Everything, every substance, every material object, everything, including feelings and thoughts and emanations, whether known or unknown to the human mind, is alive. The essential nature of everything, its “suchness,” is vibration. It is the rate of vibration that differs from one thing to another. The forms and manifestations are not the thing itself, they are masks concealing the underlying unique vibration that is always present.

The outer form, the mask, has a purpose. It is the means by which Ananda, or Bliss, is expressed and experienced. Ananda is the vibration seeing itself wherever it turns, knowing and delighting in its recognition of itself, in its experience of the cosmic secret of its own existence.

The vibrations of the universe, countless in number, constantly resolve themselves into a single note through the law of attraction. This note, not manifested through the differentiated forms of creation, but rather as the Sole Reality, is forever sounding, unrestrained by duration or boundary. It is called Love.

  1. I ws thinking about this as Steve and I picked the cherries from our backyard tree yesterday; a yearly ritual where we move together without hardly a word, working together to gather the fruits of a tree which offers both sweet and sour cherries, much like the life we’ve had. It’s both. I offered prayers of gratitude for the beauty and bounty offered by our moss covered friend, thanking it for being so generous once again. This understanding of vibration is one I have come to as well, and it helps me check in with what I might be radiating at any given time. Thanks for the posts, they’re wonderful and reflective.

  2. I love your image of the cherry tree bearing both sweet and sour fruit, like life. The sour fruit is also food, just as much as the sweet. What nutrition is received from both kinds of experiences is a real question, isn’t it? Thank you, Patti.
