Transcript

[Excerpt from a work detailing one of the Seven Strictures]

Restrict the Roving Feet that love to trespass. They pay no heed to the boundary stones of a neighbor’s fields. They wander into foreign lands, only to return with their soles blackened by iniquity. Where have you strayed that destruction now comes behind you? Would you walk across burning coals or broken glass? Then why do you prowl into the homes of the honest, or into the dens of hidden things, for the result is the same. You will fall into the Void! Instead, rest your feet on a firm foundation so that when the winds of the Outsider shriek against you, you will stand firm and not be overthrown.
