“It is better to say only those things that serve people in some way. All things can be said in a way that is empowering and loving. Truly loving energy will always be felt. When your intent is to love and serve others and what you say comes from your heart, you will assist people in growing. There is always a higher truth, a way to say things that leaves other people feeling good about who they are. If you need to correct people’s behavior and give them feedback about how they can do better, learn to do it in a way that serves them and with the intent to make them feel good about who they are.
This does not mean their personalities are always going to like what you say. Sometimes the truth you communicate to others may not be comfortable to them at the personality level. If your communication comes from the heart and is given with the intent to serve, it is a gift that will contribute to others’ growth. Before you speak, ask yourself how what you plan to say will contribute to peoples’ lives.”
