"In the beginning, it is always dark"
Almost every creation myth begins by telling us that before the Universe was created, there was only a Sea of Dark Infinite Space and Directionless Chaos. It was out of this primordial abyss that the Universe was created. The Father of Life (Chaos) impregnated the Great Mother (Dark Infinite Space) and she gave birth to the entire Universe! (There was a Big Bang and then there was Light!) The Primordial Creative Energies of the Universe are often depicted as a pair of serpents, one male and one female. The sparks of creation were started by the friction between the two opposites.
Mother/Father...Yin/Yang...Yab/Yum...Shiva/Shakti...the Divine Lovers...Sparks fly igniting the Flames of Creation. This is the ecstatic passion which unites them eternally...the Fire of Love! Love is the quintessence of the Universe, the secret Power of Creation.
"Invoke me under my stars! Love is the Law, Love under Will. Nor let the fools mistake Love; for there are Love and love. There is the Dove, and there is the Serpent. Choose ye well! He, my prophet, hath chosen, knowing the law of the fortress, and the great mystery of the House of God." Liber al vel Legis 1:57
