Before you speak today...

... ensure the following 3 factors are present:

~ Is it true?
~ Is it kind?
~ Is it necessary?

If all three do not apply simultaneously to what you
wish to verbalize, then it may be best to remain
silent.

Not an easy task, but makes the day more pleasant!

Peace to Everyone,

Peaceful Nomad

The problem, is these three things are different in everyones mind, which is what makes conflicts in the first place. But thanks a lot for just trying to make a good day!

The greatest kindness is to shatter someone's illusion, but most think somewhat cruel. Dreaminess is oft preferred to reality.

The proof is in the pudding.

I definately agree with shattering someone's illusion is kind. That is what the gurus do, they play tricks on the monks and get them to realise that they are the ones that are responsible for all experience they perceive. But what do you mean dreaminess is often preferred to reality? What is dreaminess, and what is reality?

I object to the 3rd question "is it necessary"

none of this conversation we have out here is necessary..


--------------------
Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

I agree. :grin:
Are you willing to comprimise that neccessity is relative?  I am.
