Before the chaos, the world was
wholly covered by the milky mist. The mist filled the
unlimited space. It was an unrecognized existence. It
was the root of everything - gods, goddess, the
universe, and all of nature and any of invisible
abstractions. Each of them was, at the same time, the
milky mist itself regardless of their different
Amongst the goddesses, Zeus was not well spoken of,
because they were holding in check mutually despite
their carnal desires with him. Whenenever Hera heard of
such rumors from other goddesses, she said nothing with
a frown. She hated his wily sensualty. She could not
find even a trace of sincerity in his past love affairs.
When Zeus approached and tried to violate Hera, she,
with her elbow, gave a strong blow to his pit of the
stomach. In an instant, Zeus crouched down.
Hera gently said to Zeus.
"First of all you must divorce Tenis
and get separated from your children."
He saw an infinite maternity in the glow of her green
eyes and said, watching her eyes.
"I swear I will follow you."
Then, she added solemnly.
"You must not do any of extramarital sex."
"What a beauty you say! I am entirely yours. Why can I
be unfaithful. We will make a gorgeous wedding party."
The engagement was effected immediately.
She fell into his sturdy breast and arms.
Leaf tops of evergreen oak swept the canopy. Golden
rains purified the air and lands. All things in nature
shined vividly. The troop of eagles deployed silently in
good order for vigilance over the cobalt blue way up
Olympus was flooded by the gods in full dresses and the
goddesses who gorgeously dressed up contending the
beautiful with each other.
Small birds were singing in chorus accompanied by a
lyre. Nymphs were dancing in mid air.
Zeus and Hera appeared in front of the attendees at the
Palace. Everyone gaped in astonishment at Hera's pure
whiteness. The world was wholly covered by her deep
The goddess of goddesses was born. The wedding party
continued for 300 years covering all the places in
Since after the marriage, Hera was vaguely feeling a
gloomy foreboding about Zeus's fatal defeat someday in
future. To add, from time to time, she heard of his love
affairs with other women.
Hera opened her heavily depressed heart to Gaia. Gaia
consoled Hera but said nothing specifically to solve the
problems. Gaia gave a pomegranate to Hera without
explaining anything. Hera had already known how it
Getting back to the Palace, Hera ordered Iris and Hora
to discretely trail after Zeus and report her the facts
that they found. The information brought by them made
her jealousy flare up. She decided her mind.
Hera told Zeus to attend the hall of the Palace and
accused him of his incerity in a round about way. He
replied evasively to her accuses. She named Serene, Deto,
Haristo, Ramia, Ioand so forth. She abused his
disgusting plays with them one by one with the details
of their obscene behaviors.
Getting entirely at a loss for an excuse any longer, he
flied into a furious rage of no sense. He grabbed her
hair of the head and hanged her from the ceiling of the
hall. She easily removed the hook for herself and flied
down and stood up on the floor.
That moment, he was attacked by a awfuly strong
headache. He could not get rid of the pain for a long
time. One day, he had Hefaitos to crack his skull with a
battle-ax to see what was in it. Out of his skull
appeared Atena with gold hair and deep marine blue eyes.
She fully armed herself with a shield and spear in her
hands. The unbearable headache of Zeus was over.
Hera summoned Atena. Atena dropped to one knee with her
right hand on her breast in front of Hera. Placing in
the hands of Atena the pomegranate that Gaia had once
endowed to her, Hera commanded Atena to govern the
territory of Athens in peace.
Atena placed the pomegranate deep in a sacred cavern at
the hill of Athens and strictly sealed the hole.
Zeus told his close aides to set a rumor that Zeus and
Hera were at he crisis of divorce and he was getting
married with other beautiful lady. The rumor spread with
The rumor swelled further. Hera heard that the lady
dressed in with scarlet was passing on foot the street
just in front of the Place.
Raising her eyebrows in anger and squealing, Hera dashed
out of the Place. Hera jumped on the lady and ripped up
the lady's dress. Then, to her surprise, what appeared
there was a clay figure.
Hera got back to the Place, where Zeus was waiting for
her. They were reunited tightly once again.
