If You Want to Hear AUM (I want to hear AUM)

"If you want to hear AUM, just cover your ears and you'll hear it.  Of course, what you are hearing is the blood in the capillaries, but it's AUM: Ah - waking consciousness; ou- dream consciousness; and then, mmm - the realm of deep, dreamless sleep.  AUM is the sound of the radiance of God. This is the most mysterious and important thing to understand, but once you get the idea, it's very simple." 

~ Joseph Campbell in Reflections on the Art of Living: A Joseph Campbell Companion

"The soul is to be propelled both by and from this syllable AUM into the silence beyond and all around it: the silence out of which it rises and back into which it goes when pronounced - slowly and AUM-AUM-AUM."  

~ Joseph Campbell
