Decrypting the Bible: What Wealth Do You Claim? - A Humble Offering to Tim Truzy!
Empty yourself of selfishness to fill with happiness.— Sean Dragon
About Tim Truzy (Tim Truzy info4u)
In my life, I have been blessed with the gift of knowing some remarkable human beings! I call some of them "disciples of Jesus" because I am sure that if they were living at His time, they would be His followers. But the most important thing about them is that I know that Jesus is proud of them because of the way they live their lives today, in these troubled times. They serve Love in a way that gives them this desirable title. One of them is Tim! I am so proud to call him my brother and learning from him new ways of serving Love.
My brother Tim, I am grateful to know you! I hope that my offering to you will stand worthy of your noble Heart! Love and prayers to you and your beloved ones.
Words of Redemption
The word of Jesus is revolutionary. I think it's actually the most revolutionary word that has been heard on this planet. It was when it was first heard, and it is still two thousand years after. My hope is that at some point it will cease to be revolutionary and it will become self-evident for all of us.
His teaching is a guide to the development of our mind, spirit and soul in order to accomplish our reunion with God, and first of all in this world. Thus we must always bear in mind that Jesus' word is purely symbolic and allegorical to help the one who will want to seek, who will decide to overcome the barriers that the material world puts in our minds, in order to find the road to the deliverance of his Soul. This is the reason why His teaching will often put us in a difficult position as it will confront us with the illusions and lies we have learned to live with.
So if we want to win the inestimable treasure that His word can offer to us, we have to unlock it. Not the treasure, the self! We have to change the way we stand against the events of our lives, change the way we look or even better to change the eyes with which we look at the world! From the eyes of matter, we have to pass to the eyes of the Spirit. Otherwise, we will often misunderstand the meaning of His words.
One of these cases is beatitude:
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 5:3)
Clearly, Jesus with the term "poor in spirit" does not mean foolishness. Each of us, in the course of his life and through his experiences, has accumulated a "spiritual wealth" of opinions, perceptions, prejudices and ideas based on our self-centred understanding of the world. This is the spiritual wealth to which Jesus refers and which many times will become an obstacle to the longing of the Soul to experience the purity of Love because this will automatically entail the abandonment of this wealth.
So, to become someone "poor in spirit" means that he has emptied himself of every effort to impose his selfish will on Love and her needs. At the same time, it means that he is leaving behind any pre-formed opinion of God's quest. Thus, without predetermined forms, he allows his Soul to find her way to Him following the Light and Love. It means that having abandoned the spiritual wealth that has accumulated so far through the path of spiritual pride, he is ready and willing to leave the current patterns of thought, opinions, prejudices, and illusions. He is prepared to change even his current way of life so that as pure as a reborn infant can understand the truth that will lead him to his rightful place within Creation.
It finally means that by abandoning all this "wealth" that stands as an obstacle to the discovery of God within him, due to the distractions it puts in his way, he is ready to return to the Reign of Love, to the Kingdom of Heaven, to his Home where his true inheritance always waits for him.
