The Second New Beatitude is Be God’s Glory.
Our Father God is great, powerful, and magnificent, and so are we, being God’s children. Our innocence and love are God’s glory that corrects all illusions.
Now this thought might seem unbelievable but I can assure you, it is true. Yet when Jesus said we are innocent I had a difficult time accepting it myself, because I felt guilty and shameful for my sin, as my Methodist religion taught me.
Yet Jesus says God still sees us as the innocent beings He created, so there is nothing to forgive.
We have all made mistakes, and all is forgiven. Our seeming faults are expressions of love that our Father overlooks as part of our expansion of love in a world of duality and illusion.
In fact, we remain the love that we are, because our Father is love and so are we. He does not judge us; He only loves us. In the presence of God’s unconditional love, everything less falls away.
Even more, Love is the power of life and breath, it is eternal and cannot be destroyed, and it is All That Is and All that remains.
This truth is certainly glorious and much to celebrate. As for me, I am ever so grateful to let my mistakes fall by the wayside in the presence of eternal love, and to remain and be what I Am as an extension of my Father and Love IS. So be it.
