laughter of the folk folly

Postby gerry456 » Fri Feb 12, 2016 6:06 am

Yknow you are told to not fear the laughter of the folk folly, Cp3 17. The implication is that as one of the .. chosen ones. Cp1 31 you are going to be {******} with by the ones who are not the chosen ones. They will find you i.e. your true nature, funny.
2.19 They shall rejoice, our chosen: who sorroweth is not of us.

2.21 We have nothing with the outcast and the unfit: let them die in their misery. For they feel not. Compassion is the vice of kings: stamp down the wretched & the weak: this is the law of the strong: this is our law and the joy of the world.

More to the point, what are the ingredients of such a chosen one, a king or queen?

Liber Legis uses the word "king" to mean Adept. At least, that's my view, and that of Soror Meral. This is routine Qabbalistic code, since Melekh is one of the titles of Tifereth.

K ta, so a budding Adept is one of "the folk"?

No, no, no, that's all backwards.

It's saying that common folks (ordinary people, the masses) are likely the make fun of what they don't understand. Adepts are counselled not to fear being ridiculed by the masses.

...and likewise, aspiring Adepts also?

100% agree!
The masses "ordinary people" have a totally different
Perspective of the world. It's easy to see where they might view Thelemites as bat (****) :bat: but that should
In no way deter us from the path.
We being Thelemites, free noble men and women
Should care little of what those in cages think of us.
