What do you and I need to give away?

Updated: Apr 1

My meditation today.

What do you and I hold on to that we should give away? Material things? Stuff? Emotional pain? Memories that haunt us? When we give it away who should we give it to? That pain and trauma we hold on to should be given to the ultimate transformer. I call this transformer Love and follow the path of Jesus to be in connection. The good things we have too much of should be given to those who don’t have enough.

Here is the song that prompted this meditation.

Red Hot Chili Peppers – Give It Away

What I’ve got you’ve got to give it to your mama What I’ve got you’ve got to give it to your pappa What I’ve got you’ve got to give it to your daughter You do a little dance and then you drink a little water

What I’ve got you’ve got to get it put it in you What I’ve got you’ve got to get it put it in you What I’ve got you’ve got to get it put it in you Reeling with the feeling don’t stop continue

Realize I don’t want to be a miser Confide with sly you’ll be the wiser Young blood is the lovin’ upriser How come everybody want to keep it like the kaiser

[Chorus]

Give it away give it away give it away now Give it away give it away give it away now Give it away give it away give it away now

I can’t tell if I’m a kingpin or a pauper Greedy little people in a sea of distress Keep your more to receive your less Unimpressed by material excess Love is free love me say hell yes

I’m a low brow but I rock a little know how No time for the piggies or the hoosegow Get smart get down with the pow wow Never been a better time than right now

Bob Marley poet and a prophet Bob Marley taught me how to off it Bob Marley walkin’ like he talk it Goodness me can’t you see I’m gonna cough it

[Chorus]

Lucky me swimmin’ in my ability Dancin’ down on life with agility Come and drink it up from my fertility Blessed with a bucket of lucky mobility

My mom I love her ’cause she love me Long gone are the times when she scrub me Feelin’ good my brother gonna hug me Drink my juice young love chug-a-lug me

There’s a river born to be a giver Keep you warm won’t let you shiver His heart is never gonna wither Come on everybody time to deliver

[Chorus]

What I’ve got you’ve got to give it to your mama What I’ve got you’ve got to give it to your pappa What I’ve got you’ve got to give it to your daughter You do a little dance and then you drink a little water
