The Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 17, verse 15:

“Constantly level, Arjuna, and present it in as pleasant a means as possible. If you can not do that, continue to be silent. If something definitely needs to be stated you must uphold the truth, but find a means to do it that’s gentle and obliging.

“Don’t harmed others through severe words. Words can be more uncomfortable than physical violence, and the hurt lasts longer. Words meant to excite negativity are an act of violence, reject such words …

We’ve two sides of our tongue-physically we’ve the bottom and the top, but metaphorically talking we’ve two sides too … the side of the tongue which begins from all-time low, from a dark and bleak place that never ever sees the bright of day and the top side which gets a rejuvenating breeze each time the mouth opens and is fulled of light.

How incredibly hazardous our tongue can be and on the other hand what a true blessing it can bring. Sometimes intentionally we utilize our tongue to hurt others by forming harmful words. We tear individuals down and dissuade them. Unfortunately, we can likewise do the exact same damages unintentionally.

Why’s it so easy to state something painful? And why’s it even easier to state something harsh to those that are dearest to us? Exactly what does our ego receive from harming others? And how does this mirror the words we talk to ourselves during our inner dialogue?

We’ve all heard the stating, “sticks and stones could break my bones however words will never harm me.”Anybody who’d something mean said to them will tell you that this statement is entirely untrue. Words can leave marks deeper than physical cuts.

On the contrary, we’ve also been encouraged by words. We make use of these boosting words as a comparison to the adverse side of the tongue.

Simply put, Our words can hurt or they can heal.

You could’ve heard someone state, “I speak my mind” in justification to why they said painful, blunt, and obtrusive words. A preferred expression, nevertheless it misses the mark onto the reason behind the words they picked and only secures the confidence, convincing themselves they’ve been honest and ought to make no apologies. ‘Speaking my mind’ is a lazy way of expressing that your tongue blurted out your existing emotions without looking within yourself. In any case, we yogis know that the mind is very volatile, ranging from happiness to temper, and can not possibly reach the root of how we’re really feeling, and exactly what we’d like to state.

Our words typically come from a rash and unpredictable location which is why they’ve the potency to do a lot damages. Our tongue, like a cigarette thrown away of a vehicle window, has the power to light a significant forest fire and damage anything in its path.

I propose we begin to speak from the heart rather of our minds. When one talks from the heart they’ve put in the time to look within and ask, why. Why do I feel in this manner? With this concept we can acknowledge and honor our feelings and begin to talk with honest truth, self-respect, understanding, and goodwill.

Let our speech constantly be seasoned with grace, that our mouth be utilized for recovery, reassuring, kindness and hope. I hope all of us can review our words. Let your heart speak and the tongue be polished.
