Week 21: Check-In | As Above, So Below (Sutra 27)

Total knowledge is contained in the sound and symbol OM. (And please keep in mind that I do not use the word “total” lightly here either).

Everything–all that exists in the entire universe, within time, space, and all of life–is represented by and contained in, and within, the sound and symbol OM/AUM.

And OM/AUM stands as the most accurate symbol of the totality of existence/reality not only because of what it represents, but also because of how flawlessly complete it is in it’s communication of its message on infinite different levels and dimensions simultaneously.

When the word, symbol, and sound OM/AUM is contemplated on the deepest possible level, absolutely nothing gets lost or excluded.

OM/AUM is the word, sound, and symbol that contains all that there is to know in life, and, in Yoga, OM/AUM is also considered to be the true name and sound of “God.”

In Yoga, OM/AUM is the sound, word, and symbol that represents the one and true “Creator” and all that exists within all of creation.

OM is both the Source and the True Self that we seek to connect to/with within us and all around us through deep meditation and contemplation.

In the Christian Bible, it is written that first came “the word.”

From “the word” came light that was brought forth by the intention of the Source/Creator called “God.” The word was spoken, and from that intention/command/creative force came all that exists throughout space and time.

In this light, Heaven and Earth, and all of the creatures within it was created by “God,” before “God” then created man and his counterpart, woman, in his own image, to serve as the form of creation that has ecological dominance over all other creatures.
