Sadhguru on Uttering words, only when it comes from your Core.

Sadhguru : When we say something that does not really burn within us, it amounts to lying. It is better to shut up. Just see how many words you utter in a day – how many of them really touch a chord within you? Words are simply thrown out like garbage, because you have to say something all the time. If you utter words that really touch the core, you will see that every word you utter will make you livelier and livelier.

There was a time when I used to teach four threehour sessions in a day, and in between, there were so many things to do. About half an hour to one hour before the class, you have to talk to people who come early. After the class is over, at least another 45 minutes to one hour, you have to talk to people and answer their questions. That means you speak for at least 15 to 16 hours in a day, and out of these, 12 hours at a raised pitch. I spoke to a hundred people without microphone. At the end of four sessions, my throat would bleed. People would ask, “Won’t this kill you?”

The first class started at 5:00 in the morning, and on many days, the situations was such that I would only eat at 11:00 in the night. I would get up in the morning, do my kriya and go, and the whole day, there would not be a minute’s space. But with every session, I would become livelier and better – this is when the words that you utter do not come as garbage that you throw at people, when everything you do comes from the fire that you keep on within yourself all the time. Just try this – talk to someone with some passion about something that means something to you, and you will see how you are invigorated. If it is just blah, blah, it will exhaust you.

If you continue to not burn with truth but everything that you say is on the surface and a lie, slowly you get buried, barely able to ventilate yourself. This is beginning to happen to a large segment of humanity.
