    Truthfulness: Three Gateways of Speech

    by Tim Geil | Jul 27, 2017

    Truthfulness is an expression of our wisdom and aligns our actions with our understanding. This talk explores three gateways of wise speech: Is it true? Is it beneficial? Is the timing right? Truth is seen as relative to the arising of each moment. Being beneficial leads to the end of suffering, in particular by loosening identification. The proper timing considers the vulnerability and open heartedness of the speaker, and the receptivity of the listener.
