The Goddess Who Dove Through the Sapphire & Emerald Door
In an infinite, invisible, timeless space, Creation Goddess journeyed silently, looking for the planet where the jewels she carried inside, could awaken and come alive.
Creation Goddess wanted one thing, and she wanted it so very much. She wanted the jewels she carried inside, to awaken and come alive. She had promised herself and the Radiant Beings who traveled with her, this would be so. And she knew, this would be so.
You see, the Goddess didn’t wander alone. Radiant Beings traveled with her. A Sky, a Sun, a Moon and Stars. They wanted the same thing as the Goddess. They had made the same promise, to themselves and to each other. And they followed Creation Goddess wherever she went.
One day, Creation Goddess came to a portal made of jewels. The sapphire and emerald door leading into the Magnificent Oceans of Earth. Her hands reached through the colorless winds of the infinite, invisible, timeless space, till they were bathed in radiant, sapphire and emerald light, and the Goddess knew,
This is the planet where the jewels we carry inside, will awaken and come alive.
Creation Goddess dove through the sapphire and emerald door, and the Radiant Beings followed her. They spiraled down in a swirling descent till they reached the Magnificent Oceans of Earth. They breathed the magnificent waters in. They surrendered to the sapphire and emerald flow. All at once they became visible, and found they had bodies. Visible jewels. They celebrated their jewels, swimming through the waters in bliss.
Creation Goddess saw sapphire and emerald mountains shining below. She dove through the waters with the Radiant Beings. They swam among the sparkling sapphire and emerald mountains. They swam deeper and deeper and came to the bottom of the Sea. The bottom of the Sea was lit up with luminous, many-colored crystals and glowing shells. The Goddess sat upon a crystal. Sky, Sun, Moon and Stars sat around her, in a circle.
Then, they heard a sound. It came from the center of the circle, beneath the floor of the Sea. It was the sound of a heart beating. It beat in rhythm with their hearts. Suddenly, a smiling, round, Radiant Being appeared before them. Her emerald hair swished upon the floor of the Sea, and she laughed in joy. She was Earth.
Earth opened her arms and began to dance. She danced around the circle, smiling at the Goddess, Sky, Sun, Moon and Stars. She anointed them with jewels from the vast emerald fire of her heart. She welcomed them with her love. Then, Earth sat down in the circle. As she sat, the waters around them swirled.
There before them appeared, another smiling, Radiant Being. She had sapphire skin and was quite tall. Her hair flowed in rivers of pearl and coral. She was Sea.
Sea opened her arms and looked tenderly at the Goddess and the other Radiant Beings. Soft, sapphire and emerald waves caressed them as she spoke,
You are cherished children of the Oceans of Earth. Your jewels are treasured here.
She enveloped them with her love. Then, she sat down in the circle. All the Radiant Beings closed their eyes.
Creation Goddess closed her eyes. She embraced the jewel of her being. The jewel of her pure, breathing being. I love you, the Goddess said, to the jewel of breath. And she felt her breath awaken and come alive. Her breath rose and fell like the waves of the Sea. The Goddess fell in love with the jewel of her pure, breathing being. She sat upon the crystal, breathing deeply. Falling deeper and deeper in love with the jewel of breath.
As Creation Goddess fell deeper and deeper in love with the jewel of breath, she began to see the colors inside herself. I love you, the Goddess said, to the jewel of seeing. And she saw the colors awaken and come alive. They were the colors of Sky, the colors of Sun, the colors of Moon, the colors of Stars, the colors of Earth, the colors of Sea, the colors of the jewels of her being.
The Goddess fell in love with the jewel of her pure, seeing being. She sat upon the crystal, seeing the colors inside. Falling deeper and deeper in love with the jewel of seeing.
As Creation Goddess fell deeper and deeper in love with the jewel of seeing, she felt her heart opening, opening, opening… I love you, the Goddess said, to the jewel of feeling. And she felt her heart awaken and come alive. Her feelings rose and fell like the waves of the Sea. And they were vast and fiery, like Earth’s heart. The Goddess fell in love with the jewel of her pure, feeling being. She sat upon the crystal, her heart feeling deeply.
As her feelings deepened, she was filled with a knowing. A knowing powerful as a wave, passionate as a flame. Her heart began to beat faster and faster, louder and louder. And the Goddess knew,
It is time to rise!
Creation Goddess and the Radiant Beings opened their eyes. They gazed lovingly at each other, and smiled. They felt their love awaken and come alive. They felt the promises they had made to themselves and to each other, in the infinite, invisible, timeless space, ignite. I love you, they intoned, to each other. And the luminous, many-colored crystals, glowing shells, and sapphire and emerald mountains, hummed.
The Goddess rose from the crystal, her body moving like the waves of the Sea. She stepped into the center of the circle. Creation Goddess and the Radiant Beings intoned,
It is time to rise!
The Goddess touched Sky. Sky rose and stepped into the circle with Goddess. And Goddess kissed Sky. Sky was breathed into Goddess. And the Goddess rose through the waters, carrying Sky.
On the surface of the Sea, all was dark, and still, and silent. Creation Goddess opened the jewel of her body, and breathed out Sky. And Sky was born from the Goddess in waves of glorious lapis lazuli light. And the darkness and the stillness were no more. All quivered and shimmered with the Goddess and Sky.
Creation Goddess began to dance. Sea began to dance. The sapphire and emerald waters rose and fell, caressing the Goddess’ feet. The Goddess moved like the waves of the Sea. Creation Goddess raised her arms to Sky, and Sky and Goddess and Sea breathed as One, and Goddess was lifted above the waters, and Sky and Goddess danced. I love you, they said, to the jewel of dance. And the jewel of dance awoke and came alive.
It was the first dance of this sapphire and emerald world. The first dance of Creation Goddess and Sky. The Goddess and Sky embraced the jewels of their pure, dancing beings. They danced and they danced upon the sapphire and emerald waves, enkindling all to quiver and shimmer, and dance. Falling deeper and deeper in love with the jewels of their pure, dancing beings. The Goddess and Sky fell deeper and deeper in love with the jewel of dance.
After a while, it was time for Sky to dance far across the Magnificent Oceans of Earth. The Goddess watched Sky rise from her, as she danced upon the waves.
