In the title of this post, I am paraphrasing from one of The Four Agreements (by Miguel Ruiz) – a book I read years ago.
A convesation this morning sparked my pondering – so here goes.
What if when speaking in our head, outloud, or with another, we only said that which we didn’t mind to have published for all to see? Think about it.
I am not talking about sensoring what comes our of our mouth but truly a deeper state of knowing that which we care enough to say even to ourselves in the privacy of our own thoughts.
At first, attempting to do this, I hear the chaos of loud chatter – words crowding and interrupting – competing and struggling to be heard. But with time, I hear the silence.
