What is the Sound Current?
The Sound Current is the basis of all life. It is the audible stream of energy that comes from the heart of God. It is the spiritual energy on which a person returns to the heart of God. The Sound Current is mentioned or studied in many religions. In the Christian Bible, it is referred to as “the Word.” There is a yoga tradition that focuses on the Sound Current called Shabda Yoga. In MSIA, the sacred tones chanted in spiritual exercises are in harmony with the Sound Current of God.
The Sound Current is the true self. When you are in the Sound Current, you may feel a vibration, a rhythm, a hum, a tone. If you are with the Beloved, you don’t need anything else because you’re riding right in the center of the Sound Current, and like the center of the storm, it is quiet and calm. What we do in spiritual exercises is to work towards the center, towards the Sound, the true self, the Beloved.
