CHAPTER XI - Lords of the Day and Night

day and the night. By the power that is put in my left hand, and the power that I grasp in my right, I am lord of the two ways.
`And my flower on earth is the jasmine flower, and in heaven the flower Hesperus.
`I will not command you, nor serve you, for the snake goes crooked to his own house.
`Yet I will be with you, so you depart not from yourselves.
`There is no giving, and no taking. When the fingers that give touch the fingers that receive, the Morning Star shines at once, from the contact, and the jasmine gleams between the hands. And thus there is neither giving nor taking, nor hand that proffers nor hand that receives, but the star between them is all, and the dark hand and the light hand are invisible on each side. The jasmine takes the giving and the receiving in her cup, and the scent of the oneness is fragrant on the air.
`Think neither to give nor to receive, only let the jasmine flower.
`Let nothing spill from you in excess, let nothing be reived from you.
`And reive nothing away. Not even the scent from the rose, nor the juice from the pomegranate, nor the warmth from the fire.
`But say to the rose: Lo! I take you away from your tree, and your breath is in my nostrils, and my breath is warm in your depths. Let it be a sacrament between us.
`And beware when you break the pomegranate; it is sunset you take in your hands. Say: I am coming, come thou. Let the Evening Star stand between us.
`And when the fire burns up and the wind is cold and you spread your hands to the blaze, listen to the flame saying: Ah! Is it thou? Comest thou to me? Lo, I was going the longest journey, down the path of the greatest snake. But since thou comest to me, I come to thee. And where thou fallest into my hands, fall I into thine, and jasmine flowers on the burning bush between us. Our meeting is the burning bush, whence the jasmine flowers.
'Reive nothing away, and let nothing be reived from you. For reiver and bereaved alike break the root of the jasmine flower, and spit upon the Evening Star.
