Thus They Call It The Promised Land (Part 8): The Beautiful Beatitudes

This is the last post of my Holyland trip series, I hope you haven't got bored with it just yet. Here I went to the Mount of Beautitudes and Sea of Galilee.
"Blessed are the clean of heart, for they will see God." (Matthew 5:8)
Yes or no? Having a clear mind and heart will serve you well because you will see everything in a much fresher perspective, compared to when your heart is filled with negative thoughts.
If you are a Christian and familiar with the Bible, you'll know that there are nine beautitudes. This one captured my heart because it reminded me of my own experience in searching for the elusive, everpresent, but unseen God.
When my heart was filled with anger, disappointment, anxiety, and rebellious tendencies, I couldn't see God, no matter how hard I tried. Only when I became so exhausted from my own battles and gave up, and just let all those negative thoughts simmered down, then everything became clear. And there, I saw God. I felt God. I knew there is a God.
Therefore, I try to remind myself everyday, every morning when I wake up, that only when my heart is clean, I can see God.

Good morning, God!
