Even in the last years Meister Eckhart became increasingly popular especially by these people who are interested in Zen Buddhism and mysticism. Meister Eckhart establishes ties between a Trinitarian God who has revealed himself in Jesus Christ and a God, who is nameless, and who has more similarity with a nude, abstract being which Meister Eckhart calls divinity (“Gottheit” or “Übergott”). But that already said too much. Too much thought in terms and definitions. And these are the actual difficulties to understand the texts of Meister Eckhart. Similar difficulties you also have when you e.g. read texts by Nisargadatta Maharaj, a modern mystic influenced by Vedanta Yoga. The texts describe rather a spiritual and mystical experience, which you have to live and not to read to understand them. A vers to vers interpretation (exegesis) is little helpful. One has to be similar to the being of the author - an intellectual understanding may be a first step but not more.
