If we can feel that
It is not our voice,
Not our fingers,
But some reality deep inside our heart
Which is expressing itself,
Then we will know that it is
The soul’s music.
The outer music
Comes from an outer instrument.
The inner music
Comes from the heart.
The name of this inner music
Music is the inner or universal language of God. I do not know French or German or Italian. But if music is played, immediately the heart of the music enters into my heart, or my heart enters into the music. At that time, we do not need outer communication; the inner communion of the heart is enough. My heart is communing with the heart of the music and in our communion we become inseparably one.
In the spiritual world, next to meditation is music, the breath of music. Meditation is silence, energising and fulfilling. Silence is the eloquent expression of the inexpressible. Aldous Huxley says: “After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.”
Silence is the source of everything. It is the source of music and it is music itself. Silence is the deepest, most satisfying music of the Supreme. Silence is like a stream that goes to one place and becomes a river, or to another place and becomes a brook, or to the sea where it is totally expanded.
Silence is the nest and music is the bird. The bird leaves the nest early in the morning and returns to the nest in the evening. Similarly, in the spiritual world, divine music comes from the inmost soul of silence.
Soulful music immediately awakens and inspires our hearts because it embodies the Absolute Supreme. Soulful music is the Light that wants to express itself in a divine way. Even as darkness wants to manifest its authority on earth, Light also wants to manifest its Reality and Divinity in a specific way. Light is the soul of everything. Light is the soul of music, Light is the soul of love and Light is the soul of all art. When Light divinely manifests itself in the form of music, it is the music of the soul.
Music means Self-expansion and oneness. The Self expands through music. The Self that expands is not the individual self but the unlimited Self. Music is the expansion of unlimited Reality.
We can use music to help us in our spiritual life provided we know that music and the spiritual life are like twin brothers; we cannot separate them. How can we separate two fingers, two eyes? They sit side by side. If one eye is not functioning well, then we feel that our vision is imperfect. Similarly, music and the spiritual life must go together; one complements the other. Music helps the spiritual seeker to go deep within to get the utmost satisfaction from life, from truth, from reality. The spiritual life, in turn, helps music to offer its capacity and its strength, which is the soul’s light, to the world at large.
When we listen to soulful music, or when we ourselves play soulful music, immediately our inner existence climbs up high, higher, highest. It climbs up and enters into something beyond. This Beyond is constantly trying to help us, guide us, mould us and shape us into our true transcendental image, our true divinity. When we hear soulful music, or when we play a soulful piece of music, we feel a kind of inner thrill in our entire existence, from the soles of our feet to the crown of our head. A river is flowing through us, a river of consciousness, and this consciousness is all the time illumined.
Next to deep prayer or meditation, music is of paramount importance. Meditation is like a direct route, or shortcut, to the goal. Music is a road that is absolutely clear: it may be a little longer, but it is quite clear of obstacles. If we can play soulful music or hear soulful music, the power of our meditation increases. Soulful music adds to our aspiration. Similarly, if a spiritual seeker wants to be a musician, even if he does not have a musical background, he will be able to be a good musician because prayer and meditation contain all capacities. You may never have studied music, but if you pray and meditate soulfully, then inside your prayer, inside your meditation, by the Grace of the Supreme, the power of music looms large. Then you can utilise this power in your own way.
Each time soulful music is played, we get inspiration and delight. In the twinkling of an eye, music can elevate our consciousness. But if we also pray and meditate, then we are undoubtedly more illumined and fulfilled than a music-lover who is not consciously leading a spiritual life. Each spiritual musician is consciously spreading God’s Light on earth. God is the cosmic Player, the eternal Player, and we are His instruments. It is the Supreme who makes the proper instrument. Then, it is He who makes the player play properly, and it is He who makes the musician.
Soulful and spiritual music really helps us; it feeds our inner life. Music has tremendous power. With fire we can burn ourselves, or we can cook and do many other good things. It is the same with music. Divine music immediately elevates our consciousness, whereas undivine music immediately lowers our consciousness and tries to destroy our sincere inner cry for a better spiritual life. The spiritual person will immediately be affected by this music. So music can change our consciousness provided it is the music that comes from the heart and enters into the heart. The music that touches the very depth of our heart can elevate our consciousness.
