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. Think not, o king, upon that lie: That Thou Must Die: verily thou shalt not die, but live. Now let it be understood: If the body of the King dissolve, he shall remain in pure ecstasy for ever. Nuit! Hadit! Ra-Hoor-Khuit! The Sun, Strength & Sight, Light; these are for the servants of the Star & the Snake.

Metzareph:Also, keep in mind that you can do things that may appear horrendous, but they are in fact the "compassionate things to do"... like killing the horse with broken legs. You are always at risk of making a huge mistake because you are acting compassionately. You loose perspective, but I'll say that it's better to be compassionate than cruel.
Metzareph: Thinking more on this subject I realized that the only safe way to practice compassion is to become a "king". Below Tiphareth, we cannot grasp the idea of true compassion; we can only strive to act compassionately. If we try to understand the idea standing below Tiphareth, we run the risk of becoming a caricature of the real thing, but, as I said before, it is always the best thing to do.

That is wrong thinking too. Why? Because it also relies on the validity of the idea of separation, difference.

Quote Metzareph: No, I think it is beyond "you" and "me".
Quote Metzareph: Going back to my argument that this exercise of compassion can be risky if you haven't understood the mysteries of 5=6.

I DO NOT see ALL fellow human beings as kings and queens. I see them as stars. A king and queen in this context represents a level of spiritual attainment of at least 5=6, or in other words, somebody that has attained the Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel.
