|Blissful are the Humble, in spirit,
For they are the Force of Heaven.
Blissful are the Mourners,
For they will be cheered.
Blissful are the Patient,
For they will succeed on Earth.
Blissful are the Perfectionists,
For they will be complete.
Blissful are the Compassionate,
For they will be shown compassion.
Blissful are the emotionally Pure,
For they will see God.
Blissful are the Reconcilers,
For they will be adopted by God.
Blissful are the Defenders of Perfection,
For they too are the Force of Heaven.
Blissful are you when others insult you, slander you and rudely gossip about you because of me. Be happy, for you will be justly compensated in the spiritual realms, since they’ve done the same thing to other sensitives before you.
You are the earth’s preservers. But if the preserve becomes mouldy, how can it be preserved again? It is good for nothing, except to be thrown in the dustbin.
You are the world’s spiritual channellers. Those set in high positions cannot hide, and no one creates energy to bury it in the ground, but shares it so that everyone can benefit. Therefore share your spiritual energy with others so that they may understand that God is working through you beneficially.
Don’t think that I’ve come to erase the Karmic Law and the Prophet’s written words: I’ve come, not to remove them, but to prove them right. I’m telling you the truth: until the Universe disappears, nothing, but nothing, will disappear from the Law until everything is worked out.
Anyone who breaks the most minor of these instructions, and causes others to do the same, will be considered the most minor in the spiritual realms; but anyone who follows these instructions and causes others to do the same will be considered great in the spiritual reams. For I’m telling you that, unless you live more perfectly than the preachers and teachers, you will definitely not share the spiritual power.
You know the old saying, “Don’t kill, for anyone who kills will be tried by a Judge.” But I’m telling you that anyone who is unreasonably angry with a neighbour, will be tried by a Judge, and anyone who judges his neighbour a “bastard” will be tried by the Council, and anyone who judges him an “idiot” will be tried by the tortures of Hellfire. So, if you are giving your money to charity and you remember that your neighbour has a complaint against you, leave your money in your pocket, go and make amends first, and then make your gift.
Quickly satisfy your opponent on the way to Court, or he may hand you over to the Judge, and the Judge to the Guard, and you could be imprisoned. I’m telling you the truth: you’ll never be free again until you’ve righted every wrong.
You’ve heard the saying, “Do not be sexually perverted.” But I’m telling you that any man who fantasises about a woman has already become emotionally corrupt.
So if your right eye prevents your progress, pluck it out and throw it away. It’s more to your profit to throw away one of your body parts than to have the whole body thrown away. And if your right hand prevents your progress, cut it off and throw it away. It’s more to your gain to lose one of your limbs than to have the whole body get lost.
And the saying, “Any man who sends his wife away must grant her a legal divorce.” But I’m telling you that every man who sends his wife away, except for an extra-marital affair, makes her sexually immoral, and any man who marries a divorced woman is also sexually decadent.
Again you know that old saying, “Do not go back on your word, but give back to the Lord your bond.” But I’m telling you not to legally obligate yourself, at all, by calling the Stars to witness, because they form God’s Seat of Power, nor the Earth, because it’s His Footstool, nor Jerusalem, because it’s the City of the Great King, nor your own head, because you haven’t the authority to make your white hairs black again. Let your “yes” be yes, and your “no,” no. Anything more is egotistical.
You know the saying, “An eye to replace an eye, and a tooth to replace a tooth.” But I’m telling you, don’t fight selfishness: if someone slaps your right cheek, offer him the other cheek, too; and if someone takes you to court for the shirt off your back, give him your coat as well; and if someone makes you accompany him for one mile, go two miles with him. Give to anyone who asks of you, and lend to anyone who wants to borrow from you.
You know the saying, “Love your friends and hate your enemies.” But I’m telling you: Love your enemies and forgive your persecutors, that you may be worthy of the right to be children of the heavenly Father, who makes the sun shine on the selfish and the good, and showers rain on the just and the unjust. If you love those who love you, so what? Even the Collector of Taxes does that. And if you greet only your relatives, what’s so special about that? Even Pygmies do that.
Emulate the Perfection of your Heavenly Father.
Be careful not to do your “good deeds” in public to gain publicity, otherwise you won’t gain your Father’s favour in the spiritual realms. So, when you are donating to a charity, don’t sing your own praises like hypocrites to attract attention. I’m telling you: that will be all they get from it. When you give to the needy, keep it secret, even from yourself, and your Father, who sees the secrets, will repay you. And when you pray, don’t act like hypocrites, who love to be seen praying in public. I’m telling you the truth, that’s all they get from it. When you pray, find a private place, shut the door and pray to your Father, in secret. Then your Father, who sees the secrets, will compensate you.
