in the beginning

In the beginning was the Source
In the beginning
the G{od} of all that is
In the beginning
G{od} yearning

moaning, laboring
giving birth, rejoicing
And G{od} loved what she had made.
And G{od} said,
"It is good."

And G{od} knowing that all that is good is shared
    held the earth tenderly in her arms.
G{od} yearned for relationship.
G{od} longed to share the good earth,
And humanity was born in the yearning of G{od}.
We were born to share the earth.
