I saw this on a poster several years ago and it stuck with me. I often think about it, and though my greatest desire is to be helpful, I do forget sometimes, and I state some opinion, or thought, without THINKing first about my intention.
So often we speak in a reactionary way without considering the effect our words have on others. This is especially true if you watch TV or get information via social media. There isn’t much THINKing going on.
When I actually stop for a moment and consider what my intention is before I speak, I find that either I say nothing, or my words come from a place of love and alignment. If it isn’t True, Helpful, Inspiring, Necessary, or Kind, it would be best left unsaid.
I THINK you are thoughtful and brilliant!
