The organ of speech is an instrument of the physical mental or expressive externalising mind. <ref>http://incarnateword.in/cwsa/28/the-parts-of-the-body-and-the-centres#p7</ref>
It [truthfulness] means first truth-speaking, but beyond that to keep the speech in harmony with the deepest truth of which one is conscious. <ref>http://incarnateword.in/cwsa/31/speech-and-yoga#p50</ref>
...human speech at its highest merely attempts to recover by revelation and inspiration an absolute expression of Truth which already exists in the Infinite above our mental comprehension.

I use "word" in a literary sense—it is what is called elsewhere the creative Word. It is the origin of all speech and all thought.
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, thenhought takes place above the head and one can speak from there, that is to say, the direction of the speech is from there.
