Spirited Quotes from the Mystics: Meister Eckhart

Beneath the Layers Your True Self Lies
(Art & Photo by Maggie Begley)

“A human being has so many skins inside,

covering the depths of the heart.

We know so many things, but we don’t know ourselves! Why, 30 or 40 skins or hides, as thick & hard as an ox’s or bear’s, cover the soul.

Go into your own ground & learn

to know yourself there.

Meister Eckhart, (c. 1260 – c. 1328), German Theologian, Philosopher & Mystic
