According to Babylonian Mythology the Earth was created when Tia-met, the Great Dragon and the Goddess of Chaos, was conquered by the god Marduk. All of creation was made from her body but she wasn’t dead. Her divine spark was within every human being and that spark began to remember who it was as humans began to evolve and return to their sense of divinity and power. What does the Lady tell us today about order, chaos, and most of all, our fear of chaos and change in a society where we may have just been civilized to death?
