“Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall “see” God.” (Mathew 5:8)
What does it mean – to be “pure of heart”?
I think it means to live without ego
So that nothing can interfere with in-coming reality –
The kind of “reality” that overlaps with a true experience of God.
That’s what “enlightenment” also is –
What happens when one wakes up from egoistic fantasies and dreams
Into the daylight of reality.
A heart that’s not pure is like a little red engine
That is perpetually manufacturing dreams for the ego “self.”
A heart that’s pure, however, “sees” reality
Which is what God wants –
In other words, God constantly encourages us to see God’s face
Which we now know is identical with reality!
