'ALL WORDS HAVE WEIGHT' !!

**************************************************************************************************

“WORTHY PERSONS DESERVE TO BE CALLED SO BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT CARRIED AWAY BY THE EIGHT WINDS: PROSPERITY, DECLINE, DISGRACE, HONOUR, PRISE, CENSURE, SUFFERING, AND PLEASURE. THEY ARE NEITHER ELATED BY PROSPERITY NOR GRIEVED BY DECLINE.”
[extract from the Gosho/letter ‘The Eight Winds’ written by Nichiren Daishonin in the third year of Kenji: 1277 Japan]

'ALL WORDS HAVE WEIGHT'
someone just reminded me in a post... thank you!!

What does matter to me personally is always the intention behind the words.

Going behind the facade of politeness, rudeness, angry language, soft spoken words, moralities, praise: to transcend the form sometime is necessary in order to see the intention or 'self' behind words. Then, that makes them more or less valuable for me (as you can never really know if people are doing what they are preaching or are what they say they are… particularly in cyberspace)

To be able to grasp that intention is not always easy. Sometime is clear like the sun... sometime is hidden very carefully (whether intentionally, as a necessity, or not), and in the last case more words and observations are necessary before we can perceive it ... so we can talk, provoke, challenge, questioning, comment, etc... in order to clearly see that intention. So, yes... discourse and debate is necessarily the only thing that characterise humanity. The human voice is conductive of life force and regenerative or degenerative power.

Fighting instead, is potentially ‘common’ to all form of life whether instinctively; dignified/undignified; as basic life condition/tendency; or as an extreme necessity for survival (which is also important to recognise in its nature, in its different forms, as it is crucial sometime in helping to understand the 'self core' of a being).

So communication is the key to get closer to people heart and mind and for that reason I personally think that when words are spoken they always bring repercussions (in either constructive or destructive forms). So not for everyone (or at all time), words are used here on Xmatch … to achieve personal gains or power/recognition… ultimately we are all influencing each other and create waves of repercussions more or less valuable (but that is a subjective judgment).

Everyone (individuals, groups, states, organisations, etc..) is responsible and owns the right to express their values and feelings and thoughts; as also is responsible for the kind of reactions, conclusions and realities their words will bring about.

It's strictly cause and effect.
[There is no morality regulating ‘cause and effect’… and as such makes it a universal law!]

So keep true to yourself and honest with your intention… lets not stop ourselves communicating just because someone else will tell us that we have no skills enough to do it.. or that what we saying are shallow and/or morally wrong… or that we do not know really enough to speak. It is always our right to be… but lets remember it is also our responsibility too.

So when speaking out be bold… be proud.. be sincere… and be responsible to your self… you know deeply when you need to speak up and when is not really necessary or the right time to do it. It is all about learning who we are and expand our life.. and by the way … observing (listening) is also part of communicating your intention too…

Without a ‘mirror’ we can never see our self.
Without dialogue, challenges and discourse, we can never truly see our mind.
Without sincerity, we can never truly see our heart.
