Right speech can change the world.
Hello, wonderful Open Heart Project. I hope you are well and enjoying this series of videos on foundational Buddhist teachings. Right View is here and Right Intention is here in case you want to review.
Today’s talk is about the third step on the noble eightfold path: Right Speech. Spoiler alert: this one can save the world. I’m not even kidding. In this talk, I offer some thoughts on the four things that comprise wrong speech and the six things we can do instead. I’m not going to lie: these are not easy. At first. But because they all depend on introducing a tiny gap between what you think and what you say, with the support of a consistent meditation practice, it gets easier and easier.
Thoughts? Love to hear them.
Much love, Susan
