Meister Eckhart on "God" Here are some of my favorite quotes fromMeister Eckhart (c.1260?c.1328, German mystic):"God is exempt from all things and he isall things.""He who thinks that he sees God, if hesee aught sees naught of God.""I do not find God outside myself norconceive him excepting as my own and in me.""If I were not, God would not be God.""All creatures are pure nothingness. Ido not say they are small orpetty: they are pure nothingness.""The being [of things] is God.""The being and the nature of God aremine. . . . the spark in the soul is beyondtime and space; the soul'slight is uncreated and cannot be created, ittakes possession of God with no mediation; thecore of the soul and the core of God are one.""Why I pray God to rid me of God is becauseconditionless being is above God and abovedistinction.""God works, the Godhead does no work."-------------------------------------------------[Short biographical sketch of Eckhart at: ]Do the IDEAS given in these quotes by Eckhart relate to what is written about "God" in THESECRET DOCTRINE and THE MAHATMA LETTERS?If so,how?Danielhttp://hpb.ccDaniel
