Talking, why talk if you know the answers you will receive? Does speaking really help anything? Do words create value, or does speaking them cost chi? Everything is precious. All energy should be accounted for. Everyone around should know the consequence of their time spent talking. If you are talking merely to fill the void then your speech will never help your destiny. True speech is only uttered when words are the only option. Otherwise, words are obtrusive; slowly raping us of meaning that once was their master.
Our speech has been stolen to talk of politics, non-profound observations of nature, silly gossip, television shows, or to relay stories of the past which no longer means much. Find me 5 things you talk about in a day and I would say you are on the right track. Don’t be shy. List them below. Without meaningful words, why do we even speak? Myself included, chatter is just a form of outward mental anxiety.
Silence solves problems, nervous action creates them.
