Amgod - Psalm 23

"...So to describe myself in a scientific way, I must also describe my surroundings, which is a clumsy way getting around to the realization that you are the entire universe."
Alan Watts

~
During my absence in escapism, words I kept singing to myself over and over and over and over every day were "don't you know who you are?" in my native tongue like a mantra.

Psalm 23
(dedroidify version)

I am my own guide, I lack nothing.
Whatever I may encounter, I am at peace.
I return to myself: wherever I go, there I am.
Even in complete darkness, I can see:
I am that I am all that is;
I have faith in myself and my abilities.
I am provided for, even when confronted with opposites:
I am blessed; with abundance.
Bliss is mine forever, as I will always be myself.


(The sad tone stems from their amnesia)

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
I am my own guide, I lack nothing.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters.
Whatever I may encounter, I am at peace.
He restoreth my soul:
he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
I return to myself:
wherever I go, there I am.

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.
Even in complete darkness, I can see:
I am that I am all that is;
I have faith in myself and my abilities.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
I am provided for, even when confronted with opposites:
I am blessed; with abundance.

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.
Bliss is mine forever, as I will always be myself.

"But at any rate, the point is that God is what nobody admits to being, and everybody really is."
Alan Watts
~

Lend me your eyes I can change what you see
But your soul you must keep, totally free
Har har, har har, har har, har har

In these bodies we will live, in these bodies we will die
Where you invest your love, you invest your life

Awake my soul, awake my soul
Awake my soul
You were made to meet your maker
~

I will not fall
Once more I'm called
Time comes for all
Then dark is whole

But oh, my heart was flawed
I knew my weakness
So hold my hand
Subscribe me not to darkness

I will not speak of your sin
There is a way out for him
The mirror shows not
Your values are shot

But oh, my heart was flawed
I knew my weakness
So hold my hand
Subscribe me not to darkness

And I fall short

But oh, my heart was flawed
I knew my weakness
So hold my hand
Subscribe me not to darkness

"You are the eternal thing that comes and goes that appears - now as John Jones, now as Mary Smith, now as Betty Brown - and so it goes, forever and ever and ever."

Forever is a long, long time when you've lost your way.

Darling, what'cha gonna do now?
Now that you noticed it all went wrong
I've been, I've been thinking
That you don't know me any more
...
Don't let the sun be the one to change you baby
I wanna learn how to love, if I'm to know
Cause I wanna go where the people go
Cause I'm forever lost
Oh yeah, I'm forever lost
...
Darling, what'cha gonna do now?
Now that you've noticed
What you gonna do now?
Now that you know
