At what point should we stop and realize that it's not about giving, it's about taking. Taking things in. Yes that is true, one of the few times taking is promoted against giving. But that will be your gift, the taking, because by taking you are allowing others to give.
Stop words from flowing out, take a break, sit down and let it all come to you.
Stop saying all thoughts aloud, stop thinking. Because that thinking is useless. This kind of thinking is subjective and compromised. It's no longer yours.
