Magnetism of beings and objects

When a person prepares something, he not only puts his magnetism into it, but also the voice of his soul is reproduced in the thing that he is preparing. For example, for an intuitive person it is not difficult to determine the thoughts of the cook based on the food offered to him. Not only the level of development of the cook, but also what he was thinking about at that particular moment when he was preparing food - everything is reproduced in it. If the cook was annoyed while cooking, if she grumbled, if she felt unhappy, if she sighed in grief, all this appears before us along with the food she has prepared. It is the knowledge of this fact that makes the Hindus invite as a cook a high caste Brahmin, whose evolution is high, whose life is pure, whose thoughts are lofty. This is not only a custom of the past, it is a modern custom: the Brahmin, who is sometimes the Guru - the teacher for other castes - may also be the cook. In addition, in ancient times, when the human personality was strongly manifested in everything that she did, each person, regardless of the degree of his life situation, knew how to cook and prepare dishes for himself and for his friends; and the one who invited relatives or friends to his home and put in front of them his own prepared dishes, thereby showed a sign of great respect and affection.

 

The main thing was not the dish; the main thing was the thought placed in it.

Everything edible or delicacy, everything that we bring to a friend with the thought of love, can lead to a harmonious, happy result.

This means that every little thing, given or received with love, with a harmonious and good thought, is of great value.

Because it's not about the subject, but what is behind it.

 

Nowadays, life seems to leave out a lot of personal things. But whether in the East or in the West, there was a time when the art of weaving or knitting clothes was known to every little girl; and it was a custom to give a brother or sister, a lover or a relative some little thing made with your own hands. Now the item is easy to buy in the store; no one knows who made it and how: reluctantly and gruntingly or otherwise. Now it remains a mystery in what state the worker was at that moment and what he invested in the objects he created. The girl, while sewing for the one she loves, with every stitch she makes naturally conveys her thought; if she does the work with love and strong feeling, then each stitch creates a new thought; he expresses this living thought of love, thereby internally providing the help that every soul needs. But wagons, carriages and ships that are used at risk to human life, who were they made by? Who knows what the state of mind of the Titanic builders was like? Was there a peacemaker among them who taught them to maintain a certain rhythm of the mind during its construction? Everything that has ever been created carries a magnetic influence. If the work was done with unnecessary thought, it means dangers awaiting people on a ship, in a train car or in a car. Very often you find problems that have no apparent reason, as if something broke for no material reason. The thought of destruction was introduced into the creation of this thing. She works through her; it is something more alive than the thing itself. The same thing happens when a house is being built. Thoughts are given to it by those who built it, who worked on the project - everything counts.

 

Thought attached to things is a life force, more precisely, it can be called a vibrational force.

In the concept of the mystics, it is believed that vibrations can have three aspects: audibility, visibility and perceptibility.

So, vibrations placed in an object are never visible or audible; they are only perceptible.

 

Perceptible for what? For the intuitive ability of a person. But this does not mean that the one who has lost the intuitive ability does not feel them, he also feels them, but unconsciously. In short, this means that there is a thought associated with all things done individually or collectively, and this thought brings the corresponding results. The influence placed on things corresponds to the intensity of the feeling. The note resonates according to the intensity of the impact on it. If you just play a note on the piano, it will continue to resonate for a certain amount of time; but if you press a key with a lower intensity, it will resonate for a shorter time. Resonance corresponds to the strength with which you strike the key, but at the same time depends on the instrument on which you play that note. For one instrument, the strings will vibrate for a long time; the other has a short one. And the resonance is also influenced by the way you choose to excite the vibrations, with the help of which the effect is produced.

 

God exists in all things; but an object is only a tool, and a person is life itself. Man fills the object with life.

When a certain thing is created, it is at this time that life is invested in it, which goes on and on, like breathing in the body.

