Wow, today's chapter blew me away completely. I got into this incredible Zone. This is going to be my chosen chapter of Liber LXV to memorize.

Tarot Meditation – The Hierophant

Isis unleashed her veil and with the swing of her arm she covered the sky into dark-blue splendor pierced with magnificence of starry delight. Like a pierced fabric in the place of the stars white milk pours out. The river of milk was formed and I jumped in and was carried by the current, and I was drowned in it. I was tossed down the waterfall and I hit the bed of diamond rocks below, and was scattered into little pieces. Some pieces were carried far away; some were taken away by vultures; others fed the onyx fish in the milky water. And so I was scattered across the land and I became a bird and a fish, and water and land. I nourished the trees and flowers, I nourished the birds and fish. And I possessed them, so that I was everywhere. And everywhere they went and left trace, it was the trace of me. But it was not me in my separateness from the universe, nor in my assumed identity. It was that Me which was one with the stars, which was one with the God of the Underworld, and the God of the Sun, and one with the Gods of Earth and Sky, one with Goddess of Water, and one with the Goddess of Stars.
And through the eyes of the bird I saw everything upon the land; through the body of the fish I tasted every body of water there is. And as the little flowers I was embraced by the cold earth and I was nourished by the air above it. As water I touched every flame that I put out. As the mist I was raised up into the sky and dwelled in clouds before coming back down. I was the light in the rainbow which I formed. I was the tickle in the breeze. I tickled and I was tickled. And it felt like the vibration of a child’s laughter – that inner child that’s seated at the heart. And there was a great joy in that. There was gladness, and there was beauty in it, too.
When I span my wings I can cover the entirety of the Universe. I can play hide and seek with the stars and blow them away playfully just to have them swing back toward me. And I can dance with them and hear them jingle as they laugh, as we share in unimaginable joys of play and innocence, rejoicing for pure existence, celebrating being and non-being.
In this place there is no fear, there is no tight gripping. There is only blissful buoyancy, endless floating through endless space in the bark that sails smoothly unobstructed by time or by space.
