I Remember Now ~ Ripened By Life ~ Pastor Tim Tengblad Post 59
Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. Matthew 5:7
Tubwayhun lamrahmana delayhun nehwun rahme
”Blessed who from their inner womb, birth mercy; for they shall feel its warm arms embrace them. Aligned with the One are the compassionate; upon them shall be compassion. Tuned to the Source are those who shine from the deepest place in their bodies. Upon them shall be the rays of universal Love.
Neil Douglas-Klotz “Prayers of the Cosmos.”
The Aramaic speaks for itself with this one. Just sit with it for a while. Let it do its work on you. Listen for what stirs within you.
We all know what stirs within us when we are so blessed to receive genuine mercy from someone. Mercy you know comes from deep within their heart. When we are such mercy, do you feel its warm embrace?
Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude you, revile and defame you on account of the Son of Man. Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, for your reward is great in heaven, for that is what their ancestors did to the prophets.
Tubwaykon ma dahasneyn wa meperasheyn L’khon wa meperasheyn l’khon wa mephageyn Shemkhon yak biasha hella-h bar d’narsha.
It is blessedly ripe, just the right thing to discover your true purpose, when people see you in a bad light, when people single you out for abuse, because of the wounds they have felt inside. All this happens because they see in you someone who is trying to fulfill the divine image, who lives according to their real purpose.”
Neil Douglas-Klotz “Blessings Of The Cosmos: Wisdom Of The Heart From The Aramaic Words Of Jesus
Blessed and ripe is the one who has the courage to live their Truth. What they know in their heart is their purpose. No matter the cost.
The person Jesus raises up in this beatitude is one that is solely led by their inner voice and knowing. One that is rooted in the One. “I just know this is why I am here,” they say, “And I have to do it.” They are not dependent on how anyone sees them for their well being.
The deep commitment they feel from both knowing their Truth and living it, is more than enough to sustain them. They know a clarity and purpose that is far greater than any human approval. And when a price is paid for their fidelity to their inner Truth and to the One, “It was more than worth it” is the only response.
The one who criticizes such a ripened soul only wishes they had the same courage and clear determination. And they actually do. It is in them, otherwise they wouldn’t be bothered by someone who lives their Truth.
The Aramaic Beatitudes help us remember. They help us remember that we are Love in our essence. Because of our inherent Oneness with the One, there is a strength within us that is both ours and not ours.
Thanks be to the One. And thanks to Neil Douglas-Klotz for the interpretations he offers in his books. I’d heartily suggest reading them and taking a further look.
You are Love!
