Meister Eckhart quotes | on God

“God is at home; it is we who have gone for a walk.”

“No-one knows what the soul is.. But what we do know is, the soul is where God works compassion.”

“You may call God love, you may call God goodness. But the best name for God is compassion.”

“Every creature is a word of God”

“Whoever possesses God in their being, has Him in a divine manner, and He shines out to them in all things; for them all things taste of God and in all things it is God's image that they see.”

“To be full of things is to be empty of God. To be empty of things is to be full of God.”

“God is in all things, but so far as God is Divine and so far as He is rational, God is nowhere so properly as in the soul - in the innermost of the soul”

“If God gave the soul His whole creation she would not be filled thereby but only with Himself.”

:: Johannes Eckhart O.P. (1260–1328), also known as Eckhart von Hochheim and widely referred to as Meister Eckhart, a German theologian, philosopher and mystic, born near Erfurt, in Thuringia.
