Braveheart - Rivers, locks and nymphs
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
I find myself in a large lock. The gates behind give to a tropical sea. The gates in front to the river. At each side rise tall glass buildings. The large lock has only me and a number of aquatic animals in it. The gates in front open.
I get my head down and power-swim out of the lock up-river. The going gets hard as the river current is head-on against me. I put all my effort into swimming against the current. All sorts of debris rush past me from in front. I pass sinuous fishes swimming hard ahead but keeping stationary in relation to the banks of the river. Only I make way with powerful strokes.
I reach a kind of weir: water pounding over it from one height to a lower one. The froth and force of the water tear at me. I swim to the right and climb the right bank. I am naked with golden skin: a hot sun shining hard on me. I feel a tug at my penis and notice a small nymph-like women fastened to it with her mouth. Her eyes look at me and a message passes from her: take me over the weir.
I clamber over in the burning sun and reach a calm pool behind the weir. The nymph opens her mouth and drops off my penis into the water and swims away. I plunge in and swim on. I reach a raft of vegetation spanning the river from bank to bank. Along this raft sit large birds in a line. As I approach the raft the birds near me peck at me viciously. They want to stop me passing over it.
I drift back and survey the scene. I see the nymph in the water at the other side of the raft. She calls out and scores of similar nymphs turn up. They agitate the water and cause waves that dislodge the large birds who all fly away. I swim to the raft and climb over it into the pool beyond.
The nymphs crowd together and amid much splashing appears one very large nymph. She stands up in the water and I see that she is the tall one: maroon lips, black tight dress and long pink fingernails. I try to swim around her. She bends down and scoops me up. I am lain on a bank of the river. The hot sun dries me very quickly. I look up and there in front of me is my trinity.
They crowd round me and take me up in flight. From on high I see the river from the far horizon to the lock next to the sea
