The rustling of the trees reached my ears, but I immediately concentrated and returned to listening to Monsieur Kreps. “Despite my advanced age and my vast experience, I was not destined to receive the ability to enter the depths of the supreme worlds, and therefore I will only be able to instruct you until a certain point, which is the point of no return for me. At that point, I will need to disconnect and return to reality, while you will have to continue on your own, using your insight and your transcendental characteristics. Remember everything that you have learned about the need and ability to separate emotion from reason. You must rise up over all feelings of fear, desire, love, affection and awe. We will define the objective now and you will attach your entire soul and strength to executing the task. If you do not succeed, your soul will continue to wander through unknown worlds and you will not be able to ever return to the earthly existence with which we are familiar. In this disconnected state, your mental experiences will cause your heart to accelerate until it fails to function, which will cause your death.”
I nodded in agreement as I felt my heart accelerate its beating and excitement thrilling my entire being.
