"Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth."

Dear friends,

Meekness may be hard to understand, but its meaning is easy to experience. It happens when you pray. It happens when you say "Yes" to God, "Thy will be done." Meekness characterizes humility.

Humility is not just acknowledging that you, of yourself, can do nothing, nor is it a matter of your just abandoning willfulness, self-assertion or aggression and sitting like a blob in the Void. No, it is doing these things in the context of an invitation extended, of a desire to Know beyond your best private concepts, beyond your own righteous judgments, beyond all of the best conclusions you have arrived at while believing you were given a mind of your own with which to figure everything out.

When you go into the Silence and Listen for God, when you go into the Silence allowing only for that which expresses the Christ-consciousness, you are embodying and actualizing meekness. It is in the absence of self-assertion, of arrogantly attempting to authorize anything, and inviting Truth, that the in-filling of revelation can occur.

"Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you" is an almost exact translation of: "Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth."

Why are the meek blessed? Because the revelation of Truth returns one to his fundamental Sanity. All is seen as it Truly is, no longer distorted by what "he had figured out with a so-called mind of his own."

No one has a mind. Each one is Mind. Each one is Consciousness. And the function of Mind is not thinking; it is to see Reality, be conscious of God, and to glorify Him by acknowledging nothing else! Your Birthright, your inheritance, is returned to you in your abandonment of an ill-conceived "right" to think for yourself, and exercising that "right" in place of your real function as the observing of Creation . . . with God.
