realization: Why the meek shall inherit the Earth…

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.
