Have you noticed how the old Hebrew book of Genesis described how Kundalini (the mythic snake representing our creative power) got detached from everyday mind? In all the Near East mythologies the serpent is the consort of the Mother Goddess who remained more or less equal with her male counterpart; but in Genesis these two principles got conflicted and inverted (missionary position), and Yahweh made Goddess Eve (his divorced wife) even born of man (Adam) and the source of pain, to boot. Her serpent consort (her dying and resurrected son) was cast to the ground and below, where he became the lord of the underworld as the devil’s consort. (I know this is confusing because I’m making mythological references to information not stated here. But we can flesh it out)
Oddly enough,however, the underground is exactly where the serpent god Kundalini resides, at the base of the spine where it lies coiled as creative energy awaiting to be awakened through spiritual practice. One must invite Kundalini to return to the mind through meditation so it can unite it with its lost husband (mind) in the heart as body/mind.
Spontaneous creativity is their marriage (heart and mind), and their child is one’s creative work and compassion for all beings. Christianity metaphorically demonstrates this marriage in the return of Eve as Mary, who by mating with God, restored and remarried the divine couple through her dying and resurrected son Jesus who— like her ancient consort the snake who sheds his earthly skin—dies and is resurrected on the Tree at the world axis (the Garden) where eternity meets and joins with time….Whew! Did you get all that?
