Mother of All Living

She was not born

She was not created

She was taken

From the man

While he slept

And brought to him

In another form

She is the wife

Of God’s creation

The mother of all living



We have always had the truth

Written in our hearts

Waiting to be discovered

We have pulled what is inside out

And put in into our creation


We remember the truth

Through recreating it

Now it surrounds us

All that we have created

Stands for the truth


Mother of All Living

Art: Formation of Eve by Ed Suominen


And all that God made was good

Except it was not good that man be alone

So God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man


And took from him a rib

And fashioned from that rib a woman


How long did that take

To prepare a wife for his creation

How long was his creation asleep


He slept until the woman

Was brought to him

To be his wife

Then everything was good


It is like Christ and his bride

That which has been prepared for him

A house in which all his children live

The mother of all living



Art: Princess in a Tree, artist unknown



But not a prisoner



By his charms

And his wisdom

And his love


By that he held me captive

But I am no longer captive


He has freed me

From the illusion

He created

Just for me


He hid me

Within his creation


What was once hidden

Is no longer hidden


It is made manifest

By the illusion he created




On reflection of my life

I start here

Where I am now


According to the Bible,

If the creation story holds true

Which it will,

We can all trace our line

Back to the garden

To Adam and Eve

The first man and first woman

The only two never born

And these two are one


But further back

Before Eve

There was only Adam

Yet she was with him

A part of him

A rib, some say


So she was present

With him

Before she was

Taken from him

And made to appear

Separate from him


Before that

There was no Adam

Only the dust of the ground

Out of which the man was formed

And became a living soul

After receiving the breath of life


Before that there was light


Before that there was

Heaven and earth

And God who created them

What is seen and what is not

The form and the formless

The particle and the wave

And these two are one


And between the creation

Of heaven and earth

And the light

Was the spirit of God

She who was with him

In the beginning

Before the dividing time


Genesis 1:2

“The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.  And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”



The creator is the cause of creation

Creation is the effect of the creator


By knowledge of the cause

The nature of the effect is known




One became two

So one could live

For if one lives

All live


The creator sleeps in his creation
