Blessed are the poor in spirit
for theirs is the kingdom of God
Conventional wisdom suggests
poor in spirit is humbleness –
It’s accepting powerlessness…
life is not what’s in it for me
and love is non-competitive.
It’s receptive to the spirit…
selflessness is untouched by sin
and resistant to all judgment.
It’s openness to God’s presence…
communion submits to guidance
and enjoys possibilities.
Those who follow attentively
will be accompanied by God.
 Matthew 5: 3

smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart.
I recommend pleasant. You may quote me."
Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
