Eckhart Tolle Tuesday: “Blessed Are the Poor in Spirit”

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,” Jesus said, “for theirs will be the kingdom of heaven” [Matthew 5:3]. What does “poor in spirit” mean? No inner baggage, no identifications. Not with things, nor with any mental concepts that have a sense of self in them. And what is the “kingdom of heaven”? The simple but profound joy of Being that is there when you let go of identifications and so become “poor in spirit.”
