The stranger dances her deeper into the cavern's swirling waters.

Absorption is when individual identify is devoured by forces which end it.

The point of individual identity is the choice to resist archetypal forces. Whenever you feel inadequate, in any way, it is quite easy to want the intensity of identifying with an archetype, sacrificing any ability to fulfill yourself as a conscious human being. The adversity of being taken over is of the subtlest kind. And I think you can only guard against it by committing to an integrated act that strengthens your being as you create with superior forces in a balanced way.

It is important to seek challenge from those who ground you in everyday life.

It is also important to remember that quite often needs are better transformed than they are fulfilled. You can often serve yourself by recreating your needs, rather than simply satisfying them.
