The Esoteric Meaning of Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want:

All enlightened Beings address the same concept: there is only one God and Divine Being who is our Creator.

This magnificent Being, whom you call God, takes care of all of the needs of the souls who are on the journey back to the Light. When these souls turn their attention to this Being, they do not want for anything, for their needs, on all levels, are met.

 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:

 The color green is reserved for the fourth chakra within the human energy system. It represents the heart center. In humans, this center is the most powerful. It is also the one which is the most neglected by many. It is this center that hurts the easiest and is closed the fastest by many.

 When one connects his or her consciousness with God consciousness, and truly behaves on a higher level, that is when the soul experiences operating from the heart center. In this state, the pastures then become very fertile and green, and contain all the ingredients of the power that will be bestowed upon the individual.

 He leadeth me beside the still waters:

 It is in acceptance of the heart center as the true source of wisdom, and the behaviors related to states of higher consciousness, that one acquires the calmness for which so many on the planet hunger. For it is the quieting of the mind that follows. The mind gets the soul and heart into trouble when the mind is not at rest. When an individual is in a peaceful state of mind, which is likened to the still waters, it is then that the individual can do no battle. It is at this moment that the second step of the power is given to the soul, for it is at this moment that the individual obtains his or her own mastery.

He restoreth my soul:

 With the above ingredients in place, the soul is then in the position to undo all karmic debts. In this undoing, it prepares for entrance into the kingdom of the Father.

 He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake:

 When all karmic debts are released, the soul is free to be led on the path to higher kingdoms. On your planet you might call it Sainthood or the road of the Ascended Masters. We call it the fifth dimensional frequency, for it is in this state that individuals command the power to control the Liquid Light of the Great Central Sun.

 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: For Thou art with me:

 The Earth is likened to a valley, for the consciousness of humans is so low. It is considered by many in the higher realms to be the valley of shadows and illusions.

 Death is an illusion. Death is only the crossing over from one state of consciousness to another. It is the passing of one karmic responsibility on to another. It is the connection back to the etheric body that is the soul. It is actually life.

 On Earth, another illusion is that evil exists. We observe that your negativity and terror are reality to you. What you do not understand is that you have created these processes through the powers of your own mind.

Therefore, when one walks on the higher planes with God, the Creator of all, evil and death are no longer feared. When one's consciousness transcends these illusions, there is no longer a need to retain them.

 Since each creates his or her own reality through the power of the inner world, once negativity and fear are removed, those qualities will no longer manifest on the Earth plane or in an individual's environment. You really do have that much power, oh sisters and brothers of the universe.

 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:

 The One Creator of all does not discriminate. God loves all souls with the equal intensity of a father and mother. Therefore, regardless of what one has done on the illusionary path, God does not punish, but actually prepares a feast table for all of the children.

 Thou anointest my head with oil:

 We are all the chosen children of God. We are all delivered from our weaknesses. It is only the ego that keeps you separate from the Father. God anoints us all with the mark of the Risen Savior; it is your ego and choice as to whether you will accept or reject the appointment.

 My cup runneth over:

 In the initiation from God, all children are offered abundance. That is truly one of the rewards from the deliverance of all karmic debts. The universe is actually one of abundance and not one of poverty. It is only the consciousness of the human form that has limited abundance. It is your minds, or knowledge, that keeps you in poverty.

 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:

 In this state of connectedness, the meek will inherit the Earth. Comfort, happiness, and peace are the rewards that will follow for all the children of Light who choose to raise their consciousness.

 And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever:

 The Kingdom of God is eternal. There is no mistaking, the journey is an endless one.

 As each civilization and species evolves, there are always new challenges, adventures, hopes, and states of ecstasy to experience. When the humans of Earth learn to transcend their basic fears and limitations, then they too will be free to explore other dimensions of reality.

 The house of our Lord has many rooms. Each civilization and species is likened to another room. All are experiences and challenges just waiting in the future for the soul's next incarnations. All souls are on the path back to the Great Central Sun. It is only our experiences in the different areas of the universe that differ. In reality, all our journeys are one with the Creator of the ALL.

From the Book: WE, THE ARCTURIANS by Dr. NORMA MILANOVICH, with Betty Rice and Cynthia PloskiExcerpt from Chapter X, The Future

_______________________________________________________

"Edgar Cayce has said in his teachings that Arcturus is one of the most advanced civilizations in this galaxy.  It is the fifth-dimensional civilization that is a prototype of Earth's future.  Its energy works as an emotional, mental, and spiritual healer for humanity.  It is also an energy gateway through which humans pass during death and rebirth.  It functions as a way station for nonphysical consciousness to become accustomed to physicality. The Book of Knowledge: The Keys of Enoch describes it as the mid- way programming center used by the physical brotherhoods in this universe to govern the many rounds of experiments with "physicals" at this end of the galaxy.
Arcturus itself is the brightest star in the Bootes constellation, which is approximately thirty-six light years from Earth.
The Arcturians teach that the most fundamental ingredient for living in the fifth dimension is love.  Negativity, fear and guilt must be overcome and exchanged for love and light.
The Arcturians work in close connection with the ascended masters whom they call the Brotherhood of the All.  They also work closely with what they refer to as the Galactic Command. The Arcturians travel the universe in their starships, which are some of the most advanced in the entire universe.
One of the reasons Earth has not been attacked by warlike negative extraterrestrials has been those civilizations' fear of the advanced starships of the Arcturians.  Their ships are state-of-the-art technology, far beyond anything I have mentioned so far.  One of the starships circling the Earth is called the Starship Athena, after the Greek goddess."
