Rebbe Nachman of Breslov taught…
|Not every word is really called a word. Because a word that is not heard and accepted can hardly be called speech.|
(Likutey Moharan I:29)
What does this mean to me?
|Rebbe Nachman teaches that it is the goodness that is within every word that makes it heard and acceptable to others. Everyone is naturally drawn to goodness; when a word is infused with good, it is attractive as a matter of course. How, then, do we make sure that our words are filled with goodness? By making sure that we speak from da’at, with conscious awareness of G-d.|
|Dear G-d, bring me peace of mind |
To choose wisely what I say,
And bring goodness into my words
So that they are heard and acceptable.
Please be there with me
Whenever I speak.
Then everything I say
Will be blessed by You.
