"I'm giving him a Useful Pot to Keep Things in."
"Somebody has been keeping honey in it,"said Owl.
"You can keep anything in it,"said Pooh earnestly. "It's Very useful like that." A.A. Milne, "Winnie The Pooh"
No one can imagine the solitude which reigns in this wilderness, no-one at all. No thought can enter here, not a word of all the learned treatises on the Holy Trinity with which people busy themselves so much. Not a single word. So inward is it, so infinitely remote, and so untouched by time and space. This ground is simple and without differentiation, and when one enters here, it will seem as if one has been here from all eternity, and as if united to God, be it only for an instant. This experience sheds light and bears witness that man was everlasting in God, before his creation in time. When he was in Him, he was God in God. Tauler
The Godhead is poor, naked and empty as though it were not; it has not, wills not, wants not, works not, gets not. It is God who has the treasure and the bride in him, the Godhead is as void as though it were not. Meister Eckhart
No created light can touch this ground and illumine it, for it is truly God's home and dwelling-place. The whole of creation would not fill or plumb this void, nothing created could ever penetrate it or fulfil its yearnings. God alone can fill it with His divine immensity. This abyss of the soul belongs to the divine abyss, to nothing else. Tauler
