When you are enlightened, there will not be any movement of letter or word or thought between your navel and throat. Words will come only from the throat. I can say this is one of the precise descriptions of enlightenment. There will not be any word, thought, syllable, or sound movement between the navel and the throat.
Words will be there only when you are talking. When you are not talking, there will not be any words inside. Only the energy movement will be there. There will be no thought, no verbalization, no continuous inner chattering.
Your inner chattering is the only thing that disturbs your whole life. This is very difficult for most people to understand.
They always think, ‘Unless every moment, inner chatter is happening, will I ever plan my everyday life? How will I be able to run my business? How will I be able to live?’
Understand, when you don’t have inner chatter, it is not dead silence. It is intense energy! From that energy, whatever needs to be done will come out as a complete visualization. If you have inner chattering, it will come line by line – ‘Morning, I have to wake up. Then, I have to go to my office. There I will work on the new project. In the evening I will come back. Then I may go out for dinner…’ In a linear manner, one by one, thoughts and words come out.
When you don’t have inner chatter, when you are just with yourself, the whole visualization comes out as one package, one piece of information. That is what we call intuition. When you go through the logical process, it is called inner chatter, it is intellect. But when you don’t have that inner chatter, things start expressing in you intuitively, straightaway you know.
Enlightenment does not lead to the absence of troubles. It leads to the presence of courage to handle troubles.
When the intellect ripens and reaches its peak, it becomes intelligence. When emotion ripens and reaches its peak, it becomes trust. When the being ripens and reaches its peak, it becomes enlightenment.