Our senses are restless. Therefore, our mind suffers. Our mind is doubtful. Therefore, our senses suffer. The mind has no capacity to bind or discipline the senses. Here music comes to the mind’s rescue. With the help of music, the mind binds and disciplines the senses and makes them into perfect instruments so they can be inundated with peace, light and bliss from above.
Again, when the mind is doubtful, when the mind drinks deep of doubt-poison, the senses have no capacity to inject faith into the mind. Here also music comes to the rescue. The senses take help from music to transform and illumine themselves. When the senses are calm and quiet, the doubtful mind is totally transformed and it becomes inseparably one with the heart, which is all receptivity. At that time our Inner Pilot—the Supreme Musician can manifest Himself blessingfully, powerfully and measurelessly. As He is manifesting Himself in and through us, the divine music becomes part and parcel of our existence and we grow into perfect Perfection. In and through us the Supreme Musician creates a new world. We become the divine music, and a new vision of God’s transcendental Reality operates in and through us.

The omnipotent God is eternally existing in two aspects. What all We can see and sense in the external universe is the outer aspect of Him. The cause and effect of this boundless universe is the Inner aspect of Him. Though these two aspects are eternal, the outer – one is visible and ever changing on the other hand the Inner – one is invisible and changeless. From the Inner – most the Almighty power is ever expressing out all to appear, disappear and reappear in the whole universe. The man with all his sense organs, reasoning mind material and mechanical aids is unable to find out either the Outer – most of the universe or the Inner-most of himself. All the sciences and philosophies are trying unsuccessfully to probe towards either extremity. The material scientist’s vision is reaching some stellar region while he has actually visited and landed the lunar sphere. The spiritual philosophers and yogis have gone deep into themselves and there they have experienced some Divine mystic power. From this Inner experience of the Self or soul which is permanent, the knowledge of the two aspects of God has come to light.
Nuclear science has given out some atomic energy of electromagnetic forces. But these forces are not Divine. From the nucleus of the material atom when the life energy comes out some physical body is built around that particular atom. Along with that life energy sensuous knowledge too develops and blossoms into intellectual mind in the human life. This mind has been endowed with the reasoning power by which the man is exploring all the outer and inner truths. Here, it is to be known that all the above energies have come out from the nucleus of one atom or other. That life giving atom in man is found out, to be shining from the mid head of the man through out his life time. The mystic atom of life and light is switched on and off by some unknown agent. The higher psychic knowledge of yogis has revealed that the mystic atom is the Divine soul atom of Atman. This soul atom is the Eternal abode or God who is One Supreme. Being existing Omni presently for ever, He is commanding and ruling from this atom for all the creation and destruction in the world.
From the above paragraph it is clear that the soul atom of man is really the Eternal throne of God Himself, His Omnipresent attribute makes Him to express out from everywhere. In any form of expression He projects only very small portion of His Being; but that too comes to realization when the man transcends to that soul plane. There is none but Himself existing Eternally without changing in the innermost and with changing outwardly. Hence, in man too, the soul and living body are really the double expression of God Himself. Till now the man was holding himself to be a physical being of temporary life. Even a yogic philosopher by his unripe soul knowledge was thinking that he was only a soul being brought out to this physical life in order to get the self realization. After that soul realization he merges into it and loses the outer frame. Thus his Divine knowledge and soul experience come to an end. To this soul atom the eternal life is to come through the outer life only. From outside one cannot life as eternal life. Therefore he must at first take his lodging at the soul abode.
The soul atom is common to both God and man. In reality of higher Divine experience, man and God are one and the same. Without clinging to the sensuous life the man is to live a pure life of Divine Love from the Innermost. By His Omni grace this Divine man is entitled to live an Eternal Blessed life. This Eternal life of God is the Divine right of man. To be unaware of this Divine right and passing away ignorantly is not the Will of God.
