A Quote by Meister Eckhart on awareness, church, god, lies, prayer, quiet, and present

A man may go into the field and say his prayer and be aware of God, or he may be in Church and be aware of God; but if he is more aware of Him because he is in a quiet place, that is his own deficiency and not due to God, Who is alike present in all things and places, and is willing to give Himself everywhere so far as lies in Him... He knows God rightly who knows Him everywhere.

A Quote by Meister Eckhart on divinity, kindness, power, sacred, sleep, and work

The kind of work we do does not make us holy, but we can make it holy. However "sacred" a calling may be, as it is a calling, it has no power to sanctify; but rather as we are and have the divine being within, we bless each task we do, be it eating, or sleeping, or watching, or any other.

A Quote by Meister Eckhart on destruction, nature, and soul

Therefore, if you want to discover nature's nakedness, you must destroy its symbols, and the farther you get in the nearer you come to its essense. When you come to theOne that gathers all things up into itself, there your soul must stay.
