I posted this in GSB too!

I love how Christ puts things, these are good to look at every now and then, im putting Christ's beatitudes, along with Sylvia's 2 cents and explanations on the beatitudes, taken from "The Mystical Life of Jesus".


Blessed are ye poor, for yours is the Kingdom of God. I feel any person reading this can see it isn't just for the poor, but it is also for those who are not so obsessed with worldly objects that take them away from their God center.)

Blessed are ye that hunger now: for you shall be filled. (Spiritually as well as physically.)

Blessed are ye that weep now: for you shall laugh. (All things pass and even if this life is hard, the Otherside is joy.)

Blessed shall you be when men shall hate you, and when they shall seperate you, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake. (He is talking to us, but also almost to himself, because if you work in truth with God. . . who can really hurt you?)

Be glad in that day and rejoice; for behold, your reward is great in heaven. For according to these things did their fathers to the prophets. (Again, it doesn't matter . . . you have to go with your own God and the love of God.)

But woe to you that are rich: for you have your consolation.(This doesn't mean you can't have wealth, just don't let it consume you and block your spirituality.)

Woe to you that are filled: for you shall hunger. (You never want to stop learning.) Woe to you that now laugh: for you shall mourn and weep. (This seems negative, but he is trying to show how fast life changes and we must know there is good and bad.)

Woe to you when men shall bless you: for according to these things did their fathers to false prophets. (Be careful of your ego. Keep yourself in check and don't get caught up in your own feeling of your holiness.)

But i say to you that hear: Love your enemies, do good to them that hate you. (Hate breeds hate, which is negative and can lead to evil. He also is going against the Old Testament axiom of "an eye for an eye . . .")

Bless them that curse you, and pray for them that calumniate (slander) you. (Do not fall into the trap of doing like for like when it is for negativity draws negativity.)

And to him that striketh thee on the one cheek, offer also the other. And him that taketh away from thee thy cloak, forbid not to take thy coat also.[i] ( Violence breeds violence and we also see here the passive influences of his studies in the Far East.)

Give to every one that asketh thee, and of him that taketh away thy goods, ask them not again. (To give to one who asks is divine, but be careful of what you ask for.)

And as you would that men should do to you, do you also to them in like manner. (The golden rule.)

And if you love them that love you, what thanks are to you? For sinners also love those that love them.

And if you do good to them who do good to you, what thanks are to you? For sinners also do this.

And if you lend to them of whom you hope to receive, what thanks are to you? For sinners also lend to sinners, for to receive as much.

(All of the above three axioms are saying basically the same thing: to give of yourself without thought of reward is divine, but to give of yourself with a thought of getting something in return is not.)

But love ye your enemies: do good, and lend, hoping for nothing thereby: and your reward shall be great, and you shall be the sons of the highest( Or daughters ) ; for He is kind to the unthankful, and to the evil. Do good works without thought of reward and also treat others with kindness. Also note here that again he brings out a merciful and forgiving God who still loves and treats with kindness the unthankful and the evil.)

Be there for merciful, as your Father is merciful. (Try to be as loving, kind and merciful as God.)

Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you shall be forgiven. (This is my personal favorite and I really wish that more so-called "Christains" would have this branded on their soul. A true Christian would never say, "If you are not saved by the blood of Jesus Christ, you will be damned to hell," for it is not only judge mental but condemning. If you ever hear a preacher, evangelist or priest say this . . . run, for they truly do not understand the meaning of Christ's teachings.)

Give, and it shall be given to you: good measure and pressed down and shaken together and running over shall they give into your bosom. For with the same measure that you shall mete withal, it shall be measure to you again. (Simply, this means that what you give out, whether positive or negative, you will get in return.)

Can the blind lead the blind? Do they not both fall into the ditch?(Think for yourself; if you follow someone blindly and that person is blind to the truth, you become like them.)

The disciple is not above his master: but everyone shall be perfect, if he be as his master. (None of us are above God, but in striving to be like God we are all perfect before God, no matter what faith or religion we practice.)

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. (Poor, meaning without complexity and dogma and just simplistically loving God.)

Blessed are the meek; for they shall possess the land.( This I have always known was tongue-in-cheek. If you are too meek and mild, all you'll get is this world, so stand up for your beliefs.)

Blessed are they that mourn; for they shall be comforted. (All of us die, but we all come to the knowledge that we will all be together on the Other side.)

Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after justice: for they shall have their fill. (If you look to be fair and righteous, no matter how long you have to wait you'll come back on top.)

Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. (It doesn't always happen right away, but karma works in a positive manner also.)

Blessed are the clean of heart: for they shall see God. (We all will see God on the Other Side after each of our journeys of life after life.)

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. (There is so much dissension in this world and if you try to keep peace you are stretching your soul to greater spirituality.)

Blessed are they that suffer persecution for justice' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. (You can almost see his passive spiritual training in India, as so many of the Beatitudes seem to be karmically driven. Always remember that no matter how much injustice you suffer in life, God always knows what the truth really is.)

Blessed are ye when they shall revile you, and persecute you, and speak all that is evil against you, untruly, for my sake: Be glad and rejoice, for your reward is very great in heaven. For so they persecuted the prophets that were before you. (I know many interpret this to mean persecution for believing in Christ; but I like to interpret it as persecution for believing in truth, which Christ was a symbol for. It also reads a lot like my life . . . with my critics and detracters; for later on Christ says not to hide your light under a bushel and to let your light shine before men. Well . . . I think I'm trying to do that, and I know after I die I will be going to the Other Side, just as all of you are.)

Jesus's commandment was this:
Love God, love one another and youself as I loved you!
This is written in the Bible in the New testiment, Luke and John.

Sami, I found this, that I had made a while back, and I couldn't remember making it! But, anyway, I thought I'd post it on here to share with everyone!
