Morning Poem, Meditation, Mantra: Jamila Woods’ ‘Holy’

(Video link here.)  We find Jamila Woods Holy a lovely day to orient the day. (And we love her happily waking up hair…)

Give me today my daily bread
Help me to walk alone ahead
Though I walk through the darkest valley I will fear no love
Oh my smile my mind reassure me I don’t need no one

[Chorus]

Woke up this morning with my mind set on loving me
With my mind set on loving me
Woke up this morning with my mind set on loving me
With my mind set on loving me
I’m not lonely, I’m alone
And I’m holy by my own
I’m not lonely, I’m alone
And I’m holy by my own

[Bridge 2x]
Ye, the bad days may come
The lover may leave
The winter may not
Hey, the map of your palms
The temple you be
You’re all that you got

Though I walk through the darkest valley I will fear no love
Oh my smile my mind reassure me I don’t need no one

[Chorus]

My cup is full up, what I got is enough
Nobody completes me, don’t mess with my stuff
My cup is full up, what I got is enough

Nobody completes me, don’t mess with my love
Surely, surely, surely, surely goodness and mercy
Shall follow me
Shall follow me
Shall follow me

    ahhh…,
    the ‘one thing’ that unites
    ALL of Humanity….
    our struggles with lonliness.

    ….the greatest reason,
    to simply smile with ‘stranger’.
    understanding.
    solidarity.