 

It also gives us a hint that when we bring flowers to the sick person and together with them we bring him a healing thought, the flowers convey that thought; and when the sick person looks at the flowers, he receives from them the healing that was put into them. Everything edible or delicacy, everything that we bring to a friend with the thought of love, can lead to a harmonious, happy result. This means that every little thing, given or received with love, with a harmonious and good thought, is of great value. Because it's not about the subject, but what is behind it. Does this not teach us that it is not only the creation or manufacture of things in our daily life that matters, but also the giving of these things with a harmonious, constructive thought so that our work can have a thousand times greater effect and real value? This teaches us that by creating a certain thing, we are doing something very important, if we do it with such an attitude that we do not just create this thing, but make it live. Doesn't this open up before us a wide field of activity that we can perform easily, without much effort or high cost? In terms of its results, such work can be much more important than one might think or imagine. Isn't it also a great blessing to be able to do something important without any external pretensions? Even when a person writes a letter, sometimes he puts into it what words cannot express; and yet the letter conveys it. There may be just one word written with the love behind it, but that word will probably have a greater effect than a thousand others. Can't we hear the letter almost speak? It is not just what is written in it; it conveys to us the personality of the writer, what mood he was in, what his evolution was, his pleasure and discontent, his joys and sorrows; the letter conveys more than is written in it. Remember the great souls who came to earth at different times; conditions opposed them, and they met difficulties at every step in doing what they wanted to do; and yet they created a voice, a living voice. This voice lasts a long time after their departure and spreads over time to the entire universe, doing what they once wished for. It may have taken centuries for their thought to come true, but they created it as something valuable, something beyond human understanding. If we could only understand what spirit is, we would be much stronger than now, revere the human being. We trust a person so little, we believe in him so little, we respect him so little, we value a person's capabilities so low. If we only knew what is behind each strong or weak soul, we would understand that it has all the possibilities, and we would never underestimate anyone and would not lose respect for any person, despite everything that he may be deprived; we would comprehend that it is the Creator who creates by means of everything various forms; and all this was conceived, prepared, made and accomplished by one Being acting through this world of diversity.

 

 

This is a copy of Chapter 4 from the book "Mysticism of Sound", written by Hazrat Inayat Khan (July 5, 1882 - February 5, 1927) - an outstanding Indian musician and philosopher, Sufi, who preached Sufism. Inayat Khan was descended from a cousin of Tippu Sultan, the famous ruler of Mysore in the 18th century. His grandfather, Maula Baksh, was a renowned court musician, founder of the Baroda Academy of Music, which taught Indian classical music. Inayat Khan's father, Rahmat Khan, was also a musician, because from early childhood the boy grew up in an atmosphere of music, which began to play an important role in his life. The boy studied diligently, while discovering a deep understanding of the world, he was especially attracted by philosophy and religion. This continued until his eighteenth birthday, when he began to travel to India with concerts. During these travels, a dizzying fame came to him as a musician. At the court of Nizam of Hyderabad (Mahbub Ali Khan, Asaf Jah VI), he was awarded the title "New Tansen", after the great Indian mystic and singer Tansen (1506-1589). In northern India, Inayata will be called the "Morning Star of Musical Revival."

In addition to music, he searched on his travels for acquaintances and conversations with sages and philosophers, among whom there were people of different religions in India at that time: Muslims, Sikhs, Hindus, Buddhists. Of the thousands of religions that exist in India, he is most attracted to the Sufis, he likes their meekness on the one hand, and their directness on the other. Music for them is a way of bringing oneself into a state of divine delight, a way of rejecting duality, drawing closer to God, touching him, losing "I". This state is called Vajad, or Hal.

It is known that a Sufi can achieve the highest degree of perfection only by having a mentor - a murshid. From that time on, Inayat Khan began to seek initiation, but for some mysterious reason the local teachers refuse to take him to their disciples. Only then it will become clear that they already foresaw a great mystic in this young man. Inayat Khan accepts Sheikh Said Mohamed Madani as his murid, he came from a family of Seids - the descendants of the Prophet Muhammad; this man became Murshid, that is, the teacher of Inayat.

Subsequently, Inayat recalled that the path by which he came to the light could not be mastered by him only with the help of his own reasoning, independently found arguments and reading books, that only by connecting through initiation to a chain that began from time immemorial from one mystic to another, he received an impulse that gave him the only possible correct understanding of the world.

The Sufi movement that followed the ideas of Inayat Khan does not aim to make the whole world composed of Sufis. It exists in order to unite people who want to learn in Sufism how to contemplate God and how to serve Him, how to know yourself and the world in which a person fell to live, how and where to look for the truth.
