2024-03-16 What Would the Buddha Say? Peaceful Communication Skills for Difficult Times Part 2 55:58
Some of the hardest times to come up with the right words and the right attitude are when the topic at hand is really hot. Maybe it is when we feel there is something very important at stake. Maybe it is when something seems very wrong in the world: war, political strife, corruption, injustice. How can we use Right Speech in such circumstances? How can we express ourselves in ways that are truthful but do not widen the divide. How can we promote peace and mutual respect? How can we relate to others with very different views and values with honesty and skill? These are some of the areas we will explore, working with personal as well as societal examples. And, we will base our conversation on the Buddha's words and advice.
