we spend our life trying to become, but the beauty is in the unbecoming

Beatitudes Remixed (March 2017, Israel)

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. (Blessed are those who have given up on life. Blessed are those who fear life has given up on them. Blessed are those who feel abandoned.)
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. (Blessed are the children who teach us love has no bounds. Blessed are the women who are told they are worth less. Blessed are those enslaved by their fellow man.)
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. (Blessed are the sex workers. Blessed are the food insecure. Blessed are those who remind us that our worth is defined by love and not by money. Blessed are those in prison and those on death row.)
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be show mercy. (Blessed are those who give others second chances. Blessed are we who need second chances.)
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. (Blessed are those in the LGBTQ community who know love beyond male and female. Blessed are the homeless. Blessed are people of all political backgrounds.)
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. (Blessed are the pacifists and the activists. Blessed are the stewards of our physical earth. Blessed is the refugee.)
Blessed are those persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 
(Blessed are you. And blessed am I.)
