No thing existed, nor did nothing exist :
there was no air - filled space, no sky beyond.
What held it all ? And where ? And who secured it ?
Was water all there was, deep beyond measure ?
There was no death, nor anything immortal -
no sign by which to mark off night and day.
Self - moved where no wind blew, one Being breathed:
other than it no thing had being then.
All was obscure at first, darkness in darkness,
an endless ocean - featureless, unlit:
there, at the heart of nothingness, the One
took on its being, born of an austere heat.
Desire came over it in the beginning -
first seed of all, engendered by the mind.
Wise thinkers who had searched within their hearts
found where what is bound to what is not,
and stretched their measuring - cord across the void.
Did a "below" exist then, did an "above" ?
There were seed - casters, there were primal forces -
power below, strong urgency above.
But who can know for certain, who proclaim it ?
Who can explain the birth of this various world ?
The Gods themselves came into existence later -
who knows the source of this great tangled world ?
- From the Rig Veda ( 1500 - 1200 B.C. )
If you have time compare this to our creation story from Gylfaginning. I love a good creation story and theirs is very similar and I think just as well written as ours.
Go with Odin's wisdom, Freyja's love and Thor's protection !
