“Wait ’til your father gets home!” Every Mother, Everywhere, Forever
((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))
“I shouldn’t have said that.”
“I wish you wouldn’t have said that.”
“Don’t say anything!”
The King of Swords KNOWS when to keep his mouth shut – although he would likely say he was keeping his own counsel – and he cautions us to do the same.
Heed his warnings:
- Trust but verify.
- Reserve judgement.
- Do your own research – verify your own sources.
- Do not allow yourself to be sucked into the drama of others.
- If you must speak, listen intently first – feel free to makes notes! – and think twice before speaking once.
- Ask yourself: does speaking do more good than harm? If not, consider you may be better off keeping it to yourself.
Silence can be difficult sometimes but those are usually the times when it is most important. If you struggle with maintaining silence, absent yourself from the immediate situation – if you feel compelled to participate for all the right reason, return prepared.
Remember, silence can be golden.
