Meister Eckhart

What is this darkness?

What is this darkness? What is its name? Call it: an aptitude for sensitivity. Call it: a rich sensitivity which will make you whole. Call it: your potential for vulnerability.

~ Meister Eckhart

It is the nature of a word to reveal what is hidden

It is the nature of a word to reveal what is hidden. The word that is hidden still sparkles in the darkness and whispers in the silence. It entices us to pursue it and to yearn and sigh after it. For it wishes to reveal to us something about God.

~ Meister Eckhart

The outward work can never be small if the inward one is great

The outward work can never be small if the inward one is great, and the outward work can never be great if the inward is small or of little worth.

~ Meister Eckhart

Secretly nature seeks to ferret out God's track

Nature's intent is neither food, nor drink, nor clothing, nor comfort, nor anything else in which God is left out. Whether you like it or not, whether you know it or not, secretly nature seeks, hunts, tries to ferret out the track on which God may be found. . .

~ Meister Eckhart

For this joy is close to you

For this joy is close to you,
it is in you!
None of you has a spirit so heavy
nor an intelligence so feeble,
none of you is so far from God
not to be able to find this joy
in God.

~ Meister Eckhart

Thank you is enough

If the only prayer we say to God is "thank you,” that is enough.

~ Meister Eckhart, thanks to John Condon

No greater obstacle to God than time

Time is what keeps the light from reaching us. There is no greater obstacle to God than time.
~ Meister Eckhart

In this life we are to become heaven

In this life we are to become heaven
So that God might find a home here in us.

~ Meister Eckhart

So that love may find a home here

In this life we are to become heaven
So that Love may find a home here.

~ by Meister Eckhart

What is my name?

What is my name? What is your name?
What is God's Name?
Our name is: that we must be born.
And the Creator's name is: to bear.
The soul alone among all creatures
is generative like God is.

~ Meister Eckhart
