"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." John 1:1 King James Version
AUM commonly known as OM is the essential vibration of creation. According to spiritual tradition everything was created from vibration and OM represents the vibration of creation and the universe and can be felt during deep meditation.
OM is believed to be the sound present at the beginning of the universe from which all creation spawned. When we consider that all perceived matter is condensed energy vibrating at certain frequencies that keeps sub atomic particles together then idea that creation originated from a vibration/sound is plausible.
AUM consists or the three basic sounds; A-U-M. These are the sounds that we can utter without the use of our tongue. Press your tongue down with your finger and you will see that the only sounds you can make are A-U-M. The sound commonly uttered as “O” is what we utter as we attempt to blend A and U together (O is pronounced as diphthong blending A and U together). When we utter AUM we can feel the vibration move upwards from our stomach and chest to the head. A and U generate a vibration from the stomach and chest while with M we feel the vibration in our head.
These three sounds work in the same was as the three basic colours from which all other colours are derived. From AUM all other sounds and vibrations can be created. We position our tongue in various locations in our pallet and use the vibration of the basic sounds A-U-M to produce all other sounds. As all sounds/vibrations originate from OM/AUM the traditional view that the sound represents creation makes sense.
Although we associate OM chanting with eastern traditions of Hinduism and Buddhism it is prevalent in Christianity. If you observe “AMEN” chanting from ceremonies in the Vatican or the Greek Orthodox priests of Mount Athos, they utter the “AM” part of AMEN in the same was as OM (i.e. prolonged AU and M). It seems that there is a shared knowledge between spiritual traditions and religions that has been lost or not shared with the masses. (Read more)
Music, art concerned with combining vocal or instrumental sounds for beauty of form or emotional expression, usually according to cultural standards of rhythm, melody, and, in most Western music, harmony. Both the simple folk song and the complex electronic composition belong to the same activity, music. Both are humanly engineered; both are conceptual and auditory, and these factors have been present in music of all styles and in all periods of history, throughout the world.
Music is an art that, in one guise or another, permeates every human society. Modern music is heard in a bewildering profusion of styles, many of them contemporary, others engendered in past eras. Music is a protean art; it lends itself easily to alliances with words, as in song, and with physical movement, as in dance. Throughout history, music has been an important adjunct to ritual and drama and has been credited with the capacity to reflect and influence human emotion. Popular culture has consistently exploited these possibilities, most conspicuously today by means of radio, film, television, musical theatre, and the Internet. The implications of the uses of music in psychotherapy, geriatrics, and advertising testify to a faith in its power to affect human behaviour. Publications and recordings have effectively internationalized music in its most significant, as well as its most trivial, manifestations. Beyond all this, the teaching of music in primary and secondary schools has now attained virtually worldwide acceptance.
But the prevalence of music is nothing new, and its human importance has often been acknowledged. What seems curious is that, despite the universality of the art, no one until recent times has argued for its necessity. The ancient Greek philosopher Democritus explicitly denied any fundamental need for music: “For it was not necessity that separated it off, but it arose from the existing superfluity.” The view that music and the other arts are mere graces is still widespread, although the growth of psychological understanding of play and other symbolic activities has begun to weaken this tenacious belief.
Sound Therapy has been utilized in various cultures for thousands of years as a tool for healing. Whether through the use of mantras as with the Hindis, the Icaros (medicine melodies) of various Indigenous peoples from Central and South America, or Pythagoras' use of interval and frequency, these various techniques all have the same intention: to move us from a place of imbalance to a place of balance.
Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body. It is used to help diagnose the causes of pain, swelling and infection in the body’s internal organs and to examine a baby in pregnant women and the brain and hips in infants. It’s also used to help guide biopsies, diagnose heart conditions, and assess damage after a heart attack. Ultrasound is safe, noninvasive, and does not use ionizing radiation.
This procedure requires little to no special preparation. Your doctor will instruct you on how to prepare, including whether you should refrain from eating or drinking beforehand. Leave jewelry at home and wear loose, comfortable clothing. You may be asked to wear a gown.

The Kemetic Tree of Life represents a pattern of spiritual cultivation which enables one to envision and manifest the different faculties of the indwelling divinity and become a vehicle to allow God’s manifestation on earth.
0- Amen- This is not a faculty it is THE undifferentiated peace that is our true self. This is why it is not on the tree of life but far above it. Every religion in the world after their prayer incantates in some form the name of Amen. Who is the God of gods. We must eventually reconnect with Amen by using the Tree of Life to cultivate our spirit, through existence and lifetimes of unrelenting pursuit.
1- The 1st faculty on the Tree of Life represents Ausar, or the omnipresent faculty. This faculty represents the oneness of the universe. The basic particle from which everything is existence originates. It enables us not to separate anything from ourselves and to experience the true self. The one self. Ausar is the first tool that amen uses to govern existence.
2- The 2nd faculty on the Tree of life represents Tehuti, or the omniscient faculty. This faculty is the all-knowing faculty that has a series of 9 axioms. The Tehuti faculty enables us to manifest the indwelling divinity and to be able to resolve any problem. It is knowledge without thought tapping into the intuition or indwelling divinity. Unlike Sebek that is based on belief Tehuti is based on truth. It is the second tool that Amen uses to govern existence.
3- The 3rd faculty on the Tree of Life represents Seker, or the omnipotent faculty of the spirit. Seker is above Het-Heru because Seker enables one to be the divine by understanding that beauty lies within and being in synch with our destiny. This omnipotence is the 3rd tool that Amen uses to govern existence.
4- The 4th faculty on the Tree of Life represents Ma’at, or the divine law. This law is represented by 42 principles of Ma’at. Ma’at is a female faculty that represents the stage in which we no longer require guilt and conscience because we observe the law of heaven out of love and therefore the Ab (heart) is lighter than the feather and the Khu (spirit) is eternal.
5- The 5th Faculty on the Tree of Life represents HeruKhuti, or divine justice. This faculty establishes justice in the world, not by revenge or destruction, but instead by re-establishing the laws governing existence (MA’AT). Divine justice within our being consists of making peace, balance and harmony get achieved and restoring all to god’s order.
6- The 6th faculty on the Tree of Life represents Heru, or the will. This faculty is birthed by Auset and is beyond any animal desire. The will is successful only when the true self or indwelling divinity is victorious over anything – desires, emotions or lusts – which are contrary to the self. Heru is the Pa-heru (pharaoh) or in other words it means that your moral code is in concord with the divine essence and you are god on earth Pa-Heru.
7- The 7th faculty on the Tree of Life represents Het-Heru, or the imagination faculty. This faculty operates to create certain behavioral patterns. It must also be programmed because it is in this faculty that we could possibly perceive our happiness as contrary to the will of the indwelling divinity and therefore get stuck on a low level of the Tree.
8- The 8th faculty on the Tree of Life represents Sebek or the intellect faculty. Most people in Western society can only achieve Sebek. Intellect for the mere sake of intellect does not serve the purpose of the indwelling divinity but of Set. Sebek is an idea or belief based on programming. Sebek is only a correctly applied faculty in commune with Tehuti the omniscient faculty. Sebek is based on beliefs and can open or close the way to truth.
9- The 9th faculty on the Tree of Life represents Auset (Isis), The Goddess. This faculty is necessary to go into trance and reprogram your being. Auset is the vital part of reconstructing Ausar but first she must go through sorrows and give birth to Heru (the will) to overcome Set. Her determinants are devotion, receptivity and INTUITIVE. She is the source of trance and passion.
10- The 10th faculty on the Tree of Life is Geb. This faculty contains the electromagnetic body the khaibit and the molecular body the khab. The life force is governed by proper breath. It also includes the 5 organ systems notably the heart/small intestine, the lungs/large intestine, the liver/gall bladder, the spleen/stomach and the liver/bladder.
These seven Divisions of the Spirit correspond to [an] ultimately a potential infinitude of the patterns of energy organization of Spirit. [There] is organizing utility as well as tutorial value in this particular breakdown of Spirit, and it is an organization that is now hallowed by tradition.
The seven Divisions of the Spirit and their corresponding chakras are as follows:

Mathematics, as we know it today, is only a tool to symbolize quantities. Vortex-Based Mathematics (VBM) is completely different because it is a dynamic math that shows the relationships and thus the qualities of numbers rather than the quantities. Marko Rodin discovered a very intriguing number system within this circle. Marko knew he had stumbled upon something very profound. This circle with its hidden number sequence was the "Symbol of Enlightenment."
In the past few months, I just figured out, the more we studied Vortex Based Mathematics, The Golden Ratio, Geometry, and The Fibonacci Sequence, The more we believe that there`s a "Creator". And because of that, I think there's a high possibility that we might be living in a "computer simulation". Scientists have long used mathematics to describe the physical properties of the universe. But what if the universe itself is math?
The purpose of this book is to set students on the road to learning Modern Standard Arabic by equipping them with all the skills they need to read and write vowelised Arabic texts. Lessons: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18
Why do Muslims read the Quran in Arabic? Is the Quran translated into different languages? If so, what is the difference between the Arabic and the translated versions?
The Quran is only in Arabic. This is not to say that it cannot be translated, but the translation is not the same thing as the original text. However, the message of the oneness of God and confirming what one’s conscious already knows is available in all languages. Previous revelations were sent in the language of their people. We did not send any messenger but (speaking) in the language of his people, so that he might clearly convey the message to them (Quran 14:4).
The Quran is God’s final revelation and because Muhammad peace be upon him lived in Arabia, the Quran is in Arabic. And if We had made it a non-Arabic Qur’an, they would have said, “Why are its verses not explained in detail [in our language]? Is it a foreign [recitation] and an Arab [messenger]?” Say, “It is, for those who believe, a guidance and cure.” And those who do not believe – in their ears is deafness, and it is upon them blindness. Those are being called from a distant place (Quran 41:44).
Because the Quran is in Arabic does not mean that Arabs are superior to non-Arabs. Rather, all humans are equal. However, God chose to reveal His final message to mankind to a people who had a very high sensitivity and appreciation to the finest nuances of the language. The Arabs of the 7th century took great pride in their linguistic skills. The Quran is revealed in very precise Arabic. If the Quran is to be the final text, then its meaning must be preserved. In order to do that, the language itself must be very precise and defined.
Because the Quran was revealed in Arabic, scholars went to painstaking lengths to preserve the dialect, idioms, sayings, poetry of that language so that the correct understanding of Qur’an can be reached. This was always a priority for Muslim scholars, many of whom were not Arab.
When someone translates a text, their translation is not the same as the original text. It is rather their understanding of the meaning of the original text. There although translations can give one a general understanding of the text, they are not the equivalent to the actual text. For example, in American culture one often hears the expression “you are my dog” or “dog is man’s best friend.” As Americans who understand the place of dogs in this culture, we can easily understand not only the literal meaning of these phrases, but their deeper cultural connotations as well.
If these same phrases are translated into a language and culture that do not take dogs as pets, but rather view them as unclean and wild animals, a literal translation will not suffice. Rather it will require further commentary onto what these phrases mean in the original language and culture. Similarly, the Quran was revealed in Arabic in a particular context and must be understood in that context.
The Arabic language has a very complex system of grammar and word formation. One statement can mean many things, and this is only possible in the Arabic language. Arabic is syntactical which means it cannot be compared to any other languages in terms of grammatical rules.
The shortest wording without any loss in the meaning is only in the Arabic language. It is also the most advanced language amongst world languages in terms of eloquence, literature and fluency. Thus, no other language can express the meanings in the world.
Because Arabic is a highly developed language, a translation of a text like the Quran never fully convey its deeper message. Despite pre-Islamic Arabs being highly skilled in Arabic, the Quran’s literary style stunned all of the poets and language experts of the time.
Now if We had willed this [divine writ] to be a discourse in a non-Arabic tongue, they [who now reject it] would surely have said, “Why is it that its messages have not been spelled out clearly?” (Quran 41:44).
Ultimately, the Quran was primarily revealed in Arabic because it was revealed to Muhammad peace be upon him who lived in Arabia. Furthermore, the Arabic language is unique among other languages in its nuance, grammatical structure, syntax, and style. Despite the Quran being revealed in Arabic does not mean its general message cannot be translated in other languages. However, those translations are not called Quran because they are actually the words of the translator and not God Himself. Have more questions about the Quran? Call 877-WhyIslam.
