Laundry List Item 8: You only get to keep what you give away.

This is a laundry list item I am yet to understand. Something inside me tells me there is truth in this, but I don't quite get it yet.

If I give away an object, I don't get to keep it. It is gone. But I could be left with a feeling of generosity, of compassion, of caring. Depending upon how I give it of course.

If I give away my love, I am left with a feeling of connection and lightness.

It seems that I do not get to keep the thing that I give away, but potentially something better in its place.

You have stumped me with this one Sheldon. I may be too young and naive to grasp the depth of your insight.
