Cancer 5. A statue of ice sitting in the desert. It doesn’t melt. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Inspired
TITLE: RESISTANCE OF THE COMPULSIONS OF OUTER EXPERIENCE or HIDING TO PROTECT THE SELF
People argued over whether the statue was actually carved of clear quartz, or was truly fashioned of ice. For if it were of ice, why did it not melt? But, said others, quartz is not continually moist to the touch as this statue is, quartz does not drip water as this statue does. And yet for all its dripping over the centuries the statue never melted, always seemed the same, and was cold to the touch.
Travellers crossing the desert all knew of it, and, weary of their journey would come to kiss and lick its surface and place their cheeks against it, to drink in a little of its moisture and be comforted by its coolness.