Death is not the end of the man. In death, only the physical body is lost. After the physical death the soul unfolds its life energy to form another body of new birth in this world. Here, one is to know something about the spirit body and the spiritual world. At the time of death, the outer body begins to decay and dissolve, in the meantime the spirit form that comes out of the corpse continues a ghost life for a longer period. This spirit or ghost may enter in some other body and reveal something nor a holy one of Divine quality. This spirit of a departed person may be guiding its devout followers and worshippers for a long time. But through that medium, no one can get the highest salvation. The true Divine life is to come directly from the Soul itself.
The soul knowledge and life are obtainable only in the physical life of material world. Unless one realizes his Divine soul life in this world he cannot live in Oneness of Him. Therefore he who lives in God will be blessed with immortalization. This is the Deathless life. Without understanding this Eternal Life, all the people of the world are passing on and passing away. The worldly religions are not teaching the humanity about the Supreme Truth of Almighty God, who is Only One for all. The present scientific mechanical life, the religious material life and the physical spiritual life cannot enable the man to obtain the Blessed Eternal Life.
Eternal and a Blissful life is the goal of man. This life opens from the soul or Innermost of every one. So it is not bound against any religion. There is no hindrance to any body to live in any circumstance.
People of the world without knowing the most Supreme Divine Truth are imagining and demonstrating many many things about God, Atman, soul and spirit. The religious scriptures, philosophical treatises, scientific theories and all the isms of today have not brought a peaceful and happy life in the world. It is seen that some fast changes are happening in all the life of mankind. The Omni gracious Light of God is spreading on the horizon of the Inner world. This truth of Divine Light has been revealed and realized by our Swami Ramalingam (Thiru Arutprakasa Vallalar of Vadalur). As a Proof of his true realization he has attained immortality. Those who come to abide in the Soul Divine can perceive him and live a life of compassion in Oneness of himself. The old attainment of soul stage is, not at all a death less life. The life that is evolved from that Eternal soul transforms the nature of body to fill up by everlasting light of Grace. Hence the deathlessness to man is the Divine Will and order.

“Locality says that particles interact at points in space-time. But suppose you want to inspect space-time very closely. Probing smaller and smaller distance scales requires ever higher energies, but at a certain scale, called the Planck length, the picture gets blurry: So much energy must be concentrated into such a small region that the energy collapses the region into a black hole, making it impossible to inspect. “There’s no way of measuring space and time separations once they are smaller than the Planck length,” said Arkani-Hamed. “So we imagine space-time is a continuous thing, but because it’s impossible to talk sharply about that thing, then that suggests it must not be fundamental — it must be emergent.”[xii]
These recent discoveries reveal that liquids, space, and whatever space emerges from behave and resonate with similar principles and laws. Scientist Yves Couder has demonstrated that “quantum weirdness” can be reconciled and explained with fluid dynamics. His team was able to make a drop of silicon “walk” across the surface of a vibrating oil bath[xiii], perfectly mimicking the wave-particle duality revealed through the double-slit experiment, except on a macrocosmic scale[xiv]. Biophysicist William Brown expands on this, noting that:
“In fluid dynamics, it has been observed that two vortices, or eddies, when produced simultaneously (such as in entanglement experiments) actually remain connected below the surface via a vortexing tunnel — like a wormhole! This vortexing tunnel beneath the surface, would allow for a seemingly hidden connection between the “particles-waves”, and allow for them to be correlated even over time and space. Such wormholes were described by Einstein and Rosenberg (ER bridges) and later John Wheeler as a logical consequence of geometrodynamics — the topological description of spacetime. Could they now be used to describe the quantum realm as well? In his latest paper, acclaimed physicist Leonard Susskind, contributor to the holographic principle, demonstrated that the entanglement between particles may be due to wormhole networks in the structure of spacetime.” [xv]
Understanding liquids-space-Source Intelligence as resonant holographic mediums at differing fractal iterations, non-locality and/or entanglement is a conceptual stepping stone to the quantum phenomena of wormhole bridges or dimension shifting. Explored in later paragraphs, electron and electromagnetic spin is the intermediary or medium for inter-dimensional communication. If space is emergent, what is fundamental? What is primordial, foundational unity? The unifying principle underlying the dimensions is as eastern philosophers and metaphysicians and the esoteric schools have understood for millennia; the inner nature of everything is Sound.
