Tao is the Way, Alpha and the Omega
Sound and Vibration of the Tao is OM
In the beginning was the word, and the word is G-d.
G-d is Universal Energy
OM is said to be the highest mantra or divine word and it is the most revered symbol in Hinduism. Although it is regarded as sacred and widely practiced in India, it is not part of a particular religion, culture or philosophy. The syllable of OM was not invented by man or a specific religion. It is a symbol of a deep reality that has always existed. OM is omnipresent, omnipotent, and in and of itself it is incomprehensible, so a symbol is necessary to help realize the unknowable.
A mantra is a combination of syllables. The root word "man" in the word mantra in Sanskrit means "to think" and the root word "tra" comes from "trai" which means "to protect or free from the bondage of suffering or samsara". The word mantra literally means "the thought that liberates and protects".
Everything in the universe that is both manifest and unmanifest is made of Chi, Prana, "Energy" which comes from the source and will eventually return to it. The Source, where everything originates from, vibrates with the sound OM. This omnipotent sound and vibration permeates the entire universe and is audible in higher states of consciousness. The vibration of OM is the highest frequency vibration there is. It is the vibration of peace, love and harmony. This subtle energy force emerges from stillness and silence, and it is always present. Basic Physics says Energy cannot be created or destroyed, only transformed.
OM represents the infinite ultimate reality, the source. It relates to the states of waking consciousness, dream consciousness and dreamless sleep consciousness. It is considered to be the first vibrational sound emanated at the beginning of creation and all sounds in the universe can be reduced to the origin of this syllable.
There are many levels of meaning in a mantra which must be experienced to be truly understood. An intellectual explanation and understanding is only a small part of its meaning.
In a state of profound meditation, when the mind and senses are withdrawn from the physical world, all boundaries are transcended and the individual self connects to the Spiritual Energy of the Infinite Ultimate Reality. It is the realization of being Soul.

South Korean Flag
The South Korean Flag called Tegukke is one of the most
philosophical flag in the world. It represents the Philosophy of Yin Yang, and the Book of Changes. The circle in the middle represents the absolute, or the essential unity of all beings. The division of yin and yang within the circle represents duality, the opposite forces of the universe. The four trigrams on each corner of the flag also represent the duality of opposites, as well as the principle of movement and harmony.
Yin and Yang are opposite. Yang is the positive forces of the universe: male, masculine, day, sun, summer, fire, bright, hot, full, loud, etc. Yin is the negative forces of the universe: female, feminine, night, moon, winter, water, dark, cold, empty, quiet, etc. The unobstructed energy flow of yin and yang is called Tegukke, same as the name of the flag.
The Kwae Trigrams are from the I Ching or the Book of Changes. Each kwae trigram symbolizes one of the four universal elements (there is also the four seasons, four compass points, four elements and the sun, moon, heaven and earth). The upper left trigram represents Heaven, the opposite of this on the lower right is Earth. The lower left trigram represents Fire, and the opposite of this on the upper right is Water. The trigrams represent situations and occasions of the human condition, a kind of a code for interpreting all events in the world. Among many states of conditions, only four basic trigrams are used in the flag, each trigram representing a different state of movement.
All of the symbols, Fire, Water, Yin, Yang, Earth and Heaven, express the principle of energy flow in the universe and the energy flow of the universe itself. They indicate the process of yin and yang going through change and growth, depicting the concepts of creation and development through duality and balance which characterizes the circle of infinity.
