THE EGO’S SNEAKY VERSION OF THE 23rd PSALM

Consider this adaptation of the famous 23rd Psalm by our ever wily and subversive ego:
 

The ego is my master; I shall not have
a peaceful thought of my own.
He maketh me to lie down on a thorny bed.
He leadeth me beside stormy and tormented waters.
He possesseth my soul and mindless allegiance.
He leadeth me on rock-strewn, circuitous paths
of hardship to glorify his name.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of shadowed illusions,
I will fear all evil and take everything personally.
For thou art with me in my chains of false security.
Thy threats and terrors grip and unsettle me.
Thou preparest a table before me laden
with toxic delights and crippling promises.
Thou anointest my head with a sign labeled “unconscious.”
My cup of worry runneth amuck.
Surely dissatisfactions and guilt shall accompany me
all the anxious days of my life.
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Ego for ever.

 

In contrast, here is the Higher Self’s love-filled version of this cherished Psalm:

 

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.
Psalm 23 (KJV)
