When necessary

6 February 2022

When the doors of the baths are opened, the warmth is expelled, and exactly the same thing happens with the soul when it wants to discuss things with lots of people, on a variety of subjects, at regular intervals. Even if what it says is right every time, it still loses its warmth, which disappears through the gates of its words. This is why silence is so beneficial, when required, because it’s the mother of profound wisdom.
