Eightfold Path and Fruition


"Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are they who mourn,
for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek,
for they shall inherit the earth.
 

Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they shall be satisfied.

Blessed are the merciful,
for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure of heart,
for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they shall be called children of God.

Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."


Beatitudes don't promise bliss in the future, when some other state will be reached, but they state it as a fact established already in the present. Poor in spirit meaning poor in thoughts about past and future, poor in futile speculations.
Eight is a number of infinity containing unity of the walking the Path of soul's awakening and its completion, symbol of one's being centered in ever new presence in actual now.
Eight statements of beatitudes are thus complete revelation for the activation of the potential for happiness and joy already latently present in every human heart.  
They are represented by the eight points of the holy cross which when revolving gives an image of the flower; All symbols of the fully bloomed human heart, fully functioning human being, called child of God; Which is animated by the new, thirteenth power coming outside of the old, endlessly recycling twelve zodiacal powers.  
This new power comes from the domain of pure, sidereal light, or kingdom of heaven
It contacts human system in the central organ from which blood and thus whole system can be purified and ennobled for the soul-life of higher virtues, in inner joy and freedom.
Blessed are already all those opening their heart in trust, longing for the Spirit, for the Light and real Life in Eternal Harmony. 
They shall attract the response from the Light, 
they will be inspired and guided into the life of their heart’s core desire.
