She enters a religious celebration for Shiva and sits with several ‘observants’ on bleachers on the left side of the room. A pipe is being passed, which she does not smoke; nor does she say the words they want her to say. At the conclusion of the service, she exits through a door to her right, straightening the folds of her long linen robe.
Entering a busy plaza, she witnesses a man to her left in obvious glee at having just destroyed a lovely bird. She could walk past, like the other people, or stop to notice. She takes a couple of steps so she can see the man’s face, then turns to him, raises her left index finger, and in a voice not quite her own, admonishes him, “Do not use false power. Do not use false power.” He is chagrined, as she turns to continue her walk.
A distant voice is calling to the throng of people that “the most revered one” is seeking a successor. She is drawn to a great outdoor assembly of worshipers around a central oriental temple. Now, “the most revered one” is calling to the women for a worthy mate and successor. Many women are moving toward the center. She is told to join them, so she moves slowly around a wall - out of the darkness, holding her arms low, palms forward. She begins to levitate, then in slow, elevating circles she moves around the ancient god with many faces at the center of the ornate temple. His head turns as far as it can to watch her; then another face appears to continue watching as she circles him.
She slowly descends and is invited to walk up the long staircase toward him. He greets her with a smile and an embrace. As she faces him, he becomes sexually excited – she can see his genitals grow beneath a white terry cloth robe. She demurs, saying “this is not for us”, and, gesturing with her left hand, draws his attention to her left to honor a joyful couple that has arisen, hand-in-hand from the celebrating crowd.
She then holds her palms low and open to him; he tries to hold her hands in a dominant position, but she insists until he relents and rests his hands, palms down, on hers. She reassures him that he will be just fine; that she has to go elsewhere; and that he must promise to always “consider before you act, or you will be forever sorry.” He is saddened, but agrees. Then she leaves.
