11 August (Spirit) Liber LXV, 5:1-2

Postby Jim Eshelman » Thu Aug 11, 2011 5:15 am

1. Ah! my Lord Adonai, that dalliest with the Magister in the Treasure-House of Pearls, let me listen to the echo of your kisses.
2. Is not the starry heaven shaken as a leaf at the tremulous rapture of your love? Am not I the flying spark of light whirled away by the great wind of your perfection?

I think the scribe is speaking from the perspective of the Ruach addressing his Angel and expressing his desire to “listen” to the echo of the kisses that is the Union of the Magister and Angel. Sound is the sense attributed to Spirit and so the verse leads one to use that faculty to understand the Love that comes from on high to meet the Magister (the Treasure-House of Pearls are the abodes of the Supernals?). The power of Love is so great that it can cause even the heavens to shake. Each one of us Stars, sparks of light, are lit up on the background of the heavens and whirl in the shaking winds of this Love.

This love is powerful like the energy emitting from the Sun. It feels like an all-consuming energy that breaks down and causes change. It purifies and enraptures. It makes me think of line from a movie by an over the top preacher – “If loving the Lord is wronggg – I don’t wanna be right!”

Not much to add to Mojo's excellent analysis. Yes, the Magister is mentioned in third person, so the p.o.v. appears to be Ruach. "Treasure-House of Pearls" is a reference to the Supernals. - In addition to sound = spirit, I notice that this is an echo - reverberation - waves of sound spilling and rebounding. This makes quite a vivid, stirring impression when imagined just like that.

2. Is not the starry heaven shaken as a leaf at the tremulous rapture of your love? Am not I the flying spark of light whirled away by the great wind of your perfection?

And the whole of these verses is pure bhakti. They speak for themselves without much need of analysis. They are easy to adopt in a meditation on devotion to Adonai.
Love is the law, love under will.
Yours in L.V.X.,

I'm being led into a new place, and it feels like the first thing that needs to happen is for my eyes to adjust to the new level of light.

It seems we are in the heaven of the Ruach—a much different vision of it than of any lower perspective. This is how the mind partakes of divinity.

"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)
