The Beatitudes from The Great Mystic

A new translation of what Jesus said. - From his spoken Aramaic
(The Beatitudes.)

Tuned to the Source are those who hold fast to the spirit of life; They are held by the one breath of the cosmic ruler of all that shines.

Healed will be those who weep for their confusion and frustrated desire; They shall see the face of fulfillment in a new form.

Aligned with the One are those who have softened what has become rigid within; they shall be renewed, open to receive earth’s splendid fruits.

Integrated and without delusion are those who long for a foundation of peace and justice; they shall be encircled by a new society.

Blessed are those who shine from their deepest place and birth mercy; they shall feel the heat of cosmic ardour and embrace.

Healthy are those whose passion is electrified by deep abiding purpose and the core of love; They shall regard the power and wealth that animates itself in all things.

Aligned with the One are those who prepare the ground for tranquil gatherings; who plant peace each season and strike the chord that unites; They shall be the rays of the One.

Blessings to you when you are dislocated for the cause of justice; your new home is the province of the universe: the Word above; the Earth beneath.

Strength shall fill you when you are conspired against, spent, disunited for my sake. Then feel at the peak, be moved, act to extremes. Let your ego disappear and receive abundance, multiplied around you.

(Translations by Neil Douglas Klotz)
