Just listen to yourself.

The wonderful meditation teacher, Pema Chödrön, has often remarked that we need to pay attention to the interior "tone of voice" we use when talking to ourselves. It's very important to be gentle and not harsh.

Well, I noticed today as I was driving home that the Nazarene church on the corner of my street has this on the marquee:
Whispering soaks in;
yelling bounces off.
How true. How very true. (Love it!)
