“What Is God?” – Man is not only formed of vibrations, but he lives and moves in them: they surround him as the fish is surrounded by water.”

The life absolute from which has sprung all that is felt, seen, and perceived, and into which all again merges in times, is a silent, motionless, and eternal life which among Sufis is called Dhat (zat). Every motion that springs forth from this silent life is a vibration and a creator of vibrations. Within one vibration are created many vibrations. As motion causes motion so the silent life becomes active in a certain part, and creates every moment more and more activity, losing thereby the peace of the original silent life. It is the grade of activity of these vibrations that accounts for the various planes of existence. These planes are imagined to differ from one another, but in reality they cannot be entirely detached and made separate from one another. The activity of vibrations makes them grosser, and thus the earth is born of the heavens. The mineral, vegetable, animal, and human kingdoms are gradual changes of vibrations, and the vibrations of each plane differ from one another in their weight, breadth, length, colour, effect, sound and rhythm. Man is not only formed of vibrations, but he lives and moves in them; they surround him as the fish is surrounded by water, and he contains them within him as the tank contains the water. His different moods, inclinations, affairs, successes, and failures, and conditions of life, depend upon a certain activity of vibrations, whether these be thoughts, emotions of feelings. Vibration accounts for the basis sensation and source of all pleasure and pain; its cessation is the opposite of sensation. All sensations are caused by a certain grade of activity of vibration. ~Hazrat Inayat Khan
