Beautiful morning light, accompany you to read.
watch your mouth
there is such a story:
A student of Socrates hurriedly found him and said, "Sir, I have something to tell you."
Socrates quickly interrupted him and said, "have you gone through three sieves?"
the student shook his head in confusion. Socrates said, "is it true that the first sieve is this?"
the student bowed his head in shame and said, "I heard this on the street. I can't guarantee the truth."
Socrates went on to say, "the second sieve is what you say is well-intentioned?"
the student was very ashamed and said gloomily, "No, on the contrary."
is it really important that Socrates mentioned the third sieve? The student said, "it's not really important."
Socrates mused: "since it is not important, the words are not well-intentioned, and you cannot guarantee their authenticity, you can't say them at will."

the Analects of Confucius says: "if you listen to Taoism, you will abandon virtue."
it is immoral and spurned to spread hearsay at will.
most of the time, the trouble we have is the source of some unwarranted language, and the two words that hurt people the most are the language.
the power of language is like a virus, which is inconspicuous at first glance, but is actually fatal.
born between heaven and earth, you should learn to be cautious in your words and deeds and don't say nonsense what you shouldn't say.
learn to "look at others' strengths, help others' difficulties, remember others' advantages", do not judge others at will, do not denigrate others behind their backs, only by keeping your mouth shut can you fix your own heart.
mind your own business
some people say, "there are only three things in the world, my own business, other people's business, and God's business."
many people are unhappy because they like to worry about other people's things, worry about God's things, but can't do their own things well.
"Zhuangzi Ying Emperor" tells such a story: there are two emperors in the South and North Seas. They often visit the central emperors' homes. The Chinese and British emperors, named Chao, are very hospitable and often entertain them warmly.
in this way, the two well-intentioned emperors helped KAOS chisel out the seven tricks, but KAOS died on the spot.
in the constant words of awakening the World, it is said: "if you don't mind your own business, don't talk hard if you don't speculate." It's best not to interfere in things that have nothing to do with you, otherwise it's easy to get into trouble.
in this life, you only need to take care of three things: do your own business and be your own dignitary; don't mind other people's affairs and be an outsider; don't worry about the things of God and be an optimist.
mind your own business and take care of yourself is the best way to practice.
the essence of all things in the world comes from their own heart. If the heart is clear, everything is fine, and if the heart is full of haze, everything will change.
therefore, instead of blaming the world, it is better to change yourself.
once upon a time, there was a Zen master who found that his little apprentice was very confused, he could not pour tea well, and he could not treat guests well.
so he asked, "what do you want to learn?"
the little apprentice said, "I want to be a great Zen master around."
the Zen master said with a smile, "if you can't even treat guests and pour water well, how can you become a great Zen master?" If you want to manage others, you must first manage yourself, do a good job in the present, and become more and more sophisticated. "
the same is true of life. If you think too much, you will only get confused. It is better to simply do what you should do right now.
as the saying goes, "if the heart does not move, what can the wind do?"
define your goals and strengthen your heart. Even if there are thousands of voices in the world, what does it have to do with you?
Life is a spiritual practice. Only on the way of spiritual practice can we constantly improve and sharpen ourselves.
this kind of life can go farther and farther, more and more smoothly!
