Meister Eckhart

Meister Eckhart was a 13th-century German theologian, philosopher, and mystic who had many profound and inspiring sayings. Here are some of his quotes that I found from the web:

“The most important hour is always the present. The most significant person is precisely the one sitting across from you right now. The most necessary work is always love.”1
“If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.”2
“There is a huge silence inside each of us that beckons us into itself, and the recovery of our own silence can begin to teach us the language of heaven.”2
“The eye through which I see God is the same eye through which God sees me; my eye and God’s eye are one eye, one seeing, one knowing, one love.”2
“And suddenly you know: It’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.”2
“The soul does not grow by addition but by subtraction.”2
“Apprehend God in all things, for God is in all things. Every single creature is full of God and is a book about God. Every creature is a word of God.”2
“God wants nothing of you but the gift of a peaceful heart.”3
“To the quiet mind all things are possible. A quiet mind is one which nothing weighs on, nothing worries, which, free from ties and from all self-seeking, is wholly merged into the will of God and dead to its own.”
