone loves God in the 

way it can, singing the new song
which God gives each creature and thing--

and also you who read this at times
wonder what to do and how to be.

You can find this poem in Meister Eckhart's Book of the Heart: Meditations for the Restless Soul.
