In The Beginning Was The Goddess
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. -James 1:1 (KJV).
The power of word, or rather, the power of sound has been known to be a powerful force to the ancients. Particularly in the Eastern traditions, practices such as mantra, the repetition of certain sounds, are known for their abilities to alter and expand consciousness. Further, sound is often related to creation, with wavelike vibrating molecules creating an orchestra that gives the appearance of particles, which further gives the appearance of creation.
In Vedic philosophy, sound through speech is personified as a Goddess, Vak. Through syncretization with Tantrik philosophy, particularly of the Samkhya Tradition, a scientific school of consciousness exploration, the Goddess is often identified with Prakriti, or the laws of nature. Prakriti, is nature herself, not only of objects but the movement of objects, while the masculine Purusha is simply the conscious observer of Prakriti. Therefore, the beginning of creation, where the vibration of molecules create our universe is the result of sound, something that the ancients understood as the feminine.

Overly educated and continuously exploring and revealing more behind the veil.
