Psalm 23 Interpreted***
“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want”
Divinity…the infinite Force which I Am… protects me in my humanness. My ego is a little sheep in the vastness of the Creative Force which guides me in this human existence. As I open to this Force, all of my needs are met. I want for nothing.
”He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters”.
As I finally learn to open to the Divine Energy which I truly am, and allow it to flow through me unfettered; the rocky roads and the pain give way to flowering fields where I can rest. The turbulence and the chaos yield to still waters where I can nurture and refresh my spirit.
“He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake”.
Divine Energy moving through me makes me aware of my soul’s true purpose, that which I designed before coming into this body. As I learn to feel my own soul’s calling, I manifest “righteousness”, because this is the deepest expression of my essence. It is as natural as my own breath. “For his name’s sake”…I exist because of Source which is constantly fulfilling Itself through me.
“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me”.
At birth I enter the “valley of the shadow of death”. This illusory shadow hangs over my human existence. Aligned with the God within, there is nothing to fear from the horrors that I can be subject to. The Energy is with me always, for it is who I Am. It can never abandon me. I can lean on the bliss of Creative Energy; it serves as my rod and my staff during the challenging times of my human existence.
“Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over”.
Truly I have no enemies when I am aligned with All That Is. The feast is the direct experience of Divinity; even in the face of those who would wish to do me harm. It is always there, beneath the fear. Through aligning with the Grace of this Energy, I am anointed and blessed with abundance.
“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever”.
All that I will ever need for the expression of my soul’s purpose flows to me as I live from the Divine energy which I AM. In death I continue to blossom in the magnificent abode of the One.
