Blessed are the poor in spirit? Lou Pilder

Somewhere or other I read that the sermon on the Mount was a typical beatitude that had been added later.

I'm a bit conflicted on this.

On the one hand I can see that people who are abjectly suffering sometimes acquire a weird beauty that no doubt comes from their deep authenticity (this is starting to sound terrible, but it's the best I can do, and anyway, it's true).

It's probably the state of abjection rather than the suffering, which reminds me (and therefore I must mention it) of a big street sign in the city I live near, where someone had painted up 'Embrace the Abject', and I thought 'My goodness. Signs of intelligent life.'

In short Lou, what I am trying to say is that I feel the problem is less our carnal natures than our conscious minds.

Whaddya reckon?

How do our carnal natures fit with our conscious minds?
