Way of true action

Way of true action

If by study, enquiry or thought, we have learned the truth, we should then put it into practice in both our speech and action. Let what we say be truth and what we do discreet. Regulate the emotions, and suppress anger and selfish desires. Shake off evil and cling onto good. Discovering our faults, let us not hesitate to correct them. Towards others let us be considerate. All this is way of true action… Without putting what we have learned into practice, it bears no fruit.

~ Kaibara Ekken, Japanese Sage
