Liber LXV, Cap. I, v. 37-39

37. So they will reproach thy servant, saying: Who hath set thee to save us?
38. He will be sore distressed.
39. All they understand not that thou and I are fashioning a boat of mother-of-pearl. We will sail down the river of Amrit even to the yew-groves of Yama, where we may rejoice exceedingly.
"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."

It may not be easy for the Adept to explain what (s)he is trying to do to the rest of the world, who aren't likely to understand. Birth and death, creation and destruction - these are all part of the plan.
The Sun, strength & sight, light.

Not only aren't other people, but the personality of the Master too isn't capable of perceiving the Wholeness and Unity in which the heart of the Master abides (the best it can do is - serve this Wholeness humbly with complete self-surrender, even though it can't understand it);it will continue to feel and react the way the personality does. All these things come and go; the embrace of the Heart and the Snake is motion eternal, filled with ever-expanding Joy.
