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. The Goddess didn’t journey alone. Radiant Beings traveled with her - a Sky, a Sun, a Moon, and Stars. Creation Goddess and the Radiant Beings wanted one thing, and they wanted it so very much. They wanted the jewels they carried inside to awaken and come alive. They had promised themselves, and each other this would be so. And they knew, this would be so.
One day, Creation Goddess came to a portal of swirling colors, 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 blues and greens, 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 and swirled in a flowing descent till they reached the Magnificent Oceans of Earth. They breathed the waters in, and the waters breathed with them. All at once Creation Goddess and the Radiant Beings became visible, and found they had bodies, visible jewels. They celebrated the jewels of their bodies, swimming through the waters in bliss. They surrendered to the sapphire and emerald flow.
Creation Goddess and the Radiant Beings were deep inside a sapphire Sea, and saw emerald Mountains sparkling deep below. They swam till they came to the Mountains and wandered among them. The Mountains emitted a fiery, emerald light and like the Sea, they were breathing. They swam to the bottom of the Sea, where large, luminous crystals, pearls, coral, conches and kauri glowed. Creation Goddess sat upon a crystal, and Sky, Sun, Moon and Stars sat around her, in a circle.
Then, they heard a sound. It was the sound of Earth’s heart beating softly beneath the floor of the Sea. A Radiant Being rose from the floor of the Sea into the center of the circle. She was very round. She smiled at them warmly and began to laugh. Her laughter was the most beautiful sound. She had dark, loving eyes that sparkled with an abundance spilling from deep inside. She had glowing, emerald skin, and her long, coppery hair flickered with jewels. I am Earth! She told them.
As Creation Goddess and the Radiant Beings beheld Earth in wonder, they felt waves of joy rush through them. Earth spread her arms and began to dance. Triamatu! Earth sang. Triamatu was the dance of all beings arising from the infinite to embody the jewels of creation, in this sapphire and emerald world. They watched as Earth danced a dance of rising, a soft, spiraling, spinning, fierce magic. The jewels in her long, coppery hair made a powerful, harmonious music as she swirled. Her body shook with light. Then, Earth became still. She smiled at them and said, Welcome to the Magnificent Oceans of Earth, Sisters and Brothers! And Earth sat down in the circle.
A deep sapphire radiance poured into the circle. Out of the radiance appeared another Radiant Being. She was very tall. She looked at them tenderly, as if she knew them well. She had bright, loving eyes radiating wisdom streaming from deep inside. She had glistening, sapphire skin, and her shining, silvery hair braided with coral and pearls, floated around her. I am Sea! She told them.
Sea took one of the pearls from her hair and gave it to Creation Goddess. Creation Goddess tucked the pearl behind her ear and it naturally nestled there. Then, Sea began to dance. A tender, mysterious, ecstatic dance. The Triamatu of Sea. Her body moved in waves, in sacred undulations empowered by the jewels of creation. She danced a dance of birth, celebrating the arrival of Creation Goddess and the Radiant Beings into this sapphire and emerald world! Her dance rocked them in the radiance of the unseen beings whispering to come forth in beauty. Sea sang, You are cherished children of the Magnificent Oceans of Earth, your jewels are treasured here!
Then, Sea sat down in the circle, and Creation Goddess and the Radiant Beings closed their eyes, to embrace the jewels.
Creation Goddess breathed deeply. She embraced the first jewel that arose inside her, the jewel of her breath, and she felt herself expand. I love you, the Goddess said to the jewel of breath, and her breath awoke and came alive! Her breath rose and fell like the waves of the Sea. She sat upon the crystal, breathing deeply, falling deeper and deeper in love with the jewel of her breath.
As Creation Goddess fell deeper and deeper in love with the jewel of her breath, she embraced another jewel, the jewel of her seeing, and she saw the colors inside. I love you, the Goddess said to the jewel of her seeing, and the colors awoke and came alive! She saw the colors 0f Sky, the colors of Sun, the colors of Moon, the colors of Stars, the colors of Earth, the colors of Sea, the colors of God, and the colors of Goddess. She sat upon the crystal, seeing the colors, falling deeper and deeper in love with the jewel of her seeing.
As Creation Goddess fell deeper and deeper in love with the jewel of her seeing, she felt her feelings opening, and she embraced another jewel, the jewel of feeling. Her feelings opened like a radiant palace leading her into a beautiful place she’d never known before. A beautiful place of knowings she’d never felt before. I love you, the Goddess said, to the jewel of feeling, and her feelings awoke and came alive!
Her feelings were fiery and abundant like Earth’s heart, they were wise and undulant like the breathing of Sea. Creation Goddess felt succulent, fertile, lush and fiery inside. She felt abundant. She felt wise. She sat upon the crystal, letting her feelings lead her, and suddenly she knew. She knew what she wanted to do. She wanted to rise from the bottom of the Sea...
Creation Goddess opened her eyes. All the Radiant Beings opened their eyes. They gazed lovingly at each other, and smiled. For they knew, it was time to rise! Creation Goddess rose from the crystal, and stepped into the center of the circle. She touched Sky, and Sky floated into the circle. And Goddess kissed Sky, and 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. Sky floated inside Creation Goddess. It was succulent, and fertile, and lush inside the Goddess, and it was warm, and there was light. Sky breathed with Goddess as she stood on the waters in the darkness, and the stillness, and the silence. But Goddess was not still. She bowed to the east, to the west, to the north, to the south, and then she breathed out Sky. Goddess breathed out Sky, and Sky was born from the Goddess in waves upon waves of dancing, lapis lazuli light. The Goddess raised her arms to Sky and together they embraced the jewel of dance rising. And the stillness and the darkness were no more. All quivered and shimmered with the Goddess and Sky. I love you, they whispered to the jewel of dance rising inside themselves, inside each other, inside all beings seen and unseen, and the jewel of dance awoke and came alive and the Goddess and Sky began to dance!
The Radiant Beings Earth and Sea danced in their realm at the bottom of the Oceans of Earth, but this was the first dance upon the sapphire and emerald waves. Creation Goddess and Sky danced softly, tenderly, fiercely, with the fierce, tender magic that pulsed from the jewel of dance. Everything was lifted higher and higher, everything expanded, as they embraced this jewel. They moved in the colors of Sky and the colors of Goddess, rising and falling, rising and falling, dancing on the sapphire and emerald waves, and in the Sky. They danced in spiraling, spinning motions, caressing the heavens, the 4 directions, the bottom of the Sea, the emerald Mountains. They whispered to each other and the first winds were seeded. They whispered into this sapphire and emerald world and the first winds were born, This is the planet where the jewels awaken and come alive, this is the planet where the jewels thrive...
Creation Goddess and the Sky fell deeper and deeper in love with the jewel of dance, and Sky rose higher and higher above the Sea. Sky danced farther and farther across the Magnificent Oceans of Earth, and Creation Goddess watched Sky rise from her, and she danced upon the waves.
