One thing that our ancient and modern mystics have probably asked themselves is “What was the VERY FIRST thing that God created?”. In other words, out of the unimaginably vast, divinely cosmic, beginingless-endless potential Thought of what God was and is before the birth of The Universe… what did He/She/It first create? So, what was the first to come out of THAT?
Some may say The Stars… but, no. That can not be it. Stars come in various masses, sizes and states. Which was first?
Some may say a Black Hole… but, no. That can not be it. A Black Hole would absorb Life, not unlimitedly express it.
Some may say The Sun… but, no. Our Sun is just one of the countless trillions of stars in the countless trillions of galaxies.
Some may say The Earth… but, no. That can not be it. The Earth is just one of countless trillions of planets revolving one of the countless trillions stars.
Some may say Man… but, no. That can not be it. Mordern man has only been around 200,000 years. Yet, scientists estimate that the birth of The Universe was about 14 billion years ago.
So, what could have been THE VERY FIRST thing to emerge from The Universal Mind?
Once we eliminate all the other possible options… we come down to two probable answers.
The very first thing to emerge from the vast, eternal void was either LIGHT or a SOUND.
Comparing these two possibilities, Light is quickly eliminated because Light can easily be turned off. In other words, we can close our eyes to cut Light out from our experience. We can find a closet, a cave, a dungeon, or a thick blanket to block out light if we want to be in total darkness. However, sound is a different matter entirely.
Try this experiment. As you are lying in bed and it is dark, close your eyes and LISTEN to how many sounds you hear. You might hear the clock ticking, traffic, the heater, your heartbeat, your partner snoring, your own breathing, your own heartbeat, blankets ruffling, the river, a leaky faucet, the air conditioner… So, even with your eyes closed and in total darkness, there is sound. Many different sounds!
… and they ALL had to have been born from ONE SOUND. That FIRST Primordial sound.
