      Every thought has a form, and every sound creates
      a ripple that is called a thought. Each thought
      has a form, thus the sound and form are one and
      the same. Similarly, any action you perform in
      the external world is virtually a thought created
      by your sound in the ocean of bliss. We ourselves
      are nothing but forms created by the universal
      sound. Thus, in the process of the creation of
      sound, a visual form follows, because every sound
      has a form.

      But with light there is no sound. Light does not
      lead you to the silence; sound leads you to the
      silence. That is why the great sages preferred
      sounds and not light as the first choice for
      concentration, even though light travels faster
      than sound. Artificial lights and images create
      barriers for you; they do not allow you to see
      the real light.
