Stop Talking

There’s endless advice that says get your word out there. There are endless ways to interact. Everything is encouraging you to talk, talk, talk. Except me.

Paramahansa Yogananda’s guidance was that if you talk a lot, you should read more; if you read a lot, you should write more; if you write a lot you should think more; if you think a lot, you should meditate more.

When I was studying at Paramahansa Yogananda’s Self Realization Fellowship, one of the brothers related a story about one of his teachers.

The teacher said, “We’ve nothing to do? Nowhere to go? Let’s meditate.”
