4-11-12 Abundance

First, a quote: "The mystery of life is not in living it is in death."

My sharing in this blog is explaining what works for me.  In my effort to be nobody and to know nothing, I realized that what works for me and my understandings of the learning that has been sent my way is for me and my way of seeing. I only share it here on the chance there may be something of some value to someone else. I've also realized that I may have done some good deeds, but I sorely lack virtue.  My ego is still very much in play.  The happiness I'm reaching for cannot include my ego.

Today I want to re-write about 23 Palsms: 

"1. The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

        What this means to me is, the Lord is quiding me, proctecting me and making sure I'm well in all ways, but, because I came to his human experience and the experience imposed an ego on me, I don't always want what my Lord is always and forever bestowing on me.;

2. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
        What this means to me is, the Lord is providing rest for me and showing me where peace of mind is.

3. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
         What this means to me is, the Lord is sending me resources, people and lessons for me to grow
          spiritually for this life's experience and for all eternity.

4. 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.
          What this means to me is that this human experience with end in death, and as I look to God no evil can befall me because he is always with me, even when I don't believe he is.  My lord is my example and my mediator. His grace has been accomplished and I can rely on his grace in every situation I encounter.

5. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
           What this means to me is no matter what I'm thinking, complete abundance (protection, money, love, and the companionship of angels) is right in front of me.  I can choose at any minute to see this and seeing this is my guarantee.  It's my free will to not believe in this abundance, but it is there should I choose to believe. The part about anointing my head with oil speaks volumes of his love for me. My glass is not half full is it running over with love and abundance.  He still loves me even though I fall way short of my ability.

6. 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"
             To embrace this sentence with my full facilities is the sweetest most profound blessing of all!

If could spend the rest of my time of earth, this time around with this scripture clearly in my mind, all will be well with me.
