I was in a cave, but it wasn't dark or dreary. Instead it was illuminating with the colours blue, violet and purple. If there was a cave for fairies to live, this would be it. I looked around me, and noticed my lover staring at me. He was indeed my lover, I knew it. But he was in the form of a dragon. He managed to captivate me with his love, and we made love. How we overcame the feat just doesn't make sense.
I backed away slowly in shock, and then noticed my arms. They were changing from brown to blue, and scales began to form. I was changing into a reptile. I began to cry, and said to my lover that I wanted to stay a human. But he smiled lovingly into my eyes, and assured me that I would be alright. During my transformation, I was ambushed by a few loving children. They danced around me, turning my anxiety and sadness into calmness and happiness. One of them grabbed a glass tube, and put it down my throat. The other children held my arms down, still laughing gleefully. I too began to laugh. Hallucinogens were being poured into the tube, and my lover stood on the side, laughing in the most loving way.
"He's trying to make me trip out!" I said to myself. The children then fled the scene, and left me in my intoxicated state. My lover came to my side, and showed me a chart of how long the effects of the drugs would last.
It was going to be a very long trip.

This instrument, of Chaldaean origin (7), is the mystic symbol of
justice, that is, of the equivalence and equation of guilt and punishment. In emblems, marks and allegories it is often depicted inside a circle crowned by a fleurde-lis, a star, a cross or a dove (4). In its most common form, that is, two equal
scales balanced symmetrically on either side of a central pivot, it has a secondary
meaning—subservient to the above—which is, to a certain extent, similar to other
symbolic bilateral images, such as the double-bladed axe, the Tree of Life, trees of
the Sephiroth, etc. The deepest significance of the balance derives from the zodiacal archetype of Libra, related to ‘immanent justice’, or the idea that all guilt
automatically unleashes the very forces that bring self-destruction and punishment (40).

Traditional symbols of love always express a duality in which the two
antagonistic elements are, nevertheless, reconciled. Thus, the Indian lingam, the Yang-Yin, or even the Cross, where the upright beam is the world-axis and Chinese
the cross-beam the world of phenomena. They are, in other words, symbols of a
conjunction, or the expression of the ultimate goal of true love: the elimination of
dualism and separation, uniting them in the mystic ‘centre’, the ‘unvarying mean’
of Far Eastern philosophy. The rose, the lotus flower, the heart, the irradiating
point—these are the most frequent symbols of this hidden centre; ‘hidden’ because it does not exist in space, although it is imagined as doing so, but denotes the
state achieved through the elimination of separation. The biological act of love
itself expresses this desire to die in the object of the desire, to dissolve in that
which is already dissolved. According to the Book of Baruch: ‘Erotic desire and
its satisfaction is the key to the origin of the world. Disappointment in love and
the revenge which follows in its wake are the root of all the evil and the selfishness
in this world. The whole of history is the work of love. Beings seek and find one
another; separate and hurt one another; and in the end, comes acute suffering
which leads to renunciation.’ Or to put it another way: Maya as opposed to
Lilith, illusion balanced by the serpent.
