2020/10/23 正語之1——有益之書多讀,心寬體胖。無用之言莫談,身修性養。南海古佛慈語:出口要合乎人情義理,「念頭」就是起步;如果心念不好,人生必定散漫無章。生活難免圍繞著令人煩憂焦慮的事,但不能隨口怨天尤人,那是損己福慧啊!言好心好劫就少,語惡心毒難必擾!當你發出慈悲心時,你的行為、言語皆善。諸賢當慎思!漌記,修道人講話不可以太自大,你太自大就會得罪人;或許你自己沒有感覺,可是在一旁的人都聽不下去了,人家認為你這個人太驕傲,不懂得謙虛,就不會喜歡你,不會靠近你。所以説,愈謙虛的人,愈能獲得大眾的喜愛。自古聖佛哪個不謙虛?沒有一個求教求學的人儘說:「這些我都懂了,不用學了。」自古君子無德怨自修,小人儘怨別人的不好。

正語之 (1)

Positive speech

Nurture optimism by reading helpful books; cultivate character by speaking less gossip

To speak in a human sense, "thought" is the start; If the mind is not good, life must be rambling.

生活難免圍繞著令人煩憂焦慮的事, 但不能隨口怨天尤人,那是損己福慧啊!
Life inevitably revolves around worrying and anxiety, but do not rampantly blame heaven or other people, as that will diminish our fortune.

言好心好劫就少,語惡心毒難必擾! 當你發出慈悲心時,你的行為、言語皆善。諸賢當慎思!謹記!
Speak good words and have a good heart can reduce disasters, whereas speaking bad and having a heart of hatred will lead to conflict! When you have compassion, your behavior and speech is full of kindness. Be careful always and remember it well!

A man who practices Tao can't speak too arrogantly; you will offend a man if you are too egoistic. Maybe you don't feel it yourself, but others can't bare listening to you.

人家認為你這個人太驕傲, 不懂得謙虛,就不會喜歡你, 不會靠近你。
People think you are too proud, do not know how to be modest, will not like you, and will not be close to you.

So people that are more modest, the more popular they are. Since ancient times, which sage or bodhisattvas was not modest?

It is never heard of a man who was taught and studied always said, " I understand all of these; I don't have to learn it." Since ancient times, gentlemen have blamed themselves for all mistakes, and little man blames others for their mistakes.

Positive Language

蘇格拉底說:「天予人兩耳兩目, 但只有一口,欲使其多見多聞 而少語言。」
Socrates said: " God gives people two ears and two eyes, But only one mouth, it means that we should see and listen more but talk less."

Morality teaches people to speak truthfully, not to be arrogant, not to pervert the facts, not to provoke discord, not to tell lies, not to verbally abuse others,

不惡意批評,不蓄意誹謗,出言吐語, 都要合乎道德觀。
Do not criticize maliciously, do not deliberately slander, and what we speak out must be moral

Language has the greatest relationship to life, the maintenance of emotions between people, the transmission of will, and the exchange of ideas, all rely on language as a medium

古人說:「一言興邦,一言喪邦」, 豈可不慎。
The ancients said: " One word makes a country prosperous, one word makes it collapsed" how can it be careless?


1. When you get along with others, you should speak softly in the "voice" Smile and be gentle on the "face"

2. Good words warm people's hearts in winter, bad words hurt people's hearts and make them feel cold even in June .

3. Three famous sayings about Jews doing business:

1. 不會笑,不要開店。
1. Not being able to laugh, don't open a shop.

2. 不會讚美,不要說話。
2. Not being able to praise, don't talk.

3. 不會說故事,不要銷售。
3. Not being able to tell stories, don't sell.
