EXAMINE: CLUSTER OF STARS
Still trembling from the experience with the cloud painting, you touch the Cluster of Stars. Your heart calms down to a steady rhythm, and your breath comes and goes like gentle ocean waves. A white lion appears and comes to you, rubbing against you lovingly. You look into his beautiful eyes and with your free hand you stroke his snowy mane. "Don't go away when I take my hand off," you murmur. He looks at you compassionately. "I am always there, whether you see me or not." He breathes on you, and you feel your weight of guilt and regret lift. You let go of the wall, reaching down quickly to kiss Mano's kindly face but he vanishes. Still, before you can experience too much disappointment, you feel a soft kiss on your cheek and smell wild honey on the breeze. You smile and head back to the path.
