Pure in Heart

Blessed are the pure in heart

for they will see God[1]

The steadfast and loyal heart is

directed by good intention,

open to opportunities.

Faith-filled perception renders one

awake, aware, and attentive

for the Beatific Vision

Enlightenment sees with God’s eyes

and clarity hears with God’s ears,

in turn the soul is grasped by God.

Reconciling thus disperses

the haze of selfish ignorance,

and shimmers with selfless kindness.

Blessed are the good-intentioned

for they will enjoy divine company


[1] Matthew 5: 8

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
