THE BEATITUDES OF JESUS (Sermon on the Mount)

What are the Beatitudes? This section begins with the setting for the sermon on the mount, followed by the beatitudes.
The word "beatitude" is derived from the Latin "beatus," which means blessed or happy. This designation is appropriate because each teaching begins with the word "blessed."

Setting:
When Jesus saw the crowds, He went up on the mountain; and after He sat down, His disciples came to Him. He opened His mouth and began to teach them, saying...

"Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are they who mourn,
for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek,
for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they shall be satisfied.

Blessed are the merciful,
for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure of heart,
for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they shall be called children of God.

Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you"

"I just found a simpler version of the Beatitues "Thanks" to fellow iPeace member Marie Emma T

"Blessed are those who are spiritually needy. The kingdom of heaven belongs to them. Blessed are those who are sad. They will be comforted. Blessed are those who are free of pride.
They will be given the earth.
Blessed are those who are hungry and thirsty for what is right.
They will be filled.
Blessed are those who show mercy.
They will be shown mercy.
Blessed are those whose hearts are pure.
They will see God.
Blessed are those who make peace.
They will be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who suffer for doing what is right.
The kingdom of heaven belongs to them.
Blessed are you when people make fun of you and hurt you because of me. You are also blessed when they tell all kinds of evil lies about you because of me.Be joyful and glad. Your reward in heaven is great. In the same way, people hurt the prophets who lived long ago"....
Jesus Christ
"And Another" BEATITUDE by David Sparenberg

Blessed indeed are the poor and the wild things of the Earth, although pushed to the edge of existence and extinction sniffs and looks into our eyes with deadly indifference, day after day and minute by minute. For the wretched of the Earth and the wild are made homeless in common. And without habitation, multitudes are driven by the betrayal of greed into the abomination of desolation.

Yet One there is who watches. And after much suffering, the scales out of balance shall rise with a mighty ringing. And justice will abide everywhere. For there is no mending but by preserving unity through diversity; no healing but in the bestowal of dignity. And there is no salvation, except by the wayside, in the ghettos of the forgotten, where the vulnerable await the unfulfilled promises of welcoming love.

Blessed indeed are the peacemakers. For such shall teach and lead us out of the terror and confusion of deception and destruction, and away from the wars of men against men, and the warring of men on nature. But the day of peace will come with the dismantling of walls and the dissolving of boundaries and borders. And the gentle and visionary—whose palms are as their souls, and both are without bloodstain—will surely show us the shade of a life-bearing tree and seat us among lions and lambs. And we will come to share of who we are in harmony and without hatred.

Blessed indeed are the innocent and pure of heart. And those who time cannot stoop and wither into bitterness; and who are not skillful with the wiles of shallowness and success, but for whom both prairie stars and daybreak star remain embracing miracles. And for whom the pattern of a spider's web in autumn garden is a form of scripture. And for whom a cloud of yellow pollen blown over the desert in springtime is a breath of mystery. And for whom the soaring flight of an eagle is the utterance of a holy word.

For all such are of the Kingdom of God and are beloved of creation, even as children are loved in the eyes of elders.

Blessed indeed are those among us today and tomorrow who walk the good talk and who are Earth-walkers. For such have seen with the eyes of the soul and know in the knowledge of experience that soul-seeing is truth. And this truth is simple and belongs to life.

Blessed indeed are those disciplined and profound with silence, and respectful in their measured words. In the chaos of upheaval and in the ordeals of betrayal, still they value honesty above profit and integrity, which bestows freedom, above possessions and enslavement to things.

Blessed indeed are the myth-singers, who have gone down into the ancient and recovered the medicine of sanity, and the storytellers and poets, and those who re-enchant us and initiate our bodies into dancing with the rhythms of the Earth.

For such celebrants give bone and living tissue to the dreams of God, but shake off disfiguring shadows and blow away, with chanting breath, the dun smoke of nightmares and misdirecting lies. For those who are deep are collectors of power. And beauty is most precious among the gifts we come giving.

Blessed indeed are you who have prayed with these words. And are pregnant now and are nurturing them inside, as words of your own. For you shall drop upon the Earth in your seasons as seeds of the Tree of Life. And the fruit that ripens from your roots shall be the food of salvation.

In those days, even angels will enter your orchards, smiling the smile of grace, and with the open hands of holy beggars. And you who are but of the Earth will feed them and satisfy the hunger of Heaven.

THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT

My friends, sisters and brothers,

To go into the silence, to call the divine source, is THE nourishment for the soul in your human body. In the silence rules the soul, which opens itself for you. In the silence do you experience the power of the source, which you can manifest in your life.
So let me show you how you will reach the source itself with the words arising from your soul.
Beloved I AM in the source, and out of the source which watches over my being, and of which you also are a part.
Beloved source, what breathes in me and breathes through me. It weaves through and illuminates everything, in your own being creating itself and living.

Sanctify my life on earth.

Establish yourself more and more in my body, so the kingdom of love gets reality on earth.
Let me find and live peace on earth, which your being expresses. Let me myself be peace.
Give me the bread and the beverage of life, which fills my heart with refreshment and do let me be free of every quarrel and anger.

Fulfill me with the power of love to ALL THAT IS and to each who meets my path, by integrating yourself more and more in myself and becoming a strong part of my life on earth.

Let me feel yourself inside me at first every morning, where my body wipes of the sleep.
Help me always to remember myself, that only the love to myself and to ALL THAT IS can lift upwards the earth to a radiating place of divinity.

Help me in all concerns to be what I am in truth.

Help me to recognize my own limitations for what they are in truth and thereby break open the chains of human limitation.

Help me to see in every human being the divinity, which is inherent in everything.

