The Chariot

Cheth to my left, Cancer to my right, the path was reddy blue with a floor of mud.

There was a giant who bade me sit as he did.

"This is the path of starting the spiritual journey, realising what is missing and aiming for it. It is a path of difficulty and hardship, the folly and innocence of youth as well as idealism."

I came upon a serpent. It struck my right foot and I became unconscious.

I recovered and came at last to a huge, fat Goddess. She said that my star in sight was to her but excrement. If I united with her, I would be carried on up towards her goal. I gave myself up to her in ecstasy and bliss before returning the way that I had come.
