The entire universe emerges out of this sound - OM

I contemplated this today and this is what came to me.

The entire universe emerges out of this sound.

If the entire universe emerges out of this sound and non-duality is real, than I am a part of this entirety, hence I am OM as OM has manifest me into this universe.

THEREFORE OM AM I, AND I AM OM.

Try repeating is like this and see the effect it has your state. I spent most of the day doing this and entered into a very heightened state.

OM AM I AS I AM OM.

OM IS ALL AS ALL IS OM.

OM AM I AS I AM OM.

OM IS ALL AS ALL IS OM.

Repeat this softly to your self alternating for about 10 minutes and see what happens to your state. IT´S AMAZING. THE PHRASES start repeating in your mind by themselves, flowing like a river and you have a sudden expansion of awareness.

OM - SHANTI - OM

aum

No doubt aum has some paranormal power in it. When you start playing with it you realize it. Animals react to it etc, your body vibrates to its sound in a complete way, it puts you in special ecstatic states etc.

Still, on what do you base your radical claim that the whole universe emerges from this sound, be it sacred and powerful as it may?

About the exercise, the phrases indeed started repeating in my head after a few minutes of practice but I think they would repeat the same way with any other rhythmic phrase, no?

the whole universe emerges from this sound

AUM,

The statement "the whole universe emerges from this sound" is not mine, it is from GURUMAYI CHIDVALASANANDA.

If I were to try to support this I would add that if all the universe is an expression of SAT-CHIT-ANANDA (being, consciousness and bliss as affirmed by many saints through experiental conclusion) that the universe must have a seed, a source of it´s beginning.

Gurumayi further explained in her New Year´s talk that OM is composed of three sounds, each corresponding to the 3 primary forces of nature:

FROM WIKIPEDIA:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aum

Advaita
Aum symbol on a temple elephant's forehead

In Advaita philosophy it is frequently used to represent three subsumed into one, a common theme in Hinduism. It implies that our current existence is mithyā and maya, "falsehood", that in order to know the full truth we must comprehend beyond the body and intellect the true nature of infinity. Essentially, upon moksha (mukti, samādhi) one is able not only to see or know existence for what it is, but to become it. When one gains true knowledge, there is no split between knower and known: one becomes knowledge/consciousness itself. In essence, Aum is the signifier of the ultimate truth that all is one.

Aum is the signifier of the ultimate truth that all is one.

Examples of Three into One:

* Creation (Brahma)- Preservation (Vishnu)- Destruction (Shiva) into Brahman the Atman, the Atman
* Waking- Dreaming- Dreamless Sleep into Turiya (transcendental fourth state of consciousness)
* Rajas (activity, heat, fire) - Tamas (dullness, ignorance, darkness) - Sattva (purity, light, serenity/shanti) into Brahman
* Body, Speech and Mind into Oneness
* Father, Son and Holy Spirit ? (I ADDED THIS)
Father - unmanifest, Son - manifest, Holy Spirit - Sustainer of manifestation

IN JAINISM IT IS CONSIDERED 5 FOLD

In Jainism
This is how the Jain om is depicted in Jain scriptures

In Jainism, Aum is regarded to be a condensed form of reference to the five parameshthis, by their initials A+A+A+U+M (o3m). The Dravyasamgrah quotes a Prakrit line:

ओम एकाक्षर पञ्चपरमेष्ठिनामादिपम् तत्कथमिति चेत "अरिहंता असरीरा आयरिया तह उवज्झाया मुणियां"
oma ekākṣara pañca-parameṣṭhi-nāmā-dipam tatkabhamiti ceta "arihatā asarīrā āyariyā taha uvajjhāyā muṇiyā"
"Aum" is one syllable made from the initials of the five parameshthis. It has been said: "Arihanta, Ashiri, Acharya, Upadhyaya, Muni" .

Thus, ओं नमः (oṃ namaḥ) is a short form of the Navkar Mantra.

About the spontaneous reverberation I don´t think it would happen with other common words. The power behind OM is of the source all of creation, this is why it reverberates so easily when spoken or thought of.

Test this it to confirm it. For me this is true.

If I repeat HOUSE 30 times. My mind doesn´t not spontaneously want to continue repeating it. It simply dies off and dissolves.

Repeat OM 30 times and it begins to repeat itself in your consciousness, it echoes and reverberates, in your mind.

