In spiritual growth, it is important to avoid imbalances between academic or intellectual learning and practical implementation. Otherwise there is a danger that too much intellectualization will kill the more contemplative practices and too much emphasis on practical implementation without study will kill the understanding. There has got to be a balance.
Lest there be any wonderment over the silence here, I thought the above quote a pretty good explanation. When you’ve pushed out as much in the way of contemplation (rather than kept it in), “balance” tends to mean shutting up a bit. (chuckle)
