A description of the experience
Eleanor C Merry – The Flaming Door
In very remote times intercourse between the sexes [in Celtic society] was carried out in a dream-like state of consciousness, and the dream of the occurrence took the form that the human beings concerned were throwing stones behind them on to the ground.
We know, too, that there are countless legends of men and women being " turned into stone " by wizards or fairies; and the " wizards " of our own minds-fear or ecstasy or passion-will do the same for us even to-day !
But none of these legends could have arisen if it had not been felt, deeply and intensely, how the soul of man is an alien guest in the physical body, and could take its flight from the solid world and leave the body entranced and motionless.
