Although most religions do not actually acknowledge any type of mystical inner sound in their traditional doctrines, most do refer to it within their more secret, esoteric writings meant for the practitioners within their ‘inner circles’. In addition, almost all religions throughout history have been at odds from within their own religion concerning some of these very issues, resulting in some leaving their native religion and starting offshoots or cults based on these more esoteric, non-traditional doctrines. Some of these same people were persecuted by their former religion and went underground, and some actually disappeared altogether. Who knows how much of that information could be lost for good, or has been hidden away secretly for centuries.
