Whatever our hands touch -
We leave fingerprints!

On walls, on furniture
On doorknobs, dishes, books.

There's no escape.
As we touch we leave our identity.

Wherever I go today
Help me leave heartprints!

Heartprints of compassion
Of understanding and love.

Heartprints of kindness
And genuine concern.

May my heart touch a lonely neighbor
Or a runaway daughter

Or an anxious mother
Or perhaps an aged grandfather.

Send me out today
To leave heartprints.

And if someone should say,
'I felt your touch,'

May they also feel the love
That is deep inside my heart.

A wise and understanding heart does not repay a hurt with a hurt.

In doing so, the heart is diminished...

Fissures form...

Love leaks out...

Every pain given in return for one received, changes the contents of the heart.

It is no longer defined by love, wisdom and understanding.

It is redefined by the bearers of hurt and hate, pain and prejudice, meanness and madness, sorrow and sadness.

You give away control of your very own heart.

I cleanse myself of
all selfishness, resentment, critical feelings

for my fellow beings,self-condemnation
and misinterpretation of my life experiences

I bathe myself in
generosity, appreciation, praiseand gratitude

for my fellow beings,self-acceptance
and enlightened understanding of my life experiences.
