Wehave to be something before we can talk to other people. If not,it's empty talk, nobody will listen. Even though they might listen,but inside they feel this is not true.
Mostpeople can only criticize and they cannot contribute. That iswhere they go wrong. I make criticism as well as contributions.Only in this way is a comment useful! What is the use of criticismonly? Anyone can make one. Using your month to speak is the simplestthing to do.
Whatever we say, our brains record. With allthe "It's lousy, no good, too expensive!", no freshinformation can fit in. Continuing to be negative, we get lowerand lower. The more negative we are, the worse off we become.We recite our own negative mantra to curse ourselves. That iswhy it is bothersome to be your teacher. I am affected and collecta lot of karma, because everyday you keep using the negative powerand qualities for me to hear or see.
For example, when I ask on the phone if someoneis in, you could say, "Oh! Master, she is not here. Can Iask her to call You back later? Is there anything I can do forYou or for her?" Is that not better than simply saying, "She'snot here!" (stop dead) or "She went to the toilet."(stop dead here too)?
