The seed of God is in us. If the seed had a good, wise and industrious cultivator, it would thrive all the more an grow up to God whose seed it is, and the fruit would be equal to the nature of God. Now the seed of a pear trees grows into a pear tree, a hazel seed into a hazel tree, and the seed of God into God.
If the seal is pressed completely through the wax so that no wax remains without being impressed by the seal, then it becomes indistinguishably one with the seal. Similarly the soul becomes completely united with God.
— Meister Eckhart
