I meditate quasi-regularly. Not nearly as disciplined about it as I ought to be. I realized today, at the end of my meditation, why it is that the meek shall inherit the Earth.
The reason is:
Nobody else wants it.
Any normal, non-meek person, on being offered the Earth, checks it out, smells it, holds it at arm’s length, and nicely hands it back, saying, “Ummm, thanks… but no.”
But a meek person, on being offered this inheritance, says, “Oh, thank you. You’re very kind.”
I thought I’d share.
