Advice while Awake

When the occasion requires, speak mindfully.

Be timely, not untimely.
Be decisive, not confused.
Be gentle, not harsh.
Be generous, not miserly.
Be compassionate, not cruel.

Oh beloved friend, mindful of internal & external feelings, comprehend how few occasions ever require that a word even be spoken.

Thus the Great Way flows: no-thinking Openness, undifferentiated Silence.
