November 14 : Clear Communication

One way that we manifest our compassion and attitude towards others is by trying to be clear in our communications. This is sometimes difficult because in our minds, we are not very clear, even though we think we might be. However, later we realise that we are not. Let us try as much as possible, as a manifestation of compassion, to be clear in the sense of saying what we mean, of thinking things through before we speak, and when we are not clear, of acknowledging it and apologising afterwards. This is a way of cultivating transparency and being open, and showing our care and concern for other living beings.