How is “cosmic music resonating in 11 dimensional hyperspace”processed and understood by the human instrument? If the brain is a receiver for higher dimensional sub-quantum intelligence, how does pure formless consciousness takes form in thought and word? How does sub-quantum light and sound — the radiance and music of consciousness — coalesce as created form, as neurochemistry and nervous system signals, as dreams, visions, and inspiration?
The creator of the Wingmakers mythos and works of the Lyricus Teaching Order, James Mahu, provides an answer;
“In the nascent science of cymatics, sound waves have been proven to generate geometric forms in matter. In the yet-to-be-discovered science of multidimensional reality, waveforms can be sculpted to enter biogenetic fields and catalyze biochemical processes, restore cellular health and trigger encoded electromagnetic fields within the cellular functions of the Central Nervous System (CNS).” [xvi]
The geometries of the chakras are revealed throughout cymatic experiments; certain frequencies are in perfect resonance with the structure of a pine cone and depictions of the Sahasrara chakra (528hz). As formless consciousness is transformed through Sahasrara, Ajna, Vishuddhi, to Anahata and the Heart, Sound and Light are diversified into an infinite array of cymatic forms and vibrations; taking form as thoughts, inspiration, visions, archetypal ideas, symbols, and language.
Considering water as the three dimensional manifestation of a multidimensional quantum field, with space as an intermediary, water’s infinite crystallized “sacred geometric” forms are perfect evidence of the above in the below. The resonant molecular language contained in the double helix is the Soul’s intermediary between form and the formless, holographically organizing the infinite diversity of visible sound and audible light in the symphony of creation.

The predominant text of relativistic physics, Gravitation, notes “present-day quantum field theory “gets rid by a renormalization process” of an energy density in the vacuum that would formally be infinite, if not removed by this renormalization.”[iv] Each literal cube of space is 10^94gm/cm^3 “of field fluctuation energy in the vacuum”[v]; one centimeter of space exceeds the mass of the entire observable universe[vi]. A fundamental tenet in Mayan’s Aintiram, a purportedly ~12,000 year old text, is “The free space is packed with cubical atoms of energy. They are building blocks of the structure of the universe.”[vii]
Expanding and shifting this cube of space to its multidimensional and higher iteration is the Cube of Metatron. Twenty-two lines/paths in the Cube expand to seventy eight lines in Metatron’s cube, each line begetting an archetypal form unveiled in the Major, and Major and Minor Arcana, respectively. Physicist Michio Kaku notes “Each subatomic particle represents a note on a vibrating string or vibrating membrane. We now have a candidate for the “mind of God” that Einstein wrote about for the last 30 years of his life, the “mind of God” in this picture is cosmic music resonating throughout 11 dimensional hyperspace,”[viii] This is a beautiful and lucid articulation of Qabalistic metaphysics, in harmony with budding theoretical physics.
In the western mystery tradition the Tree of Life is the dynamic structure through which consciousness transforms itself into the four elements in the dimensions of energy, matter, time and space. The eleven objective Sephiroth or dimensions are connected through twenty-two subjective pathways, corresponding to the twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabet and the archetypal keys of the Major Arcana. Similar in intent to eastern mandalas and yantras, the twenty-two Major Arcana are an archetypal journey into a 5th dimensional state and integration with the Source network. The Soul’s journey around the Cube of Space into reunion with the central point was first articulated in the Qabalistic Book of Formation, and developed further by Builders of the Adytum founder Paul Foster Case in the early 1900s. This journey elevates and expands individual consciousness from a water-based neurochemical soup, to a consciousness tuned into the subtle frequencies permeating space, towards the ultimate state of integration with the sub-atomic Source Intelligence network. The primeval geometric instruments used in the orchestration of creation find expression in nearly every wisdom tradition.
