+ Life has no secrets

There is nothing to search for. Searching comes from the desire of more, and there is no more than that which is one.

Life has no secrets. It is impossible, because life is that which is one and it takes more than one to have a secret. So why do people ask what it is and where to find it. The answer lies in the previous sentence. Life is that which is one, so in a world where there seems to be more than one there is no life. In other words, even though the oneness of life is used to experience a world, where it seems to be divided into more than one, it is not there – just like a physical body is not in a dream, regardless it is the host of it.

Though some like to think, that the word of god is something written, but there is nothing in the New Testament that indicates that. In fact the word of god can neither be written or spoken.

In the New Testament the echo of life is called ´The Word of God´: »In the origin The Word had been existing and That Word had been existing with God and That Word was himself God.« John 1:1, Aramaic Bible in Plain English.

Unfortunately those, who follow the written word of the New Testament, think what is written there is ´The Word of God´. But god cannot read or write, neither can it create a world, where there seems to be more than one, as god is ´that which is one´ and it takes more than one to read, write or create something.

Yet an echo of the oneness of life can be heard and felt in the world. Christianity calls this echo for The Word of God, and in Eastern religions it is often symbolised by the words Aum and Sohang. You could say that the oneness of life makes this echo to call you home. It is of course a metaphor. The oneness of life does not need to call you home, because there is no difference between that which is you and the oneness of life.

A person believing to be in a world where there seems to be more than one is imagining to be outside of that which is one, and there is nothing there.

To leave the oneness of life is not possible, but it is possible to believe so. This article is written within the context of the belief, that you are living in a world where life is divided into more than one. It is within this context, hearing or feeling the echo of that which is life is a call for going home.

The sound of echo of life is not a word that can be written or spoken. Yet it can be heard and felt, which is very easy. But hardly anybody want that, as to appear as someone special in a world where there seems to be more than one you must be right, because being wrong turns you into nobody. That is however the prerequisite for hearing and/or feeling he echo of life – or rather it is to not believe being someone specific

Approaching the echo of life through The Word of God may be even more confusing than the endless chanting of ´Aum´ or ´Sohang´, as it is not a word that can be spoken.

No chanting or any other action like that is necessary to hear/feel the vibration, that is symbolized by the word Aum. It comes to you automatically, when you do not differentiate the sounds of the world but include them all. In other words, when you do not focus or concentrate.

No chanting or reading in scriptures are necessary to hear or feel the vibration that Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolises. It comes to you automatically, when the apparent difference of the vibes in the world does not make a difference, which they does not do, if you do not try to exclude any of them, as if there are more than one. In other words, when you do not focus or concentrate on something specific you are not someone specific but the unpronounceable vibration Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolises.

The vibration Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolises is not a secret …
… though it appear to be so, if you are searching for an elitist understanding of it rather than actually hearing or feeling the vibration, which can be heard or felt whenever you do not want to hear or feel anything specific in the world.

When you hear or feel the unpronounceable echo of life, the sense of an ´I´ disappears. Thus there is nothing to transform.

For ages people have been chanted Aum and Sohang or speculated about the meaning of The Word of God, assuming that if they just kept going on hard enough, the secret behind them would miraculous be revealed. But only the ego does miracles and seduce to believe there is something hidden to be revealed. The oneness of life has nothing to reveal, because there is no more than that which is one – and it takes more than one to reveal something.

Many may already have heard or felt the echo of life coming from the edge of the universe, but as they are biassed towards something mysterious and sensational, they do not pay attention to the very quiet humming, that constantly is there, as without it the universe could not be experienced as if it is there.

It only takes one ´chant´ of Aum or Sohang to hear of feel the echo of life. That is, if you are not looking for peak experiences of an almighty god, love or something mysterious and sensational that can be mentally explained, but are not looking for anything at all.

