There was No Beginning, There Was Only IS
Rambling unto Infinity
There was no beginning. There always was... is... An eternal dance between dark and darkness.
Until a sparkle came by. Back then, in the no beginning, there were only three things and three things only: Father Time, Light and Dark. Just like it ever is.
Until a speck came by, forced by the magnitude of the games Light and Dark used to play. Tiny specks of rubble became great and massive planets.
Rhea, or Flow, Mother's name, mother of it all ever since there is no beginning, loved to see her children play and be happy in their Universe playground. Of course in their games, in their passion for winning, there were times when games turn pretty serious, and some games end in war.
One day/night the whole playground exploded. The planets played a bit too rough. KABOOM!
For everything that was created everything that it wasn't. Everything we touch and see came from what it was never visible.
Everything then is a Huge Idea. We, you, I are a stupendous Idea! After Father Chronos saw the light, Helios, and the dark, Hades were not at peace any longer, he declared an eternal truce and confined Light at one end of the playground and Dark at the other. Where they are forever to dance in an eternal merry-go-round around their specks.
Nothing stays put, even the Sun moves across the Universe
Or is it the specks around them? All the same to the specks as they live happily floating around the playground. So far, Rhea contemplates Helios and Hades. But what about those specks floating by the Universe, ahem, playground, don't they get names too? Don't they get to become an IS?
As Helios passed by him, or one day, Father Chronos decided to name his specks, the planets.
The first that came at hand was red-haired Mercury. Agile and quarrelsome, Mercury is quite belligerent. He took of the most non-playful dust of Light and Dark, from back in the days that were not.
Mercury, the messenger of the Gods. The Gods? Where did all them came from? We all are but big ideas. Gods are too.
Story goes that Mercury was too good at conveying messages and communicating ideas. He was actually good at having someone actually understand what was in the mind of another. Pretty good trick this one of communication. Some magic.
Sometimes, Mercury abused this power. Power have always was, is abused. He manipulated and deceived people. Like all gods, there was some light in him but there was some dark too.
That is why we will always have gods that kill for many reasons, including love, anger and mercy.
Was There Light and Dark in Father Time?
But wait, there was no beginning... What was there before Chronos? The beginning and the end and the middle are all one and the same from a light year distance. For now, before Chronos was, Gaia and Uranus or so this story goes. But aren't they specks?
Light year distance Atoms and Universes, all but the same and still we have barely discovered the true magnificence of neither.
Come Gaia's turn, Mother Earth.
Why is Earth called Earth
The original name was Eros or Gaia. Evolution can indeed be funny. Eros means spirit, or better yet the energy that conforms the spirit. What spirit is made of. Which is the same thing, or the substance that sustains every single living and non living thing in the Universe playground.
Everything is nothing but energy.
Since energy only transforms, nothing is really dead. Like the beginning that never was, energy always will. Always will. And that will is what keeps us playing in this playground.
Nothing is dead. Scientists found it easier to classify things as "living" or "dead" if they fit certain characteristics. Truth be told, nothing is truly dead, as everything coexists and keeps the constant evolving cycle of changing and recycling and transforming its energy onto one another.
Bouncing off the Universe
Some say animals can't communicate, only humans are capable of talking. True, but then again, talking is such a small fragment of communication... and communication theories establish that everything communicates, including dogs and rocks.
All living things are part of every other living thing, the brick mortar, the steel in the building, all of a human being. The words that I say, and those that I write, are also alive and transmit energy.
The Universe, You and I are One
Why is this so important to know? For starters, it makes for a colossal you. It eliminates the need for wanting or possessing. You are already one with the Universe and one with the particles that amount for you being present. You will know that in fact you are the owner of each said moment (along with all your surrounding). When it comes to social interactions no social introductions or warm-ups will be required. Since you always was, are, is with one another, it makes for a happy to see you again.
And that which you are, the Earth always is. Can't understand why some vouch for eliminating the human race for the betterment of planet Earth when humans, birds, flowers all are part of Earth creatures.
