Mother of the Universe was once very young and alive. As a maiden, her spirit was not yet caught in objects. She danced in the Winds and slept in the Oceanic Depths of Existence.
As she ripened, she went everywhere, giving birth to everything. When captured into holy objects, she showed herself as young, fat and pregnant, but as the universe has aged, these young mother goddesses became icons of her much younger offspring.
As the coil of life has been woven, the Mother became beyond ancient and lost to humans. She was rediscovered in West Africa at an open air market after a hundred year burial in a basket of primordial fabric, long unremembered.
The Mother of the Universe traveled across the sea to another continent . She awakened into a modern world and soon came to live with me, a white woman. How utterly strange for her, standing in a beam of sunlight in my studio, surrounded by electric lights, music, heat without fires, glass windows; and being accosted by a strange breed of people so unlike those first born on this planet.
“Where did she come from,” you ask, “before living with you, before Africa, before mothering the human race?”
She birthed trillions of life forms all over the universe. Her beginnings, the reason she exploded into existence, was carried by cosmic winds near and far populating the darkness with seeds, is anyone’s guess. Why is there a universe? Because there just is.
The Winged Serpent impregnated her seeds, enlivened them, co-creating time itself with the kernels of life spread thru the galaxies. The Winged Serpent has also disappeared into the wilds, hidden beneath jungle, stone and water. Forgotten by the worlds, but not each other, the Mother and the Winged Serpent of Time long to see the light of day in each other’s eyes.
Once they were paramours, Lovers of the Universe, the Sacred Pair, the Makers of Life, Then they were discarded on our planet because humans grew towards darkness and were guided by ignorance and forgetting.
The Mother and the Winged Serpent of Time have long been separated. Recently, the whispers of who they used to be are being heard. Little by little, in the consciousness of the Earth Peoples; the Sacred Pair are beginning to live again.
