The 8 Attitudes, taught be Jesus, interpreted by myself…
-Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Be grateful always. Share and give in trust, for I Am always provided for. To be poor in spirit is to manage and invest in resources wisely and not to hold on too tightly to any ideas, resources or people. A poor man of spirit gives what he cans, the means often are creative and from the heart…
-Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
We often fall for the dream of illusion and fear over the unity of oneness and love. When we feel guilty, ashamed and afraid, we act in ways that are not aligned with natural law and this feeds more guilt, shame and fear. To mourn is to acknowledge this in humility to God; for when we forgive ourselves, the light of God enters.
-Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are the simple-minded, who strive for simplicity, peace and harmony with nature, with natural law. They will be blessed with abundance and resources. Those who call and respect the earth, whom do not hoard but generously share wisdom and love will be living examples of the second coming of heaven on earth.
-Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
They shall be blessed with wisdom and a great deal of gifts that will help them fulfill their divine purpose. They who seek to know the laws and align with them will be guided because they are open and focused on knowing themselves.
-Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
When we forgive and accept one another, we free the parts of ourselves that are frozen and full of judgment, shame, guilt and fear.
-Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
When we are honest with ourselves and another, and when we work to heal our past through forgiving and accepting, we become more pure of heart. When we are aware and choose oneness over reacting out of guilt, shame and fear, it releases burdens, which makes it easier to be present. This makes it easier to see Essence, the divine nature in all beings.
-Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
God is peaceful and seeks refuge in those that match its energy. God is attracted to those that strive for unconditional love.
-Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Those that strive toward unconditional love face challenges/resistance from many sides. Rigid beliefs and God-fearing “others” oppose those that believe in the ability to be One with God, to stand for justice and peace in the face of persecution, guilt, shame and fear. Bless them for their courage inspires people.
