It has been said that those "of pure heart" can summon UFOs/UAPs, & perform other actions that many of us can not: but what does "pure of heart" mean?To live without envy, greed or hate, as many (such as John Lear) suggest?

Yet I think of the way we treat animals, for example . .we do not HATE them, as such, but we USE them, experiment on them, eat their products, their excretions, & modify their bodies to produce the best "meat" for our own consumption & greatest monetary gain. . . all the while extolling kindness to CERTAIN animals, like the domestic pets with whom we cultivate personal relationships.

Also, the vegetable "Kingdom", which we equally abuse, genetically modify for our own ends, even ripping out ^ poisoning "weeds" because they offend us aesthetically. . . . .

Yet we, these people, seem to be able to "summon UFOs" & experience various "paranormal" events at seances, plus "exorcisms" of those we find intrusive & inimical to our own lives & intentions.


Sometimes, I suspect the Answer lies in Music, far beyond words & language . . not the stuff of popular, soporific mass-production, but via Bach. . . nothing compares to Bach in the western understanding, even hundreds of years later.

All religions have part of the answer, but none of them transcends its own Doctrine.

I am very aware that I am NOT "pure of heart"; yet I wish I were. . .

You know, when someone says "I dont need a religious reaponse" it always irks me.

It's as though someone who follows Christ (like me, who don't consider themselves at all religious) are also excluded from the conversation.

I mean, if you just want a worldly answer then go for it. The Bible says talking to the dead is a fools errand because the dead dont comprehend and you're simply opening yourself up to demons. But have at it...

As i do.

So we are spiritual not religious as we see through religions hypocrisy.

So - therefore we are actually more relevant to answer the OP's question.

"What does it mean to be pure of heart" ----- to be comfortable in your own skin, mind and spirituality and to be mindful that the vast majority of others are not thus need our flexibility of acceptance.

Pureness of heart is for all intended purposes an enigma and probably a quality that absolutely noone possesses despite somes best intentions.

Like the OP stated - unfortunately " i am very aware that I'm NOT pure of heart, yet i wish i were.."(indeed)

I think it’s all open to interpretation.

When I think of “Heart”, I think of ethics and morals, perhaps pure of heart can simply be those that have yet to take a soul, kill, whether for good or bad, regardless, one could say that those pure of heart individuals have integrity and strong will to adverse actions deem inappropriate and illegal.

Is it all encompassing? No, as in people aren’t perfect, humans make mistakes, the point is, we shouldn’t punish ourselves for obvious errors we commit daily that aren’t of any real importance. Yet we tend to include them into our beings, thus corrupting that sense of purpose and preventing those from seeing anything remotely close to “pure of heart’, relegating it to those who give such perceptions like religious figures.

Now, if we’re talking para causal beings who can wield energies that affect morality and life in general then perhaps I can see a god like being construction a ward that requires a being, Pure of Heart to access to prevent the powers of the darkness from accessing it. Trials and tribulations would determine these pure of heart beings. Rambling.........

Who says the pure of heart can summon UFOs and stuff, that sounds pretty dumb
Sounds like a cop out, like, you are not special enough

Biblically, pure of heart are those who may do wrong but, their intentions are true and sincere

As for pure of heart summoning aliens and stuff, bit to vague a statement to really consider valid

Snow White was supposedly "pure-of-heart".
Maybe 'tis just an imaginary state of innocence,
or perhaps it's a crafted image, to manipulate young innocent minds ?

Maybe it's one who washes their heart with 99.9999999999% pure Ivory soap ?

Someone who probably isnt stuck in the past, and doesnt look to the future, to alot of self control. That, or an extemely dumb, naive, or lucky being blessed by Gods, Devils or spirits that isnt distracted by baser instincts an petty arguements that usually get people killed.

Or sinply put, no ill will, or lack of murderous intent, or intentions.

When I hear pure of heart, i end up recalling that scene from Dragonball, an Goku being able to ride nimbus. Thing is, Kid Goku could eat a whole dinosaur.

The pure of heart are those that do not sin. Sin being the mental aggregates of desire(ego) that obscure our pure consciousness and block our energy system, aka the serpent kundalini.

Sin itself is fairly easily identified by that feeling of remorse we get afterwards.

"Who says the pure of heart can summon UFOs and stuff"

The satanic can summon ufo's. The unpure want the key to open certain gates. The dark energy they master eventually seals their fate.

I think harboring good intentions is a nice start. Wishing no ill will, even on your enemies. Praying for them even. Any time a judgmental or malicious thought comes to my mind I overcome it by praying about that same person in a positive uplifting way. (I have made subtle contact with UFOs but I tend to keep that a secret. A pure heart allows you to tune to higher dimensions)

Purity of heart, brings to mind the innocence of small children. Their example often reminds us of the humility required on one's spiritual journey.

All animal state adherence's are severed. The ego is reverse flow directed. The consciousness dwells only within the authorized degree of the Realm of the Infinite, as It is provided to this chosen one.

