Let’s go way back to my first memory...
And so it starts… I want to tell you this story of a Serpent I met… Her name is Nalini.
But before we get there, let's go back to the beginning…
Let’s go way back to my first memory, to the place where it all started, the place that I call home. Let’s go back to the origin of this dream.
In that place, only Oneness existed. In this Oneness there was no separation; we were all One. There was no space; there was no time; none of that existed. Being all One, it was difficult to experience what we all were, as we were everything in a single eternal moment. In that moment, the Oneness started to contemplate itself. It was as if a conversation began inside the Oneness:
“Wouldn’t it be nice to be separated, just for a moment?”
“Why would we do that? Why would we separate? We are One: there is no need for separation.”
“That is true… But imagine if we could separate for an instant, just for an instant, so we could experience every single aspect of what we truly are. Wouldn’t that be nice?”
“But why? Why would we ever do that? Wouldn’t I miss you? Wouldn’t you miss me? Wouldn’t we miss each other?”
“Yes, we will… But in the end, we will still be One. That can never change. We will just forget it for an instant—and enter the illusion of separation. We will go into a dream. In that dream, we can experience every aspect of what we are now, separately. And after that, we will come home again, back into this Oneness. After the experience of separation, the Oneness will be different. We will appreciate all this much more. We will feel even more love. Without separation, we will never know the difference. Without that brief separation, we will never truly feel what we are, right now. Don't we want to fully experience what we are?”
“Yes, maybe… But what will that look like? What will happen in that dream?”
“We can choose anything in that dream. Anything that we want to happen can happen in that dream. We can create time and space. ‘Time’ so it will take a while before things happen, and ‘space’ to have the illusion of distance. In that dream, we can create energy to use for manifestation.”
“What will we manifest?”
“Everything will be possible. There will be no limitations. We can create a planet to live on, physical bodies to work with. On that planet, we can each have a separate body. We can create metals to use in trading, as an exchange of energy. We can use energy to create music and dance. We can paint. On that planet we can create plants: plants that produce the oxygen that our bodies will breathe; plants that nurture us, feed us; plants that will heal us, teach us.”
“Why would we need healing? Why would we need teaching? We have everything. We are completely at ease. We are One. There is no need for healing, no need for teaching.”
“That is true. But in the separation, we will forget all this so that we can re-member it all again, so we can remember what we truly are: One. Sometimes we will feel not at ease; our bodies will have a dis-ease. It will be very uncomfortable at times. But in the end, there is nothing to worry about, as we will all come full circle again. In the end, nothing can happen to us. We can never truly get lost over there.”
“I see… But if I have such a disease, will you come to me? Will you be there for me? Will you hold my hand? Will you bring me the plants that will help me to heal? Will you sing the songs for me?”
“Yes, I will. I promise… I will be there for you, in any way I can.”
“Okay, then let’s start…”
The song of One started there: the Uni-verse. And as the One started to sing, it expanded and, in that expansion, created a mirror image of itself. Santa Musica began to sing, and she became the queen of all that is.
There began the dream we call life
