WITCH OF THE DAWN
On Tour with ESOTOURIC
"It is very difficult to study and discuss things such as Yoga and Alchemy, for inherently we must create some sort of definition and articulation of what exactly is included in these activities. But when we are discussing activities that, according to origin legends, were taught to mankind over eons of time through different cultures and languages by serpents from the sky, these definitions are anything but definite."

"For you see, the simple act of not sleeping can make one hallucinate and disassociate from reality. Now this is odd because those are the very things which occur in sleep itself. It is as if the dream is going to happen one way or another, whether we close our eyes or not, we can not stop the dream from overtaking us in a compulsive possession. Our minds go into Hallucinations of their own accord if we do not get them delivered by dreams every night."
