“The lotus in the throat: Expression — external mind”[1]

“commanding expression and all externalisation of the mind-movements and mental forces”[2]

“sixteen petals, grey”[3]


Speech comes from the throat centre, but it is associated with whatever is the governing centre or level of the consciousness — wherever one thinks from. If one rises above the head, then thought takes place above the head and one can speak from there, that is to say, the direction of the speech is from there.”[4]
