Every cell, every organ and system, every object in your environment, everything arises in a nested space with a specific vibration or “song.”
These nested spaces are created by flowing awareness curving back on itself. Globally, this means becoming self-aware. Yet consciousness continues to flow and continues to curve back on itself in smaller and smaller loops, increasing in density until the space within the loops manifests as actual space. This continues in increasing density until it expresses as form. (There are various perspectives of this process.)
“Curving Back on Myself, I Create Again and Again.” – Krishna, in the Bhagavad Gita
A team of devata (light beings) “singing” in harmonies create the song of each object and sustain the correct vibrations and structure for the form of the object. This is pre-form so these beings don’t have forms. They’re more like points of light, pure expressions of soul and alive consciousness.
Their sounds are like kirtan but sung in rounds, a call and response pattern in layers. In that sense, the song isn’t linear in the way we’d hear a song on the radio. It’s more like several stations at once, but in harmony. And at a faster tempo.
Not only are they singing the song but their relationships across the nested space create subtle (sacred) geometry. We might say they triangulate the sounds.
As the curving becomes more dense, it forms fields. These are given structure by the geometry and detail by the overtones of the song. The fields then solidify into form. These songs are short but in less localized time. Within the world they appear sustained.
We might say the initial sound in the initial space is the pranava mantra AUM. It’s overtones create the differentiation in what leads to our universe.
Within that universe is a progressive scale of spaces with objects of increasing complexity. Galactic cluster, galaxy, solar system, planet, continent, region, and so forth all the way down to quantum fluctuations in “space-time foam” where the overtones interplay. This means systems within systems, spaces within spaces, and songs within songs within songs. Each progressive level expands the detail and diversity.
“Look at these worlds spinning out of nothingness. That is within your power.” – Rumi
Before this chain of nested spaces, we have core songs that are call and response on a much higher level. There is what we might call the song of God or song of the Divine Mother for this creation. Then you have a cluster of high beings at the top of creation who are responding to Her song.
As consciousness is aware of itself both globally and at every point, we might call the above song and response the global song. This is much higher than our universe.
Each point within that global awareness that is awake and expressing has their own song. Those that express as a life form have a soul song, a personal response to the Divine song. As above, this song is short but full of overtones. They have also called the soul song our “true name” although it’s unlikely we’d be able to speak it aloud. We don’t have the vocal structure to do so.
This song is part of what we resonate with in another and what draws certain support and abilities to us. We express our soul song into a specific form within the universe. We call this being born. 🙂
The more subtle songs are on the Pashyanti level of speech. More expressed layers are Madhyama, what we’d experience subjectively as “mental sounds” or thoughts.
While writing this article, the following quote came up. Our soul song is our prayer.
“The Life becomes the prayer, the prayer which sings the glory of God. The life, the life. When the individual first pulsates in God Consciousness that is the glory of God pulsating in the world of man. And this is the resonance of prayer. Just as through the prayer the glory of God is sung aloud and the echo thrills the atmosphere with divine influence and radiance, so when the life in God Consciousness thinks, or speaks or acts what pulsates is the divine breath. And that is the living song of God even though it may be silent or speaking, but the whole impulse of the individual life in God Consciousness is the pulsating song of God, the praise of God, the glory of God. The whole life is in the rhythm of the song, of the praise of God, the glory of God. And that is the prayer.”
