The sages say that we do not speak publicly about our far-reaching plans-
Try to be silent until your plan comes true. Our ideas are not only imperfect, but have a lot of weaknesses where it is easy to strike and destroy them.
The sages say that we do not speak publicly about our charity – it is a rarity in this world, and therefore it should be kept as the apple of the eye. Do not praise yourself for good deeds. Pride will immediately recognize it. He will take away all the kindness given for charity.
The sages recommend that we do not speak publicly about our asceticism (penance). Do not speak publicly about your limitations in diet, sexual relations, etc. Physical asceticism brings benefits only if it is combined with an emotional component.
The sages recommend that we do not speak publicly about our courage and heroism.
In life, someone gets external and someone internal challenges. External challenges are visible. That’s why people get rewards for them. Overcoming internal challenges no one notices. Therefore, no prizes are awarded.
The sages recommend that we do not speak publicly about our family problems.
And about your private life in general. Remember, the less you talk about the problems in your family, the stronger and more stable it will be.
The sages recommend that we do not use ugly words and pass on gossip and untruths about other people we hear during the day.
You can soil your shoes on the street. You can defile your consciousness and subconscious. The man, who returns home, and recounts all the nonsense he heard during the day, is no different from the man who entered the house and did not take off his shoes.
