In the beginning there was only vibration. From One vibration all creation came to be. We are all made up of vibration. Ask a quantum physicist, and she will confirm this for you.

The ONE is in everyONE. It is the luminous secret within all things. All forms arise from the ONE and dissolve back into the ONE.

Everything is a matter of low and high frequencies. As human beings, we have the ability to change our vibrational frequency using our mind. How do we do this? We tune our mind to speak positive things, and have positive thoughts. These practices elevate our vibrational frequency. What are these practices? In Japji Sahib, Guru Ji gives us one command. It is the only command in the entire Guru Granth Sahib: JAAP! It is through recitation, chanting and singing of Gurbani that we connect to the ONE in everyONE.

Ok, this I learned fairly recently:

God is true and will always be, as he always has (aad sach jugaad sach hai bhee sach nags hosee bhee sach). Something that is true will always be true, which makes it eternal and perfect. The naam will always be true because they let us obtain a small small amount of info into what the reality of god is. Since it is true, and god is trye, naam = god, like how god = our souls. Thus, the naam is quite literally a form of god. Why shouldn't u chant naam?

God doesn't care if we chant naam or not, since god has no desires. Naam is the way god easily manifests to us though. It may be very much beyond our comprehension beyond this, as it is so simple, but is often times hard to grasp.

Chant naam a lot even if it may be hard at first to continually do because it is certainly rewarding.
