Eckhart de Hochheim , más conocido como Maestro Eckhart fue un dominico alemán, conocido por su obra como teólogo y filósofo y por sus escritos que dieron forma a una especie de misticismo especulativo, que más tarde sería conocido como mística renana. Es llamado Meister en reconocimiento a los títulos académicos obtenidos durante su estancia en la Universidad de París. Fue maestro de teología en París en diversos períodos y ocupó varios cargos de gobierno en su Orden, mostrándose especialmente eficiente en su asistencia espiritual a la rama femenina dominica.

Fue el primer teólogo de la Universidad de París en ser sometido a un proceso por sospecha de herejía.[1]​ Condenadas algunas proposiciones de su obra por Juan XXII, fue rehabilitado por la Congregación para la Doctrina de la Fe en 1992.

„The eye with which I see God is the same with which God sees me. My eye and God's eye is one eye, and one sight, and one knowledge, and one love.“

— Meister Eckhart, Sermons of Meister Eckhart
Context: The man who abides in the will of God wills nothing else than what God is, and what He wills. If he were ill he would not wish to be well. If he really abides in God's will, all pain is to him a joy, all complication, simple: yea, even the pains of hell would be a joy to him. He is free and gone out from himself, and from all that he receives, he must be free. If my eye is to discern colour, it must itself be free from all colour. The eye with which I see God is the same with which God sees me. My eye and God's eye is one eye, and one sight, and one knowledge, and one love. Sermon IV : True Hearing

„To the quiet mind all things are possible.“

— Meister Eckhart
Context: The most powerful prayer, one wellnigh omnipotent, and the worthiest work of all is the outcome of a quiet mind. The quieter it is the more powerful, the worthier, the deeper, the more telling and more perfect the prayer is. To the quiet mind all things are possible. What is a quiet mind? A quiet mind is one which nothing weighs on, nothing worries, which, free from ties and from all self-seeking, is wholly merged into the will of God and dead to its own. As translated in A Dazzling Darkness: An Anthology of Western Mysticism (1985) by Patrick Grant

„All true morality, inward and outward, is comprehended in love, for love is the foundation of all the commandments.“

— Meister Eckhart
Context: All true morality, inward and outward, is comprehended in love, for love is the foundation of all the commandments. All outward morality must be built upon this basis, not on self-interest. As long as man loves something else than God, or outside God, he is not free, because he has not love. Therefore there is no inner freedom which does not manifest itself in works of love. True freedom is the government of nature in and outside man through God; freedom is essential existence unaffected by creatures. But love often begins with fear; fear is the approach to love: fear is like the awl which draws the shoemaker's thread through the leather. Sermon VII : Outward and Inward Morality

„The aim of man is beyond the temporal — in the serene region of the everlasting Present.“

— Meister Eckhart
Context: The moral task of man is a process of spiritualization. All creatures are go-betweens, and we are placed in time that by diligence in spiritual business we may grow liker and nearer to God. The aim of man is beyond the temporal — in the serene region of the everlasting Present. Sermon VII : Outward and Inward Morality

„Grace is from God, and works in the depth of the soul whose powers it employs. It is a light which issues forth to do service under the guidance of the Spirit.“

— Meister Eckhart
Context: Grace is from God, and works in the depth of the soul whose powers it employs. It is a light which issues forth to do service under the guidance of the Spirit. The Divine Light permeates the soul, and lifts it above the turmoil of temporal things to rest in God. The soul cannot progress except with the light which God has given it as a nuptial gift; love works the likeness of God into the soul. The peace, freedom and blessedness of all souls consist in their abiding in God's will. Towards this union with God for which it is created the soul strives perpetually. Sermon VII : Outward and Inward Morality

„Nothing is sharper than suffering, nothing is sweeter than to have suffered.“

— Meister Eckhart
Context: Sanctification is the best of all things, for it cleanses the soul, and illuminates the conscience, and kindles the heart, and wakens the spirit, and girds up the loins, and glorifies virtue and separates us from creatures, and unites us with God. The quickest means to bring us to perfection is suffering; none enjoy everlasting blessedness more than those who share with Christ the bitterest pangs. Nothing is sharper than suffering, nothing is sweeter than to have suffered. The surest foundation in which this perfection may rest is humility; whatever here crawls in the deepest abjectness, that the Spirit lifts to the very heights of God, for love brings suffering and suffering brings love. Sermon VI : Sanctification

„Now rejoice, all ye powers of my soul, that you are so united with God that no one may separate you from Him.“

— Meister Eckhart
Context: Now rejoice, all ye powers of my soul, that you are so united with God that no one may separate you from Him. I cannot fully praise nor love Him therefore must I die, and cast myself into the divine void, till I rise from non-existence to existence. Sermon V : The Self-Communication of God

„When God has sent his angel to me, then I know of a surety. ... When God sends his angel to the soul it becomes the one who knows for sure.“

— Meister Eckhart
Context: When God has sent his angel to me, then I know of a surety.... When God sends his angel to the soul it becomes the one who knows for sure. Not for nothing did God give the keys into St. Peter's keeping, for Peter stands for knowledge, and knowledge is the key that unlocks the door, presses forward and breaks in, to discover God as he is. Sermon 9, as translated in The Reading and Preaching of the Scriptures in the Worship of the Christian Church (1999) by Hughes Oliphant Old, Ch. 9: The German Mystics, p. 448

„He knows God rightly who knows Him everywhere.“

— Meister Eckhart
Context: 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. Sermon II : The Nearness of the Kingdom