Eight symbols give rise to the 64 hexagrams of the I Ching; the first binary system, ultimately leading to 64bit computing. There are 64 classical arts listed in many Indian scriptures. The perfected Qabalistic structure is a 64 star tetrahedron, the Merkabah. The outside of a 64 tetrahedron has 144 faces, a significant number in the Juedo-Christian tradition. Its structure is a cubeoctahedron or vector equilibrium described by Buckminster Fuller, with eight star tetrahedrons placed into the negative space of the central, perfectly equilibrated form.
Physicist Nassim Haramein arrived at a 64 tetrahedral structure as the fundamental form of “space”. In a recent paper “Quantum Gravity and the Holographic Mass”[ix] Haramein accurately predicts the charge radius of the proton months prior to the LHC providing updated measurements. He exposits the structure of space as “Spherical plank units in a generalized holographic approach”, or a three dimensional Flower of Life. In an earlier paper with Dr. Elizabeth Raucher he demonstrates that space-time is not simply curved to produce gravity, but also curled, like water flowing down a drain[x].
The governing principle for this flow is what the mystery schools have taught for millennia and physicists Nima Arkani-Hamed and Jaroslav Trnka’s recent description of the amplituhedron[xi] elucidates in modern physics; geometry is the underlying organizing principle and key to unifying and understanding interactions between the macro and microcosmic.

[x] Haramein, Nassim. Raucher, Elizabeth. THE ORIGIN OF SPIN: A CONSIDERATION OF TORQUE AND CORIOLIS FORCES IN EINSTEIN’S FIELD EQUATIONS AND GRAND UNIFICATION THEORY
Water, molecularly comprising ~98% of the Human Instrument[i] (~60% water mass), holds life together and behaves in a similar way to space, the medium for the slowest and densest forms of Light and Sound. Space functions as an oceanic medium for subtle particles and frequencies in a similar manner to Source Intelligence[ii], the Quantum Field that interfaces between Source and individualized consciousness. This field is the medium through which primeval Sound and Light is holographically refracted into intercoiled states and wave-patterns.
This text explores the similarities between these three media (water, space, quantum field) through the lenses of science and esoteric traditions. Underlying correspondences are revealed which may begin to reconcile fundamental discord in current understandings of science and consciousness. These three media progressively transduce and modulate prime Sound and Light towards manifestation, and divest primeval Sound and Light of quantum and material densities towards reunion with Origin.
Yoga, Magic, meditation, and nearly all transformational practices have, at a practical level, the core intent of transmuting the Human Instrument into a clearer and more coherent vehicle for the quantum field of Source Intelligence. Various traditions describe the expansion of consciousness as Kundalini rising through the chakras, lower metals transmuted into higher ones, opening the Seven Seals, ascending Jacob’s ladder, seven stages of spiritual unfoldment through keys 15–21 of the Major Arcana, elevating the life force through the seven endocrine glands, and many others. These systems and modalities are mythic, archetypal journeys and practical tools for awakening, in growing resonance with emerging scientific understanding and theory.
As we will see, emerging physics are revealing a unified field created and sustained through dynamic geometric forms. This understanding is central to many of the world’s mystical traditions; these multidimensional geometries are the transformers through which formless Light and Sound is radiated into the infinite creative diversity of the worlds of Form.

[i] “The human instrument consists of three principal components: The biological (physical body), the emotional, and the mental. These three distinct tools of perception, in aggregate, represent the vehicle of the individuated spirit as it interacts with the physical dimension of time, space, energy, and matter.” https://www.wingmakers.com/content/philosophy/
[ii] Source Intelligence is the energy-consciousness of First Source that is cast into all worlds, all dimensions, all realities, all life forms, all times and places. Source Intelligence is the First Source projected into all that is. Source Intelligence, in effect, is the “eyes and ears” of First Source, and its role is principally involved in expressing, upholding, and sustaining the will of First Source. On a more personal level, it is a liberating force of energy-intelligence that serves to accelerate the expansion of consciousness and assist those who desire to unlimit themselves” https://www.wingmakers.com/content/philosophy/