ULTIMATELY WE HAVE TO MEDITATE MORE AND MORE AND MORE TO MERGE WITH THE STATE OF ONENESS.

PLEASE SEE ALSO http://www.meditationiseasy.com/mCorner/techniques/Om.htm

OM IS THE TOOL, THE PATH AND THE DESIRED GOAL, ALL IN ONE.
THAT´S WHAT IS HARD FOR US TO ACCEPT.

THEN IT JUST BECOMES OUR UNDENIABLE AND UNARGUABLE STATE OF BEING. THAT´S MY GOAL, TO MERGE WITH OM AND THUS ALL EXISTENCE. SAT-CHIT-ANANDA.

JUST BE OM, AND JUST BE.

"If I were to try to support this I would add that if all the universe is an expression of SAT-CHIT-ANANDA (being, consciousness and bliss as affirmed by many saints through experiental conclusion) that the universe must have a seed, a source of it´s beginning."

Hi Omkarblue
The universe is indeed an expression of Being, but part of this expression is beginnings and endings. In the most radical sense, the universe had no beginning and will have no end. The entire universe arises and falls Now because there is nothing but this 'moment' of now. Each moment is entirely fresh and new but for mind's insistence on continuity with an imaginary past and future. In a way, it's remarkable that the universe appears in such repetitive forms when there is nothing holding them in place. There's nothing at all preventing a second moon from appearing in the sky, or a tyrranasorus in your back yard beyond our conviction that it can't be so.

And so the universe needs no 'seed' or priciples or laws in order to come into being, and yet it will conform to the laws as they are understood. Gravity has won it's place in the repeating creation/destruction of the universe because we've become quite fond of it and aren't generally interested in trying to function without it.

So, does chanting "OM" bring about some sort of mind state or change? The only way to answer that is 'If you say it does'. My question would be, if it is one of your own creations, can it take you beyond your own creations?

No beginning and No End

Phroggy,

Right on about the No Beginning and No End. Unfortunately, we have to talk about beginnings and endings when focusing on what phase creation is in.

In Advaita Philosophy:
OM is considered to have 3, 5, or 6 phases.

In 3 phases
A - U - M
Creation (Brahma)- Preservation (Vishnu)- Destruction (Shiva) into Brahman the Atman, the Atman

In Jainism:
Aum is regarded to be a condensed form of reference to the five parameshthis, by their initials A+A+A+U+M (o3m). It has been said: "Arihanta, Ashiri, Acharya, Upadhyaya, Muni".

In Buddhism:
Buddhists place om at the beginning of their Vidya-Sadaksari or mystical formulary in six syllables (viz., om mani padme hum) As a seed syllable (bija mantra), it is also considered holy in Esoteric Buddhism.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aum

it would be cool to have moons and planets popping up at random wouldn´t it?

I JUST WANT TO MEDITATE AND MERGE WITH IT ALL.

I want....

dear omkarblue, please forgive but I don't like advertisements for particular gurus on this website. If everybody would do this it would turn into another e-bay site. And I don't think you will get anywhere as long as you "just want to meditate" or "want to merge with it all." Those are ego-trips pointing into the future. As long as you don't find a way to get out of your own way, you won't get anywhere. There is no "you", there is no future or past. Those are all just concepts clouding reality. If a Guru doesn't point this out over and over again he/she is not a real guru. All the blue pearls, all the shaktipats and kundalini experiences in the world won't get you anywhere unless you get out of your own way and realize that existence is nothing but an illusion/delusion/hallucination. There is no entity called "I". "I want" comes from deep sleep. Forget about all your "understanding" of concepts like enlightenment, samadhi, oneness...forget about all you have ever read, forget about what this or that guru says, forget about understanding anything. And then come into the moment, fresh and new, take a deep breath and dive into existence as it is. It's your true home. So simple and so hard. Thank you.

contradiction

Sorry, first I said existence is an illusion and then I said "dive into existence. It's your true home". Well, what I meant is that, yes, existence is an illusion. But when you realize existence as it is by diving into the Here and Now fresh and new, you begin to realize Nirvana in the Samsara, the ocean in the waves.... and then it is both, illusion and your true home. Does that make sense? Words, words, words...

