From another thread:
It isn't wrong speech to speak the truth at appropriate times with correct motivation, the Buddha said. It's also not wrong speech to warn people of potential dangers and pitfalls. In fact, in that context, the Buddha implied that silence can be considered "wrong speech".
Exactly so. Passive fuming is not 'silent'. Dharma platitudes that make ones snoozing cushion comfortable is getting us no nearer to buddhahoodiness ...
Speech can make us think in a non linear format
Speech can express and expose our silence.
Right Speech can and must make us well enough to hear. Strong enough to listen to our understanding and humble enough to speak to ants as our teachers and gods as our underlings ...
What say you dear Friends?
