... using wise speech
Finding the voice.
How do you find your voice using wise speech?
Lead with presence
Come from curiosity
Focus on what matters.
Then do it with:
Observe first yourself and others
Express a feeling
Express a need
Make a request
Then there is the wise speech advice from The Buddha in “Right Speech” (third of the eightfold paths):
Speak the truth. Always. Nothing else.
Speak to help others, unite people, never to divide, never slander.
Speak kindly or not at all. Always.
Speak that has meaning. Or don’t
Speak in the right time.
He mentioned speech, but this is true for any expression at all times.
