The Sixth Beatitude
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. (Matthew)
Happiness lies in having a heart unburdened by evil thoughts and impulses to evil deeds. But how to be free of what too often occupies us — resentment, the urge to get even?
This is part of the evil we pray to be delivered from with the words: And deliver us from evil.
There is nothing happier than the freedom one feels to know one is poor in spirit, without a leg to stand on, and need therefore never feel so superior to others that evil thoughts against them poison existence.
The capacity to see ultimate Truth is given to such.
