Blessed are the Merciful

Merciful is not about forgiveness. It is about identification with another human being. It means rising above our own thoughts and feelings in order to "see the world" through the eyes of another. We are forgiven as we forgive others.

Blessed are the merciful for they will receive mercy. (5th Beatitude) As far as I am concerned the Beatitudes are the landscapes of working through everyday life.
