There was a spiritual seeker, apprentice under a himalayan guru. He was so obsessed with his own spiritual upliftment, that he abhorred the various tasks assigned to him by his guru. He considered doing daily chores of ashram like cooking, cleaning etc., to be waste of his precious time.So, he decided to leave the ashram to focus single-mindedly on his spiritual upliftment.
He visited his guru 12 years later, to showcase the mystic power he had learnt. His guru asked him what did he learn in 12 years. He announced boastfully-" I can produce fire from my mouth."Saying thus, he opened his mouth and spewed flames of fire, just like the mystic dragon.
His guru remarked-"Even a simple match-stick can produce fire. You have wasted 12 years of your life to learn producing fire from your mouth, which can be done by a match-stick."
So,the moral of the story is that we need to pause from time to time to review our obsession with fluency. It is very natural for a PWS to be obsessed with fluency. But fluency in speech is a part of communication skills, not the alpha and omega of it.In today's world , communication skills include written communication(social media like FB, whatsapp,twitter.,official emails, formal written letters etc..), body language etc. , along with speech. So , working on communication skills in a holistic manner, and investing our time in learning important life skills (which can be different for different people, to each his/her own) would be far better approach towards living life.
