Here’s an excerpt from “The Unknown Mother”, today on The Reading Guru. Enjoy reading!
That laser-like look of intensity took over Matrina’s eyes. I could tell she was about to go off on one of her profound tangents. I tried to concentrate, a sugar headache coming on.
“The science of Cymatics reveals how vibration creates form. It reveals our birth—for we, like the sand, are subject to vibration. Some unseen, unheard song is creating us—singing us into being. We are the sand upon the vibrating plate, taking shape into our existence, believing we are the peaks and points that take form, and believing we are this or that. In reality, we’re malleable, moldable, and at the mercy of the Great Sound. For if this great sound were to cease or be disrupted, these mighty houses we’ve constructed would disperse like so many grains of sand flung to the wind.
“Something is conscious of us. It listens as it plays upon the instruments that we are. It takes delight in the cacophony, an orchestration so grand it is far beyond our contemplation. It is masterful, elegant, swift, and awesome. It is the Song of the Universe—and more. It is our Composer, and one who loves beyond conditions, beyond the beyond. If the law of ‘as above, so below’ holds true, then we too are composers. We too sing songs that breathe shape into reality. But are we listening? Are we paying attention to the compositions we create?
“What is our rhythm? What order are we singing out of the chaos? Are we in harmony with the Great Sound? Do we breed forgiveness or hatred with the words we speak? Do we give form to self-pity and blame or to maturity and wisdom? Do we relinquish our masterpiece to our reasoning minds, ignoring the awkward thud that deflates our spirit? Do we allow the voices of others to influence our melody with fear or with hope? What are the consequences to our choices? Someone is always listening. What are you saying?
“In essence, our words do not matter. They are but sand upon a plate. You are the vibration that stirs the sand. You are the energy that forms the peaks and points and geometric patterns. Where is your faith? In words? In meanings that were forced upon you? Or is your faith in your own musicianship? Can an artist infuse hatred with love, fear with love, resentment with love, violence with love? Yes! Reclaim the symbols and be Love, sing Love, create Love, perpetuate Love. Make sure the music that everyone hears in your presence is the Divine Song, no matter what.”
“Thank you, Matrina. That’s one hell of a bedtime story.”
