The Mind and Heart

The mind,
Consciously or unconsciously,
Can harm others.

The heart
never harms anybody,
Even unconsciously.

In the mind,
Inspiring thoughts
Come and go.

In the heart,
Aspiring feelings
Grow and flow.

My mind,
How is it that
Everything always has to be
In your own way,
And why?

The narrowness-mind
I was.

The vastness-heart
I now am.

To transform our earth-planet,
Only one thing is needed:
Spirituality’s breath.
