“Offer it Up”

You must have an empty cup my sister

You must have an empty cup

You have given to everyone but yourself and

Your cup is now empty

We are going to work on making sure that your cup remains full so that when you are giving, you give from your saucer. That is your overflow. Your excess. Never give from your cup because when your cup is empty, so are you. You can’t empty your cup and expect to remain whole.
