April 17 (Earth) Liber LXV, Cap. I, v. 15-17

15. I breathe, and there is infinite dis-ease in the spirit.
16. As an acid eats into steel, as a cancer that utterly corrupts the body; so am I unto the spirit of man.
17. I shall not rest until I have dissolved it all.

In thinking about these verses throughout the day yesterday I generally felt the dissonance in them. There is "dis-ease" which I've always loved in its punctuation. Dis Ease or as I'm thinking of it, unease, but juxtaposed with the idea of disease and continuing on with dissolution and corruption. I haven't reached a point where I can truly see this dissonance as just another musical phase on the sheet I'm living, but it gives me encouragement in getting the idea that times of ease and unease are just individual points in the scope of eternity. All things pass and there is That which remains.

Liber AL 2:9 wrote:Remember all ye that existence is pure joy; that all the sorrows are but as shadows; they pass & are done; but there is that which remains.
