creation myth…

He sees monsters everywhere

Dear friends,

“…a time before the beginning of time, when this universe was nothing but “the Self”. That Self looked around and saw that there was nothing but itself, whereupon its first shout was. “It is I!” And when that Self had thus become aware of itself as an I, an ego, it was afraid.  But it reasoned, thinking, “Since there is no one here but myself, what is there to fear?”  Whereupon the fear departed.”

I absolutely adore creation myths, especially this Indian creation myth as quoted in the book written by Joseph Campbell titled: “Myths to live by”
