The original eight cells of the beginning of existence grew a pearlescent coating to protect the fire of sun within. The fire glowed through the shell and lit the pearly lining into a living red glow. The Great Consciousness felt the separation from its source and called to the pearl of fire, "I can feel you, but I cannot see you. It is cold in this darkness and my nectar has frozen. I wish to feel the warmth of the sun within me again." The vibration entered the cosmos and the pearl quickened, "I am remembered!" The pearl jumped into the fire of the belly of earth and the ocean churned for a thousand years until the pearl rose into the heart of humanity. There the pearl shed its coat and the fire burned with the power of all infinity. The sun rose into the center - the void - where all things become no-thing. The Great Consciousness melted in the presence of the fire of love and Nectar flowed drop by drop into the ocean and calmed it to liquid glass.
