Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth (Matthew 5:5) at first blush this seems to make little sense. We all know or have known “meek” individuals and blessed isn’t usually the first thing that comes to mind. So, once again, we face a spiritual conundrum. The statement is either true or it isn’t, and if it isn’t, what else is false and how in the world are we supposed to figure it out. In much the same way as “poor in spirit” is misunderstood, so is the term meek spiritually. Meek, before God, means simply to be humble and compliant to the path of Spiritual enlightenment, nothing more. When the Rich Young Man (who had great possessions) sought out the rabbi Jesus, Jesus did not berate or condemn him. He merely pointed out that he would have to leave his “possessions” (preconceived ideas and beliefs) behind if he were to grow spiritually, which he was unable to do, so he left sorrowful as the result. Upon placing our feet on the path of enlightenment we must “cease fighting everything and everyone” and strive to be “meek as Moses” to be successful. Simple but not easy, a price has to be paid and that price is the surrendering of self.
So now we have the key: Spiritually to be meek is to be wholly committed to Living on the Spiritual Basis. Through our actions we demonstrate the Love, power and guidance of God, His blessings in demonstration and our Spiritual inheritance is realized.
