With a smile John Eudes said, “Take this as a koan: ‘I am the glory of God.’ Make that thought the center of your meditation so that it slowly becomes not only a thought but a living reality. You are the place where God chose to dwell, you are the topos tou theou (God’s place) and the spiritual life is nothing more or less than to allow that space to exist where God can dwell, to create the space where his glory can manifest itself. In your meditation you can ask yourself, ‘Where is the glory of God? If the glory of God is not there where I am, where else can it be?’ “
"Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own." I Corinthians 6: 19 (NIV)
