Pale or purple, veiled orvoluptuous, I who am all pleasure and purple, and drunkenness of the innermostsense, desire you. Put on the wings, and arose the coiled splendour withinyou: come unto me! ... Sing the rapturous love-song unto me! Burn to meperfumes! Wear to me jewels! Drink to me, for I love you! I love you! Iam the blue-lidded daughter of Sunset; I am the naked brilliance of thevoluptuous night-sky. To me! To me! "This is the second practice of Meditation"("ccxx.I." 13, 61, 63, 64, 65).

miraculous manner. Thoth is both the Magus of Taro (seeLib. 418) and the

the Lotus. Note that the "Ibis position" formulates thisconception most
exactly. ED.) "This is the fourth practice of Intelligence"("ccxx. II." 7).
