Phoenix in Flight

The Fall and Rise of the Phoenix, photo by S'zanne Reynolds

The Lord is the shepherd of my thoughts;
I shall not want for divine ideas.
He makes me rest in the awareness of my own divinity:
He leads me to the inner stillness.
He restores my soul to its inner purity:
He guides me in the right use of my powers and abilities.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of doubt,
I will fear no evil—for thou art with me;
Thy power and thy presence, they comfort me.
Thou preparest an unlimited blessing for me, in every situation:
Thou annointest my head with understanding;
My whole being is filled with the light of thy understanding.
Surely God’s ideas are mine all the days of my life:
And I shall dwell in this perfect awareness FOREVER.

unknown translation of Psalm 23
