‘relying on harsh speech…’ to me has the meaning of ‘resorting only to harsh speech’, which I would discourage and thinking that of others, just because they use harsh speech, would be an unkind exaggeration.
for me, this is thinking infected with wrong view and avoids one’s responsibility for one’s emotions. I would say ‘I react with sadness to…’ or something similar.
when we put ‘that’ after ‘feeling’ we are no longer speaking about feeling, but rather thought. You have already covered your feelings with ‘sad’, but maybe you also, or rather feel ‘hopeless’.
Sad to hear, indeed
I disagree, since he killed someone, I would say his morality was not pure and he could not be a noble person. Any ignoble person could fall into killing another, when spurred on by unwholesome conditions (states of mind). Just because one wears a robe does not make one a noble person and incapable of such immoral acts.
