'In the beginning was the Word'
"En arche en ho logos, kai ho logos en pros
ton theon, kai theos en ho logos".
"In the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was God" (John 1:1).
"The shaman who desires a song does not fix his or her mind on particular words nor sing a known tune. In dreams, or other dreamlike states, the songs come through the barrier that separates the human being from the spirit world...perhaps it is the mind of the shaman that is now ready to receive the sacred sounds that come from within or without and are rendered into a poetic chant. These poetries, arising at a moment of divine inspiration in the crucible of the soul, are often felt to be medicine."
