Right Speech



Speak truth only.

Say something original every time you speak.

Do not repeat the words of others or of yourself.

That means that preaching someone else's nonsense online or plagiarizing someone else's writing for whatever reason, be it a better grade on a test or essay, or to sound like me, does not make you an enlightened being.

Nothing does.

As long as we are here, we are not in Nirvana.

What is Nirvana?

Please don't ever ask or care what Nirvana is. And let me explain why. If there is a G-d (and I believe there is), then being good with the expectation of gaining entry to heaven is actually being bad; so a little humility served us well when thinking of the benefits of our actions rather than just being good.

Simply understand where you are and why we are all here. Each one of us had something to learn that we seem to think we already know.

This is hell. Not figuratively; not metaphorically; literally, the breeding grounds of egos and diseases.

Accept it. Don't have to like it, but complaints aren't answered, so just acceptance, nothing else.

Doesn't have to be though. You can work on improving yourself and reducing desires, attachments, and self-serving egos.

They say life is what you make of it. That's a positive outlook. Keep positive, regardless of any negativity you feel, perceive, or experience.
