This video brings some clarity to the often conflicting views that ‘intense effort and desire is often required to achieve enlightenment’ and ‘any effort will only get in the way of achieving enlightenment’.
While the video does bring clarity to the often contradictory views, Eckhart does not mention in this video the importance of first having the necessary clarity and state of mind to even be able to directly realise your innate perfection in the first place. Dispelling the ‘cloudiness of one’s mental ego’ that is preventing this direct awareness, is still a necessary step which for many people will require initial effort, contemplation and time.
