What Meister Eckhart Said


·         If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough. 
·         Do exactly what you would do if you felt most secure. 
·         All God wants of man is a peaceful heart. 
·         He who would be serene and pure needs but one thing, detachment. 
·         Every creature is a word of God. 
·         God expects but one thing of you, and that is that you should come out of yourself in so far as you are a created being made and let God be God in you. 
·         God is at home, it's we who have gone out for a walk. 
·         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. 
·         Only the hand that erases can write the true thing. 
·         The eye with which I see God is the same eye with which God sees me. 
·         The more we have the less we own. 
·         The outward man is the swinging door; the inner man is the still hinge. 
·         The outward work will never be puny if the inward work is great. 
·         The price of inaction is far greater than the cost of making a mistake. 
·         To be full of things is to be empty of God. To be empty of things is to be full of God. 
·         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. 
·         What a man takes in by contemplation, that he pours out in love. 
·         What we plant in the soil of contemplation, we shall reap in the harvest of action. 
·         When you are thwarted, it is your own attitude that is out of order. 
·         Words derive their power from the original word. 
·         You may call God love, you may call God goodness. But the best name for God is compassion.
