The 4 Questions to Ask Yourself Before You Speak to Someone

Sep 25, 2020
Teacher wisdom from Scott Schwenk: 

Our words are powerful. 

They can lift yourself and others up, or they can fortify our inner critic and judgments. A good practice before you speak to someone is to filter your words through what spiritual teacher Scott Schwenk called "the four gatekeepers of right speech." By doing so, you ensure that what you say and share is kind, true, beneficial, and necessary.
