How nothing became something but lost itself
|Göran Hägglund’s own inner journey deepens and he tells us how it all began.|
—— ooOO – OOoo ——
I did not know that I would find something that did not exist. I came to an empty room where no one had been before. I was alone there.
Well – it’s a long story. A story that began ages ago.
In the beginning there was nothing.
But in this nothing something slumbered. This something was not conscious of itself. So it was for endless times, eon after eon. But then something happened.
That which slumbered became in a sense, conscious of itself. It began looking around.
It was lonely and I was alone, for a long, long time. Throughout the search something grew in strength and eventually spoke as a self.
The self came to think that maybe, maybe I can create something. But what should I create?
Well, I will create two arches that I sweep around myself.
But these arches were also alone. So I created two more so they had company.
They were there for an infinite time. Each arch was separate but still they belonged together. And that which was between them withdrew to wait to see what would happen.
These four and the one that existed between them together made five. They had a great love for each other.
Then came the thought: “Can we make each other come alive? We can do so that two of us go down to the world and change it so it suits us. The other two who are left will be watching over the first two in the world.”
All went well at first. But those who were living on the planet started to change. The contact with the originals dwindled more and more. It gradually became so little that the memory of what had been got lost. But something was still with them.
They began to understand that there was something that they had almost forgotten. So began the process of looking back to what they really were, but it was no easy task. The origin was so much forgotten and so far away.
They tried and tried, throughout their lives, time and time again.
But the temptations were so strong that they could not resist.
When that which had originally slumbered , saw this, it was deeply troubled. When one of these two that were on the planet could not get any further their world got destroyed along with all its life.
In different galaxies for a long time attempt after attempt was made. They all failed. They did not find their way back.
And so we came to this solar system …
