Meister Eckhart and God

God is at home, it's we who have gone out for a walk. - Meister Eckhart

The knower and the known are one... God and I, we are one in knowledge - Meister Eckhart

You may call God love, you may call God goodness. But the best name for God is compassion. - Meister Eckhart

Words derive their power from the original word. - Meister Eckhart

What we plant in the soil of contemplation, we shall reap in the harvest of action. - Meister Eckhart

What a man takes in by contemplation, that he pours out in love. - Meister Eckhart

Truly, it is in darkness that one finds the light, so when we are in sorrow, then this light is nearest of all to us. - Meister Eckhart

To be full of things is to be empty of God. To be empty of things is to be full of God. - Meister Eckhart

The outward man is the swinging door; the inner man is the still hinge. - Meister Eckhart

The eye with which I see God is the same eye with which God sees me. - Meister Eckhart

Every creature is a word of God. - Meister Eckhart

There exists only the present instant... a Now which always and without end is itself new. - Meister Eckhart
