The Teachings are to the effect that Spirit is at one end of the Pole of Vibration, the other Pole being certain extremely gross forms of Matter.
What is spirit?
...and these vibrations are vibrations of what?
As you know, it would take more than a post to explain these ideas so a person can see the logic in them. But for now, are you open to the idea that the universe is mental rather than physical? If it is, its source is consciousness or the totality of the essence of existence. It is the living essence of consciousness.
Every phenomenon is the result of the union of three forces. They are known as the Trinity, the three Gunas, or other names. I appreciate them as affirming, denying, and reconciling
You may have heard the expression God is love which is taken superficially. Love is the highest form of energy in the universe followed by the creative energies. The three forces of the Trinity are united in love. Affirmation and denial revolve round each other and are reconciled by the energy of love. Vibration in matter is life. The quality of life or the quality of being - its "isness" is determined by its relationship to the ALL, the ONE, Plato's GOOD, or whatever name is used for the ineffable living conscious source of creation.
Affirmation strives for unity, Denial strives for diversity, reconciliation allows them to function together as the living whole: "I AM."
