And in the beginning was the Goddess. And She lay dreaming in the dark that
had neither form nor place. And there was nothing except the Goddess.
in Her silent sleep there came a dream, and within the dream a thought. And with
the dream, and with the thought, a smile appeared upon Her lips. Her eyes opened
upon the darkness of the primeval womb and She breathed a sigh for the beauty of
And the Lady's breath opened the darkness, and the light of Her
beauty shown forth where only night had been. And Her breath stirred the winds of
space and the suns burst into life, the planets took up their stations, and the wandering
comets were born.
And the Lady looked upon the jeweled heavens of Her creation,
and She danced upon the cosmic winds with the joy of Her dream. And as She danced,
another came. Another crowned with horn and blazing like the suns. And They danced
and They loved there amongst the stars.
And as They danced, They came upon
a certain world, as beautiful as an opal suspended in the velvet blackness. And They
breathed upon this priceless gem and Their breath stirred the waters, and the waters
brought forth life. And They breathed and the air was filled with birds, the seas
with fish, and the land brought forth beasts of every kind.
And the Lord and
Lady brought forth mankind in their image, and They breathed the Breath of Life into
them. And with the Breath came both Wisdom to know the Gods without and Spirit to
know the Gods within.
For the breath of the Goddess that is the Air, is the
breath of life itself, and the love of the Goddess made manifest.
