Ownership of thoughts.

Scientists think the sense that we are having the thoughts which appear in our consciousness, is due to a phenomenon called “corollary discharge”.

Disruption of this sense, such as in schizophrenia, can result in “hearing voices” because without the sense of ownership of our thoughts, they may appear to come from other entities.

In spiritual awakening there is no such disruption because, while we no longer feel that we are “having” or driving our thoughts, we also recognise from which body/mind they appear, or to put it more accurately; the healthy body/mind recognises its own thoughts, but we recognise our self as the limittless awareness in which this occurs.
