God commands praise, not because He needs praise, but because we need to praise. “The high praises of God” are vengeance upon the tyranny of the ego. My ego is the proud king that runs around my soul demanding, “No singing!” Adam didn’t praise God, for Adam didn’t know the Good. He took knowledge of the Good, lost the Good, and began to know the Good. Jesus Christ crucified, and risen from the dead, is the revelation of the Good, God’s vengeance upon the ego, and the door to the New Creation. In the Eternal and New Creation, everything that breathes praises the Lord. “Let everything that breathes praise the Lord”. . . or trap yourself in outer darkness.
