I am sure if asked, we have all been guilty at some point in our lives of saying something inappropriate. Or of speaking impulsively, without thinking. For the majority of people I believe this is not done with any real intention of offending. But for some individuals, it can be a trait that they pride themselves in. One of speaking ‘plainly’, without using the filter of their minds to consider, if what they are about to say will hurt someone’s feelings, or give offense. Indeed, they may believe that it is a quality to be admired. I have often heard the expression used. “Well, people will always know where they stand with me, as I always speak my mind”.
The question I would ask you to consider is this. Is speaking your mind, or being blunt, without worrying about how what you say will be received by someone else. Something you would like to cultivate more in your life? It may be that you are someone who is not very confident.

When Mankind first walked on this earth, before there was religion, before there was fire; there was spiritual belief. To Early man, all life was a mystery; he lived off the land gathering in the spring hunting through the summer, gathering in the autumn, and hoping to survive the elements through the winter. They would express themselves with a primitive and natural curiosity about life and having no scientific explanations to confuse or block out their finely tuned instincts. They listened to and trusted their ‘gut instincts’ their intuition. For often it would save their lives. They never questioned it, they accepted it naturally and would often see ‘signs’ in the animal and natural world as confirmation.
However it is clear that their spiritual beliefs come from more then just a reverence for nature. It amounted to actually interacting with nature in a spiritual way. We have found evidence of this in items discovered that show that early man had evolved he could hear the spirit world and could communicate spiritually on a regular basis. It might be said that it was their harsh living conditions and circumstances that were responsible for this phenomenon to occur. As few modern men/women can comprehend or understand just how difficult life was then. Guidance and blessings were often sought and miracles were undoubtedly more commonplace. Early man was definitely more in tune with the spirit world and their souls then we are today.
