What are the benefits of the correct use of the word?

Answer from the V.M. Samael Aun Weor.

To talk when one should keep silence is as bad as keeping silence when one should talk.

There are times when talking is a crime and there are times when silence is another crime. There are criminal silences and also infamous words. One should talk when he should and be silent when he should be silent. One should achieve in oneself the perfection of the verb. One should achieve in oneself, the wisdom of the verb.

People have lost notion of sincerity. Nowadays, human words do not carry the substance of sincerity and people suffer due to the lack of sincerity. Today, human words are full of falsehood and hypocrisy.

Answer from the Magazine "The Wisdom of the Being".

Every word has its consequences and brings well-being or misfortune to those who speak them, therefore rumors, slander, malicious criticism, judging others, insults, etc., are foolish, since the dire consequences from each one they will return to their author, bringing misfortune and suffering.

Words in today's society no longer carry sincerity and, on the contrary, they are generally empty or full of hypocrisy, for this reason every day more and more contracts and legal entanglements are necessary since we are neither capable nor responsible for complying with the minimum agreements, or the word pawned, filling the world with pain and bitterness.

All this points to the urgency of purifying and perfecting our use of the word, and filling them with sincerity, harmony and love towards our fellow men in order to build the foundations of a better environment around us, better and more lasting relationships, as well as the possibility of a better spiritual development, by the force and forcefulness of our verb, for example, when practicing the mantras for the purpose that they are required. The use of our verb in the day to day is closely linked with its use on the spiritual path.
