...devotion to truthful speech is a matter of taking our stand on reality rather than illusion...

Love this Larissa. Thank you. I’m thinking that perhaps this is where it can get tricky: one person’s reality may be another person illusion. And in hope I wonder, if we speak from our compassionate hearts, can reality and illusion find a connection?
Hi Piper - good point. I’m in no way any kind of Buddhist scholar! My sense was this passage was talking about one’s personal reality versus delusion, how we can develop the habit of ignoring things around us. It’s an interesting question you’re posing. I suppose we’re all connected.
