As Buddhists, we believe that Right Speech takes priority over Free Speech. Put simply, Right Speech means abstaining from gossip and talk which is false, malicious, or harsh. Write only what you believe to be true and relevant, voicing your opinion with kindness and patience. Avoid worldly, partisan, or discriminatory topics and remarks that are patriarchal, misogynist, sexist, racist, anti-semitic, pro-nazi, bio essentialist, xenophobic, transphobic, homophobic or any other kind of hateful views even if such advocacy is couched in terms of ‘discussing the texts’ or ‘maintaining tradition’.

Hi Manita, thank u for replying.
I can make the (hart) connection with what u are saying. Except the fact that “we” only have our own life in the preset. The letting go of the “I” in meditation and the mantra “for other, for others, for others” helped me early in life to let go of “Me”.
Now – when I speak, I give my few and that’s always to discussed, cause I am a student.
I can say – much more is going on in the present moment then just “my life”. For me – in the present moment I am connected to so much more then what I can see and know now.

Thank you for your wish andenjoy your weekend as well!
