The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. 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. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 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.
This is the 23rd Psalm.
This is probably the most frequently repeated psalm from the Judeo-Christian bible. Many people of all faiths meditate on the great truths of this Psalm. They get marvelous results. As you focus your attention on these truths, absorbing them into your mentality, you are meditating in the true sense of the word; because you are appropriating more of your Divinity, the Divine Presence that dwells in the deep-cell of all people. Meditation determines your destiny. We are always meditating. Your thoughts and feelings control your destiny.
Meditation is as real and as natural as digestion, assimilation, and breathing. In Las Vegas I met a woman who suffered from shock. She had lost her voice. The doctors could find no infection, no affliction of any kind in examining the throat and the vocal organs. At my suggestion, she began to practice what I call real meditation. Her son was coming home from Vietnam in a few weeks, and she sat still and quiet and imagined that she was embracing him and welcoming him home, saying all the things a mother would say. She did this for about ten minutes two or three times a day. She gave attention to a selected goal, an objective. At the end of two weeks her son came home, knocked at the door, and she welcomed him. She began to talk naturally. That’s real meditation. She gave attention to her voice. She gave attention to the fact that she was talking, to the fact that she was welcoming him. It was a mental and spiritual drama taking place in her own mind. The Lord is my shepherd. The Lord means God, the Living Spirit Almighty, in particular your awareness and knowledge of this Infinite Presence and Power within you.
The shepherd takes care of the sheep, and the Divine Power will take care of you. As you turn to this Indwelling Presence, Its nature is to respond to you. You are told: I shall not want. This means you will never want for evidence of the fact that you have chosen God as your shepherd. Shepherds watch over their sheep. They love them and care for them. They examine the field where they graze and eradicate locoweed, which would adversely affect the sheep. They lead them to the shade and guide them single file over the steep ravine to water, where they are refreshed. At night they examine their nostrils to see if there are any other needles or other irritants embedded therein. If so, they pluck them out and pour some soothing oil upon them. They examine their feet, also; and, if injured, they administer kindly to them with whatever medication or treatment is appropriate. Shepherds love their sheep.
All this is symbolic, of course, and very significant, indicating to all of us that if we choose God as our shepherd, and God is the Living Spirit within you, the Supreme Intelligence, the Life Principle. We will not want for any good thing if we choose the Supreme Intelligence as our guide and counselor. Before we get an answer to our prayer, we must first possess our desire in consciousness.
