Knowing God

If the soul could have known God without the world, the world would never have been created.

– Meister Eckhart

And what a delightful world with the gold finch in it!

Happy Thanksgiving

I have used these words before on this blog, and I still can think of none better than those of our Dominican mystic Meister Eckhart:

If the only prayer you pray in your life is thank you, it will be enough.

Thank you from River Forest, Illinois

Where Is God?

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

Meister Eckhart on Sight

On this 4th Sunday of Lent, we read how Jesus heals the man who had been born blind. So this week we will reflect on sight.

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.

― Meister Eckhart, Sermons of Meister Eckhart

What is Your Image of God?

Some people want to see God with their eyes as they see a cow, and to love [God] as they love their cow – for the milk and cheese and profit it brings them. This is how it is with people who love God for the sake of outward wealth or inward comfort. They do not rightly love God, when they love [God] for their own advantage. Indeed, I tell you the truth, any object you have in your mind. however good, will be a barrier between you and the inmost Truth.

Learning about God from God’s Creatures

Anyone who truly knows creatures may be excused from listening sermons for every creature is full of God, and is a book about God.

– the Dominican mystic, Meister Eckhart
