47. When one intends to move or when one intends to speak, one should first examine one's own mind and then act appropriately with composure.
48. When one sees one's own mind to be attached or repulsed, then one should neither act nor speak, but remain still like a piece of wood.
49. When my mind is haughty, sarcastic, full of conceit and arrogance, ridiculing, evasive, and deceitful,
50. When it is inclined to boast, or when it is contemptuous of others, abusive, and irritable, then I should remain still like a piece of wood.
(we should add these to the boardie bill of rights)

The very purpose of spirituality is self-discipline. Rather than criticizing others, we should evaluate and criticize ourselves.
Ask yourself, what am I doing about my anger, my attachment, my pride, my jealousy?
These are the things we should check in our day to day lives.
