The leap perhaps the unknown yet to be created..

The unseen, unknown is often vastly different to the logical mind..

Yep, this is it.

Saying stop to one harming another. Love, compassion, empathy...expressions of those are the only examples I could think of where words are better than silence. Words that uplift, that help others. Words that make others lives better.

Obviously it depends on the circumstances, sometimes silence is best especially if we are angry and could say words that hurt others as well as ourselves .

On other occasions we are not attuned to the words of others because we are concentrating more on what we personally want to reply and instead we are hearing their words but not listening.

If we don't listen silence is best....



'Love, compassion, empathy'

Are actions not words imo....


A meaningful silence is always better than meaningless words.....
