--by Peace Pilgrim (Nov 19, 2001)
Blessed are they who give without expecting even thanks in return, for they shall be abundantly rewarded.
Blessed are they who translate every good thing that they know into action, for even higher truths shall be revealed unto them.
Blessed are they who love and trust their fellow beings, for they shall reach the good in people and receive a loving response.
Blessed are they who have seen reality, for they know that not the garment of clay but that which activated the garment of clay is real and indestructible.
Blessed are they who after dedicating their lives and thereby receiving a blessing, have the courage and faith to surmount the difficulties of the path ahead, for they shall receive a second blessing.
Blessed are they who advance towards the spiritual path without the selfish motive of seeking inner peace, for they shall find it. [...]
In this world you are given as you give
And you are forgiven as you forgive--
While you go your way
Through each lovely day
You create your future as you live.
