To Enjoy the Sound Current

The Word, the Voice of the Sugmad [God], goes forth like a wave from the center of a pond and sings Its way through all the planes in many different songs and melodies. Each is the living Word, creating and giving life to everything in each world. By its very life—this ECK, the essence of the Sugmad, the Spirit of all things—life exists.

When It reaches the end of the worlds It returns like the wave, gathering up all Souls that are ready to do God’s work. They are returned to the true home and become Co-workers with God, having completed their mission in life.

The Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad, Book One, p. 68

Read the above passage aloud to yourself.  Then think for a moment—what is your favorite musical instrument, sound, or melody?  Close your eyes, and imagine that you can hear it.  Let it fill you with love.  The Mahanta can show you where that Sound originates in the higher worlds.  Stay with this contemplation for twenty minutes or more.

*          *          *

During your day, take special notice of the harmony of life around you. There will be something that speaks to your mission in this life.
