Consciousness - Pre-creation
In the beginning, I remained still.
I did not have any image or reflection -
since there was nothing that was obstructing my vision.
My state was like a boundless and completely filled ocean
under the completely empty and infinitely immense sky.
The ocean and the sky appear as a blue hue, deep and transparent.
They cannot be measured.
Now I wish to create dimension, space, and time.
I look for my reflection in the water and the sky yet I do not see my reflection.
I intensify my search and finally find my image.
I start playing with my other half.
Pre-creation can be thought of as a state of localization. In the beginning, a system either microscopic, macroscopic even universal is in an insulating or localised state. This is called ‘Svatta’ or pure state. This is a dormant state like a sleeping swan. In this state only small vibrations exist like rippling waves across the ocean surface. The state is neutral without any polarising charges. It is the unity of Shiva and Sakti, a non-dualistic state. Although this state represents complete entanglement of its constituent parts there is conflict between these parts. It is like ice crystals floating on water.
