Within our hearts and souls, we vibrate with the life we are living on this planet. We vibrate on our journey. Our lives are like a song, the secret to the beauty of music is the notes…and the spaces between the notes, while we walk our path, or play a violin, or piano. The voice of God/Goddess/It is found within the vibrations. This is the essential sound, it is the vibration of the Universe and the sound of creation.
“But few will hear the secrets hidden within the notes.” –Rumi
Chanting brings audible sound into a refined state. It is as if there were a hidden peephole into the inner landscape. The sound moves us, but it is the silence of the inner landscape that truly moves us.
“Listen far beyond hearing, and call the unheard.” –Loa Tzu
When we turn to the music within us, we enter through the peephole into another reality. This one is filled with the loving presence of the souls of our ancestors and the souls of our offspring not yet born.
“If you want the truth, I’ll tell you the truth,
Listen to the secret sound, the real sound, which is inside you…
The music from the strings no one touches.” –Kabir
According to Jewish, Kabbalistic tradition, in the act of Creation the numinous light of God poured forth into vessels that were meant to receive His creative force. But the vessels couldn’t contain the awesomeness of God’s light and shattered, and the world is made up of their shards. Our job as evolving souls is to find and reclaim the hidden light. –Excerpted from the Khaballah
” Shout unto the Lord, all the earth,
Break forth and sing for joy, yea sing praises.
Sing praises unto the Lord with the harp…Hallelujah!
O Lord my God, Thou art very great…Hallelujah!
I will sing praise to my Lord while I have any being…Hallelujah! ” —King David
Chant and sacred sound are gifts of Spirit. To join with a community of others on many different paths is the rising of ecstasy of the inner landscape.
