Right Speech

Right Speech

Right Speech should represent the truth,
and should inspire self-confidence, joy, and hope.

Right speech should not harm.
Non-harming includes being constant, kind (not cruel),
and not exaggerating or embellishing.

Right speech may be speechless
sharing joy, compassion and loving kindness
through dharma, and paradox.

Deep listening should follow,
leading after complete expression
to silence, and peace.
