The Book of Life
A thought for the day

Pathways for uncertain travellers on the road to Now
Ten   Fire

  Swaying with the rhythm.
Playing subtly on the pipes
You call the serpent
to do its dance and act in a trance,
Its movement in time with your own,.
  Remember the snake hears not
the warbling trill of the pipe,
itís only for the audience,
Its hypnosis depends on your movement
to keep it in force.
  Stop the dance, end the trance
only at your peril!
  Anyone who raises the serpent energy
must know how to cap it again
if they are to forego injury to themselves.
