God’s Eye by Meister Eckhart


“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.”

“Only the hand that erases can write the true thing.”

“Nothing in all creation is so like God as stillness.”

“And suddenly you know: It’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.”

“Wisdom consists in doing the next think you have to do, doing it with your whole heart, and finding delight in doing it.”

“If I had a friend and loved him because of the benefits which this brought me and because of getting my own way, then it would not be my friend that I loved but myself. I should love my friend on account of his own goodness and virtues and account of all that he is in himself. Only if I love my friend in this way do I love him properly.”

― Meister Eckhart
