Quote of the Day — Meister Eckhart

Quote of the Day — Meister Eckhart


“Apprehend God in all things,
for God is in all things.
Every single creature is full of God
and is a book about God.
If I spent enough time
with the tiniest creature —
even a caterpillar —
I would never have to prepare another sermon,
so full of God is every creature.
Meister Eckhart, O.P.

Eckhart von Hochheim, OP  (1260- 1327) was a Dominican philosopher, theologian, and mystic. Although Meister Eckhart’s teaching shaped much of the thinking of the Middle Ages, he was largely forgotten until the end of the 20th century.  The freshness and universality of his insights have created a following for him among Christians and non-Christian seekers alike.

  1. Not Eckhart Tolle, right?–but Eckhart von Hochheim. Tolle’s the 20th/21st-century writer and philosopher, known for “The Power of Now.”

  2. Thanks for catching that. I’ve fixed the post.
