Then train your energy flows until you gain self-control,
And after receiving the three superior initiations, cultivate ensuing desire,
To perfect the nature of the four levels of joy,
For six months or until signs of achievement appear in the body.

Unite male (solar) and female (lunar) energies,
Developing the method of mixing higher and lower energies,
Female assisting male and male assisting female,
The principles of each being separately practiced.

Intensify and elevate your practice, broadening the horizons of your pleasure;
But if pleasure and Emptiness are not identified,
Profitlessly you stray from the path of Tantra:
Apprehend the intrinsic unity of pleasure and Emptiness.

Guard the samaya of Guru and Dakini like your eyes;
In various skillful ways enjoy the five sacred substances;
Practice to perfection the skill of retaining your seed-essence;
Be attentive to obstacles and hostile powers;
If the samaya is impaired strive to restore it.

About the body: do not let it slip into old habits
Or you will become like ordinary men and women;
With the confidence of the deity, meditate charged with power
And inform your focal points of energy as a principal and his circle of deities.

About speech: concentrate upon mantra and energy flows -
Without energy control your sexual activity is fornication;
Properly execute the exercises of ‘drawing up’ and ‘saturating’
And with the nails of your imagination apply an hermetic seal.

About mind: identify the conditioned mind with seed-essence itself;
If seed-essence is lost in actuality
The karma of slaying a Buddha is incurred;
At all costs gain self-control.

Absorb yourself intently in the experience of desire,
For without it the mysteries have no meaning;
Desire as pure pleasure is the goal fulfilled.

Preserve constant cognition of the primal purity of experience;
Protect the samaya like your body and life,
For if it is broken there is no authority to restore it.

The foregoing is advice upon meditation practice.

All you initiates into the tantric mysteries
Should bury your ambition and conceit in a pit,
Pour your sanctimony and pride into a river,
Bum your obsessive lust and infatuation in fire,
Cast your selfish aggression and perverse behavior on the wind,
And dissolve your shamelessness and deceitful lies in space.

Protect your secret sexual practices from prying eyes;
Do not be loose with your sexual organs, bind them fast;
Do not flaunt your signs of success;
Rely upon the Yidam deity as the indivisible three roots;
Maintain regular torma offerings and ganachakra feast rites;
Preserve the seed of kindness for the sake of other beings;
Do not break the flow of formless benediction.

The foregoing is general instruction upon Action.

With that understanding fixed in your heart, O Siddhi, 
You and I are essentially one, 
And through emanation we will give purpose to beings of the future.

Come here and get over my knees, young lady



“I know you like the smell of delicious damp grass that grows near old walls and that your hands ate beautiful opening out if your sleeves and that the back of your head is a mossy sheltered cave where there is no trouble in the wind and that my cheek just fits the depression in your shoulder”
-in a letter from Zelda to Scott Fitzgerald 1931

"The air blows warm and soft as the swirl of a painters brush outside and the dry leaves sink in a slow nocturne. There is a frustrated melancholy floating on the wind in stagnant spirals and it feels like the nights in This side of paradise. Effulgent voluptuous rain smothers the treetops and the darkness shoves along the street in scandalized puffs."

"dearest my love,
The sky closed over the lake like a gray oyster shell and pink pearls of clouds lay in the crease where the water met the juras-still in the black iridescence and I wanted you to be there in a boat with me so I could watch the funny way you do things, so sweet, the way you move, like the tickling of a kittens whiskers on my neck.”

- Zelda To Scott Fitzgerald from Prangins clinic Switzerland Summer 1931
