        To expand on Emerson’s quote, cordial speech, which proceeds cordial intention, begins within one’s thoughts. The rest is a domino effect.

        Mann’s words are a great reminder that awareness is the most basic “ingredient” that regards each moment as sacred. Awareness makes meaning easier to realize and resistance easier to release.

          You could call it non-violence of mind, harmony of thought. Thank you for your kind thoughts and gentle speech!

      “Another useless function is talk, we talk too much. We talk and talk and talk, and we never really notice it. Generally we think we talk very little, much too little, but particularly those people who talk most think that they never talk. This is a very useful subject for watching. You will see how your day passes, how many mechanical things you say in certain conditions, how many other mechanical things in other conditions. Or you will notice that you just talk and talk because it gives you pleasure, or fills your time. It is necessary to watch it and stop at least some of this unnecessary talk. Talk, imagination, lying and expressing negative emotions. are in fact our chief functions.”

      – P.D. Ouspensky, The Fourth Way (a record of talks and answers to questions based on the teaching of G.I. Gurdjieff)

      This is the first time I’ve come across this proverb. It’s profound and the following comes to mind. Excessive speech with our peers and excessive inner monologue creates a cloud that blurs intuitive knowing. This cloud is the antithesis of silence. Intuitive knowing is most accessible in silence and it’s the safeguard against choices that do not serve us.
