In ancient text it is written, “if thy hand offends, cut if off.” This did not mean that if you caught someone stealing something, you should lop his hand off at the wrist. “Thy hand” meant “thy speech.” If you caught yourself speaking offensively then you should “cut it off” – you should stop speaking immediately.
Cutting off thy speech when one is whining, blaming, criticizing or shaming is a great idea. The mind of man becomes the mouth of man; feed the mind only the best and let the mouth speak the rest.
It’s for your own benefit to condemneth not with with your thoughts or your speech. The vibration you create when you condemn, radiates outwardly, and eventually it objectifies physically. It comes back to visit you.
Do you want your life experiences to be good and beautiful? Then make whatsoever thoughts that are pure and just and lovely, worthy of your attention. Don’t take this advice too lightly. It is now accepted universally by pretty much everyone – poets and scientists alike – that destiny and fate, good fortune and bad fortune, luck and happenstance are all euphemisms for: “the consequence of your thinking and speaking.”
Your thoughts and words today are previews of tomorrows coming attractions.
