All problems of existence are essentially problems of harmony.
Sri Aurobindo (1872-1950)
Indian philosopher and spiritual reformer
“I think he is taking off from the ancient tantric insight into the view that all existence is a form of vibration, Spanda (which means divine vibration in Sanskrit). The master vibration is, of course, love. Vibrations such as anger, resentment, fear, paranoia, shame, anxiety, create dissonance in the world. What is required, in my view, is psycho-spiritual work in order to transmute these lower vibrations or dissonant vibrations and raise them to a genuinely loving, more harmonious vibration. Spiritual practice alone won’t [solve the problem] because that leads to spiritual bypassing. And, psychological practice alone won’t work because that leads to the opposite which is psychological fixation. We need psycho-spiritual work. And that is why I find this quote inspiring.”
