Episode 19 – Why You Should Learn to STFU

Podcast Transcript

Snippet (00:01):

You are doing yourself a disservice when you say something, when you don’t have a fully formed, mature thought of that topic or a subject, allow yourself to think it through just because you heard it on so and so does not mean you know what the f&#k you are talking about.

Intro Music (00:19):

Tommy P. (00:37):

Good morning, good afternoon, and good evening. Welcome to Under the Bodhi Tree with Tommy P. Today, we’re going to talk about how and why you should shut your mouth. And today I’m going to implement something new I would like to do with every episode. And that is swear word of the day. And I’m going to try to use the swear word within the podcast three or five times or whatever, and I encourage you to do the same in your own life. So the swear word of the day is cumbubble. But before we even start, I would like to give gratitude to this Herman Miller chair that I bought for $30. And it’s worth over 550 motherf&#king dollars. All right. So let’s get right into it. No commercial, no cumbubble nothing.

Four Reason to Shut the F&^k Up(01:38):

My friends. Do you ever find yourself flying off the handle with your mouth, with the lowest hole in your head? Well, today I’m going to share with you four reasons on why you should shut the f&#k up. It’s going to make you a better person for yourself and less of a waste of space to society as a whole is going to be a quick episode. So let’s go with number one.

Allow People to Talk (02:11):

When someone is talking, allow them to f&#king talk. My friends. When you interject into a conversation, or when someone is talking, it shows to others that you are vain, you value and may have an inflated opinion of yourself because you think you possess something that’s a little bit better than other people may it be looks, may it be fame, may it be money, may it be material things, I don’t know, but the vibe that you are putting off says that you think you are more important than other people.

Do Your Research (02:54):

Number two, when you don’t have a fully formed thought, please just shut your mouth. Don’t claim to know something. When you don’t, you are trying too hard you cumbubble person, may it be in political views, may it be something you have just heard or caught wind of. You are doing yourself a disservice when you say something, when you don’t have a fully formed, mature thought of that topic or a subject. Allow yourself to think it through just because you heard it on so and so just because you read it in so and so, does not mean you know what the f&#k you are talking about. You are only regurgitating what you heard. This is not your real thought. So please do yourself a service. When you catch wind of something, learn more about it. Read more sources about it, about that one thing. So you get all different angles and then sit down, meditate on it, and then give your opinion about it. State it as an opinion, do not state it as a fact.

Triple Check Yourself on This, Please (04:09):

Number three, and this is my favorite tip and advice. If you, my friend have not brushed your teeth, then please shut that cumbubble breath mouth of yours. Tommy P is about to say something that is going to be very controversial. Might even hurt many people feelings, but it must be said. If there is anything good that has come from this COVID-19 pandemic. It is the containment of the people’s bad breath. Prior to this, Tommy P has met plenty of people. I R L in real life that has terrible f&#king breath. Oh my God. I don’t know if you guys ever played that video game called mortal kombat. There’s a character on there. And what he does is he, one of his finishing moves is sucking people’s soul out of their f&#king body, go on YouTube and watch that soul sucking or something like that. That is exactly my friends. What you are doing when you leave the house without checking your breath, you are sucking the soul out of people’s body when you open up your mouth.

If You Ain’t Got Nothing Good to Say… (05:23):

And finally, number four, if you do not have anything of value to add to the conversation, please shut your lips together. This includes talking sh^t and or gossiping. Oh boy, I hate the act of gossiping in which I talked about in episode 18., Every conversation should steer you and the person that is involved in this dialectic discussion, should steer you to grow as a human and as a spiritual being. No nonsense talk, unless it’s genuinely making you an all person involved in this communication, this conversation laugh. So moving forward, I implore and beg of you… When you are talking about someone to please say nice things or kind things about them, it does two things. One, it puts the person in question in a very positive light and two the person that you are talking with, where you’re sharing these great attributes is actually in their mind, attributing those positive qualities to yourself. It’s a thing. This is called the halo effect in psychology. They attribute those positive qualities to you, even though you might not even have them at all. It’s a strange, strange thing, but work it to your advantage.

Conclusion (07:03):

And that concludes this episode, episode what, what number 19 episode 19, that means they’re legal to f&#king drink in Canada, Tommy P., I would like to clear something up. If you have the unfortunate luck to meet me in real life, and if you completely break any of these precepts, guess what? I would not judge you even one bit. I would even allow you to say you’re fill, but I, at the end of that conversation have made an informed decision of who you are. And from that point on, I will limit my interaction with you. I will show you respect. I will be cordial and plenty of other people will feel the same way. Invest in yourself. Allow your thoughts to mature, learn to shut your pie hole when it does not concern you. So back at it again, how to shut your mouth, just close your lips. And why you should shut your mouth or shut the f&#k up. One, when someone is talking, allow them to f&#king talk. Two, when you don’t fully have a form thought, please do so and shut your f&#king mouth. If you have not checked your breath before you left the house, please double check your breath, else, shut your cumbubble breath up. And number four, if you do not have anything of value to add to the conversation, I highly suggest that you shut the f&#k up. Alright. I hope that you enjoy this podcast, podcast number 19. I just want to say thank you very much to all of my listeners out there for, you know, keeping up with each and every episodes and giving me all of these positive motherf&#king reviews. I appreciate the f&#k out of you. I really do. And also all of the haters out there as well. I appreciate you as well, because I learned something big from you indirectly. So if you enjoy this kind of content, please check me out on my website on YouTube and on Instagram, higher self concepts for all of them, concepts, plural with an S until next time I bid you all farewell. This is Tommy P. Under the Bodhi Tree. Peace the f&#k out.

I was never able to shake these questions...
