Falling Down Past the Floor

By the way you brought me here,
It makes believe the best is yet to come and I don’t want to leave.

~Falling Down Past the Floor~
What is your religion?
What do you curse?
What do you give?
How do you display your love to those around you?
If you receive one hundred prayers how many do you give back?
When you must collect from the people, do you ever overcharge?
Is it all about your prosperity?
Or do you wish it to be about another?
Giving back and giving more than I want to give.
To stay the same or change my ways to fulfill your will, not mine. 
Giving till I am blue in the face.
Turning gifts to riches by the grace of love and tithe. 
Nothing is ours.
Nothing exists without Love.
Look past your pride and selfishness.
Look past your own eyes to see the others who need. 
When we go down, and hit the ground.
It is so hard to get back up.
When we go down past the floor.
It is so hard to give when we have nothing. 
If you have nothing to give,
Give more.
If you have nothing to give,
You have more than you think.
Give with a selfless heart.
Cleanse your mind and give understanding. 
Worshiping prosperity does not give you happiness.
Give and give even when it seems nothing is coming back.
What is your religion? 
Do your grasp on to what is not yours?
What is your religion?
Selflessness and faithfulness giving and blessing. 
What is your religion?
Is it what you hold onto and what you do not give back?
Nothing is ours, so give it away.
Blessings come, so give it back.
Nothing is ours, so give it away.
Blessings can come and light your way.
And it is our job not to let it placate the ego in the fray. 
But to continue to give to love and hold nothing back. 
What is your religion?
What do you believe?
What are you becoming?
For the way you give and the way you receive hold more truth than what you keep.
And where you stay.
