Talking and Silence.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


My question today is regarding the fact that since childhood, I have been a “gabber”.  I love to talk!  I don’t mean gossip or anything negative, I just love to talk to people and learn more about them.  Due to this characteristic, I have been called “weird” more times than I care to remember in childhood, and “different” in adulthood.  While I know that “I am what I am”, as long as I am not hurting anyone, I also think of what Lao Tzu says, “He who speaks does not know, and he who knows does not speak”.  Is it time to silence myself, not only through meditation, but in social interactions?  Thank you so much for your time!


No, I don’t think it’s time to silence yourself. Talking is a natural expression of who you are, how you enjoy life. There are other types of people who love to dance all the time or those who are constantly singing.

In the oft quoted phrase, “He who speaks does not know, and he who knows does not speak,” I think Lao Tzu was saying that the experience of unity consciousness is truly an ineffable mystery, full of contradictions, opposites and that anyone who tries to contain that limitless experience in finite words cannot possibly do it justice. He wasn’t trying to tell you to be quiet, just inviting you to go beyond words to the actual experience itself. So definitely, spend time in silent meditation, but afterward, since you love to talk, feel free to talk and be yourself.
