“Did I just say that? How did I know that?”
Not planning what you’re about to say, without organizing how you’re going to talk to someone, is a sign of faith. It’s a permission you give yourself, a space you create, so that the natural wisdom within you can come forth. When you suspend your mental noise, suddenly you have access to a wisdom you didn’t know you had – and maybe would have even blocked – if you tried to say it with your mind.
Eckardt Tolle called his book “Silence Speaks” for a reason. “True intelligence operates silently. Stillness is where creativity and solutions to problems are found.”
So try it. Resist the temptation to plan out your discussion in advance. Just let the words come out, from that silent part within you. Trust yourself.
You might even be surprised at how wise you really are.
