(AN ORAL TEACHING OF THE FAERY TRADITION OF WITCHCRAFT)
Alone, awesome, complete within Herself, the Goddess, She
whose name cannot be spoken, floated in the abyss of the outer
darkness, before the beginning of all things. And as She looked
into the curved mirror of black space, She saw by her own light
her radiant reflection, and fell in love with it. She drew it
forth by the power that was in Her and made love to Herself, and
called Her "Miria, the Wonderful".
Their ecstasy burst forth in the single song of all that is,
was, or ever shall be, and with the song came motion, waves that
poured outward and became all the spheres and circles of the
worlds. The Goddess became filled with love, swollen with love,
and She gave birth to a rain of bright spirits that filled the
worlds and became all beings.
But in that great movement, Miria was swept away, and as She
moved out from the Goddess She became more masculine. First She
became the Blue God, the gentle , laughing God of love. Then She
became the Green One, vine-covered, rooted in the earth, the
spirit of all growing things. At last She became the Horned God,
the Hunter whose face is the ruddy sun and yet dark as Death. But
always desire draws Him back toward the Goddess, so that He
circles Her eternally, seeking to return in love.
All began in love; all seeks to return to love. Love is the
law, the teacher of wisdom, and the great revealer of mysteries.
