The science of physics initially believed that all material is matter: When the evolution of scientific observation and with the aid of technology, the scientists discovered that matter is actually arrangement of atoms.
Further, discoveries revealed that atoms have a structure. It consists of Nuclei made of protons and neutrons and electrons that seemed to have no structure. Later it was discovered that protons and neutrons are also made of smaller particles called quarks.
And today, science claims that all the particles, all the carriers of forces, are excitation of string-like objects. According to this theory, quarks are not viewed as points anymore, but as one-dimensional strings made up of an infinite number of sub-quarks all around the string.
Theory Of Everything [TOE]
According to the string theory, elementary particles are loops of one-dimensional strings vibrating at dizzy speeds. The substance of all the particles and hence all atom and matter is one. The string theory is called as the Theory Of Everything [TOE]. This is one of the most fascinating theories of science because it proves the oneness of existence. The same vibrating string vibrates in infinite ways and becomes infinite particles. What is unifying and simple about a string is that all of the particles are all excitations of the same one object - the vibrating strings.
Science has finally concluded that everything is vibration. But this is what spirituality has been claiming from the beginning. Finally the old is looking new.
Spirituality had always explained, the more gross the matter; the lesser the frequency of vibrations; subtler the matter; higher the frequency of vibrations. Though all matter is constituted by the same vibrating strings, they resonate at different frequencies - depending on how gross or subtle the matter is. Thus, the difference between the gross physical body and the subtler mind is only in the difference in the frequency of vibrations. So, when you know how to tune into different frequencies, you can tune into the thought flow of others. You can trade and share minds.
SILENCE is fundamentally vibrations with the highest frequency. Haven't you noticed that the blades almost appear extinct when they rotate at a great speed? So, when the strings vibrate at their highest frequency; they almost seem like nothing which is silence. However, it is from these highest vibrations all the relatively lower vibrations originate. Hence, spiritual expression, everything comes from nothing.
Everything is born out of silence. Anything can be created from that state of silence. There is so much scientific truth to the expression, "When a thought is released from the seat of silence, a mere wish becomes a command to the universe." After all, isn't the smallest of particles enough to cause endless ripples in a still water lake?
Traditionally, whenever enlightened people discovered a place with high vibrations, they formulated and formed a place of worship in that location. The science behind places of worship is to create a space where people can come and inherit the vibrations of that place. When a man stands inside a rose garden long enough, won't he come out smelling roses? In experiencing a space of high vibrations long enough, you inherit the vibrations of that place. In fact, it is for this reason that people come to visit those who return from pilgrimage. The idea being, in the presence of those who have inherited the vibrations from places of pilgrimage, the visitors can in turn inherit vibrations. That is why it is foolish to argue, 'If god is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent, what is the necessity to to places of worship'. God may be omnipresent, but higher vibrations aren't. They are concentrated only in a few places.
While some spaces fill people with vibrations, some people fill spaces and vibrations. The idea behind inviting spiritually evolved souls to initiate new spaces, from temples to offices to homes, is because these people can fill spaces with their vibrations. In fact, a spiritually evolved person, apart from all other characteristics, is one who remains centered and attuned to vibrations of the higher frequency. That is why it is said even when a Master speaks his within is still silent. He is always internally tuned to the higher vibrations. And when a person or space is filled with higher vibrations; all things become possible. After all, all the relatively low frequencies of vibrations emanate from the high frequency vibrations.
Power of Non-Doing
However, vibrations can be transferred and inherited only in a state of non-doing. That's why significance of you being asked to sit silently in places of worship, after you are done with your ritualistic practices. That's the significance of sitting in a state of non-doing, either in a space of high vibrations or in the presence of spiritually evolved soul with high vibrations, the vibrations will be transferred unto you. That's why you are asked not to speak in the presence of the spiritually evolved, for it isn't time for doing, but it is time for non-doing. The power of non-doing is that it enables you to tune in and inherit the higher vibrations, and in the presence of higher vibrations, all things are possible. Everything is possible.
Robert Frost rightly put it when he said,
"We dance around in a ring and suppose,
but the secret sits in the middle and knows."
Also, Franz Kafka said,
"It is not necessary that you leave the house.
Remain at your table and listen.
Do not even listen; only wait.
Do not even wait; be wholly still and alone.
The world will present itself to you for its unmasking,
it can do nothing else, in ecstasy it will writhe at your feet."
So the spiritual expression"...where he sat became a temple."
Go searching.... Find'. Having found a SOURCE high in vibrations, make a temple in your heart to your SOURCE. And from that moment of connect, watch the way your life is led Higher Deeper Beyond.....
