unspoken word

When I preach, it’s my habit to talk about detachment, saying that we should become free of ourselves and of all things. Secondly, I say that we should be formed again into that simple goodness which is God. Thirdly, I say that we should be mindful of the great nobility which God has given the soul in order that we should become wonderfully united with him. Fourthly, I speak about the purity of the divine nature, and of its radiance, which is beyond words. God is a word, an unspoken word.

Meister Eckhart (Walshe, 2008, sermon 22)
