THE WAY OF THE NINE BEATITUDES or THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT

As they are presented, preached by God in the “Sermon of the Mount” from the Gospel according to Matthew (5/3 -11), the nine Beatitudes are (what I would name):

The Job’s ladder for everybody, and for the each of us, too.

For the man who constantly and firmly searches his becoming into God, The Nine Beatitudes can be revealed like this:

1) SIMPLICITY (not simplistic) IN EVERYTHING.

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

2) PENANCE           

Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

3) MEEKNESS

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

4) HONESTY

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.

5) COMPASSION

Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.

6) PURIFICATION

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.

7) NON-VIOLENCE

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.

8) TRUTH PRACTICE

Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

9) SALVATION

Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.

***

So, you can “sit” on each of these stages (beatitudes) and on every of them.

And you can contemplate God (sitting in contemplation on each of them) all your life.

Maybe, in the end, at a certain time, you will perceive/have some revelatory “candles” of God.

But you will have the Revelation of God on the path of the Nine Beatitudes only climbing stage by stage – all the nine.

Because the “divine beatitude” is possible only after the fulfillment of the nine beatitudes (human, in fact) like this: one by one and all of them.

The Way of the Nine Beatitudes is a double initiation, profane and sacred in God’s Mystery – The Father, The Son Jesus Christ and The Holy Ghost.

In the “Sermon of the Mount”, speaking about happiness in front of the crowd, in fact in front of everybody who wanted to listen to Him and follow Him, Lord Jesus Christ, through His Word showed Himself as He came: The Son of God and the Son of Man.

The Only Son.

…the ghosts from stars… and the moon…/

CALEA CELOR NOUA FERICIRI  sau  PREDICA DE PE MUNTE

FERICIRILE asa cum se infatiseaza ele cuvintate de Domnul Iisus Christos

in” Predica de pe Munte “, din Evanghelia dupa Matei (5/ 3 -11),

Cele 9 (Noua) Fericiri sint (ceea ce eu as numi) :

 “Scara lui Iacov pentru toata lumea, dar pentru fiecare dintre noi.”

Pentru cel care cauta constant si neabatut devenirea sa intru Dumnezeu,

Cele 9 (Noua) Fericiri arata astfel:

1)       SIMPLITATE (nu simplism!) IN TOATE

Ferice de cei saraci in duh, caci a lor va fi Imparatia Cerurilor.

2)       POCAINTA

Ferice de cei care pling, caci ei vor fi mingiiati.

3)       BLINDETE

Ferice de cei blinzi, caci ei vor mosteni Pamintul.

4)       ONESTITATE

Ferice de cei care flaminzesc si inseteaza dupa dreptate, caci ei vor fi saturati.

5)       COMPASIUNE (nu simpla mila!)

Ferice de cei milostivi, caci ei vor gasi mila.

6)       PURIFICARE

Ferice de cei cu inima curata, caci ei vor vedea pe Dumnezeu.

7)       NON-VIOLENTA

Ferice de cei impaciuitori, caci ei vor fi chemati fii ai Lui Dumnezeu.

8)       PRACTICAREA  ADEVARULUI

Ferice de cei prigoniti din cauza dreptatii, caci a lor este Imparatia Cerurilor.

9)       SALVAREA

Ferice va fi de voi cind, din cauza Mea, oamenii va vor insulta, va vor prigoni

si vor spune tot felul de lucruri rele si neadevarate impotriva voastra.

***

Astfel, te poti “aseza” pe fiecare dintre aceste treapte (fericiri) si pe oricare

dintre ele.  Si poti sa-L contempli pe Dumnezeu (stind asa, in contemplatie, pe oricare dintre ele) toata viata ta.

Poate ca, intr-un tirziu, uneori vei zari/avea si unele “luminari ” revelatorii de Dumnezeu.

Insa, nu vei avea Revelatia Lui Dumnezeu pe calea Celor 9 (Noua Fericiri) decit urcind treapta dupa treapta – toate cele noua trepte.

Caci “fericirea dumnezeiasca” este posibila abia dupa implinirea acestor noua fericiri

(omenesti, de fapt) astfel : una cite una si toate.

Calea Celor 9 (Noua) Fericiri este o dubla initiere, profana si sacra in Misterul Domnului Dumnezeu – Tatal Dumnezeu, Fiul Iisus Christos si Sfintul Duh.

In “Predica de pe Munte“, vorbind despre Fericire (despre cele 9 Fericiri) in fata multimilor, deci in fata oricui vrea sa-L asculte si sa-L urmeze, prin Cuvintul Sau  Domnul Iisus Christos s-a aratat a fi cine este vesnic : Fiul Lui Dumnezeu si Fiul Omului

Unicul Fiu.

 

“…aburul noptii…/

duh dinspre stele…luna…/

tace fiinta…”

Leonard Oprea created the Breathing, an original type of essay in Romanian and world literature.The Breathing is a short, simple yet profound meditation on human condition, a meditation ended by a haiku. But – this haiku does not finish the meditation. In fact, it re-opens this reflection to new questions and responses on human destiny. There are 100 Breathings in Leonard Oprea’s work „Theophil Magus – Confessions 2004 – 2006”, ed. „Universal Dalsi”, 2007, Romania)