Oh, you breathing light of life, fill me and the mankind with the peace of light and help me to live myself as divine manifestation in my I AM .

I AM a pure creation by the sound of the source.

I AM the light of the source and I am opening up to her power that flows from today on through me into this world.

I AM love and perfection.

This is the one truth on earth.

If you like to be free of guilty consciences, then forgive yourself. When you forgave yourself, you can and will never again transform guilt to another human being. When you like to be free in yourself then be, love and live how and what you really are.

Be authentic and genuine. Your multidimensional soul knows what you are. She knows how you are. She knows you better as you know yourself. Therefore be as you are. Confess yourself to your being and live yourself, because you can´t fool your soul, how you would like to appear.

Go in love and sympathy through your life. Be a light for yourself, for the human beings and for the world. The kingdom of heaven and the kingdom of the source are only to find in one place : in yourself.

Blissful are the strong in spirit, they overcome the fear, strengthen the weak ones and let their divinity shine.

Blissful are those, which walk full of spiritual humility through their way of life, because they will carry out the greatness of their soul into the world. They will give the starveling to eat and the thirsty to drink from their light and love.

Blissful are those, which are poor in believing in the scriptures, because they will not accept the limitations of the world, because they are in perfect unity with their soul and know that nothing is impossible.

Be full of courage and live the sentiment of your soul, when the people deny and ridicule you or talk badly about you because of your light-full words. In all times the seers and the prophets, which saw the light of the soul, have been met with hostility and laughed at.

If this happens, don´t be angry with those, which do this to you. Raise your head full of inner divinity and look at their darkened hearts. Find the perfect and divine reflection of this human and send him the light of the source. You will know, that the reflection of the divine human being has nothing in common with this human. And when the reflection awakes, this human will also be a perfect expression of the being, like you already are.

Don´t judge about others, who walk on supposed wrong ways, because they will be awakened, when their time has come. So like you judge about others, so your soul will measure you. Therefore meet every human being with respect of the greatness of his true soul, even if he wasn´t aware of it.

Withdraw from the temptations of the outer world. Avoid bread and games for the crowd, because they will remove you from yourself. Find the joy in yourself and in all things of the world, that fill your heart with joy and love. Do practice to be moderate in everything. See to it, that joy about life fills your life in all her splendor.

Be always in the state of sympathy with all which have less and are less awakened than you. Give everyone your hand, as far as you can, and help, where your heart is telling you, that your help is needed.

Be always in that place and in that company, which will present yourself and your soul power and strength. Avoid those people, which irritate you, which deny your and their own inner light. Find those, which are a light or want to be a light for this world like you. Then go back together and illuminate the dark places of the earth with the light that radiates by you.

Give always the weak ones the strength of your inner power. Help those, which can´t help themselves, which get ridiculed, get despised and/or used of. Call this I AM of this human and ask on behalf of your next one for support. See always in everybody and in everything the perfection which is based in all that is.

You are the light of this earth. You are elected and appointed, to let your light shine in your world. Thus the earth will get a place, which shines with eternal peace of love.

Raise your head, walk royal through your life and shine. Then you will be a magnet for all, which are still looking for the light.
The scriptures gave to you the ten commandments. But I will say to you, you only need one commandment for a life in peace and joy on earth. This commandment reads :
Treat the other like you want to be treated.

When all mankind considers this commandment, then the earth is a place full of human being, you will never be able to manifest it more beautiful and more joyful.

Everything you earn and acquire in this world is transient. The only thing immortal on earth that is your soul and your experience you get. Therefore appreciate your experiences and don´t get your heart caught by the things of this world. Enjoy them and love them, but do not depend on them. Do not worry about your daily bread, as long as you walk on the way of your soul, poverty and misery will not affect you. Do fulfill the task you yourself did choose before incarnation and your multidimensional soul in the source herself will prepare your way and lead you on the ways, which grant your physical well-being.

Find and keep the divine light in your heart and look for it in every human heart you will meet.

Who gives love, will be loved.

Who grants forgiveness, receives forgiveness.

Who gives without expecting, will become enriched with the gifts of the source herself.

You will always reap what you sow, therefore watch your thoughts, your words and your actions, then this are the seeds you are sowing. Like the seed, so is the fruit.

If you notice that a human fails, do not judge. Look instead into yourself and search for the resonance inside of you. Only that is disturbing you at another one, what you refuse to believe in yourself. Release your shadows and the mirror in your next one will be clearing. Then he will only reflect your own mirror-image full of light. Look careful, where you keep rests of hostility in yourself and release them.

If you want to be a light in the world, then light yourself first. A pure heart and a clear look are the pioneers for your way home. Never again place your light under the bushel, but shine like a bright star at the nightly heaven, so that other people will find their way in the darkness.

Do not missionary work, because many human beings cling too extremely on these objects of this world. The divine energy of the source is too fine, for those people to feel. They choose a different way. A teacher of wisdom fetches the student at his spot of progress. He only gives him as much information as he is able to assimilate.

If you are lacking sometimes the necessary far-sightedness, please ask your multidimensional soul to control your words.
Knock and it will be opened for you, ask, and it will be given to you, if your intention is pure. Never has a higher being, your I AM, or the source herself, disregarded an honest request, a request that is beneficial for mankind and/or earth.

What you hope for and long for of the source, your soul, your life on earth, give those people you will meet on your way. Do give and it will be given to you, share your knowledge and it will be increasing. Radiate light and blessing throughout the world and you will be blessed.

So go and create your life on the rock of truth and the love to ALL THAT IS. Then you will be sacrosanct for every arbitrariness outsides, and your throne will radiate the shine of the source in you.

So it is !

Sananda
