Blessed are the peacemakers; for they shall be called the children of God. ~Matthew 5:9
We are all children of God, but ignorance has covered a lot of us over. The ignorance I speak of is mainly ego. As I mentioned before, EGO is an acronym for “Easing God Out.”
When we forget who we are (spiritually), and when we think we are in control or when we think we know better…when we do not follow the laws in the scriptures of our faith, or the faith we were born into, we are pretending to know better than God (or pretending to be God), thus replacing God with other images.
In the Bhagavatam, a popular Hindu scripture, it says; “He in whose heart God has become manifested brings peace, and cheer and delight everywhere he goes.”
This is the peace about which Jesus speaks in His Sermon.
The peace Jesus speaks of starts with us. We must live a peaceful life and follow the path He outlines here in the Beatitudes and in His teachings, which include the Commandments of the Bible.
The peace He speaks of comes from within, and then it radiates outward to all that come into the peacemaker’s path.
We cannot bring peace about until we each have had our own “realization” of our relationship with God and with all beings, thus seeing God in all living entities.
Peace be with you. God bless.
