Inheriting the Good Earth
“Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth” (Matthew 5:5).
Those who are ‘meek’ are those who are inward, aware of their own inwardness and the inwardness of all things, and aware of the shared Holy Breath that is the life, the existence of all things; living from within, in the communion of the Holy Breath - Holy Spirit, they are gentle, humble of heart, their heart being open, spacious, having room for all things, the entire nature sphere and creation, and so indeed they ‘inherit the earth.’
Essentially, they are aware of the reality of their existence, and the existence of all things, as completely interconnected and interdependent, and they are aware of the unity of all things in the Oneness of God, inseparable from God. Therefore they live in harmony with the flows of life, including the ebbs, and they carry a resonant vibration in consciousness, being, so that they may experience a deep and intimate communion with nature and creatures as a direct manifestation of the Divine Presence, and so are able to behold all natural things as signs of God Most High, and perceive God in all things. This is ‘inheriting the earth,’ and experience well known to mystics and gnostics.
“Earth” here may be read as Aretz from Hebrew, which is this world, but specifically this world as it is in God, this world as it is in birthing the Messiah - the Perfect Human Being; the ‘earth’ here being the goodness in creation, and the delight of the glory of God in it and presence of God, pervading it.
Understanding this, this is a wonderful blessing, truly so!
This is a word of the Spirit I was inclined to share this afternoon.
May God bless us with this experience of the Life Divine in this world, and so its fruition in the World-To-Come! Amen.
