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’.

Mircea Mocanu

By isolating components we normalise and destress concepts. If observing the senses, the body, builds a useful base of learning to sit, observing the mind is less usual. For infinite reasons, mainly trying to stop the fire with gas. When there is less doing, there is more being. As deeply conditioned being, aspiration, dedication, study, when taken personally and not in an abstract way, the letting go works. Taken personally as in finding meaning to own causality, finding the way to care, outside culture or norms, but inside the person. Just like a mind worker.
