Think Before You Speak

BuddhaIn this last week of Oprah and Deepak Chopra’s 21-day Meditation challenge, I thought today’s message, based in Buddhism, was worth sharing and pondering:

Think Before You Speak

“Before you speak, ask yourself these four questions:

  1. Is what I’m about to say kind?
  2. It is true?
  3. Is it necessary?
  4. Does it improve upon the silence?

If you can answer yes to all four questions, then your words will resonate with authenticity and love.”

If you are new to meditation, or would like to get back into the habit of daily meditation, the Oprah & Deepak meditations are a great place to start. They are short, 10-15 minute guided mediations. Oprah & Deepak often run free 21-day online meditations, or you can purchase previous meditation sets via their website.

We try to start each day by doing one of their meditations, which helps set the tone for the day and gives you a “theme” to think about as you go about your day. Have a lovely day!