Contradiction 2

Another contradiction, first I complained about concepts like Samadhi, enlightenment, oneness etc. and now I wrote about realizing Nirvana in Samsara, ocean in the waves....sorry, just more concepts. I think there are 2 ways of writing down your thoughts 1)you are interested and get involved and contribute whatever you have to offer and it really matters or 2) you are not really interested any more but you get involved and contribute whatever you have to offer because it's fun and doesn't matter in the least...because it's IN THE MIDST OF IT.

Real, Ilusionary and Phenomenal

Shankara helps to resolve this well. Real is what is eternal and changeless, so only SAT-CHIT-ANANDA (BEING, CONSCIOUSNESS, AND BLISS) the qualities behind the illusion of world are real.

The world is not real but it is phenomenal, meaning it offers a context of experience, though illusionary.

TODAY I AGAIN SPENT THE WAKING MOMENTS repeating to myself

I-AM-OM-AS-OM-AM-I
ALL-IS-OM-AS-OM-IS-ALL

and kept repeating it softly and easily to myself. I entered into a state of stillness of mind and deep peaceful. I fell into the witness state and perceived that the universe was communicating with me, co-creating, each step of the way. I felt everything was perfectly unfolding. I had fits of spontaneous laughter. All these reminded me of what I´ve read from the saints.

IT WAS GREAT AND THIS LITTLE MIND TOOL REALLY ZAPPED ME INTO WITNESS CONSCIOUSNESS. I WELCOME ALL TO TRY IT.

In spite of the apparent contradictions (words, words), I agree and this is where I was trying to go with it as well. There are all sorts of techniques using all sorts of creative priciples to produce all sorts of mind states and all sorts of experiences, and if this is what one is looking for to enhance the spiritual experience, and is doing this consciously, then of course there is no issue with it.

However, if what one is doing is seeking the Truth of their Being, all of that has to be set aside and it all becomes far more subtle and humbling.

I see your point

Mayasurfer,

I took out the promo on the OM contemplations. I just thought it was pretty cool and didn´t think about how it might sound comercial and all. Just my knaivety at work. If you met Gurumayi you would never think that. But in any case I took it out to avoid this. So it´s out of the blog.

About everything else, we all here know what we have to do is live the oneness and meditate as much as possible.

The rest is trying to share small insights that add to the sum of spiritual growth which each one contributes with his or her personal experiences, or else shut down the site and post one note MEDIATE.

Omkarblue:

Yes, I understand that there are various principles in operation, just as the example of gravity that I gave, but all of them are stories written within a dream and do not lead us out of the dream. More likely, they serve to distract us and keep us asleep, and this is my concern. If it is your goal to merge with something, you might create the experience of this merging, but it will come and it will go, just as all experiences do. You cannot in truth merge with what you already are, you can only come to realize what you are.

As an example, the Kundalini has arisen in this body, but there is no interest in the energy itself or what 'I' might do with it or experience from it. All of this is happening within the illusion and takes on a symbolic form as an EXPRESSION of my aspiration for Truth and not the CAUSE of it. Kundalini cannot cause Awakening even if it may be associated with it. A story has been written within the dream about spiritual energy, and so it must be played out within the dream, but if I am to 'Awaken' it will not be some energy that brings this about, but rather my willingness, devotion and my love of Truth. All the rest is a game, a part of the spiritual circus that mind dearly loves more than it loves Truth or Liberation.

Yes...

"but if I am to 'Awaken' it will not be some energy that brings this about, but rather my willingness, devotion and my love of Truth."

Yes, your surrender to the Truth will bring it about. The willingness, devotion and love are not even absolute requirements, only the surrender. Some probably "go" quite unwillingly... our will really doesn't count.

There must be a willingness to surrender. It is not a matter of will, if that implies choice, but simply the presence of a willingness. I don't believe realization of anything occurs without the willingness to realize. What is seen certainly will not be what is anticipated, and this may create the impression that willingness wasn't present, but at some level it clearly is. The willingness to risk the unknown in exchange for the known, for example.

Ya don't think...

Ya don't think folks can be driven to it through e.g. terrible suffering and hardship? Is there really a separation between 'inner' and 'outer'? Can anything happen without the universe coinciding? Can folks die physically without the willingness to go?

Nisargadatta: "The person is in unrest and resistance to the very end."

Yet, perhaps you may be right. Still, we don't get to choose whether we're willing or unwilling. There isn't even a scrap there for the ego ;-).
