January 6 (Hadit) Liber L., Cap. II, v. 70-72

70. There is help & hope in other spells. Wisdom says: be strong! Then canst thou bear more joy. Be not animal; refine thy rapture! If thou drink, drink by the eight and ninety rules of art: if thou love, exceed by delicacy; and if thou do aught joyous, let there be subtlety therein!
71. But exceed! exceed!
72. Strive ever to more! and if thou art truly mine — and doubt it not, an if thou art ever joyous! — death is the crown of all.

Excess, growth, expansion - and all this with the general idea of ascension. The verses encourage, again, evolution of the human being to catch up to divinity. To reach deeper, higher, and further. Our capacity grows as we use it and almost because we use it. We are not to be satisfied and stagnant in our animal natures, but to reach further to grasp the stars, i.e., divinity. Even death is not the end, but the crown, our victorious sign. Life ever exists as does our inmost nature and whose realization is indeed the beginning of discovery of our throne.
