Is it ok to think about a secret?


i was wondering, if somebody tells you a secret they weren’t supposed to, is it okay to think about it, after all you’re not supposed to know it.


Dear randum,

It it permissible to think about such a secret. But you might think twice about confiding any secrets of your one with that person!