To hear the echo of life …
… slowly say A-U-M. Say the first two letters AU to tune in and from there on very slowly continue with M, that you hardly speak but rather whisper until you say nothing and there is a gentle humming coming from somewhere in the distance. This is the echo of the oneness of life.

This is the Hindi symbol of ´sohang´– grabbed on the web. <i>The graphic is grabbed from the web</i>.

You can also get in touch with this distant humming by saying sohang – eventually combined with listening to the sound coming from the breath. Say so when breathing in, and after a tiny break say hang when breathing out. The so is not really important, except for tuning in. The same applies to the first part of hang. After having said so-ha(n) you remain on (a)ng at the end of breathing out, and then let the sound continue by itself – what remains without you saying anything is the humming, that is the echo of life.

Another way to hear the echo of life is to stop focusing on any sound in particular until you cannot distinguishing the sounds that you hear from each other, so that they turn into one sound, namely the echo that which is one, which is another name for that which is life.

You do not have to pray or meditate in certain postures wearing special clothes or be in a special place to hear the echo of life, neither is stillness and purity inside or outside of you needed, as long as you are devoted to what you are doing. One of the first times I heard the humming from the edge of the universe, I was busy handing out flyers on a pedestrian street, and just like that the sum of all sounds turned into a distant humming that was ´louder ´ than the noisy street, and the sum of all feelings turned everything into one transparent feeling.

Knowing it is there, it is easier to connect with it
When I was a child, I preferred the music from a radio station called Radio Luxembourg. The station was very hard to find on a radio in my country, because it was on a frequency located between two very noisy stations. But as I knew of its existence and also where to look, my determination mixed with the finest subtlety got me there.

And now that you know about the humming of life from the edge of the universe, you should be able in the same manner to tune into it. If there may appear to be too much noise in the head – especially the left side can be full of noise from the working of the brain – listen to your right side without focusing on anything.

To feel the echo of life
Apart from hearing the vibration, that Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolises, you can also feel it – especially if you are emotional minded. Just do the same steps as above but put more weight onto feeling it. The feeling of it can be compared to the bodily sensation of drinking Coca-Cola but more subtle and all over the body in a bubbling or tingling way – or like sensing the purring of a cat in your whole body.

The feeling of AUM / Sohang can be a quiver in the whole body or part of it, but with no definitive borders. Yet it is not the body that you feel. It is rather like when like when an anaesthesia – for example one that a dentist has made in the mouth – stops working. You feel something, but it is not as if it is the body you feel.

In more intense moments it feels like everything is spinning – not just in the body but also outside of it, as if there is no transition between it and the appearances that seems to be outside of it. If going with this flow, you will forget about the body or anything else that is not one, so there is no memory to hide, there is nothing but the oneness of that which is life.

This is in Alexius´ Enlightened Non Teachings called the enlightenment of that which is one, but that is a story for another article, as this one is devoted to the glimpses of it – especially in the form of hearing or feeling the vibration that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolise. See the appendix regarding the enlightenment of that which is one versus glimpses of it.

Feeling or hearing the echo of the primordial vibration is basically the same – like two sides of the same coin. It is not advisable though trying to encompass both at the same time. We are only geared to be fully devoted to one thing at a time. In my case I am more into hearing than feeling, so it took me a long time to feel the echo of life, and when I finally did – after several years – the believe in being someone specific called Alexius was momentarily undone, so there was nothing definable fencing off the aspect of feeling the enlightenment of that which is one.

See Last night I died again from the world, if you want to read about the night I finally died from the outer senses of feeling a world, where there seems to be more than one.

nov-21-davidopeWhat does it sound like?
The sound, that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolises, can be compared to the sound of a vacuum cleaner. I have heard people complaining about their neighbour, who they think is vacuuming while they are meditating. Most likely though the neighbour is at sleep and you are not hearing the distant sound of a vacuum cleaner but the distant vibration from the edge of the universe that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolises. When looking for a big and special experience, one may brush off something so simple as the gentle humming coming from nowhere in specific.

