After someone awakens, they begin to notice the difference between speaking from the mind and speaking from deeper within. Sometimes we notice silence speaking through us, perhaps saying things we didn’t know personally.
Of course, I’m not talking about channeling. I’m talking about our universal higher Self moving through us.
I’ve written about the 4 levels of speech. We’ve all met people who just talk reactively and mindlessly. And many people speak from the mind. In that case, everything is about concepts and polarities of right and wrong, good and bad, and so forth. But if we can step back a little, we can speak from first impulses or the Self itself.
Of course, this isn’t something manipulated. It arises from where the attention is when we speak and an openness to what arises. It comes from ourselves, not another being.
A better example of this is listening to Lorne Hoff during the “callls.” If we listen from the intellect, we hear words and try to make sense of them, judge them, agree or disagree, and so forth. It gets no further than the mind and becomes just another talk. If we settle more deeply and listen from silence or presence, we listen to the movement or flow behind the words.
Then, Self can speak with itSelf. As it is Self that wakes up to itself in Self Realization, this style of listening can increase awakeness and can trigger a shift, as it did here.
Framed another way, the intelligence in the movement becomes more apparent and remembrance of who we are can happen.
