Is Silence Golden?

=0X Silence is golden but is it really? I am not sure! Is being silent about things that you feel that will make you happy hurt yourself? And is telling people what they want to hear so you just satisfy others not a good idea? Or is it?

Hi Livingitup, welcome to DS.

Im not sure silence is golden, but maybe stillness is?
From stillness you can find depth and perspective that cant be accessed otherwise, the mind will get in the way if we just use simply it.

I dont think being silent when words or truth need to be spoken is a good thing, truth should always out in my opinion...no matter what the consequences!

Not sure telling others what they want to hear is a good idea just to satisfy them either....i believe truth is better.

Do you?
