Liber LXV, Cap. I, v. 21-22

21. O the filthy one! the dog! they cry against thee.
Because thou art my beloved.
22. Happy are they that praise thee; for they see thee with Mine eyes.
"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."

Outside the modern art museum
A man is selling his own abstract paintings
The swirls are similar in some ways
To the swirls on other paintings inside
The palettes used in both sets
Bear some superficial resemblance

Inside, a patron scoffs
And says, "Any fool can
drip paint haphazardly on a canvas."
He's not wrong.
But he's not right either.
I can see the difference.

In initiatory terms, the absorption of light is amoral, and could (and probably does) vibrate in taboo ways. Outside the palate with which most paint their lives, the aspirant is apt to be met with projections and criticism as dark or sinister or bad. But to move freely with the light and vibrate warmly in its absorption is praiseworthy under the law of do what thou wilt.

The frequency of Adept's vibration - his/her very Life - is at odds with the habitual sense and concept of morality of the masses.
