Liber LXV, Cap II, v. 17-19
17. Also the Holy One came upon me, and I beheld a white swan floating in the blue.
18. Between its wings I sate, and the æons fled away.
19. Then the swan flew and dived and soared, yet no whither we went.
"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."

Angel in form of a beautiful, elegant white bird. The usual perception of time disappears, when the I-consciousness is aligned with the motion of the Angel (when the ego rests on it); this motion takes place in eternity. There is no purpose in this flight - no destination or goal to be reached.
