Meister Eckhart Quote – “The shell must be cracked apart…”

The shell must be cracked apart if what is in it is to come out, for if you want the kernel you must break the shell. And therefore if you want to discover nature’s nakedness you must destroy its symbols, and the farther you get in the nearer you come to its essence. When you come to the One that gathers all things up into itself, there you must stay.

Meister Eckhart (circa 1260 – 1328)
