The Universe within points upwards

UV 495/10,000 Psalm 103 v 1 The Universe within points upwards Psa 103:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. In this familiar Psalm, David is commanding his own soul to praise and bless the Lord. It is not natural for our being or our soul to praise the Lord. It requires an act of will and a conscious command from our minds to our inner being to praise and acknowledge God. In fact, I got the idea of using self- command in the thought process that I teach called Eqthinking or Equilibrium Thinking, instead of suggestion as in auto-suggestion inspired by this Word. The words, “ all that is within me” signifies the entire universe of our dreams, desires, goals, thoughts, hopes, plans, emotions, abilities, weaknesses, will, memories, imagination or all that constitutes our spirit, mind and bodies. We need to acknowledge the Creator Lord, the Redeemeer Lord in all these ways and always. The word bless implies to be thankful, grateful and desiring the increase or health or happiness or well being of that which we bless. But, how can mortal, sinful man bless an all knowing, all powerful, self-sufficient holy Being? The power to bless is a divine unction or anointing. It is bestowing on others what belongs to God. When we bless His holy Name, we are praying for the restoration of that which belongs to God back to Him in our fallen state and our fallen world. We are commanding all that is within us in spirit, mind and bodies to point back to the Creator, to bring glory, dominion and power to Him. In blessing His Name, we are blessed with all that His Name signifies. Prateep V Philip
