Mathew 5:8: “Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see God.”
The pure heart is an “empty” heart
A heart with plenty of room
The pure heart is a heart without ego
Because living without ego
Enables one to experience life without fantasy.
The Old Testament tells us that anyone who looks “directly” at God
Will immediately die –
And this is true for the ego
Because an ego’s encounter with God will result in its obliteration.
The “true self,” that is, the pure heart, can look at God
All day without harm –
In fact, that’s when the true self gains the power
To live life fully.
We believe it’s impossible to “be like God” –
So, instead, we dissolve into puffy white clouds
And float across endless blue skies.
We’ve also come to believe that it’s impractical for us to “die”
In order to live,
But, on unique occasions, we’re able to do it anyway.
After all, Jesus did it, and not just at the end of his life –
But every moment of every day –
So can we.
Overhead, “death” circles
Like a buzzing blue-bottle fly.
Go away death!
We don’t want to be stung
