Y’shua’s Path ~

The Blessing Way

When we look at the Aramaic words of Y’shua (as put forth in the Peshitta Gospels of the Syriac Orthodox Church,) we become aware that the growing, planting , fruit-bearing analogies that survived the double translation from Y’shua’s native Aramaic, to Greek, to English, are more prolific than we ever imagined.

Look at the beatitudes as expounded in Prayers of the Cosmos, by Neil Douglas-Klotz. Study what the root words mean. Planting, fruit bearing, satisfying hunger, these are the themes Yeshua used.

It has been many years since I first became aware that the beatitudes were a condensed set of instructions rather than a pretty poem. Poverty of Spirit had to mean humility, and what about the kingdom? He wasn’t speaking of an afterlife. That was obvious when he spoke to the twelve about becoming as little children in order to enter in. What about mourning? What was I mourning for?

Look at what Douglas-Klotz shows us about the first beatitude. When you examine his textual notes as well as his possible interpretations, you find that we are instructed to make our home base in the luminosity of Spirit, and that only then will we be able to bear fruit that can nourish. Fruit that satisfies a deep hunger is addressed in the fourth beatitude. Fruit-bearing comes up again in the 7th.

I’ve heard it taught that the beatitudes were actually “be attitudes.” When you look at the Aramaic translation, this is not only possible, but we can now see them as a description of the Path Y’shua taught, the Blessing Way.

  • Blessed are those who base their lives in the luminosity of Spirit; theirs shall be the ability to bear edible fruit.
  • Blessed are those who long from deep within themselves (to enter the “kingdom”,) they shall be united inside by Love.

Words in parentheses are mine, so substitute if you need to there .

  • Blessed are those who surrender their will to the One; they shall be empowered.
  • Blessed are those who watch by night, longing with a deep hunger and thirst for true rightness both within and without; they shall be surrounded by the edible fruit with which to satisfy that hunger.
  • Blessed are those who from their inner depths extend the loving compassion that warms the heart and nurtures the soul; Mercy and compassion shall be theirs.
  • Blessed are those who seek consistently to follow the way of the heart; their inner eyes shall be opened, they shall truly see the One.
  • Blessed are the bearers of edible fruit; through them God’s nourishment will flow to others.
  • Blessed are they which, in the pursuit of fruit bearing, experience domination, disjointedness, and even scandal for my sake; The Holy One whose name reverberates throughout the Universe shall nurture them..
  • Blessings when your strength is tapped out , and others would lay on you the burden of their own shortcomings; Rejoice, it is time, step out of your shell, expand! Become as the wind or the rays of the sun. Drink deeply of Spirit. Let your ego dissipate in your knowledge of the Heavenly realms.
  • You are not the first; you will not be the last.

  1. This is a bad interpretation.

  2. First, thank you for reading my comments. I am curious as to why you believe this a bad interpretation of the Beatitudes. Have you read the Prayers of the Cosmos by Neil-Douglas Klotz? I would love to discuss this further. What do you consider “bad”, we could start there. Continue your search, Daniel, I believe the truth will come for you, it is in the searching, and I believe it to be simpler than many of the doctrinal comments that are “out there”. I cannot promise that what I have to offer will relieve your search, but it would be good to discuss.

    BTW, my ID on Yahoo is Sumariel7, if you would like to arrange a time for a “chat” I would make myself available. Again, thank you for reading, and hope to “talk” to you.
