Liber LXV, Cap. I, v. 2-3

2. Adonai spake unto V.V.V.V.V., saying: There must ever be division in the word.
3. For the colours are many, but the light is one.
"Write, & find ecstasy in writing! Work, & be our bed in working! Thrill with the joy of life & death! Ah! thy death shall be lovely: whoso seeth it shall be glad. Thy death shall be the seal of the promise of our age long love. Come! lift up thine heart & rejoice! We are one; we are none."

In the pendant kingdom, the resplendent spectrum of the one light is refracted, reflected and absorbed.
"But all we say and do, however casually, adds up to more, far more, than our most strenuous Operations. 'Take care of the pence, and the pounds will take care of themselves.'" - Commentaries of AL

Diversity is mandatory, as the manifestation of unity.
We each have completely unique natures, which spring from the same Source, and should interact harmoniously with each other.
The Sun, strength & sight, light.

"A red rose absorbs all colors but red; red is therefore the one color that it is not." Aleister Crowley
"I'll be your mirror/Reflect what you are, in case you don't know" Lou Reed

We are all different
So that we may know ourselves better
We can't know ourselves
Until we stand apart.

The word of the Aeon - the silent Child.
Hadit utters the Magician.
Messiah! screams the Ape.

Down falls the fiery star into the soul of things.

Veiled eyes nail Satan to the Crucifix.
Those that see the word are abhorred.
The Pious know that the Devil has claimed them

Those that hear understand abominations are sacrament willfully given to the Sea.
To join the womb of the Silent Child.

"There must ever be division in the word", that is: division, separatness, is the most natural way how we perceive & understand manifest Light.
But look - this manyfoldness, and seeming separatness - it's all part of the same One Substance.

Enjoy it, sense it, experience it fully, this perceived Many, and also recognize the One which manifests through it, while you're experiencing the Many.