This humming can also be compared to the distant sound of the air conditioning in a big place like a supermarket or an airport. The sound from the waves of the sea is partly reminiscent of it.

Now that you know, what Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolises, you can tune into this humming, whenever there is no need for you to appear as if you are someone specific. My approach is the same as when I sometimes check my pocket to hear or feel, if the key to my apartment is still there. After one touch I know, I have the key to my home.

The echo of life originates from nothing
Maybe you may imagine the oneness of life as something very big, but it is smaller than the size of a pencil dot. In fact it has no size, because it is without time and space. That could be why somebody once said, that it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a human to go to heaven.

In a world where there seems to be more than one, you got be and have more than others. It can be more in a materialistic, moral or so-called spiritual way. It does not matter, as long as you appear to be good and separated from those judged to be bad, the belief in separation is enhanced and therefore also you as someone definitive.

In order to experience a world where there seems to be more than one, you must constantly look for more. Maybe more power, money, energy, love, peace or simply something larger than life, so the smallness of life seems to be nothing.

But before there was something there was nothing, so everything that appears to be something, do so because of nothing, which means it is everywhere and therefore everything. So when you are nothing, there is no more to be or have, and therefore no such needs.

Life has nothing to give, because life is that which is one and it takes more than one to give something
Let us return to the idea of the so-called secrets of life. What secrets does life hide? None. Did I ask you to buy a book of mine or take a special course to know what Aum, Sohang and The Word of God is a symbol of? No, and neither did I wait until the end of the article to tell you how to hear or feel the echo of life. You got it right away without beating about the bush.

If you have peculiar questions like: What is life and what is the meaning of it, you have separated yourself from it – or rather imagined this to be possible, because separation from that which is one is not possible. To make oneness appear as is not real and separation as it is, you imagine to live in a world where there seems to be more than one, so it is possible to be and have more than one.

But whatever you imagine to get more of, you are bound to lose it, because no imagination lasts. Yet you like to believe, that if you try hard enough, the everlasting secret of life will be revealed especially to you. But life has nothing, because life is that which is one and it takes more than one to have something.

The above article is my way of communicating, how one actually can hear and feel the echo of life. To use ´Aum´ or ´Sohang´ as a stepping stone for that is not a new idea, but so far it has mostly been promoted in mysterious ways by people, who do not hear or feel it themselves, but hope that by repeating those words in some robotic way a miracle will happen.

Neither the word´Aum´ or ´Sohang´ were my entrance to hearing or feeling the vibration, that they symbolise. Since my teenage years I have been used to be ´lifted´ by this humming – for example while watching a movie, having a walk with my parents or sitting all by myself in a park. And so when I was around 40 years old it suddenly dawned on me, that this is what people are trying to reach, when repeating ´Aum´ or ´Sohang´.

This humming, however, cannot be reached. It is rather the humming that reaches you, when you in a split second cross the bridge of hearing something specific into hearing nothing specific, which can happen in the transition between saying one of those words and not saying them. It is the sound of silence – not because it is stillness, but because it silence you, which feels neither like falling or flying.

Even though you and I may appear as very different in a world where there seems to be more than one, what makes it possible for us experience such a world is the same, namely the oneness of life, so when I can hear and feel the echo, of it so can you.


APPENDIX:
To hear or feel the vibration that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolises is to have a glimpse of the enlightenment of that which is one
As it takes more than one to experience something, the enlightenment of that which is one cannot be experienced. Yet glimpses of it can be experienced in the form of seeing, hearing, feeling or tasting it. In other words, to hear or feel the vibration that Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolises is to have a glimpse of the enlightenment of that which is one.

The article Beyond the senses – or the outer senses versus the inner ones elaborates on the enlightenment of that which is one versus glimpses of it. Below are links to articles that goes more in-depth with this – plus the other aspects of having glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one:
