Type of Spiritual Experience


A description of the experience

Hazrat Inayat Khan – The Mysticism of Sound and Music

… observation shows that the whole universe is a single mechanism working by the law of rhythm.  The rise and fall of the waves, the ebb and flow of the tide, the waxing and waning of the moon, the sunrise and sunset, the change of the seasons, the moving of the earth and of the planets – the whole cosmic system and the constitution of the entire universe are working under the law of rhythm. 

Cycles of rhythm, with major and minor cycles interpenetrating, uphold the whole creation in their swing. 

This demonstrates the origin of manifestation, motion has sprung from the still life and every motion must necessarily result in  a dual aspect…

Rhythm is hidden under the root of every activity, constructive or destructive … the whole mechanism of the universe is based on the law of rhythm
