Is it necessary?

Before you speak, let your words pass through three gates.

At the first gate, ask yourself: 'Is it true?'

At the second gate, ask yourself: 'Is it necessary?'

At the third gate, ask yourself: 'Is it kind?'"

– Rumi

Speech is more powerful than simply getting a point across. It connects us with other humans and forges a relationship between ourselves and the outside world. So speak truth. Be kind. And share what is necessary.

Keeping my foot out of my mouth today, and hopefully every day.
