Before you say anything….

A smart person knows what to say.

A wise person knows whether or not to say it.

by Roy T Bennett

So profound teaching

Before any words coming out from us, we need to understand the impact to others.

Am I bring happiness? Suffering? Helpful? Damaging?

Let your words be like flowers, always bring fragrance to surrounding…

When you are in negative emotions, remember not to say anything until you are back to peace.

Whatever you are saying might give very bad impact to others. The would will last for long even without wound.

Be mindful!!!

  1. I think it was Rumi who said “Before you speak let your words pass through these three gates: is it true; is it necessary; is it kind.”

    I love this saying. So true
