I slept... 

Infinite Ocean asleep and snoring

I was everywhere and everything, like a vast ocean. But I was so sound asleep that I didn’t even know that I existed. 

If this had gone on forever, none of what I’m going to tell you would ever have happened.  

Fortunately for both of us, a whim deep inside of me stirred and I asked myself the question, 


You could say that an ocean wave of my infinite being grew and dissolved into a froth of bubbles.  

Ocean wave turning into surf

I was one of those bubbles. 

Ocean wave surf, bubbles with faces

It was then that I took on the name Atma. It means ‘drop soul.’ 

Instead of waking up from my deep sleep, I started dreaming. Little did I realize then what lay in store for me.
