Book of Chalices: On Becoming a Herald of the Tide
Man is a bridge stretched between the animal and the quintessential form—a bridge over the Abyss.

A dangerous crossing, a dangerous wayfaring, a dangerous looking-back, a dangerous trembling and halting.

What is great in man is that he is a bridge and not a goal: what is lovable in man is that he is an over-going and a down-going. Few are the ones who make it past the bridge, but truly are they of great virtue:

They know not how to live except as down-goers, for they are the over-goers.

They do not first seek a reason beyond the stars for going down and being sacrifices, but sacrificeth themselves to the world, that the world of the quintessential form may hereafter arrive.

They liveth in order to know, and seeketh to know in order that the quintessential form may hereafter live. Thus seeketh they their own down-going.

They laboureth and inventeth, that they may build the house for the quintessential form, and prepare for it the ocean, animal, plant and their very body: for thus seeketh they their own down-going.

They chasten their God, because they loveth their God: for they must succumb through the wrath of their God.

Their soul is deep even in the wounding, and may succumb through a small matter: thus goeth they willingly over the bridge.

They are an open spirit and an open heart: thus is their head only the bowels of their heart; their heart, however, causeth their down-going.

Lo, I am become a herald of the tide, and a strong stream amidst the water: the tide is the quintessential form.