Two things Jesus once said:

“Your Word Is Truth” (John 17:17; praying to his God and Father, Jehovah)

“Happy Are the Pure in Heart” (Matt. 5:8; part of his Sermon on the Mount)

Throughout God’s Word, the Bible, the heart is made prominent; its importance is stressed. In fact, the heart is mentioned some 740 times from Genesis through Revelation.

Typical of the importance that God’s Word attaches to the heart are the words found at Proverbs 4:23: “More than all else that is to be guarded, safeguard your heart, for out of it are the sources of life.”

Most fittingly, in his Sermon on the Mount Jesus stressed the need to keep the heart pure. This was the sixth of his ‘beatitudes’ or happinesses. In fact, he promises those having pure hearts one of the highest rewards. And what is that? That they “will see God,” Him whom no man has ever seen; nor, indeed, can anyone of flesh and blood see Him and yet live.​—Matt. 5:8; Ex. 33:20; John 1:18.

The heart is the seat of motives, emotions, affections and desires. The Greek word here rendered “pure” is used by Greek writers to describe not only that which is free from contamination, such as pure water, but also that which is unadulterated, undiluted, unalloyed, such as pure milk, pure wine, pure silver and pure gold. And it was also used to describe persons that were morally pure, free from guilt.

What does it mean then for one to have a pure heart according to Jehovah God('s Word, the Bible)? For one thing it means that one has an undivided heart, a heart that gives Jehovah God what he requires of us, namely, exclusive devotion. (Ex. 20:5) As the psalmist prayed: “Unify my heart to fear your name.” (Ps. 86:11) Christians must serve Jehovah God with “a complete heart,” must love him with their “whole heart.” Those coming short in this respect are the ones to whom the disciple James wrote: “Purify your hearts, you indecisive ones.”​—1 Chron. 28:9; Mark 12:29-31; Jas. 4:8.

Song 62 To Whom do you Belong (+ context in playlist regarding the last remark quoted from James above)

A pure heart is also a heart that is morally clean. All manner of uncleanness may be harbored in the heart, even as Jesus showed: “wicked reasonings, murders, adulteries, fornications”​—all these defile the heart as well as man himself. To have a pure heart one must keep clean from “every defilement of flesh and spirit.”​—Matt. 15:19, 20; 2 Cor. 7:1.

Another thing that causes many to have hearts that are not pure is hypocrisy. Thus God’s Word tells us that “the objective of this mandate is love out of a clean heart and out of a good conscience and out of faith without hypocrisy.” If we are to please God, we may not have ulterior motives for doing things as did the religious leaders who opposed Jesus. He repeatedly denounced their hypocrisy in the strongest of terms.​—1 Tim. 1:5; Matt. 6:1-6; 23:13-36; Luke 12:1.

False Religion is a Snare and a Racket (playlist with context)

Strong faith is another requisite of the pure heart. So Christians are counseled: “Beware, brothers, for fear there should ever develop in any one of you a wicked heart lacking faith by drawing away from the living God.” Yes, they must ‘trust in Jehovah with all their hearts’ if they would have pure hearts.​—Heb. 3:12; Prov. 3:5, 6.

What will aid you to have a pure heart? The fear of displeasing Jehovah God, the fear of incurring his anger will aid you to do so. “The fear of Jehovah means the hating of bad.” “The fear of Jehovah is pure, standing forever.” No question about it, having a wholesome fear to displease Jehovah God will help you to have a pure heart.​—Prov. 8:13; Ps. 19:9.

Another aid to pureness of heart is a love of righteousness, a determination to have a good conscience. Nothing defiles a heart as much as a bad conscience, so acting in such a way as to have a good conscience will help you to keep your heart pure. The Bible shows that the apostle Paul was very concerned about having a good conscience.​—Acts 23:1; 24:16; 2 Cor. 1:12.

A warm, loving, grateful appreciation of all that Jehovah God has done for you will also help you to have a pure heart. Love of God will move you to keep his commandments, and these are not burdensome. Among those commandments is the one to safeguard, above all else, your heart.​—Prov. 4:23; 1 John 5:3.



Helpful to keeping your heart pure is also the hope of the reward of everlasting life, in the heavens or in an earthly paradise, that God holds out to all those who truly love and serve Him. “Everyone who has this hope set upon him purifies himself just as that one is pure.”​—1 John 3:3.

...

Just remember, there is more than one way of seeing God. One can see him literally or figuratively. Remember that ancient faithful servant of Jehovah God, Job? After God had enlightened him and set him straight, Job was able to say to God: “I have heard about you, but now my own eye does see you.” (Job 42:5) Those who comprise the “great crowd” mentioned at Revelation 7:9, will see God as Job did, with ‘the eyes of their heart.’ (also alluded to in some of the songs towards the end of my previous comment, which is why I didn't want to distract you from the rest of the comment with what I'm pointing out now) This was one of the reasons why Jesus came to earth, to reveal his heavenly Father to men, that they might ‘see’ him.​—Luke 10:22; John 14:9; Eph. 1:18.
