Speech, Mistakes and Divinity
When you're speaking with others is it careless or carefree? Is there a nervousness or restriction or reluctance about what you really want to say and is that something we all worry about? -We shouldn't be worrying about that. What do I mean when I say, careless-Do you think it is the thought that cares or the care that's thought? Does one come before the other, like the "chicken or the egg?" It's like when you say, "regret" and that's like a little bit of a past look; the harmony is mistaken or mistakenly given at that moment. Do you think you need to have more harmony before you speak then? So is that why we hold back then, because we're worried, but then we don't say what we want to say to make a mistake.
So, it's really about mistakes then, do you think? And it could be that the reluctance to make a mistake is actually what holds us back in speaking to others? I think so. It's okay to make a mistake and since we all do that, that "erring" sense has got a sweet tone to it because then you get an opportunity to say "I'm sorry", later. So, you know, it's not the bad things that we're talking about. It's not as bad as we think it is and mostly we feel ashamed that "I made a mistake" but let's just say that for a moment when we're speaking "evil", are we saying anything that terrible? -No. Sometimes I say, evil or joy just in a very lighthearted way so that we can feel sort of unrestricted or not so concerned. In other words, do we shock people all the time? -No. So, it's just tiny little slip-ups then and so don't be so hard on yourself. It's not the end of everything that we think that way, really.
If we are going to explore our divinity, we're going to be exploring, in a sense, our ability to err from time to time too. We had the idea that we don't want to collapse anything in the sense that I might be thinking, "I'll be always forgiving myself then." What does that feel like then? Actually, making a mistake is like the flip side of a kind of forgiveness and if we make a mistake, we hold back on ourselves at that moment of that glory of that self-revelation? Well, maybe no but I could feel bad that I did say something I regret but at the same time, what a great opportunity not to miss that forgiveness aspect too. So, it turns out that you can't really make a mistake.
The perplexing quality of lightbody work, is that when we approach it from any angle, forgiveness is present or perhaps you don't like that word because maybe we don't want to think that we have something to forgive and it's okay-you can come up with your own forgiveness terminology. It doesn't have to be that way and it's kind of letting loose then of free speech on this planet so that we notice that we hurt somebody or evil, joy or rapture. We feel the ability then to speak to a greater range of life itself without holding back and especially as womankind here, we really do have the ability to harmonize without care and that too many times we are actually thinking, "I might hurt somebody" and we don't say what we need to say and we actually regret that far less or more, you know. There's far more regret for the things we don't say then the things that we do slip out.
Let's look at some of the qualities of speech for a moment. What do you bring to speech that you like? What don't you bring to speech that you don't like? -Same thing. We're just always going to be rotating it so that we feel a little bit of confusion, actually because sometimes we're holding back just because we want to be clever enough to say something so wise and then we missed something clever and wise because we were holding back. So, I'm just saying, don't hold back, don't hold back. Don't hold back on this. It's a beautiful outspoken time on this planet. Do you agree that women have the ability to cut free here a little bit and say what's on your mind-or no? It's really in the heart chakra that we're talking about and to develop that quality in the heart takes the mind off the heart. So, it's a very interesting contradiction we're getting at; that you have that willingness to speak with that divine sense of union between you and someone else and to say what's on your mind or in the body form.
Are you scared to speak? Do you feel tight, dark, light, stomach-ache-y or victim-like? Where is the powerful sense of you and for a second, did you give it away to the person you are speaking with. Why did you do that? Why do you want to know them more than yourself at that moment? Perhaps you're listening for mistakes and have self-doubt. Perhaps you have tragedy and things that can't be spoken of. So, those kind of things can create doubt as if, "I'm not good enough for this moment". Or we might think that we're judgmental and feel like, "watch out, I'm going to say something bad"-that kind of a judgment thing- even though we're not really meant to be that way because judgment is a kind of mental list of biases that mean different things to different people.
-But to let speech be a very great healer in your life is a wonderful blessing and also an opportunity to quicken up the pace to notice a kind of mistake or a mistaken feeling about ourselves as both not good or not good enough. Some of this is in our mind because we choose our words carefully or not carelessly, too and then this sense of our own sweet self comes back home as if it never left and speech becomes a beautiful gift like a guardian angel in yourself and in the speech centers; the throat chakra and the energy in the body. We uplift the world around us with speech and just because words are miss-represented or misrepresentative, doesn't mean that the impact of them isn't felt or isn't honored or isn't lost for a moment on the person that you're with.
We think that speech is language communication and communicativeness and we "miss the boat" when we think that way. Anger happens like that. We're angry out there. Yes, we missed the boat because we misspoke about ourselves. We love ourselves. We're angry. We're not angry. We're happy. We're sad. We can notice the mind's eye list of evil and joy and its biased approach to speech; however you choose to stretch the harp of life so that the chords all match. And so then there's mistakes and entities and energy and all the different frameworks of how we language energy ourselves-with willingness, trust and courage to move myself home, inside the real physical body and own emotions.
