Thoughts On Spiritual Science #4
By Atom Bergstrom
Re: You’re obviously more downbeat about light than Dr. Jacob Liberman, author of Luminous Life: How the Science of Light Unlocks the Art of Living, 2018.
Yes, No, Maybe.
I’m not anti-light.
According to Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) …
“God is his own Devil.”
Light is the Actor.
Sound is the Director.
The Audible Life Stream is the Producer.
“Lights! Camera! Action”
This driving cadence is shouted through a megaphone, not a flashlight.
Light is the Luminous Universe.
Sound is the Soniferous Universe.
We see the lightning first, and hear the thunder last.
L-u-ci-fer (radiant light energy) let’s you see far.
Yet the thunder happened first, and the lightning happened last.
Strike a match lightly (pardon the pun), and there’s only sound, no light.
Strike it harder, and you have both sound and light.
Optical telescopes can only be used at nighttime.
Radio telescopes can be used both day and night.
Radio waves aren’t blocked by clouds and are mostly unaffected by Earth’s atmosphere.
Radio waves penetrate interstellar gas better than light waves.
Light can’t escape from a black hole. Sound can.
According to “Strange but True: Black Holes Sing Although sound cannot be heard in space, it can sometimes be seen,” Scientific American, 2018 …
“In the dark heart of the Perseus galaxy cluster, 300 million light-years from Earth, a supermassive black hole has been singing the same note for 2.5 billion years. Its tone registers 57 octaves below middle C and, according to scientists at NASA’s Chandra X-Ray Center, is a resounding B-flat.”
Agam Prasad Mathur (Radhasoami Faith: A Historical Study, 1974) wrote …
“The founders assert that surat-shabd-yoga is an improvement upon sahaj yoga of the medieval saints — shagal-i-awaz of sufis, pranayam and hathyoga of Hinduism. They base their spiritual practice upon the theory of sound. According to the founders, sound is the real guide of the spirit-entity. As in a dark and dense forest, they argue, one can find out the way to destination by catching the sound coming from a certain direction, so a practitioner of surat-shabd-yoga listens intuitively to the spiritual sounds resounding in the different regions of creation. In the course of spiritual practice, the spirit-entity can catch the eternal sound-current which is refulgently resonant in the highest region. Then alone it can attain the highest ecstasy and bliss leading to true salvation.”
There are two Sound Currents …
Varnatmak is expressible sonics — it can be both spoken and written.
Dhunatmak is inexpressible primal sonics — it can’t be spoken and written.
Dhunatmak is known by two names …
Radha Soami is usually imprecisely defined as “Lord of the Soul.”
More precisely, it means “Idea’s Oscillation.”
Still more precisely, Radha Soami can be translated as “Oscillation rebounding to Idea.”
Religion is Latin for religiare, “to be bound back.”
Soami Radha is actually “Idea’s Oscillation” — Soami is the “ocean,” and Radha is the “wave.”
Soami Radha is also defined as “God’s Commotion” (commotion is Latin for “move together”).
Reversing the polarity, Radha Soami is “Commotion returning to God,” the Acausal Cause of All the Commotion in the First Place.
Kal is an offshoot current of the Radhasoami current.
The flow of Time is derived from Idea’s Oscillation.
Kal is Father Time.
Adya is Mother Nature.
Together they are the plural God of Genesis — Elohim.
Genesis 1:26 recounts …
“And God said, Let US make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness: and let THEM have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”
According to Adano Ley …
“Satan is the Father of Lies. Consciousness is dualistic, phenomenal.
“This light energy is absorbed and observed in our environment as a dualistic principle.
“It can be measured as a wave and it can be measured as a corpuscle.
“And, therefore, there is no permanency and reality in light, and God is not light, for God is sound.
“Therefore, the Christ intelligence, or the conscience, is indicating that we can’t trust our consciousness, which determines its existence by light.”
