Meister Eckhart quotes

Meister Eckhart
The soul at its highest is found like God, but an angel gives a closer idea of Him. That is all an angel is: an idea of God.

Meister Eckhart
To be sure, our mental processes often go wrong, so that we imagine God to have gone away. What should be done then? Do exactly what you would do if you felt most secure. Learn to behave thus even in deepest distress and keep yourself that way in any and every estate of life. I can give you no better advice than to find God where you lost him.

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

Meister Eckhart
Jesus might have said, I became man for you. If you do not become God for me, you wrong me.

Meister Eckhart
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.

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
Man goes far away or near but God never goes far-off he is always standing close at hand, and even if he cannot stay within he goes no further than the door.

Meister Eckhart
Know that when you seek anything of your own, you will never find God, because you do not seek God purely. You are seeking something along with God, and you are acting just as if you were to make a candle out of God in order to look for something with it. Once one finds the things one is looking for, one throws the candle away. This is what you are doing.
