Last week I talked awhile on the topic of the magic of water, and this week it is the turn of sound.
This article about music caught my attention some time ago. It was then of some interest to me, but other topics took over my daily activity. And at that time the notion that the topic might be related to spiritual matters did not fully occur to me. But when I lately saw an article on the 'Hindu'/Buddhist AUM mantra, I woke up.
It is said that chanting the AUM mantra is able to create an event inside the nervous system which can then become an object of concentration and meditation, and also a focal point for expanding physical and emotional awareness. There are many testimonies to that effect.
Importantly, therefore, we could say that psychiatry (a more modern development and not as respected as it once was) is redundant; that depression has a known cure. We need not be anything but positive if we would choose to be so.
Likely to create more heated debate, perhaps, is the notion that the Jewish/Christian word used at the end of prayer - Amen - and the Muslim equivalent - Ameen - stem from the AUM mantra. I think it is worthwhile viewing this link to read and listen to more on this topic.
In fact, this Rosicrucian article confirms the preceding link.
