Liber LXV, Cap II, v. 7
7. Moreover I beheld a vision of a river. There was a little boat thereon; and in it under purple sails was a golden woman, an image of Asi wrought in finest gold. Also the river was of blood, and the boat of shining steel. Then I loved her; and, loosing my girdle, cast myself into the stream.
"Write, & find ecstasy in writing! Work, & be our bed in working! Thrill with the joy of life & death! Ah! thy death shall be lovely: whoso seeth it shall be glad. Thy death shall be the seal of the promise of our age long love. Come! lift up thine heart & rejoice! We are one; we are none."

Vision of a river: the flow of life. Golden image of Asi, on a boat of steel, is the spiritual Ideal, something we perceive as perfection, and are magnetically drawn to it; it gathers the forces of our subconsciousness into a single-pointed stream, focuses our energies. This awakened inner passion makes us let go of previous attachment to personality-motivated state of being (the girdle), incites our courage to cast ourselves into the stream i.e. become a devotee.
