Exit the Warehouse of Slumber. Perceive the alteration in your state. All of a sudden find yourself on the cusp of spring and summer. The music blossoms with all the joys that can only be possessed by the concord created by Nature. Something germinates there among the undertones and the rhythms of colours. What fruits await you upon the exit from the world of slumber? The answer shall come, but, to begin with, listen carefully to the whisper of the words. For the first time in the whole journey you comprehend what they are about. These are the very words – sacred, echoing on the cusp of being asleep and being awake. The saving grace, without which there is no point in returning to the awakened worlds. Check your person and decide whether you’ve got everything with you and whether you’ve forgotten to bring with you the main thing – yourself.
