As you know, the 4th Internal Monad is about generating one's own ideas about the self, the life, and its experiences, while sifting through all of the ideas that were handed down about who one is, how one should be, and what is expected of the self and the life. It is a process of returning to self after exploring that self through the eyes of everyone who raised, nurtured, challenged, or harmed.
What many do not understand about this transition in a life is that it is necessary to have seen yourself through so many other eyes, so to speak, before one can see the self. In the same way that it takes 7 years for a body to integrate enough with Essence to sustain hosting, it takes up to 40 or more years, if ever, to sustain any sense of Manifesting that Essence.
To put this another way: until the completion of the 4th Internal Monad, the Personality can speak on behalf of Essence. Upon completion of the 4th Internal Monad, the Personality can speak AS Essence.
That is not to say there are no exceptions, and no Manifestations of Essence previous to the completion of the 4th Internal Monad, but those tend to be moments. Upon completion, the Manifestation of Essence can be days at a time, or a stringing together of moments that would appear to be weeks at a time.
Remember: once the 4th Internal Monad is completed, and completed successfully, the necessity for agreement on preferences tends to fall away, and an embrace of differences comes naturally.
We did not say it comes any more easily, but it is more natural to presume differences, instead of always bumping up against them.
