Q: The last three days I talked so much that all my inner energy was exhausted.
Talking has a very exhausting effect for the inner energies – unless the inner itself controls the talk. Everyone who lives much inside tends to feel too much talking a fatiguing thing and quite shallow and unnecessary unless it is talk that comes from within. Of course if you make a practice of talking much, that will bring you outside, externalise you and then you will no longer find it fatiguing even if you talk for 18 hours out of the 24.
