I invoke Thee, the Goddess Nu Kua, Creator of all things, Who hast fashioned diverse creatures from the clay of matter. Thou Who art Restorer of Harmony and Bringer of the Arts, aid us in our search for Heaven on earth!
Heavenly Beauty comes from the union of opposites, and calls forth response in every heart. Know that the loveliness of tree and flower and cloud is no accident, but, is created by dreams of Celestial Spirits. All Nature sings through the stars and encircling planets, and in the song of birds at dawn and twilight. The rich colours of the peacock's tail and of peonies and cassia trees blend with the rainbow colours of the sky. Nothing comes from nothing. Creation springs from the Celestial Artists who weave dream worlds from silken threads of happiness. Even ugliness and discord are brought into harmony by their complementary virtues. There is no discord that cannot be resolved, no colour clash that is immune from the celestial symphony of perfect beauty. For evil and ugliness bring evolving souls to goodness through experience, and so play their part in forming beautiful robes of Blessed Spirits.
Human art and nature are one, for humans are part of nature. The artist, the poet, the musician are inspired by the same Deities who weave the night sky with innumerable stars, and scatter wild flowers among grasses. The joy of the human is to join consciously in the Dance of Creation, choosing to transform evil to good through bringing the opposites into harmony.
If you find such beauty in the present, and it can be found nowhere else, you will create magnificent forests through the severed trunks of felled trees. Among ugly buildings of polluted towns you will create coloured pavilions set among flowery gardens. You will change human faces made ugly by greed and hatred into the smiling countenance of Blessed Spirits. All this may be accomplished by the Magical Arts.
Behold a vision! A woman some call Nu Kua makes a stone shrine filled with darkness. In the roof she creates a small hole. With clay she moulds a figure of a God of her own size and places it in the shrine. She prostrates herself and prays. A lightning flash strikes her from above, and she is transformed into a Goddess! The clay figure becomes alive and walks out of the shrine into the world.
