Three gates

July 26, 2010

What about speaking only after our words have managed to pass through three gates?

At the first gate we ask ourselves: are these words true? If so, we let them pass on; if not, back they go.

At the second gate we ask: are they necessary? If so, we let them pass on; if not, back they go.

At the last gate we ask: are they kind? If so, we speak; if not, back they go.