When praying, do not use empty words recited by rote, like the uninitiated, who think that mere repetition will make them heard: don’t be like them, for your Father knows your needs before you even ask him.
Pray like this:
|“Our Father, in the spiritual realms,
May your Name remain sacred,
May your Power come
And your Will be done,
As above, so below.
Take care of our everyday needs
And forgive our mistakes,
As we forgave other’s mistakes.
And don’t put us to the test,
But rescue us from Egotism.”
If you forgive others their flaws, your heavenly Father will forgive you, too. But if you don’t forgive others, neither shall your Father forgive your flaws.
And when you fast, don’t be gloomy like hypocrites, for they make horrible faces to let others know they are fasting. I’m telling you the truth: they get what they deserve. But when you fast, comb your hair and wash your face so that it isn’t obvious to others that you are fasting, but only to your Father, in secret, and your Father, who sees the secrets, will compensate you.
Do not put your store in earthly possessions, which can be destroyed by moth and rust, and stolen by thieving raiders, but put your store in heavenly Treasure, which cannot become moth-eaten or rusty, nor stolen by raiding thieves, because where your treasure is, your soul will be there also.
The eye is the light sensor of the body: if your eyes are focussed, your whole being will be rightly directed, but if your eyes are crooked, your whole being will be bewildered. If, then, your inner direction is confused, how confusing is that confusion.
No one can obey two bosses, for either he will hate one and love the other, or he will pay attention to one and ignore the other. You cannot serve both the Spirit and the body.
Therefore, I’m saying to you: don’t be anxious for your life: what you should eat, what you should drink; nor for your body, what you should wear. Isn’t life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the sky birds: they don’t plant, harvest or store in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not more deserving than them? Who of you, by fretting, can increase his height by one inch? And why worry about clothes? Think about how the wildflowers grow: they don’t work or sew, yet I’m telling you that even Solomon in all his majesty was not graced like one of these. If that’s how God clothes the wild grass, which is here today and burned tomorrow, why not you much more, Worry Warts? Therefore, don’t worry, saying, “What should we eat?” or “What should we drink?” or “What should we wear?” The uninitiated desire all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But first desire His Power and His Perfection and all these things will be included. Therefore don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry for itself. Each day has enough in it to endure.
Do not condemn, as a way to avert being condemned, because you will be condemned with the condemnation with which you condemn, and you will be compared with the comparison with which you compare.
Why do you look for the speck of dust in your neighbour’s eyes, but cannot see the plank of wood in your own eye? How can you say to your neighbour, “Let me flick the speck out of your eye,” while you have a log in yours? Hypocrite, first draw out the wood blocking your sight and then you’ll see clearly to flick the speck out of your neighbour’s eye.
Do not reveal Secret Truth to the ordinary public, and do not give Spiritual Gems to the Great Unwashed, or else they may abuse the Knowledge and turn it back against you, destroying your life.
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you. For, every asker receives, and the seeker finds, and to the knocker, the door will be opened. Which of you, when your child asks for bread, gives him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, gives him a snake? If you, being selfish, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good things to those who ask Him? Therefore, in everything you do, treat everyone as you want them to treat you, for this is the essence of the Law of Karma and the Prophet’s written warnings.
Cross the mountain by the narrow pass. Because the opening is wide, and the way leading to destruction broad, many go by this direction. Because the passage is tight and the Way leading to Life is very restrictive, few people find it.
Be aware of Astrologers who seem benign, but are filled with malignancy. By their results, you will recognise them. Do grapes come from thorn trees, or figs from thistles? In the same way, every good tree bears beneficial produce, but a corrupt tree shows only harmful effects. Every tree not producing good fruit is cut down and burned. You will recognise them by their results.
Not everyone who says to me, “Lord, Lord,” will share in the Force, but only those who do my heavenly Father’s Will. Someday, many will say to me, “Lord, Lord: did we not predict in your name, and exorcise demons in your name, and perform many miracles in your name?” And I will clearly announce to them, “I never knew you. Get away from me, you profiteers.”
Therefore, everyone who hears my words and acts on them is like a sensible man who built his house on a foundation of rock. The rain came down, the rivers rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it didn’t fall. But everyone who hears my words and doesn’t act on them is like a foolish man who built his house on a foundation of shifting sand. The rain came down, the rivers rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and LOUD was its crash.
