Well as I stated origanally is that in my reoccuring dream,I am one with space and time, "matter and energy","LIFE".I get a certain feeling which is almost indescribable.The closest I can come to describing it is when I feel the energy eminating off of what ever is around me.Anything and everything can be very easy to explain in terms of transmissin of energy, But there is no differance between say the energy comming from music, or the energy comming from a person, or the sun, or a tree.So I guess the answer to your question would be yes it is.A weird coincedent happened not to long ago and I decided to look up what this person had tattoo'd on the back of there neck.
Here is what I found right off the bat.
Symbolism behind the Sound of OM:
As regards the sound and form, AUM is symbolic of Brahma and the whole universe.
A symbolizes Creation
U symbolizes Preservation
M symbolizes Destruction
The three sounds also symbolize the three Vedas (Rig-Veda, Sam Veda, and Yajur Veda).
This is in other words represents the Trinity in Hindu Dharma namely Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.
Other Symbolism behind OM:
The three letters in AUM also indicate three planes of existence, called heaven, earth and netherworld.
AUM can represent all the words produced by the human vocal organ. This can be said because; A is produced by the throat and U & M by the lips.
According to the Vedas, AUM is associated with the sound of the Sun and also the sound of Light.
It symbolizes the sound of the infinite.
But overall the nature of OM is threefold. It is a sacred sound. It forms the essence of all mantras. It is the ultimate reality (Brahma). It is also said to be the central essence of the Vedas.
While meditating, if we chant OM, we create within ourselves a vibration that connects us with the cosmic vibration and we start thinking universally. The silence between each chant becomes felt physically. The Mind moves from the opposites of sound and silence until the sound ceases. In this silence, there is no thought. This is the state of trance.
Funny how this just popped up earlier today while I have kinda been on this topic.
