Most of us have been hurt by the words or actions of others. This can happen in any of our beloved communities. Close your eyes and breathe deeply. Focus on a time when you were hurt by another's words or actions. How had you felt about this person before the hurtful words or actions? How did you feel about the person after the hurt?

From there, consider: What does it take to transform your hurting heart? How can understanding others better help take us from hurt to acceptance? As you breathe, feel love surrounding you. Accept the healing power of breath.
