Once All Was Darkness
Once, all was darkness.
The All remained unseen within the
darkness, unknown and unknowable,
as if in a deep sleep.
Then the All became manifest as the Lord,
who alone exists, and who is self-existent.
He is everywhere.
There is no place where He is not. He
exists in all things, and all things exist in
Him. He manifests Himself from Himself.
