MEEK: Showing patience and humility with gentleness and approachability. When in action, MEEKNESS exposes the true character of the practitioner because it is tested under long-suffering for righteous causes, stands and movements. The calling card or introduction to it is simplicity an action without a will driven by substance. Imagine that. Being meek involves a simple, effortless approach
CONSIDER THE OPPOSITE
When one is complex and willful, being overly ambitious and deliberate with a type of tunnel vision (not to be confused with focus), as soon as they reduce or turn off that energy, where do they return to? A state of rest, where they find a type of refuge from being too engrossed and demanding from the self
When one studies or observes Nature, it operates under seasons meaning there is a time and purpose to what it does and when. Consequently the flow dictates the outcome without assistance from any other sources. Why? That is its true nature (pun) or purpose of natural performance and existence
GOING AGAINST THE INTENTION
Mankind was not meant to struggle. It doesn't look good on a human being to be without or in a state of less than what we were or intended to be. Not only are we too intelligent to act like we are not but we are also designed for greatness. Not one of egoistical standing but more of a majesty and awe
Because we are so well designed, we can stand up to abuse, misuse and failure quite well. The only reason you can is to enable you come back to your true default & not stray again. Instead, people tend to push their limits, take advantage of the straying and repeat. Short term success may work here but...
AT WHAT PRICE
At a great cost through wear and tear through misapplication and purpose. Imagine using something that was not designed to be used a certain way. Take smoking for instance. At what point did we lose our common sense and agree to put smoke in the very body part that provides fresh oxygen to us?
DRUGS AT WORK
There is no future in this long-term and short term that causes the body to compensate for this abuse while operating in a toxic state. What makes it tolerable? An underlying drug called nicotine that has one returning to the "feelings" generated by it entering into the body and providing a false stimulus
This is not being "meek" just by its actions but instead creating more of a false life other than the one intended. The "trick" at work is subtle. You are allowed to do this and many other things that were not meant but the price exacted is at work. The same goes for lying, cheating, stealing and all the rest too
Going "off" character or purpose is allowed but never was it intended. That is what bothers us all as we travel and behold each other in the different circumstances and situations both intended and dysfunctional. We have taken what was never meant to be but allowed and made it entertaining
As a result, perversion is born. An action never intended which serves to dehumanize and support a person going in the wrong direction. Perversion defined: the altering of something from its original course, meaning, or state to a distortion, mutation or corruption of the original intention
Where is meekness in all this? Self-respect? Truism? Righteousness? What I am describing is a world where a set of rules is at work never intended but thriving and it cannot sustain itself simply because it it is working against its purpose or design. It is on a countdown to not exist
SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST?
It was never meant or intended for something so beautiful and made in a precious image to act out less than that. When a human being is closer to the animal kingdom by nature and deed, the mighty have fallen. The only thing that keeps it from completely transforming is as follows...
The Meek! They serve as a reminder to the fallen and the ones who have strayed that they did. Built-into that reminder is a process calling to the individual to stop and come back to the default state where everything is provided for and will thrive if one will allow it and at best, not interfere with the process
When the willful, aggressive and overly ambitious become the majority in any situation, only the strongest and the most shrewd will survive. In this environment, the meek are a type of perverse "food" and entertainment for those that are out of order and temporarily out of their minds too
Let each one examine themselves, consult the conscience and make the appropriate changes. Living a guilt free life which is one that is without guilt that stems from wrong choices and behavior is rewarding by default. It comes with a state of rest and approval something that cannot be bought
BEING KNOWN IN HIGH PLACES
Being "meek" is not being a wimp or less than who you are. It is actually closer to the state of being of a receiver and if one chooses and maintains to live in that state, the GIVER of all things will do what HE does best i.e. to give! It gets even better too. How? It is done before the asking.
