Crowley, Aleister - Book of Lies - Dewdrops



Type of spiritual experience

A description of the experience

18              {Kappa-Epsilon-Phi-Alpha-Lambda-Eta Iota-Eta}


    Verily, love is death, and death is life to come.
    Man returneth not again; the stream floweth not
      uphill; the old life is no more; there is a new life
      that is not his.
    Yet that life is of his very essence; it is more He
      than all that he calls He.
    In the silence of a dewdrop is every tendency of his
      soul, and of his mind, and of his body; it is the
      Quintessence and the Elixir of his being.  Therein
      are the forces that made him and his father and his
      father's father before him.
    This is the Dew of Immortality.
    Let this go free, even as It will; thou art not its
      master, but the vehicle of It.
