After seeing the presidential debate, we all have learned a lesson: that we should let others talk so we know what’s on their minds. When I was around spiritual Masters, sometimes, a seeker talked so much that the Master kept on saying, “Yes.” The seeker did not learn anything, as he gave no time to the Master for answers. Once you start communicating with God, give Him a chance to come up with a perfect solution to your issues. That is why we have two ears and one mouth, so we can listen twice as much as we can speak. Strength is not forcing our will by being aggressive but being able to bear aggression calmly. Try being silent in an argument and you see the other person really getting upset. When you let others finish their sentence, you will realize all they want you to do is just agree with what they say. Give a simple nod, and they will be pleased.— Satish Daryanani
