24. Endless talking

You indulge in endless talking
In order to appear wise.
Do you realise what you do to yourself
When you indulge in endless talking?
You just load up troubles
And more troubles
Until you are totally confused and totally lost.
Stop talking, unless you can talk to
God’s Compassion-Eye,
And Illumination-Heart.
Sri Chinmoy, Khama karo, Agni Press, 1987
