Meister Eckhart

***************

He who would be pure
must be transformed by the light
of a thousand books

***************

When God called at home
I had gone out for a walk . . .
Thwarted by action!

***************

A serene person
needs but one thing: the thick hide
of a simple ox

***************

I am secure in
the knowledge that God cannot
see my puny soul

***************

He who has mastered
detachment is the hinge on
the door of sorrow

***************

Contemplation of
the Eternal Birth will plant
you in the hard ground

***************

There exists only
yesterday—tomorrow was
many years ago

***************

God expects but one
thing of you—thank Him that you
know not what it is

***************

A thousand years hence
the eye of creation will
see only darkness

***************

The knower is a
creature whose heart is empty
of all compassion

***************
