Let us imagine there was nothing at all....that was the begining of the universe. Light wasnt there so it was dark, matter didnt exist so it was vaccant. But everything that exists today had the potential of their existance in that dark. That potential had an AHAM or I-awareness. There was a feeling of existance spread throughout. If that potential was an energy, there were possibilities that it could transform to matter as well, as energy and matter are transformable.
Then was the first particle formed out of the AHAM that existed. Born as the first child out of eternity it called itself 'I' and felt it was the only living being in the vast ocean of space unaware that its 'I' was a part of the bigger AHAM. From it took birth another particle or may be some other emerged from the womb of AHAM. Now the other forms of energy as being a part of the potential reacted and arose. Love was then first felt in the heart and history of creation.
The particles pulled each other closer with the strong desire to merge. But each one had developed its I awareness from the supreme aham. And I awareness means the desire to retain individuality and continue to exist resisting all the force that make things one. So the love they had demanded them to merge but the aham they had wanted to remain individual. The struggle made one go round and round to resist the force of attraction. Lets say that was the first electron that spinned around the proton. If not sound is defined as all that humans can hear, if not sound is defined as all that needs to disturb the air...then the first sound that reached and pleased the mother aham was this spinning humming sound or the adi sound OM.
One electron thought I am I. One proton thought I am I. One neutron thought I am I. And together the group developed another 'I' called atom. Atom thought it was a separate individual born and electron, proton and neutron belonged to it as organs to make it servive, just like we call the cells of our body as ours though they have separate individuality and life of their own yet not hesitating to believe they servive just to make us servive.
There were many atoms then emerging, each having separate individuality and desire to retain it. One atom now loved the other. The history of love was being repeated at a different plane. They lost, they gained, they shared to come closer. Hydrogen loved oxygen to form water. Molecule that was formed thought it was a separate being and had an 'I' and considered the atoms as its organs existing just to make it thrive. Similarly compounds formed having another 'I', cells developed having their own 'I', we developed calling ourselves 'I'. The layers of 'I' at different levels and planes kept going on and on to make creation sustain in its amazing mysterious plan.
When I eat, my food is consumed by the cells. I eat not but feed them thinking they are mine, as my assumption of I-awareness depends on their desire to servive. The earth holds us firmly to its bossom, the moment she lives we will scatter in the space around. But she holds still thinking we belong to her and are her organs to servive. The solar system with some planets around calls itself 'I'. The spinning at this macrolevel combines with the spinning of microlevel adding to the sound of OM. The entire universe dances with this sound in the madness of creation and joy of be-ing.
We are all serviving at a particular plane of assumption. And such is our ignorance that we neglect the other planes of 'I' from the plane we exist it. This is what is called MAYA perhaps. Such fake is our assumption. And this entire universe is running on the basis of this fakeness which has arisen the desire to servive or retain each 'I' and made the entire creation interdepended and connected by this invisible network.
Like a vast ocean where tiny bubbles come up to the surface for a while, each bubble calling itself an individual but are the parts of the same ocean and emerging and bursting developing the fake individuality and losing it again.
However, many such systems like solar system together called the galaxy thought it was another individual and the individual systems are but its parts. Similarly many galaxies and cosmos formed millions and millions of 'I' at another plane. When all these bodies together along with the space called itself 'I' it found it was the same I as the mother AHAM prior to all.
Samadhi is the stage of meditation when one realises the fakeness of ones individuality and loses the aham or 'I' to merge with the greater 'I'. That is the time one realises everything is one-- we are God-the AHAM. That is the time the sages after beginning their meditation with the question'WHO AM I' opens his eyes to declare 'I AM HIM--SOHAM SOHAM'.
