7 August (Fire) Liber LXV, 4:61

Postby Al-Shariyf » Sun Aug 07, 2011 7:33 am

61. I too am the Soul of the desert; thou shalt seek me yet again in the wilderness of sand.
"To advance—that means Work. Patient, exhausting, thankless, often bewildering Work. Dear sister, if you would but Work! Work blindly, foolishly, misguidedly, it doesn’t matter in the end: Work in itself has absolute virtue." -Magick Without Tears

To seek again...

Wilderness of sand...
It fels like this could be anything, it is so general. My initial guesses include the Abyss, the earth, and the arid nature of Chokmah, hot and dry as Binah is cold and moist?

Throw a three sided dice—the Abyss feels best. So, to seek in the Abyss, the place of the mind, amid the dispersed fragments—the background noise that is the stuff of our efforts at reasoning, the mistaken sense of self, and the ego.

Soul of the desert...
Set, or Shaitan? The name is based on the sound of the desert wind, it may even be specific to the wind that kicks up at night, so darkness is also implied. Wind, air, dark mind... Also, the almost universal fear among tribal peoples that attaches itself to this apparition...

I too am this also.

Curious. If this is the message, then I am left to wonder what value this knowledge has...

Love and Will
"I remember seeing Atlas looking at a world whose hoops and rings had been broken by Copernicus, where Tycho Brahe placed his back beneath the globe, and a shouting Ptolemy tried to support the round lump, to stop it from falling into the void. In the mean time Copernicus was breaking many crystal spheres that were placed around the globe and was stamping out the little lights that flickered in the crystal jars." (de Hooghe, Hieroglyphica, Amsterdam, 1744)

I think there is contrast to the prior verse. That is, I read the prior as "back in the world with all the dead people." Here the Angel is saying, "In addition to that, I am also the spirit of solitude, the soul echoing in the vacuum of desolation. Go back into the world now, but there will be a time you come back into this desolation (this onlyiness) and find me again."
Love is the law, love under will.
Yours in L.V.X.,