After exterminating Cronos and the lineal relatives of
Titan at Titanomakia, Zeus had established himself as
the god to govern the celestial sphere.
He established the new order and harmony of the whole
universe. The god of gods was born. However, who could
imagine what would happen to him later?
There had been a discord between the Olympus and Gigas
who was av immortal giant. As a consequence, the
Gigantmakia War flared up.
Commanding the vast forces, Gigas attacked the Olympus.
The sacred hill faced on the crisis in an instance. Zeus
summoned Heracleitos and gave him the strong bow and
arrows that could pierce any material.
Heracleitos, with his marvelous power, drew the bow and
shot an arrow, which pieced the heart of Gigas. At the
same time, Adamas's sickle in the hands of Zeus
fulgurated roaring the sky and land. The troop of Gigas
was annihilated at once. The fierce battles were over
with the complete victory of the Olympus.
The result of this war left an ill feeling to the mind
of Gaia, who had once been governing both the land and
sky initially efore the era of Curonos.
She could not tolerate. She ordered Qupohn the Monster
to destroy the Olympus. The internecine war broke out
again at the territory of the Olympus.
The viorence of Qupohn ripped land, crushed the
mountains to pieces, filled the sky with huge roar.
Every god and goddess escaped from the Palace to Egypt.
Only Zeus made a stand against the enemy.
After the violent duel between Zeus and Qupohn, Zeus met
with a severe defeat for the first time. Zeus was torn
from limb to limb and locked in the cave at Coripion by
Qupohn. While, Qupohn was heavily injured too, and he
returned to the palace of Gaia for treatment.
Hera had Hermes to rescue Zeus and get him back to Samos
where she had been born. She washed and treated the body
of Zeus with water which flew out of the sacred spring.
Zeus recovered soon.
All things in nature became frightened and deeply
shuddered at a sinister symptom under the sky filled by
the heavy black clouds.
Gaia, with the utmost secrecy, summoned Hera to her
palace. Her room was filled by the roses of whiteness.
Her lady attendant closed the thick curtains and left
there shutting up the doors.
The room was filled by the fragrance and soft lights of
roses' pure whiteness. Gaia and Hera mutually shared
what were in their hearts. In conclusion, Gaia said to
Hera in a very round about way that power, itself only,
could not govern the universe. Hera understood correctly
what Gaia said to her.
Once again, in the deep skies, Zeus and Qupohn stood
opposite each other to finally decide the victory or
Adamas's sickle flashed. The thunders roared. The magma
and devouring flames flew in whirls. The orbits of the
sun and moon got into a complete disorder. The canopy
bore the innumerable cracks. The stars dispersed in all
directions. The universe fell into a complete mess.
Hera heard the voice of Gaia just saying a name "Moia"from
nowhere. She immediately summoned Atena.
Atena attended in front of Hera at once, arming herself
with a heavy guard and holding in her hand the
pomegranate that Hera had once entrusted to her.
Atena delivered to Moia by hand the pomegranate, in
which every wisdom and desire for peace of all the
In fact, Moia had been pressed by Qupohn to give him her
fruit of victory. She gave him the pomegranate instead.
Qupohn ate it. In an instant, he lost his enormous
The tide of battle in the skies turned. Zeus finally
cornered Qupohn to Sicilia, where Qupohn was strictly
sealed under the Mount Etna.
Zeus saved the universe from the total ruin and
established the ultimate order and harmony for the
universe and all the nature. Hera's deep brightness
covered the whole world again.
Shining in the golden ligh, the Olympus greeted the
triumphant reurn of Zeus. Every god and goddess
acknowledged Zeus as the omniscient, omnipotent god.
Purifying herself in the sacred spring at Kanatos, Hera
gave away all of herself to Zeus. He did realize of her
faith, dedication and chastity as well as her courage
and wisdom. Two of them went into deep love and
completely became one in the midst of milky mist. The
time, distance, space, all nature were painted onto a
canvas wholly covered by a single color of milky white.
Whether recognized or not recognized, we, each of us,
are in the milky mist where all things are independently
existing in the one.
