Liber LXV, Cap. IV, v. 9-10
9. In the garden of immortal kisses, O thou brilliant One, shine forth! Make Thy mouth an opium-poppy, that one kiss is the key to the infinite sleep and lucid, the sleep of Shi-loh-am.
10. In my sleep I beheld the Universe like a clear crystal without one speck.
"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."

It seems that v. 9 is Angel's words, and v. 10 Adept's.
v. 9 alludes to Path of Mayim, and also He.
The Adepts speaks of the vision of Universe she perceives in this rarefied state of "lucid dream": the Universe is seen in Truth, as it is: perfect & beautiful. (it's worthy to meditate deeper on the word crystal here)
